The physical sound & vibration of the gong is powerful and soothing, invigorating and relaxing. Gong meditations are becoming more and more popular as the need to de-stress becomes more apparent in our society. Attendees are amazed at the vast range of sound that a gong produces, and often comment about the powerful meditative effect.
Kenny Kolter leads gong meditation sessions throughout the Chicago area. His goal is to be a sound bridge between the energy and spirit that lie within the gong and to sonically draw out or tune into the energy and spirit that resides in us all.
"A couple of nights ago I went to a gong mediation session done by Kenny Kolter which was amazing. If you get a chance to do this I highly recommend it. It's a musical healing experience that I'd describe as the universe speaking to you through music. For me it was a very physical, bodily experience. It's amazing to see Kenny so happy, so much in dharma and making a living at it."
- Stephen Kelley
In the past three years, Kenny has conducted over 500 gong sessions, workshops and presentations at major conferences, yoga studios, healing centers, Unity churches, mental health centers, and chiropractic care clinics to rave reviews and critical acclaim.
Kenny plays a Paiste 30" Zodiac Planetary Earth Gong tuned to the processional cycle of the earth. Designed primarily for prayer/healing/meditation purposes, this instrument produces a large spectrum of fascinating functional harmonics. The sounds of the frame drum, timpani, and rattle add rich tecture to the music that Kenny evokes from the gong.
"The gong meditation experience is not about me," Kenny explains. "We each have our own unique way to meditate or pray or self-heal. The gong (or drum) is a sonic backdrop for folks to get into that space to allow Source energy, God, or pure consciousness to flow. In that sacred space, miracles can happen. Whether it's a walk on the beach, going to temple, laughing with a close friend, or the gong, it's all about the expression and the allowance of the Divine in our lives."
