Gong Meditation with Angela Blueskies

  • January 24, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Nourishing Journey

Of all the instruments used in sound healing, the Gong is perhaps the most powerful, and the most mysterious. Used in ancient Chinese palaces and temples, and also in the tradition of Kundalini Yoga, Gong Meditations, also called Gong Baths, are deeply nourishing and restorative. Similar to an extended savasana, the softer sounds are soothing on a deep level, and as the sound level builds, the body and energy are cleared in profound ways. Through the intense vibrations of the sound, the body and mind are able to relax and surrender to the healing energies of the Gong, and as the waves of sound wash over participants, a deep energetic clearing occurs, leaving the participant feeling balanced, peaceful, and light. Class led by Angela Blueskies.

Please bring meditation cushions, yoga mats, blankets, pillows or anything else you will need for the meditation!

 

Angela Blueskies is a Songkeeper, sound healer, and medicine woman. A lifelong musician, she received her training as a classical flutist at the prestigious Peabody Institute in Baltimore. In her performing career, she began to long for a deeper sense of connection and presence with her audiences. It was while travelling in South America that Angela first encountered traditions that worked with songs and music for healing and transformation. Deeply influenced by sacred ceremonies from Peru and the traditions of bhakti yoga and kirtan, she began to experiment with creating music for healing and meditation. Expanding beyond her background as a classical flutist, in her sound healing sessions, Angela also works with voice, toning, and mantra, as well as frame drum, rattles, flutes from around the world, singing bowls, and the gong. Her Sound Medicine Journeys are intuitively guided energy healing sessions that use song, music, and sound to bring clearing, balancing, and a higher vibration of peace and joy to all those present. In addition to her work with Sound Medicine Journeys, she also leads kirtan with several wonderful musicians in the Baltimore/Washington area, including her band Bhakti Tree.

    Is the Gong Meditation accompanied by Angela's chanting? How many gongs does she use? I used to go to a Gong Meditation in Taos with about 10 giant gongs. I noticed that on the East Coast things are done a bit differently. Thanks!

      Thanks not sure if I will come. I find the power of multiple gongs in raising vibrations to be compelling. Also I notice on the East Coast a lot of practitioners chant along with the gong which actually lowers the vibration. (Same with singing bowls).
