Want to heal, relax, and release tensions and worries? Come experience the power and mystery of 10 Nights of Gong Immersion – recommended by Yogi Bhajan as a cure for what ails you. The symphonic sound of the gong suspends the mind’s thought patterns, reduces stress, and promotes physical and mental healing by stimulating the glandular system and facilitating the break up of emotional blockages.
We’ll kick things off on July 21st with a beautiful 31-minute group Kundalini Meditation to open up to healing (7:30 pm), and a vegetarian potluck social (8:15 pm). Meditate, get social, eat, and relax in the blissful vibes of the gong!
After that, join us nightly at 9:15 pm for a 45 minute gong relaxation. Rest on your back or in a restorative posture, and immerse yourself in the healing vibrations of this powerful instrument.
Note: It is recommended to attend all 10 nights for optimal effect. However, if you are able to drop in, please do so. One gong bath is better than none. Ten in a row – amazing!

Why 10 Nights of Gong?
Here is a bit of history of the 10 x 45 minute gong immersion from a student of Yogi Bhajan’s, Gong Master Don Conreaux:
“It was in 1972 while in my 2nd year as founding director of the Nanak Dwara Teacher Training Ashram in Phoenix Arizona that Yogi Bhajan asked me to take care of his older son Rambir while he was going to high school in Phoenix.
Yogiji then told me that Rambir wouldn’t talk when he was a young child. So, he gave him a 45-minute full out gonging, and then happily afterwards he would never stop talking.
Yogiji then confided to me that a minimum of ten 45-minute full gong tone immersions in a row could cure practically anything. In the short nights of mid-summer 10 continuous full 45-minute Gong bath immersions [allow our] innate consciousness to be super-conducting while the ego is in suspension.”
