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.

*A feature of the Singing Bowl its skillfully applied Japanese lacquer
