Welcome... I am Angele, publisher of Issues Magazine for Empowerment, 1990 to 2017, Coordinator of the Spring Festival of Awareness for 29 years, 1989 to 2018 and organizer of Wise Womens Weekend 1997 to 2017. In 2002 I met Richard Ortega and assisted the devas in keeping the Johnsons Landing Retreat Center an affordable place to host longer alternative retreats like TaiChi, Yoga and Meditation.We happily sold the Center in 2021 and are delighted that the legacy of this healing space continues.

On this website you can check out the 25 years of Issues Magazine, the Spring Festival of Awareness and Wise Womens Weekend programs as either a pdf or a Flip Book, plus historical facts and images, even a video.

My autobiography More Musings is a follow-up to my ongoing editorials called Musing which are also posted. It is my understanding of growing myself with the inner guidance of angels. I would like this book to sail on the Winds of Change without Amazon so please forward this website to others that might enjoy.

Two slideshows - changes monthly.

You can also meet my mom, Tess Tessier by clicking her link and watch several short videos when she toured the province of BC back in the '90's. Her book, Iceberg Tea, is readable as a pdf. You can order this book from me. White Spirit Bear was her second book and is available thru www.hancockhouse.com.

Please enjoy my collection of Quan Yin statues, paintings and images. I want to encourage others to share their photos so send me an image and a few words and I will post them as well.

One day I may scan the Smallholder, a Kootenay magazine that shared ideas on how to live sustainably, 1974's to 2013. Hopefully one day I can include other New Age or holistic publictions from the past so you can get an idea of who lead the march, locally, towards becoming aware of our spirit.
