We invite you to come and experience a special night of Sound Healing / Meditation - the Gong Puja.
The Gong Puja lasts about seven and a half hours , which is the equivalent of ten 45-minute Gong Baths.
You will be immersed in the gentle sound of the gongs , giving your body the opportunity to enter a deep state of relaxation. The vibrations will wash over you, unblocking, cleansing and freeing you from the stresses and strains of everyday life.
During the Puja, you will lie down, meditate and sleep, or you may choose to stay awake or drift in and out of sleep throughout the night as the sound of the gongs gently wash over you.
We invite you to join us at 9pm and bring some vegetarian food made with love to share with others in the morning.
Come with an open heart, hugs and smiles, ready to join the puja and together create a beautiful, loving, sharing experience. The Puja will start at 10 pm.
Dress in loose , comfortable clothing (preferably white). Bring your sleeping bag, pillows and a slim foam mattress - whatever you need to be comfortable and warm.
The Puja will finish about sunrise and you are welcome to stay and share your experience, before leaving about at 7.30am.
Playing gongs at a low level continuously for about 7.5 hours will take you on a "journey to the world of live sound, the dimension of primal, conscious sleep and time out of time ...".
To secure your place with us, please pay on the day of booking.
Places for the Puja are limited and we expect this event to sell out fast.
The cost for this event is £50 per person which is non-refundable.

HISTORY OF THE GONG PUJA CREATION
Don Conreaux (Grand Gong Master) - THE REAL STORY OF the 45-minute Gong Bath & the 10 linked together in THE ALL - NIGHT GONG PUJA.
"It was in 1972 while in my 2nd year as founding director of the Nanak Dwara Teacher Training Ashram in Phoenix Arizona that Yogi Bhajan asked me to take care of his older son Rambir while he was going to high school in Phoenix.
Yogiji then told me that Rambir wouldn’t talk when he was a young child. So, he gave him a 45-minute full out gonging, and then happily afterward he would never stop talking.
Yogiji then confided to me that a minimum of ten 45-minute full gong tone immersions in a row could cure practically anything.
It was apparent that 10 immersions in total gong sound if done 10 days in a row was a bit impractical for most. So, I connected them together in one all-night Gong Puja and now it is standard procedure all around the world for our gong masters.
In the short nights of mid-summer 10 continuous full 45-minute gong tone-bath immersions will equal 450 minutes or 7 and a half hours/…/
I recommend that the all-night gong pujas be kept at a moderate volume so that the body may absorb the sound while being rejuvenated during sleep. While the single 45-minute gong bath therapy must reach full volume into the 7th layer of the blue ethers for de-materialization of the mundane consciousness.
It is in this gong sleep that the 24-hour innate consciousness is able to be super-conducting while the ego is in suspension''.
"I just wanted to write to thank you for what you gave us on Saturday night through your playing. I was nervous and out of my comfort zone coming, but you naturally made me feel at ease. I have a lot of stress in my life right now and I was amazed at how emotionally stronger I felt on Sunday. I actually had a day at university on Sunday - I had been worried I would be tired but I was energised and had a very positive day. Thank you to the 3 of you for choosing to spend your time to help others". Lauren
"This All Night Gong Bath – The Puja practice immersed you into the gentle sound of gongs, the vibration of which wash over you, unblocking, cleansing and freeing you from the stresses and strains of everyday life. The first one was incredible, yet challenging .Th second one was magical, filled with so much love .Abundance of love. Kept moving through the night, catching myself with sweetness that I’ve kept placing my hand on the heart as if I wanted to reassure the physical body, of what the subtle body was conveying. The experience did not felt like a dream but a reality, just in a different dimension. Waking up with no thoughts just pure love towards someone with no demands, no expectation but understanding is the highest energy I’ve ever felt in my life. So my dear ones, even if you lost someone who is not among us, even if you are far away from anyone you sincerely love family, friends, partners, teachers, pets, mentor, even if are not speaking to the one you love the way you used to every day, isn’t it simply comforting and soothing to know that once you close your eyes and connect to your precious heart, you can be with them and you can send them all the love you have, wishing them well, whispering softly l all sorts of secrets. How powerful this is? Because even if you are not next to them right now, you are. Simply trust the universe to pass onto the message”. Vicky
"Attending my first puja all night gong bath - what can I say it was a feeling of PUJA:oneness,togetherness and bliss. I remember thinking when I came around in the morning - what happened, I know something happened but unsure what. I remember getting on the floor on two yoga mats with my friends sleeping bag watching the gongs and the players then I was gong literally another zone, dimension I have no idea all I know is I felt peace and then had a few very peaceful weeks after it" Ms Catherine Odita MBE xxx
"After the Puja I felt being drained out of energy and quite out of place. However shortly after I felt a new type of energy enters my body and being uplifted emotionally and physically.
During the night while the Puja was played I had vivid dreams in full color and they were dreams of such magnitude and power. Some of those dreams were for seeing my future and future of the world. AfterPuja my life becomes more focused and somehow easier then regularly. I am stronger and coping better with stress and little life knocks. I highly recommend Puja to everybody as this is life changing experience. Too difficult to explain, you have to see for yourself". J.D.
"My Night of Gong Puja. For me this was a life gift, a break from the Rat Race of life and a remedy for relieving stress. During the Puja I was asleep, awake, awake and asleep. It felt like a beautiful daydream. Sometimes I felt a bit annoyed, this soon disappeared making me feel safe and peaceful as if I was in a mothers womb. A feeling of coming home after a really long absence. In the morning when I opened my eyes the room was filled with a ray of sunlight. Time just slowed down and I felt that I was connected to something really big. That only me, only now the present time was all that mattered. I was surrounded by tranquillity and love. I wanted time to standstill forever. After the Puja I knew that all my stress had left my body and all other things in my life had become meaningless. Over the next few days I had feelings of irritability and peace. My body continued vibrating on its own accord. I believe this was a process of letting go and releasing blockages of old unwanted programmes. I am truly thankful for the Night of Gong Puja healing. I have learnt how to live life with more distance and to slow down when necessary . I feel that I am very strong and radiating unconditional love and peace. The whole process has been a wonderful experience and has shown me how much stronger I am". Beata
