Can gongs really work online?
Yes! Just check out the testimonials sprinkled through the site and linked below. When you join a sound bath, gong meditation or any other kind of sound session in the ‘real’ world, you are benefitting from both the sound AND the vibrational aspects of the session. In a digital environment, although you are not physically receiving the vibrations, you are still able to receive ALL the experiences of the sound itself. Which is the main magic!
The sounds slow your brainwaves down from beta to theta level, which has the effect of dropping you into a trace-like, meditative state. Depending on your own personal practice you may find this simply a deep restful and relaxing state, or you may experience ‘journeying’, astral travel or a higher consciousness connection. Just LISTENING to the sound, tuning in with intention, is enough to take you on your own meditative experience.
I am offering a range of different online sessions (check out the next panel) so you can choose exactly how you want to craft your own journey with sound. On the technical front, creating the same sort of space we would do in person will definitely help – a cosy, quiet area, candles, oils, an eye pillow and no distractions are all part of connecting with sound sessions online. Similarly, good headphones or speakers will make difference. Check the FAQs for more details.What are people saying?
