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.

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.

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.
