Singing bowls have been es­sen­tial to spir­i­tual prac­tices such as yoga and med­i­ta­tion for decades, but their appeal goes be­yond the holis­tic. Schools, hos­pi­tals and ther­apy rooms are just some of the set­tings that have re­cently em­braced singing bowls, par­tic­u­larly the crys­tal va­ri­ety. Crys­tal Singing Bowls was the first to in­tro­duce Us-based com­pany Crys­tal Tones’ quartz bowls to the UK. Here’s how they work…

BEAU­TI­FUL BOWLS

The crys­tal bowls in the com­pany’s eclec­tic col­lec­tion are made from pure crushed quartz, heated to about 4,000 de­grees in a cen­trifu­gal mould, while a blend of gem­stones, min­er­als and met­als is added to the alchemy bowls dur­ing the fir­ing process. In both cases, the re­sult is a beau­ti­ful in­stru­ment that looks as good as it sounds. There are sev­eral colours and fin­ishes to choose from, in­clud­ing calm­ing clear rose quartz and pow­er­ful solid plat­inum.

SOOTH­ING SOUNDS

A bowl’s sound varies de­pend­ing on its size. In many cul­tures, sound is be­lieved to have heal­ing prop­er­ties, and the ther­a­peu­tic value of mu­sic has been ex­ten­sively re­searched. Crys­tal singing bowls are in­formed by th­ese no­tions, and can have a pos­i­tive ef­fect on your men­tal well­be­ing, whether it’s through ac­ti­vat­ing your spir­i­tual cen­tres or sim­ply pro­vid­ing a new av­enue for cre­ativ­ity.

FIND YOUR BEAT

Whether you’re new to singing bowls or are a sea­soned prac­ti­tioner, Crys­tal Singing Bowls can help you find your sound alchemy groove. Based in the mys­ti­cal ham­let of Lewes in East Sus­sex, the Crys­tal Singing Bowls hub is both a shop and an art gallery, and can be viewed through a Skype/ Zoom tour if you can’t visit in per­son. The founder Genevra Jolie also of­fers a range of ser­vices be­yond help­ing you choose the per­fect bowl, in­clud­ing sound bath fa­cil­i­ta­tion and sound alchemy train­ing.
