Join Amardeep for a Gong Bath to clear away stagnant energies and rejuvenate your system. Meditate or lie down to merge with the Sacred Sounds of magnificent Gongs.
Sound is one of the oldest and most natural forms of relaxation and healing, documented and practiced in ancient civilizations, tribes and clinics around the world for over 40,000 years. Gongs, in particular, with their wide range of frequencies, tones and harmonies, are one of the most powerful healing instruments.
The benefits of Gong Baths include (also known as ‘sound meditation’ or ‘sound healing’):
- A state of deep relaxation, to calm the mind and release tension
- Decreased stress and anxiety levels
- Improved sleep
- Increased clarity of mind, awareness and insight
- Reactivation of dis-eased cells and parts of the body
- Quicker recovery from illnesses, wounds, and invasive medical treatments
- Enhanced concentration and creativity
- Removal of blocks and toxins
- Improved sense of hearing
- Awakening to higher states of consciousness, and a deeper connection with your true self
The sounds and vibrations in a Gong Bath lower your brainwaves, often inducing a state of deep meditation and relaxation (alpha). Some may enter an even deeper state, where visions, creative and spiritual awareness and insight are possible too (theta). You may drift deeper into a sleep state (delta), and that’s perfectly fine. We’ll begin with some chanting of Om (AUM) to prime the body as a Gong, and then immerse ourselves in 62-minute Gong Bath and have some time for silent meditation afterward. Ahhhhh.
Please arrive early to avoid disruption to those in relaxed states. Thank you.
“Gong is not a musical instrument. Gong is God.” – Yogi Bhajan
“You are a Gong. I am a Gong.” – Grand Gong Master Don Conreaux
