Where sound and movement combine
Vanessa O: "Lorraine and Ian ran the Qigong /Gong Bath session. I’ve been to a few Gong Baths but It was the first time I’d been to a Qigong session. Their philosophy on this aspect reminds us that we need to put an end to glorying being busy. As an always busy, business owner, I came away feeling inspired to remember the best things happen when we relax and make time to be still. Thank you Lorraine and Ian"
Bringing Movement Meditation (Tai Chi Qigong) and a Gong Bath Meditation together for the ultimate wellbeing experience.
These 90-minute sessions begin with Tai Chi Qigong (Movement Meditation) session, where we perform gentle Qigong movements to encourage our mind and body to relax. Being guided by our breath, we allow it to calm our mind and body, enabling us to find peace and balance.
We may invite you to select a Connection Card. These cards can provide insight and/or focus and can be used to set the intention for your Gong Bath experience.
Then it's time to relax and connect deeper within, as you lie comfortably on the floor (or seated if you wish) and let the sounds of the gongs work on a vibrational level to release, relax and rebalance.
Immerse yourself in the therapeutic sound of the gongs, together with other percussive instruments such as chimes, singing bowls and ocean drums.
A Gong Bath Meditation is a form of sound therapy and can be effective in achieving a deep state of relaxation. The sound of the gongs and other instruments work not only on an auditory level, but a vibrational one too. This vibrational energy may help remove energy blockages in the body.
Connecting the therapeutic benefits of movement therapy and sound therapy, this really is a 90-minute session which will enrich you inside and out and from top to toe.
Benefits of Tai Chi Qigong / Gong Bath Meditation
Tai Chi Qigong and Gong Bath Meditations are especially beneficial for those who find traditional meditation difficult, as it enables our conscious mind to focus on something: namely your breath and your movements, followed by the vibrations and sounds of the gongs.
Additional positive effects may include:
Reducing stress and anxiety
Reduction of chronic pain
Improved energy levels and reduction of fatigue and lethargy
Improved cognitive function
There are many therapeutic benefits to be gained from movement and sound therapy on all levels - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
