About the Event

These offerings are for those who have heard the gong, enjoyed the benefits of that experience and either want to deepen their ability to receive these healing frequencies or learn how to share them with others. We enjoy the gong for various reasons, but our core attraction to it is that we find relaxation for both the body and the mind, which leaves us free to explore other more subtly refined realms.

The player’s relationship to the gong is similar to our connections to our friends and loved ones. The deeper and more caring the intent in the interaction the more we discover that we value it. In those deep friendships we find love. So it is with the gong. The more we play and learn to deeply listen, the broader our sharing becomes so that we learn, grow and find enjoyment in the process.

Join Siri Bahadur at Shuniya Yoga Collective for one or both of these gong courses:

Beginner Training: Saturday, April 22nd | 2:00 - 6:00pm

We will learn the basics of gong sounds and how to employ the fundamental techniques of playing. Learning theory and linking it to practical experience will open the door to discovering that the gong can speak to you and that there is a rudimentary language to learn and a conversation to be had.

Expect to learn:

  • Gong-Playing Rules
  • About Mallets
  • Gong Anatomy
  • Playing Patterns on the Gong Face
  • Equipment for the Player
  • Rhythm & Volume
  • Different Strokes
  • Caring for a gong - yours or others
  • Gong Training Certificate of Completion

Intermediate & Mystical Training: Saturday, May 6th | 2:00 - 6:00pm

We will provide the knowledge and refined skills to learn the identities behind the conversation between you and the gong. This discovery is where the long-term, deeply satisfying relationship develops. The gong discovers you and you discover the gong. You speak with rhythm and the nuances of volume in the conversation with spaces of silence, whispering and with invitations to share more volume. Then the gong responds by sharing the nuances of its language resulting in the experience of deeper cosmic communication.

This course will provide the experience of a deep relationship with the gong and with those for whom you offer gong sessions. The base of being begins on the light bodies level, the causal plane where creativity begins. In this module of the gong player’s skill development we will deepen our listening skills and the ability to hold the space for a participant’s relaxed release into healing. The resulting refined sensitivity will clear the resistance within the player so they become an efficient conduit between the energies of the gong and the receivers of its healing effect. That sensitivity will create the connection between the gong’s sound vibrations to an appropriate alignment of the receiver’s light body, resulting in a more harmonious coherence of their field of energy. In addition to developing more subtlety in playing skills, the addition of pranayama and meditation practice will enhance the sensitivity of the gong player and bring an experience of intuitive poise into the playing which will translate into a more effective session.

Expect to learn:

  • Sounds within Sounds
  • Layering with Multiple Mallets
  • Listening Deeply & Intuitive Playing
  • Deeper Relationship with the Gong
  • Connecting Intention & Action
  • Playing for Others
  • Playing in Tandem
  • A sense of holding the space for more effective playing
  • Pranayama & meditative practices for a deeper sense of awareness
  • A closer relationship with the gong as a friend & partner in your playing
  • Gong Training Certificate of Completion

Now is the time to follow the invitation to immerse yourself in sound and establish or deepen your relationship with this healing instrument. You may even decide to bring a gong into your life and give it a place in your home. The world today needs to hear more gongs singing. You can help that happen.

INTERMEDIATE / MYSTICAL = $549 early bird (thru 4/8) / $649 regular
