About Stephanie Wood
Stephanie is a sacred and therapeutic sound practitioner, a sound artist, educator and healing justice activist.

Others center in the weird and wonderful experimental world. Stephanie is a former composer and orchestrator for Guru Gayatri equinox & solstice events.

Pauline Oliveros is her “patron saint” of sonic awareness.
