The Gong is much more than a musical instrument, it is known to be the most powerful healing instrument as it releases reverberating tones of fullness and resonance.

Within a gong bath/gong healing the body is bathed in sound, with waves of vibrational energy enveloping the space with layer upon layer of sound waves. Feeling tones are heard not just by the ears but felt kinaesthetically by the entire body as a collective ear really it’s like receiving a sound massage. The gong bath experience is like being wrapped in a powerful cocoon of pure holistic resonance, the powerful and wholesome tones enable the listener to disappear completely in the sound field resulting in a profound sense of well being and inner peace. People emerge feeling extremely relaxed, re- energised and refreshed.

As a musician and a student of Energy Medicine, Healing and Yoga, Charlie has developed an understanding of how all of these practices (Healing, Yoga and Music) are interwoven and compliment each other. Sound (Nada नाद) is all around us, whether in the form of music (which is really just organised sound), in nature, in our speech, in the chaos of the city. Charlie’s Spiritual name isNadapriya– meaning creator of the divine sound- was given to her in India when she qualified from her first yoga teacher training from Sivananda Yoga Vedanta.

Sound is the original creative force, everything is made up from molecules that are vibrating at different speeds, therefore to quote from Sanskrit;‘Nada Brahman’ translates to ’the world is sound’  – everything is in a state of vibration.
