AMADARA LIVE SOUND BATH & MEDITATION WITH TIBETAN SINGING BOWLS
SUNDAY, 1/17/21 @ 10:00 AM CST @ FACEBOOK.COM/AMADARASHOP
Sunday, January 17, 2021 @ 10:00 AM CST, AMADARA will host a digital meditation with live music and question and answer featuring our wide selection of Tibetan singing bowls from our Facebook page @ FACEBOOK.COM/AMADARASHOP.
AMADARA is Chicago’s premier importer of Tibetan singing bowls: musical instruments and meditative tools that have been played for thousands of years to help people find peace within themselves. Since 1997, our family has been importing unique items from around the world and opened AMADARA in 2014 in Chicago’s Lincoln Square neighborhood. Currently, AMADARA has almost 1,000 singing bowls available in its collection.
We hope this live sound bath and meditation will help you learn more about the beautiful tradition of meditating with Tibetan singing bowls and bring some peace to you and your loved ones. During the meditation, hosted by artist and activist Stephen Raskauskas live at Amadara, we will discuss the history and significance of Tibetan singing bowls.
Stephen, who studies in the Kirana Gharana with Sanhitaji Nandi, will sing devotional music in Sanskrit and Bengali while playing the bowls. We will also answer questions for those who want to deepen their relationship with Tibetan singing bowls. You can also contact us to learn more at:
