This is all about sound and its effects on the human body & energy systems. The Gong’s vibrations can help balance and cleanse the energy in your body. They work at a cellular level and help with stress, fatigue, depression, anger, and blocked energy. The vibrations can release blockages at the Chakras and other energy points.
Michael uses a variety of Gongs, Singing Bowls, and Bells to create a therapeutic wave of sound.
Time: 3:00 – 5:00 pm

I felt that experience processing through me for days….truly magic.
I don’t believe in this kind of stuff, but I came with a friend anyway. I was laying on my mat resisting, and when you hit the big Gong, I just opened up!
People are encouraged to sit or lie on a Yoga mat or blanket, while allowing the healing vibrations to wash over them.
Michael has been playing percussion for over 30 years, and today concentrates on working with Gongs, Singing Bowls & other metal percussion.
