"The secret of the gong is its tremendous potential for healing and rejuvenation.Because the gong covers the full spectrum of sound, it vibrates all the cells and bones and organs, some more than others, depending upon the pitch of the gong.
You feel an influx of energy coming from it in your body as well as hear it. The gong is more accurately a force of energy, like a divine engine, affecting the body’s meridians. By and large, after it’s over, you just feel great. You feel like you’ve been healed by the spirit of nature.” - Don Conreaux
Master Don was one of the 5 original Kundalini Yoga
Teachers designated by Yogi Bhajan in 1969. His first
teacher as a teenager in 1952 was Yogananda, receiving his Kriya Initiation in 1953. Don originated the Gong Bath,
Gong Puja, Gong Yoga, and more.
Introducing the practice of Sound Healing with the Gong. Looking at individual (one to one) healing session, public Gong Bath and Sacred Tone Improvisation public performances.
The ancient mystics believed that through the sound of the Gong people share universal life force. Gong Therapy is a method of bringing back balance and peace in the midst of the storm of life. A Gong Bath is a one hour concert with the sound of the Gong. The Individual session goes to the personal need of each participant.
Sacred Tone Improvisation is one of the oldest art forms. A way of pure intuition to connect us with ourselves, our environment and our Soul. Over the last few centuries it has been set to one side by modern musical systems, repeating and following the rules of the a system which destroys our uniqueness. Improvisation is the way to intuition and a mature relationship with other human beings and our surroundings. Without loosing your individuality, you will be part of the Whole In finding yourself through improvisation, you will find yourself able to improvise in life with full expression…
True sound comes from the Heart, from within, from the soul. Merge with this sound and follow it!
The MEM Gong Yoga we will teach is a simple, accessible system and can be adjusted to the physical and emotional needs of each individual. Anyone can practice it, independent of age.
