Diana Cooper
Guest Occupation: world renown lecturer, healer, animal communicator and bestselling author
Guest Biography:

Diana Cooper is a world renown lecturer, healer, animal communicator and bestselling author of many books, meditation CD's and sets of cards, who is well known for her spiritual books about angels, archangels, ascension, unicorns, all elementals including fairies, Atlantis and Ascended Masters. She has written 24 books and is published in 27 languages, including  a series of children's books and Angel cards to empower and enchant children. As an angel expert, she teaches seminars worldwide and has inspired thousands of people to fulfill their spiritual potential.

Diana's aim and vision is to light the way to enable children, adults and the planet to ascend graciously and happily.

Her spiritual journey started during a time of personal crisis. With no spiritual experience, non religious background, with parents that were totally skeptical of anything psychic or intangible - with no where to turn. She called out to the universe for help, she shouted, ‘If there’s anything out there, show me – and you’ve got one hour.’ Immediately, a beautiful golden Being of Light appeared in front of her and pulled her out of her physical body (her spirit). They flew together and the Angel showed her many things. Then they moved on to the most important part of the experience. They flew together, side by side, over a hall  full of people with rainbow auras, she was on a platform, and the Angel communicated that she was to be a spiritual teacher. When the Angel returned her to her body it was exactly one hour later.

 

After that experience she knew there were Angels surrounding us, just waiting to help us.  She travels all over the world introducing people to Angels and the spiritual beings of the universe.

 

Diana is considered one of the most loved spiritual teachers of our time.

 

She is the founder of The Diana Cooper School, a non-profit organization that offers certificated spiritual teaching courses throughout the world.  Training people worldwide to teach about Angels, Ascension, Transformation and Atlantis.

Moses Akwiri Okoth
Guest Occupation: Feminist, Activist
Guest Biography:

Feminist, activist and person-with-a mission, Moses Akwiri Okoth (Mo) was the 11th child in a Kenyan family of six boys and six girls. After12 years of school, Mo earned the Kenyan Certificate of Secondary Education. He won a college scholarship to Georgia, USA. Because his father got sick, he returned to Kenya after two years. He persevered, however, and gained a Graduate Certificate in Social Studies.

Moses Okoth and a handful of supporters had struggled to make tiny inroads into a major cause of school absenteeism in the poverty stricken region of Siaya County in Kenya. It led to dropping out, early pregnancy, marriage and ongoing poverty for schoolgirls. The cause? not having menstrual supplies. They dreamed of providing free, locally made, washable, reusable cloth pants, liners and inserts (moonpads) to every menstruating school girl in the Mulaha ward of Siaya. On 21st October 2014, asked Hayward for help.

Hayward undertook this to be her major focus: organised fundraisers, co-opted friends, sent money, promoted, enthused and harangued. Within two mhs, it had been re-named The Mul (representing the region) Moon (representing the product:moonpads) Project. Resources now extend to two GOOD mobile phones, two laptops, a camera, two bicycles, five sewing machines, a mh’s deposit on renting a room, a volunteer coordinator of lessons, bolts of fabric, a website, a PayPal account, a Facebook group & plans to start sewing lessons on 15th Jan 2015 at The Mulmoon Secretariat.

The early years of Patricia Hayward, Masters in Theology, Bachelor of Arts, Diploma of Education were spent with parents and seven siblings, in the late 1950s and early 1960s, pioneering the closer settlement of what had been Gurley Station. They lived in a shack while the shearing shed was being built and lived in the shearing shed until their home was built. It was 43 kilometres by rough unsealed road from the nearest town of any size, Moree in the northwest of the State of New South Wales in Australia. Getting the phone connected, and later electricity, were momentous events.

Her early schooling was at a one-teacher Primary school in Gurley village and she cinued on to Moree High School.

In the August of her final year at High School, when she was School Captain and had been the first young person in the district to win The Queen’s Award in The Girls Brigade, Hayward became the first student from that area of NSW to go as an AFS exchange student. Her host family were in Denison, Iowa, USA. During that AFS year of 1971-1972, she became the first exchange student at that school to be inducted into the USA’s National Honour Society, an award given for scholastic ability, character and service.

On returning to Australia, Hayward completed a University Degree in History, English and Politics at the University of New England in Armidale NSW with a Distinction Average, the highest of any student in her college, and then a Diploma of Education with English and History as her teaching methods. She was the first woman to become President of the Evangelical Union at UNE.

Following two years of High School teaching, Hayward completed a Masters of Arts in Theology at Fuller Theological Seminary, in Pasadena, Los Angeles, USA and it was during this time her oldest son was born. Six years in Newcastle, NSW followed, with Hayward becoming the Regional Coordinator of volunteers for a para-church organisation, Scripture Union. During this time, her 2nd son was born.

Promoted to be Scripture Unions Schools Coordinator for all of NSW again, the first woman to be appointed to this role - Hayward and family moved Sydney. By this time, her reputation as someone who could build a team, inspire confidence, innovate and utilise the mass media had grown and she had gained experience as an anchor person in a mhly television show in Newcastle.

After three years in that role, Hayward returned to her first love, teaching secondary students and having taught in a State school, she now taught in Catholic and Independent schools. In the following decades, her reputation grew, especially following the introduction of  Studies of Religion as a Higher School Certificate subject with the 5th largest cohort of any subject. She has had four textbooks published for this course and spoken at Teacher in-services and student HSC Study Days throughout the State.

Whenever in a position of leadership, frequently as a volunteer, the groups Hayward has led have flourished beyond all previous expectations. After three years on the Committee, in 1992 Hayward became Sydney Convenor of the ecumenical Movement for the Ordination of Women giving 17 press conferences in that turbulent year alone, and then became its National President. By this time, Hayward had often appeared on radio and television and her newspaper and journal articles had been published widely within Australia and overseas.

Not long after relinquishing her position as National President, Hayward was asked to join the Executive of the professional teaching body for teachers of Studies of Religion and the following year became its State President.  With her cinuing commitment to social justice issues, Hayward has been passionately advocating on asylum seeker issues and remained active in the Movement for the Ordination of Women. On the 21st October, she was cacted by Moses Akwiri Okoth from Kenya and alerted to the disastrous vicious circle of poverty, school absenteeism and illiteracy that accompanied the extreme poverty of many menstruating school girls. The major cause of school absenteeism, and girls failing to even enter, let alone complete the last 4 years of high school, was lack of menstrual supplies.

Hayward undertook this to be her major focus. She organised fundraisers, co-opted friends, sent money, promoted, enthused and harangued the couple of supporters in Kenya. At the time of making cact with Hayward, the resources for this project consisted of two mobile phones, one in a very poor state. Within less than two mhs, it had been re-branded The Mul (representing the Mulaha region of Siaya, Kennedy from whence hailed the father of US President Barack Obama) Moon (representing the product: moonpads) Project.

Mo and friends established the Tumaini Girls rescue and Shelter Center under the umbrella of MENding Africa. This was after the corrupt Kenyan election results were announced in 2007. Riots broke out and in the resulting violence, sexual assaults were common. Mo was volunteering at a Red Cross shelter and found the need for menstrual towels was a pressing one. So too was safety for girls who had been raped and were at further risk. Mo moved the girls he could manage from the Internally Displaced Persons camps from Nairobi to Siaya to land left by his father. They established Tumaini especially for victims of sexual assault. This centre (known colloquially and for brevity as the Safehouse) is still going, albeit on a very hand to mouth existence. It accommodates 50 girls at a time and its purpose is to see that these girls complete school.

Every year Walk a Mile in My Shoes operates in Kenya and some of the money raised by this goes to the safe house.  Mo has been to Australia once when the YWCA had a huge meeting in 2009 for HIV AIDS.

Tumaini and The Sons of Africa Sanitary Towel Initiative both exist as projects under MENding Africa as projects with different objectives. With a team of seven dedicated men and women volunteers, they have to work a lot of hours to make sure that the Safehouse is up and running. It was the Sanitary Towel Initiative that ran a pilot program in 2009 to distribute free menstrual supplies to schoolgirls and school absenteeism by girls when menstruating dropped dramatically, from over one third to about 12% - a drop of 67%.

The Mulmoon Project is unique because it has a two-pronged approach to the urgent need for sanitary supplies to keep girls in school. One is making the product locally, thus providing training and the second is distributing the product locally, by bicycle, if we can raise the funds to buy four more bicycles. The carbon print is therefore minimal. The fabric is locally available. The locals, especially local women, are very keen to help with the project. These are girls who have finished school who are very keen to get some vocational training. Some will come from homes that do not have electricity. The girls at the Safehouse will be voluntarily sewing as an after school project and during school vacations. If The Mulmoon Project can rally enough support to keep it going, it could be a model for many such projects in Kenya and indeed in other countries in Africa.

Fundraising is very hard. Gender inequity cinues. Rape and sexual violence cinue. We want a holistic approach, a strategy that enables us to reach our vision and mission towards gender equity, the ending of sexual violence and rape and the unlocking of the true potential of Kenyan schoolgirls to grow up to be recognised as equal, valuable and cributing members of Kenyan society.

For it to work, we really need to widen our support base. So far, we have had one small donation from the USA, five from Australian women and everything else has come from Patricia and Roger. To be viable in the long term, we need to find one hundred people who would be willing to commit to giving one hundred dollars a year or $8.30 per mh. I think that is do-able.

Dianne Collins
Guest Occupation: Writer, Visionary, Author, Motivational Speaker
Guest Biography:

Dianne Collins is an original thinker and is one of the first and foremost thought-leaders of our time. She consults with executives in the worlds leading corporations as well as with enterprising entrepreneurs, celebrities, students and evolutionaries in the new system of thinking she created, QuantumThink. Her life is dedicated to people living spirited, joyful, and masterful lives through leaps in awareness and the expansion of their relationship to reality. She is a master of translating ancient knowledge into modern quantum terms that provide a practical and transformative platform for the way we conduct our business and personal affairs. Dianne has been interviewed on over 100 radio and TV shows, a popular returning guest.

Do You Quatum Think: New Thinking That Will Rock Your World by Dianne Collins. Ms. Collins is an important thought-leader of our time; her workshops and consulting sessions are widely sought after by a clientele that includes politicians, celebrities, and CEOs alike. This ambitious book is the culmination of her lifes work, and it unveils the powerful secrets she has uncovered in the process. These secrets bridge the gap between ancient wisdom and modern science to reveal a power that exists in each of us if only we learn how to access its source. The key to this access is a concept she calls QuantumThink®, which explains that our thinking is not free but is conditioned by our world view. Only with this knowledge are we able to pursue the lives that we truly desire.

This book is much more than a self-help book, and Dianne Collins is more than simply the latest motivational speaker. Do You QuantumThink? asserts that the human race is at a critical juncture in its development and it is our collective responsibility to evolve our thought process or face the consequences. Ms. Collins explains that our thinking has not evolved past an Industrial Age paradigm rooted in a mechanical world view. Einsteins relativity and the quantum physics of the 20th century initiated a process of dismantling this archaic model. Just as quantum physics redefined the physical world, the aim of Quantum Thinking is to reinvent perception in a way that is better suited for the shifting realities of modern times.

The message of Do You QuantumThink? is divided among 21 QuantumThink Distinctions which blend scientific knowledge, spiritual wisdom, and current philosophy into a practical modern approach that will attune the readers to the essence of our time and the ability to think in sync with it. Some important concepts that readers will draw from Do You QuantumThink? are: 

- The power of Intent to manifest results in Observer-created Reality 

- The disciplined use of Intuition as our access to the non-local field of Infinite Intelligence 

- Listening as a dimension of being rather than a skill 

- Awareness to notice and interrupt limited thinking patterns and move beyond them 

- How Mind generates Emotion and how to use this dynamic energy to our advantage.

Raushi
Guest Occupation: Singer, Songwriter and Model
Guest Biography:

By the age of 20, small town Michigan native DANI RAUSHI (aka RAUSHI, also the name of the L.A. based singer-songwriter’s band) had sung at her grandpa’s church; taken gymnastics, dance, ballet and jazz classes; done pageants and competitions; run away from home; high-tailed it to Hollywood at 18; and toured Italy with her first pop EP. All those experiences were just the warm-up for her emergence a few years later touring Australia with bands HELMET and THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT, and becoming (what one friend calls) “a crazy, awesome, random hippie rock star superwoman who enjoys taking the world by storm.” It’s that fully realized, battle tested singer/songwriter we meet on RAUSHI’s triumphant, high octane, in your face full length debut HIGH TIDES COLLIDE.

We’ve all heard great artists inspire us with their wild tales of heartache, but Raushi was slammed against even more intense emotional walls via crazy living situations with former band mates that would make a Reality TV producer blush. For Raushi, the great news is that music has long been a poetic tool that takes the darker energies of life’s mentally and emotionally charged situations and transforms betrayal and rage into positive release. With a lyrical flow of clever puns, HIGH TIDES COLLIDE unapologetically exposes the risk of over-consumption within the volatile realm of all-consuming love. With their ‘take no shit’ attitude and songs that say “F— You” to being mistreated, fooled and taken for granted, Raushi is a testament to the power of one’s will.

Guest Category: Arts, Health & Lifestyle, Medicine, Science
Guest Occupation: Author and Channel
Guest Biography:

I wasn’t aware of how much I was connected with my Spiritual guides until I was in my twenties. I remember as a child I was afraid to be alone in the dark. I was five and my sister, Maureen, was six. I would ask my sister to “think” when we were tucked in for the night.  I somehow knew that if she was thinking, she would be awake allowing me to comfortably go to sleep so I wouldn’t be alone in the dark.

A few years later, while experiencing unpleasant dreams, my guides taught me to think pleasant thoughts to replace the haunting ones in my dreams. I later learned only one conscious thought can be in the mind at any one time. If I thought of something positive and exciting nothing negative could enter the doorway of my mind.

When I was in my teens, I could manifest almost all the things I wanted in life with grace and ease. The manifestations weren’t anything major – good grades in school, an occasional gift, getting the job I applied for – but I felt and noticed that my life appeared to be guided.

I enlisted in the Marine Corps after graduating from high school. I received a  medical discharge after two years for blindness in my right eye. I enrolled in college shortly thereafter and earned an Associate of Arts Degree in Accounting. After graduation, I began my career in the corporate world. Most of my working years were in supervising individuals, coaching, and managing the daily routine using the spiritual techniques taught to me by my spirit guides. I contribute my 35 years of success in the corporate world to a spiritual consciousness in handling my daily business routines, dealing honestly and truthfully, and treating all individuals like family.

When I started to meditate as a young father,  my awareness increased and I realized that the Great White Brotherhood was working with me.  On one occasion while on a business trip, I was guided to go to an old book store  where I reached for a book on the top shelf. It was called First Book of Azrael: Teachings of the Great White Brotherhood (by the Great White Brotherhood and published by Devorss & Co., 1965). Subtle experiences like this were indications to me that I was being guided by the Great White Brotherhood.

Although I worked during the day in the corporate world, I continued to do my spiritual work in the evenings and on weekends. In my late twenties, I followed a four-year study curriculum and became an Ordained Metaphysical Minister.  In that capacity, I occasionally facilitated funerals and weddings.

After a dynamic, spiritually awakening dream visit with the Lords of Amenti, I learned about thoughts. I began facilitating meditation classes which I did for over twenty-five years assisting other in connecting with their Spirit guides. Through the years, I became a Reiki Master and studied in Hawaii to certify as a Kundalini Yoga instructor.

I enhanced my connection with Spirit when I visited to  Peru on several occasions to participate in Shamanic spiritual ceremonies that included  drinking the Shaman plants Ayahuasca and Huachum.
