Atma Buti is a Sanskrit word and that translates to Soul Medicine. Atma means "Soul" and "Buti" comes from the word "JadiButi" which means Herbal Medicine. We came up with this beautiful name because we believe our special healing bowls and the knowledge we provide are a form of medicine that can be used to heal our body, mind and soul. At Atma Buti, Suren Shrestha is always dedicated to sharing his knowledge, experiences and stories of singing bowls' vibrational healing modalities. Suren Shrestha is originally from Nepal and he grew up with Singing Bowls since his childhood.
Suren started his journey with the singing bowls since in 1999 and with Singing Bowl Sound Healing in 2003. Suren wished to share his knowledge of the singing bowl's healing art that he learned from several different teachers in Asia and Nepal. He decided to write a book about it in 2009, published the book "How to Heal with Singing Bowls". This book has become one of a great teaching references & tools for several other Sound Healing Schools around USA and worldwide. The book has already been translated into Korean, Japanese, and Italian languages so far and there are many more to come. Financial proceeds from the sale of this book and a percentage of his teaching goes directly to our Orphanage Projects in Nepal that provide quality education to financially disadvantaged youth of Nepal. Atma Buti prides itself as being a sound healing school with a purpose. Learning with us you will not only gain knowledge, but will have the opportunity to earn 36 CEU’s credit from the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) and you can also feel fulfilled as you will be making a difference in someone's life supporting our orphanage project! Atma Buti Sound and Vibrational School is also accredited by the State of Colorado - Department of Higher Education Board.
People come to Atma Buti to learn how to incorporate their present expertise with sound healing modalities to compliment their current profession. Students from all around the world with different professions including medical doctors, veterinarians, nurses, physical therapists, massage therapists, psychotherapists, yoga instructors, reiki masters, musicians, sound Healers, chiropractors and more come to learn from Suren how to heal people or animals using the singing bowls. Even people without any healing background come to learn about the healing properties of the singing bowls. While these students come to learn up about sound healing, they often learn much more and may even end up healing their own lives. Our students help each other to heal themselves and that is why our teaching is done through sharing the knowledge. At Atma Buti, students will get an opportunity to learn in a small group, which allows direct and smooth interaction between the students and the teacher. Hands-on practice with proper guidance allows students to understand the correct use of healing bowls. The Atma Buti International Sound & Vibration School is continuously working to empower our students to spread the healing sound of the singing bowls all around the world.
The students of the Atma Buti International Sound & Vibrational School are making a difference in this world! We are so proud of the accomplishments that many students are making in their work, business, homes and families. While one success story of a student of Suren's was on the Dr. Oz show, others are very successful establishing their own sound healing-related services and promoting the healing power of sound in their community in various ways. The use of the singing bowls is a dying art in Nepal, but here in the Western world our students are spreading this modality to hospitals, spas, yoga studios, massage centers and more.
The Atma Buti Tribe is quickly growing. We attribute this strong bond to the fact that we treat our students as our own friends and family members. We strive for a long lasting relationship with our students. Together, we all can grow wiser and help people around the world, who are in need of this healing art. It is because of this deep bond between the school and dedicated friends and students that the "Atma Buti Annual Retreat" has become possible. The annual retreat in Estes Park is a special annual event, where students, teachers and Atma Buti staff spend their time together learning and expanding the knowledge. This past years retreat was titled, “Seeking Soul Medicine”.
Our bowls are from all around Asia, but mainly from Nepal made by the Nepali Shakya Clans. The Nepali Shakya Clans have been making high-quality bowls for generations and we are very happy to support them. Their bowls are hand hammered with love and infused with the sound of chanting to traditional mantras. This tradition makes the bowls that we use at Atma Buti for healing very special and unique. In Nepal, the Shrestha and the Shakya lineage fall into the same caste system, also known as "Newar". Siddhartha Gautam Buddha is also known as "Shakyamuni". There is a very special bond between Suren, the bowl makers and the bowls. It is no wonder that Suren is happy to teach how to use them as a healing tool via Atma Buti.
