Sound Healing - Sound creates a magical journey for Body, Mind and Soul

Next Gong Bath Meditation: Friday 23rd November at 7.30pm

Gong Puja - a whole night of gong bathing - whoo hoo !! - Watch this space for dates - see below for more information

A Gong meditation is a magical journey for body, mind and soul. Both rejuvenating and cleansing. The Gong allows you to tune in on many conscious and unconscious levels. Emotions and thoughts are provoked from the subconscious. 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.

"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 happens at a gong bath?

2 hours of bliss 

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.

 

A magical journey

A Gong bath creates a magical journey for the body, mind and soul. Both rejuvenating and cleansing, the Gong will allow 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.

 

Release and restore 

Emotions and thoughts are released from the subconscious. 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.

A Gong Puja is a sacred ceremony in which the sound of the gongs is kept going during a full night. Players in a gong Puja take turns in playing, keeping all gongs going at a low frequency in a central structure called a “gong cage” or “gong pod”. Participants at the Puja lie down around this pod and during the night they enter a state of meditative sleep. The energy of the Gongs also helps us raise the vibratory level all around us, beyond the confines of the room through harmonic resonance.

The Gong is an instrument and healing tool for the nervous system. It can be a cauldron where a magical alchemy of frequencies and sound occur, which open our connection to our higher self. It is an instrument that takes us to the moment of creation of the universe with its complex harmonics. While the gongs play, there is a dome of sound which is beyond our usual perception in 3D. It creates a sacred space to experience and to bring us back to ourselves, generating an immediate effect of deep meditation and working at very subtle levels.

Yogi Bhajan, who brought Kundalini yoga and the art of the gong to the west, promoted 45 minute gong baths as a way of clearing any mental and physical blocks in our being. One of his early students and Grand Gongmaster, Don Conreaux, developed the gong Puja as 10 consecutive gong baths, or 7.5 hours of uninterrupted sound to bring healing and clarity to our souls.

There is no need to have any yoga or Gong experience to benefit from a Gong Puja, just bring an open mind. The experience of a Puja is very individual, but it can be a turning point or a moment of great clarity. The deep harmonics of the gongs which will be played may bring emotional and spiritual cleansing. 

NB: A Puja is a ritual ceremony a moment of devotional attention. The word, Puja, originally from the devangari language means reverence, homage or ceremony.

 

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.
