Over the past 5 years, thousands of people have decided to invite their first singing bowl into their life through our store.
A singing bowl can be deceptive; it should be so easy to make it sing perfectly the first time. Just like you're seeing in the videos online. Remember that although it is quite simple, it is still a hand-beaten musical instrument.
The process of learning to make your bowl sing beautifully is a practice.
