National Day of the Gong on June 21 honors and celebrates the Gong’s unique history and capacities among instruments of sound, music, creativity and healing.
Mighty and gentle; earthy and celestial, the Gong is an extraordinary instrument and conduit of Creation. With an extensive international cultural history, the Gong is versatile and engaging. It sounds super-sensory and multi-dimensional. Gongs come in an array of sizes, designs and origins, thanks to skilled artisans all over the World.
Expanding beyond typical applications, the Gong has become a profound presence within a delightful diversity of performances, ceremonies and events, as well as modalities for the Mind-Body-Spirit. Traditional and contemporary musicians, artists and facilitators play and incorporate the Gong into imaginative and effective spectrums of expression,
experience and purpose.
