The Gong & Meditation

What is Sound Healing and how does it work?

"The Gong produces a strong sound wave, almost tangible to the touch, which stimulates the physical body by influencing the surface of the skin and every cell.

On a physical level, the gong releases tension and blocks in the body, it stimulates a higher functioning of the glandular and nervous system, it increases prana, our vital life force and improves circulation.

The sound of a live gong stimulates circulation while its wide range of frequencies stimulate nerve endings and may prove useful in recovering from injuries in which nerve damage has occurred."  http://www.kundalinirising.org/gong/

"The Gong is one of man’s most powerful and oldest transformational and therapeutic instruments. It has been used for ritual, ceremony, prayer, and meditation since the Bronze Age. While its sound is relaxing and calming, centering and energizing, transforming and healing, gongs have been used in yoga, sound meditation, and vibrational therapy from the distant past to present."

"The gong is one of the oldest instruments of healing and has been used for thousands of years in meditation, ceremony and rituals. Today they are used in yoga and meditation classes, sound therapy practice, group gong bath meditations and in palliative and cancer treatment centers to promote health and well-being.  They are also a wonderful addition at weddings, family celebrations, workshops, and music festivals." http://www.harmonyofthespheres.net/Science_of_Sound.html

"The gong is a sacred and ancient instrument of healing, rejuvenation and transformation.

The Gong produces a strong sound wave, almost tangible to the touch, which stimulates the physical body by influencing the surface of the skin and every cell.

On a physical level, the gong releases tension and blocks in the body, it stimulates a higher functioning of the glandular and nervous system, it increases prana, our vital life force and improves circulation."

"No,  water is not involved in a Gong Bath Meditation"

Instead, you are bathed in the sounds and vibrations of gongs, Himalayan & crystal bowls, chimes, drums, rattles, drones, and voice, as they wash over you. It is a  sound bath that creates profound relaxation.

Gong Bath Meditations alter brain wave patterns from the Beta (waking state) to Theta & Delta (meditative) states. Science teaches that meditative brain frequencies enable us to access our deeper subconscious and superconscious, which are key states for healing."  http://gongbathmeditations.com/what-the-heck-is-a-gong-bath/
