Copperwoman

"Open your heart, Let your voice come through, Just the way you do it, Nothing to compare to." Copperwoman has been gifted in this lifetime to "catch" songs for us—for people who want to sing together to raise the collective vibration in a prayerful way, and for those who might be afraid to sing. She offers a safe space in which to find your voice and express that which lives within and wants to come out vocally.

Copperwoman brings people together to sing in gatherings called "CircleSong" from Santa Cruz to Arcata and has been an integral part of the ritual backbone at the thrice annual Women's Herbal Symposium in Laytonville. She has several CDs of original "singable" tunes. Having visited Peru seven times, Copperwoman carries an energy of pachamama and a certain depth of ancient connected earth culture. Let's sing! copperwoman.com

Kelly Dearie

Hi, I'm Kelly Dearie.
Through divine inspiration, I have invented hundreds of recipes and discovered creative ways to make delicious, healing foods that make your body hum with joy. I want to share my passion with you!

I fell in love with raw, fermented and nutrient-dense foods as I supported my husband's natural healing from two serious diseases (deemed incurable by medical doctors). Charlie canceled a life-threatening surgery and fully recovered.

That was 10 years ago. Since then, I learned as much as I could about the healing power of foods and we've been mostly doctor and pharmaceutical free ever since. (It's no fun paying for medical insurance when you never use it!)

I can't tell you how empowering it feels to have the courage, wisdom and ability to keep my body healthy in a way that is safe and natural- without any needles, drugs or antibiotics. All my hormonal, mental and immune issues are resolved.  I rarely get sick and when I do, it doesn't stop me from taking care of business as usual. I am so grateful that my family has received the blessing of good health and I want to share my secrets with you!  Kellydearie.com

Marti Foster

As a young child, Marti was afflicted with scoliosis, a lateral curvature of the spine. Hence, yoga was prescribed to heal a possibly debilitating condition. Over many years of dedication to her own yoga practice, the condition was completely cured. Through this experience she saw how transformational yoga can be for the Physical Self. In 1994 she created her company, The Yoga Solution. Marti teaches Vinyasa Yoga, a form in which a sequence of asanas are linked to complement one another resembling a choreographed dance. Different than other yoga professionals, this instructor offers a unique artistic experience. Each class is individually choreographed and set to music and is a one of a kind experience. Matti’s interpretation of Hatha yoga is an integration of body, mind and spirit.
