In this part one of a two-part interview, Josie Casteneda, a former corporate manager in the fashion industry, was leading a life of stress and disillusionment. She found solace in returning to her Mexican roots which were seeped in folk herbalism and other forms of healing. During this talk she explains how she has learned to modernize the approach to Latin American healing, and at the same time keep the work authentic to the tradition and balanced with the holistic practices she was introduced to in the US such as meditation, Reiki, yoga therapy, and nutrition. Her audiences are often individuals who feel disconnected from their roots to corporate workers who have gotten lost in their job and need to be brought back to themselves. She is able to guide them by offering approaches each person can use to heal themselves, which gives the individual a new form of independence who often feels obliged to be dependent on one healer, after she teaches them ways to take care of themselves.. She will speak about how this work is evolving, and some of the controversy involved among past healers and modern healers in Latin communities. In the upcoming part II, Josie will describe how some of her healing techniques work and the  sacred practices she uses to create each product in her line of remedies.

Yasmin Boland is the #1 astrologer in Britain. She has researched, studied, and revived the ancient Moon practice used for millennia to manifest the future in the tradition of Indian yogis and Celtic practices. She  named these practices Moonology. Yasmin  informs us how following simple steps by anyone can change our life for the better. That it is not based on whether you believe in it or not, it's more of a practical way to build a plan with focus.  She calls the secret sauce of getting it right is based on preparing ourselves through simple spiritual cleansings and clearing our emotional state of mind.  With over 25 years of research, visiting such places as an Southern Indian ashram, she learned how all rituals of manifestation can be blocked by held grudges and lack of forgiveness. She explains that it's not about simply lighting a candle and making a wish, that intention is developed in steps, so it can be heard clearly and turned into a reality. Yasmin has been the No. 1 astrologer in Britain, as well as the top seller of astrology books/oracle cards in the British Sunday Times, and several other British periodicals.

Dr. Maya Shetreat will speak to us about psychedelics or Master Plants from a new perspective, that is long awaited as a direction modern society should take. The viewpoint from Dr. Maya’s experience is that Master Plants are really Beings of great intelligence, guides and mentors that deserve our respect as well as the indigenous people who guard them. Master plants are powerful healers that might be able to address the most destructive of diseases, physical or mental, but only by adopting this new perspective, one that erases the destructive relationship we've held, can we find this out and greatly benefit from them. She also speaks about Quantum Drops , a product she designed in the form of vibrational medicine. They are made on an altar at a particular Sun/Moon phase, guided by and imbued with the presence of the Master Plant, so these drops can awaken a greater sacredness in our life, because it's not necessary to take them into our body to receive their transformative healing.

Today we will learn about BTB Feng Shui from one of the leading masters in the US, Steven Post. He will discuss the shamanic philosophy behind BTB Feng Shui, his mentor Prof Lin Yun, who brought BTB Feng Shui to the US for the first time in the 1970's. Steven will explain how simple situations in our home that are invisible to us, can cause energetic havoc, and how we should strengthen those areas so we are more protected in life and feel like we have someone or something that has our back in a world, where stress, perfection, and success are the driving force 24-7. He will give examples of such problems like understanding how the kitchen stove represents our financial wealth, and why, and how to improve its strength in our home so it can reflect back what we hope for in financial success; or how to correct a doorway with missing door in a bedroom which can result in illness or disrupt a happy marriage, and many other examples.
