The gong is an ancient instrument for raising consciousness, ceremony & healing. It represents the primordial sound vibration 'AUM', which has the potential to lead us to inner silence.
Ali guides you to settle, relax and breathe into the space before setting your sankalpa (intention) for the session. Laying snug and supported in shavasana there is nothing more for you to do; just surrender into an ocean of sacred sound, created by the majestic gong as well as conch, drum, singing bowls, voice, shruti box and elemental instruments.
The gong by-passes the mind and guides us into the heart space; the brain-waves slow and consciousness expands. The body feels every vibration and frequency, responding to the living tones of the gong; its rhythms are harmonised, tensions unravel and life force flows more freely.
The experience is different for each one of us each and every time. The gong sound bath can be highly effective in pain relief, coping with stress, emotional balance & spiritual growth … to name a few of its diverse benefits.
All are welcome – no experience of sound healing, yoga or meditation is required.
Please speak to Ali beforehand (07855 402 837) if you are pregnant, have a pace maker, sensitivity to sound, metal implants from recent surgery or with any other health concerns.
Please wear comfy, warm layers and bring socks, a yoga mat or something to lay on, a blanket, a small cushion for your head (and an eye pillow if you wish). If you need to borrow a yoga mat or blanket please ask in advance.
It helps to be well hydrated to practise and avoid having a heavy meal right before the sound bath.
