I really enjoyed chatting to fellow yoga instructor Monica on my latest podcast episode about the pineal gland and the benefits of activating it through tone singing.
The pineal gland is a small pine cone shaped organ in the brain and has been linked to our sleep wake cycles as well as the production of serotonin and melatonin.
Some call it the “seat of the soul” or the “third eye,” believing it holds mystical powers. Others believe it produces and secretes DMT, otherwise known as Dimethyltryptamine-a psychedelic so powerful that it was dubbed the “spirit molecule” for its spiritual awakening–type trips.
Revered amongst art work and sculptures across several religious settings such as the giant pine cone structure outside the Vatican, within ancient Egypts ‘Eye Of Horus’ pictures and Hinduism’s ‘3rd eye’ depicted on the Gods Shiva and other deities, it represents an awakening, or enlightenment, as the ability to see into higher realms of existence and consciousness.
