Dr. Karambir Khalsa facilitating a gong meditation in Boulder, Colorado

Dr. Khalsa hosts public classes, events, and workshops in southwest Utah (mostly in Washington, Iron, and Kane counties) as a form of outreach to advocate for the use of sound healing, gong bath, and meditation in some combination as adjunct treatments for anxiety. Upcoming events may be held Nevada and Arizona based on demand and scheduling. Please check back for more information.

Sound Healing – Gong Bath – Meditation

There are many names to describe this experience including gong bath, gong meditation, gong wash, sound healing, sound bath, klangbad (German), baƱo sonido (Spanish), bain sonore (French), klankbad (Dutch), bagno sonoro (Italian). Participants relax lying down, reclining, or seated while the practitioner creates a soundscape using a variety of sound healing tools such as: gongs, singing bowls, crystal bowls, didgeridoo, bells, voice, and recorded music. While meditative in nature, it is not a focused meditative practice. The practitioner begins with a mindfulness meditation technique known as labeling which may deepen participant experiences and then gently transitions to the use of sound healing tools. Sound healing has been shown to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system (i.e., lower one’s breathing and pulse, lower electrodermal activity, lower cortisol and norepinephrine) and stimulate the alpha and theta bands in the brain (the alpha band is associated with emotional activity and the theta band is associated with cognition and worry), the combination of which referred to as the alpha-theta bridge can result in deeper emotional healing. We hope to provide clinical data on the specific effects in a future research study. For now, why not judge for yourself!

Kundalini Yoga and Meditation

Kundalini Yoga and Meditation has been a driving force behind the evolution of gong meditation as an adjunct practice in the world of yoga. Yoga in general prepares the body for deep meditation. Kundalini Yoga and Meditation has been called “the yoga of awareness” and combines the elements of mudra, mantra, pranayama, asana, meditation, and relaxation in a unique blend designed to activate one’s life force energy (i.e., kundalini shakti). While gong meditation was not historically-speaking an intrinsic part of the practice of yoga, it adds an element of deep relaxation to the end of a yoga class while participants are resting in corpse pose. Dr. Khalsa is a certified Kundalini Yoga instructor and often combines the practice with a longer gong meditation as part of his public classes, events and workshops.
