GUIDELINES FOR THE GONG BATH

From the desk of Don Conreaux:

To the listener…………

Suggest gently to yourself,

“I will let the sound go right through me as though I were not there at all.”

“I will remain open and allow the gong vibrations to immerse me without any resistance.”

“I will keep myself relaxed and comfortable as though I were home alone in bed”

“If I feel any discomfort I will stretch or turn over without a second thought.”

“If I sense at any time any tension in myself, I will allow it to complete its tension cycle without judging it’s meaning.”

“I will allow my mind to think its thoughts whatever they are without attempting to still them.”

“I will let go of any urge to control anything.”

“I will consider any thoughts that arise as simply thought dust that is being swept away by the winds of change.”

The experience of the sublime occurs when the judgmental is down.


“The Gong is the spirit song.
It’s the primal whisper of the soul”

Yogi Bhajan

Yogi Bhajan introduced Kundalini Yoga to the America in 1968
and was greatly influential in spreading the use of the Gong,
from India to the Western world.
If it were not for Yogi Bhajan, I would not be practicing the gongs today!

Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo (the Adi Mantra)
I bow to the Creative Wisdom, I bow to the Divine Teacher within.
This mantra is used for “tuning in” to the divine flow and self-knowledge within each of us,
and linking us to Yogi Bhajan and the Golden Chain of teachers.
It is chanted at least three times at the start of each Kundalini Yoga class.

I do not want to mislead anyone or claim to be something I am not.
I do not have any formal Kundalini training nor am I, a Kundalini Gong Artist.
Kundalini Gong is a unique style of playing.
My own style I believe is more ambient, rhythmic and conducive for meditation (my opinion).
