What is a Gong Bath Meditation?
When we want to clean our bodies, we use soap and water. A gong bath uses sound and vibration to cleanse us on the inside - emotionally and physiologically. There is no water involved, nor clothes removed.
Just as a body massage works out tight and knotted muscles, the "sonic massage" of a gong bath works out emotional issues that we need to release in order to move forward in life. The listener only has to let go and let the sound of the gong do the work. The experience is effortless and the results profound.
What are the benefits of Sound Bath?
A Gong Bath Meditation is a unique and highly personal experience. The gong speaks to each one of us individually, meeting us wherever we are on our life journey. During the meditation, all levels of your Being - physical, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual - will benefit from the deep, healing resonance of the gongs.
For most people, a gong bath is a deeply relaxing and peaceful experience. It can be intense and bring to the surface some old traumas and forgotten memories. It can make you cry for no particular reason be it emotional or euphoric crying.
The gong works to have a clearing effect on emotional issues, breaking up limiting and negative thought patterns, and as a result, is an
excellent therapy option for stress related issues, such as depression and anxiety.
Sound can generate profound changes in your brain and nervous system (parasympathetic and sympathetic). It interacts with our cells thus can help facilitate a better communication amidst mitochondria (the energy and life factory within each cell). This means better immunity and better sleep!
Gong Meditation is the practice of "re-tuning" the human being back to ideal frequencies via a universal physical and biological principle known as Sonic Entrainment. The human body knows what feels harmonious and tunes into what is needed during the meditation.
The vast range of rich overtones produced by the gong deeply bathes every cell of the body - muscles, bones, organs, nervous system, etc. and anything can be brought back into alignment. Gong Bath Meditation has been shown to have myriad additional physical and emotional benefits. These include: improving flexibility and coordination, increasing endorphin levels, boosting immune and glandular functioning, reducing tension and regulating stress-related hormones, and even improving digestion.
The frequencies of sound can heal almost everything in the physical form. That's what we have been waiting for.
