Everything about Tibetan Singing Bowls and sound therapy has been a series of synchronicities for me.
Several years ago, my husband and I were in Kathmandu, Nepal staying in the Tibetan area, Boudha, when one day my husband said with encouragement, “You should look into this”. He stood pointing at a poster for a course on Tibetan Singing Bowl Healing. I had actually picked up a flyer a day or so earlier and had been thinking about it and wondering if I could fit it into our schedule!
We made plans to check it out. When introduced to the teacher we were surprised that we had already met her a few days earlier in the street!
I asked about taking the course and she said that she had would call my guest house in the upcoming days and let me know if there were enough people wanting to take the course in the next few weeks.
Several days later she called to say that she would be offering the course. I rearranged my schedule and was able to take the course prior to our scheduled departure from Kathmandu.
This was the beginning of an incredible journey of learning and excitement with Tibetan singing bowls that continues to this day. In addition to offering treatments and workshops, I have developed training for others interested in learning sound healing with Tibetan Singing Bowls. I return to Nepal regularly to bask in my love of the culture, enhanced training and meditation retreats.
I have trained extensively in the use of planetary Tibetan singing bowls based on the work of Hans Cousto, a Swiss mathematician and musicologist, and the teachings of Renaissance physician, Paracelsus.
Cousto discovered the natural law of the "Cosmic Octave" as the link between different kinds of periodically occurring natural phenomena, such as the orbit of the planets, colors, rhythms and tones.
Paracelsus believed that health arose from the harmony between the microcosm (man) and the macrocosm (Nature). In his practice of medicine, Paracelsus used astronomy and astrology to interpret the ways in which the movements of the universe acted on the physical body.
I have also trained with Master Sound Healers, Shree Krishna Shahi and Santa Ratna Shakya, both third generation singing bowl healers and teachers, in Nepal. These Masters have been healing, teaching singing bowl workshops and performing for over 30 years. Together they have released eight albums of singing bowl music including, Clear light, The Path, Dhyana, Vision of Third Eye and Open Mind.
In addition, I have had the opportunity to train with Master Satya Brat, from Kolkata, India, and have a certificate in Integrated Clinical Healing with Tibetan Singing Bowls from the International Academy of Sound Healing.
