Gong Healing: A magical journey for Body, Mind and Soul

Soul Sound Healing Gong Baths: Group, Individual & Corporate sessions

Group Gong Bath Dates 2024

Above, I am proposing some shorter gong bath opportunities to relax, unwind and restore before the busy week starts again. A light physical warm up and breath work will reset your glandular system before the gong bath. Booking ahead and advance payment required.

FRIDAY 22 March 19:30 - 21:30
FULLY BOOKED

Spring Equinox Release & Recharge Kundalini & Soul Sound Gong Bath
MM81 Studio - 81 avenue de Tervuren - 1040 Brussels - Merode-Montgomery
Energy: 28€

AFFIRMATION: "I am releasing body and mind of both physical and emotional excess"

While we can’t always prevent stressful situations and harmful toxins from entering our systems, we can support the body’s natural detoxifying process through the practice of yoga and meditation.

Detoxification isn’t just about ridding the body of physical toxins. We can also help the mind to cleanse from emotional excess. Detoxifying is optimized when we incorporate both movement, pranayama, sound healing and relaxation. In this session we create a safe space for emotional letting go as well.

What to expect?

This session begins with a breath and body warm up based on the teachings of kundalini yoga, transformational breath work (praanayam), meditation and chanting sacred mantras.
By stretching and squeezing the muscles of the body, we will massage the organs, stimulate lymph and blood flow, enhance breathing, and invite release of blocked emotions. Our focus on the body and breath also help purge the mind of unnecessary thoughts.
No experience is required.

This divine alchemy will entrain the body, mind and Higher Self into deep meditation followed by a healing Soul Sound journey with the Gongs.

SUNDAY 10 March 18:30-20:30

SUPER NEW MOON Meditation & Soul Sound Gong Bath at Brussels Yoga Loft, 109 ch de Vleurgat

Energy: 35€

Spaces limited - please only book if you plan to attend.

"On this Super New Moon I connect with my human gift of Intuition and creative wisdom. I plant the seeds for my highest human fulfilment"

New Moons are auspicious moments to plant the seeds of intention. Co-Creation means alignment with your Highest Self and the Universe.

A free flowing Third Eye Chakra (otherwise known as Ajna in Sanskrit) will help us connect to our intuition and self awareness. It is also a good energy centre to re-balance if you experience sleeping difficulties, thyroid or hormonal imbalances. The Ajna is connected to the Pineal Gland (a tiny endocrine gland found in the brain) which secretes the hormone melatonin, a serotonin derived hormone which helps regulate the sleep and wake cycles.

What to expect?

We will practice sacred active meditations to balance the brain and the Pituitary Gland. We will crystallize our intentions with a long, relaxing gong bath.

"I give my mind permission from My Heart 💚💚  to receive …"

Making a date with Self and Soul.

February is associated with love, hearts and all things red.

Let’s go green instead and put this commercially driven date into the yogic context of relationships and love in life.

Did you know that by stimulating the heart meridian, we stimulate the seat of our spirituality and also the ruler of wisdom and good judgement… ? 

The accessible Kundalini Meditation session will include heart opening exercises that active the heart chakra and our ability to be less judgmental towards ourselves and others and therefore more compassionate.

We will shed layers and years of judgement and self-criticism and our practice will promote a more balanced, focussed neutral mind.

"When you are following dharma, you will be happy, at peace, still inside. There will be a sense of purpose to your life. Difficulties will not seem unconquerable."
- Dr Frederick LENZ, aka Rama, Author of American Buddhist Rebel


Humans often justify their fate by saying, "It's my bad karma". Well let's just clarify the yogic perspective on this. There is no good karma or bad karma. There is just karma. 

KARMIC BURDEN

It is easier to blame karma and use the excuse of past life experiences for not focussing on the present. The yogic perspective however, is that we can clear our karmic burden so that we can live as fulfilled humans, and, so we can reincarnate without the burden of karma of this lifetime. Through our actions, karma lessens with each incarnation. When we live truly karma free, we are on the path of Dharma.
Dharma - your unique vibration
Dharma means Divine Law or Universal Truth. Our mission in this lifetime is to equalize Karma in order to walk the Path of Dharma. Dharma is an ancient Sanskrit word that refers to your soul's purpose - the big reason why you are here. Your dharma is not a career or a project or a certain role you play. It's the unique vibration that your soul carries to everything that you do and every way that you are. Wahay Guru!

When you live your Dharma - and you might have had glimpses of it - you can experience feelings of satisfaction with the way you are expressing and sharing your unique gifts and you know you are touching the lives you are meant to touch. 

Meditation and Sound Healing allows our Soul to manifest. We put judgement aside, we use our will to concentrate and this opens the path for our Soul to manifest. Tune into your soul and release the burden of karma with December's sound healing event on Friday 8th December for a Karma Release Meditation followed by a Karma release gong bath. 

 

EVENTS INFORMATION

Each Gong Session begins with a Kundalini breath and body warm up, transformational breath work (praanayam), meditation and chanting sacred mantras.

This divine alchemy will entrain the body, mind and Higher Self into deep meditation followed by a healing Soul Sound journey with the Gongs to connect, transform, heal and rejuvenate our physical and emotional bodies thereby promoting an optimal state of wellbeing.

 

What will I experience during a Gong Bath?

A Gong bath is intensely individual. It creates a magical journey for the body, mind and soul. Both rejuvenating and cleansing, the Gong allows your body to naturally tune in and create a resonance with the sound. Energetically, emotionally, spiritually, and physically, it will penetrate every cell and fibre of your body. Indeed, the Gong allows you to tune in on many conscious and unconscious levels.

Emotions and thoughts are released from the subconscious for processing. The Parasympathetic nervous system is ruled by sound. And it regulates the over-worked and over triggered Sympathetic nervous system. Sound is therefore one of the most important healing media that there is.

PRACTICAL INFORMATION

Booking ahead advised. 

No experience is required but an open mind and heart will enhance your experience.

Please arrive in advance: doors open 20 minutes before session starts; doors close at start time.

Bring a mat and a sleeping bag, blanket, cushion for more comfort; some equipment available on site.

"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




What is a Gong bath?

The 2 hour session is led by Fiona Crossley (Nav Jiwan), IKYTA Certified Teacher and Gong Master. It includes Kundalini Yoga and breath work (praanayam) to warm and prepare body, mind and soul for deep meditation and relaxation with the Gong.

Planet Gongs

The mind has no power over a well played gong

Planet Gongs are tuned based on the orbital properties of the Earth, the Moon, the Sun, and the Planets according to calculations of Hans Cousto. Thus they resonate in harmony with the cycles of the celestial bodies and communicate a distinct aspect of the “music of the spheres” quoted since the Antique. 

Their sound colour is extremely mysterious and conveys an unusual, unfathomable atmosphere.  Soul Sound Yoga uses Paiste Sun and Day Sidereal gongs as well as guest gongs each with their own individual properties.
