Jessica Procini is an Emotional Eating Healer and the founder of Escape From Emotional Eating®. She is on a mission to help others use food as fuel rather than a way to cope, soothe, or escape their busy, stressful life.

Carole Fehrman is the creator and founder of an online toxin-free living community, Natural Mama Collective. She’s a wife to her high school sweetheart (Dr. Cody), and a momma to two sweet kiddos (Ryker-4) and (Rhen-18months). They live in Northern, VA with two sweet pups!
Carole’s own toxin-free journey has evolved into what is Natural Mama Collective. While pregnant with her son, she began to dive into the world of toxin-free living. First by choosing home birth with a midwife over traditional obstetric care, and then progressing to research the lotions. washes, bottles, and diapers she would be choosing to put on her registry.
As her research continued, she started to learn about things like fragrance, parabens, and phthalates. She learned about the infamous greenwashing of products and how the industries can put “natural” on a label when there isn’t anything “natural” about it.
The more she learned, the more disgusted she became. Body burden is already so great for women, and now our children face the same fate.
Carole has made it her mission to be the change. Her life’s work is to help women reduce their toxic load and choose better products for their families/selves. She offers ingredient education. safe swaps, a solution to toxic beauty, and a safe space for women to gather no matter where they may be in their own toxin free journey. It’s become a catalyst of change for future generations.
Carole is grateful for all she has learned, the lives she’s influenced, and will continue to share the truth of true toxin-free living for years to come.

When Sarah Clark was 28 years old, she received a diagnosis of premature ovarian failure (loss of function of the ovaries before age 40).
At the time she had chronic yeast infections, acne on her previously clear skin, dandruff, and a weird fungal rash on her chest. She didn’t realize until years later that these health conditions were connected to her fertility. She accepted the diagnosis and was fortunate to have both her children with donor eggs.
After her children were born her health began to suffer. She experienced chronic bladder infections, chronic sinus infections, chronic yeast infections worsened, toenail infections, vertigo, seasonal allergies, allergies to multiple antibiotics, and eczema.
Years later she realized the root cause of her infertility was a food intolerance and later a gut infection. She did not discover this link until she was fully in menopause. Her message is one of HOPE. If you are still cycling naturally there are steps we can take with the tools of functional medicine.
Sarah is a certified life coach with accreditation from the International Coaches Federation and a health coach with training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
She is the author of Fabulously Fertile – Supercharge your Fertility Naturally, Fabulously Fertile Cookbook, and Fertility Preparation Program.

Cynthia Cummins sells houses in San Francisco. It’s arguably the most daunting real estate market in the country, where winning a 900 sq. ft. two-bedroom condo means coughing up $1.2 million in cash and doing battle with five other buyers for that dubious honor.
It’s a pressure cooker where commerce and human emotions collide, and in her 30 years spent swimming in that soup, she has gained a lot of wisdom about the psychology of seeking shelter.
Buying or selling property is a focus for the manifestation of every desire, neurosis, dream, or value a human being can possess. And real estate is, first and foremost, about home and its deepest meaning. It’s not merely a transaction. It’s a transition. And – if you’re lucky – it offers a chance for transformation and healing.
Her popular blog Real Estate Therapy explores the rich and complex narrative behind every home sale and reveals the ideas and guidelines that can make the experience a rewarding, life-affirming journey.

Matt Maruca is a researcher, entrepreneur, and educator in the fields of photobiology, mitochondria, and optimal human health.
He is the Founder of Ra Optics (pronounced “Rah”), a company that teaches people about the risks of the indoor, sun-deficient, tech-based lifestyle, and creates the most effective blue light
protection lenses to mitigate its risks to help people to sleep better, think more clearly, and have the energy to succeed in everything they do.
Matt’s passion for “enlightening” others came out of his own experience with health issues at a young age. These struggles forced him to test many allopathic drugs, “alternative” treatments, and healing diets, ultimately coming to find that the science of mitochondrial medicine has clearly proven that the cause of all chronic disease is a dysfunction of the mitochondria, the cellular engines that keep us alive.
The first cause of this dysfunction is an indoor lifestyle deficient in full-spectrum sunlight, which is essential for complete metabolism, and chronic exposure to artificial lighting and tech devices that disrupt biological hormonal and sleep cycles, leading to inflammation and disease.
He is currently focused on research in the field of photobiology, the scientific study of the effects of lighting on living organisms, and on continuing to develop the world’s most effective blue light protection lenses.

Lauren Unger is a spiritual coach and energetic healer. For her, holding space for her clients and guiding them in their journey is her deepest passion and her true calling. According to Lauren:
“Whether I am coaching one on one clients or groups, hosting workshops or sound baths or hosting in-person healing sessions I am fully lit up. I remember the beginning of my awakening and how lonely it was. I sought like-minded individuals who would understand what I was going through but they were few and far between and that is why I have created what it is that I do.
I believe we are our own greatest healer and what we transmute and heal within ourselves we can then offer to others.
Each piece of my work I deeply integrate into my cells and DNA before I share it with others. From holy fire reiki to mastery of the akashic records to sound healing, Karuna reiki to studying and being initiated as a shaman to now be deep-diving into releasing stress and trauma from our physical body and organs with the work of true body intelligence I have become a student of life. I follow the path that is laid out for me, I take the work and opportunities seriously, I study, I implement and then I share and teach.”

Jeannette Bessinger is on a national mission to serve educators, business professionals, spiritual seekers and all the other women who are tired of feeling trapped by their aching, overweight bodies and painful, self-destructive mindsets.
Men and women age very differently, and the majority of health & fitness data today is deeply male-biased. 95% of “healthy eating systems” do not take a woman’s fluctuating hormones into account at all. As a result, thousands of women are giving up on improving their health, energy, and weight.
They are frustrated with the ineffectiveness of the diet industry and unsatisfied with the overly-simplistic advice of their medical professionals to “sleep more and eat fewer calories.”
By overturning the flawed paradigm that drives the way we think about women’s health and wellness in this country, Jeannette paves the way for a shift in consciousness that allows us to reclaim our power as strong women and beacons of light for everyone in our circles.
With a unique combination of humorous, real-life stories and rich, practical content, Jeannette taps into decades of experience to build MeBoot, a groundbreaking program designed to help women understand the deep interconnectedness of body, mind, and spirit, and better negotiate their fitness, food, and mood beyond the childbearing years.
Engaging and inspiring, Jeannette generates profound “ah-ha” experiences among women, awakening them to the possibility of life “in the Flow.”

In recent years, his passion for food and optimal health have intersected with his embrace of a ketogenic (low-carb, high fat) diet. Thom’s latest project is a line of ketogenic condiments intended to help more people successfully adopt a healthier lifestyle.

“Once a teacher, always a teacher,” Antoinette Caruso says as she shares her passion for nutrition, food, and spiritual development.
When her husband died with complications from pharmaceuticals, she left her teaching career to pursue new degrees and to rediscover ancient knowledge. She earned certificates as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner from the Nutritional Therapy Association in Seattle Washington, and as Certified Gluten Practitioner from Dr. Tom O’Bryan, the world’s leading authority on gluten and autoimmune disease.
“We have a dual nature,” Antoinette explains. “We’re spiritual beings in a physical body, so it’s important to focus on how we feel emotionally because that impacts the state of our body.” With background training as a Reiki Master and a certificate in Chinese Medicine, she teaches clients how balance is key to healthy living.
“We are designed to be happy and healthy,” Antoinette continues, “our body is continually regenerating and regrowing cells. When we give it the proper foods and nutrition, and when we continually think healthy and happy thoughts, we re-create healthy cells in a body that will live a long life.”
Antoinette practices today in Ellsworth, Maine, and consults with clients nationwide via the web.
