The Gong is a scared healing instrument that has been used ritually for thousands of years for the purpose of healing and inducing altered states of consciousness. It is a deeply relaxing session, which, for some, can also be a very invigorating experience. Each one is unique and each one will throw up different emotions every time. All you need do is turn up and lie down, you will then be bathed in the sounds and vibrations of the Gong. 

There is a science behind this experience…. the sound of the Gong activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which takes the body into a natural state of balance activating your body’s natural ability to heal and detox while calming and soothing busy minds. It may even release emotional pain and mental blockages. However, I don’t really think the scientific explanation does the experience justice. A more fitting way to explain the experience for me is by referencing Kabir’s Ecstatic Poems translated by Robert Bly:

…..”near your breastbone there’s an open flower. Drink the honey that is all around that flower. Waves are coming in: there’s so much magnificence near the ocean! Listen: sound of big seashells! Sound of bells!”……

I hope the experience will stay with you long after the last strike of the Gong.
 

GONG BATH with CACAO CEREMONY
COST: £20
DURATION: 1hour 30min

During the winter months I sometimes run the Gong Bath with a Cacao Ceremony. The cacao drink is prepared to a traditional South American recipe. The mix of the cacao drink and the gong will lift your energy whilst allowing your body to relax and your mind to clear.’Ceremonial use of the Cacao dates back to the Olmecs and archaeological evidence points as far back as 15,000 years ago. Wall carvings and pottery document Cacao rituals as sacred offerings and coming of age rituals and there is even evidence that the Cacao bean was used as a currency so revered was the bean. This gives us some idea of the power of Cacao. It is said that Cacao is the food of the Goddess. Goddess energy is about being in the moment, it is about surrender, acceptance and loving everything. It’s a wake up food, waking you up to your full power, to who you truly are, to the potentiality of the moment, to the universe. In its raw untampered with state the cacao bean is one of the most nutrient-dense foods known to man. It is a premium source of minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, protein and healthy fats. Just one of the compounds, Theobromine, helps dilate the blood and opens up the lungs therefore powerfully activating the cardiovascular system which can have a stimulating effect for some individuals. There is more, there is a lot more, however for all of the above reasons and the ones I haven’t mentioned a Raw Cacao drink is the perfect platform for receiving a Gong Bath.
