More about the performers.
John Dumas M.S. is an internationally renowned musician, shamanic astrologer, inspirational teacher, and pioneer in sound healing. He performs concerts and leads workshops and retreats internationally with his unique handcrafted flutes and didgeridoos. John has developed a unique sound therapy/healing ceremony that is titled "Shamanic Journey Into Dreamtime." This voyage into the dreamtime is an experiential interactive sound therapy that facilitates the healing of our mind, body & spirit. Healing through sound is the culmination of John’s educational background in the fine arts, Psychology and study of indigenous cultures. With the intention of love and compassion, John opens the doorway into the dreamtime, an altered state of time and space, producing awakened dreaming.
Performing in many countries and sacred sites, throughout, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and North America has given John the opportunity to lead ceremonies and play inside Egyptian pyramids, Mayan temples, England’s stone circles and sacred mountaintops like Mt Saana, high above the Arctic Circle in Finland. More recently exotic places like Bali, China, and Japan have been a second home. John’s sense of commitment to his life’s work to inspire love, empowerment, and unity worldwide continues to evolve. It is John’s belief that through the universal language of music; where words are not needed that the beauty of oneness begins to emerge all over the world ushering in a true Aquarius age.
John has several recordings available that explore the infinite realm of dreamtime ranging from tribal/world trance to relaxing meditative soundscapes exploring higher states of consciousness. He calls Hawaii home where he enjoys surfing and swimming with the whales and dolphins, creates his one of a kind instruments, performs concerts, facilitates sound healing ceremonies and live ecstatic dance. John is available for private sessions over Skype as well as in person.
