Glowga & Gongs
Our Glowga & Gongs Ceremonies are a unique blend of movement and stillness. The suggestion has been made that the asana limb of yoga originated to help the body remain still during meditation.
Yoga exercises evolved thousands of years ago from the need to create a healthy body in order to move more readily to the state of oneness and realization. When the body is cluttered with stress, tension, and disease, this clouds the mind and the ability to connect with the inner self. The physical freedom attained from the Yoga exercises increases one’s ability to sit with silence and joyful observation. – Gaia.com | Yoga Exercises – Defining Asanas (Yoga Poses)
We begin with a seated pranayama meditation to calm the body and gather all of your awareness into a unified state of being. The rhythmic nature of conscious breathing calms the vibratory bodies and allows “higher volumes of oxygen to reach the body’s cells and tissues” (Chopra.com).
From this complete state of awareness, we dive deeper into our corporeal existence. Under the cosmic setting of blacklights, we draw our attention to our skin, muscles, tendons, connective tissues, and depths of our physical experience to recognize where dissonance dwells within our bodies. Through slow, meditative movements, we gently encourage our bodies to relax and let go of stress, providing space within our bodies to open the flow of energies. These gentle, intuitive movements help your container of consciousness become supple and able to relax in Savasana (corpse pose, some say the most challenging of all poses) during the sound healing frequencies. It is an all-levels flow designed to provide a physical surrendering while preparing the mind for the meditation.
Release and relax as you surrender into stillness on your mat and are guided through a Yoga Nidra meditation and into the gong bath. While in this cosmic, healing ether, you have the opportunity to release any stale or damaging burden. The power of the crescendos is where the most amount of release can be experienced as the waves of vibrations wash over and through you, cleansing you of energetic burdens. We will ground you through a variety of earth instruments, inviting you to rejoin your body refreshed, balanced, and free of the unnecessary.
We align many of our Glowga & Gongs events with celestial celebrations such as the Equinoxes and Solstices. These are special and long-honored times that symbolize a shift in our seasons and thus shift in our lives. Join us for one of our Glowga & Gong celebrations.
