Allow the vibrations of the gongs to raise your awareness of your true Self.
1. Sedna Speaks (41:03) is an example of one of my full-length gongbaths. I initially play Mr. Charlie and, after a few minutes, bring in Sylvia and Eiyeh Asher Eiyeh. After approximately 18 minutes, I gradually bring in Al Tira (the Sedna) and eventually play that gong exclusively until about 29 minutes into the meditation. The Sedna gong is very powerful medicine - it expands and challenges our ideas and assumptions about the very nature of the cosmos, opening us to new paradigms and non-duality, and provides us with access into the deep layers of the personal and collective unconscious, our super conscious, and Universal intelligences. After this intense vibrational blast, I return to the other gongs to conclude.
2. Tsunami (23:28) "Tsunami" is an intense meditation based on the teachings of Gongmaster Don Conreaux. This piece is played solely on Mr. Charlie - the sounds are made by using a single mallet to repeatedly strike a single spot on the outer edge of the gong (corresponding with the eighth chakra, or aura) for the entire length of the piece. The pace and intensity of the mallet strikes are increased imperceptibly over time until the sounds build - like a sonic tsunami - to a crescendo about halfway through. Once the wave crests, the pace and intensity of the mallet strikes are then decreased imperceptibly over time until the sounds, and the listener, resolve into peaceful silence.
