Class Teacher

Shawn DeRyder

Shawn DeRyder is a inspired individual hailing from the hills of New York State. When he is not chopping firewood, or gathering wild food he wields a set of powerfully healing tools, his instruments….. He’s traveled far and wide to find instruments for restoring health and relieving pain. One of them is a didgeridoo from Queensland, Austrailia. The didgeridoo has been used as a healing tool by Aboriginal Australians for at least 40,000 years. They healed broken bones, muscle tears and illnesses of every kind with their enigmatic musical instrument. Another is a Native American flute, an instrument know to transport people into an oasis of calmness, serenity and introspection. It does this by evoking a deep listening and a state of heightened awareness within the subject.
