"This book is intended to be a comprehensive study of the 'singing bowls' that have become so popular in the West," says the author. And comprehensive it is. Beginning with the history and traditions of these "bells" that rest upon the earth, Perry then leads the reader through the development of singing bowls in Ancient China, their use in Tibetan ritual and culture, and their appearance in the West. He covers some 250 different styles of bowl, techniques for drawing out the sound, and information on how to choose the right bowl, wand, and mallet. He discusses the yoga of sound, mantra, and the relation of different bowls to the zodiac, planets, and the chakras, and offers 26 exercises to "accompany the isolating of one of the partials from your bowl." Perry's passion for the subject, combined with over 40 years of experience with singing bowls, makes this book a must-read for sound healers, musicians, and anyone drawn to sacred sound.

An excellent book for anyone who wants to stop playing their instrument and start playing Music. Full of absolute gems — of both musical and spiritual principles — for expanding your awareness and consciousness, and experiencing not only Music but Life differently. Very reminiscent of books like Illusions or Way of the Peaceful Warrior in the theme of eccentric spiritual teacher imparting life-changing wisdom to a surprised student. If you like those books and you like music, you're good to go here. A quick and easy read, but with lots of food for thought.
