SUM we are blessed that many of our members are speakers and
musicians of high vibrational love.
Janice Kalec has been a member of SUM for decades. Her
commitment to living from the inside out is inspiring. As a
Chiropractic Doctor she brings that deep level of consciousness
to her patients and practice.
Kostelas founded Flutes of the World Music to express her love of
world cultures through the voices of her 100-piece
international collection. She has released six solo compact discs
of original music. Additionally, Maria has composed several
commissioned works, including a CD for the World Presidents
Organization Mind/Body Health Conference and recorded a meditation
CD with Shirley MacLaine
into a musical family, Maria became enchanted with the sound of
the flute at age 9. Her first instrument was a silver flute she
mastered while preparing for a career in classical music. During
college, under the tutelage of master teachers Jean Pierre Rampal
and James Galway, Maria began to form her own identity as an
up in a multi-cultural family inspired me to begin composing and
writing music to express the beauty of the world’s indigenous
cultures. This fed my creative soul, and in my search to express
myself I discovered the joy of sharing the healing spirit of world
music,” says Maria.
her signature style – a blend of classical and world influences,
Maria’s music was soon heralded by renowned authors and
celebrities, including Shirley MacLaine and Judith Orloff, MD for
its ability to help heal body, mind and spirit.
also found a gift for composing personal healing songs when she
ministered to a cousin who was severely injured in a car accident.
This along with her shamanic training shifted her composing and
performing style enabling her to provide a deeper experience for
her listeners and clients.
Borysenko, Ph.D., renowned author and co-founder of the Harvard
University Mind/Body Clinic says, “Maria Kostelas has an
astonishing gift. She can catch the mood of an audience in
her music, carrying them to their hearts on a stream of sound.
“Maria’s music is evocative and thrilling. I could have
listened all day as the voice of her flute called me home to
spirit. It was a privilege working with her.”
addition to sharing her musical performances around the globe in
concerts, at conferences, universities, spas, hospitals, museums,
and retreat centers, Maria presents lectures and workshops that
train others to play native flutes. As guest artist for the Los
Angeles Philharmonic Education Association, she teaches native
flute workshops to adults and children. She was also one of 24
artists awarded an educational grant from the State of California
to teach children about native music and culture. She has been
designated as an Artist in Residence three years running from the
California Arts Council. Maria conducts therapeutic music sessions
for individuals and corporate clients as well.
