Healed from Paralysis – The Transformative Power of the Voice
I will be presenting my story of miraculous healing from quadriplegia. Through sound and energy healing I was able to stand and walk just months after shattering two neck vertebrae. While I was in the hospital recovering I had the deep experience of chanting mantra and experiencing firsthand the physical, mental, and emotional transformation that arise from the focused utterance of these ancient sounds.
For the last 12 years my experience of vibration and healing has evolved into a greater understanding that indigenous earth honoring traditions offer the foundational principles for humanity to become fully healed and whole again. I serve as a sanctioned teacher of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition of Peruvian healing arts. I will speak to how AYNI or sacred reciprocity is the foundation for personal, relational, and planetary balance. I will offer some spoken word invocations in the Quechua language to call forth the awakened heart of humanity to remember our shared sacred purpose in life, to live in harmony with all our relatives.
I will also speak about the importance of including our ancestors in all our endeavors in this life. We cannot truly be healed or whole unless we have a living relationship with our ancestors. After becoming initiated as a diviner in the West African Dagara tradition, the voices of the ancestors have become very close to my heart and music.
I will share a few vocal soundscapes which I create using the BOSS RC-505 Loop Station. This has become my specialty over the past 12 years, offering layered sounds of the ancient-future using solely my voice, chanting in various languages including Sanskrit, Tibetan, Hebrew, and Quechua.
