In many ways, the Chiron gong provides a pathway for us to become healers. It embodies our need for healing and shows us the modalities and methods that will bring about the healthiest change. Only through understanding our own wounds may we reach into another living being to participate in their transformation. The sound bath of Chiron provides us with a context for nurturing ourselves, creating a willingness to explore deep, karmic wounds that may span generations or even lifetimes. Only through acceptance can we build wisdom, and the sound bath of Chiron works to moor us deeply in an acceptance of self. In a therapeutic setting, it provides a bond between the healer and the patient, and may be used to establish trust where deep scarring and physical trauma have been long established in the body and psyche. Chiron vibrates at a level that allows for healing of old, difficult wounds, as well as recent reconfigurations of the body through significant trauma or surgical wounds.
"Every cell in our body is a sound resonator. Every cell lives in a dynamic rhythmic pattern. Each organ has its own cycle and its own pulse. Each and every system has a cycle, rhythm, pattern, and pulse that exist in resonant harmony and sympathy to the cycles of the earth and the heavens. These body systems respond to sound vibration, as do our spiritual, mental, and emotional states of consciousness. "
