About The Event

The Gong Puja is an opportune occasion to sleep or meditate in silence throughout the night bathed in the healing sound vibrations of multiple gongs for 7,5 hours continuously. 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. 

‪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 invited Danielle Uriel to enchant us with soothing harp sounds and vocals.

Join us for this auspicious night, timing perfectly with June's Full Moon to let go of old stagnant energies and thought patterns letting the sounds and vibrations of the gongs cleanse what no longer serve you.
