For instance, she said she recently did a session for a group of middle school students in Lexington who are learning ways to meditate and relax. After the session she said one of the students who had an injured leg reported less pain walking. She said when playing the bowls she intends for the vibrations to nd the areas in each person that are in an imbalance or disharmony. “It’s almost like a little seek and destroy mission, like hot spots,” she said. “That’s what I envision as I’m playing the bowls, is that they’re just going out and nding those areas, whether it’s physical or emotional—it can be very emotional.” Conroy said after a class people might cry because the time out can bring up past memories or trauma, but also can bring up creativity. “I tell people, something unpleas- ant does come up, just look at it as an opportunity to clear it, because that’s why it’s coming up, it’s giving you that opportunity to release some of it,” she said.

Conroy said she has been referred to as the Led Zeppelin of bowls, playing them intensely. “Everybody plays them dierently, and that’s ne,” she said. “The way I play them isn’t for everybody, either. Not only are they healing and balanc- ing and relaxing and all that, but my main mission and sharing them is to take people to that deep meditative state, to that space where it’s just like, this little chatter just goes away, and you’re just left in this quiet, and it’s an amazing place to be in.
