Life Changing

I decided to wait a while after returning from the retreat before writing the review so as to give a more balanced perspective. I would highly recommend this retreat. From initial booking until we left, the team at New Life have been like family. No pretense, no inauthentic vibes, just plain love and realness. My stay was great, I was in room #3 I think... with a great view. I had my own bathroom and privacy to soak in everything after the ceremony. My group was like family. From the time we met at the airport (thanks for arranging the taxi) until the time we came back, we became like a family. The ceremonies were intimate but not overwhelmingly so. Matt really puts his all into it. The food was delicious, I keep telling Jeanae to come up with a cookbook and Wes was great with the fruit platter display. The entire team is very knowledgeable , open, understanding and I felt no weird vibes at all from them. The massage and yoga were great as well. I stayed for 5 days but I will be back, hopefully once a year. I enjoyed my time. Matt, Jeanae and Wes thank you so much for a life changing experience. I'm still feeling the effects and I hope it remains...

Phenomenal Experience!

I strongly suggest this to be the only option for participating in ceremonies. Set and setting are extremely important. The facilities and staff are extremely professional with the best personalities. They are some of my favorite people after visiting. The best place for a positive and safe time to enhance all areas of your life. I've never been able to fully relax and overcome anxiety until my visit there. Thank you!

Gong Meditation Therapy

Everything on earth vibrates, and vibrations creates frequencies of sound. Everything, even down to the molecular level of atoms, is in constant motion and thus creating vibrations and frequencies of their own. Sound therapy, such as gong mediation, acts on these vibrations and frequencies to promote tranquility and peace.

Sound therapies have been used for thousands of years by cultures all over the world for healing. Certain frequencies are recognized as having healing potentials and for balancing positive and negative energies.

Sound has a tremendous effect on humans both physically and emotionally. This is most evident in the example of certain songs invoking strong emotions and having the ability to change your overall emotional state; however, sounds of all frequencies, both heard and unheard, have the power to affect the rhythm of our bodies and our psychological well being.

The goal of Gong mediation, just like other meditations and spiritual practices, is to create an inner peace and bring about heightened awareness and self-respect.

What is a Gong Bath?

Our new 34” gong!!

A gong bath is a meditative practice in which an individual lies on their back while the gong is played in a therapeutic way to promote health. The participant is ‘bathed’ in the sounds of the gong, where the frequencies produce the effect of tranquility and relaxation.

The brain operates on frequencies; our normal conscious state operates on Beta frequency (12-30 Hz). A gong meditation induces Alpha and Theta brainwave frequencies. Alpha waves (8-12 Hz) are present in states of relaxation such as daydreaming or use of imagination. Theta waves (4-7 Hz) are present during dream sleep or deep mediation. Sometimes, even Delta waves (.5-4 Hz), which are associated with deep sleep and other unconscious states, can be achieved.

The sounds of the gong resonate in every cell of our bodies in a powerful and effective way. The gong stimulates the glandular (endocrine) system and acts as an ideal tool for stress reduction.

The goal of gong mediation is to put the user in a deep state of consciousness where healing can occur.

Gong Meditation Benefits-
