I've lusted after those brassy, resonating Tibetan bowls for like...forEVer! And I got one (happy dance) and it sounds wonderful. I can tap it with the wooden mallet for a ringing good clear tone, or run the mallet around and around the edge for a low, haunting tone that seems as if it comes out of thin air and is drawn TO the bowl, not emitted from the bowl. Oo!
It's not a big one, just 5 inches, but that's quite comfortable. Whoa. It makes my sinuses and forehead vibrate when it really gets going. Now, this
is a great way to cleanse sacred space!
It's also supposedly attuned to clearing the chakras. What a way to start the day...or last thing at night.
Gee, you'd think I'd be too old for this much fun from yet another spooky toy. Nah!
Does anyone have any tips on this?
