“So much is carried in our bodies. The wisdom that is held within our tissues is something that we have almost completely forgotten. And yet there is no awareness more situated in the present moment than what is found in our bodies. Reginald Ray, author of Touching Enlightenment says that “with our body we are in the presence of a force and Intelligence that is filled with wisdom, that is loving, flawlessly reliable, and strange to say worthy of our deepest devotion.” Reggie Ray
This wisdom and intelligence within our bodies is also within the universe. So what happens during a Gong Immersion Meditation? As the Gong is excited, it generates waves of electrons that begin moving and drifting from atom to atom, creating an exchange and release of a specialized electron (coined by Quantum Physicist David Bohm) as a “Plasmon”. This release becomes known as the Plasmon field. These Plasmon’s (a fourth level of matter), organize and display an Intelligence and integrate whatever enters the field. During a gongbath we enter the field. The integration into the Plasmon field changes polarities with what enters the field. When the Gong rests, the field collapses.
I believe transformation and healing happen when the Intelligence released within the Plasmon field of the gong integrates the Intelligence and wisdom inherent within us. There is much to learn about quantum physics and the energy that beats our hearts, breathes our lungs, heals our wounds, directs animals to migrate, hibernate and the seasons to change. To quote Carl Sagan, “The notion that science and spirituality are somehow mutually exclusive does a disservice to both.” In a gong immersion meditation we have the opportunity to stop, to be, and to breathe into the mystery.
