Tina Schomburg is a lighthouse that points the way to your inner com­pass. As a writer and poet, she inspires and empowers us to embark on a journey inward to discover the true magnificence within all of us. While pen and paper have always felt like a natural extension of her essence, Tina didn’t share her introspective prose until cancer broke her open. This intimate encounter with death set her soul on fire and sent her blazing into the heart of the world. Her writing is infused with so much love that her words have been coined as “soul hugs” by many readers. Tina has an uncanny ability to bridge spirituality with practicality, of­fering a down-to-earth perspective of our cosmic existence. Her mis­sion as a social entrepreneur and health activist is to guide others through challenging transitions and personal transformations. With a deep connection to nature, she seeks counsel from Mother Earth, who teaches her the ways of grace through every phase of life and death. With a grateful heart, Tina channels this wisdom through every aspect of her work, challenging us to inquire deeply into the nature of our Self. Tina operates on the fuel of service, and is devoted to creating a world filled with love and compassion for generations to come. Her daily reminder to lead by example is rooted in the principle that if we heal ourselves, we heal the world.

Briana Gagne, author

Briana Gagné is a thirty-year-old VP in the nine-to-five world, host of the You Are Here podcast, writer, self-care advocate, wife, bonus mom, and religious attendee of the church of self-improvement. Raised in California, she graduated from San Diego State University in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in liberal studies. Post-college, she gypsied around multiple cities on opposite coasts before deciding to plant her roots in the Pacific Northwest. Previously a deep-rooted people-pleaser, she began to find her authentic self in the surrender of should. A known reading enthusiast, it is not uncommon to find Briana wander­ing a local bookstore, in downward dog, or sipping tea. She has a daily meditation practice during which she usually falls asleep, but is still proud of herself. And, if asked, she will deny how much time she spends giggling at animal videos. Briana believes everyone has a story and hopes to inspire others by sharing hers. She knows she can’t change the world but believes if we each work to change our own worlds, we have the ability to create a positive ripple effect capable of transcending. Equal parts wander­lust and homebody, this woman finds life is all about balance (which is an illusion, by the way, but we try to get as close as we can). The art of surrender has become some of her favorite soul work. Briana lives in Oregon with her loves: her husband, the Zs, and their furbaby. She is currently working on her first novel. ig: briana_gagne

Nicole lives in New Jersey with her husband Ryan, daughter Teagan, and rescue dog Hogan. Outside of coaching, writing, and organizing the chaos under her roof, she likes to relax through yoga, hiking, and sipping craft brews — both beer and her tasty batches of homemade kombucha.

Effie Mitskopoulos, author

Effie Mitskopoulos, founder of Soul Body Healer, holds a master’s degree in social work and specializes in holistic psychotherapy. She customizes Western interventions with hypnosis, mindfulness, yoga, and energy work. Her commitment to helping others stems from her own healing journey. Despite hardships, Effie kept receiving mes­sages that there was more to life than suffering. Many times she felt like giving up, but hope and persistence kept her seeking knowledge, authenticity, spirituality, and, ultimately, wellness. Her journey was catapulted in 2010 by practicing Kundalini yoga and becoming a yoga teacher. She came to realize that healing occurs on all levels: mind, body, and soul. Because much discomfort stems from a mental-emotional-energetic cause, practicing mindfulness and hypnosis can shift unconscious programming, helping to manage emo­tional states, while Reiki and yoga bring balance and strength to the body and energetic systems by releasing unresolved emotions and energy blockages. Effie has provided programs ranging from stress management, de­pression, anxiety, chronic pain, addiction, and trauma for thousands of people in many populations. She believes that every individual has special gifts and has the strength to heal themselves. It is her pas­sion to help her clients uncover the root cause of their discomfort and release distressing patterns so they can live happy, peaceful, and meaningful lives. Her vision is the uplifting of humanity — for people to feel whole and well and free to express themselves fully so that every interaction is loving and compassionate, supporting a peaceful world. soulbodyhealer@gmail.com www.soulbodyhealer.com fb: @soulbodyhealer
