Healing & Consciousness Workshop
Facilitator: Jain Wells & Aidan McIntyre
There is no better way to learn and understand the exceptional healing capacity of the gong than to experience a shift in one’s own healing and consciousness, and to witness the same in others.
This workshop intensive involves guided self-healing sessions with the gong to help ground the principles of gong sound healing training, with practice time gonging others in sacred community space, and more.
Event time: Mon 4th May 2020 at 4:00pm - Thu 7th May 2020 at 2:00pm
Participants will gain
- Learn the importance of the conscious use of the gong for optimal healing benefit
- Learn specific healing techniques and approaches using the gong.
- Learn practical elements of playing the gong for self-healing, working with others, and guiding groups.
At any given time we each experience issues of many different types, at the emotional, psychological, physical and spiritual levels. The gong sound wave vibrations affect all of these levels when used consciously.
As we learn to play the gong with sensitivity and awareness we open to the changes it may offer us for self-healing, gong meditation, guiding others in focused healing sessions, using the gong an integrative context – with Reiki healing; massage; acupuncture; hypnotherapy; yoga classes and yoga therapy; counselling sessions; physiotherapy and other forms of healing; and group-work with the gong.
The workshop will help you understand about the different types of gongs; how they affect deep change and transformation; how to play the gong well; how to buy the right gong and accessories for your needs – whether for self-healing for home and family use; focused one-to-one healing therapy; small-group therapy; and guiding others in various public contexts with gong sound healing journeys (with other instrumentation); and to create sacred community circles through this powerful sound healing instrument.
Be ready not only for personal transformation but for empowering yourself to help others.
