Air Ceremony with Peruvian Whistling Vessels and Gongs

The Sacred Peruvian Whistling Vessels are possibly the oldest biofeedback device known to man. Combining breath, intention, and the vibration created when 8 of these vessels are blown at once is a very magical and interesting experience. 

“Consider the sound of the hummingbird as it flies or hovers overhead; a low pulsating flutter, as if a large night butterfly – drawn to a light – beat its powdered wings against the glass. The hummingbird’s sound is unique in nature, but – interestingly – the Chimu knew how to reproduce it. Following a tradition that had existed for more than a thousand years, Chimu potters fashioned ingenious ceramic bottles that whistle when you blow into them, and when played in concert, create a sound that is most succinctly described as the low fluttering sound of a hummingbird in flight. ” 
-- Daniel Statnekov

We will have a set of 8 of the vessels made from the molds Daniel Statnekov created and one that is very old. The experience is amazing and seems to be different for everyone. Some people prefer to blow the whistles and some prefer to sit or lay and bath in the vibrations. Please arrive early if you feel called to blow the whistle for 30-45 minutes. 

The whistling vessels create a “beat frequency” which elevates consciousness and enhances body functions. When you blow a set of them tuned to similar frequencies, they create binaural beats. Binaural beats are used to balance the left and right hemispheres of the brain while creating a wonderful sense of well-being.

As the whistling vessel portion of the ceremony comes to an end, we will have some time for silent meditation, and a Gong Bath by Brian Dickinson.
