Gong Immersion

with Ken Goff


Date: Sat. Feb. 16, 2019 Time: 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm
Normal Heights – Main Studio

Kenneth E. Goff is an accomplished Gong Whisperer/Percussionist, Level 3 Reiki Master, a Holistic Health Practitioner specializing in Asian Body Work and Massage, Yoga Instructor, and Meditation Guide.
Ken’s sound immersion sessions at Pilgrimage will employ a variety of techniques, including gongs, harmonium/bowls and chanting
He creates a safe and supportive space to focus the mind, relax the body and connect the spirit, to manifest a self-prescribed intention for both personal and group immersions with wind and V element gongs. This offering will include a minimum of seven gongs.
People who experience gong immersions react in different ways, according to their personal journey. Common reactions range from deep relaxation, healing, or cleansing of blocked or traumatic emotions, to a meditative voyage of exploration into one’s inner being: a journey of sound, connected to traveling the universe. What participants describe is a restorative, inner journey that they have never experienced before. The more a person journeys within the music sphere of gongs, the greater their personal revelations and deeper their inner journey.
Pilgrimage attendees will have a rare opportunity to create a heart centered immersion, connecting mind, body and spirit in a safe, restorative, and relaxing way. You will lay in shavasana pose and experience the healing effects of gongs as they harmonize and attune to your journey on earth.
Ken and his tribe of gongs have traveled the country to a wide variety of conferences, events and venues. He says, “I’ve been blessed, collaborating with devotional, heart-centered beings and musicians from many places. The world would be a kinder, gentler, safer place if the citizens of the world immersed in the sound and vibrations of a gong every day.”
Kenneth E. Goff lives in San Diego and is the owner of InXlation, where he offers gong immersions, massage and meditation services.

About Reiki:

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit and has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. Its use is not dependent on one’s intellectual capacity or spiritual development and has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds. While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki.
