There was a time when expressive arts and healing arts were always woven as one. It was cherished by the community as transformational medicine for the well-being of all life. These two arts are indeed inseparable for my life. They have always been journeying with me hand in hand on my path of transformation and growth, as there is one purpose: to remember that our life is whole and never separate from nature.
Seshen is a professional vocalist, improviser and movement artist, as well as devoted practitioner of healing arts. She performs, teaches, and facilitates meditation and healing sessions internationally. Her practice is rooted in deep listening to nature through the physical body—to find its presence within our own being and expression. Originally from Japan, Seshen has lived in Europe, Bali, Hawaii, California, Canada, and Norway, which developed her eclectic practice.
Besides a master’s degree from the Norwegian Academy of Music in vocal improvisation (2020), Seshen is also educated in CranioSacral Biodynamics (2008/9 with Leonid Soboleff MD, Levels 1-4), Esalen massage (2008), and aromatherapy (2008 IFPA certification), among other healing modalities. In 2011 she received teacher certification in Soul Motion™, a conscious dance practice, and continues to study various somatic practices such as Feldenkrais, Alexander technique, Timani, and Body-Mind Centering. From 2017-19, she was on the guest faculty for the master program at Rudolf Steiner University College in Norway, teaching movement and group performance.
In 2021, Seshen returned to the Central Coast of California with her husband to the land and people she has always loved so deeply.
Returning to body. Returning to earth.
