The full moon is an excellent time to release what is no longer serving you.  The gong bath enhances the releasing process.  Participants may bring a yoga mat and other items (i.e. pillow, blanket, eye cover, bottle of water) for their comfort.  You will be “bathed” in sound during this session.  The gong sounds will help detoxify the body.  (Be sure to drink plenty of pure water following the session.)  The sounds of the gong will remind you of your inner ability to be in bliss, as well as take you into a state of deep relaxation and peacefulness.   6:30 p.m.  Contact Deb Jennings for more information.  515-371-0725 or soundsforthesouldj@gmail.com.

New Moon Gong Bath
The new moon is the perfect time to create what you want to manifest in your life.  The sun and the moon’s gravitational pull at the time of the new moon can be overwhelming to those who are sensitive to energy.  The new moon gong bath assists us to cope with these energies, and stay connected with our mind, body and spirit, utilizing the moon energy as a healing experience.  The sound of the gong “re-tunes” us on many levels, bringing us into harmony and deep levels of inner peace.  These sounds work on a cellular level as well as an emotional level.  Participants may bring a yoga mat and other items for their comfort (i.e. blanket, pillow, -eye cover, bottled water, journal).  You will be “bathed” in sound during this session.  The gong sounds will help detoxify the body.  (Be sure to drink plenty of pure water following the session.)  The sounds of the gong will remind you of your inner ability to be in bliss, as well as take you into a state of deep relaxation and peacefulness. 6:30 p.m.  Contact Deb Jennings for more information. 515-371-0725 or soundsforthesouldj@gmail.com.

Using Sound to Assist in Healing

USING SOUND TO ASSIST IN HEALING

What are sound vibrations?  Everything that moves vibrates, making sound, whether we hear it with our ears or perceive it through the cells in our body.  All matter is also energy, and is constantly changing shape and form.  Each form has its own frequency.  By changing the vibratory rate, the structure of matter can be changed (the science of cymatics).   When our bodies are healthy, they vibrate in harmony.  If an area becomes diseased, its vibratory rate changes to a discordant pattern.  Sound vibrations gently encourage the body to restore the natural balance of perfect harmony through a principle called sympathetic resonance.  When two objects are vibrating in the same vicinity (i.e. a Tibetan singing bowl and your body) the body tries to match the vibration of perfection, harmony and balance that the bowl emits when played, and the body’s brainwaves match or “entrain” to the bowl’s vibration.  Sound vibrations are conducted especially well through water, and our bodies are made of a high percentage of water.  As we receive these vibrations, the body’s immune, endocrine, circulatory, respiratory, and metabolic systems are positively affected by the vibrations.

If we add intention, the process is further enhanced.  When Deb Jennings plays these instruments, the vibrations you hear are created with an intention of oneness, unconditional love, gratitude, and healing.

Receiving the vibrational sounds of Tibetan and crystal singing bowls, gongs, and other instruments help the body achieve a very deep state of relaxation, allowing one’s inner healer to do its best work.   Resulting benefits include:  decreased stress and anxiety, improved coping abilities, decreased pain levels, decreased respiratory and heart rate, increased self-awareness, improved creativity, and expanded consciousness.

Here’s a short video of Deb on the gong at the World Food Prize Building in Des Moines last month.  It was a dream come true for Deb to play under such a spectacular dome (which is featured in the video).
