  • Performer Highlight: Anne Schaefer

    Vancouver Island Pagan Pride welcomes Anne Schaefer!

    Anne is a musician, facilitator, mystic and seeker based in Victoria, BC on Canada’s beautiful West Coast.

    Born into a family of musicians in Saskatchewan, music has been Anne’s first and most natural language from the beginning. She has studied and explored many instruments, genres of music, combinations of players and is always astonished at the never ending gifts and beauty that music in all its’ forms, offers us. Anne’s experience of the world is that all things are energy, energy is vibration, vibration is frequency, frequency is sound and sound is Music. Everything is Music!!!

    Since Music is that which we are, we are always empowered, healed, connected and enlivened by it, whether as a listener, creator, facilitator or performer. Anne has had the honour of facilitating and performing on three continents and is grateful beyond words for the infinite blessings of Music in her life. She is also grateful beyond words for the deep privilege of living and working in beautiful Victoria, B.C. on territories of the Songhees and Lekwungen speaking first peoples.
