GONG BATH SOUND SANCTUARY AND GUIDED MEDITATION

Alicia Davies

A Gong Bath is a profoundly relaxing experience. Washed by waves of sound, the body, mind and spirit enter a state of cohesion, while the vibrations of the powerful Planet Gongs and other healing instruments cause the cells to resonate sympathetically. Combined with the powerful effects of guided imagery, it’s a fast track to deep meditation - even personal transformation - perfect for quieting the busy mind, and stimulating for the body’s innate healing abilities.

If it is the first time you’ve tried the experience, the power of a Gong Bath - sometimes known as sound massage – may be something of a surprise. The sounds of the gong vary dramatically from the quietest whisper to a primal roar; a wall of sound that resonates everything it touches, including the particles that make up our physical bodies. The Gong’s frequencies are cleansing and purifying, detoxing, relaxing, and stimulating, depending on the state in which you arrive for your session. All that is required of you is to turn up, lie down, and chill out. Each Gong Bath Sound Sanctuary session is accompanied by a channelled guided meditation.

“I’m a practitioner of sound therapy and was lucky to spend some time with Alicia at a recent festival. The eclectic mix of sounds and vibration was out of this world. [It was] the best sound bath

I have ever attended, and I’ve been to many.”

Bring a blanket, warm socks, a cushion and something to lie on (a yoga mat is ideal).

Gong Baths and guided meditations are normally safe for all. However, Gong Bathing is not advised for those who are pregnant, have a pacemaker, who suffer from Meniere’s disease, have a history of psychotic episodes, or who experience epileptic seizures in the state between sleeping and waking. This is because the effect of the sound vibrations and the guided meditation can act as a trigger. You are responsible for consulting your medical practitioner before attending if you have any concerns regarding your mental or physical health, and for disclosing any such conditions before the event begins. Earth Song Sound Healing cannot be held responsible for any unexpected or unwanted effects that may arise as a result of taking part in a session of Guided Meditation and/or Gong Bath.
