Retreat Host, Business Consultant, Author
"I want to help everyone do this: create a life that supports us financially while being based in our own creative genius and in true healing for ourselves and for the planet."
Maggie O'Dea grew up in the oak woods in Iowa and began communicating with nature at an early age. She loved being in the forest by herself and talking to the trees. Experiencing numerous traumas in her childhood prompted her to question existence and the meaning of life. Maggie found yoga at 16 and began practicing kripalu yoga which led to her seeking out a Buddhist based education from Naropa University and Maharishi University of Management. Having a deep love of eastern philosophy and healing, Maggie has created a business program, based on the Chinese element system, to help creative entrepreneurs have a system to start, grow and scale their business.
Maggie is also currently at the editing phase of writing a book about up- leveling our economic system. She realized that our economic system is based on Newtonian principles of reality and if we shift into a Quantum based system of thinking about resources and economics we would uncover more abundance in our natural world. This book is due to be published winter of 2020.
Maggie's third love is an energetically infused body care company called Devi Mukta. Where she creates vibrational essences to put in body care using therapeutic grade essential oils to treat the entire aura/mind/body connection. To connect with her about any of these projects please do not hesitate, she loves to be of service in any way possible!!

Nathalie Kelly, BCH
Board Certified Hypnotherapist
Nathalie Kelly has been in the holistic health field for 30 years and had a successful healing practice. In 2010 her world was turned upside down by a sailing accident that resulted in a traumatic brain injury. As a Board Certified Hypnotherapist, she had helped hundreds of people heal physical, emotional, and mental challenges, and now suddenly she faced all three, unable to walk, drive, converse, read, or tolerate simple things like motion or light. When doctors told her she would never heal, she refused to believe that and relied upon her belief that the body knows how to heal. She had used the principles of neuroplasticity in her profession everyday to help people re-wire their brains. She knew the brain was changeable and that human capacity is much greater than we think. She has learned so much along the way, turning crisis into a tremendous opportunity for evolution, and leading her to a new and better way of navigating the world not with her mind, but with her heart.
Nathalie has made a miraculous recovery and now helps people living with brain injuries move from confusion and chaos to clarity and calm. She coaches people in creating better functioning brains and more effective mindsets, so they can regain hope and live a happier life. Nathalie has a popular YouTube channel, Brain Recovery Coach. She offers tools, resources, and support to individuals and groups, is a Keynote speaker, has appeared on radio and TV shows, and has spoken at conferences featuring both of her favorite topics, spirituality and neuroscience. In 2017, Nathalie was awarded the Brain Injury Survivor of the Year Award.

Author, Director of Connective Parenting
Bonnie Harris is the director of Connective Parenting and the author of When Your Kids Push Your Buttons and Confident Parents, Remarkable Kids: 8 Principles for Raising Kids You’ll Love to Live. She has been an international speaker, trainer, teacher, and coach/counselor for parents for over thirty years and has appeared on numerous TV, online and podcast programs.

Bonnie is the proud mother of two adult children raised with her connective approach. For more information and contact, her website is https://bonnieharris.com.
Connective parenting is about relationship over teaching right and wrong. It’s about mutual respect, balance, trust and teaching responsible behavior by behaving
responsibly. It is about modeling what you want to see in your children. So therefore, it is mostly about you. It has nothing but common sense at its core. It doesn’t change with
the parenting styles of the day. But for most of us, common sense has been covered over with layers of learned beliefs and expectations that derail us. It’s also about understanding that your child’s defiance is your signal that your child is having a problem, not being a problem.
