Healing with sound is one of the oldest and most natural forms of healing known to man. Chanting and drumming has been used to soothe the mind and emotions in many eastern cultures. It is realised that harmonious sounds go deeper than just wellbeing. It goes to a cellular level.
The Gong has dates back to ancient times. It is thought the Gong has a universal sound.
The Gongs used in a sound healing meditation are healing Gongs. When the Gongs are played, they move prana (life force energy) throughout the body. This movement on a physical level, eliminates tension, stimulates circulation and glandular systems and parasympathetic system.
Embarking on a journey with the Gong for meditation practice will significantly accelerate your progress on multiple levels because of the overall transformative effect of the Gong on healing and consciousness.
The Gong works deeply on the mental, emotional and spiritual bodies, purifying and quietening the mind. It literally cuts through the linear mind and clears the clutter from the subconscious mind to reveal the radiant and authentic self.
During a Gong sound meditation, you will not only hear the Gong but feel the vibrations on the inside of your body. Listeners experiences a sense of connectedness and peace. One is lulled into a Theta or REM sleep state, where you are not asleep or awake. The Gong sound waves naturally slow down mental brainwave activity that corresponds to these deep states. This is the state of healing.
Other benefits include:
- Calming the mind
- Reducing internal mind dialogue
- Rebalance the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies
- Awaken higher states of consciousness
Gong sound meditations are excellent remedy for stress related issues, depression, fatigue, addiction, anger, hostility, feelings of fear separation and loneliness with many other conditions that see you with place of balance and harmony in the body.
Classes can be in a group session or one on one. In a group session it is collective energy healing meditation. Which means the whole groups energy being healed. One on One its you only. If you have something that you deeply want to heal then this type of meditation would be beneficial.
Gong sound meditations allow you to relax, renew and rejuvenate. The structure of the class is predominantly the Gong sounds however there are a few other instruments that may be brought into the meditation.
