Gong Bath



“The gong is the first and last instrument for the human mind. It is 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-

Can't get enough of these hypnotic sounds!

The sounds of the gongs and singing bowls work on both physical and subtle energy realms. In physical where we can actually hear and are aware of the sounds and in subtle with complex frequencies that are beyond our human hearing.

​Space is created where nothing else exists except the sound, which envelope in a protective way around the listener like a soft blanket. When the physical plane becomes saturated with sound, a sense of dematerialization takes place causing the listener to enter a state where the body or the floor they are lying on can no longer be felt, a state where healing can happen much more easily and where all the aspects of our being, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual becomes super receptive and regenerating.   

The sounds have no fixed rhythm and the analytical and logical left side of the brain is not able to follow, allowing the right side, the creative and holistic part, or lower frequencies brainwaves states to take over. Depending on each individual different states can be accessed and experienced, from the conscious mind, the active beta brainwaves to alpha, the borderline between awake and asleep, a profound state of calm and relaxation, to the subconscious mind with theta waves and dreaming sleep and visionary states, to the unconscious mind with delta waves and deep sleep.

There are manifold benefits from being exposed to the tones of the gongs and singing bowls. The Gong Bath can help to reduce stress and create a better ability to cope with stress. It can bring a sense of familiarity with stillness and contentment, alter consciousness and create well being for better health.

The gongs and singing bowls have a deep cleansing effect and afterwards, you will probably feel lighter, clear-headed, calm and relaxed. Chances are that you will go to sleep during the session and remember only parts or very little of the experience. The body and mind welcome the opportunity to go into a deep sleep with delta brainwaves and this is a sign of the body needing a good rest. Whether conscious or not, the gongs will have done their work on all levels and you will probably wake up refreshed and re-energised.

The sounds revitalises the immune and nervous system and works on any organ or part which is not in harmony. A physically detoxing effect can happen because the sounds help to remove anything toxic or not good for us from the body. Throughout the session the mind may be busy with thoughts and this is normal. As part of the cleansing and clearing process, things we need to let go are brought up so we can allow them to float out. A sense of timelessness can happen and time seems to go very quickly.

Every Gong Bath is a unique and personal experience depending on where you are on your journey through life and the sounds produced are entirely right for that present moment.
