CANCELLATION & REFUND POLICY

Cancellation of a booking on the Gong Practitioner Training Course*

Up to 4 calendar weeks notice is needed to receive a full refund of the money paid less admin fees. Or the offer to transfer payment to another training led by Angela, subject to availability. Only one transfer is permitted per participant.

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).

No refund for a single Workshop payment.

If you have paid for the Course in full, Modules 1-5 in advance of Module 1 and Angela is running another Gong Practitioner Training Course at a later date, and there is space, you can transfer your full payment to that course. Only one transfer is permitted per participant.

If there are restrictions imposed which might include but are not restricted to a pandemic for example,

workshops and training weekends will be rescheduled to a mutually convenient date and the fees are non refundable.

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

INFORMATION ON THE COURSE

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.

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.

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.

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. For the exam element, students research and prepare a short Presentation from a choice of topics given by the tutor after Module 3 . The Presentation is made to the group at Module 4.

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.

You may chose to do the Course for your own personal development without wishing to graduate. In this case full participation at all Modules is required with fewer case studies and the written work tailored to suit you.

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

• begin to explore the Gong Sounds and discover how they are made

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

MODULE 1 is a CPD workshop and extra module for CoSH students.

IMPORTANT:

Please check the training dates carefully. Attending all 5 modules in full, in order, within the 12 months is a requirement for completion and/or graduation.

Once you have booked, if you find you are unable to attend a weekend, 1-2-1 Tuition may be possible, to make up the teaching. In this event, in addition to the fee there is a SURCHARGE of £180 per day.

Only 1 weekend per course can be replaced in this way.

PREREQUISITES

It’s helpful if students have already studied an energy or healing modality.Music therapy, counselling, holistic massage, complementary medicine, Reiki or yoga for example – however complete beginners are very welcome. We build the work in stages over each session so you will not be out of your depth.

WEAR COMFORTABLE CLOTHING

Workshops usually begin with informal discussion followed by a group gong bath. Please wear comfortable clothes and bring slippers or indoor shoes. No outdoor shoes around the gongs please. Bring whatever you need to be warm & comfortable throughout the weekend.

For the Gong sound experience, you will be lying on a wooden floor for about an hour – bring something very comfy to lie on plus a blanket/throw and a cushion. A yoga mat isn't enough!

ASSESSMENT

Practical evaluations at Modules 2-5.

36 x 1-2-1practice treatments (Case studies) and a Group practice session need to be carried out and written up to complete the course.

Students also need to complete a 2,000 word essay.

Students prepare and deliver a  Presentation at Module 4. This is a requirement to graduate.

N.B. Full attendance at every session in order, within the 12 months & completion of all the course work is required to graduate.

CERTIFICATE

At the end of the course, if participants have satisfactorily completed the practice treatments, written work and Gong therapy evaluations, paid for & attended every session, and satisfied the tutor they have the qualities required to be Gong Practitioners, they will be presented with a certificate of competence by the College.

In exceptional circumstances, the tutor reserves the right to curtail the training of any student considered unsuitable to be a Gong Practitioner. Exceptional circumstances might include, but are not restricted to: signs of mental illness, misuse of power/energy, inappropriate or disruptive behaviour etc.

CPD

After they have qualified College members are expected to do a minimum of 18 hours a year Continuing Professional Development. This will be discussed fully later in the Course.
