Event description

Description

"You are not a drop in the ocean: you are the ocean in a single drop!" Rumi

On the evening of the day after the shortest day of the year, otherwise known as Winter Solstice, I will be running an extra special Gong Bath Sound Sanctuary to welcome the returning light as the world tilts on its axis. This time of year has had special significance to humanity for millenia, and in a world where chaos appears to have the upper hand, it is important to realise the timelessness of consciousness and our own internal power.

Winter Solstice and Christmas offer two powerful energetic turning points for us that have been all but hidden under the frenzy of the 21st Centurys’ obsession with stuff. But the true meaning of these occasions is just below the surface, waiting to be rediscovered. This is why I have chosen to add some extra dates outside my normal schedule: one in the shadow of the powerful Solstice energies and just a squeak before the festivities kick in for real, and the other just days before 2018 makes its grand and spectacular entrance. I’m expecting fireworks of an altogether different kind for this new year. Excitement is building, and I, personally, can’t wait!!!

Planned for next year are a series of recorded guided meditations and healing sounds. Watch this space!

Nothing is required of you at my regular Gong Bath Sound Sanctuary at Zen Yoga except to turn up, lie down, and chill out. It’s a time in the week when you can give yourself permission to do something only for you; a sanctuary to which you can retreat to refresh and renew your body, mind, and spirit, gently guided by someone who is focused on your wellbeing.

The guided relaxation and meditation will ease you into Alpha and Theta brainwave states, when your brain will match the frequency of the Schumann Resonance, the pulse of the Earth.


No water is involved in a Gong Bath; the pulses of sound cause the cells of the body to vibrate sympathetically with the frequencies produced by the instruments, delivering a massage at a level below conscious awareness - though sometimes this can be felt as tingling sensations in the body.


The effect can be to stimulate a healing response in muscles, joints, and tendons, and - because the brain easily enters a meditative brainwave state, there may also be a reduction in stress responses.


Feel free to bring some crystals if you have them. You may also want to bring a candle in a jar, and if we have enough, we will do the session by candlelight. I recommend you wear warm layers including socks, as body temperature drops quickly in a deeply relaxed state.


Please arrive AT LEAST 10 MINUTES EARLY for a 7.30pm start. There are drop-in attendees as well, and sessions can be very busy, so if you want to pick the best spot, don’t come late! :-) No access is possible when the session is in progress.


Price £15, plus the Eventbrite booking fee if booked online. £10 Concessions payable on the door.


Gong Baths are not advised for those who are pregnant, have a pacemaker, or suffer from epilepsy, menieres syndrome or a serious mental condition such as psychosis. Some medical implants are fine: please ask first! Gong Bathing is otherwise beneficial for all.


Zen Yoga is at 24a Camberwell Grove, London SE5, opposite no.43.
