Welcome... I am Angele, publisher of Issues Magazine for Empowerment, 1990 to 2017. Host of the Spring Festival of Awareness for 29 years, 1989 to 2018 and the Wise Womens Weekend 1997 to 2017. I met Richard in 2002 and assisted the devas in keeping the Johnsons Landing Retreat Center an affordable place to many people could continue their healing process. Gradually I evolved some pasture land into a large garden using cardboard and earthworms so our guests could eat healthy vegetarian food, including an abundance of raspberries, strawberries and saskatoons. We happily sold the Center to others in 2021 so it could continue its legacy of being a sacred and healing space. You can read the entire magazine as a pdf, or starting in 2009 an Issuu supported pages that flip. Included are the annual Spring Festival of Awareness and Wise Womens Weekends programs as pdf's 1978 to 2018 plus other historical facts that changed us all. Since selling I have wrote my autobigraphy More Musings as a follow-up to the 25 years of ongoing editorial called Musing which is also included as a blog with my moms homesteading photos for the first ten years. May my understanding of how I healed and grew myself with the inner guidance of my angels encourge you to develop your intutitive side so that logic and intuition can dance together in your soul grounding heaven to earth.

You can also meet my mom, Tess Tessier by clicking her link and watch several short videos, when she toured the province back in the '90's. Her book, Iceberg Tea, is readable as a pdf or via Issuu, and you can order a book at a super special price.

Please enjoy my collection of Quan Yin statues, paintings and images and I want to encourage others to share their photos with the world by sending an image I can post. Also featured is the Smallholder, a Kootenay magazine that shared ideas on how to live sustainably, 1974's to 2013.

If you enjoy the book, videos or my concept od this website please donate and keep the site available. My plan is to include other new age or holsitic publictions so you can get an idea of who lead the march to awareness of spirit locally.
