“Jere - you are amazing!! You are truly gifted as a speaker, spiritual teacher, a gong master & singer. Thank you for weaving everything together for us to experience the Divine & Oneness. BTW - my left ear has been plugged for forever & first gong hit - it opened. Hmm. I set the intention to hear the voice of God within. Love it!!” - Ginny Kuhn, Santa Barbara, CA
“I was first introduced to the healing power of gongs by Jere, and I was not disappointed! Jere is a true artist. Once he starts playing you immediately feel transported to a heavenly meditative place. I myself have never experienced anything else like it. Even for days after I feel light, calm, and clear headed. But it gets better! Jere also offers breathwork with the gongs. This is such an amazing, healing experience! Come with an intention or let Jere inspire you with one of his many stories, and you will be blown away by the results you encounter. Jere and his wife always make you feel like family. They are so kind and caring. It's for these reasons and so many more that I absolutely love the work Jere does. I highly recommend anyone interested to go to an event and experience the bliss for yourself.” - April Wade, Grand Junction, CO
“As I went into the room, I was feeling rather stressed. There was a lot going on in my life, both personally and the Center for Spiritual Living, where I am the Senior Minister. I don’t know if we were prompted to set an intention for the event or if I just did it. My intent was to release anything unlike peace and harmony. At Jere’s direction, we began by breathing in peace and breathing out love. That was a wonderful beginning! As the Gong Bath proceeded, I envisioned waves of black gunk leaving my body temple, sometimes from deep within, sometimes it felt like it was from near my skin. At any rate, I felt myself growing lighter and lighter as the healing did its work. In the ensuing days, the lightness stayed with me as I was aware and allowed circumstances to flow through me rather than resisting them and thereby trapping them. I experienced Spirit in a profound way that evening and in the following days. I am grateful.” - Rev Anna Scott, Center for Spiritual Living, Grand Junction , CO
“I had a very profound experience at Jere’s gong meditation event last night. It’s something I will be meditating and journaling about, and going deeper with for awhile. It was kind of like having a dream where all the Universal Truths were revealed to me, and then I woke up. In the waking up it’s sometimes challenging to express what you dreamt about in the same way that you got the information. During this meditation and sound healing I was completely alert and still in the now, but also at the same time went to a place of incredible understanding. When I went to write down some key words and phrases as I tried to capture the knowledge and understandings that were being given to me, I saw the words later as only words...they didn’t have the same impact, meaning or deep knowledge that I had experienced. What I experienced might or might not be able to be explained. It doesn’t come from the mind or from reason. My life is a journey and I feel truly blessed to be here on Earth experiencing all of this...all of what we call life. I’m so utterly grateful and I’m sending you and our world so much love!” - Hope Suzanne, Phoenix, AZ
“Jere Friedman is one of the most extraordinary and gifted gong masters and healers around! We’re so blessed to have him and wonderful wife Ellen in our community!” - Marie Suzette Fowler, Phoenix, AZ
“Jere’s gong playing has a unique way of taking you right to the feet of the divine. At a recent gong bath I experienced a new sound he was making with the gongs and it took me right out of my body in a vortex of light. I was surrounded with female energy and she said to me, ‘Experience the unconditional love. This is who you are and this is how you change the world.’ Experiencing the unconditional love and my essence of it brought me to tears. Thank you Divine and thank you Jere” - K.S.H.
“I was blown away by the depth and beauty of the experience of your playing the gongs for us. Thank you for sharing your love and generosity in this way. Wow. Just no words to describe how much I appreciate you. What a very special and awake man you are.” L.I.
“Jere’s gong meditation attunes the cells of the body and reminds them of their natural harmony, structure and function. In a healing bath of unconditional love it vibrationally aligns body with soul and opens a portal to Oneness.” - Leonard Laskow M.D., Switzerland
“Jere, I absolutely loved being part of your sound bath. I was feeling a lot of sadness and I woke up the next day feeling healed in so many ways.” - Ana Castronovo, Los Angeles, CA
“This gong meditation experience gave me the opportunity to hear some subtle changes in the beautiful vibrations that resonated so deeply within me. Every cell in my body seemed to be in harmony. Your love of the gongs is majestically translated in your playing. Your willingness to answer questions and share your love of this sacred music is greatly appreciated.” - J.P.
“I was so energized and moved by the Holoenergetic Healing Gong experience a few weeks ago. During the meditation I gained insight in several aspects of my life and was energized for hours afterwards. I even made the decision to purchase a chair I’ve been lusting after for a few months. I’ve affectionately titled it my “Chair of Enlightenment”. Thank you both for helping me to raise my vibrational energy!” - A.F.
“Jere, you and your gongs have been the talk of the weekend for many. Your love of the instrument and your thoughtful, careful presentation (and all that went into making it happen quickly with ease and grace!) were gifts to us all. May the blessings of the weekend be returned to you ten-fold and continue expanding and unfolding, as does your personal spiritual journey.” - J.G.
“Thank you so much for a beautiful practice. There are no words fitting to express my gratitude for the gift of your presence and offering. I came home full of peace, joy and the beautiful feeling of being connected to all of life. Thank you! What a precious gift you have to be able to bless others with.” - D.J.C.
“The gong yesterday was tremendous.” - M.Z.
“I was both transported AND transformed. . . I was certainly moved, it brought me into another place. . . The interface & experience was empowering, and makes us more confident in who we are. It cleared the air of extraneous conflicts & anxieties, making us able to see ourselves & the world with greater clarity.” - Greg
“To be Gonged! It is absolutely wonderful! The experience is pure bliss as the undulating waves of music wash over you allowing your body to synchronize with the powerful wave patterns and bringing your body’s vibrational energy into harmony thereby naturally aligning your chakras. This is a fine tuning of your body, self and soul. It is as though you have become the tuning fork allowing all of the glorious benefits of magnificent harmony to saturate your being and bring the whole of you into alignment with your true state. Such wonderful and powerful work and all you have to do is lie there. Portals open and whole worlds expand within the notes when you open your heart and let the gong do its job of harmonizing your entire self into a blissful vibrating being and all you have to do… is lie there… what fun! Keep it up…. get gonged!” - Roger Schwartz, Phoenix, AZ
“We had a fabulous time [at the Summer Solstice gongbath]. What a nice park, too! [My husband] said: “Every legislator should be required to attend this”. My whole system felt better + healed. [He] said the pounding inside his head stopped (didn’t know he lived with constant pounding). We got home at 9:30 completely energized. A great program! Please keep it up!! Thanks again.” - T.C., Phoenix, ZA
“A heartfelt thanks to you for facilitating the gong bath at the West Valley Center for Spiritual Living. I’m feeling much lighter today in the heart center over a situation I’ve been stuck in for a very, very long period of time. - J.T., Peoria, AZ
