Welcome to my website. I am a shamanic practitioner and drum-maker currently living in the Black forest in Germany.
Born Anglo-Polish, March 1977 in London, I moved to Spain at the age of 5. I grew up in the mountains to the North of Madrid, but moved back to England to complete a Masters degree at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) where I read Medical Anthropology.
I use music in healing work as I searches for a chord, a single note, or a tune to offer to people- we are all made of vibrating energy which emits sound, and sound healing is a deeply moving experience. I have spent many years involved in healing work, and was shamanically initiated in Ecuador with the Kitchwa people of the rainforest. I trained as a Reiki healer at the turn of the century, and completed a 2 year professional training in shamanic practice in the UK. I am also a qualified herbalist (BSY diploma) and hold a diploma in Anatomy and Physiology.
I started working with the Spirit of the drum many years ago and prepare my own skins from scratch. I have also written the book I would have liked to have when I started working with drums which is due to be published as an ebook by December 2017.
