Gong Bath

Educational foraging walk with Nick Robinson


Sunday 20th March

Join Bettina Ji for an hour of a deeply relaxing and renewing experience through the sound of the Gongs. A Gong Bath is like a guided meditation of sound and vibration. It calms the mind and reharmonises the entire body system - emotionally and physiologically. Sound is heard not only through our ears, but thought every cell in our bodies bringing in a deep sense of peace and rest.


There is no water involved, nor clothes removed. You only have to let go and let the sound of the gongs do the work. 


You will be lying on the floor. Dress comfortably and bring a mat, blankets and pillow; if you like an eye cover to completely relax. It is important that you feel warm so that you can immerse yourself into this unique experience.
