All Sound bath gong immersions are designed for opening blockages, neutralizing tension and increasing the healing potential of the human body. Each immersion embraces the sound technology to attract protective and guiding light that is generated by our solar system. Each planet represents a different energy and vibration based on its movement around the Sun. Each immersion has a different combination of gongs representing the solar system and other healing instruments depending on the theme related to astrology.
Each planetary gong has a unique vibration that opens and transforms the energy vortexes of the body to initiate energetic freedom and healing. When we have energetic freedom we feel alive and joyous while attracting the people and things that serve our purpose in life.
Some of the gongs that are usually present include: Platonic Earth representing clarity and purpose; Earth Year representing the Experience of the Journey; Venus representing love, friendship, joy, and abundance; Neptune representing imagination, creativity, compassion, and heightened awareness; Mercury to communicate internally; and elemental earth representing balance and protection. Other Gongs represented depending on the theme may include Mars, Niburu, Chiron, Moon, Sun, Accent, Jupiter, Symphonic, Wind, and Chao to name a few.

Each gong immersion will have a different theme and sometimes will include a sacred ceremony. They can range from 2 ½ hours to 8 hours. Most immersions are 2 ½-3 hours and include yoga warm ups to energetically activate the energy vortexes of the body related to the theme followed by a meditation (may include beginner style chanting).
It is a great experience for a first timer starting to explore sound and vibration to the regular participant exploring a different perspective depending on the theme.
Gong Immersions take place monthly and are advertised on this site and are usually held at Ginseng Yoga in South Park San Diego, Grand Hall in Ocean Beach and Soul of Yoga in Encinitas. The location does vary depending on the event.
Occasionally Dhyanjot conducts sound workshops, Nutritional cleanses and other retreats that include the healing vibration of the gongs.
Note: Preparation: The journey will also include light physical warms ups to prepare the body for accepting the benefits of the sound vibrations-So bring a yoga mat and comfortable yoga clothing. Treat the experience as if you were camping out in nature for about two-three hours– so be sure to bring something comfortable to lay on, eye pillow and possibly a head pillow.
