Lionel Lauch is a Gunditjamara (Kirrae Whurrong/Djab Whurrong) Bundjalung man residing on Boon Wurrung Country on the Mornington Peninsula.
Lionel is a skilled and practiced healer, versed in the ancient Aboriginal custom of healing. He uses possibly the world’s oldest known musical instrument, the Yidaki (or didgeridoo), developed by the Yolngu people of Eastern Arnhem land Australia who hold the Songline of this ancient instrument.
Traditionally played as an accompaniment to ceremonial dancing and singing and for solo or recreational purposes, the Yidaki is a wind instrument that produces low frequency sound that we can hear and actual vibrations that we can feel. Due to its powerful sound vibrations, the Yidaki can help listeners enter deep states of relaxation or trance, opening the way for remarkable sound healing that can offer great therapeutic benefits.
During Lionel’s sessions you are immersed in the rhythmic primal sounds of the Yidaki as it moves through your muscles and organs, grounding you in the land and moment as the frequencies and vibrations flow through your body, connecting you to the earth and creating a space for powerful healing to take place.
