Your Instructor: Herwig Maurer (a.k.a. Agent H)

Herwig Maurer (a.k.a. Agent H) was born and raised in Salzburg, Austria, the stomping grounds of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and is an alumni of Berklee College of Music where he majored in sound production & engineering. Co-founder of the critically acclaimed band, Mankind Liberation Front, he became a playable character in the PlayStation game Rocketbirds (which his band New World Revolution also provided tracks and original score for), and collaborated in the Academy Award-nominated audio design of the film Apocalypto.

Maurer’s work is influenced by over three decades immersed in a wide range of spiritual modalities. These include Western Mystery Schools, Earth-based indigenous religions, Systemic Constellation Work, NLP, and various other delicacies from the spiritual salad bar that Southern California embodies.

Besides his various music projects Herwig is currently continuing sound design on Amazon’s flagship series Reacher, and developing 7 Directions Radio, a label of ceremonial music and media, both geared to benefit indigenous elders and causes.

This kind of material and skill needs to be well TAUGHT. The instructors were excellent teachers and mentors. They are very passionate about the craft - and are extremely knowledgeable as well as experienced. But they also are very good at articulating the lessons and passing along that wisdom so we can learn... The course was an excellent mix of discussion as well as hands-on training.
