Your Instructors:
  Rev. Sue Landon - Sue is the former Director and Pastor of the Institute for Spiritual Development in Washington, D.C., where she served as a staff teacher and then an ordained minister for more than 25 years.  Sue has taught metaphysics and psychic/intuitive development for more than 30 years, and her prior professional background was as a college instructor and human resources professional.  She is also the author of the book, "The Psychic Development Workbook."

  Alexandra Sutton-Pyle:  If you know Ally, you know you are working with one of God's Angels of healing.  While working as an EMT, Ally witnessed the spirit of a young child leave his body following a tragic accident at a parade.  The shock of that experience opened Ally up to a spiritual calling to heal others, and so she began her training.  15 years as an EMT and Nurse, plus training as a Reiki Master AND an Integrated Energy Therapy Master-Instructor developed her profound gifts.  Ally also discovered her abilities to see and feel intuitively, and uses that gift to inform her healing gifts. She is a certified "Fairyologist" through the Doreen Virtue program, and also regularly attends advanced trainings at Lily Dale. She is a sanctioned healer with the Institute for Spiritual Development in Oneonta, NY where she participates in the Sunday "healing chairs" once a month as a volunteer.  Working with Ally is a profound experience you won't soon forget.
