Lisa is aware life can throw curveballs our way and how easy it is to become caught up in everything around us. We have a tendency to forget to pay attention to the most important person in our lives - ourselves! Lisa knows the importance of making ourselves a priority so we can live a more nourished, fulfilling and balanced life. 

Lisa is Founder of Coaching with Lisa and Wow Tutors. She completed her International Coaching Federation (ICF) Certification at Ideal Coaching Global School in Los Angeles, California in 2018. She graduated from the University of New Mexico with a Bachelors in Spanish Literature and Family Studies and has also had the opportunity to study at the University of Exeter, UK. During her career she taught English at the American Church in Paris, France, worked at the University of New Mexico and at Great Hearts Academy in Arlington, TX. The  experience in each one of these places of employment gave her unique and knowledgeable perspectives, and aptly prepared her for the Life Coach and teacher she is today.

Currently, Lisa works with students inside and outside the classroom by providing them with the necessary tools to help build their self-esteem, which will in turn give them confidence. Confidence will help children feel good about themselves and try new things.They are more likely to try their best and they feel proud of what they can do. 

She also incorporates her Life Coaching skills as a teacher and Emotional Intelligence skills to coach mom & dads overcome fears and obstacles that they may be facing and help them feel confident!

Having the opportunity to bring my experience and dedication to the retreat as a Life Coach and Teacher would be a tremendous honor.

Charlene R. Johnson

Charlene R Johnson

Under the direct tutelage of world renowned, Dr. Douglas Baker, B.A., M.R.C.S., L.R.C.P. Charlene earned her Bachelor of Metaphysics and Esoteric Astrology degrees from Claregate College in England. Charlene grew up the daughter of an Episcopalian minister but her first spiritual love was the lifeways and spiritual beliefs of Native American traditions, something she actively put to use in her Florida Park Service career as a living history interpreter. A very shy child, and a social inept in her 20s, Charlene realized in the early 1970s that she needed to do something to shift herself or she would never make it in an adult world. She began reading self-help books at a time when few existed and stumbled onto astrology. Study of the stars meshed well with her understandings of Native American teachings. She taught herself how to cast charts the old-fashioned way, by doing the math! Her first Ah Hah! moment was realizing that people perceive the world through different filters, and that they are set up that way! She quickly realized it a useful tool for relating to people and understanding where they were coming from. She would use it as a personal tool for the rest of her life.

A couple of her formal careers include the thoroughbred industry, the Florida Park Service, a museum and conference center director and always, she was a writer. Today, she has several books, thousands of articles and columns, and the editorship of a magazine behind her. In the early 1990s, she discovered Dr. Douglas Baker and Esoteric Astrology as well as the other Esoteric Sciences which provide answers to the deeper questions of life. This was the final key to picking up her astrology bundle. At the encouragement of her teacher, she became his first professional esoteric astrologer in America in 2000. Successful from the first thanks to working with therapists and counselors who believed in her work, she has given readings and written reports for folks all over the world. She regularly lectures and teaches in the U.S.A. and Canada. Since the pandemic her zoom classes have expanded in numbers of students as well as topics dramatically. She offers classes in Esoteric Astrology and several of the other Ancient Wisdom teachings sometimes in collaboration with other Claregate graduates. She writes a monthly Esoteric Astrology column for the Questa Newspaper in Questa, NM. In 2020, SkyDance Astrology celebrated 20 years of existence.
