Event description

Description

We are thrilled to annouce the return of GONGTOPIA with Michael Bettine here at the temple!

Imagine floating in an ocean of sound, where you can let go of all your stress and worries. Gongs, Singing Bowls, Bells, and other instruments ring out, creating waves of vibrations that wash over you. Your mind, body, and energy systems are able to realign and recharge, helping to clear out blockages, while leaving you refreshed and reawakened. In our over stressed world, these primordial sounds can help us reach a space of calm and healing within ourselves.

He is also able to speak about the instruments, putting them into a historical and cultural context; as well as demonstrating both the sounds and techniques he uses in a meditation session or concert.

Michael a professional percussionist, based in Milwaukee, WI, with over 40 years of experience playing all types of music. He bought my first Gong in 1975 and was hooked. Since then, he’s researched and studied the affects sound can have on our minds and bodies. For the past 18 years, he has been working mostly with Gongs, Singing Bowls, Bells, and other resonant metal instruments under the name GONGTOPIA, presenting Gong Meditation sessions and solo percussion concerts. He has released over 40 recordings under his name. His long running blogs, The Way of the Gong™, Art As A Spiritual Practice, and, Percussion Deconstruction™, have been embraced by both the meditation/sound therapy, and percussion communities.
