Emiliano Ena

Sound Artist / Percussionist / Travel Guide & Advisor / Menswork

Trance inducing DJ-sets, ceremonial drumming, sound healing meditations, nomadic culture, movement and ritual infused workshops. These worlds all converge in the sound artistry of Emiliano.

Where people gather through music and dance there is a possibility they can have profound experiences.

Drawing inspiration from the 5 Rhythms map, dance ceremonies, mountain treks, the desert and his love for world music and sufi zikr (\remembrance) rhythms his DJ-sets tend to be non-linear, transcending genre and styles.

Emiliano is mentored by SVARAM Sound Experience ™   and works on a regular basis with his Alyssa who is currently studies with the TAMALPA : Life Art Process

Since 2020 he co-leads Stillpoint: A journey of Soma and Sound with Alyssa, an experience that regulates the ParaSympathetic Nervous System.

He is part of the JourneyMen Eastern Circle USA.

Rituals are important.

Stay tuned on his Mixcloud Channel, where you can hear sounds from all around the globe transcending borders. #OpenHearts #OpenRoads.

Crystal Hoffman

Crystal is a Clinical and Folk Herbalist, Yogini, Traditional Astrologer, Journey Work Practitioner, and Story Teller.

She combines all of these healing tools in her one-on-one healing work with clients and teaches courses on plant magic and medicine which reveal the elegance of how scientific and spiritual perspectives of healing mirror one another.

Her magical work started young, palm reading in middle school and giving tarot readings in high school everywhere from AP Bio to the office of her gas station job where she also happened to work as the town herbalist.

After leaving her career as a professor of poetry and literature, she spent nearly a decade studying with healers from various traditions around the globe in pursuit of freeing herself from debilitating chronic illnesses.

After passing the gifts that she gleaned from that healing on to numerous suffering friends and family members, she decided to follow her calling as the legs of the plants and the voice of the stars.

She has since guided hundreds of students and clients through their own healing journeys and continues to strive to learn, listen, and serve in equal balance.
