Meet Gonca

All through my life, I have been a curious child, asking questions. Therefore, I always want to learn more.

After having a BA in English teaching as a second language, I studied Performing Arts in Opera, had a BM from Istanbul Mimar Sinan State Conservatory. I was a professional opera singer until discovering the healing power of the human voice. In 2006, I studied the "Sound Healing" technique with Jonathan Goldman, Laraaji, Sarah Benson and Gregg Braden in Colorado. I  received my Sound Healer Certificate and became the first Turkish Voice & Sound Healing Therapist in Turkey.

Since 2002, I have been exercising different healing techniques, healing with Gemstones & Tuning forks, Crystal Bowls, Himalayan singing bowls, gongs, Reiki, Kundalini Reiki, Ra-Sheeba, Munay-Ki, The Rite of the Womb, Shamanic Healing, Shamballa MDH, etc. I believe the most powerful healing instrument is our own voice… 

After many years of studies, attending workshops and while giving sessions, I combined all the knowledge and transformed it into my own personal Voice & Sound Healing technique. In 2017 August, we moved from Istanbul to Eemnes with my husband Wilco and our daughter Şira.

She met with cacao for the first time in 2019 in the cacao ceremony she attended in the Netherlands upon the invitation she received in her meditation. Gonca was fascinated by the gentle and compassionate energy of cacao. Later, she gave Sacred Sound and Cacao Ceremonies in Turkey and Holland with her cacaoista friend Kübra Saatçıoglu with whom she completed her cacao plant medicine training and became a cacaoista in April 2021.

I created my own technique by bringing together what I have learned throughout my life. I am on my life path with the desire and excitement of introducing the magic of Healing Sounds and Cacao together which is sacred alchemy that resonates, transforms, and connects you with your inner self, power, beautiful light, true essence.

 

As a sound explorer, still continue learning, giving face-to-face and online individual Shamanic Healing sessions, Sound Healing therapies, group workshops, retreats, trainings, lectures, voice & sound journeys, sacred sound and cacao ceremonies, concerts in the Netherlands and Turkey.
