My approach to music medicine is primarily grounded in Peruvian curanderismo. My intention is to heal, strengthen and harmonize the energy body (body-mind-spirit) through music and sound. This allows us to access the unconscious and supra conscious, non physical realities, the essence of the shamanic journey.
Music and medicine have a strongly-intertwined partnership. The human body is primary made of energy and frequency. Frequency, sound plays an important role in our health because our bodies depend on frequency to operate. When our bodies become sick, it is a disruption in the frequency patterns of our energy body. This energy body includes mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual elements. When this body becomes imbalanced or blocked, disease can arise.
In the andean cosmology there are 3 levels of awareness. The first one, called Hanan Pacha is represented by the condor. This is the world of birds, stars, the sky, the sun, the outer world and the supra conscious. It is here we have access to a higher perspective of reality. The second one, called Kay Pacha is represented by the puma. This is our ordinary life state, our 3D reality and the conscious. And the third one, called Uku Pacha, is represented by the snake. This is the world of reptiles, the inner world, the shadow, the darkness and the unconscious. During this state of awareness, through ancient andean sounds, we can access higher and deeper levels of being. Here we can access old memories, release traumas and clean blockages in the energy body. Through this we can experience deep insights and realisations. Bridging these 3 worlds of awareness brings us an important tool to navigate the mystery of life and to find an expanded vision of reality. This bridge became the essence of the Andean and Amazonian way of living, the chakaruna (bridge people).
