Sound journey Instruments

During this Sound Immersion Journey Chris will be playing vibrational sounds from 4 gongs, 2 hand-made singing bowls from Nepal and a handpan. 
​​Gong Nidra [Nidra is sanscrit for sleep] is when you remain in a neutral state of awareness of your awareness while resting in a gong ocean of holistic resonance.
 

THE GONGS:

Since the depths of time, gongs have had a deep psychological meaning attributed to them. In music, Gongs with their indescribable sound colors, have always played a prominent role. Gongs belong to the oldest and most important musical instruments of South East Asia. Their origins may be traced back to the second millennium B.C., but it is assumed that the Gong is much older. In Chinese history Gongs are mentioned around 500 A.D., attributed to a nation called HIS YU between Tibet and Burma during the reign of Emperor Hsuan Wu.

  • Synodic Moon (24")
    • This gong falls into the G Sharp range, creating a tone that can excite and raise your energy. Its frequency when calculated and extrapolated into a visual range is an orange: a bright and enthused color. Hence this gong is very good to help you meditate at times, like the Full Moon, when your internal tides are high, but you want to find your center. It is made for meditations during excited times.
       
  • Chiron (32")
    • Chiron - discovered in 1977 - the comet-asteroid that orbits mostly between Uranus and Saturn - named after the Mythic Wounded Healer a centaur half horse and half human who was wounded in the leg and subsequently pursued healing with the teaching of Apollo and eventually taught Aesclepius, the Greek God of Medicine. Chiron serves as a connecting point. It is between Saturn (traditional, structured, predictable) and Uranus (eccentric, unpredictable,and inventive). Chiron folks strive to bring new ideas into existing structures, or bring some structure to innovative ideas.
    • The Chiron Gong is a valuable gong for many alternative healers, psychologists, and sound therapists.
       
  • Dark Water (36")
    • The Dark Water Gong taps into the profundity of its healing powers. It makes water come alive energetically. This gong helps your stress leave, brings you more into the flow. Searching for the original meaning of the word “baptism” in which water is used to purify, one finds it is most linked in the ancient languages to “immersion.” Interesting that many gong players call their healing work, “Sound Immersions.” This gong can create spiritual cleansing on many levels.
       
  • Sound Creation Earth (38")
    • This Sound Creation Earth Gong is a fully unique creation with its own specific personality and form of expression. Charismatic and full in sound, this gong is a deep harmonic expression of earths emotional vibration. Connect to your deepest self with this immersive sound and bring harmony and unity to your mind, body, and spirit. 

SINGING BOWLS:

Chris uses unique Full Moon Nepali singing bowls. Handmade only once per full moon in the Kathmandu Valley by fifth and sixth generation singing bowl artists. These instruments of meditation and healing harness the subtle energy of the moon to give extraordinary and long lasting healing vibrations.  Their high energy quality of sound is truly beautiful and unique.

  • The heart chakra (F, 11') (Green)
  • The sacral chakra (D Minor, 12') (Orange)

THE HANDPAN:

Handpan (or Hang) is a term for a group of musical instruments that are classified as a subset of the steelpan. Recently invented in 2001 these hand made unique & ethreal sounding instruments are rare and will tingle your senses.

  • 20 inch 8 note D Minor scale (Sacral Chakra)
