A Deepening with the Ancient Melodies of the Manipuris
July 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Robert’s Home: 12703 Lady Somerset Lane Fairfax, VA 22033
The Manipuri singing bowl is the most ancient shape and the most original, simplistic model of the ancient singing bowl. Known to be forged in fire as the first ever singing bowl in the historical record, these ancient masters were hand pounded out of the original, vertical flat disc models, which we now understand to be closest to contemporary Pan-Gongs.
The once vertical gong was then morphed into a horizontal and concave bowl shape, allowing the ”crashing” sounds of the gong to evolve into a reverberating, sustaining sound frequency–lasting several times longer than the previously experienced linear crescendo of a gong. This sustained frequency conditioned the space for listeners to enter what the ancient Tibetan masters referred to as ”The Void.”
This rare and ancient chromatic set of Manipuris will be present at this event for your enjoyment, featuring five even rarer “Void Manipuris” that will certainly condition the space for a deeper meditative journey.
This meditation is typically open to people who have been to our previous sound bath meditations, at least once, and are familiar with our orientation. Why? Because there will be no pre-talk, debriefing, and preparation for newbies at this meditation.
This exclusive meditation will maintain a most sacred and silent opportunity for attendees to go deeper into the frequencies offered.
