Danielea (pronounced dah-ni-lee-ah) is a sound weaver, reiki master, eco-artist, ceremonialist and community facilitator trained in transformational sound practices from the shamanic, yogic and theatrical traditions.
Through her Soundspa business Danielea offers private sound healing and reiki sessions, group sound baths and a wide variety of ceremonies to honour personal, family and community transitions.
As an eco-spiritual artist and founder of the Water Gratitude Project Danielea co-creates outdoor art projects and ceremonies with communities who desire to build personal relationships with local Water bodies.
For Danielea everything is alive and has it's own innate intelligence and voice. She lives at the confluence of two rivers in a small town called Quesnel in the northern interior of British Columbia Canada. She draws her inspiration and medicine from her relationships with Fraser River, Quesnel Lake, Rocky Mountains, North Wind, Grandfather Sun and Raven, her helper and guide.
After 17 years facilitating and performing empowering forms of theatre with marginalized communities Danielea turned to sound healing (2005) as a way to manage a chronic pain condition and eliminate depression. She studied with the top four western female sound healers, Jill Purce, Chloe Goodchild, Shawna Carol and finally Silvia Nakkach where she earned her Yoga of the Voice credentials.
As a healing musician Danielea uses her gift for deep listening to be a conduit for sounds that restore health and harmony to a person, group or place in Nature. Danielea's main instruments are the skin drum, harmonium, crystal bowls, bamboo chimes and voice. Through her deep meditation and communication with elder Trees, Rivers and Lakes over the past 6 years Danielea developed a unique improvisational vocal style she calls sound weaving which can at times be lyrical and beautiful and other times guttural and primitive.
Danielea brings a wealth of cross-cultural experience to her healing and ceremonial work. She has lived in 8 different countries and experienced deep immersions into the deaf, prison, differently-abled, first nations and islamic cultures. Prior to dedicating herself to Applied Arts in 1988 Danielea had a career in banking, law and advertising.
