Karma Sonam Dorje

Sound Pioneer and Recording Artist Richard Rudis (Sonam Dorje) creates transformational waves of Sound Bathing for each participant with the rising and falling rhythms, tonalities and vibrations of an Earth Gong tuned to the sound of the primordial AUM - 'the Universal chord' - the vibrational signature of our Mother Earth (Ghia) as she dances with our Sun (Sol).

These ancient sacred sound objects were consciously created by Buddhist monks as part of a spiritual path and used for physical/spiritual healing as well as ritual ceremonies. 

The Bowls we offer are old and made of a seven metal alloy: 

Gold - Silver - Mercury - Copper -  Iron - Tin  - Lead

pilgrims

The iron is held in highest esteem as it is collected from the Himalayan mountain tops and is known as 

“the Thunderbolts of God” (meteor iron). 

They are collected in a honorable fashion by Tibetan Lamas especially for us. 

The late and venerable Lama Rimpoche Karapa Karmapa stated that the sound of the Bowls are the sound of the “Void", (the Buddha described the true nature of reality as ultimate emptiness beyond phenomenon). The sound is useful for meditation, healing, stress reduction, biofeedback, chakra balancing and cell toning. The tones set up a ‘frequency following response’ that create a synchronization between the left and right brain hemispheres. Relaxation, creativity and a sense of balance follows. Meditation with the sound helps the sitter to become in tune with the universal chord which is the basis of existence and the core element of our inner 'still point'.
