Guest Occupation: Folk Americana singer-songwriter
Guest Biography:



Folk/Americana singer-songwriter Tara Kelly is putting a new spin on the cosmic country of Kacey Musgraves and Emmylou Harris, with a songwriting style that evokes a darker, more mysterious edge.

Hailing from a rural town in southern New Jersey, Tara Kelly moved to Los Angeles to write and perform, securing a show at the iconic Troubadour venue. Shortly after, Kelly was personally invited by Rhett Miller of Old 97’s to sing his hit duet “Fireflies” with him on a stop in Los Angeles after posting a cover of the song on her Instagram. 

Kelly’s sound is deeply influenced by cosmic American music, fathered by Gram Parsons in the late 1960s and popularized by the likes of Linda Ronstadt and Brandi Carlile. She also draws inspiration from bands like Fleet Foxes, The Civil Wars, and Mandolin Orange; while her songwriting is shaped by the word-play of Kacey Musgraves, the raw vulnerability of James Bay, and the unabashed and fierce-feminine power of Maren Morris. Her lyrics allegorize a gamut of lived experience from heartache to mental health awareness, creating modern folklore that is all her own.

Guest Biography:

Before I died I used to be a marketing executive for a Forbes Fortune 100 company, fly around in private jets, and have a very affluent lifestyle. Then life kicked me in the butt and my life of abundance turned into being homeless, having mental health labels (C-PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Agoraphobic), and an incurable heart condition- leading to losing my son in a custody battle.

That's when I died ~ this was truly a gift. Coming out the other side of this plasma-like experience of death, with full memory recollection. I ‘saw’ the essence of teachings like non-duality, the law of attraction, the metaphysical, and others as all aspects of one power. I saw the heart of them- and ended up writing a book about it.

I also started to see the ‘energy’ behind people and life and found that I could access deepened states of consciousness and from this state create things into the form magnetically and almost magically, people may call that the ‘Law Of Attraction’ I call it 'Conscious Creation!’ and I share with others how they can create via their being-ness.

Later losing my beautiful teenage daughter to a fatal car crash deepened my experience I saw when I died and allowed my heart to stretch even further to let in more light. This light coming through me propelled me to help thousands of other grieving parents beginning with the almost two-thousand attendees at my own daughter's memorial.

Eventually, this was channeled into my book Wholality®: The Missing Link to Love and has helped myself and my husband reach an estimated 1 million people to help them experience more inner unconditional freedom. We do this via our accredited training company based in Hawaii and we run retreats where people from all over the world join us to go back within- back to the universe within. Compassion.

Guest Biography:


In 2013, fourteen year old  Southern California native Vee Nelson burst into the music scene with her debut pop single and subsequent video, “Swing of Love.” 

Refusing to be pigeonholed into the oversaturated young pop star market, Vee set herself apart following the catchy “Swing of Love” by infusing soul, rock, and pop to create a surprisingly sophisticated sound. She then boldly paired this sound with lyrical content that is relatable for all ages, and a voice (both literally and figuratively) that is reminiscent of Billi Holiday and Patsy Cline with the gusto of Celine Dion. 

Her debut EP appropriately titled “Kaleidoscope” showcases the artist’s versatility as a triple threat (singer, songwriter, AND musician). From the soul searching ballad, “Surrender” to the anti-bullying anthem “Stronger Now,” Vee takes her listeners on the universal journey of despair and hope through the eyes of someone who is coming of age, while simultaneously reflecting on her youth. 

The much-anticipated follow up to the Kaleidoscope EP is excepted to be released soon and is already getting huge buzz based on the nostalgic summer feeling single “Crash,” and the titillating single “Dangerous” that is featured on E! Network’s hit reality show Total Bellas. Vee’s trendy and wearable merchandise line is also fueling the hype surrounding her sophomore album and fans everywhere can’t wait to see what’s next! 

You do not want to miss what’s coming up for this rising artist!

Guest Occupation: Former federal judge and shamanic spiritual practitioner of healing
Guest Biography:


Karen Johnson’s 27 year-old son Ben died due to a drug overdose. One night he was at a party with his friends, they got drunk and decided to try heroin for the first time. While all of his friends tried the same drug, Ben was the only one to overdose.  Instead of calling 911 and give Ben the lifesaving help he needed, the dealer spent his time disposing of the drugs and cleaning his place of evidence, all while Ben lay there dying. 

Karen’s fast-paced life and 30-year career as a federal judge came to an abrupt halt as she was enveloped in unrelenting grief for the loss of her son. It was immediately after his death that Ben’s spirit began to communicate with her, and while this level of connection was foreign to Karen, she followed Ben’s nudges and her world has never been the same.  

Having an unsupportive work, that initially allowed Karen only 2-hours off to attend her son’s funeral, she became unable to reconcile her working life with her communications with the spirit world. So Karen did the unexpected, she quit her job, sold her house with all her belongings, and went on a 2½ year journey that took her all over the world.

Led by her son in spirit, Karen’s path took her to a shamanic spiritual practice of healing. 

Karen V. Johnson, JD, is a graduate of Georgetown Law Center (J.D.), a former Fulbright Scholar in Afghanistan, and holds Masters Degrees in Public Health and Public and International Affairs (MPH, MPIA). Karen is a retired federal administrative law judge who practiced criminal and energy law for more than 30 years. She also is a former U.S. Army officer, Major, USAR (inactive). Karen was personally trained by Alberto Villoldo, and is faculty at the Four Winds Society and a Master Practitioner of Energy Medicine.


“Living Grieving: Using Energy Medicine to Alchemize Grief and Loss” (Hay House, July 7, 2021), is her first book.

“In this time of what feels like fast-food spirituality, it’s refreshing to hear from a shamanic kindred sister who has undergone such a powerful journey so fully and has reemerged to reclaim her new life while sharing her wisdom and journey with the world.”
