Esplanade Presents | A Tapestry of Sacred Music

Rejoicing with Singing Bowls: A Meditative Experience
Shima Healing Institute (Singapore)

Sun, 21st April 2019
10am -10.45am
Esplanade Concourse


A singing bowl is a type of bowl-shaped bell that rings with a warm and resonant tone when struck. The instrument has a long history in ceremonial music and meditation in different traditions across Asia, from Tibet to Japan. In more recent times, the singing bowl has become popular as an instrument of sound healing.

Get a 45-min meditative experience with ancient singing bowls as you listen and learn to relax to the sound and silence between each vibration. Conducted by the members of Shima Healing Institute, the session encourages a state of joyful peace and centeredness.

Shima Healing Institute

Shima means “island” in Japanese, “love” in Sanskrit and “mother” in Navajo, Native American. The healing institute is a training centre for the traditional healing arts, located on the beautiful and enchanting island of Koh Yao Noi, Thailand. They impart unadulterated ancient practices and empower students to cultivate and embody the true essence of healing. The institute has taken part in many festivals and performed in the region, in Bangkok, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, and at Universe of Sound Festival 2018 and Esplanade’s A Tapestry of Sacred Music 2017. Also, as a gesture of giving back to society, Shima Healing hosts regular charity events in singing bowl meditation for charitable causes globally.
