In the past week I have fulfilled many personal firsts - to travel with my gongs overseas, to play at a major international festival, and to be the resident artist in a prestigious property. The juxtaposition between the grassy, hot, dusty expansive fields of Pattaya overflowing with Wonderfruit party goers and the floating atrium and Turkish bath at The Siam Hotel in Bangkok made last week seem surreal. Whether it was looking over the sea of heads and arms enthusiastically following me in the mantra for breakthroughs (which continued on the dance floor all night) to privates on the lawn overlooking the Chao Phraya River I felt deep fulfilment.
This week I reflect on my journey thus far. From carrying one gong and stand over my shoulder to hiring a 5.5 ton truck packing 20 gongs. From playing solo to multi-gong, multi-player events. From a small group of loyal enthusiasts to international recognition. This week proved the demand for the meditative and healing power of the gongs transcends demographics, cultures and international borders.
The growing list of accomplishments and the number of lives I have touched could not have been possible without your trust and support. Your personal recommendations, testimonials and referrals allow me to fulfil my purpose of elevating energy - one gong and one step at a time. I humbly thank you all.

This month we celebrate our second anniversary with a number of events. March 2 is our first evening gong to rebalance and renew with the Raindrop oils self foot massage. The following week is a condensed introduction to gong playing workshop concluding with an all night gong puja. My teacher, the foremost Gong Master Don Conreaux will be here for a concert for humanity with our house band, One Love on March 17 and the global launch of the Starhenge Peace Garden workshop March 18-19. March 20 is our celebration of spring where we play the planet gongs in alignment with the night sky for our second anniversary. I look forward to seeing you soon.
