Residing in British Columbia, Gizelle is both a teacher and researcher of Shamanic Studies. With over 35 years’ experience as a teacher, mentor and counsellor, along with knowledge culled from may travels and studies, she brings to her teaching a light-hearted attitude and common sense simplicity. On a chance meeting with a gypsy woman in her native Hungary at the age of fourteen, Gizelle was introduced to a mysterious other world. Of all the possible entrances to the lower world, her portal was a stinging nettle patch. Following this life-changing encounter, she embarked on a journey around the world, and through formal and self-directed studies of many subjects, she faithfully practiced the old gypsy’s advice. Among many profound things, she told her: “Never be afraid to step into the dark, for it contains all possibilities.”
Teresa Helgeson believes “Plants HAVE a Consciousness” Teresa, the Plant Music Whisperer, has conducted case studies; using the Music for the Plants device, to pilot the protocol for exploring the impact plant music therapy has on a human and the results were nothing less than astounding. The Music of the Plants device is a biofeedback system that measures the electrical resistance of vegetable tissue and translates the signals into sound.
