Gong camp is an environmentally conscious, sound therapy weekend retreat, held in the middle of 100 acres of steep sided semi wild Devon countryside.
It's for gong practitioners, gong enthusiasts, sound therapists and anyone interested in the gong, sound therapy, yoga, tai chi or dance to come together for a weekend of sound and movement related activities.
Wholesome and nutritious vegetarian/vegan meals are included during the weekend, this is real food and is mostly organic, and some special diets can be catered for if requested at time of booking.
Coombe Farm, where the gong camp is set, offers peaceful, traditional, back to nature, off grid camping in the beautiful Mid Devon countryside. This is eco camping amongst 100 acres of fields, woodlands, camping terraces, walking tracks and a small acreage of nettles grown to make leafcurd. Wildlife abounds with the land supporting both creatures of the forest such as deer, badgers, and foxes, and birds of prey including owls, buzzards, and ravens.
During the three days there will be:-
- a freestyle drum circle around the camp fire
- Friday evening entertainment
- an all night gong bath (12 hour long)
- a variety of workshops - sound therapy, yoga, dance, tai chi and gong baths
A guided tour around Coombe Farm is also scheduled for those who are intrigued about leafcurd. To explore the world of leafcurd, visit: www.leafcycle.co.uk
Gong Camp is not a weather dependent event, your enjoyment will not be compromised by a drop of rain.

Gong camp is a weekend retreat held in the countryside. I am supplying most things so that you do not have to bring very much with you.
Below is a list of essential things that you would need:-
Change of clothes.
Soap, flannel, towel, toothbrush etc.
Tent, sleeping bag, pillow.
And a torch.
own water vessel – a closed lid beaker.
A few spare tents will be on camp for those who are unable to bring a tent.
Coombe Farm is not a flat ground camp site, so a hill climb is necessary when packing up. Wheel barrows are available to help you transport your belongings to and from the camping area. Reasonable assistance will be available where time and opportunity permits. It is advisable therefore to keep your brought belongings to a minimum.
Gong camp is held in the Mid Devon countryside at an off-grid eco camp.
Nutritious vegetarian/vegan meals are included; some special diets can be catered for if requested at time of booking.
Gong camp has been set up to give gong and sound enthusiasts the opportunity to come together for a weekend to share gong and sound activities.
The aim is to have a mini-break from the demands of modern living – to enjoy being with like-minded people in a natural environment.
Just one fee to pay - no hidden extras. There is nothing for sale at gong camp.
No hard work involved, gong camp will be a very relaxed weekend retreat for those attending.
Most sound therapy training organisations request that you carry out a number of hours of Continuing Personal Development (CPD) per year to keep your qualification current or to stay a member of the organisation.
You should be able to gain CPD hours during Gong Camp as there will be several sound therapy workshops running and an all night gong puja.
I have calculated that there are approx 15 hours that can be validly submitted for CPD hours.
Please check this out with your training organisation.
