Meet Iris

This is Iris

Initiator of Butterfly Circles, an organization specialized in spiritual awareness-expanding workshops at home and abroad.

Iris has a practice in Asbeek where she receives clients daily to give them tailor-made therapy.
She is also a Spiritual Ceremonial Leader in Native American Healing Arts.

After her studies KASK photography & film, Iris Pattyn worked for many years as a sound engineer on various film sets, including those of 'Karakter', the Oscar winning Dutch film by Mike Van Diem.

As a result of that experience, she became increasingly engrossed in the different levels and timbres of the human voice.

It became her passion to learn to listen beyond the audible.

To this end she studied the rituals of earthbound peoples and took part in various ceremonies which included song and dance. The grandmothers asked her regularly to come over to exchange and from them shelearned different forms of rituals and feminine healing methods.  She has stayed in Native American communities in the US as well as in South America. She found the voices of these peoples to be harmonious and pure, and their overtones  much more audible in their sacred songs and spoken language than in other cultures.

Based on 20 years of research into the 'secret knowledge' and applicable techniques of a whole range of philosophical trends (of shamans, but also of monks, dance and voice healers, etc.) she has been supporting people in their search for their own harmony for a long time. A Soundhealer and Priestess,  it is her passion to help and support people on their life path, with her very 'grounded' approach.
