Circular breathing naturally evokes a meditational mind set.

Agnieszka (Aga) Milogrodzka from Poland

I felt how my mind was elevated beyond my body and how my body melted away. The sound pouring from the didge turns into light and flows through all my chakras.

Again we've been using didgeridoo in a church setting over the past year. The sound is mysterious elemental space-defining and it fosters a contemplative mood.

Andrew from USA

It was strange. It was when I first learned the circular breathing. After a while I didn't even hear the didge. I lost my self I could of been floating in space for all I knew. Just like that I snapped back to reality. When I realized I was still playing I lost my breathing technique and I could not play any longer. I just sat in complete silence contemplating what exactly just happened. An out of body experience came to mind and then as fast as it entered my mind the thought was gone.

Andy Aitken from New Zealand

But - I definitely feel relaxed when I play

Angelique from France

It's like when I'm listening to buddhist monks songs... it vibrates so that I'm in a great peace.. I've not enough words!

I love deep didj sounds such as a#. I enjoy Didj and darkness preferably candle light as a focal point and simply drone myself to distant places.This meditation takes me away from today's havoc!

Anthony Kubiak from USA

Becoming focused calm expansive

Anthony from USA

I try to control the amplitude of an interference pattern with vocals for as long as possible within a circular breathing pattern. A cycle is reached where my breathing seems involuntary and my mind enters a state of serene where the playing seems instinctive. It doesn't last too long but it is unforgettable.

Antonio Mara from Italy

When I need to relax me after or before an exam for example I take my (poor) didjeridoo and I play I'm not a good player but also the sound that I do is enough for relax me

Ariel Grandi from Argentina

For me play the didgeridoo with the circular breath and like a trip just close the eyes and flow. It takes me to the place to a not-mind place not thoughts just sounds and vibrations.

Ashleigh from USA

I am new to playing the didge so I don't have the circular breath flowing but the sound I find it entrancing

Aurélien from Belgium

Indescribable! As a journey in an other planet

Aurelio Granito from Brazil

I have entry I'm peace state and add a respect for the instrument and aborigine culture!

I played long time concentrating on my breathing and on the vibrations. I felt so relaxed and in some point I saw some colours and I felt light like air. when I stopped it was like falling down to earth.

It's like I'm a child and I'm running across a forest with very large and old trees...

Barnaby Parsons from United Kingdom

I played the Didge to my young children in their early days and it seemed to relax them and make them wonder.

Bart Vrancken from Netherlands

Immense

Bas Piek from Netherlands

After al these years I am still an beginner but that's because there are so many things to do which are fun in this world. but when I play the didge with friends in the park on an nice evening it always start with making dancing rhythms and the later it gets the dancing stops and people just sit in the grass en listen and we play automatically slower rhymes but powerful and it brings peace and understanding around us (also very thirsty players because once playing you forget everything else)

A calming feeling seems to come with playing the didj.

Benjamin Prindle from USA

It was more of just a moment where I got rest and let it resonate through me.

Benji from Canada

It takes a few moments to get the feeling but after it sets in it is indescribable. It is very healing and relaxing as well as gratifying not only self but it seems to effect one surroundings.

Out Camping in the woods with a Didj player and a group of of my friends. Decided to go to the top of a mountain nearby and just relax and listen to the music. while listening I slipped into somewhat of a trance and was at peace with my self and everything around me I had not a care in the world but to just stay in that moment for as long as I could.

Brian from United Kingdom

Found that the heart rate is lowered quickly allowing entry into the meditative state earlier than other methods I am soon carried away to distant places

Brien Porter from USA

I was playing didge in my basement focusing on my breathing and clearing my mind of thought. I began to feel like I had left my body! I knew where my body was but I no longer was thinking about it. My mind was not where I usually kept it! I did not have to think about my circular breathing at all. It had become an involuntary function. My mind was outside and throughout my house traveling wherever there was an unfamiliar noise it was very curious. I was physically very relaxed and mentally very aware.

Bryan from USA

Wonderful soothing sounds filled with calming energy

Bryce from USA

My first experience was 2005 winter solstice. I had completely forgot about the world didj session but for some reason I had an urge to go and play that night. I decided to take my friend who had come back home from college out to a canyon so we could play. when we got there I started explaining the solstice/equinox world playing that I read about on your web site. then simultaneously we both yelled holy shit it is solstice! we started playing on my pvc didj alternating back and forth every 15 min. or so for about 1 and a half hours. I was crazy because when I would play I couldn't feel or hear anything that went on around me. it felt like I was floating and when me and my friend talked about it later he said he felt the same way when he was playing.

Candy from Canada

It is absolutely calming and peaceful. I find when I listen to the music of the didgeridoo I can free my mind of the day to day stress I typically endure.

That was great I feel like I'm disconnected from the rest of the people around me. I feel in my mind like a new men.

Chad from USA

I've just recently made a Didj from an old sailboard mast. I have no clue as to the quality of sound but my family and friends think it sounds good. So to answer the question for music and meditation. My wife thinks it very relaxing when I play.

It creates harmony like few other instruments. Depending on what frequencies you make it can bend your mind towards an array of different moods from stress to peace so it really depends on the occasion.

Eduardo Filgueira from Argentina

Incredible that's the most beautiful experience in the word!!!

Edward King from United Kingdom

It was surreal I felt as if I was not really there but on a higher plain. All I could feel was the rhythm flowing out of me and my body was and feet were moving as if controlled by someone else. My eyes were closed and it was like they were open and I was looking at an Aboriginal gathering. Everyone was dancing around a fire mimicking the movements of animals and it felt sounded as if I was really there dancing singing playing with them. Every so often there would be a chill that ran down the entire length of my body as if someone something was there with me as I meditated and played my didgeridoo. Sense of time was lost and I was totally absorbed into this realm.When I finished playing and came around I was completely relaxed I remembered everything but it wasn't like a dream because it was so vivid it was to real to be a dream. Something happened and I was a little spooked but I enjoyed it.

Elias from Sweden

It was amazing but first I had to learn circular breathing. at the beginning I didn't believe it could help at meditation but play and hear a didgeridoo is a completely amazing experience

Maya from Croatia/Hrvatska

I first played didge on this new years eve when my friend brought it to my home.. so I don't know much..couldn't played it in front of my friends.. I just couldn't make any sound.. so I went in my bedroom sat on the bed I decided just to relax and go with a flow.. I started to play and the sound went right out of the didge:) I felt soo happy and excited..to feel the vibes in my throat and chest.. I closed my eyes and made slow sounds with a bit of my voice - that was also amazing discovery to me... after I closed my eyes I saw beautiful women with black hair dancing around big hot fire.. as more I played the dance was more and more beautiful... I played for a while and thinking about all I see in my head.. I decided to go back to my friends to celebrate new year.. and at midnight we went to the window to see the fireworks.. it was amazing... but when I turned around I saw my bed is on fire! first I took the friend's didge to save it then I ran to take some water to put down the fire.. little heater turned the fire on!?... it was terrible to see everything around me burning.. but we managed to put the fire down after some time and that night I slept on the floor.. and now still cause I have no money to buy new one:) but never mind that.. when I saw the flames I saw again the women around the fire dancing so I took the didge again and played it some more thanking to whom ever that we didn't burn with the bed too... I don't know does it has the connection but it's rather amazing to me... what do you think?:)

The experience is difficult to describe because I lost a good deal of connection with my surroundings; I began to perceive the sound as coexisting with the shape and size of the opening between my lips and began to see my lips from the inside of my mouth. the sound became visible like a wall and I could move it.

Nick from USA

Very relaxing

Nicolás Harambour from Argentina

I do it almost everyday for a few hours when I come home from university. It's relaxing for myself and it creates an environment for my friends to meditate too.

Nicole from USA

A friend and I sat on the jetties in Galveston while watching the surfers art the waves. I felt as if I had control of the waves making each one perfect for the surf babies to enjoy.

Nigel from United Kingdom

I regularly use didge to meditate with to get rid of the stress from work

Olivier Nguyen from Canada

Well at first I got this "chromatic aberration" in the corner of the eye you know when things start to shake and transform in your sight. And while I kept blowing I clearly saw thick orange light surrounding my left arm the didj and my feet. It was pretty awesome and at that moment seeing an aura didn't seem supernatural to me at all; since then I try to be more respectful of nature.

Paco from Mexico

I felt like I was going straight to heaven

Pamela Kerr from USA

My 11 year old son is learning to play ours. His sound warms me.

When I am stressed I sit and play for an hour or so and it takes me away from this world to a place of peace and soothing sound

It is easy to transport ones self into other spaces and places while playing didj.

Peter Pugliese from USA

My Mother was recently diagnosed with lung cancer. I personally was a wreck. I hadn't played my didj in a while and I saw standing there. I picked it up a played for about an hour. I'm not going to say that it made everything ok but it sure did help.

Peter Smith from Australia

Playing the didge is great. The way the vibration runs through you is unique and I find it a meditative thing to do...

Anonymous from United Kingdom

Great fun- the children loved the sound

Philip from USA

It draws me into myself yet makes me sensitive to the sound of the didje--all the different layers of sound sharpens perception.

Far away in the forest with some of my best friends.. with a big fire:-)

The effects of the didgeridoo are soothing and I am able to transition into various states of consciousness with ease

Rafa from Mexico

Al principio ha sido algo complicado y por eso mismo ha crecido mi interes en el didgeridoo. Ahora quisiera aprender más de la técnica de este instumento tan rico y poderoso.

Rafael Janczak from Poland

Very soothing. Good tool in visual meditations - heck each time I play the didge now I naturally meditate.

Ralf from Switzerland

ZzzzzzzzzzzzZZZZZzzzzZZZZzzzz....it let me sleep well

Randy Benoit from USA

Not an exact science...but I do understand my calmness afterwards

Randy from USA

My wife says it calms her down and soothes her.

Remi from France

I often play didj for felling the vibration of the wood which make me calm. I don't know why but it is a real pleasure to feel the wood moving

Renato from Brazil

I can't describe it. it was a unique experience of surfing in others dimensions

Rhonda from Canada

It is a great relaxant after a stressful day

Ricardo Aste from Peru

Una paz y tranquilidad enorme.Es como si viajaras a otro planeta.

Rich from USA

I play everyday for a half hour and I always seem to trance out while I play almost in an alpha state.

Richard Craven from USA

Find it easier to enter the meditative state with this instrument playing than any other.

Richard Curtis from USA

I do relaxation and visualization meditation to didj music

Rick Thompson from Australia

I have listened to it's sounds on a number of times when I have felt lost in today's world it for me has a calming effect and brings me to a level where I feel at ease and at peace. It takes me to a place that I want to be.

Robbie from USA

Very relaxing sent me to a wonderful state.

Anonymous from USA

The weight of time is lifted. It is equal to practicing 4 or 5 meditation techniques at the same time. Very deep experience.

Robert Quintarelli from Spain

The day that I become a good player hopefully soon if it comes indeed I will use it for meditation it must be a fantastic experience

Robin Jones from Australia

Like all music I meditate to it has spiritual affect

Robin Palmer from USA

Great way to center myself...

Relaxation find the solution of question!!

Ron Greenberg from USA

For myself playing for long periods of time allows me to enter a trans-like state and playing for others to receive healing vibrations and a sound to meditate to.

Anonymous from United Kingdom

The music induced a deep hypnotic state with intense visual imagery

Ruben from Italy

After 1 hour of playing I can do everything better (work play other instruments etc...)

Rudi from Austria

Just listened on the key note and focuses my mind on the end of the didge while my eyes where closed I tried not to modulate the sound - suddenly my head opened up like a flower in the sun I felt endless and lucky it was like I stood on the highest mountain and saw down on the clouds. when I tried to keep this form of consciousness it stopped. I tried the same some weeks later - the same result but a slim buddha appeared in the middle of my visual field I was amazed again and thought to myself while my mind was absolutely empty and calm but awake at it can be - "yeah man what's going on this is better then any drug... I tried to support what I was doing but trying to DO nothing is not possible... the meditation broke down I think this is what is going on in Buddhist monk brains

Russell Chappell from USA

Relaxing and peaceful

Anonymous from Australia

Not really meditation but for listening to when I'm doing quiet stuff - gardening doll making mandala drawing cooking

Ryan Sanders from Thailand

Closing my eyes and focusing on the drone. Continuous drone with no breaks or movements up or down.

Sacha from Luxembourg

Complete relaxation just focused on the regularity of the breathing patterns...

Sam Boys from USA

It clears the mind & calms the body...It serves as a 'booster rocket' to blast me outside of the atmosphere of my own ego so I may orbit in Divine Consciousness.

Anonymous

I do yoga & run on a cross country team...the music is so uplifting and helps you feel like niravana...is achieved in your own little world.

Sam from USA

I enjoy to close my eyes and visualize the layers of sound coming from the didge trying to explore the music with my minds eye. I also like to play one beat over and over until I stop thinking about playing it it just flows out of me naturally.

Samuel from USA

I can easily spend multiple hours at a time playing completely oblivious to where and what I am. The sound of my didge permeates the air and becomes all I can sense. It's quite a transcendental experience.

Anonymous from Chile

Every night before I go to sleep I sit in my bed and play for at least half an hour this makes sleep profoundly

Sasa Zezelic from Croatia/Hrvatska

I put on some simple deep droning..It has to be something I'm not familiar with..the sound helps me relax and empty my thoughts and in that way it deepens the meditation.

Anonymous from France

I imagined I was in the bush and I was feeling everything (plants growing insects and animals breathing)

Sergueï Skrypnikov-laviolle from France

It was like your body and your soul leave the earth to enter in a strange world where every animal comes to you and tells how it begins with stars flashing everywhere. Real trance!

Shane from Malaysia

I use the didj regularly for meditation and I have had many different experiences when it is a very powerful meditation every atom of my body resonates with the vibration of the didge I feel much lighter and it is as if I can communicate with the universe in it's entirety.

Shari from Canada

When stressed playing has calmed me down

Stephen Malcolm from USA

Deeply satisfying through the chest resonance

Steve from United Kingdom

Once I cracked circular breathing and could play for extended times half hour usually the calmness and depth of meditation greatly improved

Steve from USA

I have been to the Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park where I saw a demonstration on playing the didgeridoo. I then purchased one and have started to learn to play this instrument

Steve from USA

When I play my didj surrounded by all of the the life of an ancient forest or deep in the dark chambers of a timeless underground cavern I am transported to a place words cannot accurately describe...I believe it is as close to the dreaming that a westerner can ever come and it gives me a feeling of deep connection to all good things that have ever existed...a connection to life.

Anonymous

More relaxation then meditation. But there have been some times when playing a few of my didj that I get out there and in that kind of meditative grove and everything goes loose and the sound starts flowing and getting deeper and stronger.

Stewart from United Kingdom

Gives a good focus to lead you in your inner journey. paint pictures.

Unexplainable spirit dreaming healing

It sounds crazy but it has changed my life. I had severe anxiety problems and since I began playing I have weaned myself from the meds I was on.

I dream of the forest and all the animals and hunting grounds and how things once were but I think like that every day. It puts me a peace and a place where no-one can reach me.

Thomas Gramstad from Norway

Calming soothing awakening/stimulating

Thomas Macat from Germany

It is good

Thomas from USA

The didjeridu eases my mind and soul for few brief moments. I'm hoping my interest will grow and continue to open my mind and my spirit to achieve an inner healing of my soul. I hope my interest and knowledge within Didjeridu will bring a guidance to increase my level of awareness towards an important life principle. And then I will be too big!

Tim Newman from Australia

I have anger problems sort of so I listen to Xavier and his beautiful didge music and most of the time I will relax me or put me to sleep

Tim from Belgium

It helps me ground faster...

Tom Gorham from Canada

Mesmerizing

Tom Maucher from USA

It took a while the first few times having to concentrate on the breathing but soon it became second nature and in no time I was OUT THERE!

Tom Phillips from United Kingdom

I get in a "relaxed" state of mind and play trying to concentrate vibrations through the core of the body. I find it easiest to "drift off" in a meditative state when very very tired.

Tony from Australia

Very soothing and calming

Tony from United Kingdom

Made me feel like there was a ball of sound floating near me. Very relaxing and made me tingle from head to toe.

Tony Kiser from USA

Nice I don't realize the amount of time spent playing until I stop and look at a clock.

Uwe Gerecke from United Kingdom

Meditated listening to music. The didgeridoo added a very shamanic/archaic dimension to it.

It feels weird when you get into some kind of trance while playing your didj. I don't get into a real deep meditation.

Zev from USA

I've taken my Didge to the cliffs in Dana Point and played it there where the it's sound mixes with the ocean the whales it creates a surreal experience. I've done that twice and each time have been fortunate to see grey whales or dolphins. My mind becomes very clear relaxed and ultimately refreshed
