We will be offering a nighttime version of one of our popular lunchtime programs, “Meditation with Japanese Singing Bowl”! Experience a sound bath in the quiet space of our ongoing “Manga, Hokusai Manga” exhibition after viewing hours.
The singing bowl used for this program harmoniously combines the healing qualities of the Tibetan singing bowl and its Japanese traditional singing bowl. Relax and feel your stress dissipate into thin air as the sounds of the singing bowl lead you into a meditative state. There is no charge but reservation is required.
What is Singing Bowl?
The singing bowl used in this program is a healing musical instrument that Japanese craftsmen designed with the finest of details. Tibetan meditation bowl (a type of Buddhist instrument) has rich harmonic overtones, Japanese traditional singing bowl (also a type of Buddhist instrument) has a beautiful single tone and long sustain. The singing bowl used in this meditation program is a wonderful healing instrument incorporating both the Tibetan and Japanese qualities. Harmonious waves penetrate quickly and deeply, while harmonic overtones delicately realign the body.
