Gong Bath with Alex Jackson, at The Grand Pavilion

PLEASE NOTE: the location of this event has been changed from Bryngarw Park to the Grand Pavilion.

A gong bath is a meditative event, using sound to invite therapeutic and restorative effects. This session will be filled with different sounds, vibrations and frequencies, perfecting the experience for the mind and body.

This experience can be helpful for anyone who wants to access the benefits from meditation or a period of relaxation. A gong bath is an opportunity to explore what a meditative state is and how it feels. The goal of the experience is to invite deep rest, relaxation and to explore self-inquiry and self-discovery. A gong bath experience is both uniquely personal and collaborative.

Sound can bring balance, relaxation and a sense of wholeness to the body. The harmonic vibrations created by singing bowls, gongs and other overtone emitting instruments are intended to stimulate the alpha and theta brain waves. These waves are associated with deeply meditative and peaceful states that are highly conducive to healing.

Please bring a yoga mat or something similar to lie on. A blanket and cushion are also optional during meditation.

Alex is a gong master and sound therapist with over 20 years’ experience as a therapeutic musician. He understands the pressures of modern society and the detrimental effects on our mental and physical health and strives to offer help in the form of group sound meditations.
