"Gong Paradise-Gong Bath": Verapose Yoga & Meditation House.

  community member   < less Paiste earth gong

Beautiful, hand-crafted and timeless, gongs for generations have offered a unique sound journey through their powerful yet subtle tones. The power of the gong in sound therapy is associated with many healing modalities. As we listen, it helps calm the mind and body, assists in the management of pain, and healing is promoted as we enter a more relaxed state of being.
Equally, a gong sound bath helps to cut through mental chatter. Through sympathetic resonance, the sound frequencies quickly bring the brain waves into alpha and theta states where meditation and deep relaxation are experienced. In this state of awareness, with intervals of silence, one is able to enjoy a more relaxed perspective, gain deep insights and healing, and increased creativity.
Gong bath is 75 minutes.

  Ann Arbor Observer tree logo   < less

Oct. 25 & 26. Eight members of this internationally acclaimed Japanese butoh-inspired dance company perform director Ushio Amagatsu's 2015 work, a poetic meditation on the passage of time symbolized by the circulation of water and seasonal transformations. The action is set on a sand-dusted stage against a backdrop depicting a stone wall embedded with sea lily fossils. Created in the 1960s as a deliberate break with the rigid, stylized movement traditions of Noh and Kabuki theater, butoh is a highly expressionistic form defined by its grotesque imagery, taboo topics, and attention to abject human suffering. Ghostlike in a head-to-toe coating of white paint, the nearly naked dancers move with slow, deliberate movements that Amagatsu calls a "dialogue with gravity."
