This moon bowl is said to be started and finished during the FUll MOON by a hammering process. These bowls are made to have a very deep tone and whole-body vibration. These bowls are used in Meditation, Sound Healing, Vibration Healing, and Feng Shui. Hand-hammered singing bowls are made by a special hammering process. Every single singing bowl is carefully hand-beaten and requires several processes to finish up and shape into a perfect singing bowl.
Tibetan Singing Bowls are created in Tibet. All bowls are made out of seven different metals which represent the universe: Gold, Silver, Copper, Zinc, Tin, Iron, and Brass.
To Play a Singing Bowl: Place the singing bowl on your palm with your fingers away from the metal. The less you touch it with your hand the more it will ring. A very small singing bowl could rest on your fingertips. Gently tap the rim of the singing bowl with the mallet and steadily go around the outside edge of the singing bowl. Keep a little pressure on the stick while going around the bowl. If it chatters press more firmly as you round that corner. Generally the harder you're able to push the louder the bowl will get.
