6 Week Meditation and Joyful Wellbeing Course starts May 2022

I am delighted to be offering this brand new meditation and wellbeing course which is massively needed and perfect for current challenging times. Ideal for anyone feeling over stressed, anxious, unmotivated, depressed, lacking social connection.

Firstly it is in-person as we desperately need the real physical and social connection with one another. I for one am somewhat zoomed out and I am sure you are too. Online is here to stay as the world has changed and it has opened up many opportunities for lots of people to access courses and events but it is not the same and we really do need to connect and bond in-person as much as we possibly can. That said I will be offering a similar course online in the future for those who otherwise would not have access to this course.

Meet new like-minded friends. There will be a real social bonding element to this course.

Tech Free Space. We will be taking a complete break from Tech. No computer screens just real people in the flesh.

Meditation and Mindfulness. You will learn and experience various meditations including guided and visualisation during the course. You will learn how to embrace meditation into your daily lives. It is with daily practice that the real magic happens, real shift begins. We will be focusing very much on creating new healthy habits during the 6 week course so that when we finish, you can continue the practice.

Laughter, Joy and FUN. Life can be so very serious at times, so much so that we can even forgot how to laugh and become disconnected from our inner Joy. This course addresses this BIG TIME. There will be a FUN and playful element.

Happiness and Positivity. We will incorporate new practices including keeping a daily gratitude diary! Did you know there are many proven health benefits from a regular gratitude practice. Gratitude is simply taking time to think about all the positive things in your life. Rather than ruminating on the negatives. During the 6 weeks, participants will be encouraged to keep a daily gratitude diary or journal. Gratitude may be one of the most overlooked tools for increasing happiness. Research shows it is the single most powerful method of increasing happiness.

There are numerous benefits to many of these practices that we will be working with.

After this 6 week course you will be able to continue with the new practices at home with an option to refresh with us at a retreat day or further group sessions.

Shamanic Drum and Gong Bath London Camden

I am delighted to announce my new Shamanic Drum and Gong bath. The first one will be on Saturday 26th March 2022 in London Camden Town. 🙏💗 Book here

Some years ago I completed advanced shamanic pathways training which was an incredible journey and training with my teachers at Caer Corhrain. The training was set over a 6 month period with 5 full weekend sessions at the Shamanic Centre in Kent. This was a deep learning experience and at times even painful as the layers were stripped like the pealing of an onion. We learnt so much from crafting our own medicine tools including one of the rattles I often have at my sound baths. Click through to check it out, perhaps you feel the calling too!

I have felt a deep calling from both the Drum and Gong. For years I have worked more with the gong and not really answered the call of the drum although I am noticing how I am gradually being drawn to pick her up more and more during my gong baths. I used to start with a little heartbeat with my drum and now I find myself tempted to keep hold of her for much longer and more recently even some more in the middle and even towards the end of the gong and sound meditation. No more holding back, she is coming out to play, to journey, to aid healing and more.

I’m ready , are you 🙏💗 Join me on Saturday 26th March in Camden town, home of London Gong. More dates and times will follow. I will also have guest drummers joining me. First shamanic inspired Drum and Gong bath Saturday 26th March 6.30pm to 7.45pm. book now at https://bookwhen.com/londongong/e/ev-sz2q-20220326183000 There will be more shamanic inspired events in the following months.

Gong to help you sleep mp3 available now.

I recently created a gong meditation recording with the specific aim to help people to fall asleep. This happened purely by chance as I recorded it initially to help my elderly mum fall asleep despite her aches and pains. It worked a treat!! Both my elderly parents, 88 and 97 years young have been enjoying drifting off to sleep or even just relaxing when they need to with my recording.

If you have problems falling asleep or perhaps you have a very busy mind then this might be exactly what you need. It helps if you like gong sounds. In this recording I am playing my sound creation earth gong with one mallet and several friction mallets which create the space whale like sounds.

It’s called gong to sleep and you can purchase a copy via my gong calendar at https://www.londongong.co.uk/gong-bath-schedule-london/

I will be recording more tracks in the coming weeks to help with deep sleep and relaxation. These will also be available direct from me or via my booking page.

As a reminder gong is back on next week January 2022. Start your new year with a gong bath. An ideal time to set your intentions for 2022. Hope to see you soon.

Gong love and blessings and wishing all my friends and clients a happy, healthy, peaceful 2022 filled with joy.

Gong Flumies

Just received my bear love flumies in the post yesterday. I tested them out on facebook live!! Why not! 🙂

Beautiful spacey sounds. I love working with flumies because you can bring out so many more sounds and tones from the gong. Great bit of advice from Julian gong was to play the back of the gong to avoid marking the gong surface. Here in this example where I am trying out the flumies, I am playing a 26″ Paiste sound creation earth gong. This gong has an uneven surface so probably not the ideal gong for playing flumies but still beautiful spacey sounds. These are definitely going to be my go to flumies, love them. Thanks Bear, amazing, love them.

Gong Baths online on zoom

Coming soon the opportunity to attend a gong bath online from the comfort of your own home.  Snuggled up, warm and toasty from the comfort of your own home.  The really awesome thing about it is that you don’t have to get up and negotiate travelling home after the gong bath.

I am really looking forward to be going online with my gongs sometime within the next few weeks.  I am so excited and i have just invested in some of the tech and sound equipment to enhance the sound for live streaming.

Of course it is not the same as a live gong in person and you won’t be able to feel the physical vibrations from the gongs but it is still very effective an being live, i will focus my energy and intention on those who are receiving the gong.

So if you are ready to get ready for the online sessions, you will ideally need good over ear wired headphones for the best quality sound.  I have heard that if you have really good stereo speakers either side of you, that may be a good option also.  it is a real NO to in ear headphones so please bare this in mind.

Every stressed out city worker needs a gong bath!

I was sent a very interesting article recently from a lawyer friend featured on thelawyer.com entitled “why every stressed out lawyer needs a gong bath” and they do as do other stressed out city workers. What is really needed is regular sessions though to totally benefit.

I had some recent feedback from one of my regulars who mentioned that this is what they need at work and thankfully this is just what I do although not enough of it just yet!  Can you imagine how beneficial it is to end a stressful day in the office with a gong bath, from the desk to the gong meditation space. This is totally a game changer for employees, for businesses, for staff health and well-being and of course productivity would benefit.

The beauty of the gong bath is that no experience or meditation knowledge or know how is required! All the benefits and none of the effort as the instruments do all the work! Deeply relaxing, and for some of my clients the only time they really truly feel completely relaxed, stress free and able to completely let go. Its pretty much like a system reboot for mind, body and soul.

I do believe things are changing but very slowly. One day every workplace will be taking care of their staff with regular gong baths in the office. Right now very forward thinking companies are doing just that! Slowly others are catching on and reaping the benefits ?? Are gong baths the new mindfulness?  Sharing many of the same benefits and more.

Be a forward thinking business who takes staff health, well-being and happiness seriously.  Happy and healthy staff take less time off and are more productive. This too helps to boost employee morale and makes for a pleasant office for everyone who visits or works there.

For regular sessions in your office or workplace in zone 1 get in touch. Preferable rates for a regular session plan.
