Tibetan Singing Bowls
Tibetan Singing Bowls are the ancient brain entrainment methodology for healing and meditation. You can use them for crystal cleansing, sound healing, and meditation purposes. They are a perfect tool for promoting peace, harmony, and balance in your home or sacral area. They can create a range of sounds to restore the normal vibratory frequencies of diseased and out-of-harmony parts of the body, mind, and soul. Each of our bowls has its own frequency and resonates with our 7 chakra energy centers. Sounds from Tibetan Singing Bowls entrain the brain to move into the Theta brain wave frequencies that induce deep meditative and peaceful states, clarity of mind, and intuition. The sound vibrations impact our nervous system, engaging our relaxation reflex and inhibiting the stress or pain response. Tibetan bowl, generally made from a bronze alloy containing copper, tin, zinc, iron, silver, gold, and nickel, is a type of standing bell played by striking or rubbing its rim with a wooden or leather-wrapped mallet. This excitation causes the sides and rim of the bowl to vibrate, producing a rich sound.

How to Play a Singing Bowl:
- Hold the base of the bowl in the palm of your hand or on your fingertips. Be careful not to touch the side of the bowl as to do so will affect the vibrations.
- Tilt the bowl towards you at a slight angle. This helps you to move your hand around the bowl more easily.
- Hold the mallet supplied with your bowl from the top with the fingertips pointing downwards. Ensure that each finger is touching the mallet. Have a firm, but not too tight, grip.
- To warm up the bowl ready for play, strike the mallet gently against the side.
- Keep your wrist straight. When playing your singing bowl, it is important that your wrist is kept straight at all times; let your arm do the work.
- Now, rotate the base of the mallet slowly around the rim of the bowl. The singing from the bowl will gradually become louder.
- Keep playing the bowl with even pressure and constant speed. If you play your bowl too fast you will hear some friction ('clinking') between the bowl and mallet which will be a sign that you need to slow down.
- When you have finished playing remove the mallet from the side of the bowl. If you have played long enough the bowl should continue to sing for a time.
