JACQUI RUIZ
EMOTIONS SPECIALIST

Her journey into self discovery and enlightenment began while working as a mortician. With 13 years in the funeral industry, facing death daily was both challenging and enlightening. Realizing the importance of being loved and giving love, the nurturer in her came to life. Her studies in the work of death and dying, and emotional intelligence healing brought me to developing a unique blend of emotional work and creativity.

She likes to think of herself as someone with a no nonsense approach to love. Meaning, she will always stand for peoples greatness in a way that some may or may not find comfortable, however always from LOVE. As if  like a sister, loving you unconditionally while openly, honestly expressing what isn’t serving you. People walk away after engaging with her knowing they are loved, feeling like they have someone they can count on for honest and loving interaction.

Her vision for the world is that every individual own their true self; walking, talking, and expressing themselves freely and unapologetically.

He discovered that he could call on the many names of God and awaken the divine essence within.

Later, he connected his roots in chanting to the Hebrew prayers of ancient Judaism, and eventually discovered the beauty of medicine music from the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas. Through chanting he paints a mosaic with those voices from around the world, each sharing the the same message; love is one and God is hiding in the heartbeat.
