Event Description: The 90-minute event includes an 11 Planet Gong - 62-minute Gong Bath Meditation, followed by sweets and community. Before the gong bath, Licensed Mental Health Counselor Katie Stickney will discuss how stressful and traumatic events impact the body. Post-event, she will moderate an optional group conversation - participants can share thoughts, feelings, or questions that arose during the experience.
Gongs are precision sound healing instruments that acoustically elevate us, creating a deep, spontaneous meditative state that can release negative emotions and heal traumatic wounds.
