Mantra and Gong Bath for Deep Relaxation and Sleep
Autumn is here in the Northern Hemisphere and it's an important time to prioritise self-care. If you're looking for relief from anxiety, stress or insomnia, then why not join Jane for 75 minutes of luxurious relaxation with healing sounds? She will use a variety of instruments including brass and crystal bowls to soothe your mind and body. Once your body and mind are deeply soothed and relaxed, we will practice a blissful meditation together. This is a live event you can enjoy in your own home, and you'll get a free replay to listen to for 7 days after the event. If you're local to the Dru Centre, we have very limited places available for you to attend the event in person.
Studies have shown that sound healing can have a profound impact on the body and mind. The vibrations of sound can affect our brainwaves, inducing a deep state of relaxation and promoting healing. Here are some scientifically proven benefits of mantras, crystal bowls, and Japanese gongs:
- Reduces anxiety: A study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that practicing mantras for just 10 minutes per day reduced anxiety levels by 20%.
- Boosts immune function: A study published in the International Journal of Yoga found that chanting mantras increased the activity of natural killer cells, which are responsible for fighting off viruses and cancer cells.
- Reduces stress and anxiety: A study published in the Journal of Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine found that playing crystal bowls reduced stress and anxiety levels in participants.
- Enhances mental clarity: A study published in the Journal of Complementary and Alternative Medicine found that listening to crystal bowl vibrations improved cognitive function and mental clarity.
- Improves sleep: A study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that listening to Japanese gongs before bed improved sleep quality and reduced sleep disturbances.
- Reduces pain: A study published in the Journal of Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine found that playing Japanese gongs reduced pain levels in patients with chronic pain.
From the comfort of your own home (or even bed!), listening live using headphones, to Jane's melodic bath of healing sound. She will use Vedic mantras to awaken the heart, melt away stress and bring a deep sense of joy and protection. The sound of the Japanese gong will help your brain move into the deepest brainwaves, associated with creativity, learning, and deep meditation. And once the mantras and gong have done their work, we will take time to luxuriate in that peaceful energy to meditate and settle. Many people report deep healing sleep, a clearing and focusing of the mind, and a wonderful sense of peace after the gong and mantra bath.
Working in collaboration with Russell Roberts, our Dru sound engineer, this high-quality sound experience will help you get all the benefits of a live sound and mantra bath, without leaving your home. You just need a good pair of headphones and somewhere comfy to relax for an hour or so.

Here's some feedback from the January session: 'Thank you so much for a beautiful experience this evening, my first gong bath with the Dru community. I practise mindfulness but usually struggle with meditation. The gong bath really helped me to relax and be immersed in the sound and I was able to let thoughts come and float away again as I focused on my breathing during the meditation. A wonderful experience! I will make the most of the replays. With love and thanks again, Catriona
‘I have been to 2 of your gong baths before and loved them. I was wondering how it would be in this new format. I sorted out some earplugs and settled down and it was wonderful. I couldn’t believe the quality of the sound! I had a great night’s sleep. I would be interested in a gong bath once a month.
This session is suitable for all levels of experience of meditation and sound, but it might not be suitable if you have epilepsy or a disturbed nervous system.

If you are a member of the Dru Professional Network you will be able to accrue 1 CPD hour for attendance at this event. Attendees from other yoga schools will need to check individually for their own CPD credits.
Connecting in with teachers and fellow Dru yogis around the world is always a great joy.
Following the videos and working on the meditations has been everything I have needed this week.
I am opening my classes again here in Norway after having been closed since 12th March.
So a very special time indeed.
I feel so blessed - belonging to this community, doing this work, bringing positive change to the world.
Discovering the love inside is amazing, discovering how to help others to discover that love inside themselves is stunning.
Dru is the power tool I use to clear the debris from my body and mind.
