Gong Sound Bath

The Gong is a sacred and ancient instrument which has been used for thousands of years for deep healing, rejuvenation and transformation.

Physically, the resonance produced releases tension and blocks in the body, stimulates the glandular system and helps balance the nervous system. Mentally, the sound of the Gong helps clean out the subconscious mind, rewriting old patterns, slows down brain waves, and aids in reaching Shuniya – a place of stillness within ourselves where we can access our innate wisdom.

Playing the Gong after Kundalini Yoga is especially beneficial as the body is even more receptive to the healing vibrations it carries. The whole cellular system can be regenerated at a very deep level which can be profoundly restorative, a perfect antidote to today’s stressful lifestyles.

“The Gong is the first and last instrument for the human mind, there is only one thing that can supersede and command the human mind, the sound of the Gong. It is the first sound in the universe, the sound that created this universe. It’s the basic creative sound. To the mind, the sound of the gong is like a mother and father that gave it birth. The mind has no power to resist a gong that is well played.” Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga

During the session, we will practise a simple Kriya to stretch, energise and prepare the body, followed by a meditation to clear and quieten the mind. There will be a short relaxation then the Gong will be played.

You should wear loose, comfortable clothing which is easy to move and stretch in, and bring water to drink. Mats and blankets will be supplied. Please note that Gong baths are not recommended during pregnancy.

Honouring The Winter Soltice

This Winter Solstice is a time when the sun stands still and we teeter on the brink of a new year, from darkness into a gradually awakening light as we welcome in the slow return of the sun and lengthening days. While still deep in the quiet of our personal hibernations, embracing the teachings that come from our natural world, we come together to honour our journey of the year and plant into our consciousness the seeds that will gradually emerge and bear fruit for the new year ahead. This process is supported with various practices including Yoga, Nidra, Free movement, Music, Reflection, Life Coaching and Meditation. A welcome opportunity to take a breather from all the busy-ness of the season and connect with our deeper selves as we give thanks for all the gifts we have received, let go and open our hearts to receive the blessings of what is to come.

  • Teacher: Sian Lalita Alcock
  • Date: Saturday 21st December, 10.00-1.00pm
  • Cost: £30.00
