This petite chime has a powerful tone. One tap can call a room to order.
We live in a vast ocean of sound. But what is the sound made by a single drop of water? Just a gentle tap with the mallet and the chime emits a powerful tone of singular beauty that lasts and lasts.
Sounds like this are often used in meditation and healing, because they help us to focus and redirect our attention to the sounds within. The resonating sound not only calms and refocuses the individual, but can also focus a group. As such, it's an effective way to start a class, meeting, yoga practice or call guests to dinner.
For best results, play the chime quietly, being careful not to dampen the sound by letting the mallet rest on the rod after striking it. Then take a deep breath and listen. Relax. Refocus. Reenergize.
