While these exquisite sound healing instruments are more accurately known as "Himalayan Singing Bowls" due to their origins, we have chosen to refer to them as "Tibetan Singing Bowls" on our website.

There are many "authorities" in sound healing community and some of them are misleading the subject by spreading unreliable teachings about the notes and chakras. I know that some of these teachers were misled themselves and they strongly believe that there is nothing wrong with the knowledge they teach. They have the best intentions, projecting so much love and care, but yet, if you choose to blindly follow the path they offer, will you discover the truth?
Unfortunately, there are also fake gurus and I will allow myself to say BE AWARE OF THE SPIRITUAL FRAUD!
A common misconception is that Himalayan singing bowls are made from a special "sacred seven metal" alloy.
This is a false myth that has been perpetuated over the internet. Many people believe the seven metal myths. However, there is no truth to it. Singing bowls were never made from seven metals. In testing hundreds of bowls, we have never found the mythical seven metals. We have found only bell metal bronze or the cheap brass alternative.Read more
If you think that Himalayan singing bowls (also known as Tibetan singing bowls) are taking over the niche of yoga and meditation practice – you are mistaken. It's amazing to observe how much attention the sound bowls get these days. A few years ago a dentist asked me to help finding him a good quality singing bowl for his office. One of my students is a practicing nurse and doula. She uses a few singing bowls to help her patients relax and overcome pain. Another student of mine is Theta healing practitioner, using singing bowls in every session with her clients. I also have students that lead sacred plant
For this exercise, you will need a singing bowl that has at least two noticeable overtones (in addition to the fundamental tone) and a mallet with a medium firmness to strike the singing bowl (choose the mallet that will bring the lowest tone of the bowl along with at least two higher-pitched tones). I recommend choosing a hand hammered Himalayan singing bowl (also called Tibetan singing bowl) of a medium or large size.
It's very common to see sound healing practitioners using three singing bowls set placed around the head area. Left, right and crown. This is called A HEADSET.
Does it have something to do with the Third Eye Chakra and the Crown Chakra? The answer is - maybe, but there is something else, that is more obvious than the speculative assumptions that it is somewhat good for chakras.
The sonic character of the healing bowl used in singing bowl meditation is a critical aspect to consider! Upon careful observation, you will discover that each singing bowl possesses its own unique energy. This energy can manifest in a multitude of ways, possibly relating to a particular mood, temperature, color, texture, aroma, season, situation, or even a specific scenario. Indeed, each meditation bowl offers its unique message and energy, contributing to the richness and diversity of the meditation experience.Read more
Though often referred to as Tibetan singing bowls, these metal-made vessels are more accurately named "Himalayan singing bowls" since they are found throughout various regions of the Himalayas. It's likely that the country of origin for Tibetan singing bowls is India.
Playing the singing bowl: A bowl can be played in two primary ways:
Striking singing bowl: You can use a mallet to strike the Tibetan bowl, much like you would strike a bell. When the bowl is stroke, it vibrates at various frequencies. This produces multiple overtones simultaneously. The fundamental frequency (the main note you hear) combined with these overtones gives the Tibetan singing bowl its unique, rich sound.
Rubbing singing bowl: By running the mallet around the rim of the bowl in a consistent and steady manner, you create friction. This friction causes the sides of the bowl to vibrate, which produces a continuous, resonant tone.
The vibrations produced by the singing bowls can promote relaxation, balance energy, and facilitate healing. The soothing sound and vibrations are said to reduce stress, and aid in meditation.
The resonance from singing bowls can influence brainwave frequencies, leading individuals into deeper states of relaxation or meditation.
The sound produced by a singing bowl depends on various factors including its size, thickness, the material it's made of, and the technique used to play it. Larger Tibetan singing bowls tend to produce deeper, longer-lasting tones, while smaller bowls produce higher-pitched tones.
The traditional alloy composition used for crafting Himalayan singing bowls is Bronze, which typically consists of approximately 80% copper and 20% tin. Modern singing bowls, on the other hand, are usually made of Brass, comprised of roughly 80% copper and 20% zinc. It's important to mention that, based on numerous metallurgical tests we've conducted on antique Tibetan singing bowls, there's no evidence to support the presence of the often-mentioned seven metals. We did, however, detect trace amounts of iron.
