Annie Ridgway

Eric Lindstrom is a certified practitioner through SHA, a professional chef, a permaculturist and professional multi-instrumental musician since 1990. Having spent years on the road and playing in a variety of venues including the Fox Theatre in Atlanta and headlining the Georgia Theater in Athens, he currently prefers the serenity of yoga studios and wellness centers to guide individuals and groups into deep healing relaxation and soothing vibrational currents.

Eric holds a B.A. in Anthropology with a focus on The Power of Sound and Cultural Healing Practices from the University of Georgia. 

Eric has taught music lessons and led workshops over the years to individuals and groups. His SHA journey began in 2018 and he is honored to continue this path through teaching and supporting others. 

He feels deeply influenced and guided to the sound healing path by the vibrations and cultural immersion of his childhood time in Thailand, Bhutan, Nepal, Tibet and India. His time living abroad in Southeast Asia has also encouraged spiritual inquiry and development of a relationship with the Divine.

When he's not playing music and recording in his studio, Eric can be found in his garden, chasing after his toddler, hiking in the forest and making dinner for everyone. He lives in traditional Cherokee lands known as Western North Carolina with his wife, daughter, 6 hens and a cat.
