The Gong Bath

Have you ever attended a Gong Bath? Neither have I and it always peaked my interest. So when I heard there was an event happening not far from my home, I knew I had to go.

So many people consider it a sound massage for the mind and body. Who wouldn’t want that…right?

gongAt the onset of the session, the gong master mentioned that people typically experience a sense of expanded awareness and higher vibrations as the sound of the gong flows throughout the body.  Ok buddy, I thought to myself…let’s turn off the lights and get to it. 😉

Although I was laying down on a cushiony mat with a pillow and a blanket I was fidgety for the first 10 minutes trying to get in a more comfortable position (or was I in resistance?).

Once I found my sweet spot, I began to drift off and enjoy the sound gently reverberating over, around and through my entire body. At one point, I felt emotional and tears were streaming down my face. I breathed through it and continued to enjoy the session.

I woke up feeling light headed yet energetic. I would definitely do it again and am grateful for the experience

Have YOU experienced a Gong bath? Please share.

      1. Same here! That would be perfect.

        Did you know the vibrations can travel well beyond the venue, benefiting people nearby? A dear friend has a large quartz singing bowl, I’ve read the radius at which the vibrations can still be detected from those types of bowls is beyond 25km. She’s a real blessing for her neighbourhood!

  1. I love them! I’ve friends who are Gong Masters, so I’ve had the pleasure of discovering both Gong and Sound baths for the last few years. I agree it’s crazy trying to explain it, it really has to be experienced to be understood. I’ve had the most relaxing experiences when I surrender to it. I’ve seen that each experience is different every time I go as well, especially with each different Gong Master as they all play in such a unique way using a variety of sound/musical instruments. It really helps me with managing and healing the effects of the M.E./CFS on my body, during my Awakening journey. They’re so powerful as a healing tool, not merely just for the pleasure of the relaxation.

  2. How interesting. I can almost hear the sound a gong makes using past experience. Although, today is my 1st time hearing about the Gong Bath, I do know how sounds heal and rejuvenate, especially those emanating from one’s own soul. Tuning is one of my favorites.

    Thanks for sharing. Happy Holidays!!!
