Gong Therapy in Malindi, an experience to repeat

Video story about relaxation meetings at Shala Heart

17-08-2021 by Leni Frau

Malindi's tradition of relaxation, mysticism, the unconscious and magic has deep and distant roots. Already the Arabs had considered, in their travels around the year one thousand, the regenerating power of the nature of the Kenyan coast and Malindi, unlike other places overlooking the Indian Ocean, stood out for the welcome and the richness of its comforting goods, including fruits, spices and more. It is said that the grass to smoke and the palm wine that the indigenous people used to distil also attracted travellers and convinced many of them to stay longer than necessary in these parts.
Today, rest and even abandonment have a healthier, more natural meaning and are often synonymous with escaping the stresses of civilisation and searching for oneself far from a world in which values are disappearing.
With this in mind, Malindi has for some years now appeared as an ideal place to cultivate oriental disciplines, linked to the spirit and to well-being.
There are many places and structures that facilitate these processes and also people who, as experts and enthusiasts of yoga and its surroundings, have been active in making this town a destination for wellness tourism.
One example of all, which we at Malindikenya.net have witnessed, is the series of appointments with "Gong Therapy" organised by Shala Heart last season, with the participation of Master Vikash.
Gong Therapy is combined with the practice of Yoga Nidra, which is essentially relaxation and immersion in a dimension of total relaxation, bordering on abandonment of body and mind. During this process, Vikash plays with dexterity by vibrating two large gongs with his hands and with eardrum sticks, emitting prophetic sounds.
The appointments have been very successful and we hope that they will be repeated, as soon as the restrictions are relaxed and allow meetings of all kinds again.
In the meantime you can enjoy the evocative video made by Malindikenya.net on the "Gong Therapy" at Shala Heart in Malindi.
