New Moon Gong Bath & Meditation, Forest Hill
Friday Dec 11th, 8-9pm, £15
Please note: Doors will be locked at 8.15pm so please arrive early
Come & relax by submerging yourself in the healing & transformative sounds of the Gong, followed by a meditation for the New Moon
How the Gong Works: The Vibrations take you to a space of deep relaxation, stimulates the glandular system & repairs the nervous system. On a mental level it helps clear old habit patterns, emotional issues, stress & trauma. Disease first manifests from imbalances in our energetic body before entering the physical, so if we can clear imbalances & blockages, we can lead more healthy, joyful & harmonious lives. More details here.
We will do a few simple stretches/breathing, lay down, relax and allow the Gong to clear and realign your energy, then a meditation (11 mins).
As a participant in a gong bath you lie on your mat with a shawl or blanket to keep you warm and something to cover your eyes. You are in a cocoon. With nothing to distract you, the inevitable will happen. All your old “stuff”, your junk, your habitual patterns of thought, your traumas, anything that irritates you or causes you to be anxious will rise to the surface of your mind and demand your attention. In meditation, you would normally just watch these thought forms arise and let them pass. But not in a gong bath. The sound waves emanting from the gong when it is struck move forwards and rush to meet with your thoughts –and this is where the magic happens: the waves meet your junk and the junk proves to be the weaker force and disintegrates and melts away. Whereas meditation is surrendering to your thoughts, taking part in a gong bath is meeting your fears head-on and seeing them fall apart, wave after wave.But a gong bath is not only for heavy-duty emotional clearing. It’s also just as good for giving you an extra energy boost or for those of you who would like to experience a raw, pure sound in the making.Heidi
