ॐ ZONDO (ABRAHAM MELLISH) -- In His Own Words: "My grandfather once told me that in Africa most people feel rhythm naturally, because of their mothers. He said during the early stages of life the mother would tap on the infant back in rhythmic patterns to put the baby to bed. Over time the child then grew up with a natural sense of rhythm. The first Liberian civil war started in 1990, the year of my birth. In this sense, my rhythm comes from tear drops and the steady chatter of semi-automatic weapons. After the war my music's influence continued all over -- from Lucky to Brenda Fassie to James Brown to Michael Jackson -- we dance! My mother. Tetama Sumo, once told me that sometimes she couldn’t help the tears, so she danced while she cried -- and that I was right there with her moving my feet. My creative philosophy is rooted in self-realization & collective healing through music, to bring forth as well as pass on the best of self at any moment, no matter the struggle that begs of rhythm, melody, or spiritual guidance."

David says "I've been tending sacred ceremonial fires since around 1988. Professionally, I'm a Ph.D. Licensed Psychologist, specializing in children, adolescents, and families, for 47 years, over 5,000 young people served. When I was seven, I told my mom, "When I grow up, I'm going to be someone kids can talk to." I taught fourth grade and twelfth grade in public schools and at the university level for 13 years and have taught lots of classes on organic gardening, bee keeping, raising rabbits and chickens, and fungi cultivation. I love one on one healing conversations at the fire, the heartbeat of every ceremony."
Rhonda Murphy. Rhonda Murphy From a young age, Rhonda spent much of her time in solitude, reading and contemplating the nature of everything. Science fiction and fantasy developed her interest in sociology and the organization of societies, presented the idea that our thoughts can affect physical reality, and suggested the existence of dragons and our ability to communicate and bond with them telepathically. Her first spiritual teacher informed Rhonda that she could move great gobs of energy, but was using fear and anger to do so. She taught Rhonda how to ground when angry—by walking away! Soon Rhonda learned to move energy through Love. She has since remembered how to bilocate and to direct energy. She has worked with a team to repair ley lines, and to upload secret libraries of books, scrolls, and mechanical and electronic devices, plus DNA patterns from hidden “arks,” to the collective consciousness. Rhonda has a degree in Sociology, is attuned to Reiki level 3 and Amanohuna level 1, trained in Acutapping Emotional Freedom Techniques, is webmaster and president of Spiritual Light Center in Franklin, NC, and teaches line dancing.
