A gong bath is an immersive sound experience. It’s called a ‘bath’ because sound waves ‘wash’ over you as you relax and enjoy the melodic journey. The harmonics will effortlessly lull your mind into a meditative state, while the vibrations revitalize your body and help to release tension. By the end, you’ll feel supremely relaxed, calm and happy.
Everyone is welcome – experienced meditators and those curious to try a gong bath for the first time. The beauty of a gong bath meditation is that anyone can enjoy it, no experience necessary. (Please see note below about circumstances where gong baths might not be suitable).
The sound and vibrations from the gong help to centre the mind, calm the nervous system, and restore vitality to the body.
Here are a few suggestions for what to bring:
- Something comfortable to lie on, such as a yoga mat
- A blanket or warm jumper
- A pillow for your head
- Something to cover your eyes with
Spots are very limited so grab yours now! Social distancing guidelines will be observed, so you’ll have plenty of space to yourself while being close to the gong for maximum vibrational effect.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Gong baths are not suitable for anyone with a pacemaker, anyone who suffers from fits (epileptics), or anyone who is extremely sensitive to sound. They are also not recommended for women in the first trimester of pregnancy due to the unstable nature of pregnancy during that time. If you wear a hearing aid, your device should be turned off during the session. If you have any concerns, please speak with your doctor in advance.
Who will be leading the session?
This session will be led by David Little. David is a musician with a keen interest in the power of sound and music to alter mood and consciousness. In his sessions he plays a symphonic gong and koshi chimes. He holds a peaceful and calming space, helping attendees to experience the relaxing and revitalising potential of a gong bath. David initially trained with us at Gong and is now studying for a diploma in Group Sound Relaxation Therapy with the British Academy of Sound Therapy.
