|The Integration, a Sound Bath in the Mojave Desert|

Last night I attended my third Gong Bath led by Celia Beeson a Bristol based sound healer from Soundscapes. I was inspired to go by my long distance soul sister Lonely Moonchild and I am so glad I found them/Celia, I have never experienced anything like it (whilst sober) and I don't think I will ever be the same ever again!
So what happens at a gong/ sound bath you may ask? Well you take along a yoga mat to lie on and a blanket to snuggle in and lie down in a room as you would for Shavasana at the end of Yoga. The experience is started with a voice led meditation and then the sound healer gradually introduces a variety of different instruments such as Tibetan Bowls, Shruti Boxes and building up to larger Gongs.... the rest I cant really explain..... last night I had crazy third eye visuals and the most amazing shudders all over my body, and I felt like I was going to Implode... it was awesome... who needs the pub on a Friday night!!
So, being a bit shy I didn't take any photos at the event, so this morning decided to research Sound baths across the globe and I found The Integration..... which is...
“The Integratron is an acoustically perfect tabernacle and energy machine sited on a powerful geomagnetic vortex in the magical Mojave Desert.”

After Van Tassel passed away in the late 70's The Integration was adopted by three sisters who have re-purposed the building and it is now used for either private or group meditation sessions and sound baths and playing music ...has it reached other worlds.... I am sure many who have been would say so :)
The Integration has officially made it onto my top 10 places to visit!!! What do you think?
