Explore Sound Healing Group and New Moon Gong Bath

We will explore various sound healing techniques to help us achieve deep relaxation, release tension and stress, expand consciousness, open the heart and heighten awareness and connect with our own infinite source of inner peace. This month we will explore the gong further with a 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 stay connected with our mind, body and spirit, and utilize 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. Attendees will form a circle and will lie on their backs with heads toward the gong. 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. to 8:00 p.m. Contact Deb Jennings for more information. 515-371-0725 or jnnngsmus@aol.com.
