Your purchases not only help support our work, but helps support locally gifted artists and artists from other parts of the country. We have been blessed to have the support of Karma and Jyamu Bhotia of Durango, CO who provide us with the beautiful inventory (some of which, Jyamu creates herself). In return, this helps support their foundation that provides support to villagers in northwest Nepal who are in need (daycare, school lunches, health education and much more).
Our antique singing bowls we sell, originally come from Nepal. In putting together harmonic sets for use in our harmonic therapy practice, we ended up with extra bowls over time. Since they were idly sitting on shelves, we have decided to sell them.
We start out below with some of the singing bowls we have and some details about each one. Click and enlarge a picture to get a better view. If you are interested, and want to hear what they sound like, come by the studio for a demonstration. If you are not local, let me know and I will gladly send you a sound clip.
In the next section are our “Other Goodies” that we have for sale. Keep coming back as we will be updating with all new inventory as it comes in.
