In the Netherlands born Zelday Karssen (1981), father of two children, is a Didgeridoo player, musician, crafter, teacher, soundhealer and spiritual awakening guidance. He studied and lives the path of Didgeridoo ever since 2001 and deeply devoted his life towards this ancient instrument which became his full profession in 2009. Throughout time he studied from traditional to modern styles and is a known teacher when it comes to consciousness about body, sound and spirit. During the last decade he taught and played throughout a wide variation of festivals, concerts, ceremonies and retreats around the Netherlands and Europe. Zelday inspired literally thousands of people with his spiritual devotion for his music, instruments and life itself.
Zelday lived throughout his life many dimensions of existence. He travelled around the planet to synchronize with her divine natural beauty and came in contact with various cultures and tribes in Europe, Asia, Australia and South-America. An unavoidable and pure kind of awareness about our cosmological journey on this planet makes him a very sensitive earthly person. Life experiencing from the heart, also came from a tremendous polar side effect as he struggled existence with long term depressions, confusion and substance addictions in very early stages of his life. These mainly caused by the struggle and inner incapability living in the modern western society. Zelday transformed deeply his waking soul into existence, to reconnect with his heart, to reconnect with his ancient knowledge. This ‘language’ became, besides a variation of instruments, one of his most important tools to work with nowadays.
His refined and organic sense of sound let him grew towards a developed sound healer and over the last years he studied entheogenic plant medicines. Due winter times he travels to the Amazonian rainforest to deepen his awakening in the shamanic field of the plants. Working as a musician, sound healer and his natural connection with these specific plants, allows him to combine these gifts into one. Zelday and his partner Yama Voorhorst became initiated as a Medicine Couple due the so called dietas in the Peruvian Amazonian and they both live and work in the field of spiritual awakening and transformation.
” Consciousness became my true Religion, a religion based on Knowing rather than believing.
We all have the potential to awaken into our true Self.
Your authentic Self , your Spirit that is temporary and organically embodied by the elements of nature.
That delicate nature that made us all Indigenous to Mother Earth.”
