Water has always been a consistent safe haven and place of reverence and healing, a source of freedom and joy for her. Having learned to swim before she could walk, moving in water is a natural experience that she loves to share with others through group aquatic explorations, aguahara sessions, sailing, and swimming confidence lessons. She brings a powerful mothering, healing presence to all of her work through experiences as a mother, teacher, and trauma navigator.

Singing Medicine & Sacred Space Holder
“Open your heart, Let your voice come through, Just the way you do it, Nothing to compare to.” Copperwoman has been gifted in this lifetime to “catch” songs for us—for people who want to sing together to raise the collective vibration in a prayerful way, and for those who might be afraid to sing. She offers a safe space in which to find your voice and express that which lives within and wants to come out vocally. Her most passion-filled moments are when she finds herself surrounded by a group of people singing with her. Having visited Peru seven times, Copperwoman carries an energy of pachamama and a certain depth of ancient connected earth culture. You can hear Copperwoman’s music on Spotify and other streaming platforms.
Sam David
Shamanic Sound Healer
Sam is not your typical sound healing musician, as he is more of a "sound shaman" with an unparalleled mastery of a large range of sounds with his voice and sacred instruments including the Didgeridoo, Native drums, Crystal and Tibetan bowls, and other unique instruments like the Crystal pyramids. Sam was born in Hawaii and has traveled the world sharing the activating and healing power of sound for over 25 years. His vocals and sounds are channeled based on the energy he senses intuitively from the people and the space around him, with an intention for healing. He integrates powerful healing techniques from many different cultures including Tuvin throat singing, Tibetan monks, Native American sounds, Celtic Hymns, Vocal overtones and much more including the sounds of Whales of the deep.
