Deep Gong Meditation
Presented by: Romy Valdez
Saturday, June 3 @ 7pm
at Lawrence Barn

This meditation was specifically developed by Romy Valdez as a way to maximize the vibrational healing energy of the gong. It includes gentle yoga, conscious breath and a 40-45 minute gong immersion. The practice ends with chanting of mantra accompanied by shruti. The vibrational energy of the gong supports the body in clearing physical, psychological and spiritual blockages and brings a deep sense of relaxation and renewal.

These words are calls to action intended to motivate us to lead a simpler life filled with less; less stress, less stuff, less calories. Join chef, Liz Barbour, for a discussion and cooking demonstration that will explore the positive impact of simplifying your life starting with your kitchen.
