If grunge and thrash metal could wear a costume of nylon strings, with sacred bell-stomp and tribal chant, if atmospheric black metal could have a passionate affair with flamenco and Arabic maqams, then we might soar to that constellation upon CelestiOwl’s wings.

In 2022, CelestiOwl released his 44th album for his 44th birthday, marking 27 years as a guitarist. With 4 Classical Guitar albums that can only be called spiritual invocations, CelestiOwl is deeply inspired by his shamanic journeys with plant medicines and his ceremonial magick as a professional Astrologer, Coach, and Mystery School Teacher at Divine Timing Coaching, linked below.

A hybrid of ritual theater, mystic poetry, shamanic invocation, and masterful classical guitar, CelestiOwl guides the listener into a prayer-formance, expanding listener’s Spirits, and opening Hearts.

At the tender age of 17, CelestiOwl collapsed both of his lungs, spontaneously...This fueled his passion for life, his desire to follow the healer's path, and to coach and guide clients. He lives by the mantras of Memento Mori—Remember Death, and Carpe Diem—Seize the Day. A traveler and pilgrim in 45 countries, VerDarLuz CelestiOwl has been guiding clients since 2006 as a Shamanic Astrologer, Lifestyle Design and Business Coach, Breathworker, Regression Therapist, and Sound Healer.


His marriage of sensitivity and flat-out power is seamless and distinguishes him from a bevy of his peers and contemporaries. Metanoia is the latest triumph in a lifelong musical journey for the talented guitarist and will certainly not be his last. If you value high-caliber musicianship, outside-the-box composition, a willingness to risk the listener’s wrath and a poetic sensibility, CelestiOwl’s music is for you.

"He’s reached a new peak with this work and one thing we can rest assured of with this artist is that when he says something, we should listen. Anything he writes and plays is well worth the time of serious music listeners who aspire for the form to be a little more than mere entertainment; they want it to be art.  
-Garth Thomas,   Hollywood Digest - full review

"Melody unreels from him as if is part of his breathing and the transitions from one passage to the next are fluid and seamless. He has a gift for construction and the unexpected touches of near dissonance, as if he is warping the song’s melody without disfiguring it.

What is the ShamaniSonic Oydssey? 

In addition to these prayerformances, CelestiOwl shares at yoga studios, healing centers, and festivals with the ShamaniSonic Odyssey. In this deep listening circle, participants are invited to lay down with their heads in the center of a circle and feel the vibration of the live classical guitar, stomping, and bells, followed by ambient electric guitar to soothe, integrate, and sail into the sea. Be transfixed. And be transformed by CelestiOwl’s transcendent quest into the heart of the cosmos on a vehicle made of star-light and unleashed passion.

CelestiOwl is available for wellness retreats, private house concerts, and festivals.
