BIOGRAPHY

David Sholemson

Born and raised in West Hempstead, NY. I come from a musical family where at age 14, I picked up the guitar and began writing songs. I continued writing as well as playing music in bands throughout high school.  At age 17, I moved to Boston to attend Northeastern University, where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Social Psychology. I performed in New England and kept writing and performing my music, hoping to make a living from my lifelong passion. At age 27,  my attempt at a musical career was coming to an end.  A friend told me about a jazz booking agency that was looking for a new agent. I jumped at the chance and for 2 years, worked as a booking agent for jazz artists.  In 1979, the owner of the agency and I created a management division to manage, one of those artists, a young guitarist/composer by the name of Pat Metheny.  As of today, I am honored to still be managing Pat.

In December,  2005, after my second knee surgery, traditional physical therapy was not helping my recovery. One day, looking to heal the stiffness and pain in my knee, I wandered into an energy yoga center to see if they could help me. I was given a free class and a 30 minute healing and without thinking much, I joined for 3 months as a practitioner.  After practicing for 2 weeks and receiving energy healing,  I knew this was something I wanted to do for the rest of my life. After 3 months, my knee was pain free and range of motion went from 50%-100%.  My love of energy yoga and healing led me through many trainings and workshops before becoming a teacher and workshop trainer, under the tutelage of my teacher, Master healer and teacher, Chun Shim. After 9 years of practice, I moved on to learn other forms of energy healing. I became a Reiki master teacher, Tong Ren practitioner, studied with QiGong master Robert Peng and shaman, Sandra Ingerman.  I have spent years studying the teachings of Ram Dass and have integrated what I have learned into my own life and teachings, with the intention to help guide others toward a healthier and happier life.
