Welcome to Gongtopia
A Gong Meditation Session with Michael Bettine
It’s unlike anything you have ever experienced before. Imagine floating in an ocean of sound, where you can let go of all your stress and worries. Gongs, Singing Bowls, Bells, and other instruments ring out, creating waves of vibrations that wash over you. Your body and energy systems are able to realign and recharge, helping to clear out blockages, while leaving you refreshed and reawakened.
This 90 minute session is all about sound, resonance and its effects on the human body & energy systems. The vibrations of the Gongs, Singing/Rin Bowls, and Bells can help balance and cleanse the energy in your body. They work at a cellular level and can help with stress, fatigue, depression, anger, and blocked energy. The vibrations can release blockages at the Chakras and other energy points. People are encouraged to bring a Yoga mat and/or blanket on which they can sit or lie, while allowing the healing vibrations to wash over them.

A typical response from a participant: ˝I felt that experience processing through me for days....truly magic.˝ After a recent session, one person even said, ˝I don't believe in this kind of stuff, but I came anyway. I was laying on the mat resisting, and when you hit the big Gong, I just opened up!˝
