A Review by Sand Artist, Lawrence Koh

The most popular question I get from visitors is, “Why do you set up such a place specialized in Singing Bowls?”

I have always been very sensitive to sound. My encounter with singing bowls has brought me so many positive changes, and I have seen similar results in others, both friends and customers. It is the simplicity of application and the consistent tangible results from these complex but magical sounds that led me into devoting myself in spreading the love of the singing bowls. 

I am truly honored to have met so many beautiful people through running this humble space, The Singing Bowl Gallery. Amongst all, I’d like to take the opportunity to feature this very talented soul: sand artist, Lawrence Koh. Here, he shares his experience in how the singing bowl has impacted and supported his wellbeing. - Christina Shiu -

A Review by Sand Artist Lawrence Koh

As a professional full time sand artist, my life journey often involves performing on stage and facing thousands and thousands of audience. Hence, mindfulness and awareness are extremely essential to me, be it on stage or off stage. Facing regular stressful environments and working with people from all walks of life, my practice in meditation has become a must for me every day.

One day, by chance I discovered the Singing Bowl Gallery and upon getting my hands on one sing bowl that resonates with me and using it for my daily meditation day and night, I am now an instant fan of singing bowl! I used to be skeptical about how such simple looking bowl can be used for meditation or even for healing purposes, until I tried it personally and my entire meditation experience has transformed positively! A singing bowl is like a loyal friend who never hesitate to lend a helping hand to us in order to lead us into a state of mindfulness and awareness. The otherworldly sound of the singing bowl can indeed bring my mind back to the here and now in the most welcoming way possible, and the powerful resonance seems to communicate with every single cell in my body. Leading to a deep state of relaxation and healing. The singing bowl even successfully helped me recover from various headaches and stress!

Having seen low quality singing bowls selling everywhere in various countries and shops, I have come to understand that the selection and purchasing of a real singing bowl requires quality assurance with an authentic source for its creation, together with a knowledgeable expert. Thankfully the Singing Bowl Gallery provides that assurance of quality for me and also the prove of authenticity! Christina, the owner is extremely knowledgeable about singing bowl in general and I am so glad that she is here promoting such useful tool that can help people to achieve a deeper state of mindfulness and awareness. It is now my number one trustworthy place to purchase truly authentic and high quality hand made singing bowls! Upon purchasing my first bowl, I went back again just after a week, to purchase a new larger singing bowl! The quality of these singing bowls purchased from the Singing Bowl Gallery is just superb and the amazing sound produced by these beautiful singing bowls is just indescribable and should only be experienced in person. Pay a visit to the Singing Bowl Gallery and you will understand the power of sound at its finest!
