Performers

Frenchy and the Punk

For more than a decade, Frenchy and the Punk have been refining their own voice in many quadrants of the Balkanized post-punk world. They have essentially invented their own genre in which punk vitality and drive meets an evocative, cinematic way with exotic melodies and European-inflected percussive textures. A founding member of Deep Wound with J Mascis and Lou Barlow, Helland weaves dark riffs and layers of spidery melody in an acoustic/electric tone that is entirely his own. Stephenson sings with a gothy heft and authority that may remind one generation of Siouxsie Sioux and another of Grace Slick.

Through no design of their own, the Hudson valley, New York, based band has become an in-demand performer on the post-cabaret, mythic, and steampunk scenes, even as they eschew affectation and excessive theatricality. Their engaging, unjaded live shows convert strangers to fans regardless of the setting. Their 2019 album, Hooray Beret, offers the strongest proof to date of this band’s rich and edifying spirit of serious fun.

Tantric Intuitive Healing.jpg

tantric intuitive healings

Do you have an ache or pain that just isn't going away? Do you have a question about an aspect of your life, such as your job, your purpose, or your relationships? Would you simply like some physical support to feel better? Tantric Intuitive Healings uses the support of your body's own energy (a.k.a. "kundalini" or "chi") to release physical blockages, stuck emotions, and to create clarity in your life. The process is facilitated by an intuitive reading that offers any communication from the body or your guides. Additional tools may include emotional release, breathing, and yoga postures. Each healing is unique and designed to fit the need of each person.

Tantra is the yoga of the energetic body. The body has an inherent intelligence and Tantra teaches us how to uncover that intelligence. Christine Krumsee created Tantric Intuitive Healings through her own healing process of chronic pelvic floor pain, chronic candida/fungal infections, and kidney dis-ease. She came to directly experience how trapped emotions were creating dis-ease in her own body and then became able to facilitate this process for others. She is a certified Yoga Teacher and certified Tantric Practitioner, as well as a health coach and therapeutic art instructor. She has worked extensively with nutrition and has assisted several Functional Medicine doctors. She is passionate about helping others uncover their own inner joy and freedom while releasing the things that are no longer serving them.

celestial divinity (danielle vespo)

I am a firm believer in turning your passion into your profession- Your passion is your purpose. Astrology has been my passion since 1999. Ever since, I have had an insatiable thirst for Celestial knowledge. I am fascinated by how accurately the planetary cycles have influence in everyday life. Nobody crosses our path by chance. The people we meet, the families we are born into, even our co-workers are in our lives for a reason. Life is divinely orchestrated through the dance of the planets. Being aware of the planetary energies of the present, and studying my past, - Astrology helps me understand the "reasons", and brings a deeper understanding of how everything and everyone is cosmically connected.

I use my knowledge of Astrology and Tarot in unison with my Intuition to aid you in self-discovery by bringing awareness to the energetic influences of the Universe. I use the date/time/place of birth to generate a chart showing the placement of all the planets. This reading and consultation can lead to understanding, growth and personal healing.
