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?
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)
The gong session was spectacular, I melted, I was more energy than form and that in itself was a beautiful release. It was very special experience and I look forward to hopefully being able to make the next one. I thoroughly enjoyed your energy and you compassionate flexible and gentle guidance of the group, you have a true gift.
Thank you for your wonderful event last Wednesday. The sound of the gongs was totally astounding and transported me to a different level of consciousness.
We attended one of Joe’s workshops in a beautiful garden. It was outstanding…the gong bath was magical. I would thoroughly recommend.
As for the gong bath, these are a particular favourite of mine, however I have found that it depends on the sound frequency of the gongs and how they are used. Your gongs however and how they were used, for me, especially resonated which was a joy and a delight. I was completely lost in the experience and was floating above the clouds, much like certain birds do when they find a thermal!
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.”
