Words cannot express the profound and resonate impact Suzanne Sterling has made in both of our lives. She introduced Lisa to the world of sound healing. How to heal individual and collective core wounds with the magic we hold within us and the power of our own voice. How to honour where we are right now – as the sacred we are longing for. Suzanne has shown us the art and science of holding safe, sacred space for others and the importance of weaving social justice with our personal and professional work (without burning out). We are so honoured to share with you today our beloved Suzanne Sterling for our Sacred Mentor Series.
