Connect with our history and practice self-care on the beautiful grounds of the historic site of the 1969 Woodstock festival.

Gong Transformation is a sound performance with Energy Clearing.  The listener is an active participant in the healing and entertaining sound waves that envelop and pass through the body on a cellular level.  While laying down in a comfortable position with blankets, cushions, eye pillows, and bolsters, many things happen as the sound of the Gong moves in the room: increased awareness, relaxation, visions, dream spaces, and the suspension of time.  This is nothing less than a transformative experience.

About Your Instructor

Marc J. Switko has been exploring the far reaches of gong playing as a therapeutic, meditative, and performance modality for individuals and groups with solid results. He uses the gong and various other sound instruments in his public and private vibrational healing and meditation practice as a stand-alone treatment and in tandem with counseling and psychotherapy (when requested- He is a NYS Licensed Psychotherapist and Counselor).  Utilizing gong music as an empowering, healing tool has opened new pathways of compassion and empathy for Marc and he is excited to be sharing these powerful sound waves with others.  He participated in an intensive certification residency in Fall 2016, studying Gong for use in both healing and performing modalities with Master Don Conreaux, one of the five original Kundalini yoga teachers designated by Yogi Bhajan in 1969.
