GONG MEDITATION - 2:00-3:00pm
This session is all about sound and its effects on the human body & energy systems. The Gong’s vibrations can help balance and cleanse the energy in your body. They work at a cellular level and can help with stress, fatigue, depression, anger, and blocked energy. The vibrations can release blockages at the Chakras and other energy points. People are encouraged to bring a Yoga mat and/or blanket on which they can sit or lie, while allowing the healing vibrations to wash over them. Investment $25
SOUND HEALING WORKSHOP - 3:15-4:15pm
This session is designed to introduce people to various Gongs, Singing Bowls, Bells, and other metal percussion for personal meditation & sound healing. Participants are taught about various types of instruments (history & construction), different mallets & sticks, playing techniques, and how to use the instruments for meditation. They also learn how to select instruments for their personal use. The workshops are about the possibilities inherent in all of us, and finding a personal direction with the Gong & Singing Bowls. If you open up to the Gong, it will reveal itself and its mysteries to you. Investment $20
