Singing bowls have become a quintessential tool for our modern meditation practice. It is believed that the singing bowl tradition was brought from India to Tibet along with the Buddha’s teachings in the 8th century BCE. They have been used for thousands of years for meditation and healing purposes.

Comes with the wooden ringing stick and a ring cushion to rest your bowl on.
Hold the singing bowl on your fingertips of your left hand (if you are right handed, in your right if you are left handed).
Hold the ringing stick in your other hand, in about the middle on the wooden part, with the fingertips pointing downwards.
Gently tap the stick against the side of the bowl to "warm-up" the bell.
With an even pressure, rub the ringing stick clockwise around the outside edge of the rim of the bowl.Use a full arm movement (and not just a wrist movement), as if you were stirring a big bowl of cookie dough. Keep the ringing stick straight up and down.
It is the pressure you apply and the speed of the movement you make that creates the vibrations of the metal and allows the bowl to sing. The trick is to apply even pressure, but not too much. Experiment with this, and experiment with the speed. Build it up slowly, the bowl will sing louder as the vibrations grow.
After 5 minutes we figured out how we should be holding this bowl. It then began to sing. Beautiful
