"I’ve been sleeping terribly and my brain has been very busy so jumping into full mindfulness was very overwhelming. But have been so much more rested since so thank you!! It was a wonderful session, I’ll definitely be coming again." (Polly)
This is the seventh of eight monthly gong baths running throughout the year offering:
relaxation and stress-relief
mind-body-spirit balance and alignment
restoration of well-being
self-awareness and personal development
You can attend one, some or all of the gong baths. The chakra theme is to offer focus; however, if you just want to turn up and 'gong out', that's fine. I'm sure that you will receive what you need.
Please Note: you MUST read the 'Contra-Indications' below before booking.
The focus of this gong bath is to develop awareness and create balance in, 'The Integrated Spiritual Self - The Sahasrara Chakra' (Also know as the 'Crown Chakra').
Sanskrit scriptures accept us as vibrational beings consisting of spinning energy centres (chakras), channels and fields corresponding to physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects. The Chinese Meridien System also supports that we are energy emitting vibrations, tones, colours, etc.
Chakras are located up the spine and can become discordant through factors such as unhealthy lifestyle choices, childhood trauma, unmet needs and suppressed emotions. We thus get pulled out of alignment and can feel sluggish, irritable or depressed effecting our relationship with self and others.
If not addressed, the chakra can eventually become blocked causing ill-health, aches, pains or breakdown.
To avoid this, we need to restore harmony and healthy functioning by dissolving the densities we carry.
'The Integrated Spiritual Body - Crown Chakra'
The Sahaswara/Crown Chakra relates to:
acceptance on all levels
connection with higher self, all beings, the cosmos and all that is/creation
spirituality and universal consciousness
source of enlightenment
pure consciousness and awareness
expansiveness - I am the whole; the whole is me
integration of whole being: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual
clarity, miracles and pure unconditional love
free from individual self, the ego, impulses, desires and suffering
selfless service ('Seva"),compassion, humility, grace, beauty, joy, kindness, forgiveness
Colour: Violet and/or White; Mantra Sound: OM
Issues in some/all of the above could reflect a dysfunction in your Sahaswara chakra.
How can a gong bath help?
Tones and vibrations resonated around an individual effect the energy system and brainwaves in such a way as to induce deep relaxation and meditation. When we meditate our parasympathetic nervous system is stimulated to create a space of 'rest and digest' where healing can occur.
The tones and vibrations loosen density and stress while 're-tuning' and re-aligning the energy system.
But, gong baths aren't for everyone!
Are in your first trimester of pregnancy
Have a severe mental illness Have a 'sound sensitive’ condition or conditions that could be triggered by sound. Have a heart condition or pacemaker; the sound can resonate metal implants, pins, screws, etc. and could change rhythm of pacemakers.
Online bookings will secure your place. You can drop-in for a cost of: £18, but you run the risk of being turned away if the class is full.
Bring extra bedding, blankets, cushions, bolsters, etc. anything to make yourself as snug and comfortable as you like. Don't worry if you forget your Yoga mat - there are some at the venue.
