An introduction to ancient and modern understanding of the power of audible vibrations (sound) for calming and centering the mind, and for clearing physical space. Participants will experience the sounds of a number of top quality Himalayan singing bowls. I have been collected and playing Himalayan singing bowls for decades and will be demonstrating how these ancient instruments, both individually and in combinations, can induce deep states of meditation. There will be some historical background as well as discussion of a few ways of using bowls to clear space.
