Tibetan singing bowls concerts at Denver Botanic Gardens celebrate 11 years delivering a musical performance intentionally designed to relax the nervous system!
During the busy holiday season, we tend to get caught up in all the "doing." We invite you to gather friends and family to join us for a chance to slow down and savor the spirit of the holidays. Tibetan singing bowls have been used for thousands of years as instruments of healing. The bowls are tuned to musical notes corresponding to the different chakras of the body and played to balance energy in the body. Since we are made of mostly water, the vibrational effect is a full body cellular massage.
Emerging studies indicate that listening to music you enjoy increases the amount of dopamine your brain releases. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that plays an important role in our cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning. Why is this important, you may ask? Well, dopamine is directly connected to the reward center of the brain, activated by music, and during a Tibetan singing bowls concert you are listening to beautiful, relaxing music. While most people choose to lie down and relax on their yoga mats, cozied up with blankets during the performance, some choose to sit up on their mats or in chairs to meditate.
There is a reason that meditation has been practiced for thousands of years and that today in this day and age with as much as we have access to, meditation still remains an invaluable resource. The simple fact is meditation works! Depending on your experience with meditation, it may seem a bit intimidating to meditate for 40 to 50 minutes. However, this journey is facilitated with the support of live music. The addition of Tibetan bowls creates space to embrace the present moment, feeling more connected to mind, body and spirit. Whether you choose to lie down or sit, let this experience carry away all that no longer serves you. As the chakras re-align, breathe in peace and enter a profound state of physical, mental and emotional relaxation.
Treat yourself during this busy time of year, between social gatherings, shopping excursions, and wintry travel to nourish yourself. Life is felt in the moments and the beats in between.
