About the event

The Gong Meditation is so much more than just gongs. It’s gongs,

singing bowls, bells and other percussion instruments, combined into a

pulsating soundscape that is designed to help you slow down and invite

stillness within. There’s no hurry, no destination—only the breath and

being in the moment. The vibrations can help with stress, fatigue,

depression, anger, and blocked energy. This is personal self-care.
