Admission $10

The gong bath gently immerses guests in soothing and supportive gong vibrations as Ken cultivates a relaxing atmosphere for mind, body, and spirit.

The event will begin with a brief introduction and explanation of the effects of sound on the human body. Guests are encouraged to bring a yoga mat or blanket/sleeping bags, cushions, pillows, and eye covers to create their own comfortable sound immersion nests.  
For those who are experiencing a gong immersion for the first time, the sound is natural and unamplified.  It is soothing and can have therapeutic effects on body, mind and spirit. Ken uses sound therapy in his massage/energy practice, and it’s a core element in sound healing offerings occurring across the globe.

The first half of the event will be a 60-75 minute gong immersion. A 15-20 minute intermission will permit people to stretch, use the facilities and exit if desired. During the break, the gongs will be re-arranged to create a vortex of sound space where individuals will be invited to quietly and orderly enter the center of gong vortex space for a brief, specific sound immersion between the seven wind gongs and your body’s energy field.
