The Healing Sound of Chanting
April 25, 2017
Hosted by Kristi Ellen, the Mosaic Shaman
Kirtan is a singing and musical experience that involves ancient Sanskrit chants. Instruments such as harmonium, the even or ektrar (a form of string instrument), the tabla (one sided drum), the mrdanga or pakhawaj (two sided drum), flute and karatalas or talas (cymbals) are used while chanting a mantra that consists of ancient sounds. This form of musical chants originated in India and is used in meditation, yoga and dance. It has the ability to quite the mind and when singing together in a group you can experience a deep connection with yourself and everyone in the room. You experience the the scared connection of singing in a ancient holy language together. The magic of the chant carries you within to experiences healing on the level of the soul.

My show is about changing the stories of your life that keep you stuck in recreating unwanted experiences. It is based on the concept that we can take shattered pieces of our lives and put them back together and create a beautiful life, just as I do with mosaic art. When I see others struggle, with their lives just not working out, I often see a recurring theme. As I have been blessed enough to have had great teachers that shared with me the knowledge to change my own life, I now want to give that same gift back to the world. If I help remind just one person of their divine birth right to live a full happy life, then I have lived the purpose to which I believe I was born.

I am a mosaic artist. I trained in at the Mosaic Institute with Laurel True, a world renowned artist. I have an icon piece in downtown Moab, Utah and art in Gallery Moab. I am a full mesa carrying Certified Shaman Practitioner through the Peruvian linage. I studied and graduated with Dr Alberto Villoldo of the Four Winds Society. I am also a life coach through 3Key Elements and certified with Denise Linn of The International Institute of Soul Coaching. I received my Six Sensory Certification training with Sonia Choquette. I have traveled all over the world and have personally trained with amazing healers such as Louise Hayes, Dr Wayne Dyer, Debbie Ford, Dr Ellie Drake and Neal Donald Walsch to name a few. All of these practitioners are or were leaders in their fields. I decided to get my training through first hand experiences. I was the Bio-lingual Outreach Director for Seekhaven and have 140 hours of training in working with women who have had domestic violence issues. I also took dance training at BYU.
Putting all of these experiences together, I created a program called Spirit Meditation Dance. I opened the Mosaic Healing Gardens, which is a self-sustainable garden surrounded by mosaic art and I am the owner of Soul Healers Path life coaching. I teach workshops, I am a public speaker, writer, and dancer, and do both private and group coaching and teaching.
