About the Gong:
The gong is an ancient instrument, dating back to 3,000 years, although it is actually thought to have been used for healing and transformation much earlier than that.
The gong creates sound waves and vibrations which are heard and felt in each cell of our body. It is thought that the sound is heard with the ears and the vibration is felt on and inside the body. The gong acoustically elevates us to a higher state of awareness and affects the brain waves to bring about changes in the subconscious mind, facilitating a deep, effortless meditative experience. It is during this time of letting go and relaxing that the benefits of the gong begin to impact the body.
Combining the healing sound of the gong with sacred intention assists one in rediscovering their divine spiritual being and the gifts that knowledge brings. During this time of self-discovery, transformation and healing occur as one allows the gong to play the universe.
“The gong is the sound of creativity itself” – Yogi Bhajan, Kundalini Yoga Master
