Kundalini Yoga & Healing Gong Session
19:00 - 21:00
If you haven’t experienced a healing Gong session you may be in for a great treat. It is a very unique and pure experience that is different every time one has a session. In this session two gongs and Tibetan bowls create a sensory impact .
Everything in the universe is vibrating at one level or another. The gong has many subtleties of tones and undertones making its resonance comparable to no other instrument. Through the ages it has been approached with reverence and respect and has been considered a sacred instrument able to channel a piece of the divine. The Gong originated nearly six thousand years ago in Samaria – in the land that is now Iraq – and continues to be used in the Buddhist religious tradition. The Gong is an idiophone, i.e. it resonates with the whole of it’s’ being, producing many harmonics from its fundamental tuned note.
“The sound of the gong is the one thing that can supersede and command the human mind” Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga.
To relinquish our mind for even a moment is pure relaxation. It allows all the stresses to fade and peace ensues.
Much healing takes place during these sessions. On many different levels from physical to spiritual. Any issues, memories or fears that need addressing can arise and clear through these sounds. The fears fade as the sound vibration does, giving one a great nights sleep afterwards and a refreshed mind by morning.
It is an excellent treatment for a whole range of issues from anger to fatigue, dealing deeply with emotional blockages that may cause illness if left unexplored. Stress and depression are also relieved.
This session is in the spirit of Kundalini Yoga and in each session we commence with light breath work, stretching and yoga postures from this tradition to prepare the body and nervous system to gain the highest benefit from the experience. This grounds us and prepares us properly while at the same time creating a safe environment to relinquish and surrender to the experience.
We experience the Gongs lying down preferably in Sivasana, a deep relaxation pose of Hatha Yoga. Eye pillows over our eyes, comfortably covered and we begin to dive deep down into ourselves….
Here is one students’ experience, “I found the gong meditation very healing, starting with a gentle yoga practice allowing you to create a ritual gateway before moving into the meditation. There is no trying or forcing, it allows you to simply be, the gong washes over you starting with a gentle hum till it reaches a crescendo.” Eileen , Cork.
The workshop lasts 2 hours ,from 7 pm until 9 pm
Cost: 20 euro
