Event Description: A Gong Bath is a meditative and transformational experience, where the participant allows the sound and vibration of the gongs to wash over them, creating deep feelings of peace, relaxation and timelessness. The energy of the gong takes hold of the listener and moves them in wonderfully unexpected ways. Some participants have described it as an emotional cleansing, a spiritual alignment, or an energetic journey.
Multiple tuned gongs create complex harmonics, deep pulsing tones and beautifully rhythmic waves of sound. These tones remind the listener of deep space, distant voices, a caring heartbeat, or the songs of nature. Many listeners are surprised and moved by the types of sounds that are created.
In addition to the gongs, listeners may hear flute, didgeridoo, crystal bowls, chimes or harp. These will be used to relax the energy in-between gong sessions, and to ground the listener after the last gong has sounded. These interludes give the listener a chance to integrate the changes that have occurred.
Before the gong bath, the listeners will be guided through breathing exercises, physical movement and chanting. These prepare the listener for the experience by relaxing their body and stilling their mind, refining their ability to listen.
