Gong Bath MEDITATION
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
