The didjeridu (Yidaki) is one of the oldest known instruments in the world. This instrument is perfect for soloists, musical accompaniment, or meditation. The technique of circular breathing allows a continuous note to be played, inducing a trance on the player and the listener while facilitating healing and spiritual awareness. A variety of sound healing techniques can be learned as you play and receive healing treatments. Delve into traditional and contemporary rhythms, harmonics and vocalizing with the didjeridu. One-on-one instruction, ensemble, and solo playing serve all levels of experience.

Shine Edgar, born and raised in Australia, brings more than 12 years experience in didjeridu playing and sound healing. He was initiated into didjeridu healing by an aboriginal elder. Shine is a founding member of the didjeridu percussion ensemble Down to Earth.

Shine and Edysha Ee shared their combined healing energy in a session with Lynn Thompson in November 2007. This 30 minute show features their conversation afterwards, and includes an introduction to the instruments.

Upcoming workshop with Shine in 2008: http://www.hollyhock.ca/cms/index.cfm?Group_ID=3303

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
