When we rest in a sound bath made by the Venus gong, we are compelled to drop our protective armor and the internal narratives we have created to keep us from engaging in healthy relationship. The vibration of Venus is meant to warm our hearts and soften our intellects so that we can merge with others in meaningful dialogue to build community and mutual understanding. Part of our mission here on earth is to learn about our ultimate oneness with all others through the emotional vehicle of love. The Venus gong is used to therapeutically dispel feelings of loneliness, bitterness and wounds of the heart. It strengthens the feminine aspect, encouraging greater fertility in both mind and body. The movement is from internalization and avoidance to active loving engagement and willing participation.

"The Neptune gong arrived, it spent some time at my home for us to become acquainted, and now is in my therapy office. What an incredible presence! It really is like a living being. I am very grateful. I feel like the gong is a good teacher, ally, and motivator in my study and practice. "
