Come and experience a unique and transformational gong and singing bowl meditation. The mystics say that the original state of the whole creation is vibration. We are constantly being vibrated on a cellular level by heard and unheard sound frequencies. The secret of the gong and the singing bowls is its tremendous potential for healing and rejuvenation. Both the gongs and singing bowls cover the full spectrum of sound, it vibrates all the cells, bones, and organs, some more than others depending on the pitch of the instrument. During a sound healing session, stress is being released and a restoration of the body’s natural equilibrium is made possible. Sound is now being used as an important part of the healing process for cancer patients as it helps to calm the mind and the body and assists in the management of pain.

The session will start with some qigong movements in order to deepen the overall experience of sound healing. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat and a light blanket for your comfort.

Let us know if you are interested in another drumming circle, healing with the sacred Peruvian Whistling Vessels, or the hemi-sync sound healing discs.  We can do any of these on the same day or as separate sessions.

Come and experience a unique and transformational gong and singing bowl meditation. The gong generates powerful multi-dimensional ripples of sound that grow into waves and bathes your entire body in streams of sound as your cells relax and soak the sound vibrations in a most powerful way. The Gong is an ideal tool for stress reduction, stimulation of the glandular system, and as a facilitator to break up emotional blockages.

What is Crystal Bed Therapy?

The concept of the Crystal Bed, also called crystal bath therapy, was channeled through John of God by the spiritual healing Doctors. It was developed for practical use and incorporated as an important healing modality at the spiritual healing center affectionately known as "the Casa Dom Inacio in Brazil." For visitors to the Casa, the Crystal Healing Beds are available to all and are prescribed by the Entities (Healing Spirit Guides) of the Casa for rejuvenation, alignment and balancing of our energy fields, which in turn aids in the process of spiritual and physical healing.

How does the "Crystal Bed" produce healing?

The "Crystal Bed" combines the power of Color Therapy and Crystal Healing Therapy. This energy stream produces beneficial stimulation on many physical and energetic levels. This combination of healing energies is further GREATLY ENHANCED by the "Healing Spirits" of the Casa de Dom Inacio. These Healing Entities are the Spiritual Beings that work in and around the Casa de Dom Inacio and with all those deeply connected to the Casa family. These are the Entities that are incorporated by the Medium "John of God." The colored light shining through the crystals is a tool that the Spiritual Doctors use to channel their healing energy into the individual receiving the "Crystal Bed Healing." As the color is transmitted through the crystal onto the corresponding chakra, the chakra is cleansed, energized, and brought into balance with all of the other chakras. This allows the other aspects of our self, whether it be mental, emotional or physical, to be brought into balance. For when the chakras are out of balance, all the other aspects of us will also be out of balance. Through this session the body's own natural healing mechanisms are able to function as they was designed to do. The "Crystal Bed” Healing" cleanses, balances and recharges the body's energy and creates a deep relaxation. It is also a great preventative modality.

What is a Crystal Bed?

A Crystal Bed has 7 extremely clear and highly polished Vogel cut quartz crystals suspended approximately 12 inches above the client. Each of the quartz crystals has been cut to a specific frequency. Each crystal is aligned above one of the seven human energy centers or chakras. Colored lights, chosen to match the vibration frequency of chakra colors, radiate light and energy through the crystals to each respective chakra, (energy centers of the spiritual and physical body) and shine on and off in certain rhythms to cleanse, balance, and align your energies. The individual receiving the session rests face up with eyes closed, bathing in the energy. For the best results, the Entities request you wear white or light color clothing, and simply maintain an attitude of openness, receptivity, and create a clear mind.

Many people who have had "Crystal Bed Healing" Sessions have reported some of the following:

  • An increase of definitions in the senses (taste-food, sight-colors, touch-awareness)
  • Feeling more energized- clear thoughts- ability to focus
  • Feeling a deep relaxation- a connection to the earth and/or universe
  • Feeling more at peace within themselves- a balance of the chakras
  • Feeling less stressed and an increased sense of overall well being- increase in health
  • A deeper spiritual understanding of themselves, and their life situations
  • Gaining insights into their future life path and the evolution of Mother Earth
  • Gaining insights of the cause of disease states- looking inward into personal health
  • Receiving guidance as to how to best deal with their disease or problems

What’s all this got to do with BodyTalk? 

While the various frequencies of the electro-magnetic spectrum are modified and rebalanced with each BodyTalk session, frequently sound and light can be applied in concentrated dosages to speed up healing and energetic balancing.  The two programs above allow you to do just that.  Sound healing with Usha is produced in a group meditative format, and crystal light baths with Bonnie are private sessions that must be scheduled for each individual.  Best results come from regular BodyTalk sessions that are enhanced with sound and or light energy.

The deceased native Seneca’s are delighted that we are keeping the woods and brook as sacred healing and ceremonial grounds for them as well as for YOU who appreciate the value of spending time in nature.  If you are a BodyTalk client here, you know that “Chief”, the native American shaman and tribal leader works with me in spirit all the time.  He lives at a level wherein all is known about everything, and can suggest to you what you need to do to continue to upgrade your health.   Re-connecting with nature is always available when you come to Gossamer Wood.  Meditation along the trails is of great value for anyone.

We can always use volunteer help and financial donations for the chain saw and other tools used to keep the trails open.  Don’t be shy…spend a few hours anytime being renewed by mother nature while helping to keep the enchanted forest beautiful.

A few of you have expressed interest in doing a group sweat lodge, which was postponed until Sat., Sept. 26, 2015.  Please reply with your name, email  and phone number if you are interested in participating in the next one.
