Sound Healing Workshops are often a part of our retreats.
Our dear friend, Preet Kaur joins us regularly with her Gong Baths and the workshops are beautiful, very healing experiences.
Saira Francis often uses Crystal and Tibetan Bowls as part of her yoga sessions and sometimes uses 7 beautiful Crystal Bowls to create a Chakra Balancing sound session.
What to expect from a Sound Healing Gong Bath with Preet.
Preet is a Kundalini Yoga Teacher and she will prepare you for the sound healing session with meditation and mantra. In Kundalini Yoga, meditations are performed for up to 11 minutes at a time to really integrate deep into the consciousness. Some mantras are in Sanskrit the ancient language of yoga, but words are simple and Preet will guide you into how to speak or sing them, sometimes Preet will sing ‘call and response’ where she sings a line and you return back as a group to make a longer mantra more easy to repeat. There is no pressure to join in any mantra/chant you can say it mentally to yourself if you prefer.
Once you are open and ready to receive the sound healing you will simple lie back and enjoy, there is usually at least one full hour of sound healing so plenty of time to really be nourished!
Sometimes we ask you to bring a blanket or pillow to rest on if you are attending a retreat day but this will all be requested in an email if needed, if you are joining a residential retreat all is provided.
After the sound healing sessions there is a period of silence to lie and enjoy the vibrations of the gong or bowls and then we sit up for a final closing meditation and simple chant.
More about the Gong.
The gong is a sacred and ancient instrument of healing, rejuvenation and transformation.
The gong is the greatest synthesizer in the world. It synthesises everything so that it comes into functional harmony. To heal is to make whole, so where there is functional harmony and holistic resonance, healing takes place naturally.
On a physical level, the gong releases tension and blocks in the body, it stimulates a higher functioning of the glandular and nervous system, it increases prana, our vital life force and improves circulation.
The gong also works deeply on the mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. The gong purifies and quietens the mind. It literally cuts through the linear mind and clears the clutter from the subconscious mind to reveal the radiant and authentic self. It has the capacity to bring us to our neutral mind that is wise and non-judgemental. It helps turn the mind to zero, a state of stillness where innate wisdom can be accessed. Another benefit that comes from the mind stilling, is repair at the DNA and cellular level allowing deep healing to take place.
Join Preet Kaur for a sacred sound healing meditation. We will prepare our self to receive the healing vibrations of the gong with breath, mantra and relaxation exercises, then all there is left to do is to lie down and allow the healing waves of the gong to penetrate deep into our being allowing healing to take place.
Preet Kaur is a Kundalini Yoga teacher, sound healer, musician, singer, acupuncturist and Reiki Practitioner. She teaches regular Kundalini Yoga classes, one to one sound healing sessions and facilitates workshops and retreats in sound healing and Kundalini Yoga in the UK and abroad.
