Embracing Darkness

This is a dark soundscape, designed for meditation and a exploration of the subconscious. This sound generator serves as both a meditative tool and a therapeutic aid for anxiety.

Embracing the darkness may seem bold, but this approach is intentional and thoughtfully crafted. Being willing to face and accept your difficult emotions or situations, rather than just trying to feel better right away, can help you understand and manage your feelings better. I learned this from my own experience during a lengthy hospital stay.

If at any point the experience feels overwhelming, there's always the option to switch to a brighter, more uplifting soundscape, like A New Day.

This soundscape might sound a bit odd and might make you feel uneasy at first. But, it's designed to be a safe space for you to deal with your anxiety. It encourages you to acknowledge your uneasy feelings in an environment where you know nothing can harm you. By doing this, the hope is that you'll learn to be more at ease with your discomfort.

  Double down on the self-discovery by pairing this with "Dark Water", or "Contemplation Cave". Thanks for this masterpiece, Stéphane.

  Thank you for creating this site and sharing your journey with us! I love this one... Often the brightest light within each of us is the deepest and darkest corner of our being where no one can see. This soundscape captures that perfectly.

  This and "Time Still" work together VERY NICELY! Thank you VERY MUCH, Stephane--AS ALWAYS! :-)

  A better place, Stephane. Truly, a better place. Your contributions to the world deserve more attention.

  This helped me to find my inner self that has been hindering me from changing my own behaviors, and this will definitely help me with accessing that part of me to be able to heal better, faster, and more efficiently now that I know how to have a "conversation" with it. This is a good resource to help others heal from the dark parts of them that are holding them back. Great work Stephane.

  If I had a nickel for every time Stéphane made a generator that perfectly captures an abstract vibe that I'd been longing for I'd have two nickels. That's not a lot, but it's amazing that it happened twice :3

  I know how people like to bang on about liminal spaces, but this, to me, is a great sound for it. Waiting for what comes next with timing that is entirely out of my personal control, in surroundings that resolutely refuse to tell me how to feel about it (and thank goodness for that).

  This sounds good! And this is why I love dark ambient: It resets my mind in between listening to ordinary music. It's vagueness allows me to "halucinate" some interesting "realities " - not like a ready to use musicpiece (in the same way realistic and abstract paintings differ from each other), therefore never boring. It confirms a part of myself that feels alienated in this strange big world.

  Inspiring without being distracting... Studious solitude made sound. Perfect for thinking through difficult topics. Each slider is very peculiar, and applied in sparsity (like your presets) they really shine. Thank you for a very special soundscape, which just makes me want to take deep breaths and sink into greater understanding.


  This is DEEP! Amazing soundscape Dr. Pigeon! Keep up the good work <3
