A chance to experience relaxation on a deep level, allowing the body’s systems to relax, rebalance and re-energise, accompanied by the therapeutic sounds of the Chau, Sun and Wind Gongs, and Therapeutic percussion such as shakers, rattles and rainsticks. Sound has been proven to facilitate a deeper meditative state and one that remains with the individual for a greater period of time than that of similar relaxation processes. This is a similar process to the Soundbath but many people have found the gongs more energising.

These sessions are ideal for people who experience anxiety, stress, negative beliefs, pain and for anyone who would like to enjoy the opportunity for deep relaxation.

After the gongbath there will time to reflect upon the experience and also there will be tea and cakes to everyone to enjoy.

Spending the day with Clare Wassermann was both therapeutic and inspirational. She’s a wonderful teacher who makes art accessible for beginners and offers interesting ideas for those who are more advanced. I came out feeling relaxed and rejuvenated with a piece of artwork that I didn’t know I was capable of.  J.A.B August 2016
