Danke an das Universum das ich Iven in Vancouver treffen durfte. Wo er mich mit seiner Straßen Musik verzaubert hat. Iven zu zuhören wie er mit der Music spielt lässt meinen Geist fliegen, daher wahr es für mich eine wunder schöne Erfahrung bei zwei seinen Sound Healing Events Teil zu nehmen. Außerdem bin ich sehr dankbar dafür das Iven mich mehr in Verbindung mit Dankbarkeit im täglichen Leben gebracht hat. Jeden Tag Dankbar zu sein für die Mahlzeit die ich habe die Natur die mich umgibt jeden baum den ich sehe... Iven ist ein sehr besonderer Mensch für mich. Durch seine Kunst Therapie konnte ich mir selbst näher kommen um meine Verletzungen zu erkennen und zu heilen. Danke Iven!

Iven has offered me excellent guidance over the last few years, most recently through 1-hour counselling sessions over Skype. After some experiences I had with Ayahuasca, Iven helped me to take what I had learned about myself and to integrate them into self-healing. After my father had passed and I also had an emotionally difficult separation and divorce, Iven noticed I was bottling up my pain (I almost came to tears during a quiet friendly conversation we had.) so he suggested I do some counselling sessions with him.

Through formal counselling sessions, Iven has given me simple but effective tools to help me move myself forward using journaling, drawing, and useful daily habits and reminders. I have been learning to focus on being authentic which, through Iven, I realize I have struggled with since childhood. Iven has also helped me to notice when my opinions and self-talk are damaging to myself, particularly to my confidence. Overall, Iven's counselling has been very helpful for me and I'm quite grateful.

I felt held and safe in his Expressive Art Therapy session sharing and expressing my darkest memories for the first time.

Iven challenges me with my beliefs about my self and never judges me in a way that puts me in shame. With his help, I’ve hit many breakthroughs in my emotional health. He is authentic and really hears me out, he is gentle but at the same time demonstrates his actions affirmatively and positively – he has no actual agenda but to assist in helping me to call attention to the pain in my body that need healing.

I am one to isolate and hideaway at times, but Iven gently reminds me that I am worthy of my own love and of others'. His Gratitude Sound Bath events reminded me of that, I felt save and held by the music being played and I was reminded how great it can be to share and be with others.

I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing Iven’s unique musical journeys for many years. Each time, I am transported to another layer of being. His nurturing nature creates a safe container where everybody feels welcome. His sounds are at once transcendent and of this earth. As a yoga teacher, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with Iven - blending his healing sounds with my restorative yoga offerings. Iven has the sensitivity to read the energy of the room, and the courage to meet people where they’re at. He was able to work seamlessly with me and all the participants to co-create a memorable experience for us all. His is a gift that keeps on giving….resonance.

I have had the pleasure of experiencing Iven's musical talent in several settings including at Onsite (a withdrawal management program for residents of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside in early recovery), in guided meditations, and in live performances at various social events. Iven is truly gifted and music is his first language. His music can alter your state of consciousness and help you process deep emotional blockages, leaving you feeling calm, grounded, and refreshed thereafter. He is able to effortlessly adapt his music to the needs of the audience for which he plays, which makes him an appropriate musician for any setting.

If you are looking for someone to help people go deeper into themselves whether for healing, grounding, or experiencing joy, he is the right person for the job. His gentle and soothing sounds would be especially healing for people experiencing pain, depression, anxiety, and at the end of life. Thank you Iven for all that you do - it is an honor to know you.

Iven leads with his heart and finds ways to facilitate you empowering yourself and your inner child again. He shared his home, family and resources to allow me opportunity to feel safe and heal in my own ways. Learning valuable knowledge on plant medicines and ceremonial rituals in day to day things, like sitting down to have a meal. His vast array of knowledge, sensitivity and big heart allow for healing and growth to occur naturally. One of the greatest gifts he brought to light for my life was the focus on mindfulness. Thank you for your energy, time and sharing of wisdom Iven. It is a pleasure to know you and be blessed with shared experiences.

I have had the pleasure of having two professional musicians come to our palliative care unit over the last several months to play for our patients. They were intuitive to the patients’ needs and very flexible and accommodating to our environment. They were comfortable engaging with the patients and families and provided music that comforted, inspired and was pleasurable to listen to. I am looking forward to having them come to our unit as often as possible.

What a privilege it was to enjoy his unique talents in a group setting. It was my first time having this kind of experience and it did not disappoint. I left there feeling utterly delighted and deeply moved. I felt myself to be in the presence of a remarkable, kind and gentle soul, whose music washed over and through me, like a shamanic journey. It truly has to be experienced to be appreciated. I cannot recommend him enough.
