Gong Training and all night puja

Join us for an all-night Gong Puja. This is another opportunity to bath all night in the resonant fullness of the gongs.

The Gong Puja is a Ceremony, Celebration and Sound Meditation, originated by Grand Gongmaster, Don Conreaux. The Gong Puja experience lasts about 7 ½ hours which is the equivalent of 10 x 45 minute Gong Baths. The normal length for a sound journey being 45 minutes.

Immersed in the sound of the gong and in the subtle ether’s of the sound bath the Innate Intelligence inherent in us all can more easily restore, rejuvenate, regenerate, cleanse, and re-establish holistic resonance between the mind/emotion/body.

All gong masters around the world are working towards peace, the creation of a compassionate world without violence or abuse for all the children of today and tomorrow, and a healthy planet. This puja will be dedicated towards this aim and you are also invited to create a personal intention for yourself and your loved ones.

Introductory gong training and participation in All Night Gong Puja.

This is a perfect introduction to playing the gong and will include playing for a short while for others during the all night gong puja.

The training will include a brief history and philosophy of the gong but for the most part will be hands on and practical. You will learn about mallets and gongs and learn the gong strokes appropriate for playing at a gong puja.  We will also explore together how to play with sensitivity and you will experience playing for others as well as receiving.

 You will then assist in the setting up of the gong puja and take a full and active role in the ceremony.
