Sat Nam, community!
It has been such an honor to gather and build our sacred sound healing space for this whole year. 2018 has been a challenging and powerful time of transformation and learning for many of us. I know that our gatherings, the power of meditation and the vibrations of sound healing have helped to hold space for each of us in our own unique way. I am excited to seal this year with blessed company for all those who can join.
One of the pieces of our final gathering for the year will be to lay to rest all that we do not wish carry into the New Year. We will also honor anyone who has passed this year and invite peace into our hearts and souls with their passing. If you have a loved one who has transitioned this year and want to bring a picture of them, I welcome you to add this to our altar for he evening’s meditation.
Grace and Love,
The Gong is the Secret Instrument of the Yogi
The gong is a sacred and ancient instrument of healing, rejuvenation and transformation. The Gong produces a strong sound wave, almost tangible to the touch, which stimulates the physical body by influencing the surface of the skin and every cell. There is one caveat when it comes to the gong: Once you enter the gong’s healing sound orbit, you may never want to leave!
What are the advantages of the gong?
According to Akalsukh Singh, founder & executive director of AquarianYoga Center in Montclair, NJ, here are some of the major benefits:
Relieves neck pain, headaches, menstrual cramps, muscle pain, and improves joint flexibility and range of motion
Creates deep relaxation and clears the mind
Immediate reduction of stress and anxiety
Stimulates the glandular system and improves function
Organizes emotional energy
Aids in breaking addictive behavior
Regenerates neurons and their interconnections
Regenerates the nervous system
Clears the aura
Opens and aligns the chakras
Clears the sub conscious mind from negative thought patterns
Strengthens the parasympathetic nervous system
Helps repair damage to the nervous system caused by stimulants (i.e. coffee) and stress
Encouraged integrated healing of body, mind, and spirit
