Xango Shola

Shola is dedicated to developing pathways of peace and understanding by nurturing community building through education, service and healing arts, in harmony with the wisdom of the earths elements and its kingdoms. In the past decade she has been traveling the world with her teacher, Maestro Manuel Rufino and the Golden Drum in an effort to weave together an intertribal global community that embraces the transcendental path of wisdom, love, truth and knowledge of the eternal soul. Shola is profoundly connected to the sacred healing herbs of the North and South, working in an alliance with these plants to aid in the purification of the mind, body and soul of those in need of healing, guidance and support.

She is an active member of the Golden Drum, a cultural community center for consciousness located in Brooklyn, New York. She is a devoted disciple of the Universal Initiatic College, learning the traditional healing ways of North & South Native spirituality, esoteric knowledge and sacred wisdom teachings. She is a member of Dream Seed Shamanic Sound Healing, a musical ensemble that tours the planet sharing transformative sound in an effort to heal, uplift and bridge cultures and communities together. She is the founder of Made in Prayer, a ceremonial lifestyle brand that creates traditional art and educational experiences that guide individuals to express the uniqueness of their own soul and heritage.
