The Spring Equinox is celebrated as a time when day and night return to balance.
As the days grow longer the increased light ushers nature out of her deep hibernation and infuses her with renewed energy as new growth blossoms and the world is once again alive with the sights and smells of nature.
This time of renewal highlights our own need for balance and renewed energy to support the rejuvenation and growth of our body, mind and spirit.
And what better way to honour this time of renewal than with an extra-ordinary sound healing experience lasting throughout the night. Otherwise know as a Gong Pooja (or Puja).
Pooja is a Sanskrit term meaning – ritual to honour or celebrate (an event, a person).
During a Pooja the gongs are played gently throughout the night and into the early morning hours while guests sleep.
The cosmic sounds and vibrations clear and cleanse, repair and rejuvenate the body, mind and spirit leaving you feeling the lightness of a truly balanced nervous system, and a deep sense of stillness, peace and wellbeing.
A light breakfast will be served afterward, to nourish and ground your body before leaving and starting your day.
This extra-ordinary event would not be possible without these two beautiful souls:
Upon experiencing her own profound healing and discovering her passion for the gongs, Sherry went on to complete intensive training with Gongmasters Don Conreaux and Aidan McIntyre.
Bonnie (Sachpreet Kaur)
As a Kundalini yoga teacher and owner of Sadhana Yoga & Sound in Port Coquitlam, Bonnie has also trained as a Gongmaster with Mehtab Benton, Don Conreaux and Aidan McIntyre.
Together, Sherry and Bonnie will create a 7 hour continuous healing soundscape.

WHAT TO BRING: (please read carefully) Wear comfortable clothing. Bring what you need for a comfortable sleep – pillows, eye pillow, sleeping bag, blankets, duvets, camping/yoga mat or blow up bed (single size only), or any other item that will help aid your comfort as you will be sleeping on the floor.
We ask that you do not bring king size inflatable mattresses and keep your “sleeping area” within a reasonable size. Please bring anything you will need to ensure you’re comfortable and warm throughout the night as you will feel cooler as you enter into a deeper state of sleep.
Bring a water bottle to keep yourself hydrated.
There will be an altar set up near the Gongs. You may wish to bring a personal item to be cleansed and bathed in the sounds.
We suggest you to eat a good meal before the event, but not too heavy.
Herbal tea will be available before the Gong Bath commences.
