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.
