Tibetan Singing Bowls
Singing Bowls are one of the ancient Tibetan meditation tools. The pure sounds produced when the rim is rubbed by the striker is said to put the brain into a meditative state. The vibrations of the singing bowls have the same wavelength found in the brainwaves that produce feelings of relaxation.
In addition to their traditional usage for meditation, Tibetan singing bowls are used for deep relaxation, stress reduction, holistic healing, Reiki, chakra balancing and World music. Many people find that the rich blend of harmonic overtones which the bowls produce have a direct affect upon their chakras. Playing the bowls usually causes an immediate centring effect. The tones set up a "frequency following response" that creates a balancing left/right brain synchronisation. Meditating on the subtle sounds of the Tibetan singing bowl tunes one in to the universal sound within and without.
