THE WAY OF THE GONG
2012 marks the beginning of MEM Gong Yoga Teachers training. See calendar for training dates in Europe. The practicing Journeyman Gong Master is one who is able to design the pre-bath Gong Yoga Kriya.
At the turn of this century, 2000 was the 3rd Millennium number and 2001 was “year one’ of the 21st Century.
All cycles whether organic or synthetic as is this one, re-boot themselves and become recurring turning points of the quantum human consciousness shifting and lifting.
THE YOGA SLEEP OF GONG NIDRA
We may need our natural sleeping cycle of a minimum of 7.5 hours of mental-emotional rest (5 cycles of 90 minutes each) because that’s when the synapses between the neurons in our brain matter are pruned of yesterday’s obsolete experiences.
SYNCHRONICITY BY DESIGN
Consider the therapeutic micro gong Bath of 45 minutes under the spell of pure resonance, and also the macro All Night Gong Puja. Both Gong Experiences address and interface with our usual routine of sleep with the fullness sound of the gong filling the audio cortex of the brain while the mind is in off-line mode.
The influence of the gongs vibratory shaking of the cells in the body acts to support self-healing and to restore and re-establish cellular holistic resonance between the cell and its sacred archetypal template.
It is justifiable to say that each Gong OM bath is similar to being lifted to some mystical meeting ground where the Omega point meets the next Alpha point in a Harmonic Convergence of functional Harmony.
The completed cycle of a micro 45-minute gong bath relates to the 24-hour turn of the earth and greater cycles, such as those that converge on the December 21, 2012 matrix-point.
The gong is the most powerful tone producer on the planet and the healing response gong effect on the human psyche could be as strong in its telepathic resonance as any divine union or soul initiation.
Gratitude to all who participated in learning Gong with us :-)

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.
