Good Vibrations Sound Healing Meditation | Christine Chase
The Gong is named after the sound it makes-in essence it "is" what it "does". It is an engine of power releasing tone resonance and complex harmonics that are translated to the recipient.
For thousands of years the gong has been used for sound healing. The vibrations of the gong enter the body creating automatic relaxation and the possibility of deep meditation, It is in this relaxed state that healing occurs.
The gong rejuvenates the nervous system, reduces stress, opens the heart chakra, releases fear, removes toxins and cleanses the body of all that is not needed. Sound frequencies can effect us on a cellular level.
I first experienced the gong in a Kundalini Yoga class and captivated by the sound began researching the gong and sound healing. I began playing the gong for a beloved diagnosed with cancer. It brought us indescribable peace and reprieve from this devastating disease. My personal experience inspired me to share this amazing gift with others.
I offer free private or group healing sessions for cancer patients. Second Sundays @ 1:00 pm $25
