Sound Bowl Therapy and Ceremonies

“Feeling the vibe?”

“I like your vibe…?”

“We seem to be on the same wavelength.”

“…just dance to the beat and let the music carry you.”

There are plenty of ways where we already recognize the power of sound and vibrations. But it took till the early 80ies till people realized that certain vibrations and sound waves 🌊 Resonate with certain parts of the body. And then there are sound bowls…

I knew them already before they were cool haha. It was about 13 years ago when I got stoned with my best friend and went to his fathers Physio and osteopathy practice one night after a party and discovered the magic of these bowls…in not quite a therapeutic way. But that doesn’t matter as we felt what we needed to feel, energy.

Traveling to Nepal, one of the three countries that makes these bowls in the handmade/traditional way, I fulfilled a dream and became a certified sound bowl therapist myself. Getting a deeper understanding and an intense practice, I figured out what’s behind all this and am happy to now share it with people at home.

But how does it work…really…?

It’s quite simple. Fill one of these bowls with water, bring it to swing…the water will go crazy and jump and splash. Now take the body, with 75-80% water/liquid and imagine what happens if you hold a swinging bowl in close proximity to the body. Your body jumps from the inside. And now there are different bowls, different sizes and different tones that create a frequency for guess what…different areas of the body.

And your welcome to come by and try it out. The F-bowl, tuned for the heart space feels ok all over the body but as soon as you reach the heart space you know why its called a heart bowl.

Like this, you work upwards, loosen up all parts of the body and if needed place special attention on areas of trouble or pain. Certain feelings and emotions can have a serious impact on your body, take belly ache from stress for example.

This Kind of stuff results in “energetic” blockages in the long run and with the bowls, you can work on these blockages. The solar plexus, stores a lot of anger, the pelvis area stores fear and sexual blockage…just to name a few examples. Let the water jump and you’ll quickly feel a bit more at ease with the area and issue you have. And if you have no issues…well congratu-fucking-lations then it is an amazing and healthy way to space out and relax. Be my guest.
For sessions, I’m happy to come to your home, do group sessions, sound baths and individual therapy sessions that focus more on you individually and include a more personal approach.

GROUP SESSIONS

We are proud to present our new concept: NEST SESSIONS

An extended sound ceremony, a DJ set, a massage therapist and living room vibes with sauna and hot tub on the rooftop. Envision a cozy living room filled with pillows, sheepskins, all kinds of fluffy stuff and of course the warm company of like-minded Beings. This will be our Nest for the afternoon and night.

The ceremony starts during day time. After the use of our Tibetan bowls and other Heart-instruments, we effortlessly flow from the traditional instruments into a DJ set by sunset. Yes, that’s correct, we will dance, hang out and vibe on all that is offered. Because it’s not only dj-ing; on the roof terrace we will open the sauna and the hot tub! Healthy vega food from the BBQ will be served, there is chocolate and there will also be a massage therapist.

Be aware, all of this is held in the sacred setting off the ceremony so for that reason we will open and close the space altogether.

We are very excited about this one and hope you will find your way to the East of Amsterdam to celebrate with us.

Make sure you bring a towel, bathrobe and flipflops.

Delight Yoga Ceremonies at Prinseneiland

In Amsterdam’s most beautiful yoga studio, we are hosting our very first sound ceremonies. As this, is our yoga study and teaching ground, we feel humbled to have this opportunity. We invite you to join the ceremony and connect to the elements that are so clearly felt in the space with it’s massive windows to the water. The big buddha statue, the heated floor and of course al the instruments provide a contained and warm setting to easily turn inward and feel what wants to be felt, and in that way turning our wounds into flowers. Hopefully living our lives feeling more empowered and reassured that we can live life without a center, but right in the midst of our experience.
