homeabout helen fost contact

is a shamanic healer, hypnotherapist, and performer. She brings to the theatre a training with shaman Alberto Villoldo and Q'ero wisdom keepers in the Andes, teachings in altered and ecstatic states with shamans in the Amazon, nineteen years meditation training with Swiss mystic Manuel Schoch, and a background in dance, sound healing and Hua Gong.

She has been involved in collaborations and research in recent years with 'Arte e Movimento' in Italy; with director Vicos Nahmias in Greece, with 'Unstructured Light' in the UK, and with Enrique Pardo and 'Pantheatre' in France.

Temenos theatre was created out of a visionary journey with shamans in the rainforest in Peru. Its aim is to recreate through theatre an experience of the 'seeing' beyond everyday mind, which is the essence of the shamanic experience. To offer a glimpse through the gap between worlds.

Each performance is a dream-weaving, an initiation and a sacred prayer. It is a contemporary homage to the healing wisdom of medicine men and women of all times, and the mystic transmissions of every culture. It's final goal is to dissolve the boundaries between spiritual practice and entertainment, between actor and spectator, creator and consumer, between medicine and magic.
