Sound Healing & Double Gong Relaxation
When: Friday June 8th, 7:30-9:00 pm
Though still a couple weeks away, summer solstice, which spiritually symbolizes our own rise in consciousness is just around the corner. The energy and light of the coming season combined with the stress relieving and meditative benefits of sound healing will allow participants to reset themselves and clarify their intentions. The evening begins with gentle stretching and movement (all beginner level), breathing, and meditation to allow the nervous system to prepare for the sound vibrations. Then enjoy a version of yoga nidra (guided relaxation) segueing into an at least 35 minute long double gong bath. Sounds of quartz crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, and chimes will also be trickled throughout the event.
The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation, releases us from the torrent of thoughts our mind continuously generates and stimulates our glandular system to a higher frequency of functioning.
“The gong is the first and last instrument for the human mind. There is only one thing that can supersede and command the human mind-the sound of the gong. It is the first sound in the universe, the sound that created this universe. It is the basic creative sound. To the mind, the sound of the gong is like a mother and father that gave it birth. The mind has no power to resist a gong that is well played.” – Yogi Bhajan
Mats and blankets are available to use but if you'd like extra comfort, bring an extra blanket and pillow.
