Beautiful Bjork : Utopia

It goes without saying really, that Bjork is one of the most important artists of the 21st Century and is fully attuned to the possibilities of healing through voice, sound and music. Her otherworldly qualities often suggest that she is a creature somewhere between human, superhuman and extra terrestrial; yet her constant humility and contradictory mix of fragility and strength are beyond endearing. She is a true living icon and a talent like no other.

We love this behind the scenes video on the making of her album Black Lake.

She is always full of surprises with every new album she offers and with a plethora of talented collaborators in her creative embrace. Her look and sound are always on the cutting edge of style and innovation and her new album Utopia is nothing less than mind-blowingly impressive both sonically and visually.

Check out the latest music video for “Blissing me out” and then go and have some fun browsing around her website BJORK HOMEPAGE and listen to/buy the new album BJORK UTOPIA  and you will likely find yourself being transported into multiple other dimensions at the same time.

Blissing Me Lyrics:

All of my mouth was kissing him now into the air i am missing him is this excess texting a blessing or just two music nerds obsessing he reminds me of the love in me i’m celebrating on a vibrancy sending each other mp3s falling in love to a song this handsommest of wickermen he asked if i could wait for him now how many lightyears this interim while falling in love with his songs his hands are good in protecting me touching and caressing me but would it be trespassing wanting him to be blissing me robbing him of his youth cliffhanger like suspension my longing has formed its own skeleton bridging the gap between singletons sending each other these songs the interior of these melodies is perhaps where we are meant to be our physical union a fantasy i just fell in love with so i reserve my intimacies i bundle them up in packages my rawward longing far too visceral did i just fall in love with love?

KAILASH KOKOPELLI cover

What type of healing do you do?

Sound Medicine which is the highest form of Sound Healing or Frequency Healing.

What is Sound though? Sound is a wave from the ocean of silence. Born from silence and returning to it’s source. Sound is a bridge to source within. From that source all is born and to that source all returns. All life force and healing comes from there.

In the heart of every atom pulsates vibrating energy translated into frequency and transforming itself into sound. Our physical ears can hear only a very limited sound spectrum. We would be overwhelmed If we could hear all sounds of the universe with its galaxies, solar systems and planets. Even if we could hear only the collective sound emanations from our Mother earth with all her life forms in the mineral and plant kingdom alone – we would hear infinite layers of sounds constantly.

Simplistically, we can say that all of creation is energy on different levels of vibration. What differs a stone from a plant and an animal from a human is the different frequency keys, pulses and combinations of frequency defining the specific form and its function. Our body is a symphony of sound with each organ emanating in its unique frequency. If this frequency is distorted, the organ and its function is compromised. Disease like cancer has its own unique frequency spectrum. By identifying, tuning into and changing the frequency; the cell membranes of the cancer cell for example start to disintegrate and break similarily to a mirror or glass shattering from the pitch of a high voice which comes into resonance with it.

Amongst a great variety of instruments including the power of voice, my main sound healing tool is the Didgeridoo. The ancient mother of all flutes or father of all trumpets  covers a great range of frequency through the harmonic scale along with a deep vibration of the fundamental tone, loosening up crystallisations in the physical as well as subtle bodies and energy centers; stimulating the flow of vital force and initiating self-healing processes. Before going a little deeper into the vast field of Sound Medicine though, I wish to point out that I don’t do healing.

Healing is done through me when I am in alignment with source.

All manifestations and powers come from source. Healing powers come from source. There is no one who can “do“ healing. Healing happens by grace under the right circumstances. 

The art of healing is to step aside and align to the highest, through the power of prayer, meditation and pure intention. 

Be like a hollow bamboo – straight, firm and strong through flexibility yet empty. If we are too full with ourselves we stand in the way of grace. Humbling ourselves to rise on the wings of devotion and raising the vibration will bring us in resonance with the field of pure consciousness or source energy. When we are plugged into this field we can channel the energy from there to activate the self-healing powers within those who seek healing.

Mana or merit accumulated and charging our energy field through ceremony and pilgrimage to sacred places as well as being in contact with masters and benevolent beings of course will help to channel and transmit healing processes faster and more effectively.

Daily practice of a high vibrational life style through yoga, meditation, chi movements, cultivation of sexual energy, superfoods and organic vegetarian-ideally raw- vegan diet is the foundation for a healer to become a true instrument of healing.

Trust and faith of the receiver into the healing channel is also important to allow and activate self-healing powers. Doctors have no effective influence if the patient is not receptive and willing to get well and make dedicated steps and changes for healing and better health to happen.

Some people are addicted to sickness and self-destructive tendencies.

Sound offers a tool though which a person can identify and unlock such patterns, through its gentle penetration and soothing vibration.

Inner silence is essential to hear the song of the heart which is our compass for guidance as a healer and adviser. Silence is from where all sound is born and to where all sound returns. Sound therefore is a powerful bridge to source as mentioned above.

Since 1990 I have been a pioneer in the field of sound healing, exploring sound medicine through a great variety of instruments from all around the world. Specifically, sacred instruments of the indigenous traditions like the didgeridoo of the Australian Aborigines and the Native American prayer flute as well as ceremonial medicine drums and rattles to accompany spirit chanting. Uncountable seekers have been touched by the healing sound vibration in individual and group sound medicine treatments. The soundscapes woven with tibetan- and crystal-singing-bowls, gongs, monochord, shrooti box along with the harmonics of the didgeridoo and overtone chanting function as a carpet of sound to journey through different layers of physical, emotional, mental and astral bodies to source within where all healing, rejuvenation and new strength can be found. 

Remember: Self-healing processes are initiated from a place of deep silence to which healing sound can guide us. Melting into the presence of being allows the turbulence and the motion of emotion and mind activity to come to a place of inner peace and deep rest.

Contractions and crystallisations in the subtle bodies and energy centers known as chakras can dissolve and loosen up to allow vital force to harmonise, cure and energise the body, mind, spirit organism.

These crystallisations usually have been caused by traumatic experiences in the past and can find different individual expressions to be released.

Some release may happen through physical sensations of shaking, cramping and eruption of pain-points which then can be dissolved through deep breathing into these sensations. Other release & healing may happen on an emotional or mental level through key images emerging from childhood, womb or earlier life time memories.

Within almost 3 decades of facilitating sound healing concerts and sound medicine treatments I was allowed to witness uncountable miracle healing phenomena taking place. From instantaneous physical healing to retrieval of fragmented soul parts as well as  reactivation of dormant skills, cellular and past-life memories.

I am infinitely grateful that I developed the skill and was given the gift to transmit healing power through sound and be of service for wellbeing, good health and healing individually and globally.

As one of the first European Sound Healers and Didgeridoo players I introduced the Mother of all flutes to Germany back in 1989.

This experience fulfilled prophecy and initiated the path of Sound Medicine for me and many others to follow.

When did you discover an interest in healing?

In my childhood I spent a lot of time alone in the forest playing my Prayer-flute to the Great Spirit. In response, the breath of spirit would come on wings of wind whenever I sent my prayers that way. The wind told me about major global changes which were to come and rock our world. 

I knew I had to listen deeper to the heartbeat of sacred mother earth and learn to commune and communicate with her through the mineral, plant and animal kingdom. I studied the healing power of medicinal plants from when I was 10 years old and learned to hear the song of stone through which I could read the energy of crystals and other (semi) precious stones.

Maybe this gift was transmitted through an old woman I would meet sometimes in the streets of my home town. Whenever she saw me she would come and stroke over my head. She had silver hair and her name was Mrs Ambrosia. Her touch stayed with me all my life. Later I learned that she lived alone in the forest and had mystic powers as well as knowledge of medicinal plants. My interest in healing started with hearing the song of the plants and studying their medicinal properties.

When I was 13 years old a psychic friend prophecised that one day I would do healing work with my flute. Nearly 8 years later, I discovered the mother of all flutes at the river Ganges in Varanasi – one of the oldest cities in India where music has been studied since ancient times. When I felt the sound vibration of the didgeridoo played to the pink river dolphins in the Ganges I knew this was the flute my psychic friend had seen. My energy bodies and chakras were stimulated, cleansed and expanded through the sound vibration emanating from the didgeridoo played by an Australian master called Cy Rung. I knew then that my greatest calling in this life was to explore the power of sound medicine and put my life into service of healing through sound.

How did you develop your abilities and methods as a healer?

We all carry the gift of healing. Our love is healing. Good thoughts are healing. Kindness, compassion and loving words are healing. 

A knife can be used to kill or cut the bread and feed the hungry. Our thoughts can destroy or construct. It is by the choices we make and where we put our focus that we can develop our healing qualities. Yet the gift of healing is often connected to our ancestry and bloodline as well as our individual soul journey. In my lineage there have been artists, priests and healers before me and surely they have passed their healing powers through my bloodline.

I also remember past lives where I have been an apprentice to medicine people, alchemists and healers and in time became knowledgeable and experienced enough to transmit and initiate healing. In other words I brought the gift of healing with me along with the ability to communicate with the plant kingdom and the elements. At age 17 I became apprentice to my first Medicine teacher Sun Bear who initiated me through Vision Quests, Sweatlodge Ceremonies, Medicine Wheel teachings and Earth-awareness. In my early 20s I met a psychic healer and clairvoyant who I would be working with for 7 years. He saw how the rhythm, movement, frequency and healing intention with which the sound was charged cleansed and influenced the auric field and body-mind of a client in a profound way. From this insight we developed a special system and method to treat a person with sound medicine specifically and effectively. 

Why specifically do you do this work?

If one is given a gift it is a nobel duty to share this gift. To help one another in our healing and awakening process is part of a global awakening and healing of humanity. I was told once by my teacher Sun Bear that hell is the place where we sit around a big pot of food with long spoons attached to our arms and we try to feed ourselves but can not reach our mouth and starve in agony. Heaven is the place where we sit around a big pot of food and feed one another. The greatest challenge and the greatest gift is to be a healer and dedicate our life towards the healing of our fellow brothers and sisters as well as all of our relations on the planet. By healing others we can heal ourselves and by healing ourselves we can heal others and also this sacred earth.

How do you prepare for your sessions?

As mentioned before, cultivation of energy and mind-body-spirit mastery through daily prayer, introspection, meditation, self-inquiry, physical exercise and organic raw vegan / vegetarian diet are the basis for the path of a true medicine person and healer. How can we have the clarity and purity to transmit pure healing power and unconditional love if our mind and body is contaminated with toxic self-centered negative thoughts and feelings, abusive sexual desire and greed? Pure intention and service to others is essential. By feeding others with kindness and care – we care for the greater good of all and the source of all itself.

The day of individual or group sound healing sessions I choose to eat very light or fast completely. Minimum 3 days before major healing works I choose to refrain from sexual activity or practice tao yoga to cultivate my energy for healing. The most important element for me is the power of prayer, through which I can lift myself to the highest and from where I receive strength and guidance to facilitate and transmit the healing power through sound.

Do you do ceremonies when the moon is full? 

With the waxing of the moon leading up to full moon all waters and energy rises.

The day before the official full moon is from my experience the best time to facilitate all night sound healing ceremonies, meditations and prayer works. Full moon meditations are happening globally at sacred sites in temples, ashrams and private homes.
Even though I have met people who appear to have a negative association with Grandmother Moon, 
I recognise her as an emanation of the great Mother reflecting the golden light of father sun – the heart of our solar system to illuminate our night and allow the sweet and salty waters of life to rise and circulate. The Moon is offering a time of ovulation and purification to the womb of woman through her Moon-time – the promise and preparation to receive new life. Some flowers blossom only when the moon is full but all plants reach for the light to transform the rays of the sun, the moon and the stars into medicines and nurturing energy we call food for body, mind and spirit.

Why is the full moon an important time for healing?

Since the beginning of womankind & mankind the moon has influenced and inspired our dreams, sacred cycles and rhythms not just of the oceans and sweet waters but also of our blood and emotions. Water carries information and so is our blood. Water is our life blood. The light of the moon is moving our waters and our emotions and therefore our thoughts and mind. Our mind can become more receptive for the waves of energy carrying information from the celestial bodies during full moon. The light of the moon opens our receptivity and our psychic, magic mind. Our intuition and psychic sensitivity is essential to tune into the energy bodies of those who seek healing in order to „see“ the root of a disease or sickness – may it be physically, emotionally or mentally. The celestial forces and healing powers are increasing with the rising waters guided by the moon. Therefore the full moon is a brilliant time for divination, meditation, deep inner journey work and self-reflection as well as tuning into the conscious and subconscious collective field also known as the Akashic records and source energy.

Since the dawning of humankind important initiations, sacred ceremonies and healing rituals have been practiced under the full moon or solstices and equinoxes of the sun.

What transformations have you experienced through doing this work?

The transformational process on the path of a sound medicine (wo)man or sound healer is continuous. Study of the great mystery and source of healing powers from where all healing arts develop must never stop. The fine-tuning and purification of perception and development of ones intuition, psychic abilities and healing skills are crucial.

I have gone through excruciating pain and learned to heal myself from life threatening sickness as an initiation to help heal others and develop compassion for others pain and sickness. I had to make sacrifices of comfort zones to maintain a life style which would allow me to actually effectively help people over the last several decades of my life.

By cleansing the field of a patient, a healer often takes on sickness of others and then needs to have the fire and skill to burn up and transform this sickness. Eating sickness and offering it back to source can be challenging since at times particles can get stuck and reminiscence can accumulate or linger. The healer therefore needs dedicated focus to continuously and passionately raise his vibration to such an extend that in his field alone ideally disease can not get attached but is burning up instantaneously.

The healer must have practices to gather inner strength and strengthen his inner fire. Cultivation of sexual energy is an essential part of keeping the fire pure and strong. Yogic life style and clean diet, conduct and the development of compassion as well as a sharp sword of the mind to cut through illusion, masks, veils and negative attachments is an important part of a healers journey.

Thus it is an ongoing process to fine tune, develop psychic abilities, psychological understanding and expand awareness into the subtle realities and dimensions of being.

A healer must be healthy to effectively heal and initiate self-healing processes yet without experiencing sickness and pain themself, a healer cannot really heal others nor develop true compassion and understanding of a disease.

The wounded healer is the one who is offering his life to heal others and through that heal himself. His wound also allows him to understand the wound of others and offer a healing balm through compassion and kindness in the form of his different healing arts.

What transformations have you witnessed in others?

I have been blessed to witness Sound Medicine initiating profound self-healing processes in individual treatments as well as group sound healing concerts over the last 3 decades.

We had a young Estonian woman with 5 cm tumorous cysts in her ovaries who got cured completely through one night of sound medicine application. The following day she went for a scan and the doctors could not find the cyst anymore. It was gone completely and never returned. There are many similar reports of miracle cures, healing and purification of the physical, emotional, mental and also from attachments and imbalances in the astral bodies. Several cases of patients who suffered from Tinnitus found instant release from the ringing sounds in the ears and could relax the central nervous system through the power of intentional sound.

Here is a list of QUOTES reporting the transforming experiences many international clients have received through the healing sound.

What is your favourite music to listen to?

My favourite music is crossing genre and embracing all that is beautiful to my ears and heart. In general, I enjoy sacred world music and festive sacred classical music such as George Friderich Handel. I love tibetan, celtic and african music specially HABIB KOITE, ROKIA TRAORE. Most Realworld Productions of PETER GABRIEL though I never got deep into Genesis. Every artist has unique individual jewels and raw or polished diamonds within their recording and performance career. Seldom there is a full album with every song being a score. I am an admirer of the poetic mastery of LEONARD COHEN. “If it be thy will“ is my favourite of his jewels. Peter Gabriel’s “Dont give up“ is a masterpiece specially with KATE BUSH who is a high priestess and magic witch of pop meeting world music. Her album “Hounds of Love“ is my favuorite of her music. GEORGE HARRISON and JOHN LENNON since I was a great fan collecting all albums of the BEATLES from age 10. Invaluable original Vinyls which my father sold for nothing on a flee market without consent when I left home 3 years later. George Harrisons album “All things must pass“ and John Lennon’s “Imagine“ have been important influences both for my spiritual and musical journey in Life. TONY SCOTT “Music for Zen Meditation“ has been with me since my youth as well as KEITH JARRETT “Köln Concert“. JAN GARBAREK has resonated with me since the 80s and opened a sense of melancholic longing in World Music. Also Norwegian World-jazz pianist OYSTEIN SEVÅG who mixed & mastered my song “WALKING TREE“ and Saami MARI BOINE have inspired and touched me in Life concerts and recordings. I listened to MILES DAVIS “Bitches Brew“ when I was 12 years old and John Coltrane’s wife ALICE COLTRANE and her devotional hymns called “Turiya Sings“. I was a fan of the cult band MAGMA who sang in their own (Star-)language archaic Carl Orff-like ritualistic choir when I was that age too. I met the band leader CHRISTIAN VANDER with his Stella in an epic concert back in the early 80s.

My first rockband I saw live was The WHO at age 11. I was lucky to see the legendary BOB MARLEY at a Festival at the river Rhine back then too. As a fan of DONOVAN the first song on my guitar was his interpretation of a jewish traditional called “Donna Donna” and of course BOB DYLAN’s “Blowin’ in the Wind”. THE ANIMALS “House of the Rising Sun” and ERIC BURDON & WAR inspired me with “Tobacco Road”. JIM MORRISON and his mystic presence opened THE DOORS for me with “Light my Fire”. I never was a great fan of the Stones or Elvis but appreciated some of their songs. I learned to appreciate STING in his later years releasing amazing productions like “Desert Rose” just like PAUL SIMON’s “Rhythm of the Saints”. I also listened to Eric Clapton’s early CREAM and crazy stuff like CAPTAIN BEEFHEART and his magic Band – specially later works after his Frank Zappa collaborations. The celtic/Irish Band CLANNAD came to my Hometown and mesmerised me with traditional Irish Folk Music along with Celtic Harpist ALAN STIVELL at a Festival in France.

At 13, I left school and home to travel by myself to Ireland. I saw CHUCK BERRY and other legends there on a festival but the Hare Krishna community at that Festival near Northern Ireland taught me mala japa and my chanting of the Divine Names along with George Harrisons “My sweet Lord”. I studied transcendental Meditation and the Vedas inspired by my meeting with these Monks and my love for the Beatles.
The World of Osho opened up in the early 90’s and for me through the Music of my friend MITEN, the partner of Deva Premal.  

In the commercial pop music genre I like KATIE MELUA who surprises with interpreting deep lyrics. Intricate poetry is also written and performed exquisitely by TINA MALIA and my friend MURRAY KYLE with his amazing album “Mountain Song“. I have been chanting devotional songs with him since the 90’s in Tasmania at a Rainbow Gathering. CAMPINO from the German Punk Band “Die Toten Hosen“ came to one of my sound healing journeys facilitated in a star photographers studio in Hamburg. He invited me to play on one of their tracks called “Alles ist Eins” which I covered on my German Beat Poetry album “DER WEISSE WOLF”. I have been working with one of the members of Iconic German Band KRAFTWERK in his Studio for years.

I had the honour to collaborate with “Sweet Charles“ – Keyboarder and Bandleader of JAMES BROWN on the track “Phoenix Rising” of my album under the same name where I also collaborated with one of my favourite flute and saxophone players PRAFUL.

I am also a fan of good Cello so I was lucky to record HANS CHRISTIAN – producer of the devotional world Music project RASA who I met in Mexico performing with my friends MIRABAI CEIBA who I also love and admire, along with my legendary friend and amazing musician FANTUZZI as well as JAH LEVI and SHIMSHAI.

I am currently working with an outstanding Tabla Player from St. Petersburg called JAGANNATH (Denis Kucherov) www.jaggai.com, Irish/South African artist RONAN SKILLEN.com as well as astounding Siberian multi-instrumentalist www.nadishsna.com.

Occasionally weaving sacred world music with enchanting storyline of singer CarrieTree.co.uk and Kora player of the Senegalese Cissokho family – all masters of the african Harp which I love so much.

On my latest album “Golden Dragonrider”, I was lucky to be able to invite and collaborate with many great artists I admire including Carrie Tree and Nadishana as well as Praful and Darpan from Australia beside Sufi singers from South Africa and Brazilian master Kalimba player CHANDRA LACOMBE.

My favorite music is the sacred world music and sound alchemy I craft with love and dedication and artists I admire. There is too much more fantastic music I love and got inspired by to be listed here – so thats it for now.

Kailash Kokopelli

What has your greatest realisation or learning been on your journey as a healer?

My greatest realisation came through a Satori experience in South Africa where I realised beyond the minds’ comprehension and intellectual philosophical ideas that ALL IS GOD.

In this state of expanded awareness into the field of pure consciousness through a deep self-inquiry process, I laughed like a hundred and eight Dalai Lamas. I experienced for a blissful eternal moment total freedom in the realisation that ALL IS GOD.

The sense of separation and the illusion of an individual persona disconnected from the whole dissolved into complete Oneness. There was nothing to gain and nothing to loose because “I” was inseparable from the divine presence which resided within, above, below and all around everything and everyone. There was no private ownership and nothing to fight for or do. Only true being.

“I” had everything because “I” was everything.

There was not even “I” only the whole interwoven divine consciousness as the absolute reality. “I“ was THAT and THAT was “I”.

Somehow one slips back into the incarnated soul in body yet never can completely buy back into identification once this nectar of freedom has been tasted. From that illuminated dimension countless blessing flows through sound and silence into this world.

I have learned that the journey of a healer is an ever unfolding journey embracing all aspects of life. It is not a glorious path but a humbling journey where one has to stay alert and present all the time.

Purification and cleansing rituals are an important practice not just around treatments but on a regular basis.

Every healer will be tested and challenged at times.

Sometimes a healer must be a psychologist, a magician and an alchemist.

The path of the healer is not the path of a warrior even though sometimes a healer will have to transform and ward off not just sickness and entities but attacks of shamans and black magic with the sword of unpolarised light awareness. This battle can not be a battle of hate, anger, fear or aggression but rather a dance of transformation through forgiveness and understanding. A true healer is walking the path of the heart and is constantly expanding and aligning his awareness to the Great Spirit’s field of pure consciousness and source energy from where he or she must be guided.

What is the most powerful type of healing you have personally experienced?

Love is the most powerful type of healing. Forgiveness, compassion and kindness.

All other forms of healing are just different outlets and instruments of these essential human qualities.

I have also experienced miracle healing through the power of prayer.

When we come together in ceremony to pray for those in need, a field of many blessings and healing is woven through the unified power of intention. I also experienced Huichol Healers from Mexico and psychic surgeons from Brazil and the Philippines pulling out of the body materialisations of a disease in the form of a little stone, bone or bloody tissue.

Actually the most powerful healing I experienced was when I was offering a sound medicine treatment to a cancer patient who had been given up by Doctors of western medicine. I scanned her with the sound vibration of the didgeridoo and I located the cancer in her stomach. In this moment, I realised that it was an entity – a living organism who was feeding off the host – my client. I started a subtraction process and it was so powerful that the lights went on and off in the treatment room until the fuses blew completely. It was like an exorcism. The entity was holding on and my client was contracting until I could circle in the cancer and pull it out energetically. The cancer spirit was looking immediately for a new host – in this case it was me. I had to be very clear, firm and focused to direct the spirit of the disease straight into the light where it dissolved.

Do you have one tip to share for happiness and wellbeing in everyday life?

There is a saying that “There is no path to Happiness. Happiness is the path.”

Walking in balance and beauty is the path. Wellbeing… well, dear being…

Eat cacao. Lots of it. Raw organic. Its food of the Gods and food for your soul and heart.

The food we eat is psychoactive. If you feel sluggish and depressed do not eat sluggish food lacking life energy. Only the best purest organic living food, if not vegan raw at least vegetarian with some superfoods will make you feel good and energised.

Give your body temple the best offerings only – in this life you only have this one body. Take care of it. Stop polluting it.

FLY – First Love Yourself.

Exercise. Get your body moving – if not practicing daily KACHIMO Kailash Chi Movements or Yoga, at least walk. Walking is medicine.

Walk mindfully. Walking meditation or running – either way get your circulation happening.

Meditate. Tune in to come in tune with your true essence of being. Let your breath calm your mind and quieten your waves of emotional turbulences. Become the observer beyond identification with the conditioned persona ruled by desires, thoughts, fears, feelings, belongings and sex. Happiness is a choice. A state of being – free from conditions which would influence our happiness. True happiness is not influenced by material accumulations, properties and relationships. Not even physical conditions.

Happiness is a level of awareness available right now in this given moment. You have the choice!

Listen deeply to the song of your heart as the compass for guidance. All information of who you are in essence and what your true purpose is as well as all vital force and healing powers come from source within. Tap into that inner source through prayer, meditation, sound healing journeys, chant mantras, practice the yoga of song: sing, dance and be still. Let all actions lead to deep being. Know and awaken your true self. Infinite power is sleeping there. Remember who you are.

Stay humble. A true master always remains a true student in the light of the great mystery ever unfolding. Don’t be too sure about anything. Stay alert.

Be aware. Be patient yet alert – stay awake to catch and surf the waves of synchronicity.

One moment of unawareness and we can loose everything. If we are aware we can enter through countless portals of infinite possibilities at any given moment. There are miracles around every corner.

Trust. Trust in the divine intelligence but do not forget to use your own intelligence – divine intelligence can work through your intelligence when purifying the mind with good thoughts, prayers and mantras. Trust in the God(dess) but tie your camels. Have faith. Be a light for yourself even if you seem to tap in darkness. Pay it forward – be a light for others.

Give what you want to receive! Give unconditionally without the expectation of return, then your life will be a magnet for receiving manifold from sources known and unknown. Be the answer to your own prayers.

Become a living prayer.

Counting blessings over the abundance given simply by being alive with every breath and heart beat, develop a sense of gratitude. Gratitude is the key to abundance beyond monetary values.

Gratitude is a step towards happiness.

Free yourself – travel lightly. Let go of too much attachment.

Remember the Ancestors who walked the earth before us. It is a good reminder that soon we will be ancestors to our children and future generations. Lighting a candle to those who have passed and offering food, water and wings of prayer on which the souls can journey home to source is a small but meaningful gesture.

Taking a moment to stop and remember our beloved ones who have left their earthly bodies invokes a sense of gratitude for all that our ancestors have left for us. Not just the streets we walk on and many houses we live in but the technology, machinery, instruments and tools making our lives easier in so many ways. Knowledge of healing arts, medicines, songs, dances, music, food for body mind and spirit and all what enriches our lives down to the weaving of fabric have been passed on through generations.

The main teaching of the ancestors though is that we are just guests here for a limited time and that we must use our time consciously and hopefully will be able to remember and fulfill our purpose of being. What we have is only lend to us and will return to the earth with our body. We can not take anything but our experience with us when we leave this world behind for our journey through the spirit world. Ideally we will carry good memories and leave in peace so we can travel light.

May we use our time wisely – we do not know how much time is given to us. Hopefully within this given time of our life in this body we will make a contribution to the greater good of all.

If we can not offer our life in service hopefully we try to at least avoid causing suffering and pain to others so we are not bound by negative Karma which draws us back into the wheel of reincarnation in order to harvest the fruits of our actions – positive and negative.

My prayer for all of us is that we may awaken as brothers and sisters of one human earth family, recognising that we are all related with one another and all living beings. That we remember our precious blue pearl – sacred mother earth not just as our home planet but also an extension of our own body. May we take better care of this body – because what we do to this earth we do to ourselves and the future generations.

We have a responsibility to our ancestors from which we have inherited this earth and to the children of our children we must preserve the living waters and all sacred elements of life on and beyond this planet.

May we learn to take better care of one-another and share what is lent to us in abundance, balance and beauty.

What are your plans for the future, evolution of what you do?

My plan for the future is to learn from the past to be aware and present here and now.

I wish to decipher and serve the divine plan of global awakening and healing.

My aim is to create education & research centers for Sound Medicine, Organic Seed Preservation and Holistic Healing Arts.

We do not have to be seers or prophets to understand that we are in times of global major changes on the planet and moving very fast to an unavoidable cataclysmic situation where the survival of the human species and all our relations in the different kingdoms is threatened. We are a beautiful but dangerous and endangered species. We are at the verge of destroying ourselves and life on this planet.

I have had visions from early childhood of a total collapse of our manmade world and all we built. I studied medicinal and edible plants from age 10 in order to be of help for others to survive in times of crisis. Throughout my life I have been shown visions of a burnt earth and fire falling from the sky. Apparently this links with the Hopi prophecy that this time, the earth will be purified through fire. If it is a spiritual fire of global awakening or destruction is decided by our choices.

When I was 15 years old I hitch-hiked into the Italian mountains of Tuscany not far from Assisi.

An old Italian man was pouring red wine over my bare feet when I entered the mountain tavern to ask for directions to where I was staying that night. It was a blessing. That night I had a dream I will never forget. It was more of a vision filled with a light which would guide me through the rest of my life.

In my dream, I saw a luminous green meadow on which all the animals of the world stood in total stillness. Behind the animals was a huge ARK reminding me of Noah’s Ark or how it is imagined. To my left side stood a luminous woman with golden hair and water Lilly blue eyes who was in service of what was about to happen. I was in awe of the magnitude and beauty I witnessed. In the moment, I thought myself to be only a witness though something came running zigzag through the grazing animals towards me and when it was running around me in circles I saw that it was a coyote with the message that I was indeed an important part calling me to step into my place!

I understood that my purpose was to help preserve the different species to survive through a time of big transformation and chaos. I knew I had to go into the world to find allies to help with the transition shift and exodus. I knew I had to find my tribe and the land to build and prepare a metaphorical Ark, a Sanctuary. 

I found the land for my philanthropic humanitarian project in the South of Sweden where I have been the Director of an organic retreat centre and healing Sanctuary in a nature reserve with pure spring waters and golden silence on ancient ceremonial ground.

For 10 years I have facilitated ceremonies, initiations and festivals around the mystery school of “Dragonriders” and hosted hundreds of volunteers, work exchange travellers and international students at “Dragonland” http://dragoyogard.wix.com/dragoyogard  

I lost the Ark that I had crafted over a decade, along with the Sound Medicine Research Centre and organic seed preservation project linked due to lack of funding. It still is and always will be my predominant aim to establish and preserve sustainable Sanctuaries for the future generations, holistic healing and education centers and Temples of refuge worldwide as stepping stones through times of global changes.

Currently,  I am working on a plan to gather financial resources to preserve and build this and many other Sanctuaries around the globe for the children of our children. I am welcoming support in all possible forms may it be in the form of donations of land or resources, manpower or financial donations. 

Since my archetype and lineage is from the clan of the Kokopelli – the bard like flute-playing seed carriers, story-tellers and messengers between the tribes, my soul’s calling and aim is to build organic seed vaults globally additionally to supporting education and research centres for sound medicine.

Anything else you would like to mention or share ?

I am currently traveling with international students and offering teachings in practise and eduction around: Sound Medicine, Kachimo Kailash Chi Movements, Ceremony, Prayer works and Medicine Walks.

Kailash Kokopelli

About Kailash Kokopelli:

Like the mythological Kokopelli – the flute playing seed carrier and messenger between the tribes, Kailash Kokopelli is planting inspirational healing seeds through his flute song, devotional heart-songs & spirit chants into the heart and minds of those around him. He is also working with sustainable projects and organic seed saving. 

Kokopelli is internationally recognised as a cross-cultural bridge-maker, a medicine man and humanitarian artist working with indigenous people around the planet.

As a world music producer, multi-instrumentalist and expert in Sound Medicine he offers his instruments as prayer tools and keys to initiate self-healing processes. Doors of expanded perception are being unlocked through his mystic songs and medicine chants to commune with Source. The sound of his unique string instrument known as Tritar or Worldstick carries his Heartsongs, healing mantras and sung prayers into the world as an invitation to practice the Yoga of Song and sing along to co-create a unified energy field of grace where miracles can take place.

Inspired by his uncountable ceremonies and studies with Indigenous Medicine People since age 17, Kailash facilitates prayer works and masters the Native American Prayer Flute as well as the mother of all flutes as one of the first european Didgeridoo players who has been working with the healing effect of sound since 1989.

When did you discover an interest in healing?

Since a young age, I had a passion for the body’s anatomy and it’s movements . From the age of 14 I was teaching sport disciplines in the local gym and from this, my interest in posture and wellness grew. Shitzu was my next interest followed by my degree in physiotherapy to complete my journey with a six year course to specialise in Osteopathy , it was a natural progression.

I believe osteopathy came to me, I didn’t look for it.

What type of healing do you do?

I know various ways to achieve overall physical wellness, however after many different studies, osteopathy is what gave me the best results and satisfaction. I wouldn’t define it only as a healing therapy, everything is based on the deep knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the human body but also from your perception and feeling in tune with your patient.

What is your brief description of Osteopathy?

It’s a type of alternative medicine that heals the partial or total loss of muscle tissue and bones, cranial and visceral. It gives back movement, the cells are improved, the body achieves total harmony.

Osteopathy helps the three body’s components : self-healing auto-regulation and homeostasis

What do you want people to know about Osteopathy?

Very often, the general public confuse osteopathy with chiropractic referring to the thrust adjustments, however osteopathy is divided into three branches.

Structural osteopathy, describes the diagnosis and treatment of dysfunctions in the musculoskeletal system.

Visceral osteopathy relates to the visceral system, mobility and the ligaments.

Cranio sacral, a palpation of the cranium can be used to detect rhythmic movement of the cranial bones and selective pressures may be used to manipulate the cranial bones to achieve a therapeutic result. A good osteopath uses all three disciplines, choosing different techniques based on his perceptions.

Why do you do this particular sort of healing work?

I have chosen Osteopathy, because I help people to get better with my treatments, real treatments of anatomical basis. Also a good sense of perception is needed to get in tune with the patient to understand what the patient needs. This is a gift I have received , I am not sure who from and why , I only know that I get in tune with the body and my patients can perceive this energy and it’s effects.

Years of medical studies, physiotherapy, elastic therapy and anatomy, everything supported from a great passion and curiosity of human wellbeing. I think I have an innate gift in perceiving where the problem is and how to heal it, a mix of these factors has led to what I do today.

How did you develop your abilities and methods?

After years of medical, physiotherapist healing and anatomy studies. Also with a passion and curiosity of how the human being can achieve a state of wellness . I believe I have the gift of perception in finding where the problem is and how to solve it . A combination of those factors made me what I am today.

How do you prepare for your sessions?

Three words describe my session: Attention (meaning total concentration), Presence (I’m fully here mentally and physically) and Intention (I transfer with my energy information to the patient who receives it).

What does a visit to/working with an Osteopath healer involve?

An osteopath session involves meeting the patient first to discuss any physical problems, this is also a good opportunity to get to know the patient to help me to get in tune with him/her. Second step consists of palpating the patient ‘s body to diagnose any evident disease. The next step is the real treatment and manipulation to solve the cause of the physical disorder.

What transformations have you experienced through your Osteo journey?

What I have obtained through my journey after many years, is an extreme understanding of people, a perception of their traumas both physical and psychological, this helps me to obtain better results. Without those understandings, the manipulations would be only mechanical.

What transformations have you witnessed in people you have worked with?

Firstly the reduction and/or the elimination of pain, which is the main reason patients come to see me. After treatments, I also see a psychological improvement of general wellness in the patient; especially the reduction of stress levels.

One client always came with a skeleton diagram to demonstrate the pain she was experiencing still one year after being in a road traffic accident. After four treatments she improved dramatically and after a few more treatments she said that “everything finally felt back in the right place”.

What has your greatest realisation or learning been?

The greatest realisation has been that I am able to help people and make them feel better. What I have learned in time is the importance of being in tune with and feel the energy of my patients.

What is the most powerful type of healing you have experienced?

I could tell many anecdotes, but one sticks in my mind.

I remember a 92 years old lady who was living in Rome and from 2 years she was unable to walk. After many check ups and doctors consultations no one would take the responsibility to treat her because of her age. I don’t believe age is important and the lady had such a powerful energy that when I treated her, after 5 manipulations she started walking again like she was 60 years old not in her 90’s. To make this lady happy and independent when everyone else felt that she was too old to be treated was one of the greatest satisfactions I have experienced.

Do you have one tip to share for happiness and wellbeing in everyday life?

Life is motion from microscopic to macroscopic.

The Earth travels around the sun as the electrons travel around the nucleus of the cell, therefore all is movement.

I advise people to move as much as possible with their body and mind.

What is your favorite music/artists to listen to?

I love songs that talk about life diversity and different moods especially John Lennon and Elton John.

What are your plans for the future, evolution of what you do?

My goal for the future is to have three different offices in three different places in the world. Rome, London and one on a remote island .

This year I hope to expand by opening a second office in London.

When the student is ready the Shadow Teacher appears.

Because we have not faced the core illusion of separation, we suffer.

It hurts. There’s nothing like a big dose of agony to get our attention.

Fear rattles the cage screaming “FREE ME PLEASE!”

Due to our endless devotion to fear as a way to evolve we invoke shadow healers into our lives. People who enter our field who are committed to deception disguised as truth. They make great truth-lie-truth sandwiches.  They come in many designs from the most charming to the despicable but they away come in as a direct match to your favorite flavor of fear. So illuminating they are, revealing the price of all that you crave and all that you despise.

Shadow teachers are unaware of the real lessons they bring. If they understood their role in your life they would be conscious. Consciousness doesn’t cast a shadow. Conscious teachers are masters of Compassion & Wisdom. To expose the lies within you, like great magicians, they can use illusion to reveal the truth. Out of love, in the end, all tricks are revealed, full transparency, nothing to hide. The illusion lasts just long enough to show you that you bought into it in the first place. They attract others in a responsible way. It’s not glamorous but it’s real.

Shadow teachers on the other hand, get lost in the magic trick itself. They are restless and often repel others after the initial attraction has worn off. They end up alone burning through friends, partners, students, even family falls away. The have to keep on the run, shape-shifters, retreat junkies, entrepreneurial gypsies. What they serve up and what’s on the menu are two different things. Not in a paradoxical way but in a way that says, “HEY SOMETHING’S NOT ADDING UP HERE?”

The great lesson of the shadow teacher is contrast, that Ah-Ha moment where you finally see what they have been trying to show you all along; your pride, your fear of being alone, poor, unworthy, etc.

When you have identified a shadow healer in your life it’s best to honor them and yourself with confession, forgiveness and open appreciation. To call a shadow person out is a death threat. Truth is crippling to what they thought they were and what they thought they had to offer. Can they follow you out into the light of day?  Sure. Will they? Not many. They love the drama. It hides the trauma within. So they focus on how screwed up you are so they don’t have to look in the mirror. Thank them for being so illuminating of your shadows, such great examples of what NOT to be, excellent imposters, faux-teachers that teach you what’s real.

In this way, the habit of fear-based living can break and LOVE can shine through the cracks they seem to have made in you. Turn 180 degrees and walk in the opposite direction out of the mind games and into heart of Love. They will tell you, if you were really (filling in whatever word describes what you want to be the most) you would stay and play their game.  We need them until we don’t. We have all been one to someone at sometime. Walk into the sun. The courageous ones will follow.

Dear Shadow Teacher,

Thank you for showing up for me when I was not ready for a better way. At least I had you.

Thank you for giving me the chance again and again to see how I bow at the feet of fear.

Thank you for ripping from me all that I assumed I was, stripping me naked and leaving me alone on the side of the road, in the cold, in the spooky part of town.

Thank you for taking me on a tour of scar-city, forcing me to choose between the things, people and experiences I love.

Shadow Teacher, thank you for the exorcism of that haunting whisper, “You my dear, are not enough.”

Thank you for showing me what I am not willing to tolerate any more.

I grieve all the times I couldn’t see what I see in myself now. I grieve that you wont share in this seeing in yourself with me.

Everything you trigger in me is an opportunity to see the path away from you. Know that I walk away out of love.

Amara Samata

Amara Samata

When did you discover an interest in healing?

My Journey began when I was very young.

Seeing the conflict in my world, within my own family and in my school; I was born with a deep desire to question everything. What is going on here? What is God? What is Love? What is True? What is really REAL? How would I know? I had to know.

I had times in my life when I fell into great suffering and sadness as a girl, a daughter, a young woman, an actress, a wife and as a mother devoted to her son. I became interested in healing as a way to overcome the pain of self-sabotage, marital divorce and to make peace with this world and my experience in it.

What transformations have you experienced through your healing journey?

It’s important to understand that healing and transformation is not a destination. It is an on-going ever-present expression of unfolding self and mastering the Self and the No Self. Through the consistent willingness to witness my self and the life I’ve manifested, healing has happened. By healing I mean a capacity to be and express ones self as whole, less fragmented or limited in perception and experience. For instance, as a teen I was badly bulimic for 9 years. It was by finally facing that empty seemingly bottom-less pit of fear within, that I discovered that emptiness is where the magic happens. The empty void is your friend. I also transformed my chronic back pain of 7 years into a pain free spine. I’ve healed low-self esteem and I’ve given birth to the conscious nature that was always there hiding behind the veils of my small me-ness.  In the process I’ve learned to manifest with great skill, I’ve experienced un-earthly bliss and best of all I’ve stepped into my calling without fear or attachment. The calling of the Revealer.

What type of healing do you do?

Well “I” don’t, “do” healing. Healing is a natural by-product of Conscious Awareness.

Calling on all that has helped me evolve, I offer up what worked for me. After 12 years practicing and studying self-empowerment, spirituality, yoga and meditation I ended up mentoring with a Filipino Mystic and Healer and at the same time studying daily with a Tibetan trained Lama.  Together I was transformed through these distinctly masculine and feminine approaches to awakening. The combined result is what I offer to others in the form of hands-on energetic work, guided visualisations, meditation, inner inquiry, clairvoyant readings, sat sang and  intuitive strategic consultations, shaktipad and more.

Amara Samata

How did you develop your abilities and methods?

Whatever worked on me in the thrashings of my dark nights and in the illuminations of the light is what I use.

I have embody more and more what is called “The Skilful Means” to intuitively know what someone needs in order to heal. If it works on a few you can be sure it will work on thousands more. We are more alike then we realise. Out of all that I have found it’s the combination of Conscious Inquiry (asking the right questions at the right moment) and listening with a willingness to live the answer with the totality of one’s being that brings the quickest results.

What do you want people to know about Inner Guidance?

I offer in-depth and personal guidance as well as on-going support to those who come to see me which has resulted in over 1500 people now experiencing themselves in a new and more holistic way. This work with individuals, couples, families, groups, immersions and trainings is what has become the Inner Guidance Institute, an on-line seedling center for self-illuminating offerings.

Amara Samata

What transformations have you witnessed in clients/people you have worked with?

I’ve got the best job in the world! I’m privileged and honoured to be able to see into the depth of others’ systems and offer them the invitation of liberation. I’ve witnessed more than once, rape victims taking back their power and bowing to that experience, letting it go FOR GOOD. I’ve seen families heal old karmic wounds and give each other permission to love and accept one another in new healthy ways again. I’ve seen a woman stand up out of her wheelchair 7 days later and now she drives herself to the gym. I’ve seen a Guru confess their sins of jealousy and misuse of power and return to their students in a more humble and transparent way. I’ve seen a mother commune with her teenage daughter who died and seeing the reasons why she was able to move on with joy. I’ve seen a Muslim father give his ½ Muslim daughter permission to remove her headdress. I’ve seen her shower him with love.

How do you prepare for your sessions and workshops?

I set the intention to have no agenda other than to have no agenda. I disappear into the source of all that is. I listen, pay attention and take note of what inspires and serves others the most.

What do your mentoring and training experiences involve?

They involve you showing up 100% for yourself as we get into a deep line of inner inquiry that reveals the motives behind your actions. In a field of unconditional love, I’m here 1000% for you! Let’s connect.

 What has your greatest realisation or learning been?

The ongoing mastery of the living paradox of everything, nothing and the path that leads right back to NOW. Fear is only Love waiting to be embraced consciously.

Do you have one tip to share for happiness and wellbeing in everyday life?

Yes, every time you catch yourself acting out of lack of trust, fear, obligation or unconscious sacrifice STOP. Give yourself a little love pat and say, “Oh, I’m doing it again. It’s ok, I don’t need to do that. I’m good.”  Take a deep breath in, exhale and respond anew.

What is your favourite music/artists to listen to?

The realms beyond this dimension. There is no music on earth like it. But some come kinda close. I love music created in highest intention. Nature is probably my favorite artist. I do like the power of the human voice.

What are your plans for the future, evolution of what you do?

I have a few opportunities, one is to open a healing center in BALI. It’s going to change the way we think about healing and humanity and it might also just be a nice place to have tea. That seems to be the plan working through me. I’ll be hosting more training programs in other countries and I’m finishing a book.

Angelo Marcos Santos : We Are Not Our Pain

ANGELO MARCOS SANTOS

I went running today…

I planned to do my usual laps around the park, then I decided to do my push ups BEFORE running.

I got to the park’s outdoor gym and decided to go straight into Sirsasana pose, which is the head stand. Half way through the 3 minutes I usually do it for, I felt a sharp pain on my back, to the left, next to my spine, behind my heart. It felt like my lungs were pierced by my rib.

I had experienced this pain before and being committed to the practice, instead of coming off the Sirsasana, as I was seriously weakened in that moment, I decided to override the pain (NOT something I would EVER recommend to students however) and connect with my energy body, instead of focusing on the pain in the body.

We are not the pain in our bodies.

1.5 minutes later (and they always have to be slow seconds because commitment is there) I knew there was problem. I couldn’t breathe properly, couldn’t expand my lungs. I was fine though psychologically as I had encountered this experience before in life, so I knew it would pass at some point. Certainly no more running that day or for the next few days.

Annoying as it was, I had to accept it. I didn’t want to let go of the push ups, so after much slow breathing energy and Qi / Healing energy moving, I was just about ok to go down on my knees slowly and do my 100 push ups. Going down was painful but once I was horizontal and in the push ups, it was fine.

Afterward, I went straight home. And was received by Ama Lia Wai-Ching Lee, who saw the state I was in, as I couldnt breath properly or speak very well when I entered the home.

So, this is the point of this sharing…it was HEALING TIME.

She got into her Healer mode straight away and sent me into meditation. We were going to access the source of the physical pain, which is found in our Consciousness.

All physical pain has a source, not the physical world, but the spiritual world. Something usually related to past lives. Some kind of trauma in past lives has been stored in the holographic memory which composes our multidimensional matrix and this is what true healing is. We access the memory of the source or origin of the pain, we come to see it for what it is, we get empowered and the issue is gone.

This is ever lasting healing so I knew I was in safe hands of course. She is by far a healer that creates a field of transformation unlike any other healer, shaman or mystic I have ever met. Aside from Great Rinpoches or other more “out there” teachers.

So I am sharing my story of a healing session which just happenend. A very weak pain is still around, but the disabilitating grave pain I was in is now gone through 20 mins or so of healing. Just astounding how Ama is able to tap into source, to the field of infinite potential, and allow you to come to your own healing, identifying what it is the cause and why the effect has been such.

In this last healing session just now, I got a great gift, a big surprise and that is how magic goes. We are brought to a space where we feel reality, we see more clearly, the nature of life as infinite potential.

I have done 3 sessions with her, and been at close proximity with her for over 2 years now, so I understand her impact in the lives of others, and still it is astounding to observe the healing work that happens when she does it on me.

These deep deep traumas incurred in our past lives are blocks which we were born with in our multidimensional matrix of the self. So this is something that our personality is not aware of.

In each session I have done with her, what arises is either physical pain or some kind of behavioural limitation in life, ie creating abundance or having harmonious relations with others, and then it is seen for what it is. Visually, we jump from life to life, seeing karma playing out as it is, repeated patterns of behaviour happening from life to life, affecting us in ways which eventually prevent us from having our desires fulfilled. Of course, this is also a huge blessing, as we get to understand life and the way of the cosmos. Ama Lia makes sure that the healing done is “seen”, so it truly goes away when the pain or limitation is acknowledged mentally, emotionally and spiritually as a lesson, and therefore something to aid us on our path.

Once healed, our lives are truly transformed. Like going from being a slow car to a Ferrari. That’s how it feels, something that has been deeply traumatic in our souls history, is healed. To me, this is priceless and no money can ever pay for this kind of transformation.

Angelo Marcos Santos is a consciousness researcher, who investigates the limitlessness of the human potential through Arts, Science and Spirituality. He is a Yoga & Meditation teacher, Mandala Artist, Dancer and Boardsports Enthusiast. More recently a poet, inspired by anything and everything to do with loving the Beloved.

When did you discover an interest in yoga? 

YOSS: I started my path of inner growth with martial arts in 1989, then two years later, I discovered yoga. I carried on both disciplines for more than 25 years. From martial arts, I found confidence in myself or self-esteem. From Yoga, I received awareness and inner peace. Through the practice of both disciplines for many years, I have reached the conviction that happiness and the realisation of happiness only depends on our attitude and our self  awareness in everyday life.

Yossmartialarts

BEATRICE:  At the age of three I was already doing gymnastics, and I had always felt that movement is something precious. When I was sixteen years old, I went to India for the first time and there I discovered yoga as a way to unite the world of the body and the philosophy of the heart.

beayoga

What made you decide to become a yoga teacher?

YOSS: Teaching is sharing. I didn’t decide but it was something that I deeply felt in my heart: the opportunity to share the great joy and beauty of yoga with other people and grow together with them.

BEATRICE: I really do not feel myself to be like a teacher, but instead like a worker who, as a little ant does, wants to build a better world.

Would you say that yoga is a method for healing and is that why you teach “Yoga & Medicine”?

YOSS: Yoga is actually much more. Yoga is an ancient science of physical, mental and spiritual growth. Regarding our mind / body system, yoga provides great techniques for better health. However, a good teacher must know perfectly these techniques and in particular how yoga techniques work on the body of the practitioner, especially if he were to have physical problems. In our Yoga & Medicine Teacher Training we study both yoga techniques and the anatomy and physiology applied to Yoga techniques.

BEATRICE: I obtained a degree in medicine and I have done yoga for many years, so I am just following my personal passion for life ; that is sharing what I feel good for myself with others by studying in depth the movement and reaction of the body, and the floating of the mind.

What are the benefits of yoga?

YOSS: How long do I have to answer this? Countless ways. If we pause to reflect on our very existence, we can safely say we are designed to live in health, serenity, joyfully aware and in constant transformation. Yoga helps us achieve this.

BEATRICE: The benefits of yoga are both physical and mental. I believe that by being aware of your movement and your breathing, you can learn to understand more about your inside world. Which is full of light and shadow at the same time. This awareness can help you to be able to surf the waves of life better.

Why specifically do you do this work?

YOSS: What work? For me it is a great opportunity to be able to live by practicing what I love and to share it with those who want to follow me.

BEATRICE: Firstly, I live life as a unity with nature and animals, which corresponds to our inner instinct. By teaching yoga I would like to communicate this union to others.

How did you develop your abilities and methods?

YOSS: With a deep attention to everything I hear around me, both in the world of yoga and in everyday life. Of course I studied a lot with Italian and international masters. But in recent years my greatest growth occurs through reflection and meditation.

BEATRICE: Through practicing, studying and learning just how little we are, I have evolved. By knowing nothing, but capable of breathing and feeling our breath we can find a new way to face ourselves and the world.

How do you prepare for teaching your courses?

YOSS: I do not really prepare myself that much. Of course I have a rough idea of what I want to do in a classroom or in a seminar, but then I follow what I feel in the class and the responses of my students. Often, at the end of the lessons I receive thanks. I always reply by pointing out that I have not done the class alone but together with them and thanks to their energy too.

BEATRICE: I prepare for teaching by practicing yoga every day. Doing research and trying to live in the present as much as I can.

What is it like to teach together with another and how do you make that work?

YOSS: It is a great experience, support and mutual enrichment. It means to be open and fluid.

BEATRICE:  It is a wonderful experience to teach yoga together with another teacher, but it is not always easy to find someone who is on the real wave of sharing.

What transformations have you experienced through doing this work?

YOSS: I love teaching together, it help me lose my reference points, my certainties, giving me fluidity, lightness, flowing together with my partner. In life our greatest certainties can become our biggest influences.

BEATRICE: I have experienced that life is not yesterday nor tomorrow, but it is now.

What transformations have you witnessed in others?

YOSS: Students like to receive a lesson from more than one teacher simultaneously.

BEATRICE: Through yoga I have seen others achieve physical wellness, improvement of flexibility and better alignment of the body. I have also witnessed more ability of people to let themselves dance in the river of life.

What has your greatest realisation or learning been?

YOSS: Lots! Lately, I have felt deeply that I will no longer waste time and energy to change what cannot change, but I do not want to lose a little chance to learn about and change what I can change: myself.

BEATRICE: I have learned that life is a circle with death and that they are not distinguishable. This is the same for all of the opposite forces inside of us.

What is the most powerful type of healing you have personally experienced?

YOSS: Yoga

BEATRICE: Yoga practice has been the most powerful for me.

What is your favourite music/artists to listen to? 

YOSS: Eddie Vedder, and all the artists who express themselves and deep feelings with music.

BEATRICE:  “Spirit Bird” by Xavier Rudd is a song that means so much in my life path, and also”What if God was one of us ?” by Joan Osborne.

Do you have one tip to share for happiness and wellbeing in everyday life?

YOSS: Stop. Breathe. Open your eyes and see if anything has changed in the way of seeing the same old things. It works!

I think we labor to find pleasure, always trying to do new things, we should actually try to find pleasure in doing ever anew the usual things.

BEATRICE: My tip for happiness is to live in the present.

What are your plans for the future evolution of what you do?

YOSS: I’d like to communicate more and more my message and open more than the two yoga studios I already have. The challenge will be to best manage my centres, without losing time for personal practice and teaching. 

Together with Beatrice, we will continue to hold Teacher Training for “Yoga and Medicine”,  where the teaching of yoga is enriched by the medical scientific component, to ensure future teachers a broad and thorough preparation.

BEATRICE: I do not like to plan, I prefer to grasp the moment in life.

A galactic tidal wave of divine light is descending upon earth, raising the frequency. The old reality is ending. We will experience a dynamic re-calibration of electromagnetic fields into Earth on a global scale. Which will trigger a radical shift in consciousness.

As we reach the second half of the year, we will experience more energetic shifts, frequency expansion symptoms; the healing, balancing and aligning of the mind, body, and soul.

The cosmic christ energy entering the planet now is increasing the frequency of our kundalini energy. And our auric field is expanding and becoming brighter. The aura is holding more of the high frequency cosmic energies it receives from the higher dimensions in space. As the aura expands, the person expands their consciousness. Our aura must go through these expansions in order to merge with new Earth. The frequency changes is filtering out any lower vibrational frequency from our body. 

As you feel these ascension symptoms; Emotional changes-feeling irritable, overwhelming mood swings. Mental changes-feeling disorientated, lack of concentration. Physical reactions-high pitch sound vibrating in the ears, intense pressure around the head, fatigue, exhaustion. This is a clear sign that you are spiraling upwards with Earth and integrating the higher frequency codes, thus creating an interconnected and unified crystalline body that will carry more cosmic christ energy.

Our body is being reformed, redefined. When we go through this process, our DNA also goes through this process. The DNA is being given the programming to prepare for a brand new reality to be born within it so that it can begin to experience and visualize the new Earth beyond the lower dimensional confines of 3D Earth. The activation of neural path ways will trigger new perceptions, new information, new impulses and the re-calibration of our DNA, thus activating our highest DNA potential.

As the Earth spirals up through the star gate 4D portal faster and faster, we are taken into higher and higher consciousness within the new Harmonic Universe. We will perceive worlds of unimaginable beauty as the veils are lifted. Multidimensional reality that interconnects all things will be as clear as sun light. The old reality will be swept away by the revelation of what we are, released, transformed into a multidimensional being, conscious, whole and free.

New Earth will emerge without fear, without war, without greed, in a safe custodianship of the awakened human species, manifesting peace with love, light and celebration.

Open yourselves to these high dimensional frequencies, open your heart, trust with love. Now is the time of great shifting of the Ascension Cycle!

Within Love-Unity,

What type of healing do you do?

I have named my approach “Guided Self-Recalibration”. It is essentially an active and conversational meditation process whereby an issue or symptom is explored until disruptive patterns are identified and their root causes are recognized and dispelled. I provide supportive reflection and guidance so that the inherent healing process within an individual can recover and optimize. The process is subtle and organic, addressing the spirit while always respecting privacy and boundaries. I listen, witness, support, reflect and guide, holding space and gently encouraging the individual to take an active part in their healing. The goal is to ‘free’ and to strengthen or bolster those in need so that they may proceed in their lives in accordance with their soul’s fullest potential.

When did you discover an interest in healing?

Even before having the vernacular to express such an interest succinctly, I have had an inherent inclination to support and aid others since early childhood. I always felt that we were all born with gifts to assist ourselves and others in unique ways, and in developing and sharing those gifts we all contribute in a meaningful and valuable way to the beauty and harmony of the world and beyond.

Did you study with someone? 

Since my quest has been to come to understand the connections and interrelationships between emotional, psychological and physical well-being, I did not study with one particular teacher, instead I have taken a hands on approach, exploring various spiritual philosophies (including Mayan, Toltec, and Native American inspired reflective guiding symbolism), crystals, nutrition, herbology, acupuncture, and homeopathy, as well as researching psychological, medical and scientific observations.

How did you develop your abilities and methods as a healer?

It’s an ongoing process of listening closely, questioning and exploring ceaselessly, analyzing and reflecting, and practicing that which I’ve learned. It’s an integrative process that has spanned over twenty five years so far.

Why specifically do you do this work?

I feel that it is a great gift to be able to help others by offering the insights that I have learned. It is an honour to be able to participate in the overall betterment and well-being of the world by addressing the needs of one person at a time.

What transformations have you experienced through doing this work?

The nature of the work is consistently and constantly transformative as I was, and am, my very first ‘client’ and I continue to work every day in one form or another. I have witnessed and experienced a slow and steady increase in ability to live from my core (or centre being) in a calmer and more proactive way – even when ‘doing nothing’ – and perhaps, most importantly (as someone living with Lupus for 30 years) I am able to manage any symptoms on a daily basis without the need for medication.

What transformations have you witnessed in others?

I feel that I’d like to reply as a mom. I cannot describe the transformations (as they are the property of the soul and not for me to quantify or judge). However, if ever anyone has borne witness or participated in seeing a pained child or creature become soothed, and reach a place of calm and contentment where once pain was prominent, that is the ‘transformation’ I’ve been privileged to take part in. The micro muscles soften, the eyes shine, the spirit is calm.

What has your greatest realisation or learning been on your journey as a healer?

That everything matters. The ‘sacred’ is ‘mundane’ and the ‘mundane’ is ‘sacred’.

Can you please share some of the most powerful healing you have experienced?

‘Healing’ is not always turning sickness to wellness, but is like inhaling or exhaling—in other words, it’s found in the constant expression of the soul. ‘Powerful’ is relative to the moment and so each tender moment of mutual connection and understanding is ‘most powerful’. That said, one of the most poignant experiences was the making of a short film I wrote, directed and produced in 2008 (“Inner Mask”). Not only were my personal artistic goals being met, but everyone who participated—from Extras to craftspeople, my son and good friends—every single person went through a positive change in the name of ‘love’. The synergy, unspoken commitment, enthusiasm, support, courage and ‘miracles’ (i.e. coincidence and serendipity) abounded for the five weeks it took to create the film from concept to completion. Directly or indirectly every single participant had a positive life-altering experience during or shortly after the film. The film itself did not receive much attention from the film world; however it seemed to me (and to all concerned) that the process of creating the film was in and of itself a gateway to healing.

As a healer, writer and filmmaker; is there a link between these aspects of your work and life?

I feel that everything is connected to wellness. I don’t call myself a “healer” (since I merely facilitate and don’t ‘directly’ heal anyone). I also don’t define myself by the words ‘artist’ or ‘writer’, but I feel that my soul’s inherent expression comes through in work that focusses on communication and understanding, so art is a natural extension of my being. Everything is connected and related. It all depends on one’s inclination and perspective. It’s my intention to share every form of artistic expression that provides joy or perhaps even inspiration of any kind.

What are your favourite films on the themes of healing and empowerment?

I believe that all art carries the capacity to express these themes and I have enjoyed many films that have carried an inspiring message in one form or another (in film, music, books, paintings, poetry, etc.). In this specific genre, I would choose “Whale Rider”, “The Power of One”, “To Kill A Mockingbird”, “Dead Poets Society”, and  “Peaceful Warrior” to name a few.

Do you have one tip to share for everyday life?

Find the love within yourself and honour it at all times with gentle focus and awareness.

Anything else?

Find joy every day in at least one meaningful way (whether in awe of a sunset, the sound of a friend’s voice or the scent of a flower). Nurture your soul.

What does a one to one session with you involve?

It involves a preliminary contact to establish the needs of a ‘seeker’ (where I also describe what my process involves in greater detail and we explore whether or not I am the right person to aid the one in need). If the connection is ‘sympathetic’, we proceed. They speak, I listen. There are always tissues, water and/or tea available if necessary and all the comforts of a clean, happy, safe and artistic environment that I can offer. We delve. We explore. The quest for positive change is addressed as fully as possible. A session may be up to three hours (and I always book the time accordingly whether it is required or not). I may use a pendulum to ‘check in’ with a participant and to ensure that we’re on the right track or to make sure we have covered all aspects that we can for the moment or day. At the end of the session, we generally (but not always) do a ‘clearing’—affirming the dissolution or dispelling of negative influences adopted for the sake of survival which no longer serve the same purpose, but which impede ‘expansion’ or ‘expression’. No one leaves in a state of upheaval or distress. In terms of booking sessions, I have relied upon ‘Cosmic timing’ to ensure that I’m ready to aid someone when help is needed, and it has worked impeccably thus far for several years.

How do you prepare for a healing session?

In a sense, I never stop ‘preparing’. I too am always learning, always considering questions and options. In a sense, I prepare specifically by ensuring that my space is clear and clean, and that I am detached, ready to listen and ready to address that which I have been invited to witness.

What are you future plans, ideas projects as a healer and as an artist?

I have just recently self-published my first feature film script “Halocline” (which I have released as an e-book unto itself, as one might a play).  I’m in the process of editing and illustrating a children’s book I have written called “The Story of Henry, Wolf’s Bane” which is about a little pig defeating a wolf, much akin to my ‘battle’ with Lupus (which is “wolf” in Latin), and I have been asked to teach artists in the context of a series of workshops offering a holistic approach to business. I prefer to follow the heart’s journey rather than to make plans. There are always new and exciting ways in which to participate and to share in this amazing journey together.
