GONG BATH with Crystal Singing Pyramids

03:00 pm to 04:30 pm
Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center - 3655 South Snoddy Rd - Bloomington, In

When the Gong is played it bathes the human body in sound – this is why we use the term “Gong bath” to describe this type of therapy – the recipient is literally bathed in the sounds of the Gong. There is no water involved & no clothes are removed! It is like a very deep and lasting massage with sound, tuning the physical body and soul to the greatest possible resonance, while totally letting go. It is usually experienced lying down on your back (can be experienced sitting up), receiving the sound energy of the Gong as it is played moving through the nervous system – opening, clearing and recharging the whole mind, body and spirit. It triggers a meditative, contemplative state in which we have the opportunity to relinquish control of the mind. Negativity and chaos are suspended, irregularity and resistance are cleared, and the whole being is reset to a state of synchrony and alignment.

During a Gong bath the body takes in the sounds that it needs for healing, & filters out what it does not need. The usual result of a Gong bath is that the person being gonged feels very calm, relaxed & de-stressed, & often goes into a state of meditation automatically, where healing can more readily occur. Some physical aches & pains might have disappeared, or may lessen or vanish subsequently as the sounds of the Gong continue to do their work long after the Gong bath has finished. Like all forms of Sound Healing it works on all levels – physical, mental, emotional & spiritual. The Gong is thus a very powerful instrument for healing.

Other sacred instruments are used during the gong baths and personal sound healing sessions to enhance the attendees experience. They may include Indian drums, crystal singing pyramid, steel tongue drum, chakra chimes and monochord to name some of them. Which instruments are used in addition to the gongs vary with each individual gong bath. Each gong bath you attend is a different experience.

The Gong Baths are 1 1/2 hours. They include a brief explanation, time to set your intent for the gong bath, being bathed in the sound of the gongs and other instruments for approximately 60 minutes; finishing with 10-15 minutes of silence.
