Healing Arts Experience

Having a multifaceted career as an international DJ, musician, composer, label owner, videographer, Qi Gong instructor, speaker, humanitarian, pro-activist, healer, and Audio Pharmacologist™, Shannon Harris explores obscure territories, regions, genres, sciences, styles, and traditions through his work in the healing arts.  His journey within the fields of art, science, therapies, and music span over three decades, six continents, and numerous cultural and spiritual traditions.  Since 2003 Shannon has been initiated into many traditional indigenous healing art modalities. In 2012 he developed a unique vibrational massage technique using photonic light, heat, custom brain entrainment, physical body & energy resonance along with Qi Gong healing.  Since 2016, his primary focus has been on developing/instructing his unique style of Audio Pharmacology™ Spiraling Serpent Medical Qi Gong at festivals, conferences, centers, schools, and health & wellness fairs both locally and internationally. Additionally, he treats clients with his sound, light, and heat therapy protocol.

In 2018, he was invited to study the art of Bhakti Yoga privately under the great BV Ashram Maharaj in India where he became a resident instructor at the Golden Avatar Academy.  In 2017, Shannon received an invitation to privately study the art of Hungry Monk Yoga under a 34th Generation Shaolin warrior, Shifu Wang Bo in Canada. Also in 2017 Shannon travelled monthly throughout the USA and taught different forms of Qi Gong, yoga, meditation, sound sciences, and therapy. Locally, Shannon treated clients in the Chicago-land area and travelled monthly to Seattle and LA treating clients on the West coast. Between 2009-2018 Shannon’s teachings took him to Brazil, Canada, Kenya, India, and London. In 2018, he was selected to present the first QI Gong class at the BOLD Conference, North America’s largest health festival.  He also instructed Audio Pharmacology™ workshops in Chicagoland schools, Harvey, and Summit Illinois as well as University of Chicago Gray and Logan Centers.  In 2019 his Audio Pharmacology™ research was featured in the University of Chicago’s Gray Center Portable Gray Magazine edition entitled “Noise Nomads.”

Holographic Audio Pharmacology

For those of you who know me (Adam Bigelsen), you know that I am a musician and music has been a huge part of my life. The last bunch of years I have been really excited to learn more regarding the world of sound therapy. One of the things I did recently, was that I installed transducers in my massage table to create a sound therapy table to experiment with. We have definitely seen some interesting things in the blood after tuning fork sessions and sound baths . As I was laying in bed the other night doing some research, I came across a unique sound healer, Shannon Harris. Shannon does what he calls Audio Pharmacology. As it just so happens, Shannon was going to be in town the next five days. Josh and I attended Shannon’s lecture, as well as a Theta Wave Medical Qi Gong session, and we each scheduled private Audio Pharmacology sessions with Shannon….. ALL AWESOME! We have done Medical Qi Gong sounds and movement before, but Shannon added color visualization with each organ, and incorporated brainwave entrainment music as well…..AWESOME! (He has a dvd available) Of course we looked at blood before and after the private sessions, and the results are below. I had a knee issue in particular that has been lingering. At this point I’m going to let Shannon explain a little bit about what he did during our sessions, and then Josh will explain the results as seen in the blood.

For Adam’s Audio Pharmacology™ session he pointed out having knee pain from an old injury.   I tend to work on clients on different energy/body levels at the same time.  During his 1 hour session I used my Audio Pharmacology™ 5 Element system music in which he listened to music tuned to the TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) energy/organ/emotional system while working directly and around the knee area with a deep tissue/muscle massage utilizing blood/qi/circulation frequencies. I applied a tuning fork to the higher chakra areas to induce a relaxed brainwave state during the treatment. There was moderate heat applied during the sound massage followed by nano crystal laser therapy along with photonic light therapy in the area as well. This process affects the patients internal healing processes on many different levels simultaneously.

The Kotamo is a combination of 3 different instruments: the koto, the tampura and the monochord. The monochord was redeveloped by Pythagoras going as far back as ancient Egyptian (Kemetic). The tampura origins are from India and is used in accompanying other traditional instruments. The Koto is a classical Japanese melody string instrument. This instrument bridges 3 cultures in which all three instruments purposes where primarily used/played with the intention for spiritual music, esoteric music/studies and cultural musical performances.

I was blessed with the opportunity of having a unique version of the Kotamo designed where all 3 instruments reside on one side. In the Serenity Bliss journey I’m using this instrument with a special array of acoustic and electronic instruments to induce different brain/breath/body entrainment states of being. This is great for meditation, Qi Gong, yoga, thai chi, studying, free-form dancing, ballet and relaxing.

INTERVIEWS/FEATURES

Shannon Harris interview featured in the first edition of the University of Chicago Portable Gray Magazine along with a solo Audio Pharmacology™ performance at Fulton Recital Hall.

I would like to extend a special thanks to Ytasha L. Womack for interviewing me for the University of Chicago’s Portable Gray magazine. I also would like to thank Seth Brodsky and staff for inviting me to be the featured performer yesterday at their launch party in the amazing Fulton Recital Hall. It’s my second time bringing out the Sacred Triune and so far it seems to land me in amazing spaces/places. The first performance made its debut on NBC and now Fulton Recital Hall for the University of Chicago’s music department.

I was shocked to see a famous renowned composer, Augusta Read Thomas, in the audience whom I met last year when recording audio interviews for the Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra. She had many questions about my custom instrument.

Sound Shower Journey at Ecstatic Dance Chicago

Here’s some footage at the end of my Easter Sunday Audio Pharmaqcology™ Sound Shower Journey at Ecstatic Dance Chicago with Roman Boro, Debi Winston Buzil and friends. I Audio Pharmacology™️ sound shower journeys uses ancient and future technology to enhance brain/body entrainment experiences. I plan to continue to heal myself and the world one sine wave at a time!

Here’s another Audio Pharmacology™️ Sound Shower Journey at Ecstatic Dance Chicago.  I performed an entrainment of Lung and Liver frequencies to a packed house! As usual with the Lung frequencies some people started coughing releasing things.

Last night was next level at the Afrofuture! Trust me the dynamics in stimuli was unlike a traditional party or event. You had to be there to get what I mean.  We sold out the Adler Planetarium with different events, lectures, games and interactive activities in the entire place.

Sacred instrument tuning in nature (Tanpura/Monochord)

Relationships are intimate encounters with all things. Audio Pharmacology™ is my spiritual commitment/marriage to SOUND/MUSIC/HEALTH/SCIENCE. I usually spend lots of time with different instruments alone. Yesterday I decided to switch it up and take her to the lake front sharing my experience with my tribe on Instagram LIVE and Marco Polo. Haha. Interesting that only one group of ppl stopped to ask me what I was doing. ?. Everyone else stared and kept it moving.

Sound massage, heat, stones, reflexology, music, acupressure and Qi Gong Energy Healing. In this video I’m applying Qi Gong energy healing on the client. Notice her moving her feet and the deepening of the breath. She had stagnation on the lower left extremities where I applied the sound and was moving energy from the lower right to the heart after giving her foot reflexology. Audio Pharmacology™️ is quite complex in how different energy systems combine to induce an endogenous pharmacotherapy effect. The staff noticed her limping in and afterwards walking properly out. Haha. This was in 30 minutes. I suggest no less than 1 hour sessions 1-2 times a week for about a month to have this type of energy work transform old internal patterns. I’m at the Natural Healing Centers on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Wow I just finished teaching my Qi Gong Class to seniors/elders who are HIV positive. They are so upbeat and I’m amazed at having the opportunity to provide them with tools to help them through the process. I gave them a copy of my CD and they were so appreciative. I’m personally very moved by the experience. It touched me deeply how they ask if I was returning and were shocked a stranger made CDs to give to them. ? We can spend so much time in survival mode at our jobs and never get a chance to touch the lives of others who are an alternate reflectional reality of ourselves. Karma/Dharma and LOVE. ??. Wow! Having a powerful reflective moment. Make your life, work, creations and most of all service count! We can overcome the suffering in this world be committing ourselves to serving others, animals, nature, mother earth and the Universal community. www.audiopharmacology.com

Live Santeria Invocation happening on the dance floor. DJing isn’t just playing music or pop songs to me. I’m a messenger here to inspire those through the healing arts of tone, free can see (frequency), Dance, hertz, energy and positive mantras (lyrics). Music moves people figuratively and literally. I don’t view it as entertainment but a means to implement positive brain entrainment.

My Ecstatic Dance Chicago DJ Experience more than exceeded my expectations. It took me back to my events I hosted in 2003/2004 called the Urbanicity Dance and Arts Studio but expounded on the mission and vibration via the people coming together to dance without the influence of alcohol, drugs, sex, smoking, eating or hidden intentions. It was/is all about the ecstatic dance floor experience.
Another element thats very spiritual about this event is that its held in a mediation center setting the vibrations of oneness and inner self mastery. On top of that the events are pure and for all ages to attend because of that. It’s intergenerational and has diverse cultures from all walks of life. Like the Urbanicity Dance and Arts Studio no pictures, videos or talking is allowed on the dance floor. The night was packed with such beautiful spirits and you have to come to experience the energy rather than it being broadcast via social media. I was allowed to take DJ booth video only and here are my personal confessions from a Ecstatic Dance Chicago Experience!

I had the pleasure of playing this years 14 Annual Silver Room Block Party at the Promontory in Hyde Park. Here are some video highlights from my set.
