What is Sound Bath/Sining Bowl Meditation?
A Singing Bowl meditation is a distinctive type of sound practice that involves using restorative sounds and vibrations to bring about healing. Sound healing therapy uses different facets of music to improve physical and emotional well-being. According to some researchers, the vibrations of a singing bowl can induce favorable reactions in the body which may reduce stress, by "harmonizing" the cells, and "balancing the body's energy system." Singing bowls have been used in some Buddhist religious practices to accompany times of meditation. This method of sound healing, combined with meditation, is ancient and sacred in Tibet, where it first originated at, approximately, the start of the 12th century.

How does it work?
Sound helps shift our brainwave activity through entrainment. Entrainment synchronizes our oscillating brainwaves by supplying a stable frequency which the brainwaves can adjust to. By using rhythm and frequency, we can entrain our brainwaves, allowing us to decelerate our normal beta state (normal waking consciousness) to alpha (relaxed consciousness), and even possibly reaching the theta (meditative state) or delta (sleep) states of being.
