Golden Om Tour with Steve Gold

Steve Gold's new album, Golden Om, will transport you to a state of deep relaxation and inspired creativity.

"The universe is continually singing itself into existence” writes Lorin Roche in The Radiance Sutras, a new version of the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra. Dr. Roche interprets "OM" as “the primordial shout” or “the roar of joy that sets the universe in motion.” "OM," a word of solemn affirmation and respectful assent, is translated by "yes, verily, so be it" in the The Monier-Williams Sanskrit-English Dictionary.

Om is the eternally resonating soundtrack of the universe. Its endless waves are rippling with the rhythms of creation. We, as soul surfers, ride these waves into this embodied manifestation that we are.

"Golden Om" is composed of multiple vocal tracks layered as sound waves. It is designed to accompany meditation, relaxation, and inspire exhalted creativity. Meditation is a natural practice that produces positive changes in brain waves, breathing rhythms, blood pressure, and how one responds to stress.

By practicing just a few minutes of meditation each day you can become more attuned to yourself and the world. Find a comfortable place to relax for the next several minutes, enjoy the waves, and prepare yourself for the exuberant "Yes" that your life and self deserve.

"So enlightening to hear Steve's 'Golden Om.' It is luscious and gorgeous. Just perfect." Lorin Roche, Ph.D., Teaching meditation since 1969, Author of Meditation Made Easy, Meditation Secrets for Women, and The Radiance Sutras."
