About This Course

Course Description

Many people have asked me how I create my audio visualizations for courses like the Mindful Approach to Time Management.

It's something I taught myself over a number of years. I've now developed a methodology that works every time to get your listener into an altered and heightened state of mind.

If you are a coach, healer or therapist, this Audio Visualization course will allow you to reach a wider audience and generate passive income while you sleep from your recordings.
Follow these easy to follow steps in this course and you too will be able to create stunningly sounding audio tracks to take your listeners on meditative journeys and into altered states of consciousness.

This course consists of over an hour of instructional video with sample visualizations so you can experience the trance state you will be able to induce in your listeners.

The videos cover both technical aspects of how to use Audacity, which is a fabulous and free audio editor, and how to layer the sounds and use your voice to create the change of state in the listener with Audio Visual Presentation.

The course also contains some bonus audio tracks you can use in your own recordings.

What are the requirements?

  • any computer with Audacity installed
  • a microphone
  • headphones
  • your voice

What am I going to get from this course?

  • teaching non-technical people how to edit audio visualizations
  • helping coaches, healers and therapists to create MP3 tracks
  • to show how build a portfolio of saleable recordings to make passive income
  • to be both edutaining and enlightening

Who is the target audience?

  • coaches
  • therapists
  • healers
  • hypnotherapists

Section 3: Creating Visualizations
Listen to the Journey to the Akashic visualization next to experience how the trance state is induced.

Listen to the full visualization deconstructed in the previous lecture.

After you listen to it, make notes about the various states of consciousness it took you into and then listen to the previous lecture again. This will reinforce the learning nicely.

This version of 100 Years of Ermintrude was recorded with the actual, basic microphone I showed you in the introductory video.

I'm including it here as an example of what you can achieve with Audacity with really basic equipment and, in my case at the time, not much knowledge. I recorded it back in 2006 when I first came across Audacity.

Since then this audio story has ended up as an iPhone app and I have written two sequels and it's now available as text only for the Kindle.

Instructor Biography

Tom Evans, Author, bookwright, catalyst

Tom is an author, author's mentor, creative catalyst and writer's unblocker.

He has been called, by others, a healer, a modern day mystic, a seer and the wizard of light bulb moments.

Using a set of elegant techniques, he teaches both how to tap into an unlimited flow of inspiration and how to make ideas actually come to fruition.

He has spent 30 years in the cutting edge of product development in the broadcast and Internet industries. He has a knack for explaining complex concepts in simple terms. More recently has been researching the psychology and physiology behind inspiration and is lifting the lid on the mystery of where ideas, and thought, come from.

His passion is in making the esoteric (unknown & hidden) into the exoteric (known & understood).

He has written three books on the creative process.

Blocks explores what stops us being creative and how to get over our fears and procrastination to tap into our creative flow.

The Art and Science of Light Bulb Moments is all about those special types of thought that appear in less than a second, yet change our world forever- and how to stop good ideas from getting away.

Flavours of Thought is an exploration of the different types of thought that appear in our heads.

His latest books, Planes of Being and This We Know, are philosophical explorations into what it means to be human and where we might be going as a species.

He has also written a book of poetic life stories, called 100 Years of Ermintrude, which explores our relationship with time. A short story lifted from his forthcoming novel, Soulwave, explores how we got here and where we are going.

His latest book, along with its companion Udemy ecourse, is called The Zone. It is an exploration of how we get in that special creative space and how we stay there !!
