My love for my gongs and their magic have become a necessary element to my life.  The primal sounds are now a part of who I am.

It was because of my own search for healing as I fought cancer that the gongs came to me.

I connected with them from very first sound. 

As if  the sound of the gong were an old friend.

The gongs, I feel, are my medicine to absorb

and now  my medicine to share.

I begin my meditations with a 3000 year old Japanese prayer, The Amatsu Norito.

Many years ago when I learned this prayer I was told that it raises the raises the spiritual vibration around you.

The gongs follow this prayer allowing for the Alchemy of Sound to vibrate through you harmonizing mind, body and spirit.
