During our travels to Thailand. Cindy and I came across a temple gong and had made arrangements for it to be shipped to Meditation Valley in Cottonwood.
The gong took three months to travel from Northern Thailand to the port of Oakland California. Firstly traveling multiple days via truck to Bangkok, Then on by ship to South Korea and then across the Pacific to San Francisco. Finally it took two hours to travel north to Meditation Valley in Cottonwood. Quite a journey and an adventure and we hope the new gong will bring many years of inspiration to those who visit and practice with us.
