|Resonance implies “being in harmony with” something. If you “resonate with” the thoughts or feelings of others, it means you are on the same page, and vibrating in a sympathetic manner. Resonance also implies cohesion, which means, that things are working together in a high level of “divine order” and intrinsic co-functionality.
This is how nature is foundationally designed, through resonance and cohesion of all its systems. The human mind has created systems which are “out of synch” with this natural resonance and cohesion, by allowing itself to experience feeling separated in awareness from the “other aspects of itself,” ie, all that is.
As we return to being able to live together in resonant harmony, creating cohesive ways of being that allow for the growth and nurturance and expression of all aspects of the whole, or the project, community or organization upon which we are focused at any given moment, we allow higher levels of genius and awareness to arise and become leveraged for the benefit of the whole. It is with this in mind that we have created ResonanceFest™.
1. The quality or condition of being resonant: words that had resonance throughout his life.
2. Richness or significance, especially in evoking an association or strong emotion: “It is home and family that give resonance . . . to life” (George Gilder). “Israel, gateway to Mecca, is of course a land of religious resonance and geopolitical significance” (James Wolcott).
3. Physics The increase in amplitude of oscillation of an electric or mechanical system exposed to a periodic force whose frequency is equal or very close to the natural undamped frequency of the system.
4. Physics A subatomic particle lasting too short a time to be observed directly. The existence of such particles is usually inferred from a peak in the energy distribution of its decay products.
5. Acoustics Intensification and prolongation of sound, especially of a musical tone, produced by sympathetic vibration.
6. Linguistics Intensification of vocal tones during articulation, as by the air cavities of the mouth and nasal passages.
7. Medicine The sound produced by diagnostic percussion of the normal chest.
8. Chemistry The property of a compound having simultaneously the characteristics of two or more structural forms that differ only in the distribution of electrons. Such compounds are highly stable and cannot be properly represented by a single structural formula.
