Psychedelic Sound Journey: Gong Bath with Infinite Spirit Sounds
Join us for an immersive & meditative healing sound journey created with a 38” Sun Gong & 38” Earth gong, shamanic drums, Tibetan singing bowls, hangdrum, flute, harmonica, ukelele, shanti chimes, shruti box, loop station, overtone singing & medicine songs.
As you relax under a blanket, allowing yourself to be guided into an enhanced state of consciousness, the sound waves will carry you on a journey deep within.
Sound has been used in sacred ceremonies & shamanic rituals since ancient times, and can effect and change our brainwaves, allowing mystical altered states to be induced. Psychedelic means ‘mind revealing’. Just as psychedelic medicines can reveal what’s going on deep within ourselves, in Psychedelic Sound Journey we use sound combined with meditative techniques to facilitate an enhanced state of consciousness, where you can become aware of teachings from within, as you create space for emotion, memories & visions to be revealed. Often participants enter a visionary state consistent with shamanic journeying.
Doors open at 19:15, when we recommend arriving, so you have time to choose your space and get settled in before we start at 19:30.
Yoga mats & blankets are provided.
The sound journey itself lasts 1hrs 20 minutes and there will be an opportunity for a cup of tea & time to socialise after the session, so you can feel fully re-integrated before you return to the outside world.
Standard tickets are £15 / Concessions are £11. Unfortunately no tickets will be available on the door.
Psychedelic Sound Journeys was created by Jamie & Phil from Infinite Spirit Sounds, in association with The Psychedelic Society.
The session will be led by Jamie Richards. Jamie is a qualified sound healer & gong practitioner, trained by gongmaster Sheila Whittaker, with the College of Sound Healing. He works with sound & meditative techniques to invoke & facilitate enhanced states of consciousness for healing. Alongside Psychedelic Sound Journeys, Jamie offers individual sound healing sessions & co-facilitates the monthly events ‘All-Night Psychedelic Gong Bath’ & ‘Psychedelic Yoga & Sound Meditation’.
Phil has practised yoga and meditation since 1971. He has studied in the UK and India with the Ramakrisha Vedanta Centre, the Shivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre, the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order and the Rigpa Organisation. He has also trained in ‘dream song’ with the Yoga Nidra network.
Phil & Jamie organise regular sound healing & yoga events in London, and have worked across the U.K & in the Netherlands. You can find out more about their work, see photos from past events and get information about coming sessions @ www.facebook.com/InfiniteSpiritSounds/
Jamie & Phil both have extensive experience working with psychedelic medicines. They have also facilitated on The Psychedelic Experience weekends in the Netherlands organised by The Psychedelic Society, combining yoga & sound healing to enhance participants journeys within.
This session isn’t designed for people to take psychedelics at. However, The Psychedelic Society does organise monthly ‘Psychedelic Experience Weekends’ in The Netherlands - for more information please visit http://psychedelicsociety.org.uk/experience-weekends.
Testimonial for Psychedelic Sound Journeys:
“I recently had the pleasure of attending Psychedelic Sound Journeys. A deeply immersive experience, taking you gradually deeper and deeper into a state of peaceful awareness. Artfully woven, the sounds, chanting and spoken word worked together to significantly deepen my meditation and expand my consciousness. The setting was made safe from the outset, with a focus on full acceptance of the self and a chance to consider my intention for the session. I felt genuine goodwill from these facilitators and wholly supported on my own journey of healing. A must for any explorer of psychedelic consciousness!” Fabien
