Dennis Notten,
M. A.

Dennis was born in the Netherlands and started his life as a classical musician. He studied at prestigious music schools in Europe, such as the Academy of Music “Hanns Eisler” in Berlin, and the University of Music and Performing Arts in Munich, where he finished his studies Summa Cum Laude in 2006. He played in world-class orchestras such as the Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Oslo Philharmonic, the Frankfurt Radio Symphony and many more, often as a principal Bassoonist, and worked with world-class conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Bernard Haitink, Sir Simon Rattle and Maris Janssons.

His work schedule allowed him to travel and learn from many different traditions and backgrounds all over the world, including countries such as Tibet, India, Nepal, Thailand, Cambodia, New Zealand, Egypt, Brazil and Peru. During those travels, he connected with a wide range of modalities including yoga, meditation, breath work, energy work and the power of sound. He is a certified Kundalini Yoga and Meditation teacher, a Reiki master, and is certified in several other transformational modalities. Journeys to South America connected him with the Indigenous practices of the Amazon Rainforest, especially the entheogenic use of Ayahuasca and the use of music in these rituals. Seeking personal transformation on a journey to Brazil in 2012, he encountered Padrinho Alfredo, the spiritual leader of the Santo Daime, who gave him the blessings to work with their sacrament, Ayahuasca.
