with Michael Bettine
The Gong Meditation is all about sound and its influence on the human
body & energy systems. The Gong’s vibrations can help balance, cleanse and unblock energy in your body and Chakras. Working at a cellular level, they help to relieve stress, fatigue, depression, anger, and blocked energy. People are encouraged to bring a Yoga mat and/or blanket on which they can sit or lie, while allowing the healing vibrations to wash over them.
Session participants have reported experiencing deep relaxation, fantastic journeys, and even spontaneous healing of illness & injuries. Gongs have the power to transcend time, space, and other realms. There are many times in playing a session where an hour feels like ten minutes—where did the time go?
Some responses from participants are:

little sound, like bells, and I just felt renewed, like being
I don't believe in this kind of stuff, but I came with a friend
anyway. I was laying on the mat resisting, and when you hit
the big Gong, I just opened up!
