GONG BATH CAMDEN

New Moon Special Laughter and Gong bath experience 11th Aug 2018

Special Active New Moon – Laughter and Gong Bath Experience in Camden – Saturday 11th August 2018  6.30pm-8.00pm
Out with the Old, in with the New. Special extended letting go, release and renewal and restore New Moon Laughter and Gong Bath (laughter release and gong restore and renewal). 
Please come with an open mind to try something a little different. We will be accessing a combination of techniques to help us release using gentle shaking and giggles and laughter.  Laughter can provide a powerful cathartic release for some and can be a very powerful healing tool.
The shaking and laughter will help us to release what does not serve us, the laughter will aid us in opening and reconnecting to joy, connecting to one another and then being in a very open and receiving space for the gong and other therapeutic instruments to work their magic. This is an extended one and a half hour session which will include a full gong bath. 
Odette will be working with various therapeutic laughter techniques including laughter yoga.  We will experience gentle movement and shaking during this session along with extra intra-abdominal pressure from extended deep and hearty laughter.

Review 

Michelle – An amazing experience. Was quite stressed before and came out feeling completely relaxed and lighter. Odette has a very gentle manner about her and provided a very safe and enjoyable space. Had tingly feelings and a sense of calm for days afterwards. A good all round mind, body and soul workout. I fully recommend this experience to everyone.

Gong bath took me to orgasmic state of ecstasy!!!
