Our Team

This is my third magazine, the first was The Rising Sun, a Houston metaphysical journal and events calendar, the second was Family & Friends, a monthly journal of articles and events for kids and parents. I created and published The Butterfly, a wholistic healing section in The Horsefly Magazine in Taos, NM.

Formerly a marketing writer for the corporate world, I now proofread finished novels for authors.  My metaphysical classes included manyat The Chapel of Prayer, CenterPoint Metaphysical, Carmel Temple, Temple's Gate and many other locations. I facilitated psychic readings, akashic guidance, integrations, energy healings, and spiritual counseling for thousands of people over the years. I am a meme-maker using beautiful photos to illustrate wisdom and inspiration.

Why I started this magazine

Recently, Ginger McCord, Editor and Originator of The Indigo Sun, a metaphysical magazine in Houston, crossed over to the other side. She did not arrange a successor, so the community was without a place to share concepts, advertise services and products, and list events. That is the same situation I encountered when I started The Rising Sun, and it was difficult for people to find good resources. I want to help seekers find like-minded and like-hearted friends on the path.

I will no longer publish a paper copy, but will offer many of the same resources as The Indigo Sun online. I will update articles weekly, and add to the calendar as events show up. It will be a dynamic resource that progresses with the changing times, also using video and audio from fantastic speakers. 

Every visit, you will find something new.
