Guest Occupation: AKA 'Mr. Edge', Author, Master Figure Skating boot-blade specialist, Owner of Arena Sports & Consulting
Guest Biography:

John was born and raised in Chicago and earned a degree and certification as an X-ray technologist. While serving his internship in X-ray, someone in the skating industry familiar with John’s background and medical training encouraged him to consider entering the industry.

As an X-ray technologist John learned easier, more effective ways to achieve optimum results while having little to work with. Applying his medical and scientific training to his business practices, John discovered an easier, more accurate way to fit boots,mount and sharpen blades.Applying knowledge from his skeletal anatomy courses, John quickly realized the importance of properly preparing boots for mounting, and as a result noticed a decline in the need for remounting blades.John also noted a reduction in recurring injuries, apparently the result of bad fittings,mountings and sharpening.

His newly developed techniques resulted in reduced skating injuries and an overall improvement in skating technique for skaters.In the fall of 2000, a member of U.S. Figure Skating heard about John’s work and asked if he would be interested in contributing an article to Skating magazine.John’s “Ask Mr. Edge” column was featured in U.S. Figure Skating magazine for more than a decade.

In 2013 John released the industry’s first ever book,“Anatomy of a Figure Skating Injury”. The book details the many injuries ice skaters are prone to and how to prevent the same injury from recurring. Since that time John has gone on to become recognized around the world as the leading authority on equipment related injuries to figure skaters.

In 2014 John released his second book, “What Teenage Driver Don’t Know, The Unwritten Riles of the Road” which went on to be used in the Naperville, IL High Schools. In writing this book, John relied upon his million plus miles of driving experience and the fact that his children were of age and learning to drive.

Since then John has written and published an Ice Skaters Equipment Guide which he gives to each customer purchasing a pair of skates. The ROI from both figure skating books was well worth the time and effort.

The Quest of Rose: The Cosmic Keys of Our Future Becoming is the first book of the Future Humans Trilogy series. Written as an allegory, The Quest of Rose guides you through an experiential transformation journey that weaves together real-life events that are at the forefront of what’s happening in our world right now, with cutting-edge insights from the new sciences, indigenous wisdom, and consciousness teachings for discovering the greater possibilities of our future becoming. Already referred to by many world-renowned luminaries as: “a masterpiece“, “epic and unlike any other“, “one of the most important books of our catalytic time“, and “a true gift to humanity.”

The Quest of Rose offers the promise of a possible future through nine Cosmic Keys and twelve transformation practices for developing your future potential of a new era. In the words of Lynne McTaggart’s foreword: “The Quest of Rose is ultimately a work of profound hope by offering a powerful new definition of ourselves and a vision of unlimited future possibility. But this trilogy also means to be an incitement to radical transformation. And there may be no turning back. Once you are caught up in Rose’s revelations and begin to understand the deep truths within them, a new way of your own being must be born. Allow this brilliant new story to unleash the imaginal cells of your own extraordinary potential and become the future human you were always meant to be.”

You’ll join the quest of the future humans of a new era, which is really our own quest into the heart of reality to discover the fundamental unity of life

Guest Biography:


“Like all of you, I am too a soul who came here on this fascinating earthly journey to gain more awareness of myself through a new perspective based on polarity. My heart and my imagination are the navigation tools. As I progress into the physical experience directed by the voice of my heart and by the synchronicities of life, I increase my ability to discern what is resonating from what is not and I become more and more aware of what I already am “

Marco Missinato

I have always silently loved all the people I have met so far in my life, whatever role they were playing,  the good, the bad, or the ugly.

This is because I see wonderful souls in everyone, only temporarily wrapped in sleep that gives them the opportunity to have experiences that in an awakened state would not be possible.

When we eliminate judgment, we find wonderful beauty in all of this.

It is this love that I have felt for humanity since I was a child that inspired me to embrace the creative process of life.

I am therefore a soul and an artist.

Through music, photography and words I crystallize and share my feeling and the awareness that is constantly expanding out of it as I progress in this wonderful journey within the human operating system.

The intent is simply to evolve (remember) and, in this evolution, to be supportive in the awakening process that is unfolding during the intense transition that humanity is experiencing in this delicate moment of its journey.

It is through creativity that I constantly stimulate new awareness in myself.

Then, through the sharing of my creation, I offer, to those who wish it, a way of feeling life from a different point of view and, through it, I extend an invitation to consider the possibility that there is much more in us of what our current human experience has led us to believe.

Each of us plays a fundamental role within the universal creative process and brings with it a unique and indispensable frequency for existence and for everything that is part of the Source itself.

Therefore, I sincerely hope to inspire those who feel a resonance with my offering to embrace their uniqueness and their most intrinsic truth in order to trigger and ignite the recognition of that divinity that resides in each of us, opening the soul to a higher level of conscience and personal freedom.

“I know that you are magical, that you are an extraordinary being. I know inside you there is a great strength and that you have come here on Earth to use this force to become even more extraordinary and, as a reflection of this,transform the world around you, support nature, help humanity and dance free with life. Man and my travel companion, I believe in you … and I love humanity.”

Guest Biography:

Amanda Hainline has been in the world of energy healing for the past 15 years and works with clients all over the globe. She is an intuitive healer, clairvoyant, audiovoyant, clairsentient, medium, channel, and author. She loves bringing the world of energy healing to others through teaching, hands-on healing, and distance work.

Unlike many others in the field, she did not arrive there because she was seeking a spiritual life. It was actually the furthest thing from her mind. She grew up in a church-going family, but was always more science-minded, with a deep connection to nature. She married and began a family in her 20s, but ten years later, she was struggling with carrying the load of motherhood.

Seeking the aid of an energy healer, she had an initial session that reduced her anxiety, but the second session threw her into the spiritual realm instantly. A spontaneous kundalini awakening blew open all of her chakras at the same time and she spent the next six months grappling with her sanity. To her utter shock, three angels arrived in her living room, proclaiming they would teach her how to heal people. After initially challenging them, she ultimately gave in and allowed them to guide her to start healing herself and others.
Today, Amanda Hainline is an emotional freedom mentor, intuitive healer, and author of the book Feel Better in Five Minutes - An Empowering Guide to Gain Control Over Your Emotions. In Feel Better in Five Minutes she shares 79 emotional freedom methods to help others gain freedom from the anxiety, depression, and stress that are rampant today, to help themselves and others.

Amanda previously worked as a business manager and consultant. A mom of two sons, Amanda says her family fueled her passion for all things healthy, from food and supplements to functional medicine. She lives in Austin, Texas.

The songs of her upcoming album (available in November 2021) originated in a longer visit to the US, where she met like-minded artists. They left their stamp subtly on the songs appearing on the album. The themes of the album cover a lot of ground from enjoying the creative impulses life affords us all to its limitations: prison bars that it’s up to each of us to break. It’s about the healing and wild powers of nature and also about sorrow and loss. 

Mala Oreen’s purpose for her musical life’s work? “I would like to inspire people with my music, so they can gather courage to live what makes them happy and share their own talents and passions with the world.” 

It’s a collection of experiences full of hope, new space and open doors.
