Ryan Sarnataro has been playing, collecting and selling old singing bowls since the 1980s. Over those decades he has gained a tremendous amount of experience from seeing and ringing hundreds of thousands of individual bowls in Nepal, India and Tibet. Son of a professional musician with perfect pitch, Ryan from a young age developed extraordinary sensitivity to sound. This has been applied to hearing deeply into singing bowl soundscapes to detect the subtle harmonies that define the highest quality bowls. Ryan’s interest in these subtle harmonies motivated him to find and develop unique precision mallets and ringers to bring the most out of singing bowls. Ryan has founded and grown a number of businesses in natural products, the healing arts and green energy. He blends the rigor of best business practices with the playful intuitive nature of singing bowls -which in his life transitioned from a compelling hobby to a business with thousands of customers in dozens of countries.
