Come sit with us for this hour long workshop where you will have two teachers, Paige Lichens and Jawad Abdi, playing their gongs together, synchronized to offer you a powerful sound meditation experience. We will start with some seated meditation to ground, then some pranayama breath and then sit and listen to the sounds. Tea and water are available and you are invited to drink while seated. No experience required.
Gong meditation is a sound therapy technique used to aid in stress reduction and in breaking up emotional blockages that are within us. Gong meditation is a powerful sonic practice that enables one to experience how it feels to step into a dimension and relaxed brain wave state. The benefits of being exposed to the tones of the gong are varied; most notice a major improvement in the quality of sleep, improved coping skills for stress, and a sense of stillness and contentment.
