Psychedelic Gong Bath
- Mon 18th Jun 2018, 8pm – 10pm
- The Round Chapel Auditorium, Glenarm Road, London, UK
- Facebook event
Psychedelic experience without psychedelics.
As you lie on a mat on the floor, gongs, Himalayan singing bowls and overtone singing will be used to weave a tapestry of sound.
The vibrations create a feeling of beeing 'bathed' or carried away into the space, with participants variously reporting powerful bodily sensations, a deep meditative state often accompanied by rich imagery and visions, or feelings of timeless nothingness, ecstasy and bliss.
To get the best out of the experience, please:
* KEEP YOURSELF WARM & COMFY - wear warm clothes, thick socks and bring a sleeping bag + mat/mattress to lie down on. During the session the temperature of the body often drops, and the chapel space might feel a bit cold on cooler nights, so please come well prepared.
* COME WITH NO EXPECTATIONS and with an open mind.
* POSITION YOURSELF WITH YOUR HEAD FACING THE GONGS.
* WEAR AN EYE MASK or put a scarf on your face to cover your eyes which can enhance your visual sound experience.
* CEREMONIAL CACAO works in a beautiful synergy with the gongs, intensifying their effect on subtle and physical energies in your body. It will be available before the beginning of the session and after (£5 cash).
* KEEP WELL HYDRATED afterwards.
* TAKE YOUR TIME TO DIGEST THE EXPERIENCE - give yourself a bit of time for introspection (you can put some insights in your notes) and to share your experience with others over a cup of herbal tea (free).
