Event description

Description

Join the Holistic Therapy Rooms for a magical combination of a relaxing and heart opening Cacao Ceremony with Reiki Drum journey, followed by the healing sounds of the Gongs, Singing Bowls and other sound instruments.

Cacao is a gentle plant medicine. We'll be using her properties to focus on the heart chakra as part of a guided drum journey before the Sound bath itself. (If you do not wish to drink the Cacao, and would however still like to take part in the guided drum journey and sound bath then that is absolutely fine).

Sound Baths using Gongs allow the mind and body to further relax and switch off as the sound resonates through you invoking a deeper more relaxed state.The gong is a magical and sacred instrument used in parts of Asia for religious and ceremonial events. In the sound baths, we will be using gongs for relaxation. As the Gong is struck, the sound blossoms and resonates through the body at a cellular level. The sound also stimulates the Alpha and Theta brainwaves invoking a meditative, dream like or sleep like state.

Sound Baths/ Gong Baths will be held on a monthly basis in a group setting with advance booking as places are limited.
