How do you use a singing bowl in group meditation? What are its effects and benefits?
You can use singing bowls in a group meditation by listening or playing the bowl. Whether it’s a group of friends, family, or strangers, singing bowls change brainwave states to get into a meditative state quickly.
Read on to discover the meaning of group meditation and how to tap into the powers of singing bowls.
Different people describe meditation differently. For some, meditation channels positivity; for others, it may be to calm the nerves, concentrate, or simply for a mindful time.
Meditation is a focusing technique with breathwork that’s relaxing, healing, and relieving.
Meditation works even better in a group because it’s more motivating than doing it on your own.
Frankly, it’s not just meditation. Everything is hard on your own, from yoga to soaking the feet daily. But in a group, you commit more.
Joining a group that meets up or works out regularly is a good way to cultivate discipline and order in your life.
If you can find a group that meditates together, that’s even better. Moreover, meditation connects us to everything in the universe. So, you ultimately connect with everything while meditating, whether in a group or not.
Whether you have a badminton club or a book club, singing bowls can you meditate together. Such a session is great for connecting a group of friends or family too.
So, group meditation is possible with any group.
Here are some ways to use singing bowls for group meditation purposes:
Christian prayer balls are circular or rectangular wooden bowls, unlike singing bowls. But that doesn’t mean you can’t use singing bowls for praying.
As Tibetan bowls help you concentrate and focus, praying to your God (no matter which) with the bowl will strengthen your prayer.
Singing bowls also help you charge your prayer with more dedication, commitment, and passion by opening different chakra centers in the body.
Meditation is one of the best uses of singing bowls because of the effect of their healing sounds on our brains. It makes the mind work twice as hard.
You can set goals as a group while meditating with singing bowls to charge your intentions even more. It could be something as simple as getting rid of stress or huge like accelerating the healing of a disease.
To select intentions randomly, add chits to a bowl and pick one intention per session. You can read more about how to meditate by singing bowls or share this postwith your group.

As a result, your sound fuses with the sound of the bowl.
Our sounds are powerful for communicating with the universe apart from other beings. That’s why positive affirmations, mantras, chants, and spells work so well.
If you’re looking for strength, chanting mantras from your religion or others can help you find it. Do you know the ouija board communicates with spirits by synchronizing the participants’ heartbeats with sound?
Singing bowls are powerful means to empower your mantras and chants to set them as an intention. It adds spiritual strength to your voice to manifest intentions.
One of the merits of being part of a group meditation gathering is improving your listening capabilities. When you play the singing bowl in a meditation group, it’s best to listen to others playing the bowl for group meditation silently.
This way, you connect to each person in the group via the sound they play. It’s a strong bond to explore more about meditation in yourself and others in your company.
Regularly listening to others play singing bowls will connect you to them on a universal level. Seers and shamans say doing group rituals like this with communities to unlock dormant abilities.
A group meditation activity that’s fun and interesting, the five-senses experience aims to broaden your mind and perception.
In this activity, you sit as a group and focus on your senses with meditation. Each member lists five things they can see, feel, hear, touch, and smell. It’s an activity to increase mindfulness.
When you do the 5-senses-exercise after a singing bowl session, the ringing sounds of your thoughts become strong, clear, and positively charged.
Try it before and after using a singing bowl and see the difference in group power verses on your own!
You can also play a singing bowl with specific members of the group. But this works if you have a closely-knit group. Playing multiple singing bowls without guidance ends up in cacophony with strangers.
Members of your group can play the Tibetan bowl in turns while others meditate with shut eyes or create an order for striking, rimming, or doing the Wah Wah technique.
This method will help you connect and explore matters of the mind together. It also enhances the energies of the members of the group.
Group meditation aims to unlock higher steps of meditation by sharing the energies of others with your own. It’s a powerful way to discover your subconscious mind and spirit. But it’s not easy.
That’s where singing bowls can help you quickly shift your brainwave states to alpha and theta states. Singing bowls also relax, cleanse, charge, and empower you by cleansing chakras, which doubles in group meditation.
You can sit together as a group while someone plays the singing bowl or several people do to connect deeply with one another too. It’s a great technique to make more out of family gatherings or friendly hangouts.

When you’re starting with singing bowls, it’s good to know how they work. The Tibetan singing bowl is an acoustic instrument played with a mallet by striking, rimming, or mixing both.
Historically, a singing bowl was made from seven noble metals. Still, today they may be made of one or two metals for better acoustics.
Singing bowls made today are great for meditation, prayer, and reiki. They improve concentration, alertness, and focus by triggering alpha brain wave states. That’s why the sound of a singing bowl is calming.
Each singing bowl is associated with a specific chakra from the seven-chakra system. One chakra may help you be creative, another inspires, and yet another will leads you to success.

Pain is a signal captured by your nervous system. It implies something is wrong in your body with a tingling, pricking, pinching, throbbing, burning, stabbing, stinging, or cramping sensation.
And healing physical pain with sound isn’t a new therapeutic approach. When you’re feeling better by listening to your favorite song at a time of agony or mental pain, you’re essentially healing yourself with sound vibrations.
