Lisa Marie Goodson aka Nubia I, is the Founder and Director of the BLACKBERRY BEAUTY Transformative Academy, dedicated to the health and wellness of women and the men who love them. She is an internationally known wellness coach, raw and living food chef, womb yoga instructor, dancer and poet.

Lisa holds an Associates Degree from Laney College in Arts and Humanities and a Bachelors Degree from California Institute of Integral Studies. She is the proud mother of one and resides in Oakland with her daughter and devoted spouse.
“Healing is my life” is not just a slogan, but a reality for Lisa Marie. She noticed that after stressful times in her life she would experience abnormalities like chronic indigestion, heart palpitations, abnormal pap smears, menstrual problems, recurring yeast infections, heavy bleeding and other womb issues. Doctors would typically prescribe drugs or antibiotics. Out of frustration she decided to take her healing into her own hands, becoming vegetarian and later an organic vegan raw foodist. She started to meditate and began to feel better, but her issues were not resolved until she understood the mind/body connection to healing. She decided to explore this notion, studying under spiritual masters that vibrated the kind of health she desired. After more than 20 years on this joyous journey she knew that doctors couldn’t help her any better than she was willing to help herself. Now, she bathes in hot springs, has traveled the world learning from spiritual masters, dancing traditional healing dances, participating in sacred rites of passages, as well as taking salt baths and using essential oils and crystals to facilitate healing. Because of this journey Lisa Marie healed herself of all afflictions, living the life she always imagined, filled with love, joy and prosperity. Her mission is to share what was so generously given to her: to love and help women globally heal from the stresses of being a woman in this society.

SHILOH SOPHIA lives life as a great adventure! A renaissance woman who communicates her philosophy through paintings, poetry, teachings and entrepreneurship. For 25 years she has dedicated her soul work to the study and practice of creativity as a path of healing which provides access to consciousness. As a curator and gallery owner, she has represented her own work, as well as hundreds of women artists. By the age of 40 she achieved incredible success through being in the top ten percent of sales for contemporary artists in the U.S. Her prolific intuitive painting process led to a desire to teach and provided the foundation for the groundbreaking work on how Intentional Creativity® can give voice to the soul. Her method of ‘creating with mindfulness’ has reached tens of thousands of students who have gained insight into the hidden self.
Her work is taught widely, at Universities in MA and Phd programs, the United Nations CSW, and by hundreds of Certified Teachers and Coaches. At the core of her work is a belief that the right to self express is one of the most basic human rights – “We have a right to know how to access what we think, feel, believe and to express it in our lives”. Her life path is a spiritual practice, and an offering that was awakened with the feminine Divine. Her research dives into the exploration of the right/left brain connection with the heart and re-inventing personal archetypes as gateways to liberation. “When we find freedom from the trauma of our stories, we can invent our own legends, and do the sacred work of organizing our consciousness.”
She is the creator of seven books, as well as a community leader. Having been trained by her mother Caron McCloud the poet, and Sue Hoya Sellars the artist, she brought her gifts of language and image into form through founding the Intentional Creativity® Guild, Cosmic Cowgirls®, Power Creatives TV and Color of Woman®. She lives and works at Cosmic Cowgirls Ranch in Sonoma California which provides education both in house and online, reaching over 25k subscribers a month. She can be found most days having tea with her muses discussing quantum physics and celebrating revelations of the heart.
GARY SINCLAIR first became interested in Mind, Body, and Spirit work after he made a full recovery from Multiple Sclerosis (MS), which he struggled with for over 14 years.

In 2014, Gary’s many years of helping others to heal memories and his research about healing methodologies birthed one of the most revolutionary energy healing techniques ever to be discovered. This simple, yet amazingly powerful healing technique was tested in January 2016 on over 2,200 memories plus the memories of PTSD patients and had a 100% success rate in a medical peer review.
This healing work is called Soul Link and Gary now travels the globe sharing his discovery with those seeking freedom from memories that have bound them for a lifetime. His training goes all the way to the other-than-conscious level for energy healing.
