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, I wandered into an energy yoga center to see if they could help with the pain I was having. Traditional physical therapy wasn’t helping.  They gave me a free class and a 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. After 9 years of practice, I moved on to learn other forms of energy healing. I became a Reiki master, 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.
