'In our practice of crafting new singing bowls for this time we reconnect to the tradition of the ancient bowl makers of Tibet who worked the bowls in meditation and prayer, infusing it with the spirit of the purpose for which it was made. We perceive the process of the work with the elements of fire, metal, water, air, wood to be an alchemical process of transformation and incarnation. The incarnation, or coming into form, of a very specific and unique frequency. Our focus is not so much on the particular tuning but more on the quality, purpose and essence of the sound. It is through our whole and open hearted engagement with the craft that we too go through the transformation and fine tuning assisted by the elemental forces and beings.'
'Working with Gabriella and Heather has been the deepest and most profound experience of transformation for me. Never before have I felt so safe in a workshop. My process with the bowl was tough at times, and always - like a miracle - one of these beautiful enablers showed up to be with me. Sometimes to support me in the handling of the tools, sometimes to listen, sometimes to just be in silence together for a while, sometimes to ask this one question that allowed me to move on...they hold the rim of the circle in wondrous ways ... a healing sanctuary ... a sacred vessel.'
