Evelyn Mulders owns and operates Holistic Tapestries Natural Care Center since 1996. The focus of the healing modalities are reflexology and energy kinesiology, and vibrational remedies. While working on clients in the clinic, Evelyn discovered that clients reached their goals faster and easier if they implemented vibrational remedies such as flower essences, gemstones or positive affirmations into their daily routine. Evelyn became the alchemist of Sound Essence vibrational remedies in 1999 using sound, herbs, and various other vibrations. She offers these to her client as homework for the vibrational shift that occurs in the therapy session. Evelyn created the Kinesiology College of Canada first starting with the 4-unit Touch for Health classes and, as the students wanted more information, she brought the intensive 60-unit Professional Kinesiology practice to Canada. As an active Energy Kinesiologist extremely involved in the international community of Professional Energy Kinesiologists, and with her passion for educating others Evelyn was inspired to write two published books, The Essence of Sound and Western Herbs for Eastern Meridians and Five Element Theory. She is also the author and developer of Whispering Herbs Healing Cards.
Catherine Landry spent her formative years in a small Canadian town perched on the magnetic granite of the Canadian Shield. Her summers were spent on the Great Lakes, hiking, biking and swimming in the rivers and forests of the mystical northern landscape, which cemented a deep spiritual connection to our natural environment. At the age of 50 she left her corporate career to embark on a journey to rediscover the wonder and magic inspired by those rock and tree filled landscapes of her youth. Her studies have included the ancient science of Ayurveda, blood and genetic typing, to astrology, numerology, starseeds, crystals, sacred geometry and more. During this time, she qualified as a Kundalini yoga instructor, Sat Nam Rasayan, and Crystal Shamanic practitioner, in addition to numerous single seminars, courses and meditation retreats. During these years she uncovered her magical connection to the Earth’s elements and frequencies, her psychic communication with dimensions beyond ours, and her intuitive “clairs,” of which clair-cognizance is the most finely tuned. All of this brought her to a visceral understanding of Soul and a clear, abiding attunement to her own Soul. Catherine maintains a private practice to guide others to the liberation of their own powerful Soul Light, through her uniquely-blended use of light, sound, and crystal frequencies, and shamanic techniques. She lives in Canada with her husband and seven children. She spends as much time as she can on the road, reveling in the inspiring landscapes of the world. An award-winning author, her works include The Way of the Simple Soul, The Way of the Lightkeeper, The Way of the Grace-Filled Heart, and a prompt journal called The Way of the Inner Path.

Trina Brunk: Trina’s music has been described by author and lecturer Marianne Williamson as having an etheric power and by others as inspirational, and in the words of one fan, “It’s not just music, it’s magic. It pushes me to be more, to live more, to love more, to feel more, to reach higher.” She writes songs that speak to the challenges as well as the ecstatic states that are part of being a spiritual being having a physical experience. A recent transplant to the Pacific Northwest, Trina grew up singing with her seven sisters in rural Missouri. She began writing songs in 2008 and began performing across the nation in 2010. In 2012 her collaboration Running Free with film composer Charlie Armour was nominated for an Indie Music Channel Best Female Soundtrack award, and she opened for Marianne Williamson in St Louis, Mo. She took a break from public performance in 2013 after releasing Songs of the Beloved, her eighth self-produced album, and began facilitating toning circle and music meditation groups. Her beautiful CD, Safe Passage, is published by Satiama.
