~ Eleanor Borkowski, School Teacher, Middletown, CT.

"As a yoga instructor I feel it's important to create an atmosphere that is relaxing, safe, and meditative, and music plays a key role. Temple Sounds has assisted the student in exploring deeper levels of their yoga practice in both asanas (postures) and meditation."
~ Laurie Sabourin, Owner/Director of Facilitated Healing, Center for Yoga and Wellness, Cromwell, CT.

"Our customers love your Mystic Bowls recording! We sell more of these than any other similar CD. It's a perfect associated sale for our many customers who buy bowls themselves. And for many Reiki practitioners, meditators and yoga instructors who are looking for just this mystical sound abiance. Thank you!"
~ Unicorn Books and Spiritual Resource Center Inc. Arlington, MA.

"Subtle yet deeply insightful, it allows the chakra energy to clear, cleanse and renew. Subtle yet powerful journey of the soul."
~ Susane Grasso McCausland, Director of Complementary Medicine, Connecticut Hospice Inc., Branford CT.

"I thought this CD was so relaxing, that I felt that I was in my own Temple in Nepal amongst monks that were also enjoying the mystic journey that this great CD offers. My great thanks to the wonderful artists that put this beautiful "Bowl" music together, along with great art layout of the CD that rounds out the full experience of this temple music!
I highly recommend it for those nights to unwind and escape!"
~ Richard L. Dickerson, Johnston, RI.

"Excellent meditation music, Mystic Bowls is also a gorgeous listen. Ranging from gentle tinkling to high-tempo patters and hypnotic drones, these seven tracks were made entirely with metal bowls. The practice is a time-honored Eastern ritual; you'll get a feel for the ancient nature of the art as you listen."
~ Mike McGuirk

MYSTIC BOWLS by Emile de Leon (Temple Sounds).  This powerhouse duo's presentation of Tibetan singing bowls is no less than impressive. From the first track, "Awaken," I was seized by the players' sense of timing and knowledge of their instruments/ power.

Five years of work and many miles of travel went into this album, and the bowls they play were hand-selected from among more than 5,000.
From the deepest bass to the chimes of smaller bowls, the sounds draw listeners into a world without time, a dimension without form or limitations, a realm where all thought is possible but no thought is necessary.

This is truly amongst the best Tibetan bowl-toning I've heard. In its initial call to the spirits and communion with the divine force, the third track, "Calling Spirits," exhibits the artists' true knowledge of harmonic celebration.

Wow! - TJE

"Shaman Bowls," produced by Temple Sounds, takes the listener on a miraculous journey through time and deep into the Self. The artistic craftsmanship of this album reaches far beyond the common use of eclectic instruments and extended vocal techniques. "Shaman Bowls" weaves sound and space into a music that illuminates our spirit of oneness and releases us into the wonderment of timelessness as it flows through our physical being. The musical and spiritual achievements of this album are direct results of divine inspiration and years of devoted learning and performance/compositional mastery by these three extremely talented individuals---Emile de Leon, JT and Jim Cole.

In the hands of Emile de Leon, the mystical, otherworldly sounds of Tibetan singing bowls provide an atmosphere charged with healing energy and deep meditative potential. GODDESS BOWLS stands apart from the pack in the sheer range of bowls that de Leon has at his disposal--featured are special sets of Lingham, Mani, Jambati and Manipuri bowls, along with a unique and large-sized "Tantric Bowl" and the Tibetan gong. The result of such diverse source instrumentation is an incredibly rich soundscape of resonant tones that both provides a space that promotes mindfulness and helps one to develop a connection with the divine.

~ Music Design In Review
Emile de Leon is a master of playing the singing bowls. Or more specifically, of creating sounds and tones with the bowls that lifts you to another state of consciousness. On CELESTIAL BOWLS, de Leon utilizes 40 bowls whose pitches are in the higher ranges to create an atmosphere of mystery and spiritual bliss. The album is divided into six cuts which feature the bowls performed solo, both by striking motions and rubbing to create ambience. The acoustics are wonderful on the album, each strike sounding as if it is slipping away into eternity. The album provides a great accompaniment for meditation practice or chakra work.

~ Music Design In Review
Emile de Leon has a strong love for the Tibetan bowls, and with his many recordings he has sought to share the beauty and mystery of these harmonic devices with others. This album takes that goal a step further, not only providing an hour of contemplation-inducing bowl playing, but also offering guided meditations to help listeners explore bowls deeper. Disc one is the instrumental recording, which features de Leon playing the bowls with light striking motions and some rubbing. The Second disc is similar to the first, with the addition of De Leon narrating six meditations, including "Aura Meditation", "Chakra Meditation" and others. The bowls being played are of high quality, with great clarity and acoustics.

The Artist...

Emile de Leon is a professional musician, astrologer, photographer and owner of "Knight People" a metaphysical book store in Middletown, Connecticut.
The Instruments....

The Tibetan Singing Bowls, some, hundreds of years old, are instruments from another culture and era now being revived as tools for personal and group growth as well as healing on an individual as well as global scale.

These instruments produce sounds which are relaxing, meditative and cosmic. In a meditative sense, they can be gateways to other realms. In a healing sense, they can be used to unblock inharmonious vibrations in the Aura, and re-harmonize the body.
