What is a Sounding Bowl?

A Sounding Bowl is a musical instrument made to create healing sounds. Unique in world history, its strings are contained within the resonant sound-space and made from one whole piece of locally grown hardwood. These unique handcrafted instruments are used across the world by therapists, performers, hospitals, educational institutes and individuals, to heal, inspire and restore people’s connection to their heart.

Circles of Awakening

A new training in spiritual development

Sincere seekers know that the path of awakening is necessarily a lonely path. The training that Tobias is offering is based around meditations and exercises for coming into one’s true Centre, integrating your spirit ever deeper into your body. It starts in Sept and runs till June, one weekend per month. The circle is the basis for this training. Meeting as equals on the path we become like the strings in a Sounding Bowl. Though we may all point in different directions, together we can create harmony and mutually support a healing reality coming into being. more…

“A form either sings where it stands or is forever silent.”

I have used it at work with 4 patients so far and have noticed in my dementia work that the more severely unwell the person is, the more profound the response.

Adrienne Freeman

This is the healing power of the bowl; it manages to bring together disparate and dissonant, disintegrated parts and bind them into a satisfying whole. This experience for anyone who feels any element of disharmony, disease or disenchantment, is restoring and relieving.

Liz Butt

My patients in forensic psychiatry have consistently been moved by the sounding bowl; it compels people to be creative.

James Robertson RMTH

Recording the Wind in the Branches album with Tobias was a balanced meeting of two beautiful acoustic instruments, the perfect arc of musical phrase and artistic collaboration. The result is transcendental acoustic, a timeless record of when English timber and Japanese bamboo met and the wind shook the branches.

Adrian Freedman, Shakuhachi master

After the Sound Bath I felt as though every cell in my body was affected, fed, sort of softened and more. Yes, My cells felt re-hydrated with beauty.
