Cynthia James

Author + Speaker + Facilitator + Transformation Coach

Being called a Champion for Change is not accidental.  I have spent over two decades in self-examination, higher education and working with people around the world that are seekers.  These individuals are always searching for knowledge, wisdom, and techniques to bring their gifts to the world.

As a transformation coach, my work invites people to take deep dives into three areas: Inquiry, Introspection, and Integration.  I believe that my job is to support individuals to find their authentic voices, heal habits and patterns that no longer support them, claim their freedom and create the life of their dreams.

Martin Kerr

Singer Song-Writer Extraordinaire

Born and raised in the English countryside, Martin Kerr has built his career one passer-by at a time, singing his way from street-corners to concert halls and arenas. Often compared to the best of the 1970s troubadours – Cat Stevens, James Taylor, John Denver – Martin’s soulful voice and lyrics connect with listeners of all ages and backgrounds. 

2017 has been an incredible year for singer-songwriter Martin Kerr.  His independent album ‘Better Than Brand-New’ went to #2 on the iTunes album chart and hit the Top 10 on the Canada Album Sales Chart.  The same week he opened for Sarah McLachlan at Rogers Place arena and was named Male Artist of the Year at the 2017 Edmonton Music Awards. 

Martin’s talent has already earned him opening spots with Andy Grammer, Jim Cuddy (Blue Rodeo), Sean McCann (Great Big Sea) and Sarah McLachlan. Expect to see him on more big stages soon.

Amy Bishop

Singer, songwriter, nice gal with frequent potty mouth…

Amy Bishop’s voice is a combination of smooth pavement and rough gravel, with the ability to charm listeners with her sweet tones; yet stun audiences with the ability to hit any high note. Amy appeared on the inaugural season of CTV’s “The Launch” where she dazzled all of Canada with her amazing performances. Hailing from Calgary, Amy began her music career around campfires, at block parties, and in church choir. Knowing a career in music is no guarantee, Amy decided to practice other trades, but her passion for music prevailed, leading her to collaborations with Moby and opening for April Wine, Farmer’s Daughter, and Chris Cummings. Amy has an instinctive ability to craft stories into song and deliver them with sincerity and beauty.

“The Circle of Love Gathering is a joyous and warm experience of friends, consciousness, music, depth, connection and freedom.  There is something special and a bit hard to define that is completely nourishing to the soul.”

Dr. Kathy Hearn

“Save this time to retreat, allowing all the walls and all the doing to cease. This time is designed for you simply to reveal what is already within, so you may deeply experience and recognize your True Essential Self: The Self that knows no walls and is free. This True Self arises and shines when we take the time to nurture, cultivate and celebrate it! When you return home, you naturally share the heart that has been awakened!”

Rev. Mark Accomando

“I have never been to an event that has changed me so intensely for the good. The combination of professional, spiritual music, speakers, workshops and mandala art was powerful. I left on such a spiritual high that I knew I would come back again and again. I woke up singing many of the songs I heard for months. I made friends from all over. Don’t miss this opportunity to awaken your heart and deepen the love in your soul.
