Taoist Six Healing Sounds

Further to the article on the meditation of the inner smile, we can extend the practice to include the healing sounds.  This ancient practice helps expel negative emotions from the organs, cleanse the organs and transforms them into positive emotions.  This can be a stand alone meditation or done at the same time as the inner smile.
