Daniela Lanaia

Daniela is the vocalist / songwriter of Anima, a sound healer, and practitioner of healing arts. With a "crystalline voice" and "music that penetrates the heart", her music is an offering of love, enfolding the listener in a tender embrace of the Sacred.

Since childhood, she has been immersed in the creative and healing arts, and the magical/spiritual substance imbued within the Earth. She has a playful, wise spirit; a gentle yet strong nature and way in her work.

Spending much of her adult life in wild landscapes, sacred sites and with Nature, she has traveled and learned from indigenous cultures and healers in North and South America and the British Isles, learning and reawakening to ways of ancient wisdom and sacred relationship with Mother Earth.

Daniela works with sacred sound, ancient pathways and energetic healing and shares/teaches yoga, meditation, spiritual ecology, organic and biodynamic approaches to working with the land. She has a unique and sensitive awareness that is rooted in a loving relationship with the Earth and the stars.

Daniela has collaborated with Ali on many of Anima's albums and is currently working on a new album as well as series of guided meditations. In concert, she offers a sacred space of healing and deepening into the heart, and has performed along with Ali and independently at events throughout the UK, Europe and the Americas.

Daniela now resides in the the Scottish Highlands, where as well as music, she works closely with the land, growing a medicinal forest garden and relationship with the Earth where the spirit of the plants, mountains and waters are honoured as living beings and worked with to co-create a place of harmony and sacredness.

"Our voice is Creation and the expression of our soul..may each word and note that we sound be a sacred offering of love to the Divine. May we tread gently, with deep roots, upon our paths, in service to this sacred Earth.. For the waters, the mountains, the forests and rivers.. we are all the children of the Mother of life"

Daniela offers healing and one to one work, and travels regularly offering retreats and sound healing in the UK and abroad. For more information visit www.alunahealing.co.uk
