A wonderful evening of bliss floating on the sound of gongs all night long. Come as sleeper to enjoy the playing of others; come as an experienced gong player or come early to attend Gotta Hit a Gong to learn sufficient skills to play during the night. Attendance is capped and priority is given to gong players. Age 12 and above. The evening is followed by a simple continental breakfast.
Not to be missed. Always sold out so book early.
Floating all night on a continuous sound wave, what could be a better way to start the year of the dog?
If you thought 45 minutes of gong relaxation was great, try multiplying it by a factor of 10. You will have a smile on your face as you float in perfect peace on the sound of the gongs. Come as a participant / sleeper only or learn to play the gongs beforehand and then join as a player. We rotate throughout the night in 30 minute shifts to produce just enough sound to maintain the magic. The gong puja starts from 2030 and continues to sunrise the next day followed by a continental breakfast. If you have special dietary requirements, please let us know by email firstname.lastname@example.org

Studio Etiquette - Please be considerate of the needs and wishes of others. Most people come to de-stress and to claim quiet time. Enter the space quietly, keep your voices low prior to class. If someone clearly wants to be silent, or does not wish to engage, please respect their space.
Please leave shoes, coats, phones (on silent or airplane mode), and personal belongings in the cubbies by the door.
Class will begin on time. If you are late, wait for a natural break to enter the studio, please make as little disturbance as possible, and if possible sit near the rear of the studio.
End of class. Please help us maintain the studio by returning all the props to their original locations. Blankets are folded neatly as you found them and stacked in the closet ready for re-sue. Mats stacked neatly on the trolley. Take responsibility for washing your own teacups and feel as though the studio is your own home. Your help is appreciated in keeping it tidy, welcoming and clean. Thank you.
