Deep Gong Bath for Shuniya (The Still Point) with Jade Light

8:00pm - 9:30pm
Other Kalani - see description

Join us for a special Deep Gong Bath for Shuniya (The Still Point). The session begins with ancient Kundalini Yoga Kriyas and Meditations focused on coming into SHUNIYA -- the StillPoint, where the ego is brought to zero and Infinite Healing and Flow prevail. Then relax to an otherworldly journey with a DEEP GONG BATH! Enjoy deep cleansing and healing of the psyche. As the waves of the Original Sound Current wash you clean, you will resonate with pleasure, joy and bliss. It is said that 20 minutes of listening to the Gong is like completing two hours of deep meditation. Considered one of the most powerful forms of sound therapy, the Gong is extremely effective in creating immediate and permanent change on multiple levels.

The event begins promptly at 8 pm; please try to arrive on time so we can tune in together as a group. This event is open to both men and women, adults only (no children).
