Revive the Sangri-La within in a divine sound journey
Jasmine and the Tibetan Gongs
Tibetan Gongs, aka Tibetan singing bowls are the meditation tool in Tibetan Buddhist practice and have been widely used in Nepal, China and Japan. Apart from assisting in meditation, the Tibetan Gongs are also widely used in Yoga, music therapy and sound healing due to its unique healing effect. The concept of Tibetan Gongs sound healing is to use the power of the sound vibrations to correspond to our physical vibrations and restore the harmony in a deeper level physically and spiritually.
The Sound healing with Tibetan Gongs have been very popular in North America and Europe for the past 10 years, yet it is still a relatively new healing concept in Australia at the moment.
I had a chance to experience the divine sound healing with Jasmine, the prestigious sound healer and master with 20 years of international healing experience at the Concord Yoga Studio. She is one of the few sound healers that specialize in using Tibetan gongs in Sydney.
Once I arrived, I registered myself at the reception desk and got myself ready for the workshop. I have had a chat with a lady who said she was a crystal healer and she was a regular to the sound healing workshop as well, "everyone gets out of the workshop differently." She said. There were a few of us coming along to find out more about the sound healing like myself.
About 10 minutes later, we were called in to enter the healing room, we left our shoes outside, once I entered the spacious healing room, I could see the Tibetan gongs were all arranged in a certain position on the floor. Our yoga mats and pillows were also arranged neatly with our name tags and feedback forms. I have noticed that there were three locations displaying the singing bowls, one group was located in front of the room, one group with less singing bowls was at the back, one group was at the side of the room near the entrance.
The class started with three OM chantings and Jasmine's gentle voice guided us to close our eyes and find a comfortable position to relax. Then I heard the first strike of deep sound, striking a chord in my heart. I could feel that my heart was corresponding to each strike; it was not only my ears that listening to the sound, but also my whole body were corresponding to the sound, deep, soothing, meditative and reflective, the pure universal sound. Apart from the sound of the Tibetan Gongs, I could also hear the sound of crystals dancing in the air, which made my heart tingling with joy, it also washed away all my tedious thoughts and brought back clarity in my mind.
After a while, I could feel the sound and me were one, we were not separated, the sound existed in me and I existed in the sound, we were sharing the harmonious co-existence in the universe and I travelled to wherever the sound took me at that moment. By the time when Jasmine guided us to come back to the room, I have felt that I have been away for thousands years. I felt so much peace and joy in my heart, nothing in the world would rob that from me.
At the end of the class, we received a bag with two crystal stones as a generous gift from Jasmine. But as Jasmine explained later on to me, "there are no limit to discover the sound healing, the more you discover, the deeper it takes you, sometimes even beyond your imagination". I believe my journey has just begun.
