A keeper of the stars and a weaver of magic, Ash works with individuals and groups, bringing together Energy Healing, Sound Healing, Cacao Ceremonies and a background as a Social Worker. She supports people to heal, find their light, lift the soul and stay grounded. This life has guided Ash on a path of healing and learning, to step into her light and support others to do the same. At the age of 11, she was diagnosed with Leukaemia, in addition to fracturing her spine. Being close to death and spending years in hospital has created a unique perspective of the world and a deep ability to connect through feeling. Ash = The Phoenix rising from the ashes. Representation of death and rebirth. Bell = Sound. Rituals. Used to call in prayer. Bringing communities together. Peace. Freedom. Ash Bell

I am Dr. Gilda M. Jefferson — An Alkhemist!
Answering the call to learn indigenous ways of healing, I am honored to have been taught by Mayan, African, as well as Latin and Native American elders.
My heart overflows with gratitude to the medicine women and men who have welcomed me with open arms, hearts, and homes. Those who have poured in to me unselfishly, where language and cultural differences were embraced not viewed as stumbling block.

My memory of creative expression expands beyond this lifetime. A practice of inner dialogues with no language, a channeling of seasons from a cosmos only remembered in the heart, a landscape of feelings that transcend time itself.
I have multiple decades of experience educating adults in integrating and adoption of practices and behaviors that will assist in the self-awareness, ritual and spiritual wellness areas of holistic healing. I am in active Indigenous and Afro-Caribbean spiritual practices with Mentors and come from an unbroken line of Curanderas. My guidance and channeling comes rooted in tradition, permission, consent and sacred alliances.
Vesna invites us to go beyond the cognitive limitations of our mind by through Cacao and sound and the body as a portal to access the wisdom that resides within the rich unchartered terrain of our inner world.
Vesna aims to create environments which are safe and nurturing and that allow us to meet ourselves wherever we are at on our journey. Vesna believes that it is from this space of deep connection and reverence that we have the opportunity to explore, heal, evolve and rediscover our relationship with our body-mind-essence so that we may come into sacred union with all that we innately are.
Vesna draws on her own journey through intergenerational and lived experiences of trauma with an aim to inspire and empower others to reclaim their innate wisdom and realise their true potential. Vesna continues to walk alongside her teachers, ancestors and guides on her own spiral journey navigating the intricate, multi-faceted magnificence that is this human experience.
After experiencing birth-related trauma in 2016, Vesna embarked on a deep and personal journey inward, wading through intergenerational trauma and her own experiences of lived trauma. Navigating feelings of shame, anger and grief, Vesna discovered many healing modalities that have supported her and continue to support her on her path. Vesna is now being called to walk beside others who choose to walk this path and share the medicine that has been so lovingly shared with her.
As a Wellness Coach, I create a supportive environment that enables you to articulate and achieve your goals. Throughout my education and practice, I have been exposed to the most cutting-edge dietary theories and studied highly effective coaching techniques to help you find the right balance that works best for you.
Most approaches to a balanced lifestyle begin with the right attitude to create change. Instead of creating lists of restrictions and good and bad habits and patterns, I coach my clients to explore basic improvements and implement gradual changes during our work together. As these pieces accumulate, my clients find these changes collectively creating a much larger impact than they originally anticipated. We work on what they want to improve within the circumstances of their unique situation.
My name is Taryn and I am a the co founder of Pure Little Hearts.
As an empowerment coach, I am passionate about guiding people back to their higher self, so they can cultivate unwavering self belief and unapologetically own their truth.
I have seen my beautiful clients of all ages get the most phenomenal results when I use woven modalities to help them ignite radical self love.
The ripple effect that this has on every area of their life needs to be seen to be believed. It is insanely amazing!!
I hold a safe and nurturing space for my clients, whilst using incredibly powerful techniques that will help them fast track any result they want, so they finally connect to their beautiful heart space and live in total alignment, consciously creating the life of their dreams.
It is my soul’s purpose to serve, coach and empower people, so they can illuminate their own path back to their true center and live the most joyful and fulfilled life.

I started a journey to learn about healing when I was 9 years old. My mom had just been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and I wanted to make her better. I have since learned that healing is much more than I ever could have imagined. Healing includes all of you. Your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being, and all the relationships we have or lack of, with the world around us. I have been led to learn, experience, and bring my experiences to support and work with others to facilitate their journey of wellbeing as they so choose.
I am a Licensed Massage Therapist, Reiki Master, Cacao Ceremony Facilitator, and trained in playing Tibetan Singing Bowls.
I come from the Menominee first nation with ties to Mexico and cacao through family ties. A mother, knitter, artist, student I approach my relationship to cacao as a friend and teacher.
I come to the circle weaving my ancestors, my love, and the spirit of transformation that keeps teaching me through grandmother spider.
Sit with me and the grandmothers as we talk cacao.
