YIN SONG is a collective creation by Christopher Mapstone and Iselin Amanda Stoylen
Mapstone is a Sonic Traveller. Weaving Sound and Ceremony through the power of music.
A song carrier, a musical mystic, a weaver of melody and rhythm. Chris Mapstone has spent a decade travelling in multi dimensional musical realms. He has shared his heart and music around the world at festivals, events, retreats, teepee’s, fires and ceremonies. His music continues to grow and flourish as he follows the music and the muse to where it is needed. Having shared stages and space with other visionary artists such as Murray Kyle, Darpan, and Lulu and Mischka. Chris’s musical path is one of healing and service; It is a deep dive into the mystery, wrapped in a warm blanket of love and grace.
Combining Voice, Yidaki (didgeridoo), Percussion, Guitar and Flutes, Mapstone weaves an uplifting and enchanting sound. The lyrics and music are transformational; connecting the body and spirit in a multi dimensional sonic journey of the heart; for the heart and from the heart.
His sound journeys are soundscapes of the Mystics. Woven from inspiration of the earth and mysteries of the soul.
As an experienced yoga and meditation teacher, herbalist and women’s health educator, Iselin is passionate about assisting people in reconnecting to their bodies innate wisdom and the natural state of health and well-being that resides within.
She works intimately with the medicine of cacao through ritual and ceremony, and as a tool for deepening the mind/body/spirit connection.
Iselin is originally from Norway, but has spent the last 6 years living in Byron Bay in Australia, and today she teaches classes, workshops and retreats internationally.

Fraser Rishi Mcdonald 

Fraser Rishi grew up in Toronto, Canada, working for many years as a youth worker, writer/performing artist, and teacher.

He has sat with people from all walks of life and witnessed a transformational power enliven these encounters. Inspired by the joy inherent in helping others discover their true nature and curious to deepen his own discovery, he has studied with masters in Hatha yoga, Bhakti yoga, Self-inquiry, and Tai Chi/Qi Gong traditions. This brought him to the feet of his beloved teacher, Sri Mooji, from whom he received the name Rishi. These practices have helped him heal from two serious accidents, manage chronic pain, and most importantly, they have revealed a space of profound peace within his own heart.

He also offers Bio-Dynamic Cranial Sacral Therapy, which can be profoundly helpful for relaxing and nourishing the nervous system, as well as bringing health to the physical, emotional, mental, and energetic bodies. In addition to being an Ontario certified teacher and award winning writer and performance artist, he has completed a mindfulness certification with University of Toronto, 180 hour AYT, 200 hour RYT.

Dana Salahub

Long before Dana discovered spiritual music, listening to music felt like a spiritual experience. Beautiful songs compelled her to clear her mind, open her heart, and tune in to the deepest level of her being. At a young age, she discovered a presence in music that inspired her to be as present as possible with each subtlety of sound and nuance of feeling. Then, almost a decade ago, she started singing Kirtan. Soon she realized: There is some power in the mantras that can’t be defined, and when that power is mixed with music, it brings everything to silence and enlivens the heart.  Now that same intimacy and presence she experienced while listening to music in solitude are felt in community, in Kirtan, singing with others, and this is a beautiful thing.
