The Gong Therapy training is a certification course in using the gong and the practices of yoga to create a therapeutic and transformational experience for physical, mental and spiritual healing.
The training is for sound healers, yoga teachers, gong players, and therapists, and will give you the tools to conduct one-on-one private sessions for individual clients as well as suggestions for using the gong as a therapeutic instrument in a group setting.
