“Hide and Seek — most of us choose hide.”
The late American poet T.C. Armstrong penned these words for and about Washuntara, a man who does not hide from life.
Washuntara is a Seeker; he is also a Performance Artist, Public Speaker, Singer, Songwriter, and multi- instrumentalist . His Label Passionworks Music has its home on Nashville’s famous Music Row.
A global citizen, Washuntara brings together a successful and thriving musical career with over three decades of service and leadership to the community. With an unforgettable voice and powerful songs, this vital Australian’s music, mirth and message has garnered a grassroots following across the world.
Off stage, his innate ability to “meet people where they are,” finds him at work in the world, a Buddhist Spiritual Teacher challenging people to wake up and reclaim the happiness in their lives. As co-founder of the international not-for-profit organization, “Circle of Men,” he has led the fight against social isolation and loneliness in men for over twenty years. In response to the need for better communication between men and women, he created “He/She/We” relationship workshops that offer a rare opportunity to discover more deeply how the genders tick. Despite all the seriousness in life, as Washuntara says, “We don’t really grow up until we’ve had our first good belly laugh at ourselves!”
The name “Washuntara” means Fire and Strength. It comes from the Buddhist tradition and is a testament to the grace and grit of a man whose life purpose is to “Co-create powerful and authentic lives that work.”
