Three Ways to Make Your Sound Healing Practice More Effective

Diane Mandle Singing Tibetan Bowls
Over the past ten years I have observed students and practitioners alike with their Tibetan bowls. Whether you have one bowl or many, there are several things you can do to maximize the effectiveness of sound healing.

1. Pay attention to the Direction you are singing the bowl in. Clockwise will help either release and ground tension/ energy OR expand & strengthen it depending on the INTENTION you bring to the gesture. Counter–clockwise will help to re-awaken the energy and /or nourish a weak area.

2. Use Rhythm and Pace as you play. Slow and spaced out striking of a bowl will create a calming effect. Faster will energize. You can strike a bowl once and let the sound dissipate or several times in succession to create more energy and an enlivening atmosphere. If you have three bowls play with rhythm &pace to create different textures and see how they affect the environment.

3. Consider how when you add volume to the two practices above; that changes the energetic outcome as well. Start slow and very quiet. Try building slow and low to slow and louder. Then practice slow and low to faster and louder. Using these three methods will give you a whole new range of textures to work with as you explore the world of sound healing. My home study course, Ancient Sounds for a New Age, offers more tips and a structured approach to working with the Sacred Sound Instruments.  

Diáne Mandle is founder of the Tibetan Bowl Sound Healing School and Sound Energy Healing, providing resources, services, events, and training in the use of the Tibetan Sacred Sound instruments.

 Diane Mandle  of the Tibetan Bowl School and demonstrates how two bowls that are not in harmony find one another. This is a basic principal of healing- that all discord is in search of harmony. The Tibetan singing bowls work to create healing thought creating alignment between our bodies and the sound healing frequencies of the bowls.

This sterling silver angel from is part of a collection of chakra pendants. Each real gemstone represents a specific chakra. When I conduct Tibetan bowl sound healing concerts, people often say they see colors associated with specific sounds of the singing bowls. Color/light is sound made visible. They are seeing the color of sound. Wearing spiritual jewelry, or having spiritual art in your home helps connect you with the frequency of that piece. It is an awesome thing. ( diane mandle)

The music is rich with the textures of Tibetan singing bowls, gantas ( bells) digeredoo, gongs, tembura and vocals. Sarasvati is the goddess of  audible arts said to bring the beauty of heaven to earth. The cd represents a journey into the dreamscape of beauty and possibility.

All Beings have a journey while on this earth. If they do not complete their journey this time, they may come back again and again to fulfill their path. What is your path? I post this on my Sound Energy Healing blog because the Tibetan singing bowls are tools created to help us get in touch with our essence and in that way become clearer as to what our path is.

I really love Buddhism because it is so human. Of course we cannot help everyone.. especially if there is a barb in the relationship. But lo and behold a teaching that allows us to grow in our compassion and in our humanity...  It reminds me of :if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all"-- In other words.. do no harm. Learning about Tibetan bowls and sound healing is also learning to be a better human being.

Moving Energy

When we use bowls in sound healing sessions, we can use patterns that represent movement. This beautiful pattern of sacred geometry used in the context of a sound healing session with Tibetan bowls can be effective to either expand the strength of an issue you might be working on or to bring focus to it.. The ganta (bell) especially is useful in moving the energy in specific patterns and in fact, the ganta is all about moving energy.  Want to learn more? Visit our school at:

Tibetan Singing Bowls

There are so many kinds of Himalayan (Tibetan) singing bowls and a variety of qualities as well. Some sound sweet but the sound have no longevity. Some have great energy but are not harmonious with other bowls. Some are more geared to consciousness transformation and some to physical healing. Some are great sound healing practitioner quality and some are Master quality.. It is hard to know what to get. Every bowl we sell is of the highest quality and comes with an education .

Sacred Geometry with Sound Healing

 Sacred Geometric patterns reflect the blueprint of all life forms. In my sound healing concerts I project stunning images of sacred geometry and invite you to look at them with a soft gaze. This helps to energize parts of the brain that don't normally get much action. By the time I start to play the Tibetan singing bowls you are in a wonderful expanded meditative zone! Visit us at

It is summer and there are so many good, healthy and beautiful things surrounding us. It is such a good time to choose what brings vitality,what brings peace and joy. Our bodies are our temples. We can nourish them with delicious healthy treats, colors, music and of course relationships that bring joy.  IN the words of one of my favorite poets, David Whyte.. "Anything and anyone that does not bring you alive is too small for you."  My CD Being Well: the Journey can help you to define better choices, eliminate old negative beliefs and come back into your divine nature.  If you like Tibetan singing bowls and guided meditations, then give it a try.

This beautiful dragonfly is a symbol of transformation. What does it take to transform areas of our lives? When we surround ourselves with sacred art and sacred sound, these tools help us to expand our consciousness because they emit frequencies that we align with.  You can choose to wear gemstones that will help you in a specific area of your life.. or colors. When you combine these elements with sacred sound the effect is amplified. If you are reading this, you already know that the sound of Tibetan singing bowls used in meditation and in combination with sacred stones, art and color will change things in and around you.  Can I have a witness?

Look at what is above his head. It looks like a bowl, doesn't it. We have so many choices as to where to place our minds. None are wrong, really. But each has an outcome. We can train ourselves to choose the thoughts that produce the most effective outcome: Peace, Well being.  When you meditate with Tibetan singing bowls, your brainwaves will join with the frequency of the healing sound of the bowls.. These bowls have been created with healing frequencies that lift body, mind and spirit to its fullest potential.  Why not choose that?

There are many tools and gifts in the universe to help us open our hearts. The Tibetan singing bowls are one of them. These sacred instruments deepen our meditation, and help us to release our ego boundaries so we can be bigger than our perceived selves and open our hearts more and more.

Did you know that light/color is sound waves made visible... Colors are a  higher frequency of sound and this is why often during Tibetan bowl sound healing and meditation concerts people see colors that are associated with specific sounds.

Sound Energy Healing

We listen and work with Tibetan singing bowls to shift our perception from our seduction into past or future 'stories' and 'fear' to present moment.  Even the simple act of just listening with focused attention to the singing bowls brings us into a kind of sound healing meditation that is about "right now". When we are in present moment and not in the clutches of one story or the other, we can see things in a clear manner and respond rather than react.  To learn more about the sacred sound family of instruments visit

Sound Healing Echos

It's been 3 months since my return from Mysore, India. I hoped to hold on to the slow lilting rhythm I had grown to love while on my journey. It is still with me, at least in my mind and in my cellular memory. When, after a bustling day of sound healing sessions, marketing my Tibetan bowl concerts and attending to the business of my Tibetan bowl School, I close my eyes- then the drifting begins. At first I see/feel the silence of the early morning hours punctuated only by the beautifully haunting sound of chanting from the mosque near where I lived. It is as though I am there and my body responds with a deep contented sign. Then I recall the feel of walking through the streets on the way to the early morning yoga class. It is still dark and the barking of the street dogs come from every direction. Then I admire the soft and graceful sway of the women in their sari's, flowers fixed into the long braids down their backs who are on their way to gather the herbs they will sell on street corners. On the way back from yoga the town is in full swing and the sound of scooters, cows, children going to school, car horns and street vendors fill my ears. It is a gorgeous cacophony of sound textures.. All these linger in my body and mind. When I open my eyes I am back home in California. My heart feels a longing for just a little more time in India and I know I will be back there again.
