Om singing bowl

At Resilience, the Om singing bowl is an optional instrument for sound healing. Its use is dependent on the energetic needs and preferences of each client.


Overview of Om and the Om Singing Bowl


Om, also referenced as Aum or Ohm is an ancient Sanskrit word considered by many Eastern religions as the primal sound, the original sound of the Universe from which all other sound emanates. The components and the design of an Om singing bowl are intended to recreate this sound helping us connect with our origin, our roots, thus grounding and relaxing us.

It is interesting to note that the unique brainwave pattern that occurs when we are in a state of meditation or of calm consciousness is consistent with the wave pattern produced when an Om singing bowl is played.

So it is not surprising then that when we become synchronized or “entrained” with the waves produced by the Om bowl - that is, when we experience the bowl's resonance both audibly and viscerally through the vibrations that travel through our skin and deep into our organs, we are gently ushered into a natural state of harmony, relaxation and balance.*

The Om singing bowl at Resilience is a heavy 7+ inch diameter bronze bowl. It was hand-hammered by Nepalese artisans and etched with a mantra. This special bowl came about 7,000 miles from Kathmandu to its home in Resilience's healing space.
