Originally from France, André expressed an interest in music at a young age, working as a soundman for theaters. In 1986, he began his healing journey when he moved to Montreal and received extensive training in hands-on energy healing techniques with renowned teacher Sharon Forrest. He went on to study with the internationally respected Tibetan Lama, Sogyal Rinpoche, author of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. Combining this background with a specialized focus in dolphin-assisted therapy, André began supporting terminally ill patients through their death process. In Hawaii in 1998, he studied with Terry Penney, a specialist in dolphin healing for autistic children. André went on to develop a technique using images and dolphin sounds to assist cancer-afflicted children and those with autism. Since then, André has received his most profound teachings through intensive work with shamans in Peru, Brazil and Hawaii. His most current project merges his vast life experience and his original musical compositions in the creation and production of a multi-media theatrical show intended to uplift and expand human consciousness.
