Kailash performes in schools, universities, therapeutical institutions, conferences, festivals, private and in concert halls all over the world, guiding his audience on musical journeys to the inner source.

He has been recognized as a tribal brother and bridgemaker by indigenous people as well as a pioneer soundtherapist by medical practitioners and international doctors. Many therapists use Kailash Kokopelli's INNER WORLD MUSIC for its relaxing and healing qualities.

In this interview Kailash explains what the possibilities are and how we surmount certain challenges by understanding the language of the heart.

We are all related as a human family and if we are to survive as a species, we really need to wake up to this simple basic truth that we are all related to all living beings on this planet. That we are Guardians and just not children of the earth and we have a responsibility of care to preserve what lives within the biosphere and the need for mindfulness as to how we live and express ourselves.

As an extension of the earth we need to constantly remember that what we enjoy today has been lent to us by previous generations thus the imperative that we bequeath a healthy sustainable world onto our children and grandchildren is so important.

He tells how we can come back to a place of harmony and find within ourselves a place of reverence, which is through our heart. And our heart is the inner compass for our guidance.

Where as in todays world we’ve become so enmeshed in our mind, our schedules and daily survival mode that causes us to lose our focus - whilst on our hamster wheels of separation and from that which supports us is diminished and in most cases lost. When, if we take the time, and listen to our heart, this is the way to a direct connection to source. – the great mystery of life.

We are a rainbow nation of many colours and creeds, that we humans are guests here on the earth and here for a limited time being related to all biota we can step into the sacred circle of life and immerse ourselves into a unity consciousness of all beings.

It’s interconnection with all life.

Remember we are all students of life, even a master if they are true to themselves, will admit to being a student  … being present to deep listening.

We are in a time of imbalance and our planet is in transition through a major shift in energy and  awareness and to the awakened - a purification - for what we do to the earth we do to ourselves and to future generations as well.

We need to look into ourselves to re evaluate our values, our virtues the ethics of how we negotiate life.

Being thankful and being in gratitude, is a key to magnetising success into our existence and this abundance we can share with each other.

Through the door way of the heart we can also access the akashic records and tap into a greater knowing beyond time and space.

Reciprocity: Is another key to our survival, through co-operation and co-creation.

If we continue the mathematics of economics, or ecology as we are promulgating now, we inherently know where this will lead to, yet we still continue to do this, when we know we have to break this chain.

We have built a world today at a huge cost to nations and the earth itself.

We have self limiting belief systems and encage ourselves within this context of our own ignorance or unknowingness.

Acknowledging our ancestors – we have our lives today, that have been bequeathed to us from our forefathers and the birthings from countless mothers – we have them to thank for our very fortunate circumstances that we live in today  and we are taking this for granted – some would say abusing the privelegde through over indulgence, waste, abuse, drunkeness, debauchery.

However when we tune in to the magnifence of our bloodline, our linage – then comes the gratitude.

Sun ceremonies – the sun is full and rounded and gives out its light unconditionally and this is an invitation for us all to be able to express ourselves from our heart and let the light of who we are express its fullness.

The imperative is for us to listen to the first nation peoples, the wisdom keepers of the earth, those people who are immersed in earth energies, living among forests, mountains, along side rivers and streams and higher latitudes. Deeply embedded in the pulse of life, often barefooted.

To walk the path of beauty to witness the magnificence of nature – at the same to keep a pure heart to walk in reverence and to walk in gratitude.

Blue Pearl Mother Earth:
We here in Aotearoa are lving in one of the last 'Gardens of Eden' on our planet – Kailash's call to we NZers is to please preserve this living earth and all that is sacred and be responsible in taking true guardianship of what has been bequeathed to us.

The power of prayer too is emphasised – with a pure intention within a unified field – that 'miracles can happen.'

Listen to a very knowing man who from his youth has walked his talk and experienced a fascinating life well beyond the daily understanding of the Western mind.
