The intention of this workshop is to use explore practices for personal use, as well as group or individual treatments. Not everyone who plays the gong wants to do so for others. Many sound workers may have periods of time where they need to reconnect or revitalize their personal sound practice with the gong. Whether we are playing for just ourselves, friends, clients or a large group of strangers we must tend to our own well being and own relationship with the soundscape. Open to all levels of gong players, from absolute beginners to those who are sound workers and are looking to deepen their relationship to the sound current for personal exploration. If participants have gongs/stands/mallets they can bring along or I will provide a gong for them to use.
