Queer Art with Non-Binary Artist Veya
Rainbow Soul Features Veya! Their art is profoundly queer and inclusive! My name is Veya. Drawing and painting has always been one of my greatest passions, as are cats and reading. I've been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember. It's what I do when I'm on the phone, when I'm bored, but most importantly, it's what I do when I feel inspired. Inspiration can be found in so many things. Just take a look at my work, and you'll see what I mean. Thank you for visiting my website. https://twitter.com/artbyveya/ https://www.facebook.com/artbyveya https://www.deviantart.com/v-e-y-a https://www.redbubble.com/people/artbyveya/ https://www.veya.nl/ Send Email to email@example.com

From Dawn: I am a self-taught artist working in the medium of fused Glass. I have over 20 years of experience doing fine art shows and have been featured in magazines, and have won awards for my Art. I genuinely believe that Art has a voice and can give us inspiration and our daily lives.

Explore Nature Photography with Aryn Fritz
Let's Talk Nature Photography with magical person Aryn Fritz (she/her) From Aryn: With a love of travel born from working on a merchant marine ship, and a love of photography that came from my dad gifting me his 35mm camera. I set out for my storytelling to come in the form of photography. I started On The Fritz in 2015 with a cross country drive. While I did obtain certification my model has always been a desire to teach that great photography is learned through trial and error, and that your gear need not be top of the line to capture images you could be happy to have on your wall. There is so much beauty in our world and using my camera has slowed me down enough to see it.

Let's Talk Aura's with Beth Montgomery
From Beth: Hi I’m a mom, creative, lover of life, and I’ve been able to see energies since I can remember. I haven’t always been as open with sharing my gift. For a long time, I hid it. I kept it tucked away because of my fear of not being accepted. I feared rejection and yearned to fit in. I turned to drugs and alcohol to numb the pain of living as a sensitive and empathic person. Not anymore. I decided to seek recovery in 2020 and once I got clear headed, the colors came back. I began walking on my true aligned path. The energies emerged and I began speaking about it with people I trusted. Then came the TikTok video that catapulted the growth. In mid March, I spoke it out to the universe and wow did the universe wink. After hundreds of readings over the following month, I’ve learned many things. The most important thing is that everyone is doing way better than they think they are. The other is that I have trusted my mediumship abilities. In those readings, I’ve been able to connect with spirit and share messages and symbols. I look forward to sharing time with you and the crew. Here’s a link to share if there’s an opportunity: https://linktr.ee/butterflybeth1111

Herbalism & Henna with Talia Moon
Herbalism & Henna Sunday Night my friends! Meet Sumayah! "I have been studying the art of Henna and Herbal healing for well over a decade now. In my studies of Dance and Herbalism I found the art of henna. As a studied Artist with a Bachelors in Fine Arts I was excited that I could combine My love of art and plants into one. I have traveled across the US and Central America sharing henna in markets, festivals and with random strangers, gifting the joy I find in this beautiful plant medicine. I had been studying various world dances when I was introduced to Mehndi art and simultaneously, was introduced to the ancient art of Thai massage. All of which, I grew deeply passionate for. I quickly found dance and movement to be the embodiment of the souls language. Each modality leading itself into a web of healing with art, movement and plant medicine. Coming full circle, while in Florida, I found myself aligned to enroll in a clinical herbal program in both Western and Traditional Chinese Herbalism at Traditions Herbal School. This has allowed Me to establish myself deeper into herbal healing in a way I can share with My community both physically and spiritually."

Let's Talk Binders - Carmen 2b.care
A company that serves the transgender and gender variant community with binders and validation through clothing. We will be meeting Carmen - Philantropic Program Lead for 2B.Care After growing up and graduating college in rural towns in Georgia, Carmen became keenly aware, as a queer, intellectual, spiritual, person of color they were quickly evolving beyond their surroundings. In 2007, they moved to Washington, D.C. to teach and lead schools in some of the district’s most neglected neighborhoods, serving the city’s brightest youth. After 13 years in education and the non-profit sectors, Carmen’s passion for holistically supporting and affirming beings prompted them to find an avenue which allowed them to fulfill their soul commission of being the embodiment of compassion and love. In 2019, Carmen’s prayers MANIFESTED in joining the gc2b family. The first year at gc2b allowed Carmen to see the direct alignment of their values with those of gc2b. It is a divine connection. As the Philanthropic Program Lead at 2bcare, Carmen has developed partnerships with hospitals, gender-affirming clinics, and non-profit organizations to establish donation hubs throughout North America, the UK, South Africa, and New Zealand. We are currently researching ways to extend this support to South America, and Southeast Asia. Since the advent of the gc2b’s philanthropic program, we have donated over 6,000 binders world wide. This is only one aspect of our program and we are looking forward to developing pillars of the work to provide diverse support to the LGTBQIA+ community. In their free time, and not working on their PhD, Carmen enjoys adventuring, hiking, performing in drag as Tre d. Thickum, and being a Kosmic H.Y.P.E. Womxn (Have Your Perspective Elevated) and a Revolutionary of Compassion and Love. 2B.Care is: Founded in 2015, gc2b is a trans-owned company based in Maryland. gc2b's founder, CEO, and designer, Marli Washington, saw that the only binding options were uncomfortable and inadequate compression shirts designed for cis men. As a University of the Arts Industrial Design graduate, he used his experience in product design and his background in textiles to provide accessible, comfortable, and safe binding options designed by trans people, for trans people. gc2b binders were the first garments designed and patented specifically for gender-affirming chest binding. As gc2b has grown as a brand, we have been provided with a powerful platform to make a meaningful difference in our community. Over the past three years, we have sponsored 100+ LGBT organizations and donated over 6000+ chest binders to be distributed to people in need. We’ve attended numerous conferences and Pride events, and we’ve collaborated with local and global organizations committed to positive change. Our core mission has evolved: we’re not only a brand providing gender-affirming apparel, but an active part of a movement. We're proud to introduce 2b care as the philanthropic component of the gc2b legacy. Play the Games and Contests, Learn more at RainbowSoul.show

K. Kreisel Nonbinary Artist and Ceremonialist!
K (they/them and she/her) was raised Roman Catholic in Chicago and is now a hospice chaplain and ceremony officiant in Jo Daviess county, Illinois. They discovered Wicca in middle school and converted immediately, as this was the first time they had ever heard of a loving, non-masculine God. Thanks to the social justice and inclusivity of the School Sisters of St. Francis at Alverno College, where K studied art therapy in undergrad, K has come to the path between Wicca and Catholicism. The sacred nature of our queer family, history, and Pride has inspired both their spirituality and artwork for many years. K has facilitated workshops, both in person and virtually, on how church groups can be more queer inclusive and feminist. They are also a textile artist with a strong focus on Marian imagery.

Yoga Heals - Baharti Carla
Yoga Heals! Featuring Bharti Carla: (from Carla) My formal, dedicated offering to the health & wellness industry began in 2012 with the opening of Garden of Healing Yoga & Wellness in New Brunswick. The one-woman endeavor grew to be a hub, a network for students of life, teachers, healers and artists alike. Over the years, we’ve served hundreds in and outside of the studio, becoming the go-to for customized wellness interactives that enhance existing programs or events. 2020 was a time to reassess and pivot towards what was always our greatest strength- taking wellness activities to the people. Outdoors, online, through corporate wellness programs at a time when employee health & morale was in need of serious support. What had made us unique now became what would help us survive & even thrive through difficult times. “The Garden” currently offers in-person and livestream classes; therapeutic services for relaxation, stress management and injury recovery; as well as specialty workshops and monthly drum/dance gathering for all ages & levels. We provide workplace wellness on location and online in single & multiple sessions; team building/guided meditation for strategic planning and on-site spa events that integrate much more than basic chair massages.

Channeling with Guest River
Rainbow Soul features this amazing non-binary channeler & energetic healer River Lightbearer! Within each of us lies a great power. The power to determine who we are, progress in our healing journey, and create the life we want to live. The power for change. Connecting with that inner power isn’t always easy, especially when it’s been obscured by trauma. Sometimes you need guidance and support to find the power within you and learn to work with it rather than fearing it. Sometimes you need someone to support you through change. That’s where I and my guides, beings of light called Shiva and Pietkela, come in. For years, I’ve been on my own journey of healing and connecting with my inner power. I’ve been supported by Shiva, Pietkela, and my other guides, beings who have worked with me since childhood and even in previous lifetimes. Through this work, I’ve gained tools and skills that have brought me growth and healing, and I’m thrilled to share my gifts with others. I would love to support your journey toward healing and embracing your inner power!

2022 Astrology Forecast
Rainbow Soul Features the 2022 Forecast with Andrew Watt - Andrew B. Watt is an astrologer, textile artist, poet and consultant.

Here's some information from their website. "EarthSpirit is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 1977, dedicated to the preservation and development of Earth-centered spirituality, culture and community; we particularly focus on the indigenous traditions of pre-Christian Europe, known collectively as paganism, which have survived in varying degrees to the present day. At the core of the pagan traditions is a sense that the Great Mystery (or the Sacred, as some would call it) manifests throughout the natural world; that we can experience it directly through communion with Nature; and that the Spirit of the Earth unites all beings in a vast and varied web of interdependent connections. The EarthSpirit Community provides services to a nationwide network of pagans and others following an Earth-centered spiritual path. Based in the Massachusetts area, our membership extends across the United States, and also to several other countries. EarthSpirit was founded with the goal of helping to create an active pagan community in New England. Once that was accomplished, EarthSpirit turned the primary focus of its work toward helping develop pagan concepts and attitudes for living in the present age, to encourage communication and understanding among people of different traditions and ideologies, to provide opportunities for shared spiritual experience, and to help educate the general public concerning Earth-centered spirituality.
