Program

If you accept that sound is vibration and you know that vibration touches every part of your physical being, then you understand that sound is heard not only through the ears but through every cell in your body.

One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms people on the emotional and spiritual planes. Sound can readdress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder. This is the amazing effect of Singing Bowl Advance Course

Trinity of Nepalese spiritual sound objects used for healing (Singing Bowls, Ganta, and Tingshas):

  • The bowls emit a quieting, entrenching energy
  • The Ganta (bell) motivates and unifies influence and the Tingshas stimulate energy fields
  • The ancient bowls actually come from various Himalayan regions including Nepal, Bharat, and Bhutan and are made from a consecrated seven metal alloy. Prayers and mantras were chanted to them during their creation so they carry that sacred energy

What are Nepalese Singing Bowls used for? Why Singing Bowl Advance Course

Used within meditations and physical healing, the bowls’ characteristic blend of harmonic resonances is used as a vibration tool to induce stress reduction, chakra balancing energy synchronization, and spontaneous healing.

They effectively alter consciousness into a peaceful and expansive meditative state. Participants report a fundamental shift in their view of phenomenon space, accentuated clarity of mind and body, enhanced creativity, and a sense of peace and well-being.

On a biological level, these instruments affect a great deal of physical change, but Tibetan bowl healing has far-reaching implications that occur on emotional, spiritual, and physical levels.
