Tibetan Singing Bowl Workshop

A Unique Healing and Teaching Retreat

"There is nothing in the world that does not
speak to us. Everything and everybody
 reveals their own nature, character, and
secrets continuously. The more we open up
our inner sense, the more we can
understand the voice of everything." 

Hazrat Inayat Khan

Historical Tradition

According to Tibetan oral tradition, the existence of singing bowls dates back to the time of the historical Buddha Shakyamuni (560-480 BC).  Tibetans used the art of singing bowls (which dates back to the bronze age, approximately 3000 years ago), to bridge the material and non-material worlds.  With singing bowls, sound becomes an aide for the translation of spirit into matter and of matter into spirit.  Bringing in the sound and vibration from the singing bowls allows for connecting oneself to the central life force of the universe, providing a space to enter the three shamanic worlds, the upper, middle, and underworld.

Made from a variety of precious metals, the unique sound and look of each bowl is determined both by the combination of metals and craftsmanship of the maker.  From polished golden hues to matte black finishes, each bowl is as individual in appearance as it is in tone.

Today in the foothills of the Himalayan mountains of Bhutan, Nepal, India and Tibet, these bowls are still being used by the Shamans for healing.

How Bowls are Used

Singing bowls are a beautiful and powerful mystery. They produce the sound of AUM, which is the sound of energy becoming matter. They alter space, mind and time.  The sound and vibration of the bowls awakens cellular memory and heals the energy body.  Playing the blowls usually causes the ability to ground and center oneself.  The tones set up a harmonic resonance which allows a balancing left/right brain synchronization to occur.

The bowls can be used for:

relaxation                              prayer                               healing
meditation                             ceremony                          trance journeying                              balancing                          illness
concerts                                 cleansing                          transform

Singing bowls produce sounds that invoke deep states of relaxation, naturally assisting one in entering states of consciousness and meditation . . . the ultimate goal being healing and enlightenment.  In the end, each experience with the sound of the bowls is that of communication between oneself and the inner world that often opens us to the universe.  This leads to the Buddhist teaching of Voidness - that nothing can exist independently of anything else.

Workshop Overview

Vibrational medicine, also called sound therapy or sound healing, is a powerful tool.  Over the course of the workshops, we will guide you in understanding and experiencing how the tone and vibration of these bowls can assist in your personal healing, as well as the healing of others.   Through the use of experiential, hands-on healing exercises and lectures we will invite you to explore your inner healer using sound.

These workshops offer a unique and loving environment of support and encouragement, providing each participant the opportunity to explore, grow and witness one another.   In supporting this philosophy, it is helpful if each student has some awareness of the basic Chakra System and Auric Field.

Each class is unique in its own way.  The overall pace and depth of each workshop is set by the group's energy and vibration.  This class is an invitation to experiment with singing bowls; to see how you respond together, grow together and change.  Remembering that no two moments are ever the same and this is the only moment that matters right now.
