Guest Biography: 


Carrie Hart was not seeking a spiritual connection when a spiritual entity who called himself Quado began speaking to her.  But the deep wisdom was so apparent and the guidance so much more effective than her busy thinking mind, that she not only started listening, but also began sharing the messages with others.

Carrie was not at all interested in becoming a Pathfinder when a Quado follower asked for a spiritual healing and a shaman named Running Wolf showed up in Carrie’s mind and said:  Yes, we can do that.  And so she did, and a whole world of healing and Power Animals began to open to her.

Carrie had no religious background or interest when Jesus appeared to her during her Usui Reiki Master attunement ceremony in the center of Stonehenge and touched her shoulder, filling her with a pure, intense flood of love unlike any she has experienced before or since.

And after a while, Carrie began to accept that this was how it would be.  As she worked with clients, Spirit would show up and teach her the shaman arts of Power Animal Retrieval and Soul Retrieval, or take her into Past Life Exploration and Energy Healing.  Angels would show up to capture the energy of lightning or to remove the burden of the past and transmute it into light.  Spirit forms from other galaxies would come to teach Prosperity.  And throughout it all, Quado would ensure that everything came from a foundation of love and light, and would offer interpretations where needed.

John Lennon said:  Life is what happens while we’re busy making other plans.  And Carrie’s plans were unfolding nicely, as she continued with her career in IT, advancing from computer programmer to project manager and then to CIO and Vice President of a Fortune 50 company, all while she was also pursuing her love of singing and songwriting.

And then, one day, it was time to leave the corporate world behind.

The way that Carrie’s spirituality developed has given her a special point of view:

  • She has developed her own techniques of meditation. In fact, she prefers what she calls an Empowerment, a combination of meditation, visualization and energy work that she does live for members four times every week.
  • She has her own brand of shaman work, which does not imitate an older culture but harkens instead directly to Spirit and which is completely based in love and light.
  • She is deeply connected to Spirit and the Oneness, but has no particular concern with what happens after we die, focusing instead on what we can be and do during this brief, precious life of our to create joy and love, fulfillment and meaning.
  • She loves to embrace the mystery and does not expect a rational explanation for how things happen. In fact, she believes that the way things truly work is beyond the comprehension of our limited mental powers.
  • She believes that ultimately everything is within us and that the most important thing we can do is develop our own deep core of power and radiate our unique energy, even as we also know ourselves as one and inseparable with all that is.
  • As she says, our purpose lies in our uniqueness, but our power lies in our deep connection to the Oneness.

Carrie offers private and group sessions to strengthen this inner core and use spirituality to promote a beautiful life.  She also has music, books and unique websites you may explore.

Carrie continues to accept the gifts of Spirit as they come, when they come and however they come.  Her latest adventure is to speak and sing in an unidentified language that has come from Spirit to her, something she suspects is from an indigenous culture of the Americas that is no longer existent.

She has also recently published her latest book, Earth Survival Guide, Why You are Probably From Another Planet and How to Survive This One.  The first 50 pages are a humorous look at the crazy society that is Earth, from the point of view of someone who can’t possibly be from around here, since it clearly makes no sense whatsoever.  The next 100 pages propose what we might do to save the Earth and ourselves, featuring the help of the Power Animals and including a story of their origins.

Carrie looks forward to the next thing that Spirit will bring her way and to continuing to share it all as it unfolds.

Guest Biography: 


Andrew Leonard. Clarinetist. Teaching Artist.

In the fifth grade I told my parents, “All I need in college is a decent place to be noisy and play clarinet.” Since then I’ve been searching for the notes, people, venues, and music that feel like home. After graduating Juilliard’s Pre-College Division and USC’s Thornton School of Music, I’ve performed on three continents and I’m now in LA to take in California’s diversity and possibility. I love chamber music, and I’m currently working with the Symbiosis Ensemble and Midnight Winds.

In an effort to gain further notoriety as a soloist and chamber musician, I’ve earned honors in the Torranace, Redlands, and Peninsula Music Festival concerto competitions, I was semi-finalist in the Midland-Odessa competition in Texas and I received a grant from the Santa Barbara Foundation. I’ve recorded for numerous soundtracks and performed with the International Bachakademie, New York String Seminar, Santa Monica Symphony, Intimate Opera Company, San Bernardino Symphony, and the Burbank Philharmonic among others.

I also express my passion for music through my teaching practice. I’ve written programs for the LA Phil, Harmony Project, the Music Center, USC Thornton School of Music, The Orchestras of Pasadena, and The DaCamera Society. I’m also a member of the applied music faculty at Mt. St. Mary’s College.

Life Changes Show with Filippo Voltaggio
Show Host: 
Filippo Voltaggio

Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!

A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.

In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.

The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
