Happy Birthday to our Teacher and Grand Gong Master Don Conreaux!

Nick has been lucky enough to attend a several more training sessions with Don recently and many of you who know that we often reference Don or some of his works in almost all of our sessions.



I cannot express the gratitude we have to Don and the importance of his teachings have in our own practice.



Don travels the world, almost non-stop, and has for many many years. He is focused on bringing the gong to the world through the training of others who may one day speak for him with the gong.



There are a number of ways to get acquainted with Don Conreaux, follow his travels, and possibly attend a gong bath with him or be in the same place at the same time for a moment, or to train and learn from years of experience and reflection.



As an intro, I found that the Nature & Health's interview with him (written by Jan Purser) is interesting and paints a quick picture; You can read the interview "Gong Healing" at Holistic Resonance.   Additional articles can be found directly on the news page of Holistic Resonance

Don's personal website, including his global whereabouts, can be found here at www.DonConreaux.com. 

On facebook he of course has a personal page, but I find his page for Mysterious Tremendum to be full of links to great and frequently updated content:  https://www.facebook.com/MysteriousTremendum . 

Long before Nick and I went to visit Don, I had purchased both Gongs of Our Solar System and one of the Mysterious Tremendum Ensemble's CD's. This was a great straddle between the pure clean sessions on each planetary gong, and the performance and idea of the Gongs with Shruti. Just a tip, this is NOT good background music if you're driving. but it's perfect for long flights (I am not sure if I just made a gong joke or double entendre but I like the sound of it! JP).

Although I highly advise getting all of Don's books, "The Magnum Opus of the Gong" is one we always have present and can provide decent background before a master training session. Don't be fooled by the books' sizes; each sentence therein is 'one inch wide but a mile deep'.

I will try to update this post soon with the best current links to Don's books and CD's - JP
