ECSTATIC DANCE CELEBRATION with DJ “Nah Mean?” and Melissa Wu
Florian is a passionate entrepreneur, holistic wellness enthusiast and Kundalini Yoga teacher. He is an energy hunter who is fascinated by the subtle power of sound and vibration. As an avid gong player, Florian has studied under his teachers Harijiwan and Don Conreaux and has traveled to visit some of the most respected gong builders in Europe and the US. Florian has been teaching meditation and gong classes at Rama NYC since the studio opened in 2017 and his greatest joy is sharing his passion with others.
Growing up in Hong Kong with Roman Catholicism and Buddhism, prayers, hymns, chants and other sacred sounds and instruments have always been in Melissa’s life since a young age as a conduit for healing and connection with the divine. In 2010, in the journey to navigate her chronic depression, anxiety and PTSD while building her aspiring professional career as a performer, Melissa found binaural beats/solfeggio frequencies and begin to learn about the use of frequencies and how it can deepen her meditation practice in the condition she was in. The investigation and experimentation with sound and energy eventually brought her to Kundalini Yoga and Gong in 2019. She became a certified teacher in 2020 and continued her studies through extensive Gong training from avid Gong collector/enthusiast and Kundalini Yoga teacher trainer Mandeep Khalsa from Kundalini Sanctuary (then Kundalini Kollective) and Dr. Gurucharan Singh Khalsa in during her time in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2021. She has since then continue to investigate and experiment with Gong at RA MA New York in her regular weekly classes as well as holding Gong and Sound healing workshop extensively since becoming a regular teacher there in 2022, offering sound healing experience and actively presenting other sound practicitioners and facilitators in the space through her art and healing collaborative WU WU.

Nicholas Hockley, known as DJ Nah Mean?, is a multifaceted artist with a deep passion for creating transformative experiences through sound. As a Yogi, DJ/Music Producer, Healing Artist, and event creator, he is devoted to forging connections through the power of sound and music, fostering new pathways for being.
With over a decade of experience in DJing and electronic music production, his musical journey has taken him around the globe in destinations such as Costa Rica, Mexico, and the United States. His performances are a prominent feature at intentional gatherings, ecstatic dances, and electronic music events, where he weaves intricate sonic tapestries of mystical tribal and transformative dance music that resonate with the soul.
In recent years, Nicholas has embarked on a new path as a healing artist, specializing in the transformative properties of sound. He guides groups through immersive gong baths, sound baths, and sound immersions, drawing on certifications from the International Sound Healing Academy and the Sage Sound Healing Academy, while also studying under the guidance of Gongmaster Don Conreaux.
Through his artistry and dedication, he opens gateways for people to explore new dimensions of their Self, fostering personal and collective growth through the alchemy of sound and healing.
Having worked for years as a successful Creative Director, Scott sought something with a deeper resonance. Liking the tone of sound baths, he decided to attend one at Sage Academy of Sound in Woodstock, NY, on a whim. That experience was his big bang and first awakened him to the power of Sound. With a deeper understanding of what good vibes meant, he felt a strong need to go deeper and, in 2015, decided to train with Sage. Since then, he’s been working with them regularly to spread sonal sunshine. He is now part of the Sage Sound Sangha and one of their senior teachers.
In addition to bathing in Sound, he recently added bathing in Forests to his offerings. Practicing as a Forest Therapy Guide has allowed him to work with new kinds of vibrational medicine and wisdom – that of nature. Much like Sound, it enables him to create more opportunities for people to meet themselves at the gate of their own healing paths with the support of something greater.
He divides his time between upstate and Brooklyn.
