Sounding Bowls open hearts, connecting you with your creativity, the source of your Being
There is something about a Sounding Bowl, it’s physical beauty, the extraordinary harmonic resonance of its sound, the touch and feel of it. Sounding Bowls touch people like nothing else, opening hearts and initiating healing in places we had forgotten was possible.
I have used it at work with 4 patients so far and have noticed in my dementia work that the more severely unwell the person is, the more profound the response.
This is the healing power of the bowl; it manages to bring together disparate and dissonant, disintegrated parts and bind them into a satisfying whole. This experience for anyone who feels any element of disharmony, disease or disenchantment, is restoring and relieving.
My patients in forensic psychiatry have consistently been moved by the sounding bowl; it compels people to be creative.
Recording the Wind in the Branches album with Tobias was a balanced meeting of two beautiful acoustic instruments, the perfect arc of musical phrase and artistic collaboration. The result is transcendental acoustic, a timeless record of when English timber and Japanese bamboo met and the wind shook the branches.
After the Sound Bath I felt as though every cell in my body was affected, fed, sort of softened and more. Yes, My cells felt re-hydrated with beauty.
