Gong bath prelude: You are welcomed to a charming, peaceful horse sanctuary nestled against the foothills…. you are part of a rapt crowd of Light-hearted seekers…. picnic with a soulful speaker sharing sweet insights into themes of dark and light…. join a reverent procession across the barnyard…. enter a wood-rail pen framing our sacred circle….
NOTE: Sound begins at 19 seconds
Settle in to a twilight sound-scaped by horses: snuffling, munching, tails swishing and hooves softly thudding …. lay down, close your eyes, relax, breathe, rest…. enter your own world guided by spoken words…. the gong echoes Earth’s vibrations and follows horse energy…. deep/ sweet/ bold/ rich tones take you deeper and higher….
The setting sun leaves cooler air, a sense of completion and of promise…. foothills limned with pinks, golds, oranges…. share an impression…. depart knowing there is always great love for you here, inside you and at this place.
