I was born in Brasil in 1981. I started my professional path studying Medicine . My father is a doctor and has a hospital in my city (Belo Horizonte -MG), so he encouraged me to be a doctor too. I was not sure but decided to do, planning to specialize in Psychiatry, since I've always been passionate about the human psyche. I studied a lot to be admitted, succeed and did it for 2 years, but then started to feel it was not for me. My world view, specially about spirituality and the interconnection between body and spirit, didn't seem to have space there. Although everyone discouraged me to quit it after so much efforts, I was getting nauseas in my stomach when had to go to classes and understood that my body and soul was refusing to be there. I gathered the courage to leave, even knowing that my father would be upset with the decision. I just had to do it.
Months after I started Psychology and graduated in this course. I didn't resonate with a lot of approaches that I studied in the university, but found the Jungian Psychology and started to study it on my own - since we saw very few things about his approach there. I read hundreds of books and kept trying to register and understand my dreams, a central point in Jungian Psychotherapy. Jung is open to the spiritual vision, and uses the artistic expression in the therapeutic process - which is why I felt a lot of affinity to him. In this meantime, I also learnt many complementary therapies - Reiki, Kinesiology, Naturopathy, Shiatsu Massage, Art Therapy, Sound Therapy & others. I was always a very curious spirit wanting to understand the universe and human being.
When I was 22 years old I discovered Ayahuasca. It was the most powerful experience in my life and I knew it would change me forever. I discovered that I had the ability to sing during a ceremony. In a moment, the plant literally brought out my voice, a voice that in the first moment I didn't even recognize. It seemed like something that was stuck for years in my throat was suddenly removed, opening space for a clear, loud and beautiful sound. I realized that was a gift, and I should care and develop this gift. That's when I decided to take singing classes.
My mother is a pianist and I played piano since I was very young, so music was ingrained in me, but I discovered the passion for singing just in this point. I started learning classical singing (Italian Arias, Operas), but as soon as I learnt the techniques I applied them to the songs that really touched me, the Celtic songs. I always felt affinity with Celtic culture, and somehow their art is very natural for me. But the Shamanic music also called me, so I was exploring both. I loved to improvise, just opening my mouth and letting sounds flow out of me, and realised how healing this was for me. I started to record some of these improvisations and that's how my CD Hayeya! All Tribes with Evandro Lopes was born, a mix of electronic and tribal music. I decided to do a Celtic project too, which I named Celtic Seeds, recorded a CD and built a group to do presentations. We did many shows and Celtic weddings in São Paulo (Brasil), where I moved in 2011. Singing for me was always connected to healing, and I listened many times from people how transformed they felt after listening to me. But I wanted to connect even more my art and my healing, putting together both sides of me. At this point I had already completed a Sound Therapy course, but wanted to create something new, totally born from me. This was the origin of the work that I probably consider my biggest jewel: Living Singing - medicine music. I open myself to receive the sound that each chakra needs to be balanced and energized, combining my knowledge of these energy centers with my sensitivity as artist. I was working as therapist and doing these celtic presentations in São Paulo, when I started to feel I needed to expand myself. In 2018 I felt it was the time to move to another country, something I had always dreamed about. I decided to move to a Celtic place, to be closer to this culture I love. I chose Ireland, and decided to come alone, with no acquaintances and no guarantees of work, literally following my dreams and my heart. I just felt it was my path, and trusted it. I arrived here with one bag and a temporary place to stay - all I had to rebuild my life. I started to work in a healing center in Galway, but as a new practitioner in Galway, I hadn't enough clients, so I also went to show my art in the streets. It was a period full of learnings and beautiful experiences.
One year after I met my partner, and we decided to open a wellness center together - Emerald Wellness. He is a chiropractor and takes care of the physical part, and I take care of the psychological and energetic part - that's how we integrate and address all human areas for complete health. We keep growing our center, I keep expanding my art learning celtic harp and celtic songs, and we now facilitate shamanic retreats, where I honor and put into practice everything that I learnt in these 19 years of Shamanism. Our next goal is to expand this healing to other countries all over the world, spreading our energy, passion and dedication for what we do. I have been living in Ireland for 4 years and I'm sure I took the right choice following my heart. I couldn't be happier and more satisfied with life. Pure gratitude, happiness and love.
