Fiona arrived on earth equipped with the knowledge she had come to help and absolutely no idea as to how she might go about it! As a sensitive child she spent as much time as possible alone with nature, communicating with everything and creating songs.
Her love of the earth was later expressed through a degree in Environmental Science. She spent 11 years in various public service roles, including secondary teaching and environmental policy and planning. She also volunteered with various non government organisations, and for three years was the national vice president of Environs Australia, an organisation dedicated to activating global sustainability initiatives within the local government sector.
At the age of 33, Fiona decided to get her mid life crisis out of the way early, swapping her briefcase for a backpack. For the next 5 years she experienced a magical mystery tour of the world, being activated by sacred places and taught by teachers of many traditions. Fiona has now developed her own unique way of working, more a moment to moment creation than a method. As in childhood, sound and spontaneous songs have become central to Fiona’s work. Life has come full circle.
Fiona now walks in many worlds, facilitating activation and illumination in individuals, groups and corporations. She continues to be guided to various locations around the earth on space clearing and earth activation missions and is often honoured to be joined on these magical journeys by other like hearted souls.

Rachelle Furer began her career in the corporate world and by the time she was 28, had advanced to General Manager of one of the first time management franchises in Switzerland. This period served to ignite her passion for developing people’s talent and potential that has never ceased. By age 32 she had founded her own training company and was nominated Business Woman of the Year in 1990. Shortly after, Rachelle moved to South Africa and added various healing modalities, counseling and coaching to her skills. Focusing mainly on the development of emotional and spiritual competency in others, she found that she was becoming deeply intuitive herself. Studying metaphysics and following meditative practices honed her sensitivity and allows her to effortlessly communicate with other levels of existence. Her training in family and systemic constellation work has provided yet another insight into the interconnectedness of all life and the rich philosophy behind this work offers a stable foundation for all her work.
Today, she works with equal ease coaching and teaching in the business world, as well as offering therapeutic interventions to individuals seeking help. Rachelle has the ability to bridge the mundane with the sacred and the innate ability to add a little magic to everyday life.

Winnie was born in the south east of England and her early life training was in art and art history. Whilst her interests were mainly intellectual and cultural pursuits, she always maintained a deep love of travel and nature. In the early 90s, motherhood proved a major turning point for Winnie, bringing about a spiritual crisis which triggered a desire to research (with an attitude of scientific enquiry and extreme scepticism!) the world of healing, holism and spirituality. She became utterly fascinated by every aspect of metaphysics, from UFOs to near death experiences, from flower essences to shamanism, from crop circles to sacred sites and in the process accumulated an enormous and wide-ranging library of holistic books.
Sixteen years later, Winnie is now a life-coach, counsellor and author. She teaches meditation and has intuitively worked with various energy healing modalities such as essences, crystals, art therapy, the laying on of hands and Brandon Bays’ Journey process. She has been trained by world-renowned hypnotherapist and author, Dolores Cannon, and is a certified advanced practitioner of Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique (QHHT), Dolores Cannon’s unique form of therapeutic hypnotherapy which focuses on past-life regression.
Winnie creates and teaches courses such as “Understanding Metaphysics via Quantum Physics,” and with husband Barry, has developed courses such as “The Five Stages of Healing” and “T.A.C.T.” (their own system of advanced, non-reactive communication) which they co-facilitate. Winnie’s book “The Truth about Illness, Unhappiness and Stress?”, co-authored with Barry, has recently been released in its second edition. Winnie and Barry host regular Mind Body Spirit events featuring some of the UK’s foremost speakers (talks, courses, workshops and films) and co-founded the website “Merlin’s Diary” the world’s first dedicated Holistic Search Engine for Mind Body and Spirit events.
Winnie is a long-term student and teacher of A Course in Miracles, on which she gives talks and runs regular study groups. Over the past six years she has become particularly drawn to the energy of the Divine Feminine which she believes to be intrinsic to the Great Shift in consciousness that is now beginning to take place. She regularly presents Goddess workshops and gives lectures on this subject, often with a particular focus on Mary Magdalene and the Grail Heresy.
Winnie and Barry currently run their consultancy together in East Sussex where they live with their two daughters.
