Less than 4 calendar weeks notice  before the Course start date - no refunds as the venue is secured and paid.

(Including cancellation for reasons of illness). 

Single payments for a Workshop are non refundable. eg if you've paid for Module1 as a stand alone Introductory  Weekend.

Students on the Gong Course are expected to attend each Session of the Course in full, in order, as each session leads towards the next in terms of the work involved, and the group work that we do together. You cannot miss out a session and come back to it later!

If you are unable to attend all the modules one year and choose to  re-join the Course the following year (if there are spaces available), all sessions need to be attended again and the full fees paid.

The group dynamic is an important aspect of the Course – it’s a group journey as well as a personal one and your absence impacts everyone.

*** The Course refers to all Modules beginning at Module 1 up to and including Module 5.The Course start date is Module 1 weekend.

Suitable for beginners and those who have a little experience of playing the Gong therapeutically.

The College of Sound Healing Gong Practitioner Training Course is a CMA certificated training course held over five weekends within 12months. The Course is generally regarded as the premier Gong training course in the UK. It is suitable for complete beginners in Sound Healing and the Gong work. You do not need previous musical or Sound Healing training.

Completing  this course gives you the information, knowledge, tools and  qualification - acceptable anywhere in the world - to be a Gong  Practitioner able to treat clients in a therapeutic setting both on a  one-to-one basis or in groups.

The  Course was written for the College by Sheila Whittaker, who is the  senior College Gong tutor, and advisor to the College on all matters  gong-related. ​

The  world of the Gong and its use for healing is a fascinating and  relatively 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 & has been rediscovered during the last  century. 

The Gong teachings are extensive and need time to be assimilated by the participants.This is best done in a Course run over the period of a  year, to allow more comfortable integration of the powerful energies  involved.

Participants  are guided throughout the Course by an experienced, caring, supportive  tutor, and encouraged to do their own reading and studies between  sessions to further promote their training. 

Angela  only takes a certain  number of students on the Course each year, so that she has the time and  opportunity to mentor each one individually. 

Students are allotted coursework and case studies between the formal sessions to enable them to practise working with  clients, thus honing their skills and techniques, and gaining confidence  and expertise before they venture into the world to offer their  services professionally. There is a short exam at the end.

Five practical, in person teaching weekends plus mentoring and individual attention throughout the course. 

Doing  the Course over the period of a year also enables the participants to  embark on their own healing journey with the gongs - to do their own  inner emotional and self development work - so that they can clear much  of their own "stuff" and clear their own energy vibration before they  start to treat others.

This is essential when you are working in a  therapeutic capacity - we need to be able to provide a strongly held  safe, supportive space for our clients, and know that when the gongs  inevitably do their clearing work during a gong bath, that we can be  fully present to support clients in their healing process.

Each participant will need access to an appropriate, quality gong by Module 2. Full information on choosing and sourcing a gong, is given at Module 1 when you have the opportunity to hear & play different gongs from Angela's collection.

At Module 1 you will:

• receive a Gong Sound Experience from Angela 

• play and experience different Gongs

• learn how to give a simple, seated Gong Sound session to family or friends

• discover some theory on the Gong and how they are made

• learn about different types of gongs, mallets & stands and where to source them

MODULE 1, CPD workshop and extra module for CoSH students.

Thank you again for being such a wonderful tutor, you have given me bucket-loads of encouragement and a really refreshing connection with the gongs. I've really enjoyed being with the group and feel totally lucked-out that I was a part of it.
