Symphonic Gong Fun Facts: The gong is one of the oldest musical instruments in the world. Based on ancient wisdom, the gongs vibrate at the same frequency as the body allowing the body to heal itself. The sounds and vibrations of the gong create deep relaxation and state of meditation by altering brain waves from a Beta (waking state) to Theta & Delta (deep meditation). Science teaches that during these brain frequencies we access our deeper subconscious and super-conscious and they are key states for healing. ♥

New Moon & Chinese New Year Sound Celebration w/ Gretchen & her Gongs/Tibetan Bowls
Thursday February 19th, 7:45pm

Come ride the wave of harmonic sound frequencies and welcome in the year of the goat!
Please join us as we vibrate the energies of the New Moon and the Chinese New Year!
The celebration begins with light breathing and movement to clear the energies of the day, and is followed by the delicious vibrations of the gong and Tibetan Healing Bowls played by Gretchen Bickert.
Gong meditations are considered one of the most deeply healing and restorative meditations.
During the gong meditation emotional transformation is produced as it reduces tension, releases blocks & stimulates circulation. The result is a reorganization of the emotional energy and feelings that are tied into the body structure. The gong changes feelings that are blocked by cutting the thoughts that sustain and recreate the feelings.
All you need to do is let the entire body relax and let the sound of the gong & bowls penetrate the body and guide the mind.
Cost: $12 cash only, drop-in (no pre-pay). Arrive at 7:30 to be sure you have a space – This Fills Up!
