For as far back as I can remember, I have had a curiosity about how life works, how people work, how I work. This has led me down many paths and I have met many challenges on the way, but I have been very fortunate to have met some incredible teachers, friends and practices on the way. Inspired by these teachers I have trained in the following:
The Naked Voice with Chloe Goodchild. A incredible journey through sound, movement and silence to bring one back home to oneself, to your true nature. Learning about compassion, love and non-judgement through the simple yet profound practices of the Naked Voice. In the words of Chloe
"THE NAKED VOICE is your original voice, fully-embodied, naturally-expressed, and free of self-consciousness. It is your authentic sound, as unique as your DNA or fingerprint. In 1990, singer and voice teacher, Chloe Goodchild, founded The Naked Voice, as a unique method that explores the human voice as a source of individual and collective self-discovery, linking to the most profound levels of human wisdom."
At the backbone of this work is the inspiration of a wonderful Indian Guru called Anandamayi Ma - who's compassionate and laughing spirit cradles and inspires this work.
Sound Healing Practitioner and Tutor with The College of Sound Sound healing. Sound healing is the "therapeutic application of sound frequencies to the body/mind of a person with the intention of bringing them into a state of harmony and health. " Simon Heather. As well as offering one-to-one sound healing treatments, I am passionate about enabling others to do the same. I am now a Tutor with the college with the aim of spreading the knowledge and innate wisdom of the human voice as a tool of healing and transformation.
Poetry Medicine with Kim Rosen. Initially through the work of the Naked Voice, I discovered a world of poetry that I previously had no real understanding of. This is not the poetry of school books and learning and analysing, but poetry that is spoken, that comes straight from the heart, that calls forth memories, realigns lost pathways in the brain and which cuts through illusion to bring us to a deeper truth and understanding of who you are.
Breathwork with Kim Rosen. Having experienced the practice of Breathwork during Kim's retreats, I jumped at the chance to train with her to bring this to others. Breathwork, in essence, is the simple practice of remembering and rediscovering our true full breath, the breath that we were born with, the breath that has been frozen within us through life's traumas. In the words of Kim Rosen:
"The word "inspiration" means to breathe spirit into matter. As we consciously deepen and open our breathing we are literally and viscerally incarnating
ourselves. We are bringing our aliveness to the areas within us that have become frozen or deadened due to fear. We are bringing spirit into matter."
I have had the honour of sharing all that I have learned in workshops, retreats, trainings and one to one sessions over the last ten years. It is such a joy to me to share this work in my own unique way. My deepest passion, my commitment to myself and my invitation to all that I meet is freedom. Freedom to live fully, undefended lives and to your full potential.
What people say...
Lucia it would give me great pleasure to testify to you and your contribution to the well-being of so many of us through your work. I find you and all the many aspects of your insightful work, inspiring, motivating and encouraging. Margaret
Lucia Sheehan is one of those special people who, on first meeting, you feel at home. She comes from a place of love and kindness in all she does. That is why I put myself in her capable hands for a sound healing. It was such a beautiful experience. From the offset, Lucia made me feel safe and loved. She performed the session with skill and compassion. The overall result was profound and very powerful. I would highly recommend Lucia. Nadine
