Tibetan singing bowls are metal vessels from the Himalayas whose function is to emulate the sounds of nature through harmonic sounds. They are based on the Principle of Resonance: the more intense and harmonic vibrations infect the weak or unhealthy ones. Therefore, there are frequencies that can modify to other less suitable frequencies.

Through the resonance of the Tibetan singing bowls, brain waves can be modified, reaching mental states of deep wellbeing and relaxation, which contributes to reach unknown levels of consciousness and can even help in the healing of certain ailments of the body and mind.

Tibetan singing bowls are played with a wooden stick. The sound they produce is tremendously enveloping and can vary depending on the metal composition and characteristics of the bowl itself and how the stick is handled.

Tibetan bowls are handmade and are usually created from the alloy of seven metals in reference to the planets: gold (Sun), silver (Moon), mercury (Mercury), iron (Mars), lead (Saturn), tin (Jupiter) and copper (Venus). They usually weigh from about 150 grams to several kilos, and their size varies from 5 cm to 35 cm.

  • Through its enveloping sound, a feeling of physical and mental well-being is achieved.
  • They help to combat certain diseases.
  • They enhance creativity.
  • They improve concentration.

Tibetan singing bowls are used in meditation but are also used in ceremonial rites, astral travel, consciousness awakening, chakra balancing and as an aid in the healing process of physical, mental and emotional illnesses.
