I am an imperfect person. I make mistakes. Sometimes I say or do the unskillful thing. I have bad days and melt downs. I can struggle with my practice. I get too busy. I avoid self-care. But when I’m in my darkest moments, it is sacred sound that becomes my light. The yogic tools of Sound Wisdom can always help me tune back into myself, and call me back home to my soul.
I am not here to be your ‘guru’, your healer, or your therapist. I am here to show you how to BE all those things, and more, FOR YOURSELF. Through the tools of Sound Wisdom, you are your own guru, healer, and therapist, and I can help you learn how to access your own power.I know what you’re probably thinking right now. “Of all the teachers out there, why should I trust this ‘imperfect’ person to help me?” The truth is, I’m someone who has BEEN THERE. Like truly been there. Down in the depths of the darkest darknesses. I know what it’s like to be so depressed you can’t get out of your bed, or brush your teeth. I know what it’s like to be so high on life, you seek out dangerous, but oh so exciting pleasures and addictions. I know what it’s like to be too anxious and terrified to speak, to move, to leave the house, to answer the phone. I know what it’s like to be so angry you have to scream – the rage is that big. I know what it’s like to hate yourself. No, to loathe yourself. I know what it’s like to want to end it all. I know what it’s like to feel shame – not just guilt – shame. I know what it’s like to grieve – a loved one – a part of yourself – your unmet dreams – the life you never had. I know what it’s like. I know.
I am someone who has faced (and who continues to face) my own demons and dragons, and who is committed to travelling the path of self-growth, learning and transformation. By coming through my own dark nights, and continuing to keep coming through them again and again, I can relate to your experiences in ways that others just can’t. Some people truly DO FEEL MORE THAN OTHERS – and I am one of those people.
The benefit of me having experienced such extreme emotions, is that when it comes to your darkness – I can sit with you there. That’s one of my biggest gifts. Your darkness doesn’t scare me – cause I’ve been there – and I won’t judge you for it. I get it. I understand it’s not about you being a bad person. I understand it’s not about you being selfish, or narcissistic, or toxic. I KNOW it’s about you being IN PAIN. That’s all. And people in pain are worthy and deserving of empathy. People in pain need better methods of pain relief! Physical – Emotional – Mental – and Spiritual pain relief!
And that’s where SOUND WISDOM comes in. We are not meant to stay STUCK in the pain. But the wisdom tools to get UNSTUCK have been hidden from us for too long. In fact, even today, most people are still learning these practices of sound, movement, and meditation separately, which in my opinion, only gives you half (or a third!) of your personal power back. I’ve had to travel around the globe in order to find these practices to combine them in full – to learn not only the physical and intellectual practices of yoga, but also its heart, its true wisdom: SOUND.
So my offering weaves many wisdom tools together. Yoga was never just about the poses - in fact, the poses were only developed later on to help prepare the body/mind for meditative sound-based Wisdom practices! So that’s why I’ve created Sound Wisdom. We need the practices of BOTH SOUND and MOVEMENT together as meditation, as yoga. It’s when they are practiced together that you get the kind of transformation, growth, and healing that you are seeking!
And I have a wealth of amazing tools to share with you.
Come tune in to the sound of your calling – tune in to your own inner wisdom.
