    7.30pm – 10pm
    (Doors Open 7pm)

    A Powerful and Healing Sound Experience

    Sika on StageSika’s Pure Sound Journey’s are extremely popular worldwide due to their effectiveness in bringing people into a deep, deep state of relaxation.

    Enabling people to move through obstacles within themselves, Sika’s sound journeys invoke healing and profound transformations that can be carried into day-to-day life.

    Using a selection of Didjeridoo, Drum, Flute, Taonga Puoro (Singing Treasures) and other instruments from around the world, Sika takes us on a timeless Pure Sound Journey.

    In this beautiful dream state, the sounds he plays are truly primal and remind us of our ancient story.

    The Pure Sound Journey

    The Pure Sound Journey is for those who want to experience a deep and profound inner process.

    Lying down, closing your eyes and relaxing on your yoga matt with a blanket, you will experience the power of primordial sounds as Sika bathes you in a sea of Pure Healing Sound.

    Using his voice and a wide range of instruments; including Didgeridoo’s in different tunings, Hoop Drums, Rattles and Native Flutes, you will experience the vibrations and effects of sound passing over and close to your body.

    This simple, but incredibly ancient practice enables a profound shift to occur on subconscious instruments-newprogramming and cellular levels. The remarkable effects of this journey are often so powerful, as to initiate life changes in people, animals and even places.

    This personal and group intention to ‘improve’ reaches spiritual proportions and enriches not only our own life but also others. It is therefore a form of giving back to the world in gratitude and awareness.

    Sika

    Sika, is an international artist, who has been facilitating similar groups for over twenty-years, using pure sound to journey into higher consciousness.

    He is endorsed by three Aboriginal elders of the Yuin and Bidjura People of South Australia and his sound journeys are always a very deep and powerful experience for people.

    sika1Sika Says…

    I feel like an ancient time traveller, a pilgrim moving with the rhythms of the land. I feel honoured to walk this way, to carry the Taonga of this beautiful land and whisper of the secrets to those who will listen.

    It is full moon the night of our journey of sound. Slip with me into worlds within worlds, as we learn of our true nature.

    A Journey of Pure Sound takes us beyond what meets the eye.

    The instruments I play are my treasures. They give voice to stone, wood and skin. Their music expresses our close relationship with nature.

    Such music plays an important part in the rituals of everyday life. It breathes the spirit of our ancestors into todays world.”

    7.30pm-10pm

    A Sacred Celebration of Sound

    As we approach the Equinox and light springs forth from dark, join Tim Wheater and Cherub to share this Sacred Celebration of Sound.

    Tim and Cherub

    The Spring Solstice represents a time to integrate the light and shadow aspects within ourselves – mirroring the harmonious balance of nature.

    Let us gather together in a divine expression of yin and yang as we chant and retain the sacred vibration of ancient mantra, enabling you to embody pure balance in the present moment.

     Imagine a sense of pure Presence within you that is loving, whole and free.

    A timeless moment experiencing your most authentic Self, bound to no past or future, carried and supported by sacred sound as the blossoming Earth speeds her way into new life.

    Experience an expansion of consciousness through the high frequency fusion of planet gongs, flutes, drums, Tibetan bowls and vibrational tuning forks, sinking deep into the sound as it subtly transforms the very atoms at the core of your being.

    Celebrating the Spring Equinox

    Spring Solstice is an energetic doorway that allows us to break ground for new, fresh cycles from within – the equivalent of a shortcut to our highest vibration.

    Together we will bring forth our intention to the crystal alter of awakening, and by acknowledging the energetic portal of the equinox combined with the healing and transformational powers of sound, it can bring truly life altering developments.

    Tim Wheater playing flute

    Breathe in the angelic sounds as organic binaural beats raise your brainwaves to deeper states of meditation and serenity, stimulating neurons, releasing beta-endorphins, boosting your immune system and gently realigning your cells back into perfect harmony.

    The clarity you seek is available to you through your intentional focus on what you choose to experience as your journey accelerates at this pivotal time.

    Your choices will also contribute to the collective consciousness that creates the pathways of change intensifying on the planet.

      The way is open for you to choose.

    And the rest is up to you!

  • Aidan McIntyre – Magic of The Gong Experience

    Posted Feb 8th, 2013 By in Archives With | 1 Comment gongsandsingingbowls
    One-Day Workshop plus All Night Gong Puja
    Sat 20th July 2013 • 10am

       Gong Magic with Aidan McIntyre

    Join Gongmaster Aidan McIntyre for this unique 24 hour Gong Experience.

    Surrounded by the quiet splendour of the English countryside; the beautiful Sedgwick Park estate in West Sussex is the perfect venue for this wonderful healing and transformational experience to take place.

       The Gong Workshop

    Aidan and GongsDuring this in-depth One-Day Gong Workshop, you will get to know all the different gongs and mallets and how to use them in therapy, as well as in the special conditions of the all night Puja.

    The workshop will be very much of a hands on experience and over the course of the day you will learn how to play alone; how to play for each other; and how to play in a sound bath.

    The workshop will prepare you for the Puja Ceremony in the evening, when you will be able to really tune into the Magic of the Gongs.

    The best way to experience the all night Puja is by spending a full 24 hours in the presence of the Gongs under the guidance of Aidan McIntyre by participating in the workshop during the day before playing the Gongs during the Puja.

       The Power of the Gong

    Aidan playing the gongThe Gong Field is a Sacred Sound Space filled with the resonant AUM vibration that exists in the etheric realm.

    The Gong has the power to de-materialize (cessation of the sense of physicality), create a feeling of levitation (cessation of the sense of gravity) and an experience of rejuvenation (the feeling of an ecstatic fullness of life force)

    There is a sense of inner peace (a cessation of the sense of time flow) and immortality (the sense of the continuity of consciousness without a body, removing the fear of physical death).

    Powerful, profound and deeply moving, a Gong Bath can be a life changing event, unblocking and clearing away the old patterns that seem to hold us back as we open up to our inner source and begin to feel safe, secure and free once more.

       The Gong Puja Experience

    Aidan and Don ConreauxThe Gong Puja is a Celebration and Sound Meditation, originated by Grand Gongmaster, Don Conreaux at Gaunts house Dorset in the year 2000. The Gong Puja experience lasts about 7 ½ hours which is the equivalent of 10 x 45 minute Gong Baths. The normal length for a sound journey is 45 minutes.

    It’s a journey that’s timeless, in a time which is often measured in nano seconds, and as we journey with the vibration of the gong, we leave this dimension behind and move effortlessly into the 4th dimension.

    Immersed in the sound of the gong and in the subtle ether’s of the sound bath, we repair and rejuvenate as the cosmic ocean of vibrations wash over us; cleansing, unblocking and freeing us. The functional harmony created by the gong tones bring about an inner stillness where deep healing can occur.

    During the Puja, we meditate – or we sleep – a sleep like no other; where we are awake in a dream. We are in the arms of Morpheus, God of Dreams, wrapped in the cradle of our innocence and born again into an awareness of our true purpose, imbued with an abiding love of life.

    img_5270Throughout the night, gongs will be played by different gong players who have participated in the workshop during the day and have received instruction. Each person will play for 20 or 30 minutes each throughout the night and early morning whilst guests sleep bathed in the healing vibrations of the gongs. In the early morning, the Gongs will go silent and the Puja will end.

    Rising in your own time after sunrise, you will have the opportunity to freshen up in preparation for breakfast before returning to the Puja space where the group will review their experiences before departure.

    Through the Magic of the Gong, we can transform our lives and you could describe this magical experience as being like a Spiritual Puja-ma Party!

    Or like effortless Yoga with wondrous results!

       Further Information

    AltarEveryone will be asked to bring with them a special item of importance.

    This could be a crystal, a photograph, a flower, a ‘keepsake’ or something that has a special significance to you. Or you might prefer to bring something that belongs to a sick friend who needs help to heal; a physical object of some kind, or maybe just a piece of paper with a loved one’s name written on it.

    These symbols of abiding love and concern will be placed on an ‘Altar’ in the room where the Puja will be held. Those people who are intending to play during the Puja are requested to bring some white clothes to wear during the all-night ceremony.

    If you are taking part in the gong workshop, please bring a vegetarian lunch to share.

    For the all night Puja, you will be required to bring a sleeping bag, blankets, pillows, a blow up bed, or any other item that will help aid your comfort as you will be sleeping on the floor during the night.

    An Introduction to the Magic of the Gong followed by a Healing Gong Bath

    This evening Gong master Aidan McIntyre introduces us to The Gong Experience.

    He will teach us about the history of the Gong and there will be the opportunity for hands on experience of playing this beautiful instrument. Aidan’s introduction will be followed by an exquisite Gong Bath.

    If you’ve yet to experience the magic of a Gong Bath; then you are in for a very special treat!

    Bathing us in waves of beautiful and timeless vibrations; the Gong Bath has been likened to a mini-vacation, in which we become both the bubble and the sea as we experience a sense of disappearing and reappearing, leading us to new beginnings and a fresh place of self-healing and self revelation.

    The powerful vibrations of the gong transport us to another level of being; a place where healing naturally occurs and the stresses of every day life are gently washed away.

    Enjoy feeling immersed in an unlimited, infinite sound space, bathed by fluid, ever-changing melodies and harmonies blended with grace and lightness. Allow the sounds and vibrations to deepen your feelings of connection to Source.

    Begin your weekend in a perfect state of joy and bliss with a sense of increased vitality, calmness, balanced emotions and feelings of self-empowerment
