Sandra has used singing bowls from The Ohm Store for several years in her chanting workshops and in Kirtan group singing. She's also written online essays for TOS and will soon be collaborating with Ohm Store owners, brother-and-sister team Frank and Nikki, on a live web presentation. TOS sources their bowls directly from artisans in Nepal, importing small batches in order to ensure quality and fair trade practices. Visit them at The Ohm Store!
