Gong Meditation – A new experience for the elderly

It has been a massively interesting week of Gonging and also a brand new experience for me.

I had an opportunity to introduce gong at a sheltered housing complex for elderly and disabled people. The group were between the ages of 80 and 91.

There is no doubt that there is something extra special about witnessing new people experience gong for the first time. It was awesome to see an elderly man, an MS sufferer who had never ever meditated or been in to anything remotely spiritual before but this guy, he just got it ! He said that he struggled to settle in for the first 5 minutes or so and then when he LET GO (his exact words) that was it for him. He could not believe that he drifted off to a space he had never been to before. I mean this man just loved it , he got it big time. Just goes to show that when we Let Go, magic happens.

Later in the week  I was part of a surprise 40th birthday gift of a gong bath. How lucky am I, I just love surprises and to be part of the surprise was awesome. Loved it and I now have a repeat booking for their friends.

I feel so truly blessed to do what I do and what I love.
