The gong baths are weekly and each week will be different as indeed is every gong bath but we will be using more or less of certain percussion instruments before and after the bath - shruty, native rattles, flute, ocean drums, Burmese bells, Tibetan bowls, Kalimba, Koshi wind chimes, handpan and others. We had no full moon in February which is rare and as a result there are two in March. The first on March 2nd and the second on March 31st. As we saw in January, this is not a common event and is referred to as a Blue Moon.
WHAT IS A BLUE MOON?
The modern day definition of a Blue Moon is when there are 2 full moons in one month. A full moon occurs roughly every 29.5 days and on the rare occasions when the full moon falls at the beginning of a month there is a good chance a Blue Moon will occur at the end of the month. The next blue moons in January and March will be in 2037.
DATES IN MARCH - 4th, 11th, 18th & 25th
4th March - the Moon will be in a Waning Gibbous Phase. This is the first phase after the Full Moon occurs which was 2 days ago. It is a good time to reset your intentions and link back with nature.
11th March - Mothering Sunday. The Moon will be in a Waning Crescent phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. 2 days after the last quarter.
18th March - the Moon will be in a Waxing Crescent Phase. A Waxing Crescent is the first Phase after the new moon which was yesterday and is a great time to see the features of the moon's surface.
25th March - the Moon will be in a Waxing Gibbous phase. The first quarter was yesterday and this phase is when the moon is not yet a full moon (in this case a Blue Moon) which will occur on 31st so there is that build up of expectancy and it is a good time to reflect.
