Veronica Salter Ph.d.
Maroghini is a master percussionist, author and vocalist, known for his inspired commitment to ritualistic drumming and transformation through music. He is the author of the book "Spiritual Drumming---Jamaica's African and Indian Musical Heritage".
Maroghini developed a love affair with the drum in early childhood. After completing studies at the Edna Manley College for the Visual and Performing Arts he travelled to Africa, the birthplace of his father, where he underwent extensive training in the esoteric art of drumming. He later pursued studies in Latin percussion in Europe and also spent years studying Indian Tabla drumming under masters from the Far East. He is a former lecturer at the Folkwang University Of The Arts (Folkwang Hochschule) in Essen, Germany and has also been a music teacher and drum circle leader for hundreds of children and adults at Windsor Mountain International in the USA for over 16 years.
A pioneer in the field of music and sound therapy, he has worked with sound energy as a healing methodology in traditional as well as modern settings. In 1980, he collaborated on a study with the Neurological and Poly Clinic of the University Hospital in Essen, Germany on the physiological effects of drumming.
Maroghini has a solid foundation in metaphysics in which he focused heavily on transcendental music. For more than thirty years he has been an advanced Initiate in an ancient Esoteric Order, of which his family has been a part since the 1930's. Additionally, he has taken part in countless ritualistic ceremonies throughout the world learning the mystical side of sound and music from many Traditional Healers, Shamans and Spiritual teachers.
He is the creator of Psycho Acoustic Sound Session, a metaphysical and scientific sound therapy technique utilizing drums, percussion instruments, sound effects and chanting to promote mental and physical relaxation plus profound mystical effects beyond the scope of modern science.
She is a trained RoHun therapist and Breathwork facilitator as well as a facilitator of the Personal Transformation Intensive Programme offered by the Wellness Institute.

Dr. Salter has worked for over 20 years with survivors of abuse (mostly women) and offers her skills to various NGOs. By drawing on her varied areas of expertise she encourages individuals to transform themselves from victims to empowered survivors.
