SOUND THERAPY WITH GONGS and Cosmos Gateway Alignment with the CHAKRA TUNING PIPES

logo joanne

ALTERNATIVE SATURDAYS – 7-8 pm

STARTS JANUARY 13TH,  for 7 WEEKS

January, 13th, 27th
February, 10th, 24th,
March, 10th, 24th,
April, 7th, 21st

Although the Gong will be the primary instrument, other therapeutic sound healing tools will be used including Tuning pipes. These are hollowed out pipes that can be quite long in length.  The sound produced is tuned to very specific notes and frequencies and have a targeted effect.

Joh will be working with the chakra tuning pipes for the next 7 weeks starting from the ROOT chakra up.  There are 7 Pipes and they are based on the mathematical rotation of the planets around our Sun. These pipes are NOT based on a musical scale.   We will also therefore be tapping into the elemental influences of the planets.

Joh will be drawing on and harnessing particular frequencies with sound intention, visualisation and meditation to bring each chakra back into a greater state of equilibrium, balance and harmony.

These pipes work more on the cosmic energy of our chakras, or the subtle body. They also work on pathways and other gateways of energy that links more to our multi-dimensional selves where the unconscious meets the conscious.

Testimonials

`I recently attended one of Joh’s Gong baths to help with my fibromyalgia and I was surprised to say the least.  I felt my muscle aches disappear and felt so relaxed that I fell asleep.  The vibrations are very powerful and you can’t help but clear your mind and take it all in.  An excellent session with a great sound healer.  Well recommended’ Lee

Leave your doubts at the door and immerse yourself in the process.  Let it carry you and trust the outcome.  It’s all about intention’. Debby

`My sound healing experience was unexpectedly wonderful.  Joh worked her magic and the beautiful sounds she created soothed and balanced my body and mind.  My lower back pain has eased and my stress levels calmed.  It was an amazing experience that I would highly recommend’. Ylu

About Joh Johnson

Joh is a Sound healing therapist and author.  Her introduction into the world of Sound healing came after training and qualifying in other therapies including Cognitive Hypnotherapy, EFT, Theta Healing and Massage.  Joh has been a Reiki master for 18yrs.

You can find out how she came across Sound Therapy in particular if you go to her website and download her ‘FREE’ book excerpt ‘A Melody of Sorts’. from the international best selling book ‘Love Unboxed’  http://johjohnson.com

Joh uses mostly the Symphonic Gong as its carries the widest range of tones, frequencies and harmonics to facilitate a healing response.  The tones will vibrate the cells of the body, and pull you back into a greater state of equilibrium.  Any discordant elements in the body are balanced by the Gong.  The experience allows you to become cocooned and wrapped in an envelope of nurturing energy where nothing else exists except the sounds.  In this elevated and meditative state, the mental, emotional and physical body becomes super conducting and super regenerating, and healing can take place more easily.

Joh also works with the less familiar Tuning Pipes which are the same as tuning forks but louder and more resonant for longer.  They play single notes that target and interact more specifically with particular energy spots bringing about major positive shifts in the energetic patterns within and surrounding the human body.

The frequencies generated can help clear out negative energy blocks quickly and effectively.  The sound is pure and will quickly move you into a space of lightness as it re-attunes, re-aligns you, shifting you into a greater state of harmony.


Rebirthing Breathwork with Gongs

workshop image lighter

SATURDAY 3RD MARCH 2018 – 3-6 pm

Rebirthing with Gongs was first developed two years ago by Purnima Lillian Cordeiro (Rebirthing Club of London) in a working partnership with Brazilian Sound Therapist Susan Manjula.

Brought to the UK in 2016, this project is an initiative of Purnima and Patricia Carlota (SonicSoul), and aims to offer a new wave of Conscious Breath Therapy and Sound Healing in group sessions.

Rebirthing – Conscious Breathing is a breathwork therapy that can revitalise and rejuvenate the body, refresh the mind, delight the soul, and enliven our actions and relationships.

The Gong is a musical percussion instrument of ancient origins used as a sound tool in Sound Healing. Its frequencies and resonance can quieten the mind, relax the physical body, release emotional blockages, and cleanse the energetic field.

Together, these two therapies, potentialise the benefits of a session. Rebirthing promotes an expansion, and the sound of the Gong helps to dissolve resistance.

The session on 3rd March starts at 3pm. Please arrive 5 minutes before.

The workshop includes:
-An induction section where you learn the breathing technique of Rebirthing Breathwork, and are introduced to the sound of the Gong.

– A 90 minutes Rebirthing Breathwork practice section. You lay down on a comfortable mat ready to begin practice. In the beginning of the session, the Rebirthing Breathwork is accompanied by recorded music. The sound of the Gong will come in at a specific point in the practice.

– A sharing and feedback section with snacks and a cup of tea.

Grow Your Flow: A Beginner’s Yoga Workshop

Sarah F April workshop image

Saturday 14 April 2018, 14:00 – 16:00, by Sarah Fretwell

Vinyasa means to place in a special way. Each movement is a gradual progression from one to the next. The movement is aligned and linked with the breath so that you move with each inhale and exhale, flowing like water with ease.

An at-home yoga self-practise is such a gift. You can practise when you want, for how long you want, and whichever poses take your fancy in the moment. Yes yoga classes are a fantastic way to deepen your practise under the guidance of an experienced yoga teacher, and to pick up new tricks, but a self-practise is so deeply personal to you. Your body. Your goals. Your mind. Your practice.

This workshop will help you to take your practise from the studio into your own home. We will explore how to sequence a balanced home vinyasa-style yoga practise that gives you what you need day to day. We’ll cover with the traditional elements that make up a vinyasa practise; the different approaches to yoga outside the classroom; a variety of sequences for both different seasons and energy-levels; how to practise when you’re short on time; obstacles to a yoga practice at home and how to overcome them; finding inspiration for your own yoga practise; introducing yin yoga to your vinyasa practise and more…

This workshop is open to anyone – current yoga practitioners, beginners looking to understand more , or teachers wanting to grow their own practice – and will help you develop your at-home practice and more.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

You’ll leave with a greater understanding of the different types of yoga asana and how to create yoga sequences

You’ll leave inspired to start your very own self-practice

You’ll leave with a greater awareness of your own fluctuating personal needs – body and mind – and how to practise in order to meet these needs, which change day to day

You’ll leave with a knowledge of how the seasons effect our self and energy-levels and learn how to adapt your practise with the seasons.

Sound good? Join me for a fun filled two hours!
