All-Night Psychedelic Gong Bath is a unique sound healing event organized by two sound healers Kat and Francisco, offering you an opportunity to enter a deep meditative & healing state of consciousness, as you are guided by sound into a transcendental journey, throughout the night until sunrise.
We use various instruments including symphonic, planet & wind gongs, crystal & Himalayan singing bowls, shamanic drums, didgeridoo, shruti boxes, combined with overtone singing, and vocal toning, weaving a tapestry of sound to guide you on your journey within.
The evening will begin with 1 hour ‘Flow Connect’ movement workshop by Dani. She will guide you gently and playfully through your senses using movement, voice and imagination. Then there will be a short break for tea and time to set up your ‘sleeping nests’ for the night ceremony.
After a short introduction, a guided meditation will lead you into the sound journey. You will be “bathed” in the sound waves of the gongs & other instruments for nearly 8 hours continuously. As the powerful vibrations and harmonics wash over you, they will induce deep relaxation, altered states of consciousness and support to release tensions and emotional blocks.
Participants variously report powerful bodily sensations and meditative states often accompanied by rich imagery, visions and insights, or feelings of timelessness, ecstasy and bliss. The overall experience can feel both visionary & psychedelic. Please be gentle with yourself for the remainder of the weekend to fully ‘digest’ the process, which can last for a few days after the experience.
After the all-night ceremony gongs will go silent for 15 minutes of stillness & reflection. Following a short morning meditation, everyone will be invited to the lounge & cafe area to share their night experiences with each other over a freshly prepared plant based breakfast.

We ask that you keep your “sleeping nest” within a reasonable size & don’t use double mattresses for one person. There are heaters in the hall but please bring anything you will need to ensure you're warm throughout the night.

“It was such a beautiful experience – a beautifully set up and held space - I was in a mix of meditation, relaxation, sleep and deep contemplation all night and I met some really beautiful people there too - I could have stayed there forever :) Thank you for holding such an amazing space X” Sean
“Absolutely perfect in every way” Chloe
"Incredible healing sound journey. What you together have created is truly remarkable. I was awake for all but 2 hour and felt every moment. Grateful for what you give to the Universe” Rikk
“I loved it! It was very cosy and even though I came alone I felt safe enough to fall asleep. I woke up with some firm positive ideas so it definitely worked its magic.” Tialda
"They created a container that helped me feel held and safe enough to let go and voyage into myself. The power of the gongs and strength of their chants enabling a deep process within me - catalyzed by a skillful balance between familiarity and novelty, between safety and provocation. The food was excellent and they were well equipped to meet my additional needs. The practitioners were clearly at the top of their game. It's definitely the best slumber party I've ever attended!” Mikey
“One of the best experiences of my life. A*****+++++” Ryan
