She does this through her teaching the difference between man-made legal system vs law of God. This process requires a deep dive into self-discovery, accountability and with a heart of compassion to bring about the change you desire to see in the world. Her process empowers you to mindfully and joyfully play.

The Game of Life. 

Kathleen is dedicated to having positive impact on the world by helping men and woman to question their core be.LIE.f's, becoming open and willing to see life as a Game to be played mindfully.

When you perceive life as a Game, you take control of your life, you find your definite of purpose and your true power. Kathleen's book, workbook and teachings open the portal of the consciousness to gain knowledge of our God given rights and self-reflection. She gives simple "Dash Action" steps to apply to your life.

The Dash Actions are the moments in our lives that are lived, from the day you are born until you transcend that dash on the head stone equals all your moments in life.

Live your Life with purpose, happiness, fun filled days and anchor yourself to fulfill all you desire to be and have in life.

The time has come in The Game of Life where a major change is upon us, and a SHIFT in perception is required. For some this shift has been happening for a while and changes have been taking place, for others it's going to be more like a bucket of cold water being thrown on them.

I'm not sure where you are on the Game, but I am here to assist you. I can't do it for you. No one else can do it for you.

Only you can be the change you desire to see in the world you live in. You have the power to be that change.


Many have gone forth to pave the way and this means not only that it can be done, but they helped to make it easier. Think about an athlete who wants to break a record, someone is behind them following them to set new records all the time. This is to show it can be done and keep improving on the method to accomplish obtaining that goal that record.

Kathleen has been on a journey of self-discovery and finding inner strength. At times she got off the path, took detours. Made some stops that lasted too long in a pit hole that was not serving her highest best self. She had earth shattering times that rocked her to her core. At times it seemed like life threw ice cold water on her to shift her perception of how she saw a person or situation. She gives gratitude for all of her experiences because it made her who she is, which gave her the courage to move forward and to help others do the same.

You are not alone; support is all around you. Most important that support is inside you. As Glenda, the good witch in the Wizard of Oz said to Dorothy "You always had the power, my dear, you just had to learn it for yourself."

Are you ready to unleash the power inside you?

Are you ready to become the hero you were born to be?


The time is now!

Let's play this Game and SHIFT to the next level together.

Guest Occupation: Former State Senator
Guest Biography:

Over 100 years ago my grandparents settled on a farm between the towns of Joes and Cope on the eastern plains of Colorado, where my mother was born and raised. After she met my father, they moved to Denver, where I grew up. I graduated from John F. Kennedy High School and received a BA degree from Rockmont college (now Colorado Christian University) in 1974.

For the past 37 years I have owned and operated a media and video production service. It was my privilege to serve on the Board of Trustees for Colorado Christian University for many years, and to help found Christian Home Educators of Colorado in 1990.

Government has been a strong interest for me for all of my adult life. I was chosen to participate in the Colorado Republican Leadership Program in 2000. In that same year, Governor Owens appointed me to serve on the Colorado Commission on Family Medicine. Two and a half years later I was elected to the Colorado House, where I served until, in 2009, I was appointed to a vacancy in the Colorado State Senate. In 2010 I was elected to my first full term in the Senate and reelected for a second term in 2014.

With a deep love for our beautiful state, I have backpacked all across the Colorado Rockies, including a 700 mile trek along the Continental Divide. In 1997 I fulfilled a lifetime dream of building a solar and wind powered home, which we continue to live in today.

The love that her parents have transmitted to her for cultural expression of both countries is reflected in her passion for music and artistic expression.

Since she was very young, she developed her talent and dedicated herself to taking piano, vocal, acting classes and also showing her heart in her compositions. From an early age she has enjoyed the stage and has always dedicated herself to perfecting her skills by participating in endless plays and live musical performances.

In recent years, thanks to her artistic abilities and dedication, she has received the invitation to be part of important tours, as was the case with Camila, in which for more than a year she toured the United States and all of Latin America, showing that she was born to dedicate herself to the scenarios.

On January 21, 2022, ALISUN presented her first single with which she formally began her solo career in the world of music, a song of her own inspiration in English entitled “HYPOTHERMIA” within the indie/pop genre, in which she worked not only in the composition but also in the arrangements and production, and which will be part of her first studio album.

Guest Biography:


Tess is a Multimedia/Interactive Creator and Producer with 25+ years in the entertainment/technology and philanthropic arenas.

Tess is also the Founder and CEO of GWEN Global LLC a for-profit company dedicated to social impact & positive change in the entertainment arena, which also emcompasses Global Women’s Empowerment Network (a 501c3).

Tess is a best-selling author, award-winning producer/filmmaker/songwriter, as well as a Director, keynote speaker, and social entrepreneur who has dedicated her life to advocating for “Transforming lives through the power of storytelling!”

In 2003, Tess was awarded the Fete d’ Excellence within the Sub-Commission for Human Rights at the United Nations (Geneva, Switzerland) for her work in edu-tainment. Throughout the years, Tess has been honored with multiple awards, including in 2011 she won Mobile Excellence Award for the GWEN Alert, FREE downloadable safety app with video-cloud private storage to protect those in need.

Tess is currently working on an original, scripted series called “The Wright Turn” as co-creator, co-writer and Director.

This multi-cultural cast reflects true stories from the Gwen community in a scripted manner, so that we can continue to put forth healing through storytelling, “trauma to transformation.”



Here is what Tess and Terrah had to say – perhaps you can relate. We got tired of people saying NO! We got tired of an industry that says, “you’re too OLD!” We got tired of waiting for someone to say “Hey ladies, we like you”. So instead of waiting for a seat at the table, we built our own table, pulled up two chairs and went to work.

In 2015 Tess had an opportunity to mentor female millennial directors for a network web-series competition. Although the network’s demographics were women 40-plus, the ideas that were presented were focused on the younger demographics. Realizing there was a void in the stories about women her age, Tess asked to put her hat into the ring and created a project which focused on a 50-year-old woman on her journey to self-rediscovery. In the meantime Terrah, who had made the decision to transition to behind the camera and focus on raising her three children, was

slowly returning from an eight-year acting hiatus. Tess needed an actress and Terrah was eager to act again. The network decided to shelve the competition, so Tess’ project was never submitted. Three years later, Tess and Terrah sat down, restructured the idea and story-line, and gave birth to – The Wright Turn.

The Wright Turn is based on true stories. Interviews with various women and men in the 50 plus club were underway, and knowing how the industry often type-cast actors, The ladies sat down with their actors to find out what types of roles they’ve always wanted to play but have been denied the opportunity. They found a way to incorporate each actors’ ideas, which made the character fun to portray. The series also features product lines by cast members and others as a way to support entrepreneurship.

What is The Wright Turn? It’s not a comedy or a drama, it’s a whole bunch of life’s shit, mushed together, and served to us as our individual journeys. From career/romance/motherhood to homelessness/sex trafficking/mental illness and more.It has been a journey to say the least. The idea of creating, and executing 8-forty-five minute episodes independently, was a surmountable feat, but for these two multi-hyphenates, both directors, writers, producers, editors, actors… It was a challenge worth taking on.
