Words will never do justice to what I experienced here. Our group, Matt and Jeanae, other people around the house who swinged by, the cats and the whole land there was soul awakening. Mother nature is beyond powerful. She's eternal and beautiful and if you allow yourself to truly let go, you will meet our Great Mother Spirit. Thankful.

So amazing!!

I had been looking into ayahuasca retreats for quite some time prior to booking this trip. When i found new life i was intrigued by the small group size as well as the private room and large property. I was very happy to discover the rooms were spread out, very clean, had new mattresses and private bathrooms. The layout of the facility, as well as the way the week is planned allows for a lot of privacy and personal time, if you desire it. The food is delicious! Jeanae makes everything fresh and is very accommodating to specific diet restrictions. For me, they were the perfect hosts. Approachable, but not intrusive. Matt is very gifted in his craft. I came to deal with issues I had been carrying for decades and feel as though i received everything i asked for and more. The easiest way to explain it is i feel as though someone hit the reset button on my life. New life is such a fitting name for this beautiful place, because for me that is exactly what it gave me. Thank you, to both of you for doing what you do for others. I will never forget this experience and am forever grateful.

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.
