Tibetan bowls have been used for centuries for healing and meditation. The range of sounds create a pulsating tone, which can restore vibratory frequencies at the cellular level and throughout our nervous system. All matter is energy vibrating at different rates. By altering the rate of vibration absorbed, we can change the structure of matter and therefore create harmony in both the body and the mind. Tibetan bowls can deliver a 7 to 8 Hertz-per-second relaxation response, entraining the brain toward a Theta brain wave state, which induces meditative and peaceful states by decreasing the heart rate, blood pressure and muscle tension, thereby disrupting our stress response common to our modern world. All bowls used in this class are «fair trade» and hand-hammered in Nepal. You will be mostly lying down, so bring your favorite blanket/pillow/mat (although we have a few to share) and release all the stress that you've been carrying around. This class has a suggested minimum donation of $10 although no one is ever turned away for lack of funds. Additional donations are appreciated.
