Spirit’s Bio

Name: Spirit

Spirit McIntyre

Pronouns: Spirit/They/Them

Spirit McIntyre is a Cellist, Vocalist, Lyricist, Wellness Advocate, Sound Healer, Reiki Practitioner, and Compassionate Facilitator — promoting empowerment and healing by any medium necessary.

Spirit believes in the power of breath, creating intention-based relationships, honoring lovability, being seen/seeing, and growing compassionately through tight places to find authentic connection.

Healing affirmations, meticulous storytelling, and metaphor saturate their lyrics. They use their voice and cello to seamlessly blend: Blues, Soul, Folk, Classical, Reggae and Middle Eastern sounds into an unforgettable musical landscape. Since the transitioning of their father, Paris McIntyre on January 16, 2017, Spirit has been exploring the divinity of grief.

Workshops:

Fiyah: Using our Voices to Ignite Freedom

Fiyah is an intentional healing space for Transgender, Genderqueer, Gender-Non-Conforming and Non-Binary Folks of color to explore their power through: sound, breath, movement, storytelling, collective wisdom and altar making. Together we will lay down some of the oppressive burdens that seek to silence us, erase our stories, and distance us from our bodies. We will engage in communal practices that help us all GET FREE! This is a POC ONLY space. During the workshop we will co-create a community altar celebrating our collective MAJICK, please bring any altar item that reminds you to be your best self!

Becoming Beloved Community: An Intentional Community Building Practice

Through listening and storytelling Trans, Genderqueer, Gender-Non-Conforming & Non-Binary folx will have space to practice how to be better community members for one another. This practice will touch on a variety of themes such as Identity, Health & Wellness, Dating, and More. One goal of BBC is to have participants feel more fully seen within our beloved community.
