The treasure of a life is a measure of love and respect
The way you live, the gifts that you give
In the fullness of time, it’s the only return you expect
“The Garden” – Neil Peart of Rush
“For a guy who’s on his own and busy teaching yoga and providing PTSD sufferers with relief, this song has more polish to it than most major-label productions. A bit of a DIY Ani DiFranco type, but with a Northwest 90s Pete Seeger fashion sense and not at all political or preachy, 13Hands is a one-man-band out to spread love and joy and peace. “Pepper Mary” encapsulates all that, but in a way that’s crushingly earnest. Not humorless. Not touchy feely. It’s sweet music with wonderful intentions, and in the vein of Sixpence None the Richer.”
- Devon Jackson – freelance music journalist, Entertainment Weekly
“Dalien’s innate and in-depth understanding of yoga and the mind, body and spirit is flat out inspiring, amazing and refreshing! He makes the process of healing and discovering oneself fun and effortless……and his songs and chants are absolutely beautiful!
- Gita Patel, MA, Licensed Therapist

“You’ll never become what you’re supposed to be… that which is integrity… Until you open up your heart and set it free – then you’ll become exactly what the world needs you to be” – from the song “The Messenger (Part 1)” – 13 HANDS
“I loved the class! I had an awesome time spending the weekend with people who find positive in every life experience. I felt so peaceful. The bowl ceremony helped me see what areas in my life need work. I had a break through! Thank you for that. Also, thank you for sharing your knowledge of sound therapy with us. I look forward to your sacred flute and drumming workshops.”
“Daniel’s Crystal Bowl Training weekend was a truly amazing experience! Daniel’s knowledge of the chakras and how the crystal bowl vibrations affect and balance the energies was beyond informative; he has a down-to-earth way of explaining and talking about the chakra system that I kept having these “Ah-ha” moments where my undertanding of how and what the sound vibrations balance just kept becoming more and more clear to me. As a therapist I feel I now have a powerful and beautiful tool in my toolbox to help my clients balance any blocks they may have by using the healing vibrations of the crystal bowls. And Daniel’s instruction and guidance in how to play the bowls is so loving and effortless that you feel as if you’ve been playing them for years; he makes it feel so easy and fun! I can’t wait for the next workshop!!
“The workshop went beyond just crystal bowl training since you presented a compassionate way of offering sound vibration for healing which I find is so much more important than treating the bowls as just a performance tool. Thanks to your manual, now I have a reference to technical information. I feel that the most I got out of the class is confidence in offering healing sound vibration using the crystal bowls to people. I felt very comfortable with your training and received some valuable intuitive guidance about myself from the chakra exploration.”
“The crystal bowl workshop provided me with valuable knowledge & hands on experience giving me the confidence to use the crystal bowl as a healing journey for myself & for my yoga students.”
“I found that the your Crystal Bowl class at Starseed was extraordinary. There were so many things I enjoyed, I will just ramble on about them. I enjoyed the meditation and yoga and the whole spiritual aspect of the class. You provided a lot of details that I enjoy. For instance, the A&P lesson on the ear and how we hear. You had a plan and followed it. You provided a great resource (the book) that we used in class. I have referenced it many times since. You add a great deal of personal experience to the teaching. That helps bring it alive and shows how you walk the walk. I would recommend you as an instructor for anything you teach!” I am ready for a class on the flute now!
