Name and Country Feedback
Anonymous from Canada Breathing deeper and the vibration helps me to tune in
Aaron from USA When I began playing the didge it was all about meditation and breath.
Anonymous Not a very good player, but will get the hang of it.
Adrienne from USA Clear my mind of thought, and listen to the sounds being channeled through. Trance like state established and maintained. Frequently amazed at the sounds that are sent through.
Alex from USA I listen to myself playing, it is great to concentrate solely on the sound emanating from the didj, it is one of the few things that I can concentrate exclusively upon (i didn't see this field when I was answering the question about live didj music for meditation, I believe that I qualify for both though?)
Anonymous Exhausting but gorgeous
Alexis from Canada Profoundly purifying experience
Allan from Brazil Its me playing..so...none other thing its so good in the Earth

Andi Branston from United Kingdom It is really easy to focus on empty head (no internal dialogue) when I play.
Andrea Cammarata from Italy Optimus
Anthony Curmi from Malta Hard to explain in words. It's like letting a real hidden you express himself, no limits.
António Campos from Portugal I'm still learning how to play,but the sound of the didgeridoo is very similar to the ôm sound that I use in Yôga.I love to ear the drone sound of the didgeridoo.but I'm fascinated with the the others sound that it produces
Anonymous from Iceland I find that the drone of the didj helps me to block out other thoughts. My world transcends into a world of pure rhythm and tone. And every nuance of the didj weaves into the experience. Creating a very peaceful state of mind.

Bruce Rich from USA Wonderful
Cameron from United Kingdom Didj music allows the world around you to melt away, it enables you to focus on your breathing and to clear your mind and keep it empty. It also enables me to feel like I am 'Deeper' into the meditation. The drone is hypnotic, your tempo and style of play give form and shape to the meditation
Carolyne Williams from USA My breathing became balanced, I became balanced, and afterward, my friend and I heard a didg playing by itself (we were not on drugs!) He said that happens all the time to him.

Dale from Australia Just relax and play
Dale Elliott from Australia I used my own pace to relax me.
Dan House from USA Long slow drones
Dan Stoner from USA Closing my eyes to enhance my audio senses and draw mental images while playing in so rewarding, especially when you're able to add to the sensual experience via didj sound waves which you can actually, physically feel.

Daniel from United Kingdom Helps focus the mind, get totally absorbed into the sound and vibe, become one with the instrument and with nature.

David Watts from United Kingdom Sit in room with good acoustics and let your lungs and mouth free your mind and soul
Dean from Australia Not yet just learning
Dean Fargo from USA Found the vibration soothing
Dennis from Australia Cannot feel the vibrations as well whilst playing, but clears the perceptions somewhat. Am looking forward to enhancing this as I improve my playing.
Anonymous from USA I just get in to a rhythm and don't realize I am still playing and drift off
Denny from USA See above. I also stage a didj and drum circle twice a year for the local park district. I bring lots of PVC didjes for the children to play and we all have a great time around the fire playing didj and telling dreamtime stories.
Diego from Argentina It concentrate me and let me express in quite way. It is very good because it helps to take control in the meditation and show how it goes. May be as another instrument but is much easy to play than piano for example so I can concentrate more in meditation.
Dominik from Germany I often pack my car with my didj and my girlfriend, sometimes friends too, and go to a place a few kilometres away from my home to play the didj and some drums. This place is a sunny field of grass and flowers beside a mixed wood and just perfect to relax and play without getting disturbed.
Dorian Moriarty from USA Occasionally I sit in the corner playing the single drone constantly to relax.
Doug from USA The sound is incredible, though I have a difficult didj to play, I'm still struggling to circular breath, I can do that on brass instruments but not this didj, yet. but I'll get it eventually
Douglas Burson from USA Still not yet able to really deeply meditate while playing my didj...I'm probably too much caught up in figuring out how to circular breath (i sort of have congested frontal sinuses which make it difficult to breath in through my nostrils)..not to mention that the didj I have is apparently quiet difficult to play.... I don't play that plastic imitation one I have because the sound is just yucky!
Douglas Michon from USA I was too preoccupied with my breathing.
Dustin Henderson from USA Often...on a calm starry night I might sit and play the A for hours until I reach that perfect equilibrium...
Dustin from USA A month or two ago my back started bothering me greatly. Just one of those spasms you get sometimes that puts your back muscles in knots for a few days, and leaves you nearly immobile. I called in sick from work, since the chair I have there only makes it worse, and instead stayed home.
With extra time on my hands, I picked up one of my PVC didgeridoos (I LOVE my low G), and just started playing and playing. After a matter of a minute or two, I had totally forgotten about my back. I played for 10 minutes or more, and when I was done, I found that my back had MUCH relaxed.
The rest of the day whenever I would get really stiff, I would just pick up the didj and play, loose track of everything, and relax.
Dzarul Emran from Malaysia When I feel stress,i play didgeridoo.then after played, I feel very relax n comfort. peaceful in my mind.

Gary from Australia Whenever I'm feeling stressed I just pick up one of my didges and after a minute or two I feel a whole lot better..... it's that simple!
Gary from Australia Feeling of calmness and I feel very earthy almost tribal...very Australian
George from USA Breath control and sounds all play a role in my meditation. I've tried just sounding very long drone notes on the didj while I empty my mind. I'm try adding the circular breathing now. The sound resonated through the body. Reminds me in a way of some chanting meditation I've done.
George Haddad from Lebanon I practice Yoga breathing, playing didj can give the same meditative and cleansing results

Hector Adrian Peralta from Argentina Relajación
Henk Stange from Netherlands It give me a pleasant feeling

Ian from USA I have not come to a point in my ability to play the didj in which I can stop focusing on maintenance of the sound.
Anonymous from Germany Name it a first try....it felt very good and I was in a very relaxed state of mind afterwards
Jack from USA The same as above..but with the personal satisfaction that I am doing it myself

Jai Kartar Singh from Chile I started letting the sound do his job, transporting my soul to where the sound wants to, then I added some words, like sa, and prolonging the sound with this vibration.

Joan from USA I don't do it very often, but it really takes me away from everything and I "come back" refreshed
Anonymous Playing=meditating
Anonymous Long, sustained circular breathing helps me to "switch off".
John Heusler from USA I have definitely brought myself to another plane of life with my own playing. First time it was a bit scary but since it has happened several times now I am welcoming it with open arms.
John from USA Playing relaxes me after a hard day. I play into a corner to large vase to get the back reverb.
John from USA The feeling I get is an immediate sense of awareness within myself and the Earth. It's a connection that can hardly be measured in words.
John from Canada I can't describe the feeling really. It almost becomes effortless after a while as I get carried away while my mind relaxes and body and breathing becomes absorbed into the didj.
Anonymous from Germany Silence in my head, body feeling of being wider or bigger
Jon Harnum from USA Very calming, focus-inducing, after 15 min a sort of trance state takes over. Magic!
Jon from USA But plan to start
Jon from USA Hen a good drone builds, I can just take off into my own personal realm where noone cares or criticizes me.
Jon from USA It's a gut level feeling.

Lidia from France The vibrations made me feel relaxed and happy
Lloyd Goldstein from USA Just long tones and deep breathing last few days.
Louis-Philippe from Canada I sat on my bed, in front of the mirror, I take a deep breath and I blow in my didg. I felt the vibration in my mouth, my arms and my toes. I let the inner rhythm take place and rapidly I become really connected to my center and I feel grounded. In the same times, the toughs just disappear. Even on a really short period, this meditation light me up deeply.
Anonymous A couple of different ways.
One is just getting grounded and knowing my breath and feel of everything.
Second is letting the sounds just come as a form of expression to de frag feelings and thinking.
Three Is listening to what feels like the right sound and resonance.
Anonymous I sit and play with my eyes closed and relax thinking about various things.
Luke Neill from Australia I play the didj often to calm myself. Using spontaneous thoughts, if any creep up, to guide the music and lull thoughts back towards the basic drone. Works wonders for stress.

Michael Del Quadro from USA Helps me to put everything more into perspective. I let my ideas flow through my mind without pondering on any of them; while pouring air through my didge.
Michael Forster from USA It teaches me about myself and teaches me about itself. In a way it is similar to Ayahausca in being a teacher of breath where A is a teacher of the plant. It has captivated me and I continually seek out didj sounds whenever I am at a festival or hear music.
Michael from Australia I have used it to relieve stress from work. Also when my mother passed away with Cancer I used it to take away her pain and so she could talk to me.
Anonymous When I finish I feel to go out of another world, like if I enter and another space
Anonymous Nice. Time flies.
Mikko from Finland But I sure would like to!
Mil Grindstaff from USA I was on a river one time when the sun was near setting and many fish began to feed quite near where I was sitting. I then realised that the sound seemed to attract life forms. Taking a dig to the out doors seems to have a calming effect on me

Paul O\'Keefe from Canada I find that the breathing is very relaxing and I lose track of time.

Anonymous from USA It's relaxing
Ralph from USA I mix vocals and drones and I play in pulses till I find a chord that strikes me just right.
Richard Gillis from USA I tend to feel the musical drone instead of concentrating on technique. I establish a rhythm with the pace of my circulating breathing and hum from the back of my throat.
Richard Grossman from USA Sometimes a bit frustrating, but with time it becomes a very deep practice. I often wonder if that aspect of didge playing and listening isn't something that needs to be encouraged and furthered. It would seem to me to be a helpful adjunct in the various communities where drug and alcohol addiction are such a problem.
Rob Pelletier from Canada Peaceful and happy
Robbert-Jan from Netherlands I like it very much..But if you play, you hear the sounds much different... (sometimes..)
Roberto Fioravanti from Canada This is more it! to me playing is a form of meditation on it's own

Ron J Berkhout from Netherlands Not meditation exact, but it always relaxes me.

Sean from USA Increased concentration
Anonymous from United Kingdom Same as above: Improvisation, I play and I let my mind free to think and produce images.
Anonymous from USA The only time I meditate is when I'm playing my didj. I just sit on the ground in a corner usually so I can hear myself better and just play. After awhile I'm not even thinking, sound is just flowing and its weird. There really is much else like it.
Anonymous As said above, I believe any time I play the didj continually for more then 15 mins it induces a state that I can very strongly relate to a meditation.
a feeling of deep serenity, enhanced senses, refined alertness all come as the affect of a good didj session.
Shawn Nelson from USA As a way to "retune" myself after a days work or errands. Kind of like a "tuning fork" effect or like a Tibetan bell, If I find myself out of tune or "stuck in my head", I will play my Didj to re-entrain myself to my true center and to keep myself from getting "off center".
Siebe from Belgium It feel peaceful.
Siobhan Mcelwee from USA I totally lose track of time/space. Easy to achieve a "non-thought" space
Anonymous from USA I was in an extremely high consciousness state and felt very open, and my boyfriend began instructing me on how to use my tongue and lips and I got it right in a few minutes and I practiced for a good half an hour or longer and felt like I was making some progress. But that was the only time I ever attained that level with the didj myself so far.

Trey Sansom from USA It is cleansing to only concentrate on keeping the didj going it clears everything out of your mind
Tuomo from Finland Consciousness transformation
Tyler Loube from Canada I do almost always play for my own meditation. It allows me to clear my mind at little bit faster than silent meditation, or chanting alone.
Valentijn from Netherlands I got real calm and I had some flashbacks. Memories, bad and good, the bad ones I could put aside and forget. The good where placed in a 'safe spot'.
Vic Cherikoff from Australia In the past, when I'd been playing for a while over time, I found it to be very relaxing. But the more you play the better the relaxation.
