Fotis De Tao – Meditation Teacher
Hello, I am Fotis Tampas (De Tao). I am a certified meditation teacher. I am also a certified audio engineer and a music teacher for over a decade. My students have learned music production, guitar, and healing music from me. I also teach my students the importance of emotions while playing an instrument or producing music. In the past, I have participated in many music bands as a live performer and sound engineer. I enjoyed my life at the gigs. But, for me, music was always something more significant. It was always something more than frequencies and tributes to big bands.
At the age of fourteen, I started to compose my music. I share only a tiny part of my composed music with people. Most of my music has one listener (me) and one essential purpose. My music was an effort to release the vast negative energy accumulated inside my body. That energy came from the pressure that people around me pushed on me. A pressure to become someone who never can be. A force that I gave people the right to try on me. The bigger the pressure, the bigger the negativity inside me. The bigger the negativity, the bigger the desire to compose and perform extreme music.
A difficult childhood
I was a sensitive, kind, and even shy guy at that age. Consistently so low profile. Always so calm and peaceful. People were surprised when they discovered I was listening to this music. And not only that. They were amazed when they found that I also compose and perform such music. They wondered: “how was it possible for a peaceful child like me to compose such aggressive music?” The answer is simple. If I didn’t compose angry music, I would become angry myself.
When I composed and performed my original aggressive music, coming from the negative emotions inside me, I always found internal peace. Aggressive music was my medicine for the negativity of the world. This music helped me to release pressure. It also helped me to manage my emotions and prevent a substantial emotional explosion.
The joyful road towards mindfulness
Growing up and coming through various mistakes and bad decisions, I discovered something important. More than just releasing negative energy is required. At that moment, I found the Tao. In the beginning, it was difficult to follow its practices. But, one day, there was enlightenment! I discovered that Tao and music are two different languages that talk about the same thing. Energy!
My studies in audio engineering helped me to realize this similarity. I have instantly translated anything that Tao said into music with the help of audio engineering. I discovered that both energy and music are just vibrations. Then, I realized what I had done wrong all these years. I realized that I used only one part of the music, letting the most important part aside. Music always helped me to release negative energy, but Tao taught me that releasing energy is just one part of healing yourself. The most important part is to convert negative energy to positive. Then, a strange idea came to my mind.
A full-time meditator
I studied Tao on a full-time basis. My idea was to practice Tao and convert its techniques to music. This way, I can understand them more profoundly. The result was fantastic! I started to understand Tao deeper and deeper. At the same time, I began to produce more and more healing music, more and more powerful music! I started to change my emotional world deeper. It was the moment I decided to design an educational program for Tao based on music. I converted every Tao practice I knew into a music experience.
The result was mind-blowing. I started to grow emotionally very fast. And the most important? A program based on music is, of course, very entertaining. A program far from the kind of boring meditation techniques I practiced earlier.
How I became a meditation teacher
Having had a successful experience with this experiment, I found out that this technique might also be helpful to others. This technique may also help other people better understand the Tao more musically. Most people are familiar with music (even just as listeners). I tested this technique on people who enjoy music but have no music education. The result was also very encouraging. These people enjoyed short experiences of calmness, harmony, and excitement.
It was at the moment that I decided to work on this technique seriously. I decided to build an educational project with courses and guided meditations for this technique, an education program that can completely transform you from zero to a profound meditation practitioner. And the most important? It can happen most smoothly and entertainingly.
Now, I have considerable knowledge of this subject. This knowledge came from long research and lots of experiments. It also came from many studies in holistic medicines like Tao and Ayurveda and many years of experience in audio engineering and healing music teaching. Now, it is time to share this technique with you! Here is my gift to you. I hope you will appreciate it and help me create an emotionally balanced world for our children!
