Dear Gong Friends,
Welcome to the Gong Space.
A Gong Bath is a form of Sound Healing where the gong is played to create a variety of benefits including relaxation, meditative states, harmony and balance, enhanced creativity, and general well being.
The gong bath session is 75 minutes and includes a guided meditation, reiki energy, and an immersion in the vibrational field and sonic universe of 4 Gongs and related sound healing instruments including himalayan singing bowls, a shruti box, the voice, bells, a rain stick, a frame drum, a Koshi, a croaking frog güiro, shakers and leaf rattles. There is herbal tea available before the session, and a grounding food (Gluten Free and Vegan) is shared at the end of the session for grounding.
The intention for this session is to honour energies of the Waning Gibbous Moon. The Waning Gibbous Moon is the first phase after the Full Moon, meaning the moon is decreasing in size towards the New Moon. As the illumination of the moon decreases in size, it gives us the perfect moment to focus on letting go of what no longer serves us - negative habbits, thoughs, patterns, behaviours. I invite you to reflect on what you would like to let go, bring it as an intention for the session, and ask for guidance and revelation.

-a bottle of water (although there is access to water). You may get thirsty.
