'Go not to the temple to put flowers upon the feet of God,

First fill your own house with the fragrance of love.

Go not to the temple to light candles before the altar of God,

First remove the darkness of sin from your heart.

Go not to the temple to bow down your head in prayer,

First learn to bow in humility before your fellowmen.

Go not to the temple to pray on bended knees,

First bend down to lift someone who is down trodden.

Go not to the temple to ask for forgiveness for your sins,

First forgive from your heart those who have sinned against you.'

 

~ Rabindranath Tagore


 

For those of you committed to the depths of The Work, this listing is for one of our therapeutic hand forged Mindfulness Bells. These green ritual colleagues assist you reclaim inner stillness, the grace of breath, perspective, clarity, and focus.

 

The Work always begins at home, within you, and your bodily temple space.

 

These stunning handcrafted instruments are forged with hand tools​, f​ired in a kiln​, and individually​​ tuned by a master bellmaker until the tone is clear and true. Each is finished with a copper patina which gives incredibly rich colours and textures that I can only describe as rainbow coloured moon craters (see close up photo for details in natural light)! This colour is reflected with the use of verdigris dye I made for use on the Nettle, Rose and Mugwort cordage that forms the woven handle on each bell. This cordage also wraps the contact area of each Sounder. This handcrafted two ply plant fiber cordage was made over the summer and autumn last year, braided over Samhain, and dip dyed in verdigris.

 

For those who nerd out on details, the braids are are made up of 7 strands (represents all seven directions) x 3 (represents the upper, middle and underworld as well as the past/present/future ascended Self) x2 (represents within/feminine/subconscious/passive aspect of the whole, and throughout/masculine/conscious/active aspect of the whole).

 

These bells are hand forged from old animal bells, something that I find entirely enchanting in itself. They each have such wonderful character ~ they look like they have a tale to tell...and they do!

 

Each of these bells has a beautiful range of natural colours, tones and textures. Bells relate with the Air element, the season of Spring, the direction of East and new beginnings. They're so very alive, fresh, rich, and lush, just like everything should be when one celebrates new beginnings. String, ribbons and fibers all traditionally relate with the Spring and the element of Air. Copper is a conductor of energy and relates with Venus/Air element, hence my use of verdigris, a pigment I made that is extracted from copper.


 

The Sounders even have the most beautiful lichens growing on them (more air element goodness as lichen relates with air). Anyone with a x10 or x20 field loupe will be in for a treat with these!

 

I love them, I really do, they're so pleasing to the eye, pleasant in the hand, easy on the ears, calming and clearing, and sound incredible too!
