Portsmouth Festivities – Gong Bath, learn about the instruments and try them out!
Sunday 24th June 1:30pm – 3:30pm
Havelock Community Centre, Albert Road, Southsea, PO4 0LQ
For Portsmouth Festivities we have extended our session from the usual length of one hour, to two hours. After the hour long Gong Bath itself has completed, participants will be given the opportunity to try out the instruments themselves, under our supervision.
We ask all participants to remain quiet throughout the performance. We do not have any age restrictions and well behaved children are welcome.
A gong bath is a form of sound therapy used for deep meditation. You will be bathed in sound waves, no water is involved.
Bring a yoga mat, blanket and pillow, lie comfortably, close your eyes and relax.
We have chairs available for those who do not want to lie down for the Gong Bath.
Tea and biscuits are also included. Places are limited.
Or buy from Portsmouth Festivities: Portsmouth Festivities Website
