Why Gong Meditations?

The gong is one of the oldest instruments in the world, and it is said that all of the sounds of creation are contained with in. It differs from other instruments because when you make contact with the gong, the sound swells and begins to decay and then the sound returns of its own accord building to a second and higher peak before fading. This is called “re-sounding,” the return of sound.  This sound cannot be predicted by the brain and lulls the brain into Theta brain waves.  The body is harmonized, chakras cleared, and negative energy is broken up. The vibration of the gong raises the vibration of every cell in the body and negative thoughts and energy trapped in the cells is releases.

On a purely physical level, the sound of a live gong stimulates circulation while its wide range of frequencies stimulates nerve endings and may prove useful in recovering from injuries in which nerve damage has occurred.

It also appears that the sound of the gong stimulates the glandular system to a higher level of functioning. The pituitary gland seems directly affected by its sound which in turn causes the whole glandular system to become balanced.

Every session is unique as the gong responds to the energy, issues and intentions of the group. Words do not adequately describe what happens and the gong must be experienced to appreciate the full effect.

“If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies. One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes. Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.”
— Dr. Mitchel Gaynor, Director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine at the Cornell Cancer Prevention Center in New York.
