This wonderful Zenergy meditation duo chime is made from a genuine hardwood with a light cherry wood finish and has two silver polished aluminium rods in the centre. It comes supplied with a mallet to use on the chime. Tibetan monks use small cymbals called tingsha, which are sounded to mark the beginning and end of a period of meditation. You can use your Zenergy Meditation Chime in the same way. The two rods are purposely tuned to almost the same pitch. When both are struck at the same time, an acoustic phenomenon known as “beating” is produced. The rods will seem to ring with the same pitch, but you will notice a distinct pulsation or rhythm, in this case of approximately twelve beats per second. 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. For best results, play the Zenergy meditation 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, and re-energise with these wonderful vibrations. This Zenergy meditation duo chime is approximately 18cm long.
