Description

Today I like to take you on a journey of sounds, in particular of an ancient instrument from Western China, the gong. Today, gongs are often used as meditation music - and that's maybe where you have heard them recently.
Gong baths became an important part of my self care and daily meditation practise about a year ago, helping me to take care of my subconscious mind as well as my body. Both my mind and body need a sort of “time out” at times, especially when dealing with T1D, which adds extra stress to my life (diabetes distress). Gong baths help me to do just that. I can relax and just ‘be’, feeling more capable to deal with life’s challenges and responsibilities.
I, therefore made this episode to share my personal practise with you and for you to experience its benefits at home.
You are going to hear an interview with my gong teacher Wendy Burbidge. In the interview we discuss:
 ✨ What a gong bath is
   ✨ How gongs became Wendy's passion
 ✨ What motivates people to do gong baths
 ✨ What it's health benefits are and how it can slow down our brain waves


Wendy and I recorded 2 gong baths for you! One is at the end of this episode, played on a bigger gong with deeper sound. The other one is with a smaller gong and higher sound, which you can find free to listen to on my blogcast @thehappytypeone.com. There you can also find illustrations, a bit of history and some of the health benefits listed, people experienced in gong baths.
I look forward hearing from you on instagram on how you liked this episode.


You can get in contact with Wendy via mail: wendyburbidge64@gmail.com
