Like Mindfulness Bell Volume 1, Mindfulness Bell Volume 2 is a powerful meditation tool that was created for people who want to practice mindfulness meditation. It features the sound of a specially selected
meditation bell that is played at periodic intervals to help clear your mind and guide you
into a deep state of meditation.
This second edition uses a larger Tibetan Singing Bowl with a deeper, richer sound that rings out for a much longer time. This is an ideal recording for those who have used Mindfulness Bell Volume 1 for at least a few weeks and would like to "graduate" to a deeper meditation experience with longer periods of silence to enjoy.
This high quality mp3 download includes a 60 minute version for
formal meditation practice, and also a separate "5 Minute Mindfulness"
recording that's perfect for those times when you just want to clear
away mental clutter and get on with your day.

This recording contains nothing but the pure sound of a Tibetan singing bowl being repeatedly struck with a soft mallet.
Each time the bowl is struck, it rings for about 1 minute and 45 seconds. Yes - the singing bowl we used for Mindfulness Bell Volume 2 is quite large and it has an incredible sustain.
During the first 10 minutes of this meditation, the sound
never completely fades away; the bowl is struck again before it fades to
silence.This is your settling in period.
Slowly but surely the gap between each strike is increased, allowing you to gradually experience longer and longer moments of complete silence. As time goes by, the bowl is also struck a little more softly, resulting in a more mellow sound.
By the 15 minute mark, silent spaces of around 20 seconds have opened up between each bowl strike. By the 30 minute mark, these silent spaces have increased to 45 seconds.
If you choose to continue meditating for more than 30 minutes, these silent spaces continue to increase in duration, from one minute to just over two minutes towards the end of the hour.
In this way, Mindfulness Bell Volume 2 trains you to become more and more comfortable with the sound of silence, and more and more capable of achieving mental stillness on your own.
So what is your role to play in all of this? Just sit quietly and
listen. If your mind wanders, simply return your attention to the sound
of the bell - your reliable anchor to the present moment.
The calming sound of the bell is your focal point for meditation. Simply absorb your attention in the sound of the mindfulness bell. No mantra is required, no special breathing techniques are needed, just let your awareness be consumed by the sound of the bell.
Your mind will become clearer and more calm with each and every bell strike, and as the bells fade into silence, your mind is given the opportunity to experience a very natural state of stillness.
This bell actually encourages your mind to become still and silent, but alert. This is mindfulness training at its best!
For General Relaxation
While this recording was designed as a meditation aid, you can still listen to this recording for general relaxation purposes. Lying down while listening may help you to drift off to sleep. Playing the recording while you are performing simple tasks at home will also imbue your surroundings with a gentle, calming atmosphere.
No matter how you choose to use this recording, please be sure to play it at a quiet, comfortable volume.
After recording Mindfulness Bell Volume 1, two years passed before I found the perfect bell for Volume 2. Just for fun, I decided to call this bell "Emily".
Meet "Emily", the star of Mindfulness Bell Volume 2.
|Emily is almost one foot wide and she weighs over 6 pounds. She is deep and complex creature with an exceptionally resonant, healing voice. Emily is the star of Mindfulness Bell Volume 2 and she just loves being the centre of attention.|
Emily is a magnificent Tibetan Singing Bowl. Her two most prominent tones oscillate with a low
delta frequency of 0.7 Hertz, and a delta frequency of 4.5 Hertz. (You
can hear these oscillations pulsing away in the audio sample). Higher harmonics also pulse with frequencies of 3.6 and 2.1 Hertz. Much like
the effect of binaural beats,
this cluster of delta frequencies are deeply relaxing and can actually help to guide
your brainwave activity into a state of deep meditation. Emily's higher harmonics add a metallic tinge to her sound, adding complexity and richness to her voice.
I have many antique singing bowls in my collection, but Emily is quite young. She happens to be one of the highest quality modern hand-beaten singing bowls in the world.
Twenty years of research and development has been invested in refining the shape, thickness, and metal combination to create beautiful bowls like Emily. The tone of a premium sound bowl like this is very pure and incredibly long lasting. As a bronze signing bowl, this bowl is comprised mainly of copper and tin but also contains a fusion of the seven metals and components of a genuine 400 year old antique bowl. These sacred elements are imbued into the metal alloy enhancing their vibrational effects when used in a therapeutic context or during a meditation ritual. Additionally, the bowls are hammered to perfection to create evenness in the shape for smoothness and quality of tone. After the hammering process the bowls are massaged to bring out the golden hues and the radiant colours of the metals.
