So I have just arrived home after my first gong bath and I really enjoyed it. Great experience and I will definitely be going again.
It started with some mantras followed by a meditation. Very interesting, like nothing I have done before. A very simple one word mantra led the meditation which involved bringing the hands close together (but not touching) and then quickly moving the hands apart in a repetitive motion. Like playing cymbals I guess. And breathing in time with it. Not easy and quite the workout. Had to be a least 10 mins. And then straight into the gong bath. At first I was distracted my noises outside but pretty quickly lost those. It took a while to really get into it, but I can honestly say that for about 5 mins towards the end I didn’t know where I was. I was in orbit I think It felt great. I’ve only had that feeling a few times before with meditation. It’s really great when it happens. And it ended with mantras and harmonium. It was really good and the woman leading was brilliant. I will book again for September for sure.
And I spent a couple of hours in a room with 12 people I didn’t know doing something completely new. That’s a pretty big deal for me.
