Anyone for a Gong Bath or two ?
I first heard of a Gong Bath when I applied to visit Gaunts House Community as a prospective member a few years ago and was invited to visit for a weekend. I very excitedly looked through the itinerary and to my horror were the words Gong Bath ! I had visions of some sort of weirdo hippy group bath so it was time to ask Master Google. I now had more of an idea what it was about and I sure was pleasantly surprised.
I was not to be disappointed as , a hippy dude artist and musician by the name of Stu was Gong Master. Stu pictured below !
I have never quite experienced anything like it, the gong just put me into a deep trance like state of super beyond words relaxation and I would literally float away, away form the room, away from any worries to a state of bliss. A truly deep and powerful experience for me and exactly what I needed.
Several years later and after many many gong baths, I have experienced some profound gong sessions in particular with my visits to Clophill this year and I think that is when it really got me big time. At the time of my visit, I felt very drawn to the power of sound anyway and was thinking about getting a drum and had even begun looking for a Reiki Drum course. My head was saying DRUM, for so many reasons, nice , small, easy to carry and transport, powerful, very powerful but my Heart was drawing me to the GONG, the Gong was calling and I just knew that the Gong was to be a part of my path.
I had one Gong session at Clophill with Roz in an underground chamber where a ley line runs through so a real power spot. There was a point where I could no longer hear the gong but what I heard were Church Bells which was a really strange experience because the Gong had never sounded like that previously. I was the only person during that session who had heard the Church Bells although at a later gong bath in the underground chamber another person had also heard the church bells and she too was seated where I was !
I now am the proud owner of my own Paiste Gong. I found Sheila Whittaker who came really highly recommended was running an intensive gong training weekend in Devon and I was off there like a shot. I know this is just the beginning of a new journey for me and I look forward to introducing the Gong into my healing work in the New Year where I will be offering personal gong baths with Reiki.
Back to Gaunts House, my friend Michelle is now over in London to offer our group Gong Baths in December. We have a small and delightful venue which is very cosy, just like we like things. Small and close up session with the powerful Gong.
