Julian Rixon - Tibetan Singing Bowl Therapist

Mastering your mind and thoughts with ancient sound.


Julian holds a MA degree in Ethnomusicology (anthropology with a musical bias) and travelled to Nepal in 2011 where he studied the bowls in Kathmandu. He trained in the traditions of the Kopan monastery with a Tibetan teacher who is an experienced and well-respected practitioner. His anthropological training helps him understand the background to this art and deliver it in an authentic and complementary manner.

He combines this traditional approach with more mainstream stress relief and visualization techniques. Julian has also undertaken the entire Tony Robbins Mastery Program and uses some Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques to assist his practice. He is also FETAC level 6 qualified as a motivational coach. The combination of a traditional and cutting-edge approach helps people achieve a deep level of relaxation to access their own healing potential. He is a great believer in the power of the mind and the need to remind ourselves how to let go, relax, and access resourceful states.

As a trained musician of 25 years Julian is able to work with the energy systems of the body in a sympathetic manner and flows with the energy as if it were a performance. A small part of this therapy relies on intuitive techniques.

Julian now works mainly with adults. He has also worked in a special school with children with general learning difficulties and on the autism spectrum since 2009. He finds this work extremely rewarding. The response of these very special children first led him into working with Tibetan singing bowls in a more in-depth way.

There are many ways to spread the benefits of this deep relaxation technique. Some of those are through group meditations and individual sessions using patterns of singing bowl sounds. You can find out more on the relevant pages of this website.

He has studied Yoga since his early 20s and is interested in its primary function as a tool for meditation. The meditations are also available as digital downloads in the online shop.

"I found the entire experience intriguing and very relaxing. The sound of the bowls is

beautiful and really does sound like singing with its harmonic echoes."
