An approachable read, for any one who loves music. Highly encouraged for all healersand educators; consider the sonic environment in your practice, your schools and hospitals. Must read for all sound healers!
I recommend the music CDs for anyone interested in sound healing, particularly anyone interested in Solfeggio Tones and anyone trying to carve out a serene soundscape. However, don’t waste your time with the book. Unless you are a Bible thumper, I find the Biblical references too much to digest in a book purportedly about sound healing.
I highly recommend this book to spiritual seekers as well as to anyone interested in exploring music or sound as a healing modality.
Joanne explores music from the usual perspective, vibration , rhythm and pulse, energy and breath, time, melody and tone, structure and form, silence and harmony. But she takes each concept and develops it, while she does not talk of Eastern and esoteric energetic principles in her text, the concepts are layered in the text in a way that brings self discovery and understanding of our own self, our true story and the convergence of our minds and emotions through music which expresses the soul by grounding us to ourselves in our bodies, we connect with spirit and open our wings. This book is an amazing transformational journey!
Great book for those pursuing entry into sound healing and those looking to expand their intuitive awareness skills while healing with sound
Follow me The Gong has the power of creativity. Absolutely it is a therapy, And it can expand the mind beyond its horizon. Yogi Bhajan
Follow me Gong is not a drum or a musical instrument, Gong is God. – Yogi Bhajan
Follow me The gong is a brotherhood of tones perfectly united and blended, a cosmic entity. IN it the law of cohesion manifests fully. It is a mass of atoms and molecules: It is a host of tones, of cosmic lives. It is a concentric and organic body, Through which the energy of sound flows
Follow me One can assert the the Gong is the mother of all sound. The gong is not a musical instrument; the gong is God. It is the most pure sound that man could create, out of which come all music, all sounds, and all words. – Yogi Bhajan
