Charity Gong Bath
Thursday, 8th August 2019 at 6.30pm
Join us for a special charity Gong Bath in aid of Outdoor People Family Camping.
Lie down, relax, get washed in sound and help us raise money for the inner-city kids coming to Green Farm for the unforgettable experience of family camping.
Every year The Outdoor People bring a number of kids from inner-city London (Hackney, Southwark etc.) with their parent/s to Green Farm to get outdoors and active. Most of the families are refered by family services and the trip is possibly their first ever holiday. Camping for 3 or 4 days in Fairyland is a real tonic.
This will be the 4th year that we have hosted family camping at Green Farm. To see what this is all about, please read the blogs from previous years:
£25 per person
Full payment is required at time of booking.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who’s leading the Gong Bath?
Sēing founder, Sarah Waite, a qualified psychologist, coach, hypnotherapist, meditation teacher, and sound healer.
Where is the event?
In the beautiful glass yoga studio at Green Farm, although deep in the countryside it benefits from being 10 minutes’ drive from the Fast link service which is just 37 minutes from St Pancras
Can anyone come?
All levels welcome (adults only). As a precaution, gong / sound meditation is not recommended for pregnant women in their 1st trimester, or those with pacemakers. Please be aware that sound sensitive conditions e.g. Tinnitus, Ménière's Disease, and Epilepsy, and those with medical metal implants e.g. pins, rods, screws and plates, may be affected by the sounds and vibrations.
Get in touch with Sarah (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions, concerns or conditions she should be aware of.
Do I need a swimsuit?
If you’re also going to use the spa facilities, yes! But no water is used in a sound / gong bath. You’ll be ‘bathed’ and cleansed in sound waves and vibrations.
What if I can’t meditate?
No prior experience is needed, simple guided meditations and sound baths are the perfect way to start! In the evening, the sounds and vibrations of the gongs will gently ease you into a deep, automatic state of meditation and relaxation (alpha state), dreaming (theta state) and deep healing sleep (delta state).
What should I bring?
Yoga mats, blankets and bolsters are all provided.
• Wear comfortable clothing.
• Bring Wellies, walking boots or trainers to explore Green Farm’s beautiful grounds.
• Warm & waterproof clothing for walks in the woods
• We will provide yoga mats, bolsters and blankets, but please bring extra padding if you feel you need it.
