Tikal feels into the space and heart to hear the currents of existing songs, and in the Sabda Experience, invites us to offer creative sonic gifts through the medium of our vocal chords and our soul, to make an offering with one’s body, in elation to Source, to Creation -residing in each of us, and to celebrate the raw beauty in WHAT IS, this by purely experiencing moment to moment.

Eartheart Qigong is a blending of two traditional forms of Qigong: Baduanjin and Shibashi, with my own contemporary form called the Eartheart sequence.

Tikal improvises a profound sound journey singing from a soul level and drumming with instruments of the ancients. Tikal sings as though a requesting for spirit guidance, she will paint a mystical soundscape and create a temple space that will allow for a profound journey into ancestral lands and soul connections. With her care for inner guidance (intuitive healing) and her passion for folk music or celebration of the spirit of Life and deep sound trance, we sit together to combine our energy into a deep sound journey.
