Sound Healing with the Gong

Sound Healing with the Gong

Travel with Alice Pyramids of Chi

Sound Healing with the Gong: I recently took a couple of Gong Workshops. I have always been interested in sound healing and for one reason or another, I have never taken a course. I have been to quite a few gong and sound healing sessions whilst in Bali, but never really thought about taking a workshop to learn myself.

I heard Mehtab Benton a Gong Master was doing a workshop in Ubud and I remembered his name as my Yoga teacher in the UK had recommended him in the past and so when I saw he was in Bali I jumped at the chance to experience a gong workshop with him. Well, I wasn’t disappointed I had an amazing day with Mehtab and his wife, such lovely people and a really special day.

MEHTAB BENTON GONG MASTER

This led me to another workshop with Sanj Hall,Gong Master who was doing a last minute one-day workshop at the Pyramids of Chi.  I had experienced a Sound Healing at the Pyramids of Chi and so I was excited to learn more about the Gongs and the Singing Bowls. The workshops had spurred my interest in learning more about gongs and a yearning to play the gong myself.

Recently I attended the New Moon and Full Moon Sound Healing Meditations evenings held by Peter and Lynn who created the Pyramids of Chi.  It had such a special energy and atmosphere at the place. Each sound healing session is different and special, you never know what to expect but just to be open to whatever comes up and what you experience in the session.

An additional bonus for me is that Peter and Lynn help so many local Bali dogs, so you can often find a dog to cuddle or stroke. They have re-homed many dogs found near or around the Pyramids. They care for them and find them new homes. They recently helped Jack a puppy, who is now safely re-homed and rehabilitated into his new life.

Not only do they have amazing Gong players and Singers at the Pyramids but they also have wonderful food and the events are truly special evenings; bringing people together to share their very special space and the energy of the pyramids.

Read more about the Pyramids of Chi on their website about how it came about to build to Pyramids in the rice fields north of Ubud, in Bali.

Connection, Compassion, and Companionship 

For the moment I am happily settled in Ubud. Although I absolutely love dogs, this particular long-term dog sit I was offered didn’t quite work out for me in the end. The universe realised I needed my freedom and it signalled it through my body… so the choice was pain or let go! I choose to let go of a commitment instead of feeling the pain, a no-brainer but in the past, I would have just done it anyway! So a bit of bravery on my part to make a sudden change and throw my current plans in the air.

In life, you have to put your health first. I am sure I will do some dog sitting in the future, just not right now.  The dogs were gorgeous three little poodles and they were so much fun to be around… Sometimes decisions are hard to make!

Learning from Experiences

In life and especially it seems when you are travelling and/or living in Bali; you have to adjust to the rapid changes taking place that help us to move on in our lives. It makes us learn from our past experiences without having to relive them. Honesty and trust are key qualities in moving forward and that means not only trusting others but trusting in ourselves.

Our beloved Marsh

On another dog note. Our beloved Marsh died this week and we all feel very sad and I just hope he has made a safe journey to doggie heaven. We are all grateful that he gave us so much love and joy. He will be forever in our hearts. Not being a dog lover he won me over and everyone he met, he was a very special soul. Thank you, Marsh – we miss you already!

My Favourite Guest house and my new family

I am back in my favourite guest house Merthayasa 2 with the lovely people who run it and they welcomed me back with open arms and I felt instantly ‘at home” so I am so grateful for their kindness to me and making me feel I belong here in Ubud.   The sense of belonging and feeling cared for whilst living alone in a foreign country is something money can’t buy. The Balinese are very open-hearted, gentle people just the right type of people to be around in times of transition.

Being Grateful…

Gratitude is key in times of change. For me, my life has never really been planned, and what happened a few years back left me on a bit of cliffhanger and moving forward I needed to make some radical changes in my life. It all came as a huge shock and I am lucky to be in the place I am right now. It doesn’t bear thinking about any other outcomes but to live in the present and be eternally grateful that I have been very lucky and in the future, I hope I am able to reciprocate in helping others.

Some more of the lovely dogs I have met whilst living in Bali…the quickest way I find myself connected with compassion is through the temporary companionship of the many dogs I meet and interact within Bali and on my travels.
