April / May News:
It’s been a busy few weeks.
On the 30th April, we ran another Gong Training weekend in London. It is always a pleasure to introduce people to playing the gong, and to see how people develop over the day. Huge congratulations to Suzy, Janine, Anna, Karis, Tina, Clare, and Amrit – you’re all wonderful gong players. We look forward to attending your gong baths soon! (Next Level One, details here).
On May 1st, we ran a Gong Yoga training. This introduces more specialised ways of playing the gong to enhance yoga, relaxation, and meditation. Suzy and Janine added this to their Level One from the previous day. And it was wonderful to be joined by previous “gong graduates” Julie, Claudia, Emma, and Dora. The day was so much fun although I don’t think I’ve ever been that “gonged” before. It was easily two days after before I felt grounded again!
On the 7th May, we held two Gong Baths at Woolmer Green, the second of which a subsidised event for Carers in Herts. They were both really special, and from our point of view, it was great to give something back.
Alex has continued with his 100 press ups a day challenge for Cancer Research – I am ensuring compliance! Thank you so much to everyone who has sponsored him and motivated him to keep going! If so inspired, sponsor him here.
And how wonderful it has been to start to practice outside once again over the last few weeks!
The Teacher Training manuals are back from the printers and ready to go! We are halfway to filling the course – to say we’re excited is an understatement! Emma, our movement specialist, is about to give birth. Watch this space….
We’re in the latest edition of Om Yoga Magazine! We contributed an article to their Teacher Training special, and ran an advert for our Teacher Training Course.
And finally, we got to visit Parliament! (At the invite of a really good friend, not because we’ve done anything wrong). Alex and I were on best behaviour, we didn’t ask once about Sue Gray. Happily our “Prime Minister” was out of the country, and we managed to avoid any “exchanges” of views with the current “Government”. It was a great honour to be allowed inside – an absolutely awesome building with so much history and tradition. This was bucket list stuff for us both. Westminster Hall is ripe for a gong bath – we figure most of them could do with some inner healing!
