Book & CD. Over the last few years Westerners have become more open to alternative methods of healing, and the use of Tibetan singing bowls to address a variety of ailments has drawn considerable interest. Suren Shrestha is a master of these ancient techniques. His book includes detailed, step-by-step instructions and photographs showing how to place and strike the bowls, along with a CD that includes some of the healing therapies. Some of these methods have been taught to only a few Eastern practitioners, and Shrestha is committed to spreading them in the West to all who want to learn. The newly revised and expanded edition of this popular book includes over 15 new techniques for using singing bowls, covering the use of one or two bowls for treating conditions such as insomnia, neck and shoulder tension, and muscle cramps throughout the body; and using the bowls with yoga postures and heated herbal therapy packs. Much of the new information in this edition was requested by readers of the first edition and students in the author's many classes. Benefits from singing bowl therapy include relief from pain and stress-related conditions. It can be used in healing the effects of chemotherapy, and reducing pain and discomfort from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and depression. Clients experience improved memory, clarity, vitality, and better sleep, and often experience the effects for several days. This remains the only book on the market with step-by-step instructions for the therapeutic use of these bowls.
Suren Shrestha was born in Nepal, forty-five miles southeast of Mt. Everest. In the village where he grew up, people were healed by herbalists, monks and medicine men using shamans drums, gongs, and mantras. At age fifteen, he came to the United States, later attended college, and received a B.S. in Civil Engineering. In 1999, he began his own business, Serenity Tibet, in Boulder, Colorado, where he lives with his wife and daughter. Noting the growing interest in alternative medicine in the US, Suren returned to Nepal to learn how to practice ancient healing techniques that use sound and vibration. He was taught these by Tibetan monks and the yogi Tahalkishor Maharaj. Suren has given workshops and assisted clients with healing bowl work in the Rocky Mountain region and all over the United States. He is raising funds through his teaching to build an orphanage for the homeless children in his native village.
