You must be ready to accept the possibility that there is a limitless range of awareness for which we now have no words; that awareness can expand beyond range of your ego, your self, your familiar identity, beyond everything you have learned, beyond your notions of space and time, beyond the differences which usually separate people from each other and from the world around them.

  2. People will announce when they are going to meditate so you can join in.
  3. They will “check in” to start and “check out” when they’re done.
  4. You can tweet that you’re checking in to join them or announce your meditations to invite others to join you. Just say when you’ll be sitting, check in, and check out. Please use #OMCru so everyone can see your tweet.

You can also find a few others meditating online under these hashtags: #wannasit, #twangha, and #28DayChallenge (28 Days of meditation during September coordinating the U.K. launch of Sharon Salzberg’s book The Power of Meditation, previously released in the U.S. as Real Happiness).

How to Use a Singing Bowl

It’s difficult to get a good sound out of the bowl without a bit of instruction but I found a detailed  video and blog post on the web. Here’s a concise version…

Sit comfortably in an upright position. Centre yourself and breathe slowly and steadily.

Hold the bowl on the flat of your non-dominant hand, fingers extended not curved around the bowl, at solar plexus level with the elbow slightly away from the rib cage. Tip the bowl at a slight angle across the body, ensuring it is still comfortably resting on the flat of your hand.

With the other hand, grasp the wooden mallet firmly about two inches from the ‘playing end’. Steadily and slowly sweep the mallet around the outside of lip of the bowl at a 45 degree angle, in an anti-clockwise direction. Use your whole arm for the action, not just the hand and wrist.

Slow down even further as the bowl starts to ‘sing’. If you’re getting a ‘chattering’ sound, the bowl is communicating… Slow down and breathe.

At the end of your meditation reverse the angle of the mallet to rotate clockwise, bringing the blessings out into the universe.
