Take some time out from your busy schedules to immerse yourself in the soothing sounds of the gongs
Gong Baths with Dawn Billett and Karen Saunders from Just Breathe Healing Arts
Gong baths are a type of inactive meditation, where you “bathe” in the healing vibrations of sound.
Using sound as a form of healing dates back to ancient cultures. Records of using gongs have surfaced from as early as ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Roman times.
A gong bath, or gong meditation, is a form of sound healing designed to offer:
- emotional release
- pain relief
Gong bath sessions take place either individually or in a group and generally last between 45 minutes and 2 hours.
During a gong bath, participants typically lie down and get comfortable with blankets and pillows. A facilitator then hits the gong, a disc-shaped percussion instrument, using a mallet.
Participants are invited to passively soak up the benefits of the sound.
