For those who have never attended a gong bath or sound healing, and who might be sceptical of it being a bit woo-woo, all I can say is please try it, you won’t look back. Even those of you who may have had a few uncertain, unsettling experiences with the gong – I too have been there! – can rest assured that this will be different. In the words of my trainer “The gong works on all levels to heal and transform.
From the purely physical, to the emotional and spiritual. Its cosmic resonance does what all therapy is made to do – reminds us of who we truly are and not what we think we have become.” And let’s face it, we can all do with a bit of that. Benefits include: Aiding a deeper sleep * Reducing stress & anxiety * Assist with pain relief * Helping to break addictive habits and regenerate the nervous system.
“In sound we are born, in sound we are healed” Mehtab Benton
I was blessed to be trained by who many see as the ultimate gong master – Mehtab Benton – renowned teacher and author of nearly all the most definitive books and guides to gongs. It was one of the most magical, transformational trainings I’ve ever experienced, with the focus from start to finish on only ever playing the gong from a neutral mind and an open heart, and each and every time I play it I feel lucky I am able to share the gifts each gong session brings, and in a way that calms and relaxes the body and soul, rather than shock it as some gong playing does.
All you need to do is layback, pop your eyelids shut, open the ears and open your mind. What do you have to loose :@)
