The way that is right for you. Seriously. You can listen by yourself, with a partner or with a group. You can listen in your quiet meditation room or on bench waiting for the bus. All we ask is that you power on both speakers and be sure you’re hearing both speakers produce the New Origin Waveform tones.
N.O.W. is an asynchronous, dual-mono, auditory experience. Each N.O.W. speaker produces a completely new tone sequence each time it is turned on, and this creates an near-infinite variety of tone sequences when you use N.O.W. as intended—with both speakers playing at the same time. We call this experience a New N.O.W. Moment®.
If you’re indoors, just press and release the power button. There will be a 3 second gap before the tones start. This is a good time to take a deep centering breath. The initial power on volume level is set to be ideal for quiet indoor rooms. N.O.W. is a “lean in/listen up” experience. It is like having a good, intimate conversation with a friend who speaks quietly.
If you’re outdoors, or if you’re listening with a group, you may want to press and release “Power” then press and release “VOL” once or twice. A third press of “VOL” brings the volume back to the initial power on level.
Just listen. That’s it. Just have the intention to listen attentively. If thoughts enter your mind you can either “blink them away” or simply note them, and then return your attention to listening. We know this—it simply is not possible to be listening attentively AND be thinking at the same time. Impossible. Try it for yourself. Whenever you bring intentional attention to listening your thinking stops and you become aware of being aware. You become aware of your essential self—consciousness.
