Musician – Kambo practitioner (IAKP) – Shamanic Healer – Sound Healer – Sound and Video Artist
I have spent my life immersed in the wonder of music and sound, and realised at an early age the immense power of sound to bring about healing, change ways of thinking, inspire and connect communities and bring deep joy.
My personal journey through music has included deep exploration of healing music from many traditional, indigenous and shamanic cultures from the middle east and south America to the ancient Celts and Scandinavians, India, Tibet and southeast Asia. I am also a believer in the creative use of cutting edge modern technology to enhance and deepen the musical and sonic experience.
My journey into the wonder of Shamanic practice began with reading Carlos Castaneda and others in my teens, and was given boost by discovering the work of Michael Harner a while later. Then followed a deep exploration of global shamanic traditions in general and specific study of native American sweatlodge traditions, Peruvian plant shamanism, Body-based Psychotherapy (Holistic Counselling), Sacred Sexuality and Reiki. My current work is a synthesis of many techniques from many traditions, based on an understanding that there are many paths to true healing, and that each individual client has their own story and their own individual needs.
I am available for performances of Earth-connected, Heart-opening music at festivals, house concerts, markets and other events.
I also do one-on-one sound healing sessions as part of my Shamanic Healing practice, and also run group sound healing and meditation sessions in the Temple of Gaia Love (at Awakening Centre) and elsewhere, often in conjunction with my partner Laurel.
