Gong Resonance Therapy Training Module 1
Gong Resonance Therapy Training Module 1 With Mike Tamburo August 16 – 18, 2019 | Northport, NY Are you fascinated by the healing and harmonic resonance of the Gong? Whether you are new to playing the gong or an experienced player, this workshop will offer a new perspective on how to work with this powerful sound current. Expand your relationship with the gong in a way that is transformative yet liberating, playful and creative. No prior experience playing the gong is necessary. Learn a number of gong strokes and playing techniques that will deepen your understanding and experience with the gong. Novices will get a solid base of playing techniques and deep listening exercises to help enter into an active state of meditation while playing. More experienced gong players will get an expanded vocabulary of sonic possibilities, subtleties and dynamics in producing various sounds, textures and tone qualities. We will also focus on playing the gong in different settings – individual therapy, group experience and Savasana. We will have a small selection of gongs to practice with during the workshop. We will have to take turns playing. Participants are encouraged to hold a respectful and meditative space while they are playing and while they are listening to others play. Participants are welcome to bring their own gong(s) to practice with as well. If you plan on bringing a gong, please contact us and arrive 15-30 min early to set up your gong and stand. Open to all!
