A gong bath is a type of inactive meditation, where you lie down and ‘bathe’ in the healing vibrations of sound.
Sound therapy initiates the body’s innate capacities for self-healing. The sound waves entrain the brain waves into the patterns associated with relaxation, meditation, creativity and even the release of feel good hormones resulting in pain relief.
You will start the session in a seated position for a simple breathwork and meditation practice for around 15-20 minutes to begin the process of getting out of our heads, into our bodies and relaxing. Then you will lie down if this is comfortable for you (relevant adjustments can be made) while I facilitate a sound experience. Easing you in gently with the crystal bowl and tongue drum, the main set will then be with the gong, alternating between gentle strokes and more dynamic, immersive playing, finishing with some soothing chimes to gently bring you back and a long silence to give time for your body and psyche to integrate the experience.
What is special about group sound experiences is that each individual will receive their personal medicine. While one person will feel the sound vibrating very physically in places in their body, another will go off on a journey. There is no right or wrong way. Let go of all expectations and welcome all possibilities.
