Diane Anderson: Healing Arts Practitioner and Workshop Presenter. 

Diane Anderson, MS, RMT, holds a Master’s Degree in Naturology and provides energy healing sessions that include Reiki, chakra clearing, extraction of trapped or displaced energies, and shamanic healing which involves removal of spiritual intrusions and recovery of lost soul pieces. Diane also provides holistic health coaching and spiritual mentoring to help you identify your best self and to live your life with joy and a greater sense of purpose.  

Everyone can benefit from energy healing, a holistic therapy that improves the health of the body, mind and spirit. Our bodies are complex energy systems that react to the world and circumstances around us. When energy becomes trapped in the body, it can manifest in a variety of physical and spiritual ailments. Reiki and other energy therapies support all types of traditional medical treatments. If you are experiencing stress-related conditions, fatigue, chronic pain, insomnia, or anxiety, energy healing can help to relieve these conditions and improve your overall well-being.

Shamanic healing works with the spiritual aspect of illness. A shamanic session may focus on the removal of spiritual or energetic intrusions or may center on healing soul loss that is the result of physical, mental, or emotional stress or trauma. Shamanic healing treats the root cause of illness and benefits every area of one’s life. Spiritual healing increases self-awareness, vitality, and enthusiasm for life.

Diane also teaches Reiki and Shamanic Healing at Hermitage Farm. (See Calendar and Workshops for dates and information)

Dalia Elimam, MD: Healing Arts Practitioner and Workshop Presenter.  I was born In Egypt and raised in Germany and graduated from the Faculty of Medicine, Suez Canal University in Ismailia, Egypt, 1999 and completed my Residency in Pediatrics and Neonatology there in 2003. I received my Master of Science in Hematology 2003 and was appointed Assistant Lecturer of Pediatrics at the Suez Canal University (still current). I completed my PhD Thesis work in Medical Genetics at the University of Miami in Miami, FL in (2006-2010). The years 2014- 2017 were a turning point for me.  4 arduous and challenging years were filled with losses and grief and disabling health challenges. I embarked on a journey of self-discovery and further self-development seeking well-being, purpose and passion, meaning and wisdom of life. 

My work with children and my work in molecular and clinical genetics had always fulfilled my love for looking always beyond and under the visible. I have been always curious about the “why” and was searching for what lies beneath the unexpressed, the unspoken, the unseen, the root cause, the deeper meaning, and now the wisdom in our body and life.

Eden Energy Medicine made so much sense to me. It provided me with answers. It would explain me, relationships, health and disease and Life.  It empowered me and allowed me to accept and breathe and see the wisdom in what we are being gifted with in this life. It liberated me. EEM gave me wings. I became a certified Eden Energy Medicine practitioner and teacher.  I have found my new passion and purpose.

Laura Wentworth CNS, DNP, MS, RN, Healing Arts Practitioner. Laura is a certified Intuitive and Health and Wellness Life Coach. My approach to coaching blends my experience working 40 years as a nurse; 20 of those years as an advanced practice nurse with training through the Intuition Wisdom Institute and American Holistic Nurse Credentialing Corporation.
In our work together, I aim to guide you to be your best self emotionally, physically, and spiritually through coaching. Using a holistic and intuitive approach means that together we will consider all aspects of your life and harness your own intuition to guide you to be your best. Based on the impact that these coaching techniques had with cardiac patients in the hospital setting, I am passionate to help others through intuitive coaching meet their goals across all aspects of their lives. 

Throughout my nursing career, I acquired a Master’s and Doctorate degrees in nursing and was able to integrate holistic and lifestyle coaching into the hospital setting. My Master’s degree was as a Clinical Nurse Specialist, and my Doctorate in Nursing Practice with an emphasis in Holistic/ Transcultural Nursing.  The Coaching certifications include Intuitive Life Coaching trained and qualified by the Intuition Wisdom Institute in 2023 and Health and Wellness Nurse Coach board certified through the American Holistic Nurse Credentialing Corporation in 2013. I have taught coaching at the Wisdom of the Whole Coaching Academy from 2014-2017. I also have other healing modality certifications in Reiki and Crystalline Consciousness energy healing.

Some of my interests outside of coaching and health care include spending time with family, friends, and creating new memories. I love the adventure of traveling, meeting new people and experiencing life differently.
