Brainwave entrainment, the practice of entraining one's brainwaves to a desired frequency
Entrainment (biomusicology), the synchronization of organisms to an external rhythm
Entrainment (chronobiology), the alignment of a circadian system's period and phase to the period and phase of an external rhythm

From me:

Entrainment is what I teach! The entrainment of the mind and the body and the universe.

I don't quite get it. Do I want air bubbles in my brain? Is this like a state of effervecance? Did I spell effervecance right?

BTW...I've been breathing. This one thing, has helped me so profoundly! Being conscious of my breathing...minimizes anxiety...a lot! Thank you Eva:)

Hey Khamisa,
I'm imagining that they put air bubbles in the concrete so it isn't too dense. In our minds, the same thing, making space, lovely space. Yoga can create space where we didn't know we had it, or breathing, like you wrote about, gives lots and lots of space. And where there is space it seems there is entrainment.
I am so happy you are breathing! :)
