Decidedly Edgy Blend of Mantra-Infused Pop Rock - dedicated to supporting your empowerment, liberation, and devotion. Glorious, feminine Shakti vocal energy steeped in deep, beautiful rock grooves. Wild flights of energetic worldbeat sound take you on a magic carpet ride of sonic spiritual bliss - sending you afloat in the high vibration of sacred mantra, while simultaneously grounding you deeply into the earth through visceral body rhythm.


GHOST DOG - Saturday Night

Cary Morin (guitar, vocals), Celeste Di Iorio (harmony vocals), Luke Hunter (bass & vocals), and Josh Vogeler (drums, percussion, & vocals) unite to form a high-energy roots rock band, intent on getting folks up and out of their seats!

Described as “one of the best acoustic pickers on the scene today,” Cary Morin brings together the great musical traditions of America like no other. With deft fingerstyle guitar and vocals that alternately convey melodic elation and gritty world-weariness, Morin crafts an inimitable style often characterized as roots-infused Native Americana with hints of bluegrass, folk, blues, and rock. He has performed at renowned venues across the globe, including the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center, and is the recipient of numerous awards and accolades.

Sweet Root Band - Sunday Afternoon

Rooted in reverence for traditional folk & a love for the land, Sweet Root sings Lullabies of the Land - original songs for nourishing the soul & the soil.

The Sweet Root Sound, inspired from their Colorado Mountain Home, reflects the elements of the wildlands around them. Their resonance rides the wind of vocal harmony, dances in the majesty of old-growth forests, & believes in the sunrise…

Described as "grounding, uplifting music for the soul,"  this band’s compelling presence meets you with a smile, invokes peace within, and invites you to sing along!

Cal Nez

Cal Nez, a Navajo from the Tachiinii Clan grew up in a hogan—on the Navajo Nation in Tocito, New Mexico.  He was raised by traditional grandparents who he credits for teaching him self-reliance and business sense by giving him a herd of sheep to tend when he was 12.  Nez applied those lessons to his present venture, a Salt Lake-based graphic design and advertising that creates materials like brochures, exhibits, advertisements and illustrations for books and posters. Nez considers himself an artist that works in communications.

Today, there are about 450-500 Navajo-owned business, according to Navajo Nation list data. Of those, only about 25 have been in business 10 years, and only approximately five businesses (Cal Nez Design being one of them) have been around longer than 10 years.

Any changes for our people would have to come from within.  We need to look within each of our individual selves.  We need to strengthen our own wings.  If a Navajo boy who grew up on the dirt floor of a hogan can make it in corporate America, certainly anyone with a belief in themselves can make it.

Sarah earned her bachelors of science degree in Psychology at Northeastern University in Boston MA. After graduation, before pursuing graduate school she worked as a counselor in a halfway house for the mentally ill. "I saw firsthand how the conventional treatment for the mentally ill with medication and talk therapy was not always effective, and I wished that there was something more that I could offer my clients." As a result, Sarah pursued Hypnotherapy, a therapy that uses the subconscious mind to change limiting beliefs and unwanted behavior.

Sarah became a Master Hypnotist in 2009 after which she trained with Dr. Brian Weiss to be a certified Past life Regressionist. From there Sarah went on to train with Dolores Cannon’s daughter, Julia Cannon, learning her specialized method called Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique. After many years of dedication and receiving the coveted level 3 practitioner status, Sarah now assists in teaching with Dolores Cannon’s daughter Julia all over the world. She has assisted in Egypt, Mt. Shasta, Peru, as well as Miami. Sarah has been practicing hypnosis and the "healing arts" for over 14 years.

 Debra Emmanuelle

A life-long teacher and student of Life, with multiple degrees and certifications, Debra says, “Over decades of teaching and spiritual counseling in my healing practice and my classes and writings, what I have learned is that I really have never taught anyone anything they did not already know deep in their hearts.  If we are born in Oneness with All that Is, as Spiritual Beings, who choose to have this physical experience, then our Earthly process is one of Awakening and Remembering the Sacred Wisdom that is within us and all around us. So... the evolution of my awareness and my Purpose has shown me that I am not a teacher, but a Remembrance Facilitator.  

My greatest Joy is witnessing the spark of Remembrance of the innate Truth of our Origins, as that spark ignites into the Fire of Remembrance, and begins to burn through all that is needed to release and bring to the surface, the flow of our memory of the Sacred Waters within us - our unbroken connection to all that is Sacred.  My deepest longing as an educator has evolved into an ongoing vigil of opening up and holding a Sacred Healing Space that births new opportunities every day to witness the emergence of Light within those who are ready to remember.”

Lelie has spent the past 24 years learning about the Symbols (Star Knowledge Teachings) and bringing in messages from the Grandmothers, the Spirit Realms and the Star Nations.

“I made a promise sealed with tobacco to Chief Golden Light Eagle that I would help him with his videos. We planned to upload them to Social Media and monetize the videos.” Golden Eagle took his Journey home on July 19, 2021.

I now understand why the Star Nations wanted to continue the teachings under the name ”Knowledge From The Stars” .
