Super moon Gong Bath

There will only be one gong bath this weekend as we have a gong puja on 2nd/3rd

This Sunday is a super moon. When a full moon coincides with its closest approach to Earth, it is called a Super Full Moon. Because it's so close to Earth, a Super Full Moon looks about 7% bigger than an average Full Moon. 

It is biggest during winter. Supermoons during Northern Hemisphere winter months tend to look larger than Supermoons that occur during the rest of the year. At this time of the year, Earth is closer to the Sun. Because of this, the Sun's gravity pulls the Moon closer to Earth, making any winter Super Full Moons look bigger than summer Super Full Moons.

The best time to enjoy a Super Full Moon is after moonrise when the Moon is just above the horizon, weather permitting. At this position, a Super Full Moon will look bigger and brighter than when it's higher up in the sky because you can compare the apparent size of the Moon with elements in the landscape like hills, foliage, and buildings.

The greatest difference between high and low tide is around Full Moon and New Moon. During these Moon phases, the gravitational forces of the Moon and the Sun combine to pull the ocean’s water in the same direction. These tides are known as spring tides or king tides.

This is a wonderful time to have a gong bath as our bodies are very receptive to the vibrations and energy of the gongs and can have a very positve effect espeially during this time when the stress of Christmas can begin to play into our lives.

Please book:   £10  Mats, balnkets, bolsters and eye masks provided. There are refreshements afterwards.
