Gong Master Practitioner Intensive

The workshop is suitable for complete beginners as well as advanced,  experienced  players The Gong is one of the most ancient and important instruments, thought to have originated nearly six thousand years ago in Sumeria, it has been used for healing and ceremony ever since. It has experienced a renaissance in recent years here in the UK and throughout the World and has been adopted as part of their therapeutic or personal practise by many therapists, sound healers, yoga teachers, shamanic practitioners and those following a spiritual path. Gong Healing practitioners offer Gong Baths or Immersions either in a group setting or as a one on one. Recipients report very deep states of relaxation, along with a feeling of totally letting go, often going into a state of deep meditation where healing can more readily occur.

From our own varied experience conducting many sound baths and attending a large number of different certified sound healing and gong trainings, we have developed what we feel is a unique and comprehensive training in the Gong. Our Gong Master Practitioner Training is comprised of two parts. A residential training followed by a distant learning correspondence course. Firstly you will attend the Harmony of the Spheres residential training.

Gong Master Practitioner Intensives The Gong Master Practitioner Harmony of the Spheres Intensive is a mixed ability residential workshop. No musical experience or experience of the gong is required to attend. The workshop is suitable for complete beginners as well as advanced, experienced players who wish to immerse themselves in the gong space.

A wide range of gongs will be available during the residential for participants to use.

This intensive training will provide participants with enough knowledge and practical experience so they have the confidence and competence to practise in a healing environment or group performance situation. Participants will be taught everything they need to know about playing the gong, giving one on one treatment sessions and group gong baths/performances at a relaxed pace. It is a complete course in how to play the gong from basic to advanced playing techniques. The aim is to impart as much knowledge and teaching about the gong as possible within the timeframe. The residential is held over five days in a very high vibrational centre of which we have exclusive use over the duration of the stay and its private and quiet location is perfect for the work we undertake. The Intensive is suitable for those who wish to use the gong for transformation and healing, both for themselves and others in a non-professional capacity. You may attend the Intensive only if you wish, or you can also proceed to Part Two to complete your professional qualification.

sound healing instruments A wide range of gongs will be available during the residential for participants to use. If participants already own their own gong, they are invited to bring them to the training to be included within the gong space.

All participants will take part in the all-night gong puja ceremony and for those proceeding to Part Two, this is an essential part of the certification. You should bring bedding, cushions and covers with you for comfort during this session as we will be spending the night in the gong space. Please note it is not permitted to use the bedding from Dev Aura. All participants will remain in the sacred gong space, each taking a turn during the event at playing the gong for all present. After the puja ends, participants will have the opportunity to rest for a few hours before continuing with the training.

The emphasis of this residential is upon practical, hands on experience mixed with relevant theory. Participants will truly be immersed in the gong for the entire length of the residential.

Should you wish to continue your training and receive the qualification as Gong Master Practitioner, you can continue to Part Two after you have attended the residential training. Part Two follows a distant learning syllabus separated into five modules which are based on both practical and theoretical study. The aim of Part Two is to provide practical and theoretical learning opportunities for students to really explore both their relationship with the gong and also experience working with "clients" on a one to one and group basis. The explorations are both interesting, developmental and fun and on completion the students will have extensive practical and theoretical knowledge and the confidence to practice professionally should they wish.

A wide range of gongs will be available during the residential for participants to useaTo complete this training, should you go on to Part Two, you will need to have your own gong or be able to use a gong to complete Modules One to Five. You will receive an introductory workbook during the residential and a more comprehensive workbook at Part Two which will provide all the theoretical information you need to complete the training. On successful completion of each module, assessed and approved by your tutor, you will be able to move on to the next module. The modules must be completed within 12 months of attending the residential.

This training is certificated and evaluated and recognised by the CMA (Complementary Medical Association), the leading professional body in the field of complementary therapies. As a registered CMA college, we are recognised as one of the leading providers for gong training. We feel the two parts combined give students the best of both worlds; an intensive residential training to really immerse themselves in the teachings of the gong, and an extended course of study to assimilate the teachings over a longer period of time at a pace to suit yourself.
