Gong Puja Brussels 15 October 2022 Brussels - ALL night gong Ceremony

Sleep, Dream and Meditate on a journey of healing and enlightenment.


You are invited to a Night of Sound Meditation in Brussels. A unique experience in a sacred location to connect with Soul and Source. An entire night to be blissfully soothed in a gentle Gong Bath while you Sleep, Dream and Meditate the night away. You shall be accompanied by a team of magical gongs and players on a intensely unique and individual journey of healing and enlightenment.

What is a Gong Puja?

A Gong Ceremony or Puja is a sacred ceremony in which the sound of the gongs resonate for a full night. The Gong players keep the gongs at a low frequency in a central structure called a “gong pod”. Participants lie down around this pod and during the night they enter a state of deep meditative sleep. Our intention is that the energy of the Gongs helps to raise the vibratory level within us and all around us, beyond the confines of the room through harmonic resonance.

More than an instrument

The Gong is an instrument and healing tool for the nervous system. It can produce a unique alchemy of frequencies and sound, which open our connection to our higher self. It can be described as entering the infinite dimension of Self  - beyond time and space - a place of expansion.  It creates a sacred space, bringing us back to our original Self, generating deep meditation and working at very subtle levels.

Clearing, Releasing Mind and Body

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 Gong Master, 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.

Moments of Clarity

There is no need to have any yoga or Gong experience to benefit from a Gong Puja*. You will be encouraged to consciously surrender to what is already within you. 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 may bring emotional and spiritual cleansing. 

*A Puja is a ritual ceremony a moment of devotional attention. The word, Puja, means reverence, homage or ceremony. 

"I want to let you know that the Gong Puja was a strong and wonderful experience for me and it balanced me completely on all levels. I am so thankful to you for making this event possible. I am definitely looking forward to the coming Puja, I've already sent my request for registration :-) » Christiana, a participant at a previous Gong Puja:

Frequently Asked Questions

Can anyone participate?

What type of mattress can I bring?


Our recommendation is 14 years or older. It should be on their request and not because you think it's a good idea. 

Will I sleep during the night?

Again this is individual. Some people sleep from beginning to end. Most people will enter into a state of Nidra or restorative sleep for most of the night and alternate with deeper Delta or Theta states of sleep.

Can I get up during the night?

Absolutely! You are free to get up, use the WC, meditate next to the gongs, take a break. The essential thing is to preserve the silence in the Ceremony room so that people can remain in total rest.

What if…?

There will always be someone awake and holding the space who is at your service if you have something that you need to ask.

It is a personal choice but we recommend that you make yourself as comfortable as possible.

A foam fold out mattress or a tatami is ideal as it doesn't make any noise when you move. Ask your neighbors and friends as you probably can borrow instead of buying one!

No camp beds with squeaky frames please! Just use the mattress.

A self inflated mattress like these from Decathlon are a possibility:

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.
