Published: Wednesday, July 24, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

CRYSTAL LAKE – Explore a peaceful state of mind and body using ancient Tibetan singing bowls in calming, restorative classes offered by McHenry County College’s Continuing Education Department. 

In the “Tibetan Singing Bowls: Ancient Instrument of Healing and Peace” class, participants can enjoy a hands-on experience of the sound and vibration of the bowls and learn why they have become internationally recognized as potent tools for healing.

Participants also will be treated to a restorative sound massage.

Those who like to lie down (recommended) should bring a mat, blanket, pillows and a bottle of water. Or participants may sit in a chair if they prefer.

The class will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Aug. 9 in Room C106 of the college, 8900 Route 14.

The cost is $20. Use course ID: NHE S02 008 when registering. 

For an interactive sound experience, the “Tibetan Singing Bowls: Healing Sound Circle” class allows participants to sit on chairs in a circle, learn to play the Tibetan singing bowls and learn “sounding.”

The sound/vibration of the bowls and one’s voice creates an inner vibration that enhances the body’s natural healing ability.

Participants should bring a bottle of water to class.

The class will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Aug. 16 in Room C106.

The cost is $20. Use course ID: NHE S03 008 when registering.

To register, call the MCC Registration Office at 815-455-8588. For information, call Tracy Berry at 815-455-8758 or Claudia Terrones at 815-455-8782.
