Tina Powers

Trusting Your Own Natural Knowing

It is our birthright to be intuitive.  Trusting ourselves is the key to our own freedom.
It is my belief we all have intuitive psychic gifts. Somewhere along the line we were told not to use them. It became more important what other people thought about us, instead of what we thought and felt. Our value was dependent on others viewpoints. I am hoping we turn that concept around. Learning to trust ourselves, what we sense and how we feel.
Tina lectures on intuition and holds private sessions with clients at the world renowned Miraval Resort in Arizona. Her clientele is a veritable "who's who" of people from all walks of life - from business leaders to celebrities that span the globe. Her warmth, infectious laugh and incredible ability to help people connect with a higher vibration enables them to lead happier and more inspired lives.


Vanessa Johnson

Control and Letting Go

Vanessa’s first career was in the biotech industry working in oncology (Glaxo, Seattle Genetics, Biogen/IDEC/Genentech, and Celgene). She obtained a Master’s degree in Public Health and went on to become the founder of My Health Concierge, dedicated to helping cancer patients and caregivers by matching them with their own oncology nurse to guide them throughout their cancer journey.

She closed the doors of MHC after 2 years and was searching for her next opportunity when her path took a sharp turn in an unexpected direction and she found herself as the Executive Director for a local Meditation Center. Vanessa went on to get her 2-year Meditation Teacher Training Certification through a program with Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach.

She is now Co-Founder/CEO of Navvisa, a reiteration of her former company, bringing her experience, a seasoned team in healthcare and tech, and adding a telehealth platform to scale the company nationally.

Vanessa volunteered at Stanford Healthcare and Med School as a Patient Family Partner representing the patient voice on various quality improvement projects, speaking engagements and serving on the Patient Family Advisory Board at Stanford Hospital. She also enjoys fun adventures and traveling the world with her husband.

Vanessa will be speaking about: 

Life surprises you if you let it- in the most difficult and wonderful ways! I've found life's journey is circuitous, not straight. And the concept of a Destination is an illusion.


From being very ill as a child (almost dying 2x before age 13) having a dogged determination, and  living life in a very controlling way to 'make things happen', to discovering that following your passion, working hard, AND holding things lightly (don't cling to the shore, float with the tide), would take me to places better than I had imagined for myself. 

Through Meditation, silent retreats- I had some very profound experiences that I'd like to share regarding control and letting go:)


My life's journey from a competitive career in fast-paced biotech- coming to a screeching halt and landing at a meditation retreat center- to becoming CEO of a digital health company at age 54, and now who I am at age 62. It's been an interesting ride so far:)

BioGeometry and the Energies of Life

As a student of BioGeometry, a vast energetic modality with its roots in Egyptian temple sciences and
French Radiesthesia I have become aware of the subtle energies that surround and animate all life,
matter and land that surrounds us. BioGeometry teaches us that thorough RESONANCE we can come
into balance with our surroundings. This practice can guide us through practical skills such as locating
and correcting hazardous earth energy lines in our homes; reducing our exposure to EMF radiation or
making the best food/consumer product choices. Using BioGeometry provides us with a level of
profound support in our modern world and enhances our experience of it for the benefit of ourselves
and others.
In this session I will guide you through a brief history of BioGeometry and demonstrate how to use a
neutral pendulum to discover your own energetic fingerprint. This pendulum, when used properly, can
determine whether particular substances are strengthening or weakening for you.
I look forward to demonstrating this practice, opening the door to a powerful invisible, yet tangible
