Welcome our newest staff member Tamara Coleman

Greetings Everyone!

I’m delighted to be joining the community here at Seattle Unity! My first day here was Wednesday the 13th and I’ve learned so much already and met so many kind people. Thanks to those of you whom I’ve gotten warm hugs and greetings from. I feel so welcomed! I’d like to share a little more about myself so you can all get to know a bit about me and what I bring to the community.

PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND & EXPERIENCE: Well, to start I want to say that I come into the position of Office Manager with the knowing that this is more than a job. I will treat it like home with personal care and personal touch. I have over 25 years of experience in a combination of trades which includes not just office administration, but marketing, banking, ESL teaching and real estate (front desk, sales, property management and commercial). Mind you this only includes the good jobs and not even all of them are on my resume cause it’d be too long (LOL!).  I have another resume with a list of my retail, and fast food jobs as well as a season running my own janitorial/house cleaning business, oh and that one time I was a nanny in Paris, France. Yeah, So many stories, so much history…I’ll save most it for another date and time, or my memoirs.

BUT WHO AM I, REALLY? Well, I was born and raised in Alaska and have lived in Bellevue and Seattle, WA, Tucson, AZ and Paris, France. Today I am an intuitive artist, working through the mediums of, vocal sound healing, music, dance and visual arts. I have come to this path after many years of running from this inevitable calling of artist and healer. I say that because for so long, I thought I could not be an artist and that I had to work super hard at a “normal job” and go to school and get a degree in something that would earn me a decent living so that I could eventually do the things that I enjoy. In fact most of the time I had a full time job, sometimes I had two or three jobs and I went to school with a goal of eventually becoming a biologist with ambitions of working in the CDC. I had a plan and a plan for that plan and so forth and so on.

In all of that time I finally discovered that I just couldn’t do it. Not only couldn’t but I didn’t want to do it. It was not me. I did not want to sit down in a classroom all day.  Even at work I’d be looking out the window wondering where everyone was running to and from during the day.  Through a series of events; leaving Alaska, moving to Bellevue, WA, getting married, then divorced (its long story)… I became aware of this magical thing called intuition. It had been working through me in my dreams for a while, but I did not realize how much I had been following this guidance. This gift was further stirred as I became affiliated with church and began realizing on a daily basis in my waking life, that I was being guided in a profound way. This guidance took me all the way to Paris, France where I lived for over 5 years. While living in France I was able to deprogram from all the things that kept me from allowing myself to be free enough to acknowledge this magick inside. It was there that I came to accept my calling to become a healer and approve MYSELF as an artist.

How did I come to be a “Vocal Sound Healer”? My story as a vocal sound healer began in a dream while I was living abroad in Paris, France. One night I was visited in dream time by three beings who taught me while I slept. Upon waking, I was amazed at the clarity and precision of the dream. I knew that it was real and it was something I was absolutely meant to do. I asked my spirit guides what I should do with this vision, feeling that I had no experience or training beyond the experiences in dream time, and what I heard and felt so deeply was that I should simply “Go and do it!” Since then I have been on a long road of personal growth, self realization and healing as well as practice and learning from others who have traveled the same healing and teaching path.

So, In January 2012 after returning home from France in 2011 and reintegrating into America culture and life, I set out on a cross country journey which I titled “The Journey of Remembrance”. The point of this journey was to be alone and get quiet and closer to my inner Goddess and remember the story that was written in my DNA of my abilities and my purpose here on this earth. I just had this idea that so many people speak about faith and trust but we don’t often actually allow ourselves to experience this “Profound Trust” that is so often discussed. The kind of trust and faith that moves mountains and makes miracles. I wanted to be divinely guided with really no plan as to what or how things would go on this journey. So with $140 and a little mini van which would be home and very little supplies I set out on a journey across the country.  My experience took me through the WA coast, Oregon, Northern California coast and finally the magical Tucson, AZ where I stayed for over a year and half. In this journey I learned so much about myself. I developed my skills as an intuitive and a healer and learned to trust my gifts more and more. It has not been an easy journey but looking back I can see that it was well worth the struggles and the effort to be where I am today.

Describing my work and what I do: The culmination of all these travels and work on the self and my experiences in life have birthed in me a desire and passion for helping others to develop their intuition to heal themselves body, mind and spirit through the power of their very own voice, “Vocal Alchemy”. My work is really focused on the intuitive self and getting the answers from within and not relying any sure and fast methods but learning to tap into our own intuitive KNOWING to access the vast resources we have within us. Indeed, everyone of us has a “Master Teacher” and it is inside our very own unique self if we are willing to listen.

AND, AND, AND… (said with excitement!) I am a singer. I love singing and creating music. I apply the same concepts of Vocal Alchemy for sound healing in the creation of my music. What I want to do with my songs and music is to use my voice to communicate with everything around me to transform and heal the stories, bodies, minds and spirits of the people and things around me. This is really my main work and I look forward to working with other great artists who share this same passion.

So, all that said (and I have so much more to share) I just want to say that I feel like I am in the right place. In fact, I KNOW I am in the right place. Being chosen to work with Seattle Unity was definitely no accident and I’m really looking forward to learning from all of you and sharing my unique gifts with the community.
