Shamanism is an ancient spiritual system that helps one remain "heart centered” in the face of adversity—a hallmark of spiritual maturity that Don Juan referred to as traveling "a path with a heart.” The spellbinding shamanic stylings of Byron Metcalf, and guest artist Steve Roach, are combined with Hemi-Sync® to transport you into the infinite heart-space dimension. For optimum results, listen to this experiential composition in one session—preferably in a darkened, meditative environment. Instruments featured: buffalo and frame drums, hybrid toms, didgeridoo, ocarinas, udu, shamanic rattles, and percussion. Length: 73 minutes. Other titles by Byron Metcalf are: Deep Time Dreaming, Spirit Gathering, and The Shaman's Heart Program.

Byron Metcalf is a drummer, percussionist, recording artist, and record producer. With over 40 years as a professional musician, he has performed on gold and platinum albums in the pop and country fields and in recent years has been experimenting with the use of drums, percussion, and other sounds to induce non-ordinary (altered) states of consciousness in both ceremonial and therapeutic contexts.

Byron's 1998 CD release
Helpers, Guides & Allies continues to receive enthusiastic reviews in the shamanic, trance dance, and therapeutic communities, and was rated #4 in Backroads Music's 1998 "Best of Year” selections in the World Music category. Byron collaborated with award winning recording artist and sonic innovator Steve Roach on the critically acclaimed 2-disc epic The Serpent’s Lair (Projekt Records, Sept. 2000). Not Without Risk was Byron's second solo project. Wachuma's Wave (Spotted Peccary, 2003), a collaboration with German artist Mark Seelig (with Steve Roach), was chosen by Backroads Music as the #1 Release of 2003 in all categories. The Shaman's Heart with Hemi-Sync® (Monroe Products) was the winner of the COVR 2006 Visionary Award for "Best Inner Space/Mediation/Healing CD." This prestigious honor is considered on par with the Grammy Award within the Visionary/Healing Arts industry.

Background
Byron is also a transpersonal guide and educator, shamanic practitioner, researcher, and teacher. He holds a Ph.D. in transpersonal psychology, a master’s degree in counseling psychology, and is a certified graduate of Grof Transpersonal Training and Eupsychia Institute’s Psycho-Spiritual Integration programs. Byron has trained, studied, and worked with shamans, healers, and psycho-spiritual teachers from many parts of the world including Stan Grof, Jack Kornfield, Hameed Ali, John Davis, Ph.D., Angeles Arrien, Ph.D., Jose and Lena Stevens, Sandra Ingerman, and Don Americo Yabar. For over two decades, Byron has been intensely involved in consciousness research and spiritual development, specializing in the transformative potential of alternative states of consciousness. As a drummer, percussionist and recording engineer, Byron produces music for deep inner exploration, breathwork, shamanic journeywork, body-oriented therapies, various meditation practices and the healing arts. Byron is also a graduate advisor for Prescott College’s counseling psychology master’s degree program.

Byron recently retired from his professional counseling practice of over 20 years to devote his full energies to HoloShamanic Strategies, LLC, and its training program development, and also to allow more time in his recording studio.

Byron’s highly successful music business career spans over four decades and covers a wide variety of musical styles and genres. A professional drummer at age 15, Byron has played on several gold and platinum albums (most notably Kenny Rogers’ album The Gambler). He has performed at top concert venues including Carnegie Hall, The Greek Theater, The LA Forum, Universal Amphitheater, The Grand Ole Opry, and Wembley Arena (London), as well as headliner showrooms in Las Vegas, Reno, and Lake Tahoe. Byron also performed on The Tonight Show, The Grammy Awards, The American Music Awards, CMA Awards, ACM Awards, Fantasy Island, Hee Haw, Good Ole Nashville Music, and many others.

Since 1988, Byron has focused his musical talents toward the healing arts, creating musical sequences for Holotropic Breathwork workshops, and facilitating men’s workshops and shamanic drumming circles and ceremonies. During the past decade, Byron has been producing solo CD projects and collaborating with other artists including Steve Roach, Mark Seelig, with Ron Oates, Jack Coddington, and several other musical guests.

In 2005, Byron teamed up with Monroe Products to produce a Metamusic® version of Byron’s critically acclaimed The Shaman’s Heart (with Steve Roach) which includes Monroe’s Hemi-Sync® technology embedded in the music tracks. Monroe has also released a Metamusic version of Byron’s second solo project Not Without Risk (re-sequenced and re-titled as Spirit Gathering) in late 2006, as well as Wachuma’s Wave (re-titled Deep Time Dreaming) in 2007.

His latest project with Monroe, The Shaman’s Heart Program: The Path of Authentic Power, Purpose and Presence is the first-ever comprehensive home-learning program for developing one’s full capacity for soul-based and heart-centered living.

Byron and his wife/partner, Shawn Cardinal, live with their three canine companions, Kalibur, Amber & Chula in a beautiful retreat-like setting bordering the Prescott National Forest. Together they own and manage "The Prescott Center for the Healing Arts” — an office complex of healing arts professionals from a variety of disciplines.

Understanding the difference between the lines/labels/genres

We offer a variety of brainwave and audio guidance methods that help you experience peak brain performance and expanded awareness.

Metamusic® is more than music. From soul-stirring New Age to dramatic ambient, and the timeless popularity of classical, Metamusic combines delightful musical selections with Hemi-Sync® binaural beats sound technologies to entertain and benefit the listener. Many titles feature special blends of Alpha, Theta, and Delta frequencies to slow excess mental activity in order to facilitate meditation or support deeper, more profound relaxation. Other selections feature a predominance of Beta frequencies for focus and concentration, or Delta frequencies for sleep enhancement. Metamusic titles are experiential and may be used to facilitate a given application or simply for musical enjoyment (but NOT while driving or using heavy machinery).

Mind Food® titles do not contain music. These selections incorporate verbal guidance and/or subtle sound effects along with specially blended Hemi-Sync frequencies and sound patterns designed to help you achieve and sustain synchronized brain wave activity in both hemispheres of your brain. As with Metamusic recordings, Mind Food selections are available for a wide variety of uses ranging from meditations or focused attention to stress management and sleep enhancement, or for other practical everyday applications.

Human Plus®, or H-Plus®is a means of utilizing the immense power of the subconscious to affect change in your life. Each H-Plus (or Function Exercise) contains verbal guidance and precise combinations of Hemi-Sync® frequencies that gently draw you into an extraordinarily receptive, whole-brain state while establishing the Access Channel -- the ultimate communication channel to all levels of awareness -- mental, physical, and emotional. By design, the Access Channel is opened during each Function Exercise, allowing you to learn a different Function Command (short, verbal cue) ranging from controlling your appetite to increasing your energy. Once the Function Command has become encoded while the Access Channel is open you can then call upon or "activate" that Function at any time, on demand, in everyday life situations. The H-Plus series offers a different kind of pathway to new levels of freedom -- to becoming Human Plus.

Heart-Sync®exercises feature frequencies that focus on opening ourselves to our heart's intuition and energy. This line of products was developed by Laurie Monroe, who had a wonderful ability to live from her heart and encourage others to do the same. Heart-Sync exercises incorporate verbal guidance and subtle sound effects along with specially blended Hemi-Sync frequencies.

Album Series: These titles include multiple Hemi-Sync exercises in a series designed for specific applications. All include verbal guidance exercises mixed with Hemi-Sync® binaural beats and subtle sound effects or background music.

The Gateway Experience® In-Home Training Series is dedicated to developing, exploring and applying expanded states of awareness. Beginning with Discovery, there are six "albums" called Waves of Change. Each Wave (6 exercises) contains special Hemi-Sync® exercises designed to gently lead the listener into profound states of expanded awareness. While in such states, one has available a broader range of perceptions with which to solve problems, develop creativity or obtain guidance.

Each album is progressive in nature, building on the tools and techniques from the previous albums. Therefore, the albums must be used sequentially. The Gateway Experience Guidance Manuals, included with each Wave, prepare you for these exercises which help you to know and better understand your total self so you might enjoy a more fulfilling life.

What can you expect from the Gateway Experience?
"As much or as little as you put into it. Some discover themselves and thus live more completely, more constructively. Others reach levels of awareness so profound that one such experience is enough for a lifetime. Still others become seekers-after-truth and add an on-going adventure to their daily activity." -- Robert A. Monroe

Sacred Geometry by LightSOURCE Arts with Hemi-Sync®products are visual aids (DVDs and/or software) containing sacred geometry and other sacred symbols combined with Hemi-Sync® Metamusic soundtracks.

Brain waves and the Various States of Consciousness

Our brains are always generating Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta and Gamma beats at the same time. When we say a person is in a Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta or Gamma state, it only means that is the strongest signal being detected at that time.

Over the years, the Hemi-Sync® process has evolved into a sophisticated multi-layering of Hemi-Sync signals—"designer mixes" of sound frequencies, fashioned to be optimally effective for a given application. Naturally, Hemi-Sync sleep products incorporate predominately Delta frequencies; learning products predominately Beta, relaxation products predominately Alpha, and meditation products predominately Theta. However, these designer mixes are supplemented with special sound frequencies which enable the desired result. This is the "key" to the effectiveness of Hemi-Sync.

Beta brain waves are fast frequencies ranging from 14 cycles per second up to 38 cycles per second. Beta is your normal thinking state, your active external awareness and thought process. Without Beta you would not be able to function in the outside world.

Alpha brain waves are the brain waves of relaxed detached awareness, visualization, sensory imagery and light reverie. Ranging between about 9 cycles per second and 14 cycles per second, Alpha is the gateway to meditation and provides a bridge between the conscious and the subconscious mind.

Theta brain waves are the subconscious mind. Ranging from about 4 cycles per second up to 8 cycles per second, Theta is present in dreaming sleep and provides the experience of deep meditation when you meditate. Theta also contains the storehouse of creative inspiration and is where you often have your spiritual connection. Theta provides the "peak” in the peak experience.

Delta brain waves are the unconscious mind, the deep sleep state, ranging from about 4 cycles per second down to 0.5 cycles per second. When present in combination with other waves in a waking state, Delta acts as a form of radar – seeking out information – reaching out to understand on the deepest unconscious level things that we can't understand through the thought process. Delta provides intuition, empathetic attunement, and instinctual insight. It is also the brain wave most often associated with energy healing.

Gamma brain waves are the fastest of the brainwave frequencies ranging from 40 cycles per second to 70 cycles per second. They signify the highest state of focus possible. They are associated with peak concentration and the brain’s optimal frequency for cognitive functioning. They have been linked to having a great memory, an increased perception of reality, natural feelings of happiness, and compassion. In the Gamma state, your brain is running at full capacity.
