This past week, I had the privilege of being one of 10 students taking the 6 day vibrational sound association certification course in Columbus Ohio.
We have now hit the half way mark.
It’s been a real blast! 10 students, over 350 assorted singing bowls plus assorted gongs, chakra drums & other sound toys. And mallets and strikers of all shapes & sizes.
There were the standard bowls that you would expect to find plus new innovative ideas like the halo – a bowl with a hole in the bottom. It has many applications- place a knee or any sore joint through the hole and then when the bowl is struck, the vibrations from the bowl can penetrate the joint 360°.
We handled a wide variety of bowls to learn about the different kinds of bowls-cast, hammered and ancient. As well, we had lots of hands on experience with different metals so as to understand when and why to use the different types -aluminum, bronze, brass or another.
Before learning any of the treatment techniques, we had to immerse ourselves in the understanding of the bowls even further. Using various different strikers plus balloons and water, we visualized the way each bowl and mallet created vibrational waves and how the waves distributed themselves through air, bodies, tables and clothing.
Practicing the techniques on each other has just begun and the common descriptive word is W-O-W!!
Sessions are fabulous stress busters, done fully clothed, run 50 minutes, cost $70.
If you would like the WOW experience and live in the Columbus area or will be visiting the Columbus, do contact me Connie and we’ll set up something convenient.
