**** The events and services below are ran at The Nest by friends of The Owl and The Coconut. For further information about them please contact them via the links. ****

Gong Bath

A gong bath is a super-vibrational experience. Gongs are such a vibrational instrument, with tremendous, organic beauty in their sounds, often reminding us of something of our inner nature. The vibrations swim around the room, through our every cell, massaging away our tensions, our stresses, our blockages.

They affect our brainwaves so that our minds move easily from thinking mind to dreaming mind, meditation and sleep.

7-8pm August 8th, £12. Booking in advance is essential. Please buy your tickets via www.tickettailor.com/events/gongspa
