The didjeridoo has been a part of my life for many years playing for myself, for others in single and group healing sessions and in performance. I have played professionally with bands like: Kan’Nal, Lunar Fire, Beth Quist, Tierro and others for the past 15 years. I also offer vibrational healing sessions, and play on a regular basis for yoga […]

I’m sure there are more great resources out […]
