Simona from Gong Bath & Tibetan Bowls Therapy will be joining us to help us go deeper into the New Moon Meditation, it’s a wonderful sound vibration practice.

IMG_1014

Gong Bath is a therapeutic recital of sacred sounds, is a meditation guided by the sound of the Gong and Tibetan and Crystal Bowls.The planetary Gongs used during the concert are Venus Gong and Earth Platonic Gong, played together they unify the Greatest Love.

The planetary gongs are instruments calibrated on the specific frequencies of the planets, set to produce harmonious sounds with healing effects on mental, emotional, physical level and consciousness. The sounds of the Gong can be likened to the primordial sound that formed the basis of the Universe.

Among the many benefits of the Gong concert, the most important are:

*Stimulate intellectual, psychic and visualization abilities

*The expansiveness of consciousness beyond the physical body

*Enhance imagination and the ability to perceive and project

*Bring artistry and compassion to your relationships

*Amplify creativity

*Harmonize with the vibration of the Universe

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

After participating in more yoga classes and events this year than in my entire life, I am yearning for the opportunity to attend a professional retreat. The opportunity to grow my practice, learn from talented students and teachers, and immerse myself in this gorgeous Red Feather Lakes sanctuary is the dream of a lifetime! Sara
