This Tibetan singing bowl is played by the friction of rubbing rubber mallet around the rim of the bowl to emphasize the harmonic overtones and a continuous ‘singing’ sound. This bowl is in the key of E, which is traditionally associated with the Third Chakra, or the Solar Plexus Chakra. The Third Chakra is the seat of the essence of reception, unification and centering, aspects of the essential self that are deeply empowered by your ability to choose.
Tibetan Singing Bowls have been used for centuries for healing and meditation purposes. They create a range of sounds to restore the normal vibratory frequencies of diseased and out-of-harmony parts of the body, mind and soul.
