About the event
What to Expect
We’ll start with a brief discussion on the healing attributes of Planet Gongs and discuss how the frequencies impact the energetic body where the Chakras reside. We’ll focus our practice on opening and balancing the 3rd eye, the control center for the energetic body and the seat of intuition and discernment.
You’ll be guided through several gentle Yoga poses that will help lengthen the spine and release any tension stored in the body. Easy for everyone, these poses have been selected to stimulate each of the 7 Chakras, but we will pay particular attention to the 6th Chakra, the 3rd eye.
Then we’ll use our breath to explore a simple but powerful ancient Taoist breath exercise known as the Microcosmic Orbit. We’ll visualize our breath as energy traveling up the spine on the inhalation and then down the spine on exhalation. We'll pair the breathwork with a simple 6th chakra affirmation - “I open myself to my inner light” - Together, the asanas, pranayama and mantra will put us in an optimal state to receive the transformative frequencies of the Gongs.
Additionally, you'll receive a 6th chakra crystal gift Blue Goldstone. This tumbled crystal can sharpen the mind, increases intuition and discernment, boosts energy, and can dispel feelings of anxiety and depression. Your crystal gift has been bathed in saltwater and dried in moonlight and is ready to be made your own by placing it directly on your skin (forehead) during the Gong Meditation. The frequencies of the 6th Chakra Gong (Uranus) will be amplified by the Blue Goldstone during the Gong Meditation, opening the mind’s eye, increasing our intuition and access to our inner light.
Once in savasana, the six planet Gongs will escalate the sound and intensity, leading you on a cosmic journey through deep space, all designed to leave you feeling tuned, refreshed and connected to your intuitive personal power.
The event concludes with sweets and community.
