ABOUT KARMA MOFFETT
Karma Moffett has developed, over a period of thirty five years, an exceptional program of music, which is presented to the community as a Wish-Bestowing Ceremony. He uses his unique collection of instruments, featuring antique Tibetan Bowls, Bells, Tingsha, Longhorn, and Conch Shells. He also plays instruments gathered from throughout the world, and some he has hand-made.
Patterning the ceremony as a symbolic journey to Tibet, Karma begins by playing Native American Flute, to fly the audience to the Tibetan Plateau. Then Karma plays the Tibetan Longhorn, escorting his audience into the monastery. There follows a journey through the Bowls, from the low tones to the high, using varying patterns, creating different harmonics amongst the attuned and paired sets of bowls. Next resound the higher notes of the Bells. The journey upwards culminates in the highest-pitched tones of the Tingsha and the Conch Shells resonating above. Gently, Karma reverses the pattern, back downward through the Bells and Bowls. At the end, he dissolves the movement of sound into the stillness of the Great Mystery.
It is becoming widely accepted that pure sound tones and harmonics have a positive and penetrating impact upon a person’s natural healing system. Karma has developed his collection of instruments and his ceremony with this understanding as his guide. When experiencing the ceremony in an intimate setting, one really feels the Longhorn and the Bowls move the energy of the lower chakras. The Bells move the heart and middle chakras. The Tingsha and Conch Shells stimulate the crown and higher chakras. Thus, the journey to the highlands is also a journey through the chakras.
