The gong works on many levels from the physical to emotional and spiritual in order to heal and transform. As the sound of the gong creates deep relaxation and clears the mind, it also aids in the reorganization of emotional energy. Gong meditation participants typically lie face up on a yoga mat or blanket in resting pose, (Shivasana), or sit in a chair to experience the tremendous healing sounds and vibrations.
