Steve and Johnna Require Surgery; Please Help with a Donation!

Dear friends and fans,

It’s very difficult to share this, as we tend to favor privacy in our personal matters. However, we are reminded of times we’ve urged friends and loved ones to share their problems so that others might be allowed to “shine their love-light” on them. So, we suppose this also applies to us:

Johnna and Steve are facing a challenging situation. Following a couple tough years, both health-wise and financially, they now are both in need of major surgeries. Steve has lost most of the use of his right hand and arm, and is scheduled for a Total Shoulder Replacement on March 12,  and Johnna has a hard time standing and walking, and is in need of a Total Hip Replacement.

Naturally, these things don’t develop overnight, and we’ve been dealing with considerable pain and loss of function for quite some time, which has had a growing negative impact on many aspects of our lives. We’ve both tried numerous other therapies, exercise and bodywork, but the damage has only gotten more severe. Treatment just can’t wait any longer.

Fortunately, it appears that insurance will cover much of the medical bills, and for that we are most grateful. But we have already fallen behind paying our other bills, and are looking at a few months of recovery time. We haven’t been able to gig in several months, and won’t be able to resume for a while more. Similar restrictions also apply to most workshops, etc.

We’ve always tried our best to help others, whether via charitable fundraising, performing at benefits, gifting lessons, giving free-and-low cost treatments to those in need, and welcoming those unable to pay attending our Sound Healing Concerts. Now we are on the flip side and ask for your kind and generous assistance!

If you are able to help us out with a donation of any size, the easiest and quickest way to help is to please use the PayPal link below. Or, you can send donations to:

Johnna and Steve
3427 N. Colfax Ave.
Minneapolis, MN 55412

We are confident that we can “turn this ship around” and just need a helping hand to get through this. There are good things coming for us, some already in the works and we look forward to sharing them with you. We both express our sincerest, heartfelt gratitude to all our family, friends, fans, and supporters. We love and appreciate each and every one of you!

Sincerely,

Steve and Johnna




Don’t give ’til it hurts; just give ’til it feels good!

Didgeridoo Lessons and Workshops

Do you suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea, or know someone who does? Medical studies in Australia also indicate that playing the didgeridoo may also help reduce asthma symptoms. Or maybe you’re interested in the Didgeridoo for making music, meditation, or Sound Healing? 

We offer private lessons by appt. and also Beginning Didgeridoo Workshops, usually twice a month on a weeknight and on a weekend afternoon. November dates are TBA soon.

We offer several types of workshops and lessons. Find them here.


The August 2014 EDGE Magazine features another article by Steve about Sound Healing, this time in a group context.

Have an inside look at the theory, design and performance of our Sound Healing concerts, including how they differ from Kirtan, and why we don’t think of them as sound or gong “baths.” The article includes audio and video examples. Read it here.
