Constance Lynn:

Constance Lynn has been devoted to holistic health for self, individuals and Earth for over 30 years. In 1991 she worked on her first organic farm and discovered the gifts of eating from the land and connecting with plants as our relatives, as well as our allies in healing. Currently living in Boulder, Utah, she tends to a large garden and is co-creating a homestead based on Permaculture design principles.

Constance began offering herbal remedies through Night Raven Wild and Organic herbs ten years ago. She hand collects medicinal plants from her garden, mountain and desert and then prepares salves, creams, tinctures and teas to offer the healing gifts of the plants to others.

Certified as a yoga teacher and therapeutic yoga practitioner for 20 years, Constance inspires her students through interconnecting the ancient tradition of yoga with wild nature and soul. She also has extensive experience with organic/whole food nutrition with an influence from an Ayurvedic perspective, and cooking for retreats, co-ops and cafes.

Matt Cochran:

Matt has trained extensively in dreamwork with Anita Doyle and with the Animas Valley Institute. In 2006 he received an MA in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute where he focused on Dreaming, Eco-Psychology and Ecological/Community Liberation psychologies. There Matt had a chance to study with James Hillman, Marion Woodman and Stephen Aizenstadt among others. Since 2010 Matt has been running dream groups in Boulder, Utah and taught interns dreamwork at True Nature Farm for three seasons.



Haylee Haning Apperson:

Haylee entered the food industry in her early 20’s in a search to heal herself from some health ailments she had been struggling with since childhood. What she found in the end after spending a month at an Ayurvedic Ashram in India and apprenticing with a holistic nutritionist was that whole organic foods or “Clean Eating” as she refers to it, was the ticket to her health, happiness and wellbeing. Her teacher Pati Reiss helped in guiding her on a path to growing, sourcing and cooking with whole organic foods. Now with a husband and two children by her side, nourishment is at the top of the priority list. Haylee and her husband Garin, own Magnolia’s Street Food, an outdoor eating establishment in Boulder, Utah. Their goal is to share and create beautiful food through nature’s purist form.


Erika Bresselsmith:

Erika grew up in Germany. After 4 years of traveling in her 20’s she felt a deep longing to live her life in a more meaningful way and the longing for self-realization. She felt the call to go to India where she met her spiritual teacher who initiated her into Surat Shabd Yoga – the yoga of the Celestial Sound Current.

On returning home she dedicated her life to her spiritual practice and lived for 20 years in different Retreat Centers of her teacher – Germany, India and USA. Her life was filled with devotional practices – meditation, satsang, selfless service like working in organic gardens, orchards etc.

In 2006 she left the Retreat Center and moved to Boulder, Utah. This is where she heard for the first time a Singing Bowl. These soothing sounds with the rich overtones captured her heart immediately. Deeply aware of the power of sound through her meditation practice, she wanted to learn more about them. She went to Atma Buti School in Boulder, Colorado where she was taught under the guidance of Suren Shresta. From him she received her certification and since then she has been touching the hearts of many through this deeply restorative and transformative modality.
