LEARN TO PLAY THE GONG
Playing the gong for yourself or others is a deeply gratifying practice. You do not need to have any prior musical training or special talent. It’s an intuitive practice, so anyone can learn to play as long as you remain curious, motivated and let yourself be guided by a positive intention.
The gong player and practitioner training we offer is typically divided into two parts, both of which include theory and practice:
Part 1: Learning to Play the Gong introduces you to the history, theory and science of gong meditation, and includes an overview of playing techniques as well as practice time with the gong.
Part 2: Hosting a Gong Bath is designed for those who want to go further and learn to facilitate gong baths.
