Thank you for the session on Tuesday. My friend Karen posted this on her Facebook page. You managed to convert my cynical pal Julia too! Look forward to seeing you soon, Christine x
So, tonight another new experience ... a gong sound bath. What an amazing meditative deeply relaxing experience. Having heard of these for some time and looked at going several times previously it took a girlfriend to suggest coming along to someone she knew who was doing one.
Unsure what exactly to expect (I knew it didn’t involve bathing in water!!!) we arrived in a semi darkened room in which people were already lying down in various comfy positions tucked up in blankets. At the front of the group was a beautiful display of Tibetan singing bowls, quartz singing bowls and 2 powerful looking gongs.
Sonia our ‘gong master’ then explained what would happen and invited us to make ourselves as comfortable as possible and enjoy the experience ...
It was a deeply transformative, meditative, deeply relaxing experience. Time disappeared and i really couldn’t believe when she started to ‘wake’ us back up again with some percussion instruments that a whole hour had passed. Every sound felt very natural, very comforting and I had a feeling of not wanting each sound to end. I had feelings of heat, particulary in areas that have had accidents or trauma in the past. It all felt very nourishing and comforting ....
I am now home and feel deeply fatigued which is not surprising after such a deep level of relaxation and letting go. Off to bed now to continue the healing ... if you haven’t tried one yet I can fully recommend it. The therapeutic properties of sound are well known and documented and indeed Sonia herself works with people with cancer. If nothing else it offers a deeply relaxing experience and time out from our very busy lives,
