GONG SOUND BATH Guided Meditation

8 – 9:30pm
Exchange: £25

Led by Jackie this is a regular event at Optimum You studio. A gong bath (meditation), also known as a Sound Bath, or Sound Massage is a fully clothed relaxing and blissful experience where you ‘bathe’ in the healing sound waves – no baths involved! You simply lie down on mats, wrap yourself in a blanket, head on a pillow, close your eyes and relax.

What to expect: We start with a guided meditation, sometimes gentle yoga or breath work, before starting an hour or so of playing the gongs.

The benefits: High quality gongs produce sound waves to release tensions in the body & mind, strengthen the nervous system and create physical shifts by lowering blood pressure & the stress hormone cortisol. These instruments facilitate an altered state of consciousness (ASC) to improve self-awareness, reduce stress & create a deep sense of peace & wellbeing. Sound therapy immersions are especially helpful for people who struggle to “switch off” or meditate as the trajectory of sounds induce states of profound physical relaxation.

Meditation helps us to cope with stress, reduces the pain reflex and changes the way we perceive the world around us. This can take us from an anxious state to one of more grounded calmness.

Come dressed for comfort and bring a blanket or duvet as your body temperature drops when you are laying still. Its recommended to bring a bottle of water to keep you hydrated.
