Quick synopsis of brainwave entrainment

Welcome to the world of Binaural Beats!
The theory behind binaural beats is that if you apply slightly different frequency sine waves to each ear, a beating affect is created in the brain itself, due to the brain's internal wiring. If, in the presence of these tones, you relax and let your mind go, your mind will naturally synchronize with the beat frequency. In this way it is possible to tune the frequency of your brain waves to particular frequencies that you have selected. Using of the four bands: Delta: deep sleep, Theta: dreaming and intuitive stuff, Alpha: awake, focused internally, and Beta: awake, focused on your external environment and problem solving, you can produce a vast range of effects and results.
It is also possible to produce mixtures of brain waves of different frequencies by mixing binaural tones. With practice and experimentation, it is reportedly possible to achieve rather unusual states, such as out-of-body experiences, astral traveling and more. See the books by Ken Eagle Feather, and the Monroe Institute site for more details. The Monroe Institute has been researching brainwave science for over 40 years.
Centerpointe has also done a great deal of research into binaural beats and brainwave science. Their focus is more on  overall well-being improvements and holistic functioning rather than individuals reaching unusual states.  I recommend reading some of the articles on the Centerpointe site (look under "Site Map", for example, their Special Report: "How The Holosync Technology Works" and their FAQ).
I feel that I have benefitted immensely from using these techniques over the last year. My personal benefits range from simply getting my head clear in confusing moments, to the energy boosts that come at times, to more general emotional clearing, I am less quick to grow angry, I am much more calm and I experience very intense, sometimes lucid, dreams.
