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.

There will be no cell phones allowed in this room. You might want to leave them in your car, please.
 
Only whispers will be heard in the reception area and absolute silence maintained in the sacred space.
 
The meditation will be open-ended on the back end, but should not exceed 1 hour-and-a-half, and leaving early from this meditation will be discouraged in order to sustain the sacred silence.
 
For those of you who choose to lay down, to maintain the sacred quiet space, we encourage only quiet rubber yoga mats and soft blankets.
 
This will also be a simple and pure offering, featuring fewer bowls and no elaborate crystal grids. This minimalistic offering will allow each individual master bowl to be heard in its entirety and felt with more intimacy.
 
There will be no framework or theme for this meditation, as it will be conducted intuitively in-the-moment.
 
This silent contemplation will allow for more advanced realization, and a deepening of our intentions to be more expansive in our experience with the frequencies provided.
 
So, whether you’re looking for the next expansion in your meditative experience, or to just add a second opportunity per month to be with the bowls, this will be your chance to enhance.
