'...a psychedelic whirl of chanting, dancing, drums, cymbals...' (The Times)

Eight Tibetan monks bring a moving and inspirational insight into the world of sacred music and monastic dance from the contemplative, mesmerising chant of Buddhist texts and mantras to the majestic brocade-costumed masked dances.

Michael Ormiston & Candida Valentino are the UK's most respected and experienced Mongolian Khöömii overtone/undertone singers.

Experience the magical sounds of the Singing Bowls, their history & use in meditation, relaxation & deep listening practices. Also learn the various techniques of making the bowls ring and sing.
Singing Bowls awaken a beautiful mystery and are used for deep relaxation, meditation, sound massage and for following the Yoga of Sound
Please bring your own bowls (not compulsory as Michael and Candida will bring a selection of bowls, mallets and wands from their unique 30 year old collection). This should be a real treat.
