Marc „ThunderSong“ Hagmaier is a trained Voice-, Breath- and Speechteacher, who also took singing Masterclasses with Peter Elkus in Amsterdam and Hamburg; his emotional-based singing method influenced his way of working with voice and expression very much. Ever since he was looking for a way to use voice as a „healing instrument“ and he began experimenting with different kinds of overtone chanting and other ways of using the voice in an unconventional way. In 2001 he did a Sound-Healers-Training with Tom Kenyon, which added some new techniques and more confidence to his work as a Soundhealer. Since 1998 he walks the shamanic path in the tradition of the Black Bear lineage. He integrated shamanic healing techniques and meditations into his life and his work, for which he is very grateful, because it brought more intensity and joy into both. He works in his own practice in Karlsruhe and gives individual healing sessions and workshops. Born 1968
