Annemieke Harmonie (Bachelor of Education, Dip of Teaching, Dip of Shiatsu) was born and raised in Holland. She has learnt the harp since she was nine. From a young age she was asked to perform for people in rest homes, churches, in restaurants, schools etc.
She graduated as a primary school teacher and then traveled the world with her backpack and her Celtic Harp.
She visited many different cultures and was inspired by their customs and arts and music. It was a time full of learning, sharing and adventure. She performed world wide in castles, palaces, monasteries, museums, at wineries, on beach weddings, funerals, in churches, at festivals, for prime ministers, and recently for the governor general of NZ.
In 2010 Annemieke and her three children moved to Nelson, after traveling through New Zealand to find a good place to live and a bit warmer then Dunedin where they lived for 11 years….
They were warmly welcomed in Nelson, the markets enjoy the harp sounds of their busking, and many people came out of the wood works with either home made harps, or dreams of wanting to learn to play the harp since child hood.
The harp school has now grown to 25 members, and 7 of them are in the orchestra. The age group she teaches is very wide and 100 years old is not too old!
This is a reflection of Annemieke’s Evolve workshop in 2016;
Here I am preparing for our harp meditations, after a most powerful Saturday afternoon at Evolve in the Chapel, with around 75 people attending the meditation. The rain came pounding down on the roof in the middle of it, adding to the already very strong energy…the power of a group energy lifting their frequency is tremendous…
and a reminder for me that I want to continue to offer these meditations as a divine space and supportive community for all, to help speed up the process of the full integration of Light in our physical bodies.
