An overtone is a frequency which is higher than the fundamental frequency of a sound. Most instruments, from a guitar string to a bell, will naturally vibrate at what is known as normal modes, a series of distinct frequencies. The lowest normal mode frequency is known as the fundamental frequency, while the higher frequencies are called overtones. You find overtones everywhere in nature.

Singing bowls are rich in overtone, which centre and harmonize on a holistic level. A person in harmony and centred is able to face daily challenges, increase the capacity of concentration, thereby increasing creativity and productivity.

People, who listen to overtones, describe to experience a deep relaxing effect and harmony. This harmony spreads out through the entire body, mind and the energy system, so that the flow of energy and the awareness of the mind increase.
