“The gong is the sound of Creativity itself. One who plays the gong plays the Universe.”
– Yogi Bhajan
Join us for a two-day intensive Level 2 gong training with Martha Collard, Founder of Red Doors Studio in Hong Kong,
home of the largest collection of meditation gongs in Asia. She is a longtime yogi, founding Chairman of the HK Yoga
Society, KRI Instructor, professional facilitator and trainer.
Martha is a catalyst for emotional wellbeing. Modern man is in a constant state of stress and our monkey minds prevent
us from centering and grounding. The gongs allow us to find that quiet space within, offering deep relaxation and
rejuvenation at all levels so that we may respond rather than react to the stressors in our lives. Conducting large events
and teaching others to play, she aspires to reverse the tidal wave of mental ill health affecting the world today by offering
simple, elegant, effective solutions that are ancient in origin.
Teaching with empathy and humor she shares her knowledge through a highly interactive workshop designed to
empower you to facilitate a state of being that elicits healing and rejuvenation. She offers a variety of workshops
including a short 1.5 hours basic course, Gotta Hit a Gong; a 3-day Level 1 Gong Training; and 2 days of Level 2 – Playing
With and For Others.
In this workshop we are focusing on playing for others. You will play with intention and purpose. Leading gong relaxations
for individuals and groups requires understanding the science of sound and the application of gongs to elicit specific
results. This workshop builds on the foundations laid in Level 1. In addition you will learn how to prepare, structure, lead
and close a transformational gong experience for individuals or a group.
Upon completion of this course, you receive a Red Doors Certificate of Attendance documenting you have been trained in
the necessary skills to play the gong with intention for individuals and small groups & will be invited to play in the all-
night Gong Puja.
In this workshop you will learn to:
• Build confidence with the skills learned in Level 1
• Understand the basis of the science of sound as a therapeutic
tool and its application using gongs
• Understand the need for client assessment
• Know how to prepare yourself and the environment to
achieve maximum effect
• Know how to structure a session with a particular intention
through the choice of gong, meditation, mantra,
• Reinforce intuitive play and centering practices while playing
• Understand how to use a gong during a yoga practice.
*Gongs are provided, however you are free to bring your own.
– ABOUT THE FACILITATOR –
Throughout most of her adult life Martha pursued alternative practices initially out of curiosity, and then as a means of self-development. Her journey stretched from Reiki to TM, from Iyengar yoga to Vipassana, from labyrinths to gongs and much more. She was the founding Chairman of the Yoga Society of Hong Kong and has recently completed a Sound Therapy certification in the USA. She is expanding her knowledge by pursuing higher levels of yoga therapy training and sound healing. Her current focus is on the ancient practices of labyrinths, gong meditation and Kundalini yoga. Through these practices she found balance, strength and understanding. Leaving the world of corporate management consulting behind she founded Red Doors Studio in 2015 as a platform from which she shares her skills and knowledge with the community. Currently the studio serves as a bridge between old and new offering ancient practices such as yoga, walking meditation on labyrinths and deep relaxation with gongs to communities to uplift and transform by facilitating a sense of calm and peace.
