His research led him to the creation of the HealMe, with the aim of providing information, support and guidance to those seeking alternative health information and connection with alternative health experts.

Melinda Norris

Curious and confused from the start, nothing seemed fair or right. My search for truth started early and quickly developed into question everything and doing the opposite of what was being narrated.
With a BA degree in film, I globe trotted and ocean sailed for 10 years. I never made a film but fell into live events and festivals. Real-eyes-ing the breadth, reach and power of the tribal gathering, I found a place to share my skills and develop my capacity as a change agent. Event activism was my new passion.
Add a life long obsession with sacred geometry, inventing and experimenting to the teachings of Buckminster Fuller (engineer, philosopher, futurist) I started building tiny houses as a platform and bridge where people can experience a simpler, debt free, self relying life closer to nature and to help in the letting go of the monitored and manipulated life many have defaulted too. I'm on a mission to be the best trim-tab I can be. Small movements creating massive impact.

Dale Holmes

Dale an Australian speaker that has been driven to make content after years of studying the the global cult and their agenda. He is a supporter of ritual abuse survivors as well as exposing the surface level agenda playing out currently. In Dale's words, "Humanity is in the transition phase of breaking a long held collective victim mentality that is now demanding we stand on our own two feet.. and.. to remember our own sovereignty on all levels and to start acting that out in the physical world is what we are here to do."
