Holiday Gift: 10 Essential Pieces of Music for You

I was listening to a friend named Golda, who was a lot older than me. She was telling me about a concert in the early 60s in a small cafe in NYC featuring the likes of John Coltrane and Eric Dolphy. She said the music was of such a quality that everyone was just in tears. I listened and then, said to her: I am so jealous. I wish I was there.' She just looked at me and answered, famously: 'Now...

10 Reasons Gong Baths are a Big Deal

If you know me, you know that I like to joke around almost all the time and about almost everything. There is just very little in this life that I find that I can take seriously. So much of it seems hilarious to me. There are three distinct areas of my life I take very seriously. One area of life is that I care deeply about people. I care about fellow passengers on a bus, I care about those I eat...

Three paradigm shifting lessons from Mark Deutsch

It is an understatement to say that learning how to play the gongs is unique. In many, maybe most, ways it is very different from learning other sorts of musical instruments. For example, if you were to learn piano, typically you would get lessons from a piano teacher.  Of course, you actually don't need to get lessons to play the piano. You can go it alone, and I wouldn't think it was the worst...

Why you are unhappy.

"Because 99.9 percent of everything you think, and of everything you do, is for yourself—and there isn’t one.” ― Wei Wu Wei (German translation will be forthcoming.) What does this mean? The first clue is in the words 'self ' and 'one.' The illuminating thought here is that the self is an object and not a subject. This is not merely semantics. It is not merely a thought exercise. It is...

3 Easy Steps to a Deeper/Better Gong Bath

First let me say this; none of these steps are necessary. I know, I know; this is a terrible way to start a blog article in which I try to get you to do some stuff, but I've got to be real, before I start doling out the advice :-) The truth is the most crucial step for a great gong bath is getting to the gong bath! If you come, it will work. No matter how you feel and what mood you are in, you...

10 Meditations to Supercharge Your Gong Bath & Life

Before I ever picked up a mallet and hit a gong with it, I had been teaching meditation for decades. I have taught most of the following meditations and have experimented with all of them. I chose these meditations as something you can practice while at a gong bath to supercharge your experience and make the results long lasting and profound. You can also practice any of these meditations, except...

Seven of my favorite things about giving gong baths.

I love that a powerful gong bath only happens in the 3D world.  Of course there are plenty of gong bath recordings and also players giving online gong baths, but you won't find me doing that.  I just don't think it is possible or even desirable.  I love how to truly experience a gong bath, you need to be there! The connection between player and audience, the feeling of the vibrations, the...
