Music is a friend. A friend who you can talk to. A friend who understands you and does not judge you. A friend who you can share your deepest sadness and happiness. When I first started to play an instrument it taught me those things. It became medicine. Through out my journey in the indigenous medicine traditions in Peru and the Americas, I experienced the effects of the healing power of music and sound.

In that journey I found music instruments from different cultures (ancient and contemporary). The Native American Flute (NAF) was a flute that touched my soul and lift my spirit in a particular way. Its connection and way to communicate to the human soul, the spirit realm and the earth is magical. It taught me to stop overthinking and be in the present moment. Its simple and humble way taught me how to be like that. This flute could change your life and start a profound friendship in your self discovery journey.

This is a class within the music medicine approach.

Music medicine is a way to learn from shamanic, spiritual and esoteric perspectives and discover those teachings and put them in practice in your life while playing. This is not a “traditional” flute music class or lesson. You don’t need to read music notes or be tested. The intention of these classes is about finding your own way to play with music and sound as a healing path of self-discovery. Native instruments from the Americas and around the world were developed to establish an inner-communication with the Divine. A way of praying-playing and to remember our connection to the sacred material and spiritual world.

You do not need to be a musician to benefit from taking this class. Its teachings may be applied to everyone. All ages are welcome. If you do not have a Native American flute, there are many options of NA flutes online.
