Penny is a Healer, a Shaman, and a former Psychotherapist. Her life and work are grounded by music as a master healer and a route to spiritual connection. She has sung in choirs, in musical theatre productions, in an improv theatre company, in two professional girl-bands, around many a campfire, and in every place she’s called home. Arranging music for choirs and bands; playing piano and guitar; dancing in flahsmobs; recording her original healing chants; drumming on native healing frame drum, Nepalase mahdal, djembe, dumbek, and bongos are among the ways Penny loves to share music-joy.
