We're back! With renewed vigor I will be doing a 6 week experimental residency at Yoga Mandali in #SaratogaSprings for a collection of themed sessions alone, as the Gong Brothers, and with a crew of special guests. The current goal is to be available each Tuesday night with the first #gongbath at 730PM this Tuesday (Jan 10). This is a studio event so registration is required via the Mindbody link. I will add detail to this post soon but wanted to get the placeholder up asap!
See you soon,
Gong Brother Jim
The Gong Lab "Gong Baths" are a meditation experiment with sound and vibration . They use gongs, singing bowls and other equipment to facilitate relaxation and cultivate a rejuvenating experience. During the gong bath, multiple gongs and mallets are used to bring out the full spectrum of beneficial vibrations and frequencies.
Sound has been used therapeutically for thousands of years to soothe and de-stress, as well as to heal and alter consciousness. The listener only has to let go and let the sound of the gong do the work. The experience is effortless and the results can be profound.
To understand how Sound Healing works, it is important to realize that everything in creation is energy, vibrating at different frequencies. Modern physicists continue to find evidence to support this belief. Even seemingly solid inanimate objects like rocks are forms of energy vibrating at lower frequencies. At the other end of the spectrum, light vibrates at a very high frequency. As human beings we are also vibrating energy forms. Since sound travels five times more efficiently through water than air, the human body, composed of over 70% water…..is an excellent conductor for sound and vibrational healing.
When bathed in sound, different areas of the body respond by locking in or “entraining” to the sound and begin to vibrate at the same frequencies. Every part of the body has its own resonant frequency. If there is an imbalance or blocked energy anywhere, the harmonics of the gong stimulate the cells to vibrate in sympathy and to be restored to their highest potential of functioning. Sound vibrations also work on the subtle energy body to help clear energy blockages before they manifest as physical illness or disease. If nothing else, it sounds it's relaxing and sounds cool
