The Great Golden Gong came to Stroud on Sat 19th November – one of the world’s largest gongs! In this film, Bear Love talks about the gong and there are some clips from the ‘sound journey’ fundraising event for Stroud’s Sacred Music Festival. Bear Love who leads the sound journey, or gong bath describes it as an opportunity to experience a state of deep relaxation. The gong produces frequencies which cause the human body to resonate in harmony, and this helps to effectively clear the mind.
Bear Love says: “In the modern electronic world of compressed sound and MP3s, we are not accustomed to experiencing the gentle, full spectrum of sound, which comes from standing behind the world’s largest symphonic gong. It is literally beyond words – it vibrates inner organs, quietens the mind and transports us somewhere else, somewhere beautiful.”
