Crystal Singing Bowl Healing

Crystal Singing Bowl

Crystal Singing Bowl

Crystal Bowl Sound Healing is based on the Tibetan belief that everything in the world is made of energy. Our bodies contain energy in the form of vibrating atoms. These vibrations can be disrupted by injury, disease, poor diet and other nasty things. Sounds made by a crystal bowl restore natural healthy vibrations. Different sized bowls are intended to vibrate at frequencies appropriate to each of the seven chakras. This group meets at a time observed around the world simultaneously. Music is created by rubbing the bowl with a rubber mallet. The leader of the group also played the flute. I captured their ceremony on an afternoon in Menil Park, just a few yards away from the famous Rothko Chapel. The temperature was around 90F/32C, but it was comfortable in the shade with a light breeze blowing. My headache cleared as the music began.

        • Photography is not allowed inside Rothko. I may have some from the exterior in my archives. It does not take long to drive over there…

      • Oh I wasn’t looking for it to do anything, just curious to see and hear it – turns out to sound a bit like Tibetan Buddhist chants and gongs.

  18. I was introduced to crystal bowls during college. One of my professors used to take us outside for short meditation sessions before class. This was during the summer and it was wonderful. I still use the breathing exercises she taught me when I’m feeling anxious.

    • Controlled breathing is fundamental in Yoga, I am told. I can tell you that it reduces air consumption under water. Of course, you can always hold Bailey when things get tough.
