Kate Becker is a therapeutic perfumer, singer-songwriter and the owner/founder of Kate’s Magik -- a holistic aromatherapy company-- that creates 100% pure Reiki-charged essential oil blends. Her oils unite the power of intention with the beautiful aromas of the earth’s healing plants.

Growing up Kate experienced years of poor health that was clearly tied to her fragile emotions. After Kate’s spleen was removed at age seven, she was left with a weakened immune system for which western medicine was used of no avail. Finally, the discovery of alternative medicine and holistic approaches helped her discover the connection between mind and body.

Kate became a certified Reiki practitioner as a teenager which prompted her to tap into the restorative powers that lay within her. Later, while living in New York City, she advanced her studies in energy healing, meditation and the study of the chakras. At this time, Kate began to incorporate Intention-based work. It was here too, she was also able to fulfill her dream of becoming a singer/songwriter with the guidance of a vocal coach who used Inner Child work as part of her teachings. It was through these experiences of success-- as she moved through the challenges--that opened up the creation and teaching of her own methodologies which focus on finding our gifts within our wounds.

After moving to Southern Arizona in 2002, Kate developed an approach encompassing the combination of medicinal plant essences (essential oils), energy work (reiki), and the power of the mind (intention). These became the foundation for Kate's Magik (www.katesmagik.com).

Quynn Red Mountain is a shamanic practitioner, spiritual mentor and author of "A Tribe of One-Express your Shamanic Self" and "Accepting the Ashes- A Daughter's Look at PTSD". She is the ordained Animist Minister for Earth Web Media’s “Web of Life Animist Church” and the founder of “The Institute for the Shamanic Arts” (the spiritual education branch of EWM).

After a life-altering physical experience at the age of 27, Quynn could suddenly hear the Spirit World, and felt an age-old calling that is called by one culture “Shaman”, although her Spirit Guides call her OOlah (meaning One Who Balances). This new connection came in the form of visions, auditory messages, as well as many forms of synchronicity and spirit traveling. 20 years later, after helping many people connect their Mind, Spirit World and Soul, Quynn experienced a crisis of the Body. As she wove her way through a diagnosis of “Cancer” using her shamanic tools, she heard the Soul healing messages this “dis-ease” shared. As she found her way back to wellness, she also brought back circles, sessions and workshop series that can more effectively help others in crisis of mind, body and spirit.Learn more at www.shamanicanimism.com and www.quynn.com

Dr. Jo Ruddy is a Metaphysician and a Clinical Hypnotherapist. She is the founder of Counseling Concepts. In addition she also co-owns Transformational Concepts, Tucson’s only 100% holistic addiction recovery center.

Jo exclusively practices metaphysical approaches to healing. She specializes in the study of the unconscious mind where all emotions, memories, and addictive patterns are held. Her solution-focused orientation enhances her ability to hone in on core issues. With deep compassion, wisdom, and humor, her technique is the art of imparting the ability to guide individuals toward empowerment.

It has been through Jo’s own healing experience that she has come to understand the metaphysical aspects of physical illness and how to heal through the power of the unconscious. Furthermore, by understanding soul contracts, she has come to understand the source of illness. But most of all, by learning to truly live a life of self acceptance, self forgiveness, and ultimately self love, Jo has found a deeper ability to bring forth healing.

At 8-years-old, along with growing up in a volatile home, Jo was diagnosed with renal insufficiency due to an undiagnosed kidney infection. At the age of 26, she had her first kidney transplant. Three and a half years later, she lost the organ due to a virus she contracted from the donor and began a seven year battle for her life on dialysis. Jo experienced acute rejection of a second transplant in 1997, which doctors believed she would not survive. It is here she discovered how unresolved emotions are held in the body causing “dis-ease”. In addition she learned how to delve into a deeper sense of spirituality, rather than traditional psychology. In 1999, Jo received a third kidney transplant, which continues to have normal function today.

Dr. Jo Ruddy has had astonishing success helping persons who suffer from physical illness such as: Fibromyalgia, Cancer, Renal Insufficiency/failure, Parkinson's, Multiple Sclerosis, and other movement disorders. Many have found relief from symptoms. In some cases, patients have found complete remission.

Through metaphysical teaching & experiential practice, public speaking, and the class paradigm--she assists her students, so they can release chronic pain from the body, dissipate painful memories, change negative repetitive patterns, release fear, and thereby live a more authentic life.
