Anthony Compagnone is co-founder of Blue Soul Earth. Guided by Spirit for as long as he can remember, he kept his most powerful healing gift as a spiritual trance medium at bay until the second half of his life. Today, he connects directly with the Spiritual Realm to serve others, relaying healing messages and guidance from Spirit Guides, Masters, Teachers and other Spiritual Beings to help people on their Soul’s Journey.
Raised as an Italian catholic, he is now passionate about breaking down the barriers between structured and traditional religious dogma and pure spirituality. Anthony and his twin soul strive to embrace all spiritual walks and beliefs as long as they are serving the highest possible good for humanity. It is not unusual to find them both buried in books on Buddhism, Wiccan, Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Shamanism all in the same week.
Anthony is also a certified Reiki practitioner, a long time Vinyasa yogi and often meditates in their mystical garden where Buddha, humming birds and their crystals & gemstones dominate the space. Anthony has a number of Martial Arts accreditations and specializes in Kung Fu and Chinese Kempo, where he is licensed to teach self-defense techniques. He is a Sifu in Dan Black Belt Chinese Kempo and Black Sash in Shippalgi Korean Kung Fu, a Master of Iron Palm Training, as well as a Martial Arts Specialist in Combat Sports, Physical Fitness and “Prana Yama” The Art of Breath Control”. Also a big fan of Qigong, he taps into some of its best practices to ground himself and stay centered before and after his spiritual work.
He is also the Editor of Culture & Language for We Blog the World. Anthony contributes to We Blog the World, Blue Soul Earth and Blue Soul Travel on spirituality, wellness, food and wine.
Passionate about linguistics, he speaks five languages: English, Spanish, French, Dutch and Italian. Well versed in semantics and cultural code switching, he is able to assist others on their paths so they can better integrate into new societies, whether that be for a trip or relocating to a new area.
For over 20 years, Anthony has been a bilingual speech and language pathologist and therapist who helps people with their speech and language needs in both New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area. He is the founder of Speech Synergy, a leading speech pathology and therapy consultancy that serves private clients in northern California. Anthony is a credited SLP-CCC through the American Speech & Hearing Association.
As part of his esteemed history and credentials as a language therapist and speech expert, Anthony contributed bilingual and bi-cultural linguistic/semantic data for Bilingual Children’s Enterprises in New York, where he served as an adviser for the release of Tipi Tom Tales, a documentary and series focused on children and language. He has also studied Turkish, German, Classical Latin Grammar and Literature and loves a great class of Cabernet Sauvignon over dinner.
