“The magic of “Musical Medicine” will come into its own. The application of such healing potencies will not be limited just to man’s body and mind. It will be an agency for building and healing his soul as well.” -
A gong bath or gong meditation is an incredible and unique experience that vibrates every single cell of your beautiful body and Self and rebalances your physical, emotional and spiritual bodies.
All you have to do is lay down comfortably on a mat with your head gently resting on a cushion, cover your delicious body with a soft blanket to keep warm and cosy, close your eyes and let the sound go right through you. Let the magic happen…
The sound vibrations produced by the gong induce theta and delta wave cycles in the brain. If you don’t speak brainwaves, Theta waves occur in REM sleep (vivid dreaming phase) and deep meditation. Your mind’s most deep-seated programs are at Theta and it is where you experience deep relaxation, stress and anxiety release, vivid visualizations, great inspiration, profound creativity and exceptional insight.
Delta waves occur during deep sleep and very deep transcendental meditation. It is the realm of the unconscious mind from which you can access information otherwise unavailable at the conscious level. This wave cycle is very important as it promotes healing and regeneration.
On a more experiential level, people who have received gong bath have reported:
An increase in creativity
Faster healing process
Deep feeling of love and compassion
Being pain free for longer periods of time
A sense of calm and inner peace
Sense of clarity in dealing with difficult situations and/or blockages
…and the list goes on…
The good news is you can benefit from gong meditation whether you meditate on a regular basis or not, or don’t even meditate at all.
All are welcome so come and join the Gong!
