Susan Crossman is a veteran writer whose businesses are built around the privilege of helping people communicate more clearly so they can consciously build relationships, achieve goals and generate revenue.

Through Crossman Communications and Content with Clarity, Susan and her team develop online content marketing programs that might include blogging, social media marketing and email marketing, and newsletters, white papers, and eBooks.

Through The Awakening Author, Susan provides book coaching and editing services that support business owners to the publication of books that enhance our understanding of who we are and who we are here to be.

An enthusiastic supporter of writing with clarity, Susan is the traditionally-published author of four books: a novel about domestic abuse (Shades of Teale), a collection of short stories about awakenings (Passages to Epiphany), a writer’s companion to help people write with more impact (The Write Way), and an Amazon best-selling book that teaches readers how to use their online content to build their brand and generate more leads (Content Marketing Made Easy – Why You Need It / How To Do It).

Business Description: Crossman Communications helps conscious creators use their business stories to enhance their brand through social engagement, digital content creation and book writing projects.

I love working with people to uncover the brilliance of their own stories. Whether we’re developing content for their website or I’m supporting them to the completion of the book only they can write, it makes me really happy to be an expansive part of their creative process. My clients typically feel a shiver of awe as they see themselves and their work through my eyes, and it is humbling for me to be able to help amplify their message and their work through the medium of the written word. There is a lot of magic involved in landing a story from the Outer Dimensions—and it’s fun!
I imagine we could enjoy a more peaceful and harmonious world if everyone were able to express their truth clearly, and with compassion and understanding. Communication can be incredibly healing. So, I feel the work I do has an important role in unlocking peace on Earth, and I’m grateful for the fulfillment the entire process brings me!

I came into this life “LOUD” and what I didn’t know when I was a little girl was that this made people uncomfortable. So guess what I did… I dimmed my light so others would be comfortable around me. I did that for a very long time. Now, into my 60’s, I like to sprinkle LOUD love bombs into your life so that you can remember where you were dimmed so you can shine that light again. How do I do this? I like to host small groups for women so we can remind ourselves of our awesomeness. Internally shifting towards more freedom to be oneself. If you would like some assistance in this area so you can come home yourself, I would love to have a chat with you.

Monisha Mittal assists creatives, visionaries, and heart-centered warriors find their way towards a life of fuller expression, of their true hearts’ desires, while navigating challenges of resources, relationships, and times of big transitions. If you are ready to go deeper into your heart, to live from your desires, and connect with how the challenges and conflicts you face represent real opportunities for fulfillment and freedom as a human on a journey on this planet, then One-on-One Illumination Sessions with Monisha are for you.

No matter the level of success or frustration we’ve experienced, most of us were never taught to “DO” us. Instead, navigating relationships and responsibilities at work, home, or communities, we tend to compartmentalize our existence. We don’t just manage our “shoulds” and “have tos” but also our deep dreams and desires. We limit possibilities for ourselves and others. All of this keeps us from accessing our internal guidance to find our way.

One-on-one sessions with Monisha illuminate the unique choices available to each of us on our journey for expanded living from the frequency of unconditional love, no matter what the circumstance. Combining wit and wisdom, grit and grace, and compassion with practicality, Monisha activates and aligns each client’s multiple intelligences: Mind, Heart, Body and Soul. Clients experience a congruence in their whole being: a deep coming home. They find a clear, accelerated connection to their own light, wisdom, and resources: navigating their way forward with greater personal power, purpose and ability to play with the people and problems in their life. Monisha has helped client communicate more clearly and honestly at home and at work, in essays and in writing books. Clients become more engaged in their lives and live more abundantly as who they are.

I grew up put down by those in Authority because my heart and mind functioned differently, both the way I needed to express myself and the outcomes I desired. Because I saw this also happen to people I loved, I felt how each of us comes into this world with a unique essence and a divine desire to express it. I committed to helping people listen from the truth of their hearts, where the essence of their expression and desires live. This commitment shines through all my professional endeavors: my start in community economic development, as a senior community investment adviser at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, and as a management consultant. Bringing out people’s innate expression is a way I serve and play with the energy in my heart. This ‘play’ led me to co-found the first ever literary festival in the U.S. for South Asian writing and to support Heal My Voice, a non-profit empowering women and girls to greater leadership through transformative story-telling.
As early as 8 years old, I developed an acuity for listening to people and their conflicts at multiple levels: from spoken words on the surface, the emotions and energy underneath, and ultimately to what the person’s heart was saying in that moment. I didn’t know it but I was listening from the frequency of the heart, connected to the Universal frequency of unconditional love. In college, and later in the workplace, I routinely experienced peers seeking me out to discuss life challenges—as children, spouses and parents. I helped them get in touch with their emotions honestly, and connected them to a deeper wisdom. My formal education, a BS in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania, and a Master of Public Policy from Harvard, developed my left-brain systems thinking. Over the last few years, I expanded my “right-brain” dimensions of perceiving information working with many extraordinary practitioners. An accredited Sacred Depths Coach, I am learning to access Body WisdomTM through InterPlay.

I spent the first part of my life striving and pushing myself to “get it right,” to do it all on my own and to be someone I was not. In trying to prove or earn my worth, I put my body under so much stress that it resulted in dysfunction and disease.

My body was telling me all along that I was not living in alignment with the truth of who I am but I didn’t know to listen.

Then, over the course of 2 years, I felt inspired to take a different track for my life. I let go of my practice as a Physiotherapist and allowed myself to listen to my Higher Wisdom and threw myself into some programs with Jennifer Hough and the Wide Awakening that enhanced the abilities that were hidden. Since then, I have come into my heart more.

Now my body is my best friend! I tune in and listen to the messages I am being given and I no longer push/strive my way through life. My body lets me know when I have strayed back into survival land which allows me to choose differently and return to flow.

The pain and tension in my body have subsided substantially and my system is much calmer. We are partners in the journey of this lifetime.

As I have come to be in my heart, even more, my body has become a conduit for channeling light language, the language of love. The codes from this light language activate our cells at the frequency of love and my clients can sense the activation in their bodies, feeling peace, joy, and love.

I am now embracing and honoring the gift that I am and helping bridge others back to their hearts, to come home to themselves and live the truth of who they are.

My clients experience more peace, freedom, happiness, and love as they live with enhanced self-awareness, acceptance, and empowerment.

I offer complimentary clarity sessions to people who are done living in a stressed state and are ready to live with more grace, flow, and joy.

I invite you to visit my website at www.freedomfromwithin.net for my contact information or email [email protected] to book your session. It’s time to be who we really are and express that into the world from our hearts!

I am a Financial Advisor turned Yoga Therapist, working with individuals and businesses to teach Resilience and Stress Management using the tools I’ve gained in my personal and professional life: meditation, breathwork, and stillness. I work with individuals and groups/business to mastermind best practices and alternative avenues for success while eliminating stress and increasing productivity.

I am a graduate of the nationally recognized Beaumont School of Yoga Therapy, a recipient of the Spirited Woman Award, member of International Association of Yoga Therapists, Yoga Service Council, and Holistic Health Coach.

I grew up in a small midwestern town with strict fundamentalist parents in an oppressive family environment. I was Constantly told that I would never amount to anything, but I, for some reason, persisted in believing in herself. i fought my way out of that negative family environment, and graduated from the University of Michigan in the music and fine arts program. i was happily married with three children and a growing successful career as a financial advisor at a major firm when suddenly my career was cut short and i suffered a nearly fatal cerebral hemorrhage. I was told that would I would never see again, never drive, and never live a normal life, and I was discharged from the hospital and sent home.

With the help of my husband and loving children and friends, I overcame that illness, battling back by healing herself on her own terms, using the techniques I use now of healing others in my yoga therapy practice. Breathing for calmness, we restrain the brain to recover health, mental and physical stability. Some of these techniques are not new – they are ancient time-honored, simply used in a new way.

I went on to become certified as a yoga instructor, and further as a medically/clinically trained Yoga Therapist with an extra 1000 hours of training and in-class experience, and I have since opened my own yoga teaching and healing practice. I am now a Therapeutic yoga instructor, meditation teacher and a certified Holistic Health Coach. I am a graduate of the nationally recognized Beaumont School of Yoga Therapy, a recipient of the Spirited Woman Award, and I teach yoga therapy and the Mind-Body connection at a major medical institution. It is my life’s mission is to help others discover and learn how to overcome life’s obstacles by healing themselves.

I teach and support my clients through private sessions (phone or Zoom), virtual group programs, audio programs, and retreats.

Learn more about my mind-body-spirit methodology, the Therapeutic Meditation Process™ (T.M.P.), and the 10 Keys to a Vibrant Body & Abundant Life™ with my complimentary gift “The Vibrant Body & Abundant Life Starter Kit.

I’m Tanya Penny, OTR, Author of Connect with The Divine You, Vibrant Body & Abundant Life Coach. I teach and support you to fully love yourself, and heal past trauma & chronic illness using my mind-body-spirit methodology. For 25 years of my life, I experienced anxiety, depression, pain, and carried extra weight.

In 2004, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. That was my wake-up call that there were some deeper issues in need of love, attention, and release, that medications, lifestyle changes, and medical interventions couldn’t touch. It wasn’t easy (I had to peel back the layers and really look into my self) and it wasn’t quick (it took years), but I healed. I believe there is a place and a time for doctors and Western medicine, but if you are 100% committed to healing all areas of your life, your soul is called to go on a journey as well.

Now, I teach the Therapeutic Meditation Process™ (T.M.P.) and the 10 Keys to a Vibrant Body & Abundant Life™, trusting that it will find its way into the hearts and lives of those who need it, and are ready to take the journey.

I am passionate about empowering you to discover and create the life you want, to live fully in your Heart, and for you to feel the freedom to express who you ARE. I have a private energy healing practice, lead monthly Heart activation gatherings, and offer experiential workshops.

My journey with you is very heart focused and experiential. Your heart knows the way home! Through activating your Heart’s inner wisdom and knowing, we co-create new potentials together allowing you to experience:

  • greater harmony, balance and freedom at the cellular level as old patterns and limiting beliefs are transmuted and transcended
  • peace
  • clarity
  • deeper embodiment and expanding consciousness
  • Being your beauty and magnificence
  • thriving vs surviving
  • increased creativity
  • empowering tools to move forward

The transformational energy and shifts that occur create real change in your life that also affect real shifts in the outer world. The greatest gift you give is to BE truly yourself…to shine your brilliant, magnificent Light and share it with the world.

Are you ready to experience your Heart? To live with greater purpose, vitality, creativity, and LOVE? To be the open-Hearted master of your life? Can you hear your Heart calling? If yes, I would love to connect with you. I would be honoured to be a witness to the beautiful unfolding of YOU.

Through my own beautiful, unfolding spiritual journey, I AM called to BE my authentic Self in service to humanity. Three strong guide posts that have encouraged me to follow my heart and passions are: a knowing that I AM more than my physical body, a feeling that God is within, and a deep connection to the land.

Freedom and love hold deep meaning and inspire me to move forward even through the darkest moments. Earlier in my life, it was the strength and connection I felt from these guide posts that inspired me through a courageous self-healing journey from traumatic abuse experienced in childhood. On this journey I learned to transmute and transcend the limiting patterns and beliefs I had created. I see myself beyond the identities of victim or survivor. I am empowered and free to express the love that I AM, embodying my beautiful, compassionate Heart.

This amazing journey and my passion have guided me to share and help others also achieve greater freedom and experience the richness and expansiveness of life. I assist others to live in their heart, feel their innate joy, and connect with the awe, wonder and the excitement of expressing their creative desires. Inspirational messages from Spirit are interconnected with my deep connection to the land; this combination infuses grounding energy, a stillness and beauty, rejuvenation, and upliftment not only for me, but for all my clients. I am a Certified Advanced Energy Healer and Teacher (The Inner Focus School for Soul Directed Advanced Energy Healing); an Advanced Practitioner in Ancestral and Forgiveness Clearing (John Newton); and a Certified Awakening Coach (Jennifer Hough).

In short, I AM here to shine my light! I know that my desire to express my passion for life, and to create through the wonders of this human form from the depths of my essence, is far greater than any fear! I hold my journey in deep gratitude, compassion and love, and I would be honoured to support you in yours.


“Tanya is an incredible healer. Her ability to hold sacred space and unconditionally love makes the healings she facilitates powerful and transformational. I would recommend Tanya to anyone who is wanting to do deep healing.”
– C.A., Rtcmp, Rac. Bas

“Healings with Tanya has opened my heart to a new understanding of myself and God within. Through her patience and loving heart, I have hit core issues and old patterns and my life is truly opened to my divinity …I live a life of joy and harmony and much gratitude.”
– B.A.

I’m based in stunning central Italy, between the Mountains and the Sea, known as the Green Heart of Italy. Solo and group retreats to reset, refresh and reconnect. Held here in the green heart of Italy, between the mountains and the sea and other stunning tranquil locations around the world.

After living in Canada for 10 years at the end of 2012, I moved back to the UK with just 2 suitcases, 2 divorces, $2,000 in my pocket and my wonder dog Charlie!

I started my spiritual journey and focused on building my holistic practice back in 2003, offering Reflexology, Reiki & Massage naturally evolving into coaching, which now includes retreats and programs.

Like most of us I have experienced many obstacles, I realised my biggest obstacle was myself! I looked outside myself for things to be different and waiting for things to change, until I realised it was me that needed to change.

I have had the privilege to have been taught and mentored by leading experts, including the amazing Jennifer Hough, teachers and coaches in transformation, metaphysics, spirituality, neuroscience, coaching methods and business.

I have full circled my life and now live my dream life, with my amazing partner Dominic, and our dog Poppy. We live in a stunning rural area in central Italy, enjoying a wonderful fulfilling life, full of play, laughter, love and connection.

Working with women of all ages who are in the shadows feeling limited, to realize they can be unlimited. Our work is done through one on one sessions, webinars, and workshops to show there is another way of being, because we want everyone to come out of the shadows and play in the unlimited light.

Our work is also for young girls that feel unlimited now … because we want to work with them and pave the path so they stay playing in the unlimited sunshine.

I was born and raised in Ontario, Canada and I’m the founder of Angela Unlimited, an organization that helps women to find their voice, to live their fullest lives, and to help them to emerge from the shadows. I’m, also a designated Certified Management Accountant, and started my own Accounting practice in the 90’s, which focused on providing financial services in the Not-For-Profit sector – specifically the violence against women and children sector. Recently I’ve turned to my true passion. Using my voice and my heart to assist women to know, in their hearts, that they are special, and it is okay to be seen, heard, and to laugh out loud.

I created this venture as I spent most of my life living in the shadows. You know the ones where little girls are supposed to be seen and not heard. Where you hide and your inner chatter gets so loud that it’s deafening. Yes, I spent a good portion of my life morphing and changing into what others wanted, based on the messages I internalized. It truly got to a point where I was so buried under layers heaped on by society, family, and expectations, that the sparkle inside me was almost extinguished.

Angela Unlimited grew out of my journey to reclaim my life from the shadows I was living in. As I embarked on that journey it became very clear that I wanted to pay my journey forward to women of all ages. I want to be that someone that I could have used along the way. That someone who helps you to know, “Being YOU is okay … actually, it’s better than okay”.

My desire is to share with women that they can live a life of unlimited joy, and that we need each other along the way. I want to be that coach, mentor, trusted ear that I could have used throughout my journey for you.
