4/Laura Lee, w/Digging Family Roots

Laura is a professional geneologist of over 45 years. Her intuitive work comes to life as she enters someone's lineage, a strong pull she has towards having everyone understand the people (ancestors) that stand behind us, that have lead us to where we are and continue to support us through our daily lives.  It is my goal to assist others in understanding where they come from because:  "Life is lived forwards, but understood backwards."


5/Dale Capristo

Dale’s professional career at SUNY College at Oneonta focused on developing programs , courses and workshops for student’s  life development.  After 34 years Dale retired and began focusing on her spiritual development. She became a Reiki Master, a certified Shamanic Practitioner and explored courses in energy healing. 

Curiosity led to the study of the mystery—Who is Mary Magdalene—today, in our time. How can we serve the Divine Feminine Magdalena Energies.  Serving others is a deep passion and Dale is committed to sharing the exquisite Magdalena energy so that others can receive the life –changing transformation that she herself experienced. This calling led to a year long study of Mary Magdalene energies resulting in certification as a Magdalena Energy Practitioner in 2018.

Since then Dale has served as a facilitator for small groups of Magdalena practitioners going through the program, led a monthly Path of the Magdalena Meditation Circle, presented classes and participated in advanced Magdalena trainings.

6/John Bee "Tapash"

Tapash is trained in Indian Astrology and Tantric Yoga by the Ananda Math in Calcutta/Kolkata. This tradition has both female and male Yogis, honoring both the feminine and masculine aspects of God. It also has a ancient lineage of Spiritual Warrior Monks. After decades of studying Sanskrit mantras and hymns, yogic philosophy, and Fire Ceremonies I became qualified to teach and perform Puja`s Vedic Ceremonies. This study honors universal spiritual principles. I love doing people's astrology and have some success in making them aware of their strength and weaknesses. It is amazing that Vedic Astrology can help divine your strengths and weaknesses and is so accurate that there is a time line of when specific Karma is likely to impact your life. I can surprise people how much I can discern about their lives past and future.

7/Christene Springle, w/ Mountain Magic Healing Studio

Christene is an intuitive tarot reader, evidential medium, and animal communicator. Her unique intuitive tarot readings offer guidance and healing, while her mediumship readings bring forth messages and memories from loved ones.

Susan has a strong desire to connect people with their dearly departed loved ones on the other side, and to provide comfort by delivering messages from them.
