You are viewing a brand new, shrink-wrapped, 60 minute Holistic Healing / Relaxation / Massage and Meditation CD, "Steven Halpern ~ Singing Bowls of Shangri-la", featuring the only known recording of a rare 11th century golden singing bowl from sacred lineage holder Thea Surasu. The incredibly sustained tones of the grandfather bowl are at times combined with other bowls, but no other instruments are added. Listen to a few sound clips... We carry a wide variety of dance, yoga, and exercise instruction DVDs, as well as 1000s of Middle Eastern, New Age, Native American, Healing, and World Music CDs.
Bowls of Shangri-la creates sacred sonic space, evoking images of the legendary
Himalayan valley of Shangri-la, land of eternal bliss. It is especially recommended
for meditation and healing for those wishing to use sound as an entry into the Silence.
Several tracks include smaller bowls, as well as natural environmental sounds.
For over a thousand years, special golden "singing bowls" have been part of a secret healing tradition in Tibet. Never before recorded, this rare 11th century healing instrument produces a breathtaking range of overtones.
The sound evokes a transcendent state of meditation (especially when listened to with headphones). The incredible sustained vibrations resonate and attune the listener at the cellular level. No synthesizers or other instruments are added.
Over 1000 years ago, Tibetan masters received the secret and sacred art of creating "singing bowls" to evoke a transcendent state of meditation and healing. The ancients believed that singing bowls were physical manifestations of a higher intelligence, an embodiment of spiritual sound that tunes body, mind and soul. Thea Surasu was initiated into this lineage, and is a Keeper of this healing tradition.

Thea Surasu: 11th century Tibetan Healing Bowl
"One of the amazing qualities of the bowls
is that their sound changes as you move around the room. This will also occur as
you change your position relative to your stereo speakers.
"Symphony for Xanadu was performed live. The section that sounds like a choir of monks chanting is a manifestation of the multiple bowls' harmonics interacting. About 14 minutes into the Symphony, many people notice their sinuses opening. At other points, you may also feel your third eye resonating. "Listening to this recording, individuals with a higher degree of sensitivity can see a figure 8 of energy open over them as their body is engulfed in a luminous halo of light and sound." - THEA SURASU
2003 update: It is with great sadness that I share the news that Thea recently made his transition to the next stage of his personal evolution. His loving presence will be missed. This recording is now also a fitting tribute, as he had wished, that continues the legacy of his work in the world.

SURASU is a healer, artist, and magician who has spent twenty years exploring the
transformative power of sound, using sonic tools of truth and Singing Bowls from
many cultures. He is a Keeper of that tradition. In person, Thea places this 11th
century Tibetan bowl directly on a person's body. This facilitates a state of full
release and deep relaxation at a molecular level. Thea Surasu is also one of the
leading authorities and collectors of blossom jade, "the stone of heaven."
