Honoring New Moon in Leo & a partial solar eclipse
Its eclipse season, they bring lots of energy to the moons and affect us for 3-6 months. Prepare for the energy of this dramatic, emotional Leo moon with lots of energy from the eclipse (occurs early am 8/11). But Mercury retrograde in Leo adds more intensity and drama. Not an easy time, go with the flow, notice the drama instead of jumping feet first without thinking about it. This is a good time to create and express your inner self; appreciate your self!

Honoring Full Moon
The Sun lights up the Moon and our emotions; a good time use our imagination and intuition. Mars goes direct after two months of looking inward at our action and goals. This can bring forth anger and frustration. Be intentional and aware of this to ease back into moving forward with plans that have been on pause.
The gong is one of the oldest musical instruments in the world. A truly magical instrument that has been used for centuries for healing, ceremony, communication and music. Each of our gongs is hand made and tuned to the orbital properties of the planets. Together they create a cosmic symphony; by listening to it you are tuning in to the sounds of the cosmos.
Based on ancient wisdom, the gongs vibrate at the same frequency as the body allowing the body to heal itself; the sounds fine tune our bodies, mind and emotions. This helps us to relax completely, sleep better, improve concentration, and even increase our confidence. Sound healing can help with depression and fatigue too.
Being bathed in sound with intention puts people into a deep meditative state quickly because of sound, frequency and vibration. If you understand that we are made up of vibration and energy right down to our cells, it all resonates. Dr. Gloria Oberbeck, a Harvard-educated M.D. says, “Physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the body are affected so much by a Gong Bath.”
During a typical gong immersion, participants lie on the floor, or sit in a comfortable position, and the sounds wash over you. The sound of the gong can take you to another place and is a highly effective tool for meditation and shifting consciousness. There are so many benefits to giving yourself the gift of sound!
At Neptune we offer gong immersions once or twice a month, timed with the planetary cycles and movement.
