Meditation, including yoga exercises, autosuggestion, Silva method, self-hypnosis, rebirthing, as a means of personal improvement, relaxation.
Translated from the Hebrew by Jonathan Chipman
"There are two main aspects to the association between mystical ecstasy and music in the ecstatic Kabbalah: on the one hand, music serves as an anology for the technique giving rise to ecstasy and the ecstatic experience; ont he other, it was an important element of the actual technique of Abulafia."
1. Music as an analogy for ecstasy evoking techniques
2. Music as analogy for prophecy
Moses Ibn Ezra dealt with music in two of his main books including Maqalat Al Hadiqah which was written during his exile to Castille. In he deals with the metaphor in the bible and includes philosophical, theological and philological interpretations. The discussion on music encompasses: the definition of sound, and the sonorous process of communication. Parts of the text is edited and translated. Human and animal sounds are discussed as are the voice and musical values of the vocals.
