    Great episode!
    John Coltrane is one of the most spiritually transcending musicians that I’ve ever personally experienced! I’ve found myself weeping and drifting so far into that spiritual essence while listening to Coltrane. I didn’t know the background of him looking for the ‘Sound of God’ though and it truly makes sense. Coltrane does with sounds what C.S. Lewis does with words, in that he directs fellow beggars to ‘where the bread is’.

    For me personally ‘quiet time’ is hardly quiet. I used to take a guitar and play music and pray. Lately I’ve tapped into using some binaural beats meditation tones with my smartphone and headphones. What’s cool about it is that singing while listening through those tones I experience a harmonic-like-resonance that feels very powerful. It’s just an interesting way to tap into creativity in worship.

    There are a lot of binaural tones at 432Hz that you can find online, Youtube is a great place to start. It’s a powerful tone to pray, meditate and worship in. Is that taking it too far? I personally don’t think so but I’m open to anyone’s thoughts.
