In the simplest terms, the vibrations of a gong bath awakens innate wholeness and guides the body to a state of greater balance and harmony on a cellular and spiritual level.
There’s scientific and metaphysical evidence in support of this ancient healing practice. Bathing in the vibrations of the gongs creates an ocean of resonance that is profoundly relaxing, and its sound gently reverberates over, around and through the entire body to calm, relax and soothe.
Typically, the listener’s heart rate slows, blood pressure drops and breath is restored to its natural rhythm. The gong induces a holistic resonance in the body and a spontaneous meditative state in the mind, resulting in a sense of expanded awareness and wholeness.
Only in the past few decades, with the advent of functional MRIs, has it been able to scientifically document the mind-body connection.
The gong bath induces a state which activates the parasympathetic nervous system to balance our often over-taxed sympathetic nervous system.
The gong has been used throughout history as a ceremonial and healing instrument. Sources describe its use in 4,000 B.C. to as far back as 16,000 B.C.
The gong bath is not included in the Dabble Retreats
