Margarita Monleon – My Love for Gongs

My love for my gongs and their magic have become a necessary element to my life not only as a person, but as an Artist. Their music is now a part of who I am and what I do. As I make friends with these incredible healing instruments, I am always intrigued by the new sounds. It was because of my own search for healing as I fought cancer that the gongs came to me. I connected with them from their 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 it is 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 spiritual vibration around you. The gongs follow this prayer, allowing for the alchemy of sound to vibrate through you as you listen to the gongs primordial sounds. You can find more information at www.alchemyofsound.net.
