We wanted to bring the experience of gongs to all of our retreats, so we got one of our own. The Sun Gong is known for its vibration frequency similar to the Sun. The sound characteristic of Planet Sun Gong is comparable to that of Symphonic Gong in diameter 38”. Planet Gongs are tuned in conformity with the natural harmonic series based in the orbital properties of the Sun according to calculations of Hans Cousto. Thus they resonate in harmony with the cycles of the celestial bodies and communicate a distinct aspect of the “music of the spheres” so amply quoted since the Antique. Their sound color is extremely mysterious and conveys an unusual, unfathomable atmosphere. What most people might not know is that the practise of gongs goes back all the way to ancient Greece and its purpose was to train participants in eliminating fear. Mystics of the east say that one gong therapy can equate with many thousands of meditations.
