Tobias Kaye talks about his Sounding bowls, beautiful healing and musical instruments made from wood, which, since 1991 have been used by the NHS in hospitals, by people looking for self healing, sound therapists and care homes, looking for relief and respite for their clients and patients. It is Tobias mission to spread the Sounding bowls around the world. Tune in to this journey down the rabbit hole of the healing powers of Sounding bowls… our gift from the trees…
Used in hospitals, hospices and care homes, for those with disabilities, dementia and babies, lowering blood pressure and heart rates, each bowl, a ‘gift from the trees,’ sings its own song, calling us to retune our listening to hear their message and heal ourselves. A Fibonacci curve in the resonator is responsible for rich harmonic overtones in every bowl.
Tobias Kaye is a sculptor and musical instrument developer who has followed a western meditative path for over 40 years. Born in Ireland (1956,) Waldorf educated, he has worked with plants, people and computers , settling into woodturning and sculpture nearly 40 years ago. In the late 1980s an image appeared in Tobias’s meditation of a bowl with strings inside. He instinctively knew what he was being shown.. and called on to produce, and ever since his first bowl he has taken it as a life mission to develop and spread the “Sounding Bowls.” around the world.
Since 1991 his most predominant customer has been the NHS. Other groups include more recently people looking for self healing sound therapists and care homes, looking for relief and respite for their clients and patients
