A Gong Bath™ is a powerful yet gentle sound healing/awakening experience. During the session one can use the power of the Paiste Planetary Earth Gong to heal and awaken wanted and unwanted energy from ones mind, body, and spirit. Through this sound healing one can experience deep relaxation, bliss, and clarity. In addition, feelings of stress, anger, and fear may be felt during the ritual. Using your intention, breath, and the vibration of the gong, one can enhance the wanted feelings and release/transmute what is unwanted.
Cedar Bear has been trained in the lineage of Richard Rudis who created the original "Gong Bath™". Cedar's Gong Bath's and concerts include elements from Nada Yoga, DJ mixing, drumming, Tibetan Buddhism, Tantric Hinduism, sacred geometry, and Reiki. This creates a meditative experience in which each participant is acoustically guided via harmonic overtones, into realms of physical & mental/emotional well-being as well as cellular healing. Carefully designed vibrational constructs are used to further entice the brain into Alpha/Theta/Delta wave-scapes of clarity, peace, and wholeness which promotes physIcal, mental, and spiritual awakening, wisdom, and healing.
Richard Rudis, the original creator of the 'Gong Bath™", describes what a Gong Bath™ is:
"A ‘Gong Bath™’ is an expression of ‘Sacred Sound’ which is constructed of sound frequencies, harmonics and overtones rooted in Buddhist teachings and practice techniques. It is a powerful vibrational journey which positively affect emotional balance, cellular healing and spiritual awareness. It is an alchemy of eastern philosophy, bioenergetics and quantum science resulting in a most powerful healing modality. Within every ‘Bath’ each participant is bathed with rhythms, tonalities and multi-tonal octaves that are naturally revitalizing, stress reducing and profoundly healing physically, mentally and spiritually."
Cedar has been granted permission from Richard Rudis to use the term Gong Bath™.
Cedar Bear has been studying and offering sacred sound healing since 2009. The sacred sound tools he uses are a 38" planetary earth gong, didgeridoos, shakers, drums, crystal singing bowls, drum, and chimes. He offers Gong Baths™ and Didgeridoo Sound Journeys solo and with his wife Kriyanna.
Cedar Bear received the title of Certified Gong Practitioner by Gong Master Mehtab Benton in 2019. He has studied Nada Yoga (the yoga of sound) extensively with Bhagavan Das and Michael Stirling. He is currently studying in the Gong Bath™ lineage under gong master Richard Rudis and deepening his learning of the art of the didgeridoo with master Rob Thomas of Inlakesh.

**It is common for people to have spontaneous healing experiences during a sound healing. There are many scientific studies which show improved red blood cell health and the dissolution of any physical ailment including cancer through the use of sound frequencies! It has been shown that plants, animals, and water can be healed with sound as well. Cedar and Kriyanna both have witnessed miraculous healing from those who attended a sound healing with them. We believe sound medicine is the next wave of the future for the health and well being of all life, planet earth, and beyond! See the vidoes at the bottom of this page for more info!
Kriyanna began her journey of awakening by receiving her first Reiki Attunement in 1996. In 2001 she became an Usui Reiki Master Teacher. In 2006 she was simultaneously initiated into both the Western Hermetic tradition and Red Left Hand Path Tantra. Over the years, she has braided the teachings of these 3 lineages together as she made the techniques her own through her practice and through teaching. In 2013, she founded Toren Collective, developed the Ecstatic Awakening Meditation (EAM) practice as well as the 9-month long Tantric Qabalah program. The programs as well as private sessions that Kriyanna leads create a unique experience that catalyze personal growth and create deep, lasting transformation. She is humbled through having the honor to serve thousands of people in our community at large.
Combining her previous developed skills with singing and the sound healing instruments has become a great joy for her. Guided Meditation, Reiki, EAM, etc are woven effortlessly together with the medicine of sacred sound.
Kriyanna is the mother of 3 boys and married to Cedar Bear. She very much enjoys collaborating with others to create transformational experiences. She has worked with folks such as: Beloved, OneDoorLand, Guardian Alliance, Entheo, Sedona Soulfire, Living Prism, Goddess Temple, Sun Gate Center, Altar Alchemy and more.
