New Moon Gong Bath

The next New Moon Gong Bath will be Thursday 4th November 7:30-8:30. Tickets will be available to purchase from 7th October.

Welcome to the wonderful world of sound.

Ancient sounds manifested itself through Andrew’s love of all things spiritual and holistic. Over a 25 year spiritual awakening Andrew has built up an excellent reputation of crystal therapy, Reiki healing (he is a Reiki master), leading courses on psychic development, crystal therapy and drumming circles.

One of his most recent developments is a Mind Body Spirit shop in Sutton In Ashfield - Dream Catcher Gifts. And has also opened Dreamcatcher Holistic and Gifts at Getliffe's Yard, Leek, where the gong bath meditation will take place.

In 2019 Andrew created his first sound therapy CD ‘Calling The Ancients’, using an array of quartz singing bowls. This has now led to the development of a unique sound bath using gongs, singing bowls and other instruments.

What you may experience during a sound bath:

Join us for a powerful experience with our unique gong bath. Let the sound penetrate your mind body and soul to help remove stagnant energy and leave the stresses of everyday life behind you.

You can expect a deeply relaxing space which helps combat stress and anxiety, quieting the mind, leaving you feeling stress free and calm. It is reported that 30 minutes in a gong bath is equivalent to 4 hours sleep! It boosts the immune system and aids circulation.

Every Gong Bath is a very personal experience, depending on where you are on your journey through life. Ancient Sounds may be your first or 101st experience of sound therapy but you will be warmly welcomed and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

During the gong bath the brain naturally goes into theta & alpha brain waves, which helps to promote a state of deep relaxation, clarity & meditation. Some people relax completely so that they fall asleep – if this happens your subconscious state of mind will continue with the relaxation process.
