About the gong artist
Arnbjörg Kristín Konráðsdóttir (Amanroop) plays the gong in all of the recordings on Peace Resound. She is a yogateacher and has trained playing the gong with teachers both in the US and Europe. The best teacher however is a simple one: practise and stillness while serving the naad or sacred sound current.
A sacred truthful space is valuable during transitions in ones life and it brings her great pleasure in serving at those occasions.
She has worked for the city of Reykjavik as a teacher and soundhealer for emplyees and in public events in Videy. This year she also participated in LennonOno Peace grant award ceremony by playing gong while Yoko Ono honored the participants.

"The sound of the gong is the channel of Pure Truth, and whenever Truth is experienced, healing occurs. When the gong is played, the sound vibrations immediately quiets the mind, allowing healing to occur. The gong's resonance is the very music of the spheres; the heavenly bodies of the universe. Each planet, moon and star is a gong emanating the divine sound of AUM in its variety of vibrational patterns.
The Gong Bath will immerse you in sound as you are guided to a deeper level within. The gong sounds and vibrations stimulate a meditative and contemplative state in which we have the opportunity to safely surrender control of the mind. Negativity and chaos are suspended, irregularity and resistance are cleared, and the mind, body, and soul are reset to a state of synchrony and alignment, allowing us to connect with our Authentic Holistic Self.
When the gong is played correctly we are in a state of non-locality, as if there is no player. Our subconscious mind takes over, and our conscious mind becomes selfless, our personal identity becomes trans-personal. This is a state we refer to as "the soul abode of the neutral self" abiding in Satya Nirvana or Truth Love.
In yoga this is also known as Turiya, meaning value judgment and ego is gone and True Self has come. It is from this vantage point that we may recognize the nada yoga of the gong and the power of its holistic resonance. Our intentions and suggestions become more powerful, and energies that are spiritually healing flow out to everyone."
"The gong is the first and last instrument for the human mind; there is only one thing that can supersede and command the human mind, the sound of the gong. It is the first sound in the Universe, the sound that created this Universe. It's the basic creative sound. To the mind, the sound of the gong is like a mother and father that gave it birth. The mind has no power to resist a gong that is well played."
