IMPORTANT GONG ANNOUNCEMENT
[posted Tue 13 May]
"We regret to announce that Gong must withdraw from this year's June and July Festival dates as daevid allen needs an operation. Please focus healing thoughts in his direction."
The Magick Brother dates will not now happen as a trio with daevid. We hope that some may still take place as Mark Robson and Graham Clark duo gigs, similar to their already booked KozFest appearance.
I understand that the Yumi and Us Japanese gigs will continue with Yumi Hara and Chris Culter, but not daevid.

This is a science anybody can practice, we call it telepot contact
tele - means telepathic
pot - means receiver / receptacle
contact - means sensation of oneness with all the others in the whole world doing the same thing

this is the mystery of gong. nobody stops you from knowing but yourself.
the use of drugs to obtain similar states of mind is not recommended
The meditation method given to the Dartington Solar Quest is intended to help people of all ages to reach their higher selves while remaining physically aware. It is an exercise that helps consciousness to extend into areas that are normally only met with during sleep and to retain memory of what is experienced. It is a process that rebuilds the rainbow bridge between the physical and the spiritual levels, making a whole of that which has been divided by humankind for too long a time.
The meditation should be done in an airy room using a focal point such as a lighted candle if desired. A comfortable, upright sitting position should be chosen, either on the floor or in a chair, preferably a position in which you support you back yourself. A few minutes should then be given to ensure physical relaxation and a quietened mind.
Students should always start each meditation in prayer or invocation, tuning in to the highest in order that those concerned will guard and guide them during this period. Following the prayer, students should focus their attention upon their breathing. when the breathing has deepened, two brief pauses should be introduced into the rhythm, one at the end of each intake of breath, and the other at the end of each exhalation. Do not strain, try to relax.
On each intake of breath, students should visualize the drawing up of energy through the feet from the earth below. On the exhaling of breath, students should visualize the drawing down of the higher force and the merging of the two with expectancy and awareness.
There are many other techniques and variations of meditation to explore - the one above is offered as a hopefully clear starting point.
