GONG BATHS A gong is an agent of transformation. When the gong is played, the body, mind and spirit change. The wave-like movement of peaks and valleys in the gong’s sound carries the listener farther and farther on the journey, much like the swelling tides of the ocean, always returning and building again and again. The mind becomes entranced and stilled and a deeply meditative state is reached. The gong has the ability to quiet the mind, to halt it in its tracks, and to overcome its hold upon the consciousness. The gong fills the body with prana (life force). The gong is the creative sound of the Universe.
The gong heals the emotional body, the sound of the gong often brings about various emotional releases. At the moment of silence when the sound of the gong stops, the listener is given the experience of oneness in the stillness The gong reminds the listener that the source of their existence comes from the eternal soul. When the gong is played, these nadis/meridians/energy channels can be cleared and the listener experiences an increased flow of energy into areas that may have formerly been blocked. The gong then fills the body, chakras and meridians with prana (life force) which increases your overall vitality levels. In addition, the freer movement of prana through the nadis awakens, balances, and strengthens the energy of the chakra system.
As the gong is played with its wide range of complex frequency patterns, the chakras begin to come into a natural resonance. It is as if there were a million notes being played simultaneously, until the perfect melody is struck for each specific chakra.

"The Gong Bath has been an extraordinary experience for me, profoundly peaceful, loving, empowering and uplifting all at once. I am still feeling the gong's earthy vibrations pulsating through my body and mind. A beautiful moment shared with beautiful people." Dom
"Gong baths are exactly that - you are bathed in sound not water. You feel the effects from the top of your head right down to your fingers and your toes. It is relaxing and energising at one and the same time. Your whole body pulsates with the changing gong sounds. It is a unique experience and is strongly recommended." Robert
"It was healing for me, during the session I felt that the gong was clearing my body and my mind. It was fabulous, I felt sweetness and protection, too. That night I slept without any problem and the next day I felt relaxed." Erika
