Don Conreaux formerly known as Baba Don and Guru Jagat. Master Don was one of the five original Kundalini Yoga Teachers designated by Yogi Bhajan in 1969. Don also studied the gong writings of Dane Rudhyar. He established the Nanak Dwara Ashram Teacher Training 1970-1976 in Phoenix, Arizona. His very first teacher as a teenager in 1952 was Paramahansa Yogananda, receiving his Kriya Initiation in 1953.

Don originated

  • The Gong Yoga of Holistic Resonance
  • The title of Gong Master
  • Gong Therapy
  • The Gong Bath
  • The Gong Puja
  • Spiritual Free Jazz
  • Songs and Concerts for Humanity.


His Way of the Gong writings include:

  • Magnum Opus of the Gong volumes 1 & 2
  • Gongs of Our Solar System
  • Music of Wholeness
  • Gong Essays vol 3
  • Sacred Geometry of Starhenge
  • The Universal Chiometer
  • The Kriya Kundalini Gong Yoga Manual MEM.
  • Shruti Sutras

His formal education included a Masters Degree in Theatre, and from 1952 – 1969 was a Director, Actor and Writer in Hollywood and New York city. Today in his 88th year he continues to teach the art and science of Sacred Geometry, divination, and designs World Peace Gong & Bell Gardens of which there are now sixteen established Internationally. All are dedicated to the coming first day of World Peace, Planetary Cooperation in a world without violence for our children of the New Millennium.


"For the past 40+ years, Don Conreaux has brought the mystical and entertaining sounds of the ancient bronze gong (tam tam), bells, bell bowls, shofar and the spiral sea horn (conch) to millions of listeners around the world."

He has appeared on numerous television and radio programs as performing artist and talk show guest, holds 2 degrees in Theater Arts. Mr. Conreaux has worked throughout his career in theater, in both film and television in Hollywood as an actor, writer, and director before arriving in 1984 to NYC. 

"The bronze gong has since ancient times been thought to exemplify the sounds of the universe; the sacred conch suggests the sounds of whales, elephants, dolphins, and wolves." These sounds summon the forces of nature," offers Mr. Conreaux. He is a genuine Gongmaster, as well as artistic director of The Mysterious Tremendum Consort and School of Sacred Sound. Previously, Don performed as one of the original members of the singing bowl ensemble called One Hand Clapping

As a writer, actor and director in theater, Mr. Conreaux was greatly influenced by Alice A. Baily's Esoteric Sound Healing, as well as Gene Youngblood's writings on on the subject of visually induced synaesthesia. In 1969 he produced and directed the first of his "Concerts For Humanity" which was called The Divine Union , and used for the first time, the ancient bronze gong with its powerful 'layering tones'.

Theatrically impressed by Gratowsky, and musically marked by composers Rudhyar and Skriabin; while on a Gandhian Salt March across the US, met Robert Muller of the UN and was struck by Muller's Day of World Peace Concept and its simultaneous ringing of a multitude of gongs and bells.

  1. Conreaux's interest in ancient geomantic powerpoints, sacred geometry, and the inherent power of social rites, such as musical ceremonies using recycled implements of war, brought on the vision of designing special acoustic spaces utilizing principles of 'functional harmony' which empower the collective mind to cooperate non-violently with each other. 

    Most significantly, The Mysterious Tremendum Consort can also be understood as a resonant tribute to Russian composer Alexander Skriabin's earlier vision of a 'Mysterium' in which attempt to "re-tune the world”.
