Gong Sound Journey – Supported by Cacao

6 July @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Elevate your energy through the magic of Group Sound Healing. Picture the human body as a musical instrument, each organ, bone, and tissue resonating in an unceasing dance of vibration. And here’s the marvel: your body thrives on sound, embracing it with a profound eagerness. Sound ripples through your very being, carried by the currents of water within you. These vibrations operate like a mystical technology, ushering you into a harmonious residence, and restoring your equilibrium and exiting a sound healing session gifting you with a visceral embrace of nurturing. You depart with a newfound sense of wholeness, centering, and inner tranquility.
In this offering, We will begin with an offering of cacao followed by breathwork to center your energy channels before embarking on a guided sound voyage by Jenine, orchestrated with an array of sound healing instruments. These include the Paiste Symphonic Gong, Chau gong, Tibetan singing bowls, the ocean drum, tuning forks, Koshi bells, and the dance of wind chimes and tingsha. These vibrations evoke a meditative, dreamlike state, often birthing visions, memories, and physical sensations that shine light on areas of your life in need of tender attention.
How Does Sound Healing Work? Therapeutic instruments such as Tibetan singing bowls and gongs stimulate the alpha and theta brain wave frequencies associated with meditative, clear, and peaceful states of mind. Alpha brainwaves are present during light meditation, daydreaming, and deep relaxation. Theta brainwaves are present during REM dreaming sleep, deep meditation, and hypnosis. These states are considered the gateway to the subconscious mind, where heightened creativity, depth of imagination, and access to the subconscious realms facilitate deep-seated healing.
Therapeutic sound also impacts our nervous system, slowing the heart, brain, and respiratory rates down to induce a state of deep relaxation and peace. When the brain waves and body are synchronized, balance can be restored and stress can be released. The gong, being the most resonant tone-producing instrument known, vibrates in a manner that resonates within all the cells of the body. Human beings, in the fullness of health, are akin to the gong—fully resonant. Full resonance optimizes cellular health, intuition, and inner peace.
