I attended my first Gong Bath & Cacao Ceremony a few nights ago. And wow, what a state of bliss and deep relaxation I reached. Some of you may remember I did a collaboration with Gong Master Leith James @gongsoundmeditation
late last year where we held an active meditation. Some of my visual art was projected on a wall while the gongs were played. This time I attended as a customer 😊
A Gong Bath & Cacao Ceremony gives us time for ourselves in a hectic and stressful world. It is the perfect space to switch off the outside chaos and journey within, so that we can become clearer of who we are, where we are going, and the opportunities available to us.
During the ceremony we drank high grade Guatemalan Cacao while Leith read out an invocation and prayer. The Spirit of Cacao was one of the most revered of the ancient Mayan Deities. They called Cacao 'the water that runs through the heart'. Chocolate is a Sacred, Medicinal, Psychoactive, Plant and Theobroma or Cacao actually means “Food of the Gods” I was expecting a bitter taste but this Cacao was really smooth and slightly floral in taste.
After we finished drinking the Cacao we lied down and listened to the gongs for about an hour. I reached a deep state of relaxation and peace. When the session finished it really hit home how busy life is these days. The ceremony put into perspective how much we are engaged in everyday life in the matrix of the physical world. Our sub-conscious is exposed to so many thoughts, sounds, distractions, noises and clutter on a daily basis. This sound and earth medicine healing session was amazing and I'll be going again 🎶💙✨😄
