The Earth Gong was introduced as part of a meditation/relaxation session held here at Platte Valley recently by Gregg Wilkins. Besides his work in Nutritional Services, Gregg is an accomplished musician, composer and percussionist and has been creating soundscapes/compositions for most of his life. He attended the State Institute of Sonology in the Netherlands and the Chicago Musical College. He has studied with Richard Rudis and is a Reiki Master and Deeksha Blessing Giver.
The gong has been used for centuries by various cultures all over the world …for ceremonial practice, calling meetings as well as alerting people to approaching visitors. In some forms of Yogic tradition the gong is used to awaken different feelings so that people may get a deeper understanding of themselves.
