Testimonials

I first met Shine at Hollyhock back in 2008 and knew from our first encounter that he was a deeply integral and inspiring human being.  I was undergoing a major spiritual and life initiation at the time, and his resonance was a clear beacon of where I was heading, although I may not have known it at the time.  Near the end of my week on Cortes I booked a healing session and showed up with great intrigue and excitement.  Shine as always was so heartfelt and humble, and offered such clear loving reflections of what I needed at that time.  Once the session began it catapulted me into deep understandings of the power of sound healing as it viscerally awoken the potential in my own cells.  I felt his connection with the ancestors coursing through me and found myself at the beginning of a path I had been searching for for over 10 years.

After the session he calmly reflected back to me my own power and effortlessly pointed me in the direction of myself.  Ten years later now I recognize that moment as a major catalyst on my own journey as a sound healer and shamanic practitioner and facilitator.  I am forever grateful to my dear brother for his authenticity and strength to bring forth his medicine for those of us who need it at the perfect time.

My next meeting with him 7 years later was just as profound, and now I consider him one of my dearest brothers.

Thank you Shine for all that you are and the magic you offer the world.

Sincerely,

André Nobels

My didjeridu sound healing session with Shine was amazing to say the least! He took the time to listen to the current and past challenges I have been going through in my relationships. And offered me some key insights that continue to help me to this day! The sound healing itself was profound I found it somehow so easy to let go into the energy vibrations and it allowed so much heaviness in my mind to be lifted way. At times I felt so connected to my ancestors and could feel their ancient wisdom, it is a precious feeling I will never forget, I draw strength from it in times of uncertainty. I look forward to future sessions with Shine! I feel so blessed and grateful to have him in my life, it has made the world of difference for me!

Shine’s music touched me in such a deep place within. In a gentle yet firm way, I felt shaken to my vulnerable core, and that vulnerable core was then exalted; emotionally and energetically placing me in in a right way, in right relationship with my own life essence. Im deeply grateful for the healing I experienced, and am still experiencing, following a healing session with Shine.
Thank you.

A Session with Shine
The most allowing… accepting… honouring… healing… safe… space I have experienced.

As I arrive Shine greets me warmly, we settle and chat for a while. His words ring true and our conversation enables me to find perspective in my thoughts and world view. We shift and I make myself comfortable on the mat. I feel his presence offering an opportunity for profound connection. I relax into that space. The music begins. The beauty of sound fills me. The power of the didj reverberates through my being and loosens where I have been holding. The feeling in Shine’s voice mirrors where I need to go and invites me there. He sings the languages of the ages that awaken within me parts forgotten but always known. The music is so incredible that at times I am pulled into my brain wondering “how is he even doing that?!”. But mostly I am mesmerized by the beauty of it all lulling me deeper and deeper within myself finding new openings to surrender into. It becomes a dance as I feel Shine with me in my consciousness – gently leading me on my own journey – and showing me what I have been unable to see. Eventually, gentle fingers on a Hang drum bring the music to a close. After I gather myself, again we chat. More falls into place. We say our goodbyes and I leave changed. Never before or since have I felt so truly and deeply held.

Much love and gratitude Shine. May you always be blessed.

Rarely do I come in contact with someone where the connection touches into the depth of my being

“I feel so very beyond blessed and grateful to have found Edysha and Shine. The gatherings they hold, and the container they have created is beyond words. The fact that it is so easily accessible in the city, and affordable is truly a gift. The two of them create the perfect balance between masculine and feminine, and the energy they bring to a space is very nourishing. The journeys I have done with them have been very potent, very deep, and very transformative. I have always felt very safe to allow myself to fully be present with whatever comes up for me, however wild and intense it may be. The sound exploration of Shine’s musical playing and Edysha’s voice is unreal and a total experience in it’s own. The people who also come to the gatherings have always been so supportive, and the community that has been formed is very special. I hope to continue growing and journeying with them for a while. I for sure recommend coming to a gathering, you won’t regret it <3 <3 <3”
