Deborah Frueh - Tarot Educator
Deborah Frueh learned to read the Tarot in a very unusual way over 25 years ago. She began her search of the answers to Life's Biggest Questions at a young age, and studied the world's religions, both ancient and modern, in depth.
In 1993 she interviewed the heads of many of the world's religions for a documentary film commemorating the 100th anniversary of the original gathering of the Parliament of the World's Religions at the Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893.
It was here that she realized that all roads - committed to with honesty and kindness at our core - lead to the deep, spiritual understanding that we crave; and that everyone is always on The Path.
Deborah has been reading the Tarot for over 25 years. She is an Intuitive Coach, Certified Life Coach, Tachyon Level Reiki Master, and a former Radio and internet TV Host who travels the world helping others learn to use their own Personal GPS.
Deb grew up in the Chicago suburbs - the second of seven children - and daughter of Marian Tompson, co-founder of La Leche League, International and Clement Tompson, leader of the research group that invented the first remote control.
Deborah lives in a log cabin, on a lake in the woods a few hours outside of Chicago with her husband, Richard.

Hello, my name is Kim Henley and I am happy to share my love of fitness.
I have over 20 years of teaching experience in various expressions of Cardio, Weight Training and Yoga. My personal favorites are yoga and strength training.
I have developed a love for the beauty and strength of Vinyasa Yoga which is also called flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together. Vinyasa is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga. Vinyasa links breath to movement, so it’s more quickly paced and has a flowing rhythm. Power options as well as modifications are offered to suit each student’s goals. We also concentrate on strengthening the core in class.
I am certified Levels I and II through Yoga Fit.
I work for a local non-for profit; I am the mother of three daughters and I have one amazing grandson; I love to bike ride and be outdoors.

Psychic, Medium, Channel, and Animal Communicator
I have a thorough love and appreciation for science, the metaphysical, animal language and behavior and for supporting others to thrive. My work has allowed me to connect with people on a very personal, spiritual level. I assist others in connecting with loved ones who have passed, to receive guidance through channeling, and to communicate with their loved pets. My very deep respect for the animal kingdom, my knowledge and experience in animal behavior, and my reverence for all life has given me the opportunity to work with pet owners as they prepare to say goodbye to their pets at the end of their lives. I find this work incredibly fulfilling. I teach because I have been fortunate enough to learn from Great and Gifted teachers. What I have learned has allowed me to create for myself a life beyond my wildest dreams. That knowledge is to be shared. Sharing that knowledge has become my sacred life purpose. I created a business (New Earth Whispers) where I produce hand made, all natural, good for you, good for the earth skin care products. My line has expanded to include a dog line. I am in joy and in deep gratitude for all that I have received. I look forward to working others as we walk together through this amazing, magical journey we call life. Namaste. I am available for readings in my home, online, at your place, or on the telephone
