Music has been recognized as healing energy for centuries. Music has been a major gift  for spiritual, emotional and physical healing and grounding. I’ve loved just about everything about music since I can remember. New Orleans and all of south Louisiana is very well known as breeding grounds for what we call “musical families”. Usually it is referring to a fairly well-known family name and the brothers, sisters, parents, aunts and uncles etc., who are all involved in music in some way. I’ve always been in awe of the thought of it all.

As I was growing up, I took on the education of a lifetime. Not because it was a choice, but rather, because it was a way of life in this enchanted spiritual place that we live, here in south Louisiana.  The music that was played in the household when I was 10, still gives me goosebumps until this day. The playlist was not large, but it was powerful and it was genuinely Nawlins. The major culprit of this environment, straight out of the University of Hard-Knocks was my father or “pops” as we called him. Let me see if I can give you an example playlists we were exposed to as kids: Read the rest of the story….

Music has been recognized as healing energy for centuries. For me it’s been a matter of survival. Music has been a  blessing for spiritual, emotional and physical healing that I could not ever repay. It’s simply what keeps me as grounded as I could ever be. I’ve loved just about everything about music since I can remember.

I am overjoyed and too blessed and profoundly humbled to have been able to experience what it’s like to compose, record, and play your own music, and like it (most of the time).

Blue Wisdom

Wow, after months of intensive studying, remembering, researching and writing, we finally got to the end of the Blue Shamanic Apprenticeship courses.  This has been an honor for me to take this journey again.  When practicing Shamanism, it always gives me a humbling feeling to participate in traditional rituals that our ancestors practiced.  When writing, I literally had to address all of the issues that I experienced in my own apprenticeship.  That was really nice and another of those mind-blowing experiences. Despite the fact that our website may seem a little disjointed at times, there was a specific purpose and audience for writing the course.  My background is in corporate America from a career standpoint.  After years of observing and practicing, I noticed that there were a lot of folks interested in mysticism and spiritual healing, but maybe never found the right entry point into Shamanism or some other belief system.   I was specifically trying to communicate with those souls first.  As an outgrowth of that target audience, I began to notice that the 20 something age group also liked the style in which we wrote the course. I also wanted to touch as many as possible who may have been raised in a similar background as myself.  It just felt like there was a big wide Houston, Tx sized highway running between the environment where I started this journey, and where I needed to be to enter the path slowly.  This is an attempt to lovingly and compassionately become the bridge between these two places.  We also have written the course in a way that welcomes those who have busy lives working and raising a family, etc. There are 3 courses, but the first one is FREE and is the 1st 3 chapters from part 1 of the Blue Shamanic Apprenticeship, so there are really only two full courses. Blue Shamanic Apprenticeship, Part 1 & 2.   At the completion of both of those courses, a student would be certified by Blue Bass Drum. I am really proud of how these courses have taken shape, and although they may go through future changes, my hope is that they are right for right now.  If you are at all interest in this type of work, there is much more information, including a curriculum in the description of each course.  Try the first one on us.  Blue collar Shamanism is a 3 Unit FREE course and sets the tone for the kind of work we do.
