Jeremy and Fiona met 16 years ago and subsequently became trainers of TRE® (Tension/Trauma Release Exercises). They continued their fascination with the tremor mechanism process - not just for themselves, but also introducing it to an NGO that supports homeless people in Cape Town, South Africa, a profound 18-month project that offered them a large dose of humility and compassion. Subsequently, they have both cultivated international careers that are grounded, productive and bring them immense joy and satisfaction. In bringing Electric Heart to the world, they have curated an experience that they hope will bring you “Home” – the place that feels yummy, delicious, safe and nurturing. From here, we can move towards true and healthy expression, towards a life aligned, centred and in integrity. When we unblock our voice, we can communicate in “truth”; when we align to our body’s unique frequency, we can simply be, in “truth”.
Anyone wanting to increase their enjoyment of life, who is stressed, uncomfortable with their voice or feels “not good enough” when they sing; anyone who feels unable to communicate effectively in work, family, relationships, authority and/or the bedroom; anyone wanting to explore greater freedom in self expression; anyone in sales, consulting, facilitating or the arts; anyone who wants to be more boundaried and less bullied; anyone who wants to have healthier communication on all levels - with themselves, their loved ones and life itself… in short, most of us!
Fiona Soma has played and worked with many forms of somatics with a focus on sexuality and relationships. She encourages us to explore safe methods of movement and play as a way of better understanding ourselves in relation to the world. Through curiosity, we are led through simple yet healing processes that bring balance and alignment to all our bodily systems. More recently Fiona’s fascination with the vagus nerve has led her on an exploration and investigation of sound, frequency and vibration, and their profound restorative effects on communication, expression, listening, facial expression and the ability to socially engage in a healthy manner.

Jeremy de Tolly has played and worked with many genres and forms of sound - rock band “The Dirty Skirts”, Afrobeat electronica project “Original Swimming Party”, the ambient “Piano Nocturnes”, corporate music production, to a deepening of consciousness with Mantra. Most recently he has re-ignited his fascination with “how music moves us” - not just on the dance floor, but also on an internal visceral level in its ability to shift our state of being. A passion for Jeremy is the joy people find when they finally come home to their voice.
Jeremy is an internationally renowned pianist, singer, composer and performer, as well a TRE® (Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises) Global Trainer, consciousness coach, and mantra and sacred music facilitator. He has won a number of South African music awards, and his seminal ambient piano album Piano Noctures Vol 1 is used on healing workshops worldwide.
He’s spent time being both a rock star and a healer, and well knows the perils and joys of both. These days he strives to walk the middle path.
Jeremy has trained with a number of luminaries of the consciousness community, including Dr David Berceli, Caroline Myss, Eckhart Tolle, Dora Dias, Isaac Shapiro and Bill Petrie.
