The Healing Power of Music

Therapeutic Songwriting Sessions

THE MUSIC MEDICINE JOURNEY

Over the years, I have embraced my journey as a music healer - my wife often refers to me as a musical shaman.  Whatever you would like to name me, ultimately people from all walks of life have been drawn to me with the desire to create and heal through music. 

They often share a similar story:  a deep love and connection to music that was broken due to life circumstances or trauma. 

One day, however, the call to create music is born again from within their being.

This is where my wife and I come in.

We are here to facilitate the rebirth and reclaiming of your voice and soul-sound vibration through the creation of song.

THE SACRED CONTAINER OF A SONG

Through the creation of a song, you can learn to honor, reflect upon or unfold a life experience from the depths within.  The song serves as a sacred conduit for healing.  It takes on a life of its own and becomes a message for you, those dear to you, and even the world.

In our collaboration, I introduce you to intuitive musical approaches I’ve explored through songwriting and music-making.  My wife helps you connect to your inner-world and feeling body.  We serve as facilitators, assisting you as you channel your truth through melody and lyric.

THE DEEP HEALING 

We have witnessed profound changes in people as a result of their song creations.  We have seen relationships mended, vulnerabilities expressed, addictions managed & healed, fears and anxieties faced, desires validated, self-love explored, epiphanies had, dreams discovered and much more. 

The beauty inherent in song creation is that it is an intimate exploration available for all who come to the experience with intention and a brave heart. 

Two Artists/healers united in love and Service

Oliver Pigott & Mama Danka

We met and fell in love as artists and discovered that our path to healing is through the expressive arts. 

10 years ago, Danka was the co-artistic director of the Sterling Theare in Toronto, where she was staging raw and cutting-edge theatrical productions with fellow colleague & artist friend Sophie Ann Rooney.  I was a 15-year music veteran, performing in the Toronto scene and developing as the frontman of the rock band The Celebration Army. 

We united and quickly began sharing in our passion for expression.  We encouraged growth in one another by participating in each other's art (Danka began working with me musically as we formed LambLion and I began to participate in her theatre and creative healing techniques).  The result was life-changing.  We continued to transform through devotion to each other and our creative journey.

As artists we have always had a heart of service.  We believe that creating art is a form of worship.  Daily, we strive to be living examples of what soulful co-creation can bring to relationships, families and all connections forged in love and in community. 

We consider working with others in this capacity an honor.  We are here to foster expressive healing and the creation of soulful Spirit-filled art. 

BEGIN THE JOURNEY

I have had the great pleasure of working with Ollie and Danka on a collaborative music project for an upcoming creative arts nonprofit. Each song embodies a differing emotion, allowing the listener to feel through the melodies and lyrics and activate empathic connection to the human condition. The process of creation has been a true delight, from ideation of music to formation of vocal themes. Writing with Ollie and Danka is a healing experience in an of itself, and I cannot wait to showcase our final project in 2023!” - Nadine Copley
