Full Moon Ritual - Reiki sound bath using gong and crystal singing bowls
If you're looking to clear your busy mind, release tension and limiting beliefs and invite in more balance and peace, this event is for you.
Let's join under the powerful energy of this Full Moon energy. A perfect time to release and let go, bust through obstacles or bring illumination and expansion to ideas and dreams.
We'll start the evening with a group reiki energy exercise (You don't need to be Reiki attuned to do this), and then we'll move into guided meditation to really clear the mind, before a release ritual to prepare us for the finale... a gorgeous sound bath using gong, singing bowls, Koshi bells and voice.
Sitting in a circle and connecting in harmonised energy as a group is a very powerful way of building a connection to others and a stronger connection to your inner self. This section will be fully guided and easy to follow, so even if you have never done it before, you can still join and will be fully supported.
MEDITATION & RELEASE RITUAL
Full Moon Magic: Learn to let go and release or illuminate and celebrate in alignment with the moon – it's like having the universe on speed dial 😉
What's a gong bath? Don't worry; there's no water involved and you get to keep your clothes on :-)
Think of the gong bath like a “cheat code” to meditation. You lay and listen to the gong and your body and mind intuitively go to work helping you reach altered and healing states.
As you bathe in the deep vibrations of the crystal singing bowls and the gong, all the cells in the body begin to resonate, stimulating the vagus nerve which controls your bodies relaxation response, helps prevent inflammation in the body and can slow your heart rate. Therapeutic sounds have been shown to inhibit the stress or pain response as well as having a positive effect on your heart and respiratory rates.
They entrain the brain to theta brain wave frequencies where visualisation and the creative power of your mind starts. As you relax deeper you may find you enter a trance-like state, or are able to access different levels of consciousness not explored before.
People often report deep meditative and peaceful states, clarity of mind, and deeper connections to their intuition.
In the years that I have been using sound therapeutically, I've seen miraculous results with people reporting migraines disappearing, anxiety calming, improved sleep patterns, healing surgery pain and other incredible recoveries.
What are people saying about working with gong?
“The gong is more accurately a force of energy, "like a divine engine, affecting the body's meridians. By and large, after it's over, you just feel great, you feel like you've been healed by the spirit of nature." Don Conreau
"The effects lasted well into the evening and even the next morning, when I felt an incredible sense of calm and focus."
-Priyam Sharma - from Huffington Post article Why every stressed out person should try a gong meditation.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐"Before I came to Rachael's gong bath, I was busy and stressed out! I was conscious of time and feeling too wired to relax. It was a beautifully run gong bath. Really relaxing, gentle and healing. The gentle, calm ambiance you managed to create, is the best thing. It was a really lovely event, Rachael. Thank you."
