In this workshop, learn the science behind both Crystal Singing Bowls and Himalayan Singing Bowls. You will not only learn why they are healing tools, but will learn how to play them as well to use for yourself and others. Sample/Practice Healing techniques will be taught.Every organ and body part creates a natural resonant frequency in harmony with the rest of the body when it is healthy. Everything that moves vibrates; from the smallest molecule to the universe itself. Sound vibration is “heard’ through every cell in the body, helping us to come into resonance with our deepest nature. When the vibration of a part of the body is out of harmony, we have dis-ease. Once we have dis-ease, a different sound pattern is established in that affected part of the body. Sound, when projected into the dis-eased area, corrects and restores the harmonic patterns.
Singing Bowls can carry and transmit the universal life force energy of Reiki. When the life-force energy within a person is restricted, the vibrational frequencey/ tones are altered creating a different sound/note not within the body’s natural state. As Reiki is life force energy, when in combination with the singing bowls, it enhances and intensifies the healing process by restoring wholeness, correcting, deepening and amplifying the harmonic balance throughout the physical, mental and emotional whole self, creating a symphony of health and vibrancy.
In the words of the great Tibetan Master/Bodhisattva Gwalwa Karmapa, “the Singing Bowls of Tibet emit the ‘sound of the void,’ the sound of the universe manifesting. So Himalayan Singing Bowls are believed to vibrate at what is traditionally recognized as the frequency of perfection, otherwise known as the Sanskrit mantra “OM.” When Himalayan Singing Bowls entrain with our brainwaves to create a sympathetic response with the perfect vibration of “OM”, then the healing process has begun. Stress, distractions, illness and the challenges of every day life disconnect us from our core essence creating dis-ease spiritually, physically and mentally. The harmonic resonance of the bowls literally pull us back, gently nudging our consciousness back to our natural state of blissful tranquility and health, into a more natural universal rhythmic and energetic flow.
