Restorative candle-lit gong bath with guided observation

  • The Narthex, Balham St Mary & St John the Divine, Balham High Road, SW12 9BS London United Kingdom (map)

Candle-lit gong bath at the beautiful Narthex in Balham: a positive, energising and restorative start to the week!

The sounds of the gongs, Himalayan singing bowls & crystal singing bowls are powerful tools for calming, energising, releasing blockages and reducing feelings of anxiety and anger. After a gong bath many people feel a sense of calm and peace, they feel more connected to the world and to others, and also a sense of release and easing of tensions both physical and mental. Attendees have also reported feeling more focused and better able to face up to issues and challenges.

This week we'll be trying out some "guided observation". I will guide you through a really simple, straightforward yet powerful method for silently and *gently* observing where tensions and blocks are occurring, without judging ourselves or getting sucked into negative thought patterns. It takes only 5 minutes at the start of the session.... then the rest of the session is exactly the same as usual. No effort or conscious thinking required whatsoever! In fact effort is positively discouraged!!!

After gently identifying where the block or tension is, let it go.... then all you have to do is lie back, relax and enjoy the healing sounds of the magnificent 38” bronze Paiste tam-tam and the 32" Meinl Mercury Planetary gong, played alongside a collection of exquisite Tibetan singing bowls and four extraordinary crystal singing bowls. 

Open to all.
