Introduction Easy to understand, deep and profound, Phuong has completely made readers infatuated with his book Secret Power – it is about a type of power which could disseminate profoundly and form powerful thought, opinion or knowledge which in turn can be used to shape the attitude and influence the emotion of the crowd, thus directing the crowd’s behavior according to the will of the user. Phuong also shows us quite a few things about dark PR techniques (Dark Art) in business which are being used to manipulate and to mislead public opinion as well as to eliminate enemies, to help us identify and protect ourselves, thus enhancing our ability to control the society. How to apply the secret power to shape the attitude and to influence the emotion of the crowd will be presented in detail in this book along with many practical examples to help you have an easier time understanding and applying it. One notable thing about the Secret Power is that it contains power of the modern doctrine of PR - a very new approach of PR to the age-old business problems (sales, building and protecting company's reputation). The modern doctrine of PR is more comprehensive than the PR concepts in the past because it contains both value of professional knowledge and value of social contribution. Regarding the value of social contribution, the modern PR doctrine publicizes techniques which can help people perceive PR correctly and make it become more popular to the public. In terms of the value of professional knowledge, the modern PR doctrine shows us how to apply the power of 5 Supreme Arts to help enterprises achieve their goals as well as a sustainable development. As containing in it both the value of professional knowledge and the value of social contribution, this book is considered to be one of the remarkable efforts to bring the PR industry back to its roots and its original mission which is contributing to the building of a healthy information society and a transparent business environment, thus enhancing the society.

A complete introduction to using the sounds of the voice to promote healing • Explains the emotional meanings and healing attributes of human vocal expression, from vowels and consonants to natural sounds such as laughter or sighs • Includes easy-to-follow vocal and breathing exercises • Contains chants and mantras from cultures around the world As infants and children we use our vocalizations to express our needs and emotions. As we grow older these vocalizations become confined to language. The suppression of emotional sounds because they may be considered childish or undignified is quite commonplace in Western cultures. Yet when done with vigor, the sounds made by laughing, groaning, humming, keening, and sighing hold within them great power for healing. In The Healing Power of the Human Voice James D'Angelo introduces the concepts behind sound healing and provides simple, practical exercises for beginners. He explains in detail the meanings and healing attributes of the whole range of human vocal expression, from vowels and consonants to the natural sounds of laughter or sighs. He praises the power of singing and reveals the ways in which group singing can contribute to physical and mental health. He also presents authentic classical chants and mantras from cultures around the world and shows how we can combine various vocal sounds to form our own mantra to help clear chakra blockages. All of the sounds discussed, as well as the techniques for producing overtones, are placed in a ritualized context and are accompanied by simple movements to enhance tuning the body toward inner harmony, health, and peace.

He explores chronic sensory overload and how auditory dysfunction often results in difficulties with learning and social interactions. He offers innovative techniques designed to invigorate auditory skills and provide balanced sonic environments. In this revised and updated edition of The Power of Sound, Leeds includes current research, extensive resources, analysis of the maturing field of soundwork and a look at the effect of sound on animals.

An exploration of humanity’s age-old fascination with Sirens • Explains the Sirens’ half-human, half-animal bodies as a metaphor for the psychological challenge that their myth has always embodied • Fully illustrated in color with works by Rubens, Bosch, Munch, Magritte, and others Their celestial voices drove mast-lashed Ulysses nearly out of his mind with libidinous promises as they beckoned him ever-closer to paradise--or a rocky death. With womanly torsos and animal lower halves, usually birds or fish, Sirens have long been symbols of the lure of desire--the feminine, as seducer--beckoning men to mystery beyond their ken, or to disaster. This book is both a celebration of Sirens and an examination of the psychology of dichotomy--the diametrically opposed drives and inherent conflicts underlying this female archetype. Since antiquity, Sirens and their mermaid sisters have maintained an ongoing affair of the heart with humanity’s greatest writers and artists. Sirens play important roles in the classical writings of Homer and Euripides, as well as in the modern works of James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, W. B. Yeats, and many others. Matching these writings with vibrant work from such artists as Peter Paul Rubens, Hieronymous Bosch, Edvard Munch, and René Magritte, Meri Lao has created a feast for the eye. Exploring our 3,000-year-old relationship with Sirens, Lao reveals the secret of the power in their song: it is the sound of the subversive, luring us from the orderly conscious world down to the depth of the world of dreams, and the harder we try to ignore that singing, the more we desperately want to hear it.

How can an abstract sequence of sounds so intensely express emotional states? How does music elicit or arouse our emotions? What happens at the physiological and neural level when we listen to music? How do composers and performers practically manage the expressive powers of music? How have societies sought to harness the powers of music for social or therapeutic purposes? In the past ten years, research into the topic of music and emotion has flourished. In addition, the relationship between the two has become of interest to a broad range of disciplines in both the sciences and humanities. The Emotional Power of Music is a multidisciplinary volume exploring the relationship between music and emotion. Bringing together contributions from psychologists, neuroscientists, musicologists, musicians, and philosophers, the volume presents both theoretical perspectives and in-depth explorations of particular musical works, as well as first-hand reports from music performers and composers. In the first section of the book, the authors consider the expression of emotion within music, through both performance and composing. The second section explores how music can stimulate the emotions, considering the psychological and neurological mechanisms that underlie music listening. The third section explores how different societes have sought to manage and manipulate the power of music. The book is valuable for those in the fields of music psychology and music education, as well as philosophy and musicology

The Secret Power of Beauty

'The love of beauty involves a yearning which is not - and perhaps cannot be - fulfilled. For at the core of beauty is a conception of how we would like life to be and yet we know that life cannot be that way.' The notion of beauty is elusive- we love the things we find beautiful, and yet we are inarticulate when we try to communicate this love or describe its essence. There are people, works of art and places that are universally regarded as beautiful; but we also recognize the personal, individual character of our feel for beauty. In this lucid and lyrical exploration John Armstrong aims to deepen our response to beauty. And, he suggests, our capacity to discover and create beauty in everyday life is intimately connected to the pursuit of happiness.

Reverberating Song in Shakespeare and Milton

In this study, Erin Minear explores the fascination of Shakespeare and Milton with the ability of music–heard, imagined, or remembered–to infiltrate language. Such infected language reproduces not so much the formal or sonic properties of music as its effects. Shakespeare's and Milton's understanding of these effects was determined, she argues, by history and culture as well as individual sensibility. They portray music as uncanny and divine, expressive and opaque, promoting associative rather than logical thought processes and unearthing unexpected memories. The title reflects the multiple and overlapping meanings of reverberation in the study: the lingering and infectious nature of musical sound; the questionable status of audible, earthly music as an echo of celestial harmonies; and one writer's allusions to another. Minear argues that many of the qualities that seem to us characteristically 'Shakespearean' stem from Shakespeare's engagement with how music works-and that Milton was deeply influenced by this aspect of Shakespearean poetics. Analyzing Milton's account of Shakespeare's 'warbled notes,' she demonstrates that he saw Shakespeare as a peculiarly musical poet, deeply and obscurely moving his audience with language that has ceased to mean, but nonetheless lingers hauntingly in the mind. Obsessed with the relationship between words and music for reasons of his own, including his father's profession as a composer, Milton would adopt, adapt, and finally reject Shakespeare's form of musical poetics in his own quest to 'join the angel choir.' Offering a new way of looking at the work of two major authors, this study engages and challenges scholars of Shakespeare, Milton, and early modern culture.
