Guest Occupation: Hypnotherapist, Past-life Regressionist, Spiritual Coach, Spiritual Event Organizer
Guest Biography:

Kathryn Hand is a Clinical Hypnotherapist who specialises in Past Life Regression and Life Between Lives therapy. Starting her career in the high-powered world of investment banking, Kathryn was involved in communications, media and corporate events for global companies in both Sydney and London. In addition to this, Kathryn has actively been marketing, managing and promoting local and small businesses over the last 15 years.

Whilst reading Dr Michael Newton’s ‘Journey of Souls’, Kathryn had a deeply profound experience which led her to ultimately fulfil her calling and make the life-changing career move as a hypnotherapist. She is proudly one of an elite, global group of 250 spiritual regressionists certified by Dr Michael Newton.

The journey of searching for evidence of our immortal existence began for Kathryn after her 6th grade teacher introduced her to the metaphysical - it has been a consuming interest ever since that has evolved to an ongoing discovery of consciousness.  She is passionate in helping people achieve a greater understanding of their own consciousness and connecting them to their highest, immortal self.

After being diagnosed with cancer, Kathryn discovered the importance of developing a health consciousness.  The day before she was scheduled for a double mastectomy, Kathryn intuitively felt there had to be a better way to healing than having both her breasts removed and damaging chemotherapy.  She cancelled the surgery and watched a documentary series that Mick had purchased, The Truth About Cancer.  It gave her hope for the giant leap of faith she had taken.  Kathryn and Mick embarked on natural therapies and their passion for plant and energy medicine has seen the birth of their latest project, the Plant & Energy Medicine Symposium.

Ten Years After Legendary Bassist Leo Lyons Special Guest on Interviewing the Legends
Guest Occupation: bass guitarist, songwriter and record producer
Guest Biography:

L   E   O

SONGWRITER-PRODUCER

LEGENDARY BASSIST

WITH

TEN YEARS AFTER

Born in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire in November 1943, Leo became a professional musician at the age of 16 and as a founder member of the band Ten Years After has been an on-stage eyewitness to some of the most pivotal moments in Rock and Roll history.

In 1962 with his band The Jaybirds along with guitarist Alvin Lee he performed at The Star Club, Hamburg, Germany where only a week earlier The Beatles had polished up their act. Leo was hired to play in the club's house band with Tony Sheridan and yet still found time to guest at the Top Ten Club with guitarist Albert Lee. Like The Beatles, The Jaybirds returned home to England, made the move from their hometown to London and secured their first recording contract with legendary record producer Joe Meek.

From 1963 to 1966, as well as playing and managing The Jaybirds, Leo worked as a session musician, toured as a sideman with pop acts of the day, appeared in a play in London's West End and played a residency with poll winning British Jazz Guitarist Denny Wright.

In 1967 with a name change to Ten Years After, a residency at London's famous Marquee Club and a debut album out on Deram Records, the band were soon to build up a huge following in Europe. Fillmore West and Fillmore East founder Bill Graham heard a copy of the band's first album and immediately sent a letter offering to book Ten Years After into his historic venues in San Francisco and New York. They were also one of the first rock groups to be part of the Newport Jazz Festival. At Newport and on tour TYA performed with Nina Simone, Roland Kirk, Miles Davis and other jazz legends barnstorming across the US.

In August of the same year their now legendary encore " I'm Goin' Home" was captured on film at The Woodstock Music and Arts Festival, exposing their jazz blues rock amalgam to an even larger audience of movie goers who were blown away by the intensity of the band's performance when the academy award winning documentary was released. Their ten-minute appearance in the film is an acknowledged highlight and established Ten Years After a place in rock history. The band's albums are still available, and all have reached Gold or Platinum status.

Leo has produced records for UFO, Magnum, Waysted, Procol Harum, Frankie Miller, Richard and Linda Thompson, Brigitte St John, John Martin, Kevin Coyne, Sassafras, MotorHead, Hatfield and The North, The Bogie Boys, The Winkies, Chris Farlowe, Chevy and many more.
In 2003 Ten Years After reformed yet again, this time with new guitarist singer Joe Gooch replacing Alvin Lee, and for the past seven years, aside from writing and producing, Leo has recorded three CD's and toured the world with Ten Years After.

Leo's not the kind of person who lets the grass grow under his feet and in the Summer of 2010 together with TYA guitarist Joe Gooch he formed 'Hundred Seventy Split'; a new, exciting, high energy Blues/Rock power trio showcasing their combined talents. The pair initially formed a song-writing partnership to write for TYA and have continued writing together ever since. The result was their debut CD 'The World Won't Stop' . . .

Leo and Joe resigned from Ten Years After at the end of 2013 and to celebrate a new beginning Hundred Seventy Split released a new CD, simply titled, HSS, followed by The Road, two years later.
Their live shows have already proved popular with TYA fans. HSS play TYA classics alongside new material in their shows.
'Hundred Seventy Split' was formed to play music that rocks outside of the TYA box.

A BRILLIANT ORCHESTRATED TRIBUTE TO 

ELP LEGEND KEITH EMERSON

Robert Berry has managed to survive in the treacherous minefield that is the music business and flourished as a performer, songwriter and producer. It seems he's done it all. While he may be best known as the vocalist/bass player in the ELP spinoff, 3, with Keith Emerson and Carl Palmer, Berry impressive list of credits include a stint fronting Ambrosia, and long running affiliations with Alliance, December People, and the Greg Kihn Band.  Berry has released 5 solo albums, contributed to a number of high-profile tribute albums and has an impressive track record in the studio.

2017 was noteworthy for some major efforts. Early in the years, Berry, on bass and lead vocals joined with Terry Brock (GIANT, STRANGEWAYS) on lead vocals, Gary Pihl (BOSTON, SAMMY HAGAR, ALLIANCE) on guitar, and Matt Starr (ACE FREHLEY, MR. BIG) on drums, to form ALL 41.They released the band's debut album, "World's Best Hope".  Simultaneously, he mounted a dedicated effort to complete his collaboration with Keith Emerson on the long awaited 3 follow up.  That album, which took shape in 2016, was nearly shattered with the news of Keith Emerson tragic death.  Ultimately and as a tribute to the friendship of Emerson and Berry, it somewhat painfully got back on track and The Rules Have Changed on Frontiers Music SRL was released earlier this year.

Guest Occupation: Author/Information Activist
Guest Biography:

In A Lie Too Big to Fail, longtime Kennedy researcher (of both JFK and RFK) Lisa Pease lays out, in meticulous detail, how the Los Angeles Police Department silenced witnesses with evidence of conspiracy; how evidence was deliberately altered and, in some instances, destroyed; and how the justice system and the media failed to present the truth of the case to the public. Pease reveals how the trial was essentially a sham, and how the prosecution did not dare to follow where the evidence led.

A Lie Too Big to Fail asserts the idea that a government can never investigate itself in a crime of this magnitude. Was the convicted Sirhan Sirhan a willing participant? Or was he a mind-controlled assassin? It has fallen to independent researchers like Pease to lay out the evidence in a clear and concise manner, allowing readers to form their theories about this event. Pease places the history of this event in the context of the era and provides shocking overlaps between other high-profile murders and attempted murders of the time.

Lisa Pease goes further than anyone else in proving who likely planned the assassination, who the assassination team members were, and why Kennedy was deemed such a threat that he had to be taken out before he became President of the United States.

Lisa Pease is a lifelong information activist and a researcher. When she discovered that the Los Angeles Police Department’s records of the Robert Kennedy assassination were available at her local library, she spent many lunch hours, nights and weekends pouring through the files on microfilm to research that bizarre case. Lisa Pease co-editor and publisher of Probe Magazine (1995-2000). Lisa has been a featured speaker at several seminars in Dallas and Los Angeles. Lisa Pease is also the co-editor with James DiEugenio of The Assassinations (2003) that covers the deaths of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Robert Kennedy, and Malcolm X.

Dr. Ryan Robinson
Guest Occupation: Chiropractic Physician and Functional Medicine provider
Guest Biography:

Dr. Ryan Robinson is from Kenosha, WI. He has his undergraduate degree in Exercise Sciences and his Doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic. He is a Chiropractic Physician and Functional Medicine provider. He is the sole owner of Fundamental Health, a family practice with an emphasis on working with athletes.

Fundamental Health is located right off of the intersection of Hwy 34 and Route 59 in Aurora, IL. This office takes a unique whole body holistic approach to healthcare by utilizing chiropractic and functional medicine.

The doctor aims to fix patients physical ailments via chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Ryan doesn’t just focus on the spine but instead is focused on “building the person from the ground up” by addressing leg length discrepancies and working on the feet so that each patient has a solid foundation to support the rest of the body. Only by addressing these underlying issues can a person remain pain-free. This practice can help with: neck pain, back pain, shoulder restriction or pain, headaches, sprained ankles, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, tendonitis, knee pain, foot pain, bunions, and many other conditions.

What is functional medicine? Functional medicine is the future of healthcare (in my biased opinion)! Functional medicine is a patient-focused approach focused on the underlying causes of many chronic, debilitating and hard to treat diseases. Healthcare is focused on symptom control and very rarely looks at the causes of known conditions. Functional medicine can help prevent and detect diseases earlier. Through the use of advanced, specific lab testing, the physician can treat the pathology at the core of the problem. Functional medicine can help with: improving digestion, absorption and utilization of nutrients, addressing nutritional deficiencies, improving bowel elimination, brain fog, bone health, autoimmune conditions, weight loss, improving immune function, reducing oxidative stress, minimizing inflammation, improve blood sugar regulation, improve energy, combat stress, enhance metabolism, balance hormones and much more!

INGEZ RAMEAU

Ingez Rameau’s passion for performing goes back to her early childhood when she was cast in an Estonian play while growing up in post-WWII Displaced Persons Camps in Germany.

While living in Europe, Ingez was fortunate to have been exposed to countless different nationalities and languages which helped shape the woman she is today. Her life has been full of diversity, experience and travel and she continues to express her creativity through various art forms. She speaks, reads and writes German, Estonian and French.

She has appeared as herself in several movies, including “Dave,” “Independence Day,” “Murder at 1600,” “Rising Sun,” and the CBS series, “Murphy Brown.” Clift and her late husband, Tom Brazaitis, who was a columnist for the Cleveland Plain Dealer, wrote two books together, “War Without Bloodshed: The Art of Politics” (Scribner, 1996), and “Madam President: Shattering the Last Glass Ceiling (Scribner, 2000). Madam President is available in paperback (Routledge Press). Clift’s book, “Founding Sisters,” is about the passage of the 19th amendment giving women the vote (John Wiley & Sons, 2003). Her recent book, “Two Weeks of Life: A Memoir of Love, Death and Politics” (Basic Books, 2008) is about the loss of her husband together with an examination of how we deal with death in America. “Selecting a President,” written with Matthew Spieler (Thomas Dunne Books), published in 2012, examines the process that for all its flaws is better than the alternative.
