They invite you to lie on a blanket on the ground and experience the soothing sounds of gongs and the harp which will resonate over and through your body, promoting well being, relaxation and meditation.
The vibrational sound of Paiste symphonic and accent gongs combined with a rain stick and the deep and holy rhythmic pulse of a Burmese Kyeezee spinning temple bell, enable the rhythm of the body to return to peace, stillness and calm.
This is a relaxing and rejuvenating experience from which you will emerge energised.
It is an opportunity to rebalance the internal rhythms of the body through the healing power of sound and vibration promoting tranquillity.
Gongs are an ancient and non-intrusive method of quieting the noisy mind and clearing the path for meditation.
The gong is a sound maker which replicates the sounds of nature, of thunder, earthquakes, the boom and crash of the waves on the sea. It is different every time it is played and the relationship between the player and the instrument lives in the moment.
The harp is a celestial instrument which plays notes and harmonies, it is tuned and requires highly skilled musicianship. It evokes the heavens, and demands practice and dedication.
Together they are the depths and the heights, the darks and the lights.
The chakra in sanskrit means 'wheel' and refers to energy points in the body . There are 7 main chakra or energy centres which are located from the base of the spine to the top of the head . There are more which exist at another consciousness level.

When your chakras are in balance, your body, mind and spirit are full of vitality and health.
