Join us for Saturday evenings. We start with warm-ups to wake up the kundalini energy within our bodies followed by one of the meditations as taught by Yogi Bhajan from Kundalini Yoga. Each evening we will work with a different subject. Meditation will cleanse our minds and work with set intentions. Third last and the major part of the evening is gong bath when we allow the gong sound bring the healing and integration of our body, mind, and soul.
The sound of the gong is a powerful healing sound. Gong gives sounds that are a combination of overtones and undertones. It creates deep relaxation, freeing us from the flood of thoughts our mind releases, and stimulates the glandular system to a higher level of functioning. It affects the physical nervous system, not just hearing it through the ears, but the sensation of feeling it on the skin. The gong sound vibrates the energy meridians in the body and brings them into balance. Kundalini energy, which begins at the base of the spine, is released, traveling upwards along the spine through the body. Sound travels and the body picks up a sound. It’s also a cleansing process for the subconscious mind. During the gong meditation, emotional transformation is produced as it reduces tension, releases blocks and 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. During the gong bath let the entire body relax and let the sound of the gong penetrate the body and guide the mind.
