Monday 10th February 7.30pm/ 10pm

Do you find it hard to meditate? 

Maybe you find it hard to switch off and relax? 

If your mind churns things over and won't give you peace, this is the event for you. 

Laying down under a blanket, you need not do anything but focus on your breath. The sound will take you on a meditative journey, it's a bit like getting a big hug from the universe. 

You're bathed in the sounds (hence the name gong bath) which vibrate through your body; resetting your nervous system (aiding sleep and feelings of being safe), preventing inflammation in the body, inhibiting the stress and pain response, as well as having a positive effect on your heart and respiratory rates. 

People often report deep meditative and peaceful states, clarity of mind, and deeper connections to their intuition as well as peaceful sleep, following a gong bath. 

Join us and see for yourself.
