Time & Location

About The Event
*** For this session you have to bring your own bedding: mattress (ideally camping pad, topper, foam or inflatable mattress), blanket or sleeping bag and pillow for a good and comfortable sleep. There is an option to rent a mattress.
The Gong Puja is an opportune occasion to sleep or meditate in silence throughout the night bathed in the healing sound vibrations of the gongs. By receiving seven and a half hours of gong sounds you will enter into a state of deep rest and expansion of your consciousness. Tensions and blockages in the body can be released, creating more space for the opening of the heart and allowing energy to flow better.
A night to surrender to the guidance of your soul, to dive deep into self healing meditation and lucid dreaming state. Sleeping in the energy of the Gong Puja space will most likely be dominated by Theta brainwaves, as the gong sounds may bring up visions and induce healing from our subconscious reality. Some sensitive participants may have a very colourful and adventure-filled sleep, while someone over-tired may go into deep dreamless sleep for most of the night. Your body will take from the experience whatever it needs, so trust in the process and allow the vibrations to do their work.
The deep complex overtones of multiple gongs resonate continuously throughout the night, melting away boundaries between being awake and asleep. Attending a Gong Puja is a unique and liberating experience and its effects can be felt for a number of days afterwards.
To open this beautiful night we have invited Michael Telapary to enchant us with sacred flute sounds: https://michaeltelapary.bandcamp.com/album/chakra-balance
The Puja will be held in the Sufi Temple, an oasis of stillness in the dunes of Katwijk aan Zee. A special place for meditation with excellent acoustics.
