A Gong Master is someone who always feels first as a student of Gong Consciousness, and then a Teacher. The rule in playing this role is to do least or no harm, which is prerequisite to manifesting true love. Conditional love is self-love and somewhat reptilian in nature. It is against the ethics of a Gong Master. One can ethically get away with deception only within certain artistic bounds such as an actor/magician creating a theatrical character and making us suspend our judgement temporarily.
The true role of the Gong Master requires a distillation of our common homo- sapien ethics in order to emerge as a true model for a homo luminous/spiritualis. The way of the Gong has a path that follows the golden spiral upward into more and more sublime consciousness.
So, following sequence, consequence and the resulting cause/effect on the polarized Wheel of Karma, if one acts in a dysfunctional way maintaining the bad ethics of 'control through deception' while in the role of a Gong Master, that person may find the bitter truth that a fall from such a height is farther and harder for the one who is the deceiver.

Effect of a one-week spiritual retreat on dopamine and serotonin transporter binding: a preliminary study
"Spiritual retreats are a commonly used intensive program of meditation and prayer, along with other elements, designed to provide participants with opportunities for spiritual and psychological growth. While individual elements of such retreats have been studied, there have been no reports in the literature regarding the neurophysiological effects of these retreats. This preliminary study presents the first data we are aware of on the neurophysiological effects, particularly those related to dopamine and serotonin, in a group of participants undergoing an intensive seven-day spiritual retreat. We used DaTscan single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) in 14 individuals before and closely following participation in a seven-day spiritual retreat. We observed significant decreases in dopamine transporter binding in the basal ganglia and significant decreases in serotonin transporter binding in the midbrain after the retreat program. Participating in the retreat also resulted in significant changes in a variety of psychological and spiritual measures. We also report the relationship between neurophysiological and subjective measures along with a discussion of potential methodological challenges for future studies."

Moment by moment, we are affected by the multitude of vibrations that surround us. The music that we listen to is one of the conscious choices we make concerning our vibratory environment. Listen to your favorite music, what does it do for you? How does it make you fell? Gong music is markedly different. The mystics of old felt that the Sacred Gong was the incarnated embodiment of a high creative intelligence. In human form this would be called a Teacher of Truth. Gong were also considered like cosmic engines, delivering "universal life force" to people.
The Gong was the first musical instrument synthesized by humans, around 3500 BCE in Mesopotamia. Wheat was the big food commodity on Earth at that time. Huge stone bread ovens became so hot that the copper and tin flowed from the rocks onto the oven floor. These metallic elements melted together into a thin metal disc, when cooled they produced a great resonant sound.
The struck tones fully simulated the beginning word, the sound of OM, the glorious roar of the Universe. Consequently, these flat metal discs were named after the sounds that they madeŠ Gongongong. There was a marked difference in some of the gongs that had a mysterious element added to them. The gongs that had rare fallen pieces of meteorite in them, produced more resonant power and so they were known as Sacred Gongs. The unknown rare element in them is now known as nickel.
Master gong makers meditate for a long period, hammering and listening to each gong they're preparing for acoustical birth, until they feel the presence of the gong's most resonant tone. Their objective is to build a living vehicle for the incarnation of a high creative intelligence, a Buddha of Sound. Such a meditative and creative process takes 6 to 12 months. Too many hits and the gong is considered useless and has to be re-smelted.
According to sound researcher, teacher and therapist, Gongmaster Don Conreaux, the Gong has been used as a spiritual quickener. On a physical level it was used to regenerate the life force of an aging body. The seeker experiences a multi-level influence by the rolling waves of gongtones. Conreaux calls these sound waves feeling ones" because they are kinesthetic, tactile, and sensed by the physical body. The receiver of gongtones registers the vibrations through the skin, muscles, bones and fluids of the organs and cells.
Today, Gongmaster Don Conreaux offers an increasing variety of Gong music. His intensions are obvious; experience the joy and fruits of the gong. He has developed his unique offerings over a period of more than 40 years in sound research, sacred arts, yoga and bodywork practice. In the summer of 1984, traveling West Coast to East across the United States, Conreaux was part of the Mahatma Gandhi Salt March, sponsored by the Nike Company. He performed social ceremonies with the ancient gong in each city as they met with local and state dignitaries. The original march was to the sea to procure salt to strengthen the weakened will of the population, so they could resist tyranny in a non-violent way, and have the strength of spirit to not cooperate with evil. It is not difficult to see that the entire world may need this salt" to transform nationalism and corporate politics into proper respect for the Earth and the Good of All.
In 1987, at the World Union of Cities for Peace convention in Madrid, Spain, Conreaux presented the idea of a Global Network of Peace Bell gardens. It won the unanimous endorsement of the 90 Mayors from cities around the world. Obviously, this is a man dedicated to planetary harmony and spiritual growth. Conreaux presents gong music in a full variety of planetary tones. The Gongs of our Solar System recording represents the spectrum of resonance of celestial harmonies. Eleven (Paiste made) gongs tuned to the planets of our solar system; Sun, Mercury, Venus, Moon, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. This is possible due to the work of Hans Cousto, the scientist who calculated the vibrational frequency of each planet and applied the octave principle to these frequencies so that each planet can be heard as a tone.
The ancients recognized the relationships of the planets to the human being. Each of us is a microcosm of the macrocosm. The Gongs of our Solar System resonate chakras, meridians and organs. Each benefits psychological, physiological and spiritual conditions. For example, Venus has to do with creating compassionate mind, loving kindness and inspiration. It affects the Ajna or 3rd eye chakra. Physiologically, it corresponds to the cavernous plexus, brain, triple heater, pituitary gland and the gall bladder. Now, you can decide what to develop or transmute. This profound music stands by itself, or as a support to other healing modalities. This music (as well as gongs, his full complement of recordings and publications) is made available by contacting Mysterious Tremendum.

DON CALENDAR FOR 2017
“You can achieve what you were gonged to achieve!”
As a Gong Master, my Seva is to take you for an ‘akashic’ adventure of gong consciousness through the yoga of holistic-resonance, through the fullness of living tone, and wherein you will experience the ‘dematerializing, levitating and rejuvenating’
effects within the “timelessness” of the universal gong field, and
there totally relaxed in the state of Turiya, of Positive Neutrality,
your Innate Intelligence and your Intuitional Buddha Consciousness will repair, restore, recharge, and renovate the mind.
We have now entered the gateway of New Cycles, exchanging energies like cosmic gongs birthing Resultant Tones that live within each life upon this planet Earth and what is called its Gaia Consciousness.

“Who are we?
From where do we come?”
Why are we here?
What is our hereafter?”
“Why are we a species with amnesia?”
If we don’t know who we are
And we don’t know where we come from
How could we possibly think we know where we are going?
The Father of the Beginnings
Created the Elohim,
The Heavens and the Earth
Through Sound and Resonance
And also our obsession with Gold

Enter a magical world of tones and masks, where stories dissolve into the timeless field. Intuitively, we move, sing and play. Gongs, bells, singing bowls, drum, wind and stringed instruments weave and resonate within the mandala. Primordial, elemental sounds and images summon a deeper music from the wilderness with the invitation to see and hear, to play and dare.

The Eight Corners of Heaven Mirror Gong was developed in collaboration with the Gong Master “Don Conreaux”. This gong features a unique appearance with ancient mysterious symbols set against a mirror finish. The eight runic glyphs represent the cycle of life and suggest that the sound of the gong originates in the eight corners of heaven propelling the cycle of life on earth. Both sides of the gong are finished with a mirror surface allowing the player to see himself, listeners, or other gong players in an ensemble. This is also beneficial in meditation and therapy use for self-mirroring and reflecting surrounding lights.
