Gong Bath MED­I­TA­TION

Spirit and Destiny - - Trending -

CU­RI­OUS WHAT the big deal is about this med­i­ta­tion that uses sound and vi­bra­tion to cleanse you on the in­side, both emo­tion­ally and phys­i­o­log­i­cally?

Sat­isfy that cu­rios­ity by head­ing to Yoke, in Dal­ston, Lon­don, to take part in Leo Cosendai’s Gong Bath Med­i­ta­tion on Jan­uary 20th.

A gong bath med­i­ta­tion is a holis­tic and yo­gic prac­tice. The gong pro­duces har­monies and tones, which give you the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence al­tered states of con­scious­ness, where the mind is to­tally aligned with the body in a re­laxed and peace­ful state.

Just as a body mas­sage works out tight and knot­ted mus­cles, the ‘sonic mas­sage’ of a gong bath works out emo­tional is­sues that we need to re­lease in or­der to move for­ward in life.

Leo Cosendai has made it his mis­sion to make med­i­ta­tion and sound baths ac­ces­si­ble. He has helped thou­sands of peo­ple trans­form their lives through a com­bi­na­tion of sound, yo­gic mind­ful­ness and breath work.

Leo’s two-hour work­shop in­tro­duces you to what sound can do for the mind and body, teaches breath work and uses guided vi­su­al­i­sa­tion as a warm-up to the gong bath med­i­ta­tion.

‘Peo­ple then lie down on their mat and I lead them through a gong sound bath, which in­cludes my voice as well as other per­cus­sive in­stru­ments that help to trig­ger al­tered brain wave states.

‘Peo­ple have all kinds of ex­pe­ri­ences, in­clud­ing deep sleep, eu­pho­ria and trauma pro­cess­ing,’ says Leo, who also has a suc­cess­ful med­i­ta­tion app (third­ear.com) that com­bines sooth­ing sound­waves and words. leo­cosendai.com
