Since listening is a key to this experience it is essential to have a quiet container for our journey together. Please do not attend if you have a cough or persistent sniffles. Also for this reason, this event would not be a good fit for children under 12.
WHY Sound Healing/Sound Bath Meditation?
Sound healing brings one into a deeply relaxed, meditative state.. an often dream-like ethereal trance state in which stress and anxiety melt away from all levels of your being. Harmony, health & higher states of consciousness flow in, allowing healing, deep peace and well-being to occur on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels.
Physically, sound healing works through the nervous system of your body, traveling through the liquid of your cells, and increasing the output of dopamine and serotonin. it is a simple yet profound way to practice self-care.
Large high quality gongs have such a huge range of tones, overtones and harmonics, that when played well, they literally bathe every cell of the recipient in sound, and help to bring the person back into a state of harmony and wellbeing. They also work on the subtle energy body, clearing blockages and old stagnant energy, so that the recipient can move forward freely.
Most people “come back” from their gongbath journey feeling refreshed, de-stressed and rejuvenated. Some physical aches and pains may have disappeared. Emotions are calmer, and people generally feel more in control of things, and often have been “given” solutions to problems that have been worrying them. People usually feel tingly and as though the gong sound is still working on them, which of course it is – the effect is generally ongoing for several days or even weeks. The gong sounds clear away any energetic debris from the subtle energy body and leave people feeling clear, light and re-energized. Re-tuned, as their whole system has been powerfully vibrated and brought back into a state of harmony.
