Raphael Weisman was born IN Cape Town, South Africa in 1945 and moved to Israel at age 20. He lived on a kibbutz, served in the army, and received his BA in English Literature at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. While there, he was introduced to meditation and an Okinawan form of Karate. He moved to London in the 70s, where he studied Early fretted instrument making. On completion of the course, he and two other students were invited to set up a workshop beside the Early Music Center, building lutes and other Early instruments for customers from Europe and the UK. While in London he became involved with an Old Chinese guide and taught karate at his college. After 7 years in London, he and his wife, Lorna were invited by 33 Energies Inc. to move to the USA as part of a spiritual project. In 1983 he settled in the mountains of Northern New Mexico where he lived and created Harps of Lorien, building harps for harp therapy and children’s lyres for Waldorf School families.
He lives in Santa Fe and has trained others to carry on Harps of Lorien. He is a practitioner of Circuitry Alignment and HeartThread and is a HeartThread practitioner trainer. His heart’s desire is to teach people around the world how they can use HeartThread to heal the scars of war, violence and trauma. He founded the non-profit Healing The Scars to spread HeartThread around the world in association with Soul Support Systems. He organized the event Live As One, Honoring All Life, which was celebrated in Santa Fe and connected globally on 11/11/11, in which HeartThread and Blessings for the Waters were the central ceremonial aspects of celebrating Union. His other passion is Water and he created a group called the Santa Fe Water Awareness Group and founded the non-profit The Santa Fe Global Water Festival. He organizes ceremonies and events to bless the waters and raise awareness of Water issues and consciousness.
