Brief Content

The authors of the book, Dudley and Dean Evenson, are a married couple of internationally famous musicians and co-founders of the music label Soundings of the Planet. In addition to producing more than 80 albums and videos, they have performed their music and meditations worldwide with major personalities as the Dalai Lama, Deepak Chopra, and many others. They can rely on more than 40 years of creating music for meditation and yoga.

This remarkable book provides you with an enormous wisdom and knowledge about musical ways to calm your monkey mind. It’s a thorough guide that helps you live your life in a busy, chaotic environment and find inner peace.

The publication consists of 16 chapters. After an introductory part on meditation, you will learn how to immerse your meditation practice with sound. These topics include using your own voice (toning and chanting), mantra’s, affirmations, sound instruments like singing bowls, and recorded music.

In addition to great practical advice, a lot of subtle exercises have been included. The illustrations make the whole thing clear and attractive to go through.

‘Quieting the Monkey Mind’ is your essential guide in achieving a deeper state of tranquility and personal transformation!

This is such an interesting subject and there’s so much to learn about it. This book will certainly not leave you disappointed.

For me it’s earned its 5 stars solidly:
