WHO ARE WE
Founded by Master Gong Avatar, Sotantar Suraj in Newport Beach , CA, the Gong Avatar Academy is a growing community of Gong Avatars. In addition to our original community in CA, the GAA has also expanded to the East Coast with trainings in Miami, FL led by Trinity Devi.
Through a process of direct apprenticeship we dive into a journey of self study of the Force Within and in All. We use the Gong as a mirror, studying and applying ancient and modern practices in the matrix, using the principles of nature and the universe, sound and vibration to enjoy the totality of who we are.
This is a journey towards Awareness and Self-Empowerment, raising in consciousness as individuals and collectively.
Discovering a beyond mastery state. Commanding and accepting all our thoughts , emotions, feelings and actions. Cultivating the Avatar State, embracing the One and the All.
