Summer - Flourish Gong Sound Bath & Supper Evening
Seasonal Gong Sound Bath and Supper Evenings
with Ali Gunning
To enrich your sound bathing experience Ali will share a mini practise of movement, breath and sound, helping you to fully settle and receive. Each evening has a seasonal flavour, helping us connect to the needs of mind and body in that moment.
The sound bath is an inner journey which is unique to each and every one of us. A practise of listening deeply, surrendering into the flow of sacred sound which facilitates a state of deep relaxation, meditation and self healing. As the original creative force, sound leads us back to source, to connection with our deepest selves. Ali (resonant being) is an experienced sound and yoga therapist who creates safe and loving spaces for people to explore and heal in their own way. She works with high quality gongs, singing bowls, elemental instruments and her voice.
Ali’s immersive gong baths are followed by a delicious light supper, lovingly made by lime house chef Emma and served in the warmth of our studio reception.
24th June – flourish
To celebrate Summer Ali will guide you in simple heart opening movements and breath work. Around the solstice we can find space in the body to fill with light and sound, just as nature comes into full bloom. The sound journey will offer bright sparkling sun and symphonic gongs with playful melodies of hang and harmonium. In the long summer evenings we are often joined by joyful bird song filtering in from the Limehouse gardens.
23rd September – Nourish
As nature transitions into Autumn we will share some simple grounding postures and balancing pranayama. The equinox has just passed, reminding us of the dance of dark and light, a chance to check in with the nourishment we need for the quieter months ahead. In the sound journey we will alternate the deep tones of gongs with the light song of crystal singing bowls, grounding you with tinkling bells and earthy shakers.
9th December – Release
To honour the descent into winter we will share a few yin postures infused with the sonorous Brahmaree pranayama, helping you slow down and let go. By candlelight we will create a spacious cocoon of healing sound, gentle singing bowls and bells leading into powerful washes of planetary and symphonic gongs, ending with a deep silence for integration.
These sacred sounds realign us on a level that is beyond conscious thought.
