GONG BATHS

Our gong baths offer a powerful opportunity enjoy a deep meditative state while your energy is brought back into resonance.

I offer gong baths and sound therapy in scheduled public group sessions, as well as privately to individuals, couples, or groups.

Reaching you on the deepest level

A gong bath, or gong meditation, is a totally immersive mind and body experience.

A masterfully crafted gong can be an incredibly powerful tool. The gong is a uniquely resonant instrument, and when played adeptly they produce long rolling waves of vibrations with layer upon layer of rich harmonic overtones. The sound isn’t only received by your ears, but the frequencies resonate through your whole being. In this way, the music of the gongs induce meditation while facilitating balancing and healing on a mental, emotional, physical, and energetic level.

Attending a gong bath is a deeply relaxing, restorative, and healing experience. They are easy for anybody to access, as all that is required of you is to lie or sit comfortably, covered, wrapped, or supported in whatever way you choose.

HOW DO GONG BATHS WORK?

Gong Meditation

Joining a ReShape gong bath will make available to you a deeply relaxed, meditative state. Many people find it difficult to meditate, but in the course of this gong bath, the process of the evening and the sound of the gong will take you there.

Your brainwaves will drop into Theta frequency (4-7.5Hz) – this is the realm of your subconscious mind. These waves are present during deep meditation and light sleep, including the REM dream state. They offer a sense of deep spiritual connection and oneness with the Universe.

You may then drop deeper into Delta frequency (0.5-4Hz) – the realm of your unconscious mind. These are the slowest brain waves and are present in deep, dreamless sleep and in very deep meditation where awareness is completely detached. Delta is associated with deep healing and regeneration.

So without any effort on your behalf (other than presence and willingness) and before you know it, you will have spent an extended period in deep meditation. There are countless benefits to be sought from having spent time in this state – to summarise in short, a better functioning body and mind.

Sound/Vibrational Therapy

There is nothing solid in the universe, just tiny pockets of vibrating energy – atoms. Vibration is the substance of creation. When all of the molocules that comprise our body vibrate freely at their optimum frequencies, our body is in harmony and energy flows. We flow. When vibrational energy is disrupted – due to stress, illness, inflammation, electro-magnetic radiation or other factors – energy blockages arise and things become much harder for us physically and mentally. Entrainment is the process by which a frequency will cause another to gradually to fall into synchrony with it. By setting the right conditions and working with vibrations – the sound of the gong – we can bring your body back into resonance and harmony. Anyone interested in “energy” will appreciate the gong as a powerful instrument of multidimensional change.

Sound Journeying

Having your attention drawn to sound for an extended period of time declutters the mind, clears emotional blockages, and helps alleviate physical aches and pains. But there is more to the sound journey than that. We have a deeply intimate experience with sound – it is the first sense we experience, long before the others, in our mother’s womb. The comforting low beating of the heart, and the soothing vibrations from murmering voices.  So the third way in which our gong baths create connection, grounding, and movement in you is through the rich and focused sound experience itself.

“Sound Healing”

Many people refer to this type of work as “Sound Healing”. A necessary distinction is that only the body has the ability to heal itself. What we can do is create conditions that support it in performing this amazing natural function. The work I do with the gong helps address a significant and essential part of that. Through the processes outlined above, with gong baths I offer you the opportunity to create conditions in your mind, body, and spirit for deep relaxation, restoration, and reconnection. I hope you will join me.

WHAT DO PARTICIPANTS SAY?

Gong meditations are a deeply personal experience and it’s best to come to them with presence, free from expectation. However, to give you a flavour of the kind of feedback I receive, here are some reflections that participants have chosen to share publicly (please know that everything is confidential unless you specifically state otherwise)

As a former professional musician, and practicing music educator, I have a great appreciation for – and experience with – sound. Music is the organisation of vibrations. It is my belief that music is the innate language of the universe. It is our experience of life way before any other sense develops. Music facilitates communication on the deepest possible level. It’s my great honour to be able to offer these beautiful, healing vibrations to you.”
