Name and Country Have you used the didgeridoo (or its music) for meditation? Comments
Aaron from USA Yes I use the didgeridoo to meditate almost daily. It takes me away into a place that is no longer my mind my thoughts my world. I tend to feel as if I am one with the universe.
Aaron from New Zealand Yes Sends you to another world
Adrian from Australia Yes It is a great way to go into deep meditation - very visual.
Adrien from France Yes More and more conscious of my breath and of what I m expressing expression of my body music and rhythm that is beside more and more conscious of myself it was like introspection or internal trip I was aware of more and more elements of myself at the same (body consciousness the way I express myself the wind the ground...) Time and could play with them express them into music creativity is also for me a way of meditating looking for a source of inspiration and improvisation but meditation means finding treasurer inside and peace the circular breath lead to that the nature of time is not linear it is circular like for seasons the earth turning around the sun by circular breath we are able to go deeper into time and to access the dimension and from within that who link us with the cosmos and mother earth we enter into dreamtime

Anonymous from United Kingdom Yes Self calm
Alasdair from United Kingdom Yes Healing/spiritual intentions in future

Andy from Ireland Yes More relaxing while driving in heavy traffic it really helps me

Benoit Bégin from Canada Yes Better than any other kind of meditation I tried.
Betsy Sauther from USA Yes I like to play at the moon at night. It puts me in another state of awareness and feels magical.

Bjorn Restad/former Noremsaune from Norway Yes I've been on a recording done in a sound chamber(the Vigeland Mausoleum in Oslo) and also used it for this purpose in concerts and gatherings

Bruce from USA Yes Not much to say...it just relaxes me
Bryan Scotson-smith from United Kingdom Yes Great calming effect
Camilo from Chile Yes It really helps to get a deep state of meditation I guess because of its deep and vibrating sound that shakes harmonically and peacefully every part of the body.
Carlos Guillermo from Mexico Yes I use to make first movement meditations then I use to make sound massage over the participants then they talk me about their experience.

Claude from France Yes I 've gonna near to earth
Clement from France Yes After a while the sound goes through you and around you everything seem to be included in that waves of sound.
Cody from USA Yes It is magical! It is a very different kind of meditation for me but I feel that is in a way more intense. I generally feel especially "cleansed" afterward and very attuned. I am just discovering it but I feel that it has already changed my life!
Cory from USA Yes Some days I will continue the drone but occasionally interspersing with one or two 'sounds' that I have been practicing. I practice deep breathing concentration (and concentration dealing with meditation such as focusing on a central point). I use the didj for its low tone/drone - constant sound (almost like the OHM).
Anonymous Yes Euphoric feeling probably related to the oxygenated or lack of oxygen in the body after playing....harmonic vibrations still remain in the body for extended periods......awesome!
Curt from USA Yes Used in Church worship (Christian)
Cynthia Tierra from USA Yes It is soothing to sit and be at peace with your didj.
Dallas from USA Yes If I have a hard time getting to sleep I have to play. I refuse to just take pills to help me sleep. As I am typing this it's nearly midnight and I can't sleep. So - I am going to go play.
Anonymous Yes I find the music of the didj to be calming both just to listen to and to play
Daniel Cohen from USA Yes The continue use low tone drone is relaxing. It is also relaxing to try to impart harmonics. Of course the act of long period playing requires a relaxed & controlled breath which contributes to concentration on the task and relaxing the body mind and soul.

Anonymous from USA Yes I have CDs that have meditations on them that also contain didj music
David from USA Yes I prefer silent meditation for doing 'formal' meditation--meditation for its own sake.
David from USA Yes I participate in the Worldwide Didgeridoo Meditation here in Omaha with a few other friends. It is very relaxing and fun to experience.
David Yates from Canada Yes Well I plan to. I'm not a sit-and-clear-my-mind meditator. Actually I come from a dance background so my personal "form" of meditation is more dance-oriented - connecting with the present. I've started going more into music recently and the didj really calls to me and seems to me to be a way to channel some powerful forces as well as connecting with the moment the earth and others.
Derrick Jackson from USA Yes I have bad anxiety problems and it really settles me down when I need to relax instead of taking meds

Dustin from USA Yes I used to occasionally have nasty back spasms that would make it difficult to walk and sometimes breathe for a few days until it settled down. The last time this happened I found that if it started to tense up I could pick up the didj and play a drone for 5 minutes or so which would help me relax and ease the inflammation significantly. Very nice way to meditate!

Anonymous from Australia Yes I have a CD that is used for this purpose.
Emilian Skrzynecki from Poland Yes 1. For autumn 2009 worldwide meditation - it was my first time worldwide meditation. It was very instructive session - I took care of environmental pollution. I stated that people don't respect don't hear the Nature - that fact has filled my heart with some of sadness during that meditation... The autumn is the season with some sadness - day is shorter laves on trees are gone some birds are gone...It is also time for preparing to hibernate or gathering power for surviving the winter and preparing to wakening and blooming again in a springtime! It is excellent way to spend free-time it is a good time for relax and leisure or even improve a health status! (anti-stress therapy). It gives me lot of joy; I love these deep vibrating intriguing and mysterious sounds!!!
Eric Boucher from Canada Yes I have had the chance of sharing time playing the didj on Earth healing rituals reconnecting spirits of many geographically distant areas back together. Also asked for healing of different energies related to people places and spirits. I've had many occasions of being taught song lines and and rhythms cycles through conscious dreaming and awaken visions. Through out these experiences I was often visited by entities sometimes human sometimes animal sometimes others. These connections clearing a more concrete path between the realities with and by which I live.
Eric Frisbee from USA Yes I just love to hear them being played I just sit and close my eyes and listen and feel the sound.
Eric from Canada Yes My experience with the Didj is a meditative one even if that was not my intention. The sound is like a chant it feels like the rumblings of the earth itself. The drone touches me to the core. Like a massage from the inside.
Erik from USA Yes I'll play long-sustained drones for about 3-4 minutes. This places me into a very relaxed state. I then continue to sit and meditate. This is something I learned from Phil Jones. Using the didge in this manner has helped me get back into meditating on a regular/systematic basis.

Forest from USA Yes It soothes the throat lungs and mind.
Fred Ashplant from USA Yes I always play alone or with a group in the World Meditations. Equinoxes and Solstice

Garrett from USA Yes I was focused on playing but I played for others who were meditating and they said it felt great

My main instrument is the Double Bass Violin so I know about the benefits of meditation using a music instrument. and have not yet developed sufficient strength and stamina for playing the didge long enough to call it meditative.
Geoff from Canada Yes Sometimes it takes more than 15 minutes of playing to relax and stop going over everything that happened in a day. Usually start w just a drone then move on to some animal noises. If time permits will play along to a CD

Jake from USA Yes Basically as stated before. I also participate in the Didj circle meditation so often times I have a group with me so the drone is continuous. its nice.
James Balducci from USA Yes I find it to be a sound very close to nature and nature is the source. Of course it being played through a speaker is nothing like hearing or playing it in person.

Anonymous from Canada Yes Hard to put into words. While I'm playing I usually "watch the grass blowing in the wind and the patterns match the sounds that I am making. Most ly on an unconscious level.
