“Tibetan Singing Bowls awaken a beautiful and powerful mystery . . .

They produce the sacred sound of AUM,

Their rich sonic vibrations alters space, mind, and time

They are used for meditation and for following the Yoga of Sound

The sound and music of the bowls vibrate the body’s cells

and fills the listener with healing energy”


Michael Ormiston & Candida Valentino have been playing and studying the bowls for over twenty years.

They have played for His Holiness the Dalai Lama, as well as the Tibet Foundation and the Tibet House Trust.

Over the years they have performed in concert with Tibetologist Alain Presencer, Gongmaster Don Conreaux

and Frank Perry. They have been leading meditations using Tibetan Singing Bowls ever since the

Venerable Khamba Lam Choijampts, the head Abbot of Gandan monastery in Ulaanbaatar,

Mongolia heard Michael playing. On hearing the bowls the Khamba Lam said they were to be used for meditation.


Michael & Candida have released many CDs of Tibetan Singing Bowls as well as a comprehensive teaching DVD.
