How to Heal with Singing Bowls
Traditional Tibetan Healing Methods
by Suren Shrestha
I was acquainted with Suren Shrestha from running into him at metaphysical fairs and trade shows in Colorado for years. I bought my first Japanese singing bowl from him because it was very much like the one my mother kept on her Buddhist altar at home. Suren's quiet, loving demeanor and ready smile always touches you in a loving embrace. I'm happy to now offer his book and healing singing bowls here on Soul2Soul Treasures.
Over the last few years Westerners have become more open to alternative methods of healing, and the use of Tibetan singing bowls to address a variety of ailments has drawn considerable interest. Suren Shrestha is a master of these ancient techniques. His book includes detailed, step-by-step instructions and photographs showing how to place and strike the bowls. Some of these methods have been taught to only a few Eastern practitioners, and Shrestha is committed to spreading them in the West to all who want to learn.
Benefits from singing bowl therapy include relief from pain and stress- related conditions. It can be used in healing the effects of chemotherapy, and reducing pain and discomfort from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and depression. Clients experience improved memory, clarity, vitality, and better sleep, and often experience the effects for several days.
Suren Shrestha grew up in Nepal, where he learned about traditional Tibetan healing therapies, and since coming to the United States he has been teaching them to others. He is the illustrator for his book as well as the author. Suren is raising funds through his teaching to build an orphanage for the homeless children in his native village. He lives in Boulder, Colorado.
