GONG PUJA ( Puja meaning worship ) Retreat
21.11.2017 - 6pm-8am Florence House, Salford. £50

Parking - Breakfast - showers provided

Join us for our solstice immersion at the stunning Florence House retreat venue in Salford. We'll be gathering for our bring a dish feast before we settle into our scared sounding time. You will be offered the opportunity of playing an hours slot in the night so we'll have a gentile introduction to the gongs before we settle down into our beds for the night.

Winter Solstice is our absolute favourite ceremony of the year ! The celebration of the returning SUN, even more thrilling is to be surrounded by Gong sounds all through the night until the Dawn Star rises bringing with it a new cycle in our calendar. Many of us experienced quantum leaps in our depth of healing, practice & personal empowerment last year. I absolutely cannot recommend coming enough & this night of all nights is profoundly important for our spiritual growth & healing.

Florence House is a beautiful cliff side retreat centre located in-between Saltdean & Beachy Head.

When attending a GONG PUJA you would usually bring the bedding you would need to be comfortable through the night. You will get a turn to play the gongs. So please let us know if you are experienced or not. No experience is necessary but is helpful. You will be guided on how to play them & partnered with someone more experienced if that aids your comfort. We will take it in turns to play through out the night. Your slot will only be 1 hour so the rest of the night you get to dip in & out of sound & slumber. Magical.

A simple vegan/gluten free breakfast will be provided. Please do bring what you feel you will need for your comfort for the night. i.e. bedroll, sleeping bag, sheepskin etc. There are some pillows at the centre, but we strongly advise you bring what you need to be as comfortable as possible. Some people brought full mattresses on our 1st event. So that gives you an idea of how comfortable you can feel to do exactly what you need.

The Kitchen will be open during the night so you can help yourself to drinks. Wander in & out as you please. There is free parking in front of Florence House.
