Singing Bowls Australia
Singing bowls are a type of bell that vibrates and produces a rich, deep tone when played. Buddhist monks have long used Tibetan singing bowls in meditation practice. Research has found that using singing bowls for relaxation can significantly reduce blood pressure and heart rate.
Singing bowls can be used for meditation simply by tapping them with the striker, and concentrating on the pulses of sound as they become quieter and quieter, until you can no longer hear anything. This exercise is then repeated for as long as you wish, and it is an excellent way to bring the mind into focus.
Another mindfulness exercise involves paying attention to the activity of running the striker around the rim, the sound this produces, and the feel of the bowl in your hand.
