an inspiring and special place – 2- gonging at the Tor
I was lucky to meet Norah and Odette at St Michaels Tower at Glastonbury Tor and thank them for giving me the opportunity to participate in their gonging at such a special place and also for sharing info about sound / gong healing and their own journeys with me in this blog…
Sound Healing: “In the beginning they say there was sound, the word “OM” Sound Healing is the sound of creativity itself, using sacred sound frequencies and Schumann resonance’s to help heal, clear, shift and balance whatever is going on in someone’s life!
The Gong: The Gong used on the Tor is very unique, this gong was a one-off ( it’s tuned to a specific note G2 but has many different tones when you play it ) . The wonderful musician Tim Wheater got it from Don Conreaux who had had a hand in making it. My friend Kay Kraty bought it from Tim in early 2014 and that year it was played by the wonderful Gong Master Don Conreaux at Gaunts House, it is called a Maitreya Tai Loi, it was then passed to the wonderfully talented musician Tim Wheater, who passed it on to my wonderful friend Kay Kraty. It was then passed to me as the new custodian to share its magic with whoever wants to let the vibrational feed their soul.
Odette is a Gong Master, Reiki Master and Spiritual Healer. She’s been working with Energy Healing for many years. Sound has become an important addition to her healing work, In the summer of 2015 she furthered her gong training and trained as a Gong Master. Her teachers include Grand Gong Master Don Conreaux, the creator of the Gong Bath.
I’ve always found that listening to music with my eyes closed takes it to another level and that certain sounds / music help you into a different state of being. I came across Leonard Cohen’s music about 20 years ago and regularly listen to his music, as I love his voice, its timbre and the beat and find that some of his songs help me to relax and meditate.
On this holiday, visiting Stonehenge, Salisbury, Stanton Drew, Cheddar, Glastonbury and Wells, I met many interesting people and a theme that seemed to crop up were; places with amazing sounds, sound healing and the name Michael. Maybe, as part of my journey, I am meant to discover more about sound healing. I certainly never expected to be doing my blog posts on sound healing and gonging at Glastonbury Tor, but it was such an amazing experience that I was blessed to be a part of there, that I decided to share it further.
More blog posts to come on the history of Glastonbury Tor, its energies and the white well…
