 Chocolate Gong
Thursday 7th September 8 – 9.30pm

A deeply relaxing session that will stay with you long after the final strike of the gong.

Open to all levels, all you need to do is turn up, lay down and chill out.

You will be ‘bathed’ in the vibrations of the gong, something that has been used as a healing instrument for thousands of years within the East. Gaining popularity for its ability to take you to a deep relaxed space of both body and mind, the gong activates the parasympathetic nervous system which will put the body into a natural state of balance or homeostasis.

Your healing will be enhanced by a raw chocolate drink that has been prepared to a traditional South American recipe. In this culture the cacao bean is revered as a spiritual superfood due to its ability to produce a naturally elevated feeling, combined with the gong it will lift your energy and allow your body to relax, deepening your enjoyment and appreciation of the gong bath.

There will be a short seated yoga warm up to release surface level tensions in the body before the gong commences. Overall this will be a deeply therapeutic event that will stay with you long after the final strike of the gong and will activate your body’s natural ability to heal and detox, while calming and soothing busy minds.

Quite often participants find that they sleep better and their moods improve for days afterwards, others report the release of emotional pain and mental blockages.

Ben Saxon
Ben is an experience yoga teacher and has been hosting popular gong baths in Essex & London for the last 5 years.

He trained under the renowned UK Gong Master, Mark Swan and uses only hand-made mallets to play the gong which enhances the sound, crystal bowls, rattles and chimes are also used to add texture to the soundscape.

You will need to wear loose clothing that is comfortable to lie down in for extended periods of time. Yoga mats & blankets will be supplied but do feel free to bring pillows or blankets for extra comfort. Make sure you that have a bottle of water with you as the gong will have a detoxing effect and it is good to hydrate fully afterwards.
