She currently specializes in music therapy at bedside in medical settings, weaving the power of music with breath, movement and meditation to facilitate pain reduction, emotional balance, relaxation and wellness. Sparrow studied yoga and mantra in India, obtaining her 500hr yoga teaching certificate in Akhanda Yoga through Yogrishi Vishvketu as well as recording two mantra/kirtan albums with local traditional musicians.

Erin began her journey into health and healing 27 years ago at the University of Calgary. It was during her degree that she had the great fortune to receive an in depth study of human anatomy and physiology and received a BSC in Kinesiology. In her studies, she was mesmerized by the intelligence of the human body and mind, and how the entire system was coordinated together like a giant symphony. Her curiosity about this intelligence led her to study Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture in Calgary, Canada. It was here that she learned the name of this intelligence that was coordinating all the biological rhythms - Qi or Life Force energy. In her years working with the meridian system and Qi, she was able to understand that she was working with vibration. This is where she found her way to the Acutonics® program. Erin became a certified Acutonics® teacher in 2013.
Her curiosity did not stop there. She had devoted her life’s work into understanding a more esoteric meridian system, the 8 Extraordinary Vessels. Erin could see and feel that these 8 vessels behave very differently from the 12 main meridians. To get a better understanding of her experience with the 8 Extraordinary Vessels, she enrolled at the Quantum University PhD program in Integrative Medicine. It was here that she was able to better understand the strange behaviour of these vessels and develop a quantum lens to deepen her experience with the 8 Extraordinary Vessels. Presently Erin resides in Calgary, Canada. She has a part time clinical practice and teaches part time at the Calgary College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. Beginning with her studies of the physical body to the quantum field of the 8 Extraordinary Vessels, Erin has deepened her understanding of the multidimensionality of the human bio-spiritual-ecological system. She has made it her life’s work to point people in the direction of their Soul and the remembrance of their multidimensional nature.
Cesar's profound journey has led him to encounter the wisdom of indigenous tribes through transformative pilgrimages in Mexico with the "Wirarikas." He immersed himself in their ancient ways within deserts, jungles, and communities, reverently embracing their sacredness. In Canada, First Nations warmly welcomed him, imparting their sacred teachings as he engaged with the medicine wheel, Native ceremonies, drum journeys, and vision quests. A pinnacle of honour was reached when the Cree bestowed upon him the privilege of dancing at the Piyisew Sundance. These immersive experiences now empower Cesar to infuse his ceremonies with the garnered wisdom, an honor he ardently shares, rekindling the sanctity of this age-old culture for all to embrace.
