Gong Bath Concert

We are delighted to offer A Sonic Symphony of Sound givenby yoga teacher and Sound Healer, Maureen McKain.

On Sunday 11 September approximately one hour at 4pm. $20. Please book and pay by emailing hello@sunsalute.co.nz or phoning Katie on 021 1207 131

 

A SONIC SYMPHONY OF SOUND

The listener is taken on a journey immersed in the sustained waves of sound tones & harmonics of the Symphonic Gong,Himalayan Healing Bowls, Tibetan Singing Bowls, Pipe Dreams, Sansula, Rain Sticks, Drums & new from India, the Swarsangam.

The sacred sounds restore, rejuvinate & nourish all systems of the body inducing deep relaxation & an expanded sense ofawareness.

The Gong is the ultimate sound healing tool as it has the broadest range of tones of any instrument when played sensitively,this vast range of sound bathes the human form & retunes us on every level-physical, mental, emotional & spiritual- thus bringing us back into harmony.

Some people just have a very peaceful experience & feel re-energised & re-charged. Others go more deeply & may have visionsof past life experiences. Some people have profound healing experiences. Others are so relaxed they drift off to sleep or to other dimensions.

Maureen McKain Sound Healer/Yoga Tutor has trained with Don Conreaux Grand Gong Master of the World from New York.
