My Personal Experience Learning with Michael Bettine in Gongtopia

During the Thanksgiving Holiday…
I was blessed with the opportunity to have a private 6 hour lesson with Michael Bettine, a master percussionist and artist with more than 40 years working with gongs and metal instruments as a musician. Working with Michael and his Gongs in his recording studio was a spiritual experience for me. There is a sort of magic that happened for me. As one has been studying the alternative healing arts for over 25 years, this meeting with Michael Bettine, another artist who’s techniques spring forth from a different lens – the lens of a classically trained musician who happens to love the work of John Cage. I, as magician, see Michael as a magician as well. Our relationship with our craft is different, however, what we are giving our planet is quite similar. We both create art though the Gong for people that gives each individual special access to themselves. This special access gives individuals clarity and peace inside and thus creates greater global clarity and a spreading opportunity for more lasting world peace.
As long as we continue to create and share our art we are succeeding in the evolution of a healthy society and a healthy world.

When I left Gongtopia every cell in my body was buzzing my head was full of musical comets. I knew I’d forgotten to ask some questions.

Michael shared some new techniques, perspectives, and colors that have already led to Carol and me to having new resources to call upon from the Gongs, Bowls, Bells … to serve you and our community in our private and group sound therapy sessions.

Last night, November 30th, I played our Sacred Gongs much as I have in the past, adding just a smidgen of what I learned with Michael. This session for me was notably more grounding.

I, like any true healing artist, will continue to practice, learn, and expand my techniques to serve you, myself, and our world.

Meet Neptune Gong

Meet Neptune Gong
Neptune Gong’s tuning is therapeutic for the hips and cranial bones.
Neptune empowers us by enhancing our vitality.
Neptune positively impacts our emotions and helps us navigate our way through deep, dark, confusing or nebulous parts of our lives.
Neptune balances, supports and stimulates the Third Eye and Sacral Chakras.
We find it facinating that the note of the planet’s orbit is therapeutically correlated to aspects of the god Neptune.
