~ core soul singing ~
Dr. Michael DeMaria’s life turned inside out and upside down after the first decade of his professional life when he underwent a life transforming vision quest (lament in the wild) without food or water, guided by a native teacher. He went there suffering empathy fatigue and burnout after working for many years with severe cases of child abuse as a child protection team psychologist. The experience provided a profound healing, a course correction and gave him a vision for his life. Ever since his mission has been to help guide others to what he calls, “The ocean of peace that lies within.” He does this through his work as an embodied guide of the soul through music, poetry, art and training others in what he calls Souling™, which has emerged out of his 4 decades of working with transformative sound based meditative, movement and breathwork practices.
His healing music is heard a million times a week across the world, garnering him four Grammy® nominations, 8 ZMR awards, 6 #1 albums, a Native American Music Award and appearing on the Grammy® winning album, All About Bullies Big and Small. He is also a Sounds True recording artist with his music being featured on projects with Eckhart Tolle, Mark Nepo and Noah Levine. He is the author of 5 books, 3 of which were bestsellers, and is the creator and author of the Peace Within Process for Integrative Wellness which is the ground school for his Integrative Meditation Teacher Training. His newest book Souling: Birthing, Weaving and Tending a Soulful Life is due out 2021.
