George Bien's hypnosis graduate Lennie (above), was casually sitting on one of those large exercise balls, she slipped back and hit the top of her spinal column in such a way (one shot in a million) that her head was literally disconnected from her spinal cord. If she had moved a fraction of an inch in any direction, her head would have literally disconnected completely!

2. Improvisation on "Someday My Prince Will Come", the beautiful song from the Disney movie, "Snow White".
In this 1990 excerpt, George is performing with the York College Jazz Ensemble.

George Bien Master Guitarist
"It is indispensable. Without it, life would have little passion. It has the power to make us feel happy or sad, enthusiastic or apathetic, and can literally raise or lower our vibrational energy. It can make plants grow and flourish or sicken and kill them. What be this mysterious essence that has such power over life? Music! It is music!" -George Bien

The music induces altered states of consciousness, with primal as well as modern sounds creating states of excitation (trance-inducing dancing), meditative states (chanting and humming), and spiritual awakening (consciousness raising through vibration).

A blend of New Age, Jazz, Modern, African & Native American Rhythms, and East Indian Influences.
