How to Use a Singing Bowl

What is a Singing Bowl Used For?

  • To make you feel better
  • As an aid in meditation, yoga or a spiritual practice
  • As an aid in teaching
  • For healing practices
  • As a ceremonial object, an altar piece
  • For music and performances, even in orchestras
  • To soothe upset children and babies
  • Getting a classroom full of kids to come to order
  • As a conversation piece that speaks for itself
  • To remind you of something you might have forgotten

How to Use a Singing Bowl

To create sound with a singing bowl, gently press the accompanying mallet in a circular motion against the bowl’s outside edge or rim. When you start to hear a bright, clear tone, you can slow down the motion. Use your full arm to make the motion, rather than just rotating your wrist.

You can also make the same circular motion against the outside belly of the bowl. Additionally, you can gently strike the bowl before beginning the circular motion.

Concentrating on the bowl, especially the pulses of sound as they become quieter and quieter, is an excellent way to bring the mind into focus. The point where you no longer perceive the sound is your point of release from the external. My suggestion is a soft playing surface and a mallet that fits the bowl.
