Lysa Churchley
Feeling age is no indicator of wisdom, I believe that I can offer insight into the alternative fields of healing, such as reiki, reflexology etc. To me, life experiences happen to us all, yet it is those of us that are open to different perspectives and judgements that can take something from the experience.

Reyna Joubert
Great love for sharing thoughts and knowledge from experience and extensive reading. In other words teaching – I seem born into it. An innate love for people and the environment which we share with all creatures. Also some academic background.

Helena Lee
Passion for Life, seeking Love and taking my Freedom has led me into a labyrinth of experiences, searching always for more, wanting to find MY truth. I was born in Australia and early in life discovered that creating beauty and expressing it was my gift that showed itself through art, fashion design, food design and teaching it to my world. I learned quickly that the fastest way to learn is to put into action what you want to learn. So entering the business world was the most natural way to go, first venture being from the fashion world and into food businesses. Much success and enthusiasm led me into motherhood, feeding and nurturing my children and many others who sought caring, love and Life. Stepping into the world of alternative studies has enriched my life simply by putting into action what allowed my character and personality to stretch and grow. Having travelled an exciting maze to this point, service to Self and my world is still my passion. Life is creative, there is only Love and nothing can Be without Freedom.

Verena Thompson
Verena has a background in advertising, branding, graphic design and travel. Her passion for these has taken her to many interesting countries and on many wonderful adventures around the world. She has won many top international awards for her design work, including Gold Loeries, and Clio Awards. For the past few years she has had the opportunity through her work to travel extensively to countries such as Botswana and Malawi. Her love for Wildlife and the African Bush, combined with the graphic design experience, led to working on some exciting projects designing Coffee Table Books. Verena has two daughters who are a constant source of inspiration.

Ruby de Vere
I was born in England in the year of the Fire Rooster. I began my quest for knowledge at 15. Found my life teacher at 28 and have worked intensively with him ever since. Career-wise, I enjoyed twenty years of fun and hard work in film and television before quitting to be of more value to my world, to explore my world, my creativity and my full potential. I now spend much time on writing, poetry and travelling the world, celebrating life, learning and growing on the way.
In Loving surrender
