A Gong meditation or a gong bath 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
Preparing the body, mind and soul
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 blissful journey
A Gong bath creates a blissful 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.
Relax, 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.

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.
