Gong Bath Evenings 2018
A Sound Relaxation Experience
The gong has been used for thousands of years to re-balance and tone the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. The sound of the gong, when played with sensitivity, is very powerful for relieving stress, for relaxation, fatigue and many other conditions in our busy lives, which can often lead to the lack of balance and harmony in the body.
When attending a gong-bath, you relax, fully clothed either on a comfortable mat on the floor or sitting, letting the sound bathe your body and carry the mind, as the sound gently washes over you. The session begins with sounds of singing bowls or a variety of instruments, and then the gong is gently invited to start sounding, gradually building the sound with a growing myriad of harmonics. Throughout the session there will be periods of other instruments and sounds, but the main focus is on the gongs. These then gently fade to a variety of more grounding sounds towards the end, when complete silence pervades allowing recipients to be in this profound, powerful stillness for a short time.
