The College of Sound Healing Gong Practitioner Training Course is a CMA-certificated training programme over five weekends, over the period of one year. The Course was written for the College by Sheila Whittaker, who is the senior College Gong tutor, and advisor to the College. Completion of this training will give participants the information, knowledge and tools required to become a specialist gong practitioner.

The world of the gong and its use for healing is an extensive, fascinating and little-known subject. This course aims to bring together and impart as much relevant knowledge and wisdom, ancient and new, as is possible in the time allotted for the course. Some of this knowledge was lost in the mists of time and rediscovered during the last century. Students are encouraged to do their own reading and studies between sessions to further promote their training.

  • Homework will be allotted after each session, and case studies required for certification.
  • A short written exam will be set at the end of the course.
  • Each participant will need to have use of their own gong by the 2nd session.
