An Evening of Live Gongs & Meditation with Rachel Ackerman Mon, Dec 4, 2017 at 7:15 pm - 8:00 pm

One of the most powerful sound healing instruments, the gong has been used for ritual, meditation, and celebration since antiquity. Currently, the gong plays an integral role in Kundalini yoga, and is also finding its way into a variety of other yoga and meditation practices. It's no wonder gongs resonate with yogis: their fundamental sound is Om.
In a live gong bath, the sheer spectrum of intricate and unpredictable harmonics invites participants to let go of mind chatter and enter a meditative state. Powerful vibrations reverberate through the body on a cellular level, releasing stress and tension. Listeners report a range of effects, such as deep relaxation, tingling or floating sensations, pulsating colors or other visions, emotional catharsis, creative inspiration, and even just falling asleep. Results vary widely. For an optimal experience, participants enter the space with an open mind, a relaxed state, and a willingness to surrender to the moment.

Experience the powerful energy from a gong meditation session.

7:15 - 8:00 pm 

$12 Early Bird/$15 at the door.  Registration highly recommended.  Members discount does not apply. This workshop is non-refundable and not valid with any other offer.
