Please join us for a special gong bath at the Winter Solstice 2013. The Winter Solstice is the shortest day of the year, but marks the return of sunlight as the days begin to grow longer. Come experience the powerful energies of this Earth – Sun alignment within the vibration of the Earth Gong.
The gong bath is an immersion in sacred and healing sound. Listeners typically experience a sense of connectedness and peace as the sound of the gong clears blockages and restores the free flow of vital energy throughout the body. With its ability to induce a spontaneous meditative state, the gong offers listeners access to parts of the mind that are usually closed, resulting in a sense of expanded awareness and higher consciousness. Gong sound can be used to rebalance and tone the physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies. It is an excellent therapy for stress related issues, depression, fatigue, anger and hostility, feelings of fear, separation and loneliness, along with many other conditions related to the lack of balance and harmony in the body.
Not all gongs are alike. The Earth Gong is a rare and magnificent instrument, a large, 38-inch gong harmonically tuned to the vibration of the primordial AUM, the Universal Chord, the source of all vibrations, and to the fundamental vibration of Planet Earth as she revolves around the Sun. The Earth Gong produces an incredible depth of frequency and harmonic complexity that is unmatched by any other contemporary gong.
