Sahffi Lynne is a medicine musician and vocal coach, offering their music, meditations, ceremonies, and teachings as medicine to illuminate our connection.
Sahffi’s channeled original music and spirit-inspired performances have taken her melodies around the world, from Peru to Zimbabwe. As a private vocal coach, Sahffi teaches those interested in deepening their relationship with their voice using their own “Vocal Ladder,” a method of singing in which she teaches her students to use their bodies as instruments to find their authentic expression. According to Sahffi, each ring of the Vocal Ladder aligns with one of the 7-main chakras in the body, so we also uncover and discover how singing can heal our emotional bodies as well.
Sahffi just released her music video for her single “Let the Healing Begin,” a song from her 2021 album, Pulse of Evolution. This acoustic folk single is both soft, yet grounding. The video itself depicts the use of art to invite the healing process with Sahffi herself writing and playing music, one person painting, and another dancing.
“Let the Healing Begin” makes the viewer and listener feel seen and safe. She’s open about how grief is acceptable, that sometimes the only way to heal and move on and to accept it and allow yourself to move on.
“While on a solo spiritual medicine retreat (called a “Dieta”) in Peru, this song came through me completely! I often hear music in the wind, the trees, or the babbling of a stream, yet I’ve never had a song come through in this way,” shares Sahffi on writing the song. “I woke up one morning with a voice telling me to get my pen and paper, I remember watching my hand as I was half asleep, it was writing on its own! Then I felt the strong sense to pick up my guitar, and as I read the words, the melody and chords just poured out of me. It was a message for me at this moment, I was quite lost in my life and this message filled me with such hope and love. I cried tears of gratitude and release! I learned later that when a song comes through you in a Dieta in this way, it is what’s known as an “icaro,” a medicine song, a song of healing for the community.”
