Rejuvenate with a Healing Gong Sound Meditation

Saturday, May 13, 4:00–5:30pm

Romy Valdez


There are few instruments like the Gong that can heal us through its purification properties of sound vibrations. In this energy field, the beginnings of removing all blocks can occur allowing you to reorganize and rebalance. This workshop will include transformational methods that include yoga and breathwork to prepare us for the vibrational healing energy of the Gong.

Some benefits of gong meditation include:

  • Conducive to healing and transformation
  • Induces a state of meditation by calming the mind
  • Reduces the internal dialogue
  • Creates a state of relaxation and release of tension
  • Stimulates the circulatory and glandular systems
  • Rebalances the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies
  • Helps clear energetic and emotional blockages
  • Regenerates the parasympathetic nervous system
  • Awakens higher states of consciousness
  • Bathes you in a cascade of healing sound — claims to shift the brain from Beta (waking state) to Theta or Delta (meditation) through the vibrations of the instrument.

Many people report receiving a deep sense of tranquility, reduced stress and improved sleep after a Gong Sound Meditation.
