New Moon Meditation and Gong Bath
Saturday October 26, 2019  |  6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Yoga PG, 200-513 Ahbau St

Yoga PG invites you to an evening of drumming and gong sound bath.We are happy to have Rob Richards from DHI Sound Healing and Yoga available to bring the rich tradition of sound healing to the studio. Rob is a recent 200 HR SOYA grad and has been a student of sound and healing for some time now.
Yogi Bhajan quotes:
"The most sublime instrument of the Yogi is the gong.It is a musical instrument,a healing tool for the nervous system
and a cauldron in which you can create blends of qualities of sound that open and develop the inner Self. The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation,releases you from the torrent of thoughts and stimulates the glandular system to a higher level of function."

When asked to explain the effects of the gong meditation and its uses,Yogi Bhajan responded:
"The gong is very simple.It is an inter-vibratory system.It is the sound of Creativity itself.The gong is nothing more
nothing less.One who plays the gong plays the Universe.The gong is not an ordinary thing to play.Out of it came all music,all sounds,and all words.The sound of the gong is the heart of the Word."

Spaces are limited. Tickets are $50 each, with half of all proceeds being given to the local chapter of Canadian Cancer Society.
