SAT NAM YOGA – Gong Resonance Therapy Training

May 19 - May 21

| 375$

Module 1: Gong Techniques (20 Hour Training)
May 19-21 schedule below

Are you fascinated by the healing and harmonic resonance of the Gong? Whether you are new to playing the gong or an experienced player, this workshop will offer a new perspective on how to work with this powerful sound current. Expand your relationship with the gong in a way that is transformative yet liberating, playful and creative. No prior experience playing the gong is necessary. Learn a number of gong strokes and playing techniques that will deepen your understanding and experience with the gong. Novices will get a solid base of playing techniques and deep listening exercises to help enter into an active state of meditation while playing. More experienced gong players will get an expanded vocabulary of sonic possibilities, subtleties and dynamics in producing various sounds, textures and tone qualities. We will also focus on playing the gong in different settings – individual therapy, group experience and Savasana. We will have a large selection of gongs to practice with during the workshop. Participants are welcome to bring their own gong(s) to practice with as well.

About Crown of Eternity

Crown Of Eternity spend their lives serving people through vibration, sound and music as well as with relaxation and energy movement techniques. Through their workshops, classes, therapy sessions and concerts they have helped thousands of people connect to their life energy, to deeper relaxation and to self healing. Over the past 20+ years Mike Tamburo has become well known as a multi-instrumentalist and polymath, performing and recording ecstatic and transcendental music as well as folk, ambient and sometimes unclassifiable sounds. He is also an artist and a film maker. As he worked deeper and deeper with the sound current and his own self healing practices, he discovered the healing power of the gong and other tuned metal instruments (singing bowls, bells, sound plates) as well as the healing power of mantra and toning. In 2008 he met Gallina Tamburo, who was on her own journey of healing. Their shared love of ecstatic music, kundalini yoga, the gong, sound therapy, and sacred chanting set the foundation of their relationship, marriage and eventual musical collaboration. They currently live in Pittsburgh, PA where they both teach sound therapy and kundalini yoga and run their own yoga and vibrational healing center (also called Crown of Eternity). In addition to completing their Kundalini Teacher Training at the mother ashram in Espanola, NM and Yoga For Youth Training with Krishna Kaur they have studied with Gongmasters Don Conreaux and Sotantar and trained in the Peter Hess Method of Sound Massage using Himalayan Singing Bowls for healing.

Whether they are bathing you in the complex harmonics of multiple gongs, ecstatic instrumentals or their cosmic renditions of sacred Kundalini Yoga mantras, Crown of Eternity delivers a heart centered experience that you will deeply appreciate and remember.
