Richard Rudis created the first original Gong Bath™ experience twenty years ago and has performed over 1,000 Gong Baths in the US & internationally helping well over 35,000 participants. Using principles of Vajrayana Buddhism, specific sacred geometry, mathematics & instrumentation a dynamic meditative experience is created where each participant is acoustically guided, via harmonic overtones, into realms of physical well-being, emotional balance, cellular healing and spiritual awareness. Carefully designed vibrational constructs are used to further entice the brain into Alpha/Theta/Delta wave-scapes of creativity, relaxation and enrichment. A sound healing pioneer with thirty years of Buddhist scholarship. His extensive collaboration with other sound healing researchers and studies in Eastern energy healing have resulted in the development of a unique sacred sound healing techniques known as a 'Gong Bath™, holding the trade mark since 2008. Currently he is writing a book on this subject including specialized playing techniques and supportive philosophies.
