Welcome to Planet Gong Stands

"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" - Yogi Bhajan

The Power of the Gong

My name is Lou Maurer and I have trained as both a Gong Healing Therapist and a Kundalini Yoga Teacher.

About Us

Harmonious Physical, Mental & Emotional Well-being

My wife, Siri Shakti Kaur, who is also a Kundalini Yoga teacher, inadvertently created a bridge for me from the practical into the spiritual when she introduced me to Mark Swan. Mark – a long established Gong Master held one of his incredible Gong Baths and I was hooked.

I connected at a very deep level with the extraordinary sounds I heard emanating from the gongs and the visions these sounds produced within me. I continued to immerse myself in these gong experiences which led me to learn to play the gong myself.

From a young age, I was creating things, and liked to sort out practical problems and working out how to make things work, generally out of wood. I followed that by becoming a carpenter and have been working with wood for over 30 years.

I purchased my first gong and soon found myself wanting to design something very beautiful and practical to suspend my gong from. As I work with wood a great deal in my life, and have a special affinity with this natural element of nature, it seemed the perfect medium to use to compliment the natural elements of the gong.

About Us

Harmonious Physical, Mental & Emotional Well-being

Iam extremely passionate about both working with wood and playing the gong. I believe these two aspects work in perfect harmony with each other.

Mark & I had many long conversations about what a stand should be and I went away to design my first stand. Although this prototype was not the best or final design, it is still in use today. After many hours of soul-searching designing, I arrived at a new version of the curved wooden stand, tailor made for the individual gong player.

There are now several new Gong Stand designs in the pipeline as I am always seeking to build new and beautiful designs. I am hoping to introduce these onto my website later in the year.

Mark & I continue to work together both creatively and play the Gongs in gong baths all over the country and now in Europe. You can find us in Germany, Belgium, France, Denmark and Switzerland.
