Himalayan Singing Bowl Immersion Level II


Level One is required to take Level Two, if you haven't taken Level One, please check out the Immersion that is scheduled on March 18 & 19th. 

Level 2 of The Singing Bowl Immersion or 'The Therapist Course,' is a totally distinct course from the first level both in intention and activities. While the first level introduces people to the innate power of the bowls and step by step gives accessible techniques and skills leading to increased confidence, the 2nd level or Therapist Course puts its attention elsewhere. Here the emphasis is less on the power of the bowls and more on the role of the Therapist, both at the level of applied attention, setting conditions for the client's transformation and using more sophisticated patterns, bowl placement and playing approaches. While the first level has been indeed influenced and refined via the teachings of Singing bowl legend, Mitch Nur of which Geoffrey traveled 7 times to study with, the Therapist Course can be considered a picking and choosing of some of the most relevant perspectives and techniques gained during those travels for bowl players with some already held experience. For those wanting to literally deepen in the path of the therapist and to have more clearly defined both the steps in that path and the tools that can further help realize that path, this course is indispensible. Like in the level 1 course, expect plenty of relaxation, connection and increasing of understanding. But yes, in addition to that, a greater sense of profoundness and mystery to both the bowls and what it means to work as a sound therapist.
