Her mission is to support people to live from their heart with light and love. She works with respect for everyones original quality and finds her inspiration in how the bees work together. The way the bees cooperate is how they make the gold, the honey. Its about balance and harmony.
She is reconnected by ancestors with the knowledge of the Elder Futhark Runes. The origin of these Runes are from the ancestor tradition of the low countries/west Europe and it is time for her to go back to our own culture and traditions.

So it was channelled to her:
“Find the twelve sacred sounds on the Spinal Cord, if you find them and make these sounds with the people, they can be healed through their own DNA.”

Since childhood Theresia ( Whisper ) travels through the worlds of her star ancestors and Elven families.
She was bit of a strange and dreamy girl…not of this world some said .
She didn’t speak a lot and stayed somewhat hidden away from groups of people.
That sometimes felt a bit lonely, until she met an Irish old Bard who told her she is” one of the Fae people”. And that she should not forget to share the knowledge and energy of the Fae with people nowadays .
It’s time to connect …..

And so she did … Theresia found a way to integrate and share her worlds as a dance teacher … later traveling with puppet theater … storytelling and harp and drum and songs inspired by her star family and Elvenways.

In a way his life is mysterious, but he is here and now.
One of the last Celtic priests in Europe who received his knowledge from an old uninterrupted family tradition, his grandparents and an uncle passed the family knowledge on to him.

He travelled and travelled more, worked with Native Americans, with Indian teachers, traveled to Ghana, to a rainmaker, and met Europe’s last druids and shamans of Baikal and Altai in Siberia.
It is the meaning and purpose of his work to cultivate the old eurasien rituals again, so that the people of EurAsia are beginning to work together in peace and freedom.
The healing of the missing love relations in our lives is his special concern.

This is how he says about love simply and clearly:
“Love is law that Goddess and God gave to this world when they created this world.
Love is free, it doesn’t expect, it doesn’t demand.
Love needs no reply.”

In encounter with this mystical flute, the Ney, his playing style shows the reflection of different approaches, regional Anatolian folk music, and Ottoman and Indian classical music as well as fusion and experimental forms.

Music is an invisible bridge of a breath, where we all are linked and somehow creating a view of life and love in a genuine dimension. Its a bridge through a stone to human, through the hearth to cosmos, through silence to the big bang, through multitude to the oneness.
