Introductory Gong Workshop
Saturday 16th June 2pm-7.30pm
This workshop is open to all who are drawn to the magnificent sound of the Gongs; maybe you have been to a gong bath and are curious to learn more, or perhaps you already play and are looking to refresh your techniques? The workshop is also suitable for those interested in becoming a Gong practitioner or purchasing a Gong for personal practice. Beginners are welcome and no previous experience necessary. We will cover both theoretical subjects and practical applications such as - An Introduction of the use and methodology of gongs for Sound Healing - Different types of gongs and their uses in gong baths - Fundamental strokes & techniques - Playing gong for gong baths & Puja - Body resonance and subtle body resonance, the concept of brain wave entrainment and alternate states of consciousness.
Following the workshop, you will have the chance to put your training into practice! All participants from the workshop will have the opportunity to take turns to stay and play in the All Night Gong Puja. Playing the very finest symphonic and Planetary gongs under the guidance of experienced sound practitioners.
All Night Gong Puja
Saturday 16th June 10pm- Sunday 17th June 7am
The Gong Puja is a sacred celebration and sound meditation created by Yogi Bajan and developed by Grand Gong Master Don Conreaux consisting in 10 x 45minute continuous gong baths for the equivalent of 7,5 hours. Yogi Bhajan believed that the Gong was the most powerful tool for healing and taught that 10 consecutive sessions would clear any blocks. During the puja we sleep through the night into the early morning bathed in the healing sound vibrations. Immersed in the sound of the gong to repair, cleanse, release tension and blocks. A deep state of relaxation may be experienced, inner stillness and deep healing can occur. We meditate, or sleep, possibly a sleep like no other; possibly asleep as though awake in a dream.
During the puja you are invited to make yourselvs comfortable either lying down, or seated. The Well Garden will provide yoga mats, blankets & bolsters -However you are invited to bring all the extra comfort you might need: an extra soft comfortable mat/duvet, your own cushion or blanket. Please wear comfortable clothing, or your favourite pyjamas!
A nourishing vegan breakfast will be included in the morning and teas will be available throughout the night.
