“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 3 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 long time 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 monkey minds prevent centring and grounding. The gongs allow us to find that quiet space within, offers 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 3 day Level 1 Gong Training; and 2 days of Level 3 – Playing With Others
Level 3 – Team Cat – Playing with Others, a two day workshop designed to introduce you to multi-gong, mulit-player sound experiences using advanced gong playing techniques as well as incorporating other sacred sound instruments.
This module prepares you for playing with others to offer a multi-player, multi-sound experience. Learning to play other instruments and to create a collection of your own is a natural extension of your sound music journey. From now on you will build upon the tools and skills of this workshop to further enhance your offering thereby elevating and enlightening your audience. An open beginner’s mind is all that is required. Let go and let it flow and like magic, you will be surprised. Enjoy the journey.
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.
*Gongs are provided however you are free to bring your own should you possess one.
– 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.
