Gonging for peace...

It's funny how a few folk mentioned they would love to have heard the peace bell gong for peace last night.

For the first time ever, I chose to video and sound record the gonging, then we gonged again when I could be more mindful.

Both Barry and I use the hanging wooden beam (I think the official term is shu-moku) and together we gong the bell.

Whilst the sound echoes and reverberates across the valley, we send thoughts of peace into the world.

As you can see, it was right on dusk...

    1. It is truly beautiful Mo - we gong for peace, for death, for sadness, for healing, for birth and for remembering...

    1. I am glad I was able to share it J - the bell resonates for so long, we always stay until it has faded away...

    1. Thanks Jac - it can have that effect I think; my breathing slows, my mind slows...go well.
