Dr. Melanie Dunlap
Traditional Naturopath, Herbalist & Wellness Educator
Melanie Dunlap knows firsthand what it is like to be so passionate about helping others that you burn yourself out. Recognizing her own struggles with stress, nutrition and destructive self talk prompted Melanie to find creative ways to turn those challenges into opportunities. As the founder of the Peaceful Spirit Enrichment Center, Melanie has helped thousands of women find the path to a healthier, happier more heart-centered life.
Her skills as a naturopath, herbalist, massage therapist and Reiki Master/teacher are a natural fit for Melanie’s journey, all combining into her work as a Natural Health Practitioner. With over 20 years of experience in wholistic therapies, Melanie has developed a unique blend of intuition and knowledge that offers practical and inspiring guidance to awaken personal awareness and create sustainable action.
Change is inevitable but growth is optional, so Melanie created the annual AZ Goddess Conference in New River, AZ to give women the opportunity to come together as a group to grow, learn, laugh and recharge.

Kathy became interested in Feng Shui several years after hearing a presentation by Rosanne Rusnock. Rosanne (Ro) has now become her mentor and Feng Shui teacher. When Kathy first heard about Feng Shui, it resonated deeply with her and she was “hungry” for any information she could glean on the subject. She attended every workshop that became available.
In October of 2016, The Western School of Feng Shui, founded by Terah Kathryn Collins, offered an intensive certification class in Scottsdale, Arizona. The class was taught by Ro Rusnock. Kathy knew she was destined to take the class. She became a Certified Feng Shui Practitioner of Essential Feng Shui on December 7, 2016.
Kathy began her company, “Aloha Feng Shui”, soon after receiving her certification. She loves Hawaii and goes there as often as possible. Each time she travels there, she vows to bring back the love, (aloha), and spread it to everyone she encounters. So now, she loves to add special aloha to every consultation she does.
Kathy does both residential and business consultations. It has become her passion to find out what her clients’ needs and intentions are and then utilize the tools and techniques of Feng Shui to help them achieve their goals and have optimal success, happiness, prosperity, and health.
Her clients come to understand that cluttered space can cause many maladies in many areas of our lives, and by using these fun techniques of Feng shui, we can allow the Ch’i (energy) to flow freely in our spaces, thereby allowing optimal results in every area of our lives.
“I love helping people. Feng Shui is magical and so much fun. I would love to help you achieve the best possible life you can imagine.”
Kathy is also a Reiki Master, a ukulele player and teacher, a singer and hula dancer. Kathy and Jeff are blessed to have four grandchildren, of whom they are part-time care givers.
Kathy currently lives in Sun City, Arizona, with her husband, Jeff and their two dogs Sadie and Ellie. She grew up in the Phoenix area and has seen the area grow and change extensively. She graduated from Arizona State University and was an elementary school teacher for 27 years.
Spiritual Readings available during the conference for an additional charge:
The Spiritual Reading is designed as a focused one on one session assisting you in living powerfully.
We all have help from the ‘other side’, from those in the non-physical. This is our Spiritual Team that is, and has always been, with us from birth. We were born with a connection to Spirit. We are Spirit living in a physical body. That being said, there are times when it is a great benefit to be able to connect with someone that understands Spirit and how Spirit works so they can tune in and assist you in receiving and understanding the messages coming to you in your life. This can also be a great assist to you in making sense of what is happening at this time in your life.
The Reading typically provides positive insight and clarity into your life in a way that assists you in powerfully moving forward. A Reading may also provide the opportunity of being able to connect you to loved ones that have crossed over to the non-physical. Our loved ones many times continue to assist us after they pass into the non-physical and having a connection with them can often times bring peace and the ability to move forward in areas you may otherwise feel ‘stuck’. The Primary emphasis of any reading is to allow clarity and insight to come forth.
