Rowan has always been inspired and very passionate about the process that goes with the awakening of human consciousness in individuals, groups and on the planet as a whole. He possesses a grounded intuition, which allows him to guide people to let go of old baggage and outdated perspectives, for them to step into a totally new way of being. He has been working with the breath, self-enquiry, meditation, sound medicine and other healing modalities for many years and is a very competent facilitator and coach; aware of the energy in the room, the group dynamic and the needs of the individuals. His ‘Breathing into Wholeness’ workshops and one2one’s will leave you with a long lasting sense of transformation within body mind and soul.
Rowan has also developed a considerable reputation for his deeply sensitive talent as a percussionist, working alongside many renowned artists and troubadours. His unique dynamic sound is clearly divined and can be described as deep, sensitive, powerful and even mystical. He likes to evoke spaces with his music that allow the listener to drop into an authentic heart space.
He has his own healing practice in Lewes (Pop Up Studios), where he sees clients.
