Tibetan Sound Bowl Interactive Experience

facilitated by Geoffrey Torkington of The Elephant Bowl

Join us Sunday afternoon, Sunday Nov. 3 at 4pm with Tibetan Bowl musician Geoffrey Torkington in an unusually accessible and deeply calming interactive experience with the Tibetan Bowls. In addition to extended 30 minutes lying down experiences in which a large group of bowls of mixed sizes will be played, each person will be able to test out multiple bowls, learning basic striking techniques in order to produce multiple tones. From there the group will break into couples and all will have a chance to give and receive a sound experience from their partner. This two hour event is a perfect entrance or deepener into the world of Tibetan bowls and also a wondeful chance for you to take home a bowl or set from Geoffrey's collection. Bring your own present bowl if you would like to match it with a new cousin.
Geoffrey Torkington, is a Yogi, healer and the founder of The Elephant Bowl, a project which seeks to introduce the power of hand pounded singing bowls as supportive tool in healing and personal development. As a longtime student of Yoga, he has traveled and has spent years of his life internationally in Yoga and Buddhist communities, practicing, learning and teaching. Along his journey he also became a co-founder of Agama Yoga Mexico, one of the notable backpacker budget Yoga retreats and communities in Mexico. He has Yoga teaching certificates in Agama and Hridaya Yoga. He is also the author of a 150 page blueprint model for a Network of Yoga and Educational Communities. His plans for 2013 include an upcoming multi-city 6 week Tibetan Bowl event tour with sporadic trainings in the country of Mexico.

About the bowls:
Each bowl is hand selected and made by native Nepalese craftsman.
The multiple overtones of the singing bowl are well known for their health benefits. Sound Healing is an effective and proven modality that uses vibrational sound to help reduce stress, alter consciousness and create a deep sense of peace, well being and better health. In Geoffrey's events he generally makes a nice blend of offering extended sessions of deep relaxation (30 minutes) and giving others the chance to increase their skills with the bowls and then demonstrate those in a shared sound healing experience with the group or in pairs.

    WE all got a 30 min. healing session. I was blissed out! Then we experimented with how to make sounds, so we interacted with the bowls and with a partner. Then some volunteered to be healers, some receivers so we did healing for another. The bowls are amazing! Such great therapy!

    Dear Ladies, the New Moon is coming up. Please create an intention so that while we are being healed with the Tibetan Bowl vibrations you can envision your next 2 weeks till the full moon and see yourself attaining the goal that you set forth. Of course somethings may take longer to manifest but our intentions are powerful entities that attract forces unto themselves! I am sooo excited to see so many of you coming for this event! Thank you and I hope see and meet you soon!
