About the Ceremony Facilitators
Angela Tobon - Curandera (Medicine Woman)
Head Facilitator & Guide
Angie is a Spiritual Guide, Healer, Teacher, and Mentor and has studied and practiced ancient and modern energy medicine practices for many years. She completed an intensive 1 on 1 Shamanic studies in the Amazonian Jungle, with Shaman Ramon Alvarado of the Kichua Lineage. During the months in the Jungle, she learned to work with many sacred plant medicines which helped her to appreciate her own intuitive inclination to the jungle and its powers. Her experience with Shaman Ramon Alvarado brings full circle connection with her native journey that had begun many years back as a child, in her own native land of Colombia.
Her childhood memories as a free and wild child roaming her family's land, fully connected to nature and the memories of her Curandero grandfather’s wisdom, gave her confidence to pursue her true nature's purpose.
Angie was trained to go deep in the Jungle in search of the sacred plants such as Chirripanga, Piton, Ayahuma, Tobacco, Ayahuasca, and many other cleansing and purifying plant medicines.
She learned ceremonial ways of picking the sacred plant and how to brew them in ways to conserve the sacredness and the magic powers of the plants.
Her experience and knowledge brings elder wisdom, and a deep, spiritual, emotional, physical and sacred connection while serving the plant medicine. Angie has also been an active Chinese Medicine Practitioner for over a decade.
Guided by her passion and personal desire to become empowered to serve and heal, she wishes to convey this harmonious state of being to those who have a desire to be guided and to learn more about their spirituality.
She learned and understood that we are indeed beings of energy and not just dense mass. We are fully supported by our Pachamama, the sacred plants, Taita Inti (the Sun), beings of light and beyond.
She wishes to teach that we are connected to an infinite source of energy, that was never born and that never dies.

Kelsey began her wellness journey as an integrative nutrition gut health coach working alongside natural doctors and therapists in a virtual clinical setting. As she began working with clients to navigate their digestive issues physically she soon realized that a lot of it was in correlation with energetic and emotional suppressed energy and traumas. She went on to become certified in birth imprints and childhood trauma informed coaching as well as somatic breath work facilitation.

Creating a healthier, happier, more optimistic lifestyle. She is able to help her clients do this by identifying limiting beliefs, toxic thought patterns, and deep rooted programs and conditioning from childhood. Since working through her own struggles with substance abuse and relational attachment wounds/ traumas Kelsey found plant medicines as the true catalyst for her spiritual growth and transformation. She now is trained in a clinical setting background to educate clients on the importance of preparation, ceremony with intention, and the integration of plant medicines with Dimensions Retreat Centres. Kelsey uses her toolbox of authentic healing modalities inside and outside of sacred ceremonies to help her clients unlock their true purpose, passion, and meaning in life with a focus on getting to the root of the core issues.
