Cires was born native Amazon, first generation in the community Ceu do Mapia in the state of Amazonas, Brazil. She was born into the lineage of Santo Daime and was given her name at birth by the great spiritual leader Padrinho Sebastiao Mota de Melo and her grandmother Madrinha Cristina. She comes from a royal line deep with in the Amazon. There is a deep reverence and respect for her grandparents and parents who are great spiritual leaders.
Cires is a wealth of knowledge, a spiritual warrior, one of the top singers in her spiritual lineage.

Cires is a spiritual coach, wisdom keeper, health advocate and kambozeira (one who applies Kambo medicine). She brings with her some amazing medicine harvested by her family in the Amazon forest.
Judea is medium, intuitive energy healer, and sound therapist living on the island of Kauai. She has been working with and continuously deepening her study of the healing power of sound for nearly 20 years. Much of her intuitive work is focused around addressing pathways of flow in the soul matrix and helping those who work with her to dispel, transform, move, and integrate energies for deeper healing. She has had a talent for playing and composing music since childhood, and shares insights and messages from spirit through song. Her sound journeys create a supportive container for exploring aspects of self with non-judgment, compassion, and clarity, and gently carry one back home to their grounded center, with a new found sense of completion, alignment, wisdom, and wellbeing.

Rocío began her conscious healing journey with plant medicines and mediumship 14 years ago.

She is an experienced empathetic and non-judgmental witness for others in their transformational journeys with psychedelics and other healing modalities. Rocío is a trauma informed Somatic Breath-worker. Through this modality of breath work, she guides and holds potent space for others to release stored trauma which aids greatly on the path of embodiment.
