Please wear warm clothes and bring your own mats and blankets or sleeping bags to the venue.
“ Psychedelic experience without psychedelics”.
As you lie on a mat on the floor, gongs, singing bowls, other ritual instruments and voice will be used to weave a tapestry of sound.
The vibrations create a feeling of being 'bathed' or carried away into the space, with participants variously reporting subtle or powerful bodily sensations, a deep meditative state often accompanied by rich imagery and visions, or feeling of timeless nothingness and bliss. During the session the brainwaves are altered to the state that is self-healing, and has balancing benefits on the body and mind. Occasionally some sounds might trigger unpleasant and suppressed emotions that flow up to the surface — please accept them as a part of a healing process. In most cases the overall experience is very relaxing and ecstatic, and participants feel refreshed and recharged for a few days after the session.
Tea with lucid dreaming herbs will be served before the gong bath.
To get the best out of the experience:
* KEEP YOURSELF WARM & COMFY. The venue is an old church. Bring a sleeping bag or warm blankets + mat/mattress to lie down on. Wear thick socks and warm clothes.
* COME WITH NO EXPECTATIONS and with an open mind.
* WEAR AN EYE MASK or put a scarf on your face to cover your eyes which can enhance your visual sound experience.
~ Doors open at 7.30pm. Please take your shoes off before entering the hall, and place your mats in tidy concentric circles around the centre.
~ Switch off your mobiles and use the toilets before the sound session begins.
~ We close the door strictly at 8.00pm. Gong sound bath lasts about 1hr20min, followed by 5-10min of gentle sounds and waking up.
