MINDFULNESS MEDITATION AND GONG SOUND BATH FOR HEALING
Sun 7 May 2017, 15:00 – 17:00 BST
Meditation for Healing
Join us for a two-hour meditative journey where we will be harnessing the power of mindfulness meditation and gong sound meditation to bring about emotional and physical healing.
Mindfulness and gong meditation are time-old proven methods which inhibit the stress response and allow the body to heal naturally.
Mindfulness meditation switches on the parasympathetic nervous system, putting the body into the resting, repairing and healing mode.
The sound of the gong is not only heard, but absorbed through the body and into our very cells. These vibrations stimulate the cells towards health and vitality. The gong also induces a spontaneous meditative state in the mind by lowering brain wave frequencies, which takes us from Beta, our waking state and the incessant chattering mind, to Theta, a calmer, dream like state, where the natural ability of the body to heal itself, is activated.
We will be meeting in a private, spacious room overlooking Ealing Common and afterwards we will be hosting a social gathering downstairs in the pub/diner to forge relationships and grow as a community.
You will experience:
• A 20 minute Mindfulness of Body and Breath meditation for healing. PLUS
• A 30 minute Mindfulness Body Scan which will enable you to reinvigorate mind-body connections and cleanse the body with breath scanning. PLUS
• A 45 minute Gong Bath to help you enter Theta and heal emotionally and physically. You will leave feeling totally energised and transformed!

WHAT IS GONG MEDITATION?
The gong is a powerful and therapeutic instrument and has been used for ritual, ceremony, prayer and meditation for thousands of year.
Gong baths are extremely relaxing. The sound of the gong is not only heard but absorbed through the body as gentle vibration and reverberation; both calming and soothing. It cuts through our mental chatter and leads the listener to experience rich feelings of other worldliness, timelessness, expanded awareness and total mind-body harmony.
WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?
Mindfulness is an aspect of a number of ancient spiritual traditions. Most notably, it is associated with Buddhism and has been used for approximately 2,500 years as a means to alleviate human suffering, alleviate stress and bring on a sense of joy and well-being. In the West it is now taught without any reference to religion and is backed-up by extensive scientific research
