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. 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!!!

  2. 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.

      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!
