ABOUT THIS TRAINING
Join us for our “Introduction to Gong” class, specially designed for people who are interested in learning more about the gong and how to play it! We will touch on the history of the gong, the do’s and don’ts, some specific techniques, the various types of gongs and mallets, and allow plenty of time to practice! This will be a fun and intimate class, and the gongs will be provided for you!
The gong is one of the very first musical instruments ever created, and in its many tones is found the sound of creation, the sound of “Om.” Because the tones and vibrations of the gong do not follow a predictable pattern like other musical instruments, the mind cannot make sense of it and must give up, giving way to the gong. This is when the body's self-healing begins!
The gong quiets the “Monkey Mind”, allowing for a deep and effortless meditation, while working through the vibrations of sound to activate our body’s ability to heal at a cellular level! The gong and other modalities, such as yoga or Reiki, work very nicely together.
Many of you who have enjoyed my Gong meditation events have been asking how you can learn to play the gong. Once you begin this journey, you will likely experience a gong “finding” you.
Students will learn:
-How to tune-in vibrationally to the Gong.
-Learn of the Gong’s history and manufacturing.
-Learn and practice strokes for healing.
-Identify types of Gongs, Mallets, Stands, and Carriers.
-Find where to purchase Gongs at a discount.
-Provide multiple resources for further education and training.
-Play, practice, and play some more.
Bring your lunch and healthy snacks (think energy food), as we eat, play and ask questions.
