Stacy Every, EFT Practitioner and Coach

Stacy is a coach who uses Emotional Freedom Technique and other somatic practices to help her clients release fears and limiting beliefs. Old beliefs and fears keep us trapped and unable to change our lives in positive ways. Through body-centered practices, we free ourselves from what holds us back, so we can have the lives we want.

Stacy is a former Language Arts instructor, massage therapist and energy worker. She quit her steady teaching job to pursue a new career and have built two businesses from the ground up. She loves studying different aspects of holistic medicine as well as the mind/body connection. She has three teenage children, including boy/girl twins. She enjoys gardening, knitting, and hiking.

Melissa Lisette Edwards, Spiritual Herbalist and Earth Activator with Barefoot Soul

Melissa Edwards

Melissa works with changemakers, socially conscious entrepreneurs, activists, justice healers, wayshowers, and leaders committed to social reform who want to be fully embodied in their expression. She does this through flower, plant, and gem medicine and akashic record reading and teaching. The expansion of emotional capacity to see beyond separation, individual empowerment rooted in TRUTH, releasing cycles of violence and trauma in order to create space and possibilities for the new world, and helping to decolonize our relationship with plant medicine is the purpose behind her work.

In her early 20’s, Melissa won a lifting competition (that time she was a bodybuilder). she was, and will always be, a dancer, although the how has changed. She loves growing seasons because it’s flower essence making time! She loves laying on the ground, anywhere, and she says she would love to live in a tree. Melissa was also recently published in the Journal of Medicinal Plant Conservation, A United Plant Savers Production.

Michelle is a certified holistic life coach and specializes in helping changemakers, advocates, and leaders to prevent and recover from over-giving and compassion fatigue through trauma sensitive yoga, meditation and mindfulness.

When Michelle isn’t working you can find her getting lost in the woods, biking to Pilates or making dance videos in her kitchen. Along with her husband and daughter, they like to live life with a sense of adventure in honor of their son that died in 2018. Adventures can be as big as traveling across the country or digging in the dirt in their own backyard. Life is meant to be lived, not just survived.
