The true use of music is to become musical in one’s thoughts, words and actions. One should be able to give the harmony for which the soul yearns and longs every moment. All the tragedy in the world, in the individual and in the multitude, comes from lack of harmony, and harmony is best given by producing it in one’s own life.”

Nora Harrington

Bainbridge Island, U.S.A.

“I really liked working with Heleniq, learning from her was pretty revolutionary for me…the way she taught.. made the knowledge accessible…As a facilitator, Heleniq is unshakably calm…exuding a grounded and radiant presence. It is inspiring to watch… I felt like no matter what scheduling hiccups or unforeseen circumstances arose, she was going to smooth them out gracefully and calmly. Also, I felt her love, devotion and warmth toward the participants of the workshop… she seemed very comfortable in her position as the leader and facilitator. A very special gift. You are the lionheart.

Heather Wolf

Bainbridge Island, U.S.A.

“Your talk on brain wave states & the pineal gland & all the implications of drumming… sets a collective context that is very moving & inspiring. Bridging between states of mind, moving often and swiftly back & forth between meta & small thinking mind states strengthens our ability to shift mentally on our own, which is the greater purpose, the skill you awaken & teach…Thank you, again, for your generous large heart, playful lightness & beauty in your visit! What a joy it was to have you.”
