Heather Barrett is the owner of a metaphysical store, All My Relations, in Indianapolis, IN. She is an Ordained Minister, Reiki Master, Life Coach and trained in the use of Etheric Weavers.  She has been involved in the metaphysical realm for over 30 years as a practitioner and teacher.   Through the private sessions, workshops and classes she teaches; she helps people to understand who they are, what their potential is and grow spiritually.

Letha Cupp also known as Gypsy Sol, is an empath, intuitive, and reiki master. Since 1986, Letha has performed on stage with college theatre, as a singer in a rock and roll band, and as a dancer in a middle eastern performance troupe. In 1998, she began a public relations career that included multiple public speaking opportunities, and later, a few media spokesperson opportunities. In 2019, she stepped out of her comfort zone and attended a 6 week Comedy Improv Workshop to strengthen her ability to think and speak in the moment. From that experience, she made a connection of working more from the gut instinct rather than the ego when giving intuitive readings.

She has been creating abstract art with alcohol ink for over a year. Many of her pieces displayed images as the ink dried on the paper. She found a unique connection between the meditative stance of working with a fluid medium and the way the Universe communicates through this process. She took art classes in college, but is mostly a crafter and creator. She uses her alcohol ink creations in graphic design projects for commercial usage, such as brochures, logos and backdrop images.
