Experience the transformative power of sound at our All Night Gong Puja Event on Saturday, the 25th of November.
WHAT IS GONG PUJA?
Gong Puja is a unique experience lasting 7 and a half hours, which is equivalent to 10 x 45 minute baths in the sounds of the gong. This unique experience was created by the Grand Gongmaster – Don Conreaux.
Gongs are very powerful sound tools and their effects are vast. Their sonic depths and washing overtones surround us and work through us to help us to reach a truly relaxed state. They can also bring about true transformation and remove any blockages. Read more about gong puja and brain waves here.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
On the evening of the 25th of November, everybody is welcomed to The Theatre, where we set up our sleeping areas, ready for the night ahead. This extraordinary event will begin with the opening of a sacred circle and serve the heart opening tea, creating safe and supportive space for all participants. We will then embark on a guided meditation led by Monika, helping to calm the mind and prepare for the journey ahead.
After an introduction with singing bowls, and other unique instruments, deepening the state of relaxation, three Sound Healing Practitioners shall guide you through this sonic evening. For a mesmerizing 7.5 hours, our practitioners will gently play a variety of gongs, following the traditional Gong Puja format. This format involves continuous playing of the gongs throughout the night, creating a symphony of healing vibrations that will wash over you, promoting deep relaxation, restful sleep, stress relief, and inner harmony.
As you surrender to the soothing sounds, you may find yourself entering a state of profound meditation or experiencing a profound sense of peace and clarity.
We wake up in the morning for a light breakfast snack together, ready and rested, feeling new for the days ahead.
