Over 38 years ago I traveled to the Himalayas in search of Singing Bowls and the information about them. I traveled beyond
the foothills to the majestic high mountains and into the mountainside villages and monastery's in the hopes of unravelling
the mystery surrounding Singing Bowls. In those days there were very few Westerners that had this interest, in fact you could
count us on just one hand. Nowadays everyone is a Master, just because they attended a program or two, or actually did a 10
day vacation to Kathmandu. There's an old saying in India, " Your a Master, when you have perfected your craft for 30
years or more, not until then." I prescribe to this old saying.
Over 20 years ago one of my Teacher's at that time told me to teach the public about the true history of the Singing Bowls
before this information became lost. I began by offering simple classes, but soon realized that a genuine need to teach serious
practitioner's was at hand. Students who could heal others and possessed " a fire in the heart ", needed personal
instruction. It was then at that time that I started to offer my Master Classes with Singing Bowls.
Students who graduate from this Master Class program have been given an immense amount of information concerning the history,
culture, and applications that can be utilized using Singing Bowls. They have been instructed, that is all they have done.
I only certify that I have given them the instructions concerning the history and uses, and I have asked them to be as honest
as they can be in evaluating their personal expertise. I have had some very good students over the years, and most of them
still attend my Master Class programs and contribute directly to the program. Knowledge you can get in a book, wisdom you
only receive through direct experience. Knowledge without wisdom does not amount to much. I have given my Master Class students
the knowledge, and it is with great hope that they gain the experience and develop ' Skillful Means ' to become an effective
practitioner with Himalayan Singing Bowls.
