I was just re-reading a wonderful piece on writing on cymatics – it’s called a “Commentary on Cymatics” by John Beaulieu, N.D.

2. Cymatics For Your Left Brain:
Go read Dr. John Beaulieu’s excellent introduction to Hans Jenny’s “Cymatics” book here. It’s a great cymatics read, and will give you a good, solid introduction to the ideas, hopes and principles underlying cymatics. To get you started, here’s an excerpt:

A fellow therapist placed a copy of Cymatics, Vol. I on my desk. I remember the joy of looking at the cymatic sound patterns, and the wonderful sense of “Yes!” that rippled through my being. Each picture was worth at least a thousand words and I felt as though I were reading volumes in just a few minutes...Source
