’Craft Your Own Singing-Bowl’ workshop ;
The workshop will be facilitated by the team from Resounding Earth: Gabriella and Heather,
Venue: Karuna Flame – Holistic Health Retreat Centre, Boyle, Co. Sligo, Ireland (directions …here)
During this workshop, you will have a chance not only to learn different styles of playing singing bowls, but actually craft your own bowl with your own hands. You will be assisted in ‘forging your healing instrument into being’. Imagine how great that would feel! Discover your own hidden talents and inner potential, find the artist and healer within. Know that you can accomplish anything, when you put your heart into it. On the end, the satisfaction will be great and you will leave not only with great memories and a new skills, but also with your own beautiful and ‘priceless’ bowl.
Working with brass, over the three days you will scribe and cut the metal, work closely with the fire and all of the elements to sink and shape a finely crafted sounding vessel, an instrument that will outlast many generations to come. Instruction in the use of the tools and one to one support will be available throughout the workshop.
You will be guided not only in the physical, but also in the metaphysical implications of making a singing bowl. Modern science has come full circle to rediscover the wisdom of the ages – all matter is in essence, pure vibration, and that intention colours form. Throughout the workshop we will co-create and hold a focused space in order to bring forth your instrument. This act of bringing consciousness to how we perceive and experience sound, and our developing sensitivity to resonance, will underpin all that we do.
Although the process of Crafting a Singing Bowl is essentially a solo task, the group engagement and atmosphere supports the work at many levels.
There are no pre-requisites. Contact us if in any doubt about skill set or fitness.
The workshop is open to all ages from 14 and up.
Gabriella and Heather will travel from England to our place to offer you a unique opportunity to craft your own singing bowl, using ancient traditional methods. They both are very experienced in this work and facilitate such workshops for many years now.
Kris: “I know Gabriella for many years now. I know her as a wonderful singer and cello player and her musical talent and sensitivity to sound vibrations is reflected in the skill of making Singing Bowls. I feel many people will appreciate what is to be offered by her and Heather”
Tradition of making and using singing bowls for healing and spiritual awareness has been practiced for at least 3000 years in Tibet, China and Japan (see more info in Wikipedia)
Now it is a time that this skill will come to Emerald Isle of Eire. Summer of 2014 will see the first workshops of this kind in Ireland. Be among the first group who will anchor this energy in the Isle.
On the end of the process of forging the bowl, you will take part in a sacred sound ceremony to bless your new instrument. This healing instrument, of course, will be the only of a kind in the whole world, because you have made it yourself and infused it with your own intent and essence.
The space here at Karuna Flame is very suitable for this work, with beautiful corner for the forge, nature all around, birds singing all day long and the presence of the strong and clear energy of the land and great space acoustics. Here you can easily tap into universal sound current, becoming one with the process of allowing the work to be the voice of the soul.
