Crystal Bowl & Flute Meditation Experience
Leave the world behind and flow like a theta wave… Quartz Crystal Bowl & Flute Meditation Experience. Cornell Kinderknecht with his flutes, joins Bryan Crusius and his Quartz Crystal Bowls in a mystical tonal alchemy. This is a serious and powerful meditation that leads you through a journey into slower brainwave states infused with the tones of quartz crystal bowls, the flowing lines of the flutes, and isochronic beats. Quartz crystal music holds the vibration of white light which ultimately refracts into the rainbow spectrum and acts directly on our chakras when the bowls are played.
