GongLab is best known for its deeply transporting blend of guided visualization, healing sound, hypnotic percussion, and otherworldly vocals. Each session carefully creates a protected space to disengage from stress and pain, so that deep relief, bliss, and nurturance of reconnecting with the body’s innate revitalizing energies can be experienced.

The evening begins with a direction of intention and guided meditation as participants, reclining comfortably on the floor, are ushered into a spiraling cocoon of luminous sound created by gongs, cello,Tibetan bowls, drums, bells, and chimes. The shimmering reverberations of the Earth Gong create sound pressure waves that travel through the connective tissues which form one continuous network into all parts and systems of the body down to a cellular level. These multi-tonal frequencies facilitate the movement of “chi” or “prana” in the body and initiate the release of blocked energy that can often manifest as fear, fatigue, depression, or illness. As this energetic re-calibration takes place, a reorganization of inner resources occurs which can help us transcend the challenging situations in our daily lives and access new templates for being.

Participants will lay comfortably on the floor for most of the experience. Please bring a mat, blanket, pillow, and any items in support of your deepest clearing and relaxation.

For some the experience is meditative, for others, it is emotional, even transcendent, but in all circumstances, it is a powerful and unforgettable event.
