Gong Meditation

Gong Meditation

$10-$20 Sliding Scale. Registration preferred. Every Last Saturday of the month!

Gong meditation is a unique type of sound practice that involves using therapeutic gong sounds and vibrations to bring about healing. This practice is also sometimes referred to as a “gong bath” because participants are “bathed” in meditation gong sound waves. The goal of “gong meditation” is usually therapeutic, whereas mindfulness meditation has many therapeutic benefits, but its deeper goal is awareness and non-judgmental appreciation of the present moment.

Sound therapy has long been used to manage a broad range of health conditions. The treatments are based on the understanding that all forms of matter – including our body’s cells – vibrate at different frequencies. Factors such as stress, depression and disease cause cells and organs within our bodies to vibrate at non-optimal frequencies.

“When the plants hear someone, even just one person, listening once again they like it very much. So that's a wonderful offering in itself." Eliot Cowan, Plant Spirit Medicine


Plant Spirit Medicine marks the return of a very ancient form of healing. Our ancestors, who lived so connected to the land, knew that the natural world was infused with awareness and spirit and that the spirits of the local plants were joyful to join in friendship with the people.

Here in this season of abundant spring and this time of vibrant expression of the natural world, join us for an offsite day of stories about the Plant Spirits and the deep healing medicine that comes from our green friends. During this experiential program, we will spend time in nature, learning the language of plants, how to engage with them and hear their voices. Together we will explore the wisdom of the plant people and the messages they share with us. Refreshments and a pot luck lunch.
