My Name is Larisa Gosla

and I am an international recording and touring musician with years of expertise singing, songwriting, performing, and offering vocal and music programs for people just like YOU to finally step deeper into their musical and creative path. I believe that singing is our birthright and that we are more happy as human beings when we let ourselves express through the power of music. My journey has taken me from performing for thousands of people all around the world, to studying hypnotherapy and sound healing, and to humbly sitting and sharing music in plant medicine ceremonies. My combination of experience, skill, and expertise is here to take you to your next creative levels!

Singing and drumming has been around since we were a very indigenous species! We have used it to pray, to unite, to connect to a power greater than us, to harmonize, to grieve, to celebrate, and so much more! And your voice, your song, your chanting, is unique to you!

We Sing to Heal.  We Sing to Pray. We Sing to Celebrate!

Meet Our Guest Facilitators

B. Louis

B. Louis is a singer/songwriter and sound healer whose mission is to share and channel his voice to the world. Healing music became his mission when he realized the healing effects people were having just in one session, with a combination of his own exploration with sacred plant medicines. He believes that by combining intentional music with meditation and self-reflection, we can begin the healing process with our own willingness to simply go within. B. uses several instruments while singing/channeling his voice to create a safe container to go on an inward journey. 

B. Louis and Larisa will join forces to deliver a sound healing that is Earth + Angelic.
