Tina lectures on intuition and holds private sessions with clients at the world renowned Miraval Resort in Arizona. Her warmth, infectious laugh and incredible ability to help people connect with a higher vibration enables them to lead happier and more inspired lives.

MaryBeth Johnson – MiaLena Designs
MaryBeth Johnson has been a creative spirit since her childhood. On a whim, she went to a bead store and started a new hobby. While working in the gift shop at Miraval Resort and Spa in Tucson, Arizona, she read a book about prayer beads and was instantly inspired by their inherent spirituality and personally meaningful nature . She started selling her one-of-a-kind custom jewelry and people immediately gravitated to their unique style and intimate meaning. Marybeth combines rich, organic colors, shapes and textures in her exquisite beaded designs that convey a sense of integrity and respect for their greater spiritual meaning. The result of her inspiration is truly magical. “My hope," says Marybeth," is that a piece will end up resonating with a person’s own spirituality and personal style, that they will find their own intention in the beads. That feels good to me. That is something I believe in.”
