Gong Bath and Journey with Monika Kralj

Gong Bath and Journey with Monika Kralj

Gong Meditation induces a spontaneous meditative state by immersing oneself in soothing sounds of gongs, Himalayan singing bowls and other percussion instruments.

Participants simply lie down, cosy under a blanket, or sit up, allowing the sounds to wash over their bodies.

Gong Meditation seems to work in part by switching off the body’s fight-or-flight stress responses. Basically, it counters the stress response by invoking the parasympathetic nervous system, which slows heart rate, reduces blood pressure and activates healing in the body.

In fact, long and sustained sounds tend to be soothing and relaxing (parasympathetic response) whereas sharp and abrupt sounds tend to trigger alertness and alarm (sympathetic response).

The primary benefit of a gong meditation is that it reduces stress and as stress is one of the top causes for many modern illnesses, it helps us to boost our immune system and therefore reduces the likelihood of dis-ease.

What participants report after a gong meditation is “utter relaxation”, “I slept so much better after the gong meditation”, “experiencing a deep sense of peace”, “soothing my stress away”, “feeling energised”, “there’s something ancient about it, like coming home”.

*** For maximum benefit, we recommend listening to the gong meditation on headphones / earpods. It is important to start off at a low volume and then adjust the volume level on your headphones to suit your preferred highest volume (fast forward to have a quick listen to the video to adjust your volume before you begin). ***
