About Heather Golding

 

Heather GoldingI graduated from The Glasgow School of Art in 1991, with a First Class Honours Degree in Printed Textiles, and was awarded 'The Francis Newbury Medal' for the most innovative designer of the year.

 Following my love for colour I discovered Aura-Soma (Colour Therapy for the Soul) which has over the past 18 years taken me on an extraordinary journey into the healing gift of colour. Colour is indeed a language in itself, a universal language. Also through my music, singing in the 'sacred language of the heart', I have recieved and shared much healing. Recently I have recovered from a few years of Lymes desease. During this illness I lost the ability to read amongst other symptoms, including immense lethargy and weightloss. Through my art, which has become my medicine; colour, music and herbs, as well as some homeopathy, I have restructured my mind and am able to read again! My healing drawings I now refer to as 'Visual Medicine'...soul food.

In 2002 my daughter and I spent three months on the Big Island of Hawaii. Moved deeply by the island and experiences with wild spinner dolphins, I was introduced to the art of the sacred circle,Mandalas. My colour circles are a spontaneous art form, each one a visual prayer. 

 Since our first visit we have returned to Hawaii twice, which enhanced my work further. It was on our second journey in 2004 that I found my voice, or it found me! I have been singing ever since in performance aswell as one-to-one healing sessions combining colour with sound.

In 2008 I created my first CD 'Kutara'- in the language of Colour, accompanied by the beautiful sounds of the Harp played by Victoria Davies.

I spent 3 months living in Stanford, South Africa with Melissie Jolly- the creator of a healing system called 'Colour Mirrors'. Here I created a new collection of circles inspired by her work.

I am presently living in Farnham, Surrey, England - singing and performing regularly with a variety of musicians. Whilst also gathering together the pages of my Colour Book of Circles.
