Hello, my name is Wayne Marto, founder and sound practitioner for Beneficial Sound.
When I heard the gong for the first time in the summer of 2012, I was so deeply moved by the resonating, vibrational healing qualities of the gong that I instantly knew I had stumbled upon a powerful transforming tool that required further exploration. I was swept away by a reflective sense of renewal, a releasing of unwanted emotions and a powerful sense of strong new beginnings.
I come from an extended family of musicians and have been blessed with the gift of rhythm and an ear for music, but the gong was an instrument like no other.
Over the last 5 years, I have enjoyed the pleasure of studying the gong extensively under Kundalini Gong Master, Mehtab Benton, a direct disciple of Kundalini founder, Yogi Bhajan, PHD.
His insightful teachings on style and technique have been invaluable in helping me develop my own unique, intuitive style of playing.
By the summer of 2017, I had played over 200 live events and had consistently seen my gong bath meditations generate positive feedback from listeners who have suffered from cancer, stress, trauma, chronic pain and a wide variety of physical and emotional issues.
Reflecting on this feedback, sparked a desire to expand the exposure of the gongs to a broader audience and create Beneficial Sound.
The gong has forever changed me, leading me on a journey of awakening, and uncovering my true passion: to share the healing sounds of the gong with all those willing to listen.
