The first time that I heard a Tibetan Singing Bowl, the sound enveloped me. The undertones gradually changed into undulating overtones.  I began to want to know more about the Tibetan/ Himalayan singing bowls, so I found Jodie Roberts, a Shaman and sound healer, and started studying with her. I acquired bowls of my own and began learning how to play.  Eventually I began studying with Suren Shestha a Tibetan sound healer from Boulder, CO, using  techniques that were commonly used hundreds of years ago. After some time with Suren I decided to continue studying, practicing and going to trainings and workshops in England and Nebraska. I like to say that I am always a student learning more all the time.

I truly cannot express enough how healing the sounds of these instruments are.  Because of the power of these healing tools, I use sound in all my classes and do private sessions at my home, incorporating gongs, chimes, drums, conch horns, rattlers and flutes in sound concerts.

There are so many benefits of Tibetan Singing Bowls:

  • Reduce stress and anxiety significantly

  • Lower anger and blood pressure

  • Improve circulation and increases blood flow

  • Deep relaxation and pain relief

  • Chakra balancing

  • Increase mental and emotional clarity

  • Promote stillness, happiness and well being. Stimulate the immune system.

  • Aid the immune system and fibromyalgia and psoriasis in individuals that meditate


You can experience the healing sounds of the singing bowls with me at Yoga Yoga in my upcoming Yoga Plus event Sound Therapy and Meditation Concert or learn how to play the Himalayan Bowls yourself with me in my Himalayan Chakra Singing Bowl Therapy & Techniques series!

Isn't it amazing how people remember the first time they heard a singing bowl? I remember too and it was in 1990. The benefits you mention show how great singing bowls are for general wellness, mindfulness but also for serious obstacles like PTSD. I also hear from a lot of parents who use them to help kids fall to sleep. I wrote about this in The Singing Bowl Book. I have a lot of free info, sound clips and videos at http://www.himalayanbowls.com

<a href="http://woomcenter.com">Sound therapy</a> was one of the best things I've ever experienced! Through the regular use of sound combined with intention we may begin to vibrate faster at a cellular or molecular level. This what is meant by "raise your frequency". The higher rate of vibration creates larger spaces between the cells, making us less dense, and preventing negative or intrusive energies from sticking to us easily.

The first time when I felt the vibration of Singing Bowls, I had no idea what was it exactly. Then the person told me about it, its uses and history. I was already excited to buy one so I bought it; my first singing bowls. I am still a learner but I know about singing bowls quite a little. I have them in my collections too.

Thank you for your post.
