Extensive Gong Initiation Course - A 5 Day Gong Course

Extensive Gong Initiation Course - A 5 Day Gong Course


Join us for an extensive introduction into working with the gong, including elements of Gong Mastery and Presentation, as well as Gong Sound Healing for Self and Groups.

This unique training brings together three gong practitioners with over fifty years of gong playing between them. It is their firm intention to share their wealth of experience gained over the years playing for themselves, for individuals and playing for groups.

This course is facilitated by renowned Gong Master Trainer Aidan McIntyre, Gong Master Tim Byford, with several online sessions with Gong Healing Researcher/Teacher Dr Jain Wells (and author of Gong Consciousness: Self-Healing Through the Power of Sound).

At a Glance
- Selecting your Gong & basics of handling, care and maintenance
- Use of accessories and instruments: flumes, mallets, wands, feathers, tinctures, drums, rattles and chimes
- Gong techniques: a complete exploration of the landscape of strokes
- Developing a dialogue with the Gong (playing and listening)
- Singing Bowl techniques and Conch Shells (practical use and integration to the therapy session)
- Healing the self: developing your spiritual journey with the Gong
- Healing others: creating a tailored therapy session for an individual and group (Gong bath)

Students will have the opportunity to experiment with master quality instruments (both modern and collectable antiques): gongs and singing bowls, and also receive instruction on the shruti box, chanting, toning and singing. All material and equipment will be made available to students so there is no need to own or bring anything in order to participate on this course. However students are welcome to bring their own Gong or other instruments, if they would like.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
