Open House and Sale: Singing Bowls and Didgeridoos
This is a FREE EVENT.

Saturday and Sunday, May 21-22, 1-5pm
3427 N. Colfax Ave.
Minneapolis, MN 55412
612-521-4308

We recently received a beautiful shipment of lovely handmade Himalayan singing bowls from Kathmandu. Come visit them and fall in love, at this weekend’s Open House.

Himalayan singing bowls are amazing sonic transducers, changing a small amount of kinetic energy into long-lasting beautiful sound energy. They can be used to make music, for meditating, and for healing. Some are deeply calming, some energizing, some magical and trance-inducing!

We want to share our singing bowls with you! Try them yourself, learn how to play and use these wonderful instruments, and have fun! And of course, you can fall in love with some bowls, buy them, and take them home with you.

So bring your friends, come over and visit us and our bowls, gongs, and excellent budget didgeridoos.

And as always, we’ll be offering great prices on all items!

“Amazing. Mind-blowing! I’d go again.”

“Quite an amazing experience. Too wonderful for words.”

“Thanks to BOTH of you for an amazing and elevating sound experience! Can’t wait for the next one!!”

“You were amazing last night… I was so fascinated by the instruments and playing techniques…”


Didgeridoo Lessons and Workshops

Do you suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea, or know someone who does? Medical studies in Australia also indicate that playing the didgeridoo may also help reduce asthma symptoms. Or maybe you’re interested in the Didgeridoo for making music, meditation, or Sound Healing? 

We offer private lessons by appt. and also Beginning Didgeridoo Workshops, usually twice a month on a weeknight and on a weekend afternoon. November dates are TBA soon.
