Kitty Dyke, Certified Angel Card Reader, Certified AromaTouch Technician, Reiki Practitioner and Ordained Minister
Essential oils were introduced into my life, and I learned and experienced the truly incredible and awesome benefits of these little beauties (that I like to call #plantmedicine) for the emotional and physical well-being of both myself and my family. I then became certified in the AromaTouch Technique. This is a 40 minute essential oil application that supports healthy autonomic function, is simple and intuitive and uses dōTERRA CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils for an unparalleled grounding experience. Earlier this year, I became certified as a Reiki Practitioner, I do Chakra Balancing with Essential Oils, and Guided Group Meditations. Having completed Doreen Virtue’s Certified Angel Card Reader Course in 1999, I began doing readings using her tools along with my own intuitive feeling, guidance and compassion, an energy comes through me with a message of positivity that is warm and encouraging. I feel like these messages shine a light on the answers your soul already knows for a truly healing.

Gail Chipman, LMT, Reiki Master, Life Coach, Intuitive Empath

Gail’s Intuitive ability and empathic gift continue to manifest and guide her throughout her life. Her connection to her own higher self, nature, animal spirits, angels, creativity and Divine synchronicity, have evolved her and brought her closer to her purpose. Whether she is giving a massage, Reiki, coaching or giving an Intuitive reading. Gail’s main objective is to assist the client to look for the power within. She assists the client in accomplishing this by guiding them to release whatever may be blocking them, while creating a safe space to manifest their wants and desires. Gail does this by tuning into her clients energy field. Her hope for the client is that they come away knowing more about themselves and their connection to the spirit world.

Sachin Hazen, Transformational Therapist, Hypnotherapist, Spiritual Counselor

"The most impactful period of my life was the five years I spent at Kripalu Ashram [1989-95].  I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to live in a spiritual community where personal growth and spiritual development were prioritized over all else.  We were very successful operating a large beautiful yoga and health center, hosting 300+ guests a night.  For a while we worked 6 and a half days a week; yet work stopped if there was an issue to be dealt with.  Love, insight, consciousness were our values.  We developed presence:  compassionate, loving, intelligent."
