Lex Empress sings you through a process of healing the restless mind, soul and your body down to the cellular level. Gaining insights and creating practical transformation is the outcome of this magical vocal work.
I’m sitting cross-legged inside a yurt –traditional dwelling of the nomadic peoples of central Asia– near Cala Nova and everyone around me is crying.
