~ Tanene Kurtenbach Since 1973, Tanene has utilized the sacred sciences—astrology, tarot, dream interpretation--as healing modalities in which to coach individuals to create a future that calls them into being. She engages others to view life’s lessons as “stepping stones”—a bridge to our inherent wholeness and Soul purpose. She believes that as we heal ourselves, we are more present, loving, non-judging, and available to others. As we align our heart, mind, and spirit as one, we create a spirit filled musical note all our own!
