Description

Summer All Night Gong Puja
20-21 July

We would love to invite you to something extraordinary, and that we have wanted to create for a long time, and soon really will happen. Are you experienced with Gong Baths, and are ready to take the gong vibration experience to a deeper level? Or are you an experienced gong player, and would love to join this all night gong co-creation?

During the night between Saturday – Sunday 20-21 July the gongs will be playing the whole night (at low volume) on the seafront of Eastbourne with the sound of the sea as sonic background. You will get the opportunity to rest and sleep immersed in the sound of the gongs, and also to play for about 30 min during the night.

The all night gong puja is suitable for experienced gong bath participants and experienced gong players. Experienced gong bath participants who have never played the gong, have the opportunity to connect with, and play the gongs (or allow them to play you) during a workshop before the Gong Puja to learn how to approach the gongs, and when playing the 30 minutes during the night, Maria or Patricia can support you and play with you.

Originated by Gongmaster Don Conreaux, a gong puja is an all-night nurturing and transformational gong immersion, a powerful sound healing event, and profound spiritual experience.

It usually lasts 7,5 h, and everyone is encouraged to fully engage by taking turns playing the gongs ( each person plays approximately 30 minutes each), and when not playing simply resting/sleeping into the experience.

‘The energy of the gong puja space is much more lightly charged than the energy of a normal bedroom, because it is filled with the sound of the gongs. Therefore, sleep will not necessarily be the usual kind of sleep that people are used to having. It is more likely be dominated by Theta brainwaves, as the gong sounds may bring up visions and induce healing from the emotional casual layer which is our subconscious reality – things we hold from the past. So more sensitive participants are likely to find that their sleep is quite colourful and adventured -filled, possibly with visions. Other over-tired people may go into a deep sleep for most of the night. It is different for everyone. You can really expect anything in a gong puja’. Sheila Whittaker (Sound Healer, Gong Master and Gong Teacher)

At the heart of the gong puja is the sound and vibration of the gong, which works as a tool to balance the physical body, mind, emotions, energetic body, and spirit. Known as the sound of total resonance, the sound of the gong gives the body a sonic massage helping to: stimulate circulation, activate the parasympathetic nervous system; slow down brainwaves and connect with meditative states and insights; let go of emotional ‘burdens’; clear energetic debris; and expand awareness.

We would love to share this experience with you.
