Creating a Relationship with the Gong
The gong is a sixth century instrument that produces mysterious tonal mixtures that hold the timeless wisdom of the cosmos. Playing the gong is like playing the universe. The alchemical tones that come forth from a few gentle strokes create a continuum of sound that effortlessly carries the listener to an intimate space within themself. There is no instrument like it.
Our approach to the gong isn't so much as musicians, but as deep listeners, facilitators or instruments of the the instrument. When you enter a relationship with the gong, you are embarking on what has the potential to be a lifelong fulfilling journey that brings you into your highest resonance. One thing we teach about the gong is the gong has much to teach us. Our training courses are designed with intention to inspire the consciousness of the gong player and equip them with techniques to become a channel for the gong's cosmic force.
