The Gong Bath is a mind altering, dynamic meditation experience designed to soothe, inspire, heal and awaken spirit. It begins with the intrinsic harmonizing properties of ancient Himalayan Singing Bowls. The voices of the bowls pave a path into which the transformational sound waves of the Ghia Gong soon blends. This remarkable instrument is precisely tuned to match the vibratory signature of planet Earth in her oscillating dance with the Sun. Near eternal movements resonate at 136.1 Hz. the frequency of the ‘Universal Chord,’ AUM, the ancient syllable of creation. You will be bathed with rising and falling rhythms, tonalities and multi-tonal octaves that are naturally revitalizing in character.
