The Himalayan Singing Bowls are crafted from 7 metals that make a musical ‘singing’ sound when played with a mallet.  In addition to a primary tone, singing bowls produce a complex series of subtle overtones that create a uniquely soothing sound. The art of creating Tibetan singing bowls has been handed down from generation to generation within family clans. Sandra’s bowls are made by a family clan whose work can be traced back to the time of the Buddha.  Sandra trained several years in the Shuniya tradition which honors the ancient foundation of sound healing created by Master Tibetan and Nepalese practitioners.Please arrive promptly and bring your own yoga mat.  Sandra will be doing a short presentation about the history, science and tradition of this healing practice.  You will be in a resting position, laying down or sitting, for approximately 60 minutes to allow for a deep level of relaxation.  At the end, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and share your experiences with the practitioner.
