Gong Bath Events - Montly
Gong bath is a therapeutic application of sound frequencies for the purpose of healing and relaxation.
The gong is one of the most effective instruments for sound healing, it is the sound of total resonance, incorporating all tones and harmonics of the sound spectrum: those within hearing range and those beyond human hearing.
Gong master and Kundalini yoga teacher, Don Contreaux, who is in his 46th year of gong healing and teaching says, “The sounds from the gong travel from the outer ear throughout the body via the vagus nerve—impacting brain waves, respiratory rate and heart rate. Sound enters the healing equation from several directions: It may alter cellular functions through energetic effects; it may entrain biological systems to function more homeostatically; it may calm the mind and therefore the body; or it may have emotional effects, which influence neurotransmitters and neuropeptides, which in turn help to regulate the immune system—the healer within.”
This is an instrument of great power, which can shut down the mind chatter, taking us automatically into meditation. Using gong for sound healing, we are utilising the power of the original “OM” - the sound of The Universe.
The gongs used for the gong bath are Paiste Planet Gongs that are tuned to the orbit of a particular planet (Venus & Jupiter) as calculated by the astronomer Hans Cousto.
Venus: is connected with sensuality, love, abundance and completion
Jupiter: connected to trust, abundance, openness, affirming and expansion
