Balancing & Purifying the 5 Elements: A Tibetan Bon Technique

tingsToday’s toning at the Light Center was so yummy! What a great group of people…deep listeners with open hearts and open voices. After connecting with each of the elements (earth, water, fire, air, ether) with chi gong, we practiced balancing the five elements with this Bon series of mudra and mantra:

We wrapped up the meditation with the mantra of all the elements, A YAM RAM MAM KHAM DROM DU. By then, we were all so ready to create with each other in a deep freestyle toning session.

Give it a try! It’s easy, feels great, and works wonders.

The World of Sound Therapy Part III: Tibetan Instruments

The Tibetans  are masters at healing with sound. Tibetan bells, ting-shas, the shang, gongs, and other instruments are used to shake up the energy in the body and dispel disease, shift stagnated energy, or fill the body with healthy vitality. For example, ting-shas are special bells used to scan the body and actually change pitch or timbre to signify energies in the body that need to be cleared.

Himalayan bowls are sometimes placed on or around the body to allow their vibration to penetrate into the cells while bells and gongs are played near or around the body to shower it with intense, audible vibrations. Science has shown that these bowls emit alpha waves which are the same waves emitted by the brain in meditation. Achieving this state is essential to healing as it activates the body’s own wisdom to heal itself.
