The Balance pathway of the Safe and Soud protocol can be used to extend and integrate the gains of the SSP and potentially act as a state stabilizer. SSP Balance was developed as a follow up to the SSP Core to offer an opportunity to return to music as a calming and grounding experience with a less strenuous neural workout. The music in SSP Balance uses the same playlists as SSP Core, but is treated to present the frequency envelope of human voice with a narrower and less dynamic modulation around this range. It should feel like less of an exercise program than SSP Core and more of a re-experiencing of the cues of safety you will remember from SSP Core.
There is no particular order necessary for listening to the music in SSP Balance as the filtration algorithm for each hour is the same. This means you can feel free to keep returning to the same hour or half-hour segment that appeals to you or your client or move freely in any order. You can listen ambiently via speakers or your computer or any type of headphone.
