The Winter Solstice is a reflective time of year when we prepare to move into the light, not only physically but with our intentions as well. On the actual winter Solstice, utilize this powerful time to uplift your consciousness, balance your energy, and unlock the joy from within. This healing experience begins with gentle stretching and movement (all beginner level), breathing, and meditation to allow the nervous system to prepare for the sound vibrations. Then enjoy an extended relaxation (at least 40 minutes long) while experiencing the powerful healing sounds of two gongs, crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, chimes, and a version of guided meditation known as Yoga Nidra.
The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation, releases us from the torrent of thoughts our mind continuously generates and stimulates our glandular system to a higher frequency of functioning.
“The gong is the first and last instrument for the human mind. There is only one thing that can supersede and command the human mind-the sound of the gong. It is the first sound in the universe, the sound that created this universe. It is the basic creative sound. To the mind, the sound of the gong is like a mother and father that gave it birth. The mind has no power to resist a gong that is well played.” – Yogi Bhajan
