My name is Gregg Chapman, also known as The Didgeridoo Man. I am an Australian, although I live in Lincoln in the UK with my British wife. My professional background has been in youth work, mental health and training in the charitable and public sectors. I have been playing the Didgeridoo since 2007 and since then my health has improved and I have become much more relaxed. Experiencing deep trances, meditational journeys and improved health has given me insight into why the Didgeridoo holds importance to the spirituality and culture of the native Aboriginals of Australia.
I have been interested in alternative therapies from a very young age and was a Reiki Master by the age of 22. I believe that we all have the ability to live a fulfilling life through becoming aware of our thoughts, words and actions and this is what I help facilitate my clients to discover. I am very interested in the power of thought and I am a qualified Neuro Linguistic Programming Practitioner. I also train Students and Teachers in Schools, Universities and Colleges the art of meditation and stress management. I also see clients for private didgeridoo sound therapy sessions, neuro linguistic programming and energy pyschology.
I am also a musician and have played in a band called the The Naira Project, where I played the Didgeridoo, vocals, keyboard and accordion. I also like to play the Didgeridoo with friends and anyone who is interested in this fascinating and spiritual instrument.
Didgeridoo Sound Therapy came to me in early 2009 when a friend asked me to play on her shoulder that had been giving her long term pain. She reported a few days later that she could raise her arm for the first time above her shoulder in months. It has developed since there and I now run regular meditation groups with the didgeridoo, work in schools, see clients for personal sessions and teach people to play the didgeridoo.
I am Australian born, although I do not profess to have direct connection to Aboriginal culture and spirituality, I do however have deep appreciation for their spiritual and cultural traditions.
The Didgeridoo is an important part of my life although second in line to my lovely wife. It gives me a huge amount of happiness and a sense of purpose to share the therapeutic and healing benefits of the Didgeridoo.
