Sound therapy using Tibetan bowls is classified as a vibrational therapy. Sound therapy aims to establish harmony and health, promoting integrated development. Tibetan bowls are made of hand-beaten brass and imported from Nepal.
The sound of the bowls acts on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. It fosters relaxation and getting in touch with the pleasures brought by simple things. To achieve this goal, Geoff Torkington leads listeners to a state of deep meditation by chanting over 10 bowls simultaneously.
Torkington is yogi curator and founder of The Elephant Bowl. A long-time yoga student, certified in Agama and Hirdaya yoga, he has devoted years of his life to the study and practice of yoga and Buddhist teachings. Currently, he offers concerts, workshops, meditations and healing sessions with Tibetan bowls.
Vida Yoga Bajío seeks to promote The Elephant Bow Project through the various activities related to Tibetan bowls. This project is not for profit, and most of the proceeds are reinvested in more bowls, helping the people of Nepal and raising awareness about the potential of healing sounds, music and meditation.
