I was very fortunate to be gifted with a Tibetan Singing Bowl a few years ago, though I never fully appreciated it or its uses until some time later. I never played it properly, and to be honest, I didn’t really know how or even what to do with it. I must admit to having a little fear of it too. I felt a little silly trying to get it to make the wonderful sound I had heard from other people and their bowls; and I also felt a little self conscious doing it too. Having teenagers in the house can seriously interfere with your spiritual pursuits!
