Ohmpunctuur, developed by Peter, is an evolution in the field of sound therapy. It is a reflex technique and uses the ancient Chinese acupuncture knowledge. The needles are replaced by special tuning forks with different frequencies, combined with vibrations of crystal bowls and planetary gongs. Sound (in the form of music, resonance or ‘toning’) can release stuck energy and resolve. Practicing music helps us to become aware of our inner soul or cosmic sound tone.
Tibetan Singing bowls
The Tibetan singing bowls and the traditional use of the sound and vibrations of the Tibetan bowls are central in the lectures and workshops that Peter gives. What is the impact of the sounds to the body and how can you help yourself, and protect yourself for emotion and fear, but also energetic pollution from others. He uses sound and mantras that relate to the body and mind of man.
OM is the combined resonant tone of Life Force that fills the Infinite Living Universe. ONG is that tone impinging on Matter, creating the physical Universe which resonates like a gong from atom to galaxy. A Gong is a cosmic engine of power and is appropriately named after the sound that it makes. It is an instrument that releases this all powerful OM resonance which, although constituting all materiality, is not limited to finite manifestation. It produces Holistic Tones which have ‘fullness’ and to which the whole being responds. By playing our body, mind and emotions as an organic gong, we are lead to the OM power of our Greater Self. Just as a gong struck repeatedly Gongongongongong…. soon produces a continuous OM. By practicing Gong Yoga we are brought back to the source of greater health and mental balance, our True Selves.
Peter Gouw, musician, teacher and working as a music (sound) therapist at his practice ‘Praktijk Positief’, guides and supports individuals and groups in finding their personal natural (sound) destination. The psychology of the chakras and aura are central in his treatments with tuning forks and singing bowls because of their own timbre and resonance.
