Peaceful Moment is an audio track consisting in various sounds that should help people relax or reduce the stress and tiredness of a long day. Piano sounds or sounds that imitate water streams and meditative synthetic pads will ease the way to a deep relaxation and meditation. The 528 Hz Love frequency will penetrate deep inside the listener, bringing him peace and harmony.
These are the claims made by Gaia Meditation, the company behind the development of this audio track. The company also sells other sound tracks for different purposes, including Chakras stimulation, healthy sleeping patterns, or meditation.
The track can be used for the meditation practice or as relaxing background music, but it is stated that it does not contain Brainwave Entrainment. However, the same audio is available with binaural and isochronic tones which are considered brain entraining techniques.
We have to say we’re not really satisfied with the level of details provided on the official site. It looks like there are three versions of this track: the standard containing this meditative pads, piano sounds and water streams imitating sounds, a version based on isochronic sounds (which are considered a brain entraining technique), and a Pack (based on binaural sounds, also used within Brain Entrainment therapies). But we’re not exactly sure, as the information on the official site is a little too vague.
Peaceful Moment contains the following ingredients: Not applicable.
The sound used in this track are piano sounds, water stream imitations or synthetic pads, all believed to induce the calming state the product promises. However, there’s also a version that uses binaural or isochronic tones and these sounds have been shown to help the brain align to the brainwave frequencies specific to the relaxation/ light meditation state.
A detailed description of the product is not provided by its developer. Our online research regarding binaural and isochronic tones has shown that these are popular Brain Entrainment techniques used at this time that showed promising results in guiding brainwaves to easily reach certain frequencies. These frequencies are characteristic to specific states such as relaxation/light meditation, alertness, deep meditation/sleep or very deep meditation/sleep.
Binaural beats were also believed to improve hemispheric synchronization, which promotes genius thinking and higher clarity of thought due to a more balanced use of logic and creativity. The right hemisphere is used during creative thinking, while the left one represents the logical part of the brain. Isochronic tones are characterized by fast pulsing, turning on and off rhythmically. Both therapies are considered more efficient when headphones are used as sound pollution is reduced in the presence of this equipment.
- Sound therapies are a very popular method used for promoting meditation and relaxation.
- There are very little side effects that could be caused by sound technology.
- Scientific evidence looks very promising at this time (although more clinical trials and research are recommended for a full understanding of the mechanism of action and effects).
- Peaceful Moment track can be immediately downloaded from the official site and it comes with a 60 days money-back guarantee.
- The evidence in this field is not abundant, as this is a relatively newly researched relaxation therapy.
- The official site provides incomplete and rather ambiguous information about the versions in which this product is available and how they are different from each other.
Peaceful Moment appears to be a simple way of relaxation after a stressful day. It does not imply the use of uncomfortable equipment, although headphones are recommended for increased effectiveness. A Peaceful Moments Pack that features all versions is available for the price of $20.97. From our understanding, the standard pack is based on sounds that imitate natural sounds, piano, and other synthetic tones to help achieve the desired state faster and with the least of effort. A version based on binaural and isochronic tones is also available. The price for the isochronic track is moderate ($12.47).
