Level One Immersion in Singing Bowls
With Public Sound Bath
This public event acts as the introduction to the 20 hour Level One singing
bowl immersion in Himalayan singing bowls. In this two hour experience
with Himalyan singing bowls the participants will not only know the beauty
and profound effects of these harmonic instruments, but will have them
presented in the context of a ceremony to prepare the body-mind for a
more conscious lying meditation. The sound bath will be offered using a
mix of old and new bowls, some of which have rare shapes or sounds. Other
instruments will also play an important, but smaller role in the process.
This event is the opening part of a 20 hour weekend immersion experience
where newcomers can gain valuable experience and confidence in their
path with the bowls. The sound bath is open to everyone AND is included in
the cost of the workshop offered by Geoffrey Torkington who has taught-
introduced the bowls to over 1000 persons in various countries in small
October 20th, 6:30 to 8:30pm
Cost: $15.00 pre-registration is HIGHLY ENCOURAGED & PREFERRED
**The cost of this event is included in the tuition if you are attending the Level One Immersion.**
This 20 hour Himalayan Singing Bowl Immersion is a perfect opportunity
for absolute beginners as well as people already experienced in this
instrument but who would like to gain more skills, confidence and
understanding in their use.
The Himalayan bowls, often called Tibetan Singing bowls are accesible and
relatively easy to manage bronze percussion instruments. 100’s of people
have taken this course and are now using the bowls in their personal and
professional lives with wonderful results. For some it has become part of a
life path, blending healing, sound and consciousness.
This course is a blend of many elements: While there are some conceptual
jewels and lesser known facts about the bowls along with some brief
introductions to the science of sound, the focus is around the direct
experience of receiving sound via the bowls and working with them in a
practical manner. People who have resistance to over-the-top ideas and
concepts will enjoy the earthy and systematic unfolding that happens
through the weekend. Numerous applications of the usages of bowls are
offered. In addition to important tips and practice around choosing bowls,
tapping bowls, playing with repetitive patterns, rimming bowls, learning
how to listen to bowls, etc. subjects that will be explored include the use of a
bowl for self massage; using bowls to interact with the human energy field;
the use of bowls in space cleansing; bowls for back massage and deep
relaxation; bowls in water magnetizing and working with sets of bowls.
This training is intensive but because of the numerous practices, sound
baths and the therapeutic quality of being around the bowls, people leave
these events rested and with energy and enthusiasm. More times than not,
this course is a life-changer and opens the door sufficiently to take the next
steps in the field of sound therapy.
