Outdoors Movement Class with Gong Meditation July 15th, Noon

£20.00

Commencing at noon on Wednesday 15th July on private land in the outskirts of Petersfield.

I invite you into a space of movement, meditation, relaxation, reconnection, and restoration in a beautiful outdoors setting.

Join a small group – observing the necessary social distancing guidelines – in the heart of the Hampshire countryside for an afternoon of harmony and resonance.

The session will run at 2 hours and comprise yoga/movement, followed by a gong meditation.

The movement that we will do will not only provide innumerable physical benefits – helping develop mobility, flexibility, strength, coordination, balance, hormone balance, immune function, circulation, and so on; but it also primes the body and mind beautifully for a deep meditative state, facilitated by the gongs and the sounds of nature.

Please wear loose or flexible clothes. You will need to bring a yoga mat (get in touch beforehand if you don’t have one), a bottle of water, and your presence. Please also feel free to bring whatever helps you to be comfortable: a blanket, a sheep skin, a camping mattress, a pillow or cushion for your head, and a journal if you wish.

Please read the FAQ’s below for further information, or if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Description

Reaching you on the deepest level

An expertly crafted gong can be an incredibly powerful tool. Played properly, they produce an expansive range of frequencies, tones, and harmonies. Entrainment is the process by which a frequency will cause another to gradually to fall into synchrony with it. It is through this process that the cells of the body can select the necessary vibrations to free up and fall back in to harmony…

  • Why Gongs?

    My intention is to focus gently but powerfully on holistic wellness. Other instruments such as bowls, handpan drums, rattles, whistles and so on all offer very beautiful aural experiences but equally each sound is a fluctuation or disturbance - in yoga this would be a state of Vritti. We are looking for focus -the state of Samadhi, or oneness with the object of meditation. Stillness, singularity, and total relaxation. So to bring the experience away from the ears and the mind, and deep into our body and spirit. Additionally, unlike these other tools, gongs uniquely offer extremely low frequencies, which work deeply.

  • Will I need to bring swimwear?

    Absolutely not. The term Gong Bath is a slight misnomer. Gong baths can take place in water absolutely - but the vast majority do not. The term has come to refer to the idea of bathing in the sound of the gong. So by all means feel free to don your swimwear but unless you have specifically scheduled a session in water, our "Gong Baths" will be in the warm and dry, under blankets. So we suggest you wear loose, comfortable clothing.

  • What should I bring?

    Whatever you need to feel comfortable. I suggest:

    • Something soft to lie on - a mat or sheep skin for example
    • A pillow
    • A blanket
    • A bottle of water
    • An eye mask if you like
    • An optional cushion for under your feet
    • A journal if you wish.

  • How can I prepare?

    We will be creating a very sacred space together. So I invite you to come in to the space with your presence, an open heart, and an open mind. That said, whatever you come with will be welcomed with warm, care, and understanding. All that will be required of you is to create a comfortable space in which to lie down.

  • What will it feel like?

    It's best not to arrive with a fixed idea of how you might experience your gong bath. It's a deeply personal experience, best received by totally submitting to the presence with the experience.

  • What will take place?

    I will have to ask you to trust me with the process - you are in safe hands. It will be an evening of warmth, connection, and nourishment. If you have any concerns please get in touch.

  • Who are Gong Baths for?

    Every body. Female, male, non-binary, any age. Because the way I play would be different for children, I ask anyone under the age of 16 (or looking to bring someone under the age of 16) to get in touch first. If you have any questions about suitability for you for any reason at all, please get in touch.

  • Is a Gong Bath suitable for my health condition?

    If you have a particular health condition that may be relevant or that you feel may be contraindicated, please discuss it with me by phone or email before booking.

  • Pregnant?

    Please get in touch before booking. Gong baths can be deeply soothing and nourishing but I need some more information to determine the most suitable way for you to receive the gong bath. It may not be as part of an open group.
