WalkingStar has been playing Native American flute for 18 years. He is self taught and also plays other sound instruments. He is co-facilitator with Rick “Thunder” Bastine in Music As Medicine. WalkingStar is a ceremonialist of the North and South American traditional ways of native peoples, and channels all his life experiences through his music.
In his own words: “My Life has been quite the journey. I started out playing more traditional style flute music. Now as a result of my own growth and evolution over the years it’s changed quite a bit. I’m no longer just performing or playing music. It’s become much deeper. When I drop in it is wide and deep into my heart and spirit. It’s Medicine. My Medicine. My offering to Creation. For me it’s a Ceremony. This gift doesn’t belong to me — it’s for all the people. I just get out of the way. It’s not about knowing, it’s about being in that place of just allowing — over and over again. It’s the Voice of Creation, of the Divine. And I have offered myself to be in service and be a vessel to what wants to come through me.”
It’s Medicine. My Medicine. My offering to Creation. For me it’s a Ceremony. This gift doesn’t belong to me — it’s for all the people.
