What is Vantage Quest?
"Vantage Quest . . . is a doorway without
- - Philip N. Richins, M.Ed.
Vantage Quest is a personal transformation tool on CD designed to produce deep relaxation states.
The sound of Vantage Quest produces unique consciousness states through subtle energy brain wave entrainment.
Vantage Quest is a synthesis of scientific research, ancient tradition, and modern technology.
The reverie Vantage Quest induces enhances creativity and generates insights, reflection, growth, and healing.
Stanley Krippner, Ph.D. says of Vantage Quest:
"Over the millennia, sound has been one of the powerful tools used to alter consciousness, and to transform moods and feelings. Vantage Quest follows in this venerable tradition, utilizing cutting edge technologies to provide deep, intense experiences for its users that they can use for enhancing personal enjoyment, evoking mental imagery, identifying bodily energies, and intensifying sensations and perceptions. The number of effects are diverse and potentially beneficial. People who utilize Vantage Quest will find that it challenges their creative potential in a variety of ways."
Renowned psychologist and author, Dr. Krippner researches consciousness, parapsychology, and alternative healing. The author or co-author of more than five hundred books and journal articles, his most recent titles, Spiritual Dimensions of Healing, and Personal Mythology, are available at your local bookseller.
Vantage Quest's developer, Carlisle Bergquist, is a co-author with Dr. Krippner of The Magenta Phenomenon, an exploration of a Brazilian healer. The article appears in The Journal of Exceptional Human Experience, 1994. To find out more about these exceptional encounters in Brazil, read Carlisle's on-line essay Creativity, Healing, and Shamanism.
Sound has for millennia been a locus of enlightenment, a pathway to the deep reaches of our psyche. For twenty thousand years of recorded history, shamans have used sound to venture into other worlds on behalf of their cultures. They are the developers of the early science of consciousness. Before the advances in modern physics that now describe the tiniest subatomic particles as interference patterns of various sound frequencies - "nodes of resonance" - these many myths in some way implicated sound as causal in creation. Sound -- vibration -- grants us such passage because it is the core of our being.
Many religions describe sound in their creation stories, the exploration of consciousness, and healing rituals. The creation stories of the western religions of Judaism, Islam and Christianity all say that God spoke and all became manifest. The Chinese religion Taoism speaks of "the Great Tone of Nature." Hindu cosmology tells of Nada Brahma -- sound, the creator God. Similar ideas can be found in the beliefs of indigenous peoples around the globe.
Ancient esoteric traditions also include sound in their teachings. Sufism and the Kabballah both describe humankind as having a core of sound, or a "root frequency." The mystical writings of A. A. Bailey, H.P. Blavatsky, and Rudolf Steiner, along with those of the Rosicrucian Order all describe core frequencies that form the basis of human existence. Shamans have known these secrets for thousands of years and used sound to carry them on their travels into altered states.
Vantage Quest is not a spiritual or esoteric tradition. Thus, Vantage Quest espouses no specific doctrine but, like these traditions, it is based on a premise that we are in essence Resonant Beings. Resonance that provides a pathway to the higher creativity and healing found at our core. To learn more about the use of sound in various traditions read, Doorways In Consciousness: An Exploration of Resonant Being.
Recording is both a science and an art. The finest in modern recording technology and talent were used to develop and record Vantage Quest. Angel Balestier, owner of Group IV Recording and ALB Productions, has been engineering and producing hit records since his days with Jimi Hendrix all the way to the opening sequence of the 1996 Olympic Games. Steve Livingston is a music and sound editor for the film and television industry, and a multiple nominee for the prestigious Emmy and Golden Reel awards. Carlisle Bergquist is the former Vice President of Suitewinds Productions and a producer at the Silvery Moon Studios. Carlisle is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice along with researching and writing about the role of creativity in healing. Their combined expertise applied the brains of music to the music of the brain in developing Vantage Quest.
The sound you hear on Vantage Quest is literally hand-crafted and edited using both digital and analog equipment to create the Harmonic Matrix. No other psychoacoustic recordings or devices contain this unique auditory stimulation. Vantage Quest is presented on Brass Foil Compact Disks to better reproduce the complexity and intensity of its audio signals.
