A gong meditation immerses you in the power of sound through the deeply meditative tones of the Paiste Planetary Gongs. The planetary gongs strike a resonance deep within us, attuning us to our own inner music. They remind us that we are a microcosm reflecting the macrocosm. Their rich and beautiful tones reside within us and draw us into a deep sense of peace, touching the most profound part of ourselves. It is a sonic invitation to connect our world with the larger world. A meditation with the planetary gongs is a moment to experience a greater sense of place in our cosmic home … a cosmos that at its core is a harmonic and musical universe. Come travel the ancient sound currents that have been in existence since the beginning of time.
Gongs were among the first musical instruments to be made and played by humans. There are creation myths that honor the gong as the emanation sounding the earth into being.
The Paiste Company has artisans who create the planetary gongs. They are handmade symphonic quality gongs that come from generations of experienced gong masters who deeply understand the art of gong making. Every gong is made to exacting specifications.
These gongs feature a strong fundamental note tuned to represent a natural harmonic series based on the orbital properties of the Sun, the Earth, the Moon and the other planets as calculated by Hans Cousto. Planet Gongs resonate harmonically with the cycles of the cosmos, communicating to us what has been known since antiquity as the “Music of the Spheres.” When sounded, we physically connect to their strength and power. The gongs resonate at a primal, archetypal level. These beautifully crafted gongs are therapeutic works of art and alchemy.
