Artist & Healer
I've been gifted with spiritual names over the years of studying with gurus, masters and maestros. I truly am honoured to receive this blessing and a piece of me resonates with each one.
Before these gifts were bestowed upon me, I had already took this into my own hands. I was born in the Yukon as Samantha. My birth name means quiet, listening one and this is very much true to my character but I felt limited in that vibration so I change it to Saleste Mele. Hey, I know this is not the norm but I’ve always been one to take the path less travelled.
In 2010 I attended the Nosara Yoga Institute where my perception of the Universe changed. After that experience I knew I was to use my voice in some way to help heal the world. That’s when I changed my name to reflect my inner calling. To me, Saleste Mele means heaven song, a combination of honouring my birth name – to incorporate the spelling into my chosen name and the latin and Hawaiian meanings.
In many different traditions, you are given a name to signify a rite of passage. So why not create your own?
My background includes many titles. I started off with aromatherapy back in '99. I received my holistic therapist diploma as well as my Master Herbalist diploma from Wild Rose College. I am a Usui Reiki Master as well I have my Karuna Reiki and Lightarian Rieki. I trained with Jonathan Goldman and Lama Tashi (pioneers of the Sound Healing movement) back in '02 and have been working with sound ever since. I received my Massage therapy diploma in '01 however that is no longer a focus of my practice. I took my teachers training in psychosomatic from the Australasian Institute. I've studied quantum healing, receiving numerous diplomas.
I also received my Yoga Teachers Training and currently teach at studios. My focus is mainly meditation and sound but I work with asanas to allow the body to open up to the vibrations. I'm sure there's something I've left out. The list is long, this is my life's work.
Currently I am working on my dissertation for my doctoral regarding the power of vibrational healing. I just finished my Masters in Metaphysical Science. I am in the midst of designing curriculum for a sound healers training based off of all the knowledge that I have accumulated over the last couple of decades. Currently I host workshops and sound meditations and am working towards expanding people's knowledge base and awareness around this powerful modality.
Love to all.
The services I offer include different aspects of the philosophies I hold dear to my heart. As we are all multi-dimensional beings, we all have various passions that fill our lives which include being of service to others. Being an artist and healer it is my intention to invoke light and love (and laughter) into all aspects of life. Spirituality, freedom and wisdom are a big part of me.
My background also includes over a decade in the film and television industry. I have had the privilege of working as a lead on some independent projects. In addition I have had a hand in creating and writing a few of them. My current projects include a focus on the power of words and vibrations, and music for the purpose of elevating consciousness. I love the collaboration process and am creating a debut album with a prolific musician. I am always open to hearing about how I may be of assistance to new projects, feel free to contact me.
