About the Workshop
Bringing Movement Meditation (Tai Chi Qigong) and a Gong Bath Meditation together for the ultimate wellbeing experience.
These 90-minute sessions begin with Tai Chi Qigong (Movement Meditation), where we perform gentle Qigong movements to encourage our mind and body to relax. Being guided by our breath, we allow it to calm our mind and body, enabling us to find peace and balance.
We then invite you to select a Connection Card. These cards can provide insight and/or focus and can be used to set the intention for your Gong Bath experience.
Then it’s time to relax and connect deeper within, as you lie comfortably on the floor (or seated should you wish) and let the sound of the gongs work on a vibrational level to further release, relax and rebalance.
Immerse yourself in the therapeutic sound of the gongs, together with other percussive instruments such as chimes, singing bowls and ocean drums.
A Gong Bath Meditation is a form of sound therapy and can be effective in achieving a deep state of relaxation. The sound of the gongs and other instruments work not only on an auditory level, but a vibrational one too. This vibrational energy may help remove energy blockages in the body.
Connecting the therapeutic benefits of movement therapy and sound therapy, these 90-minute sessions will enrich you inside and out and from top to toe.
The session starts at 7pm until 8.30pm.
There are mats available, however you may wish to bring your own, together with any blankets, pillows etc for additional comfort. Please also wear something warm and comfortable (such as warm socks, hoodie etc). Layers are often good, so you can adjust as necessary to the temperature in the room as well as your own body temperature.
Our temperature can vary during a session and we want you to remain cosy and comfortable throughout.
We also suggest you bring a bottle of water with you too.

Things to consider before booking
It is worth noting that each person is different and will have a unique, individual experience during a Gong Bath.
Whilst for the majority of people, it is a deeply healing, relaxing and restorative experience there are some cases in which this may not be for you.
If you suffer from tinnitus or any sound related epilepsy.
Are in your first trimester of pregnancy.
Currently taking, or have been receiving, medication for any form of psychological disorder within the last 6 months.
Have a pace maker or any metal plates in your body.
You may experience visuals, such as a dream-like state or seeing colours, temporary physical sensations as you undergo physical healing.
You may experience different emotions, for example feeling blissful or tearful as you undergo deep emotional healing. All of this can depend on what you yourself are bringing to the session, physically, emotionally and mentally.
Listening to the sounds of the Gongs is generally a relaxing and meditative experience. However, it is possible that you may experience a dislike for a certain Gong at a certain time during the session. Usually this means you have healing to do in a certain area, which this Gong can help with.
