What is The Gong
It is an ancient instrument, dating back to the 6th century. It is a disk shaped percussion instrument that when struck with a mallet, vibrates and creates a rainbow of sound. Sound has long been forgotten for it’s healing potency in Western culture, but is now becoming recognised again for it’s place in complementary medicine.
When played skilfully, the rhythm soothes the nervous system and relaxes the brain. A huge spectrum of sound is created by the Gong, and as the layers of sound build they can actually be felt by those in a Gong Bath. These vibrations contain profound healing potential. In this relaxed state, energetic blockages are cleared and you may find yourself involuntarily twitching as everything starts to realign to it’s natural and harmonious state.
Sound baths typically last for around 45-75 minutes. During this time you will be transported to wherever it is you need to go. For those of you looking for an alternative to meditation or relaxation, then a Gong Bath will be a wonderful experience. As the body is bathed in sound-waves, the vibrational frequencies alter your state of being in a very real and tangible way. Some find the session deeply relaxing; others find it truly moving and that it brings about harmony and peace physiologically, spiritually and mentally. Each experience is totally unique to the individual…so come try it for yourself and see.
What To Bring?
When joining a Sound Bath, the most important thing is that you are totally comfortable. I would advise you bring a Yoga mat or something similar to lie on, a blanket to cover yourself with, one or two pillows for under your head and knees, and I suggest you wear comfortable clothing including socks for warmth and comfort. An eye bag is a nice addition, although not essential. Some people like to bring a journal to make a note of their personal experience for personal and spiritual development, too.
There are currently no upcoming events scheduled due to COVID19. I hope to be able to host one very soon, so do check back or sign up to my mailing list to stay in the know.
