Himalayan Singing Bowls, also known as Tibetan or Nepali Singing Bowls, have a history lost in
the mists of time. Originally understood to have come from Buddhist monasteries in Tibet and
used as sacred vessels in monastic ceremonies, the bowls have sound qualities previously unheard
in the west. Each bowl is unique, whether hand beaten or carved and decorated. As the metal
content, size and weight vary, so too do the magical sounds emanating from the vessel.

When gently struck or stirred around the rim, the bowls will produce sound that enchants. Strike gently
with a mallet, either plain wood or fabric covered, different materials produce different sound qualities. As
you become familiar with the properties of your bowl, you will hear differences in sound depending on
pressure and speed of striking or stirring, and experience a unique and deeply relaxing sense of ‘one-ness’
with your bowl. In meditation, a single strike of the bowl will quieten the ‘monkey mind’, feel yourself being
drawn down into the sound, and experience the relaxation that accompanies the sound becoming silence.
A deeply relaxing and interactive workshop.
