Meet your Facilitators:

Dr Gaynor du Perez (Mama G) was born with the gifts of mediumship and clairvoyance and has been communicating with her guides from a very young age.

Gaynor holds a Doctorate in Metaphysical Science and is also a qualified Herbalist, Aromatherapist, Reflexologist and Meridian Therapist, Massage Therapist, Reiki Master of various Reiki disciplines, Crystal Healer, Animal Communicator, Canine Ethologist, Past Life Regression Therapist, Munay Ki teacher (including the Rite of the Womb), Lightarian Attunement Facilitator, Ordained Metaphysical Minister, Shamanic Practitioner & Journeying Facilitator, Business Success Coach, NLP Trainer, Life Coach, Hypnotherapist, and Nusta Karpay teacher.

Registered with the Reiki Masters Association, International Natural Healers Association, the International Metaphysical Practitioners Association, Metaphysics Association of South Africa, World Metaphysical Association, the South African Modern Hypnotherapy Foundation and the Guided Meditation Therapy Institute of the UK. And American Union of NLP Practitioners.    

Gaynor and her family (including Emma) have returned to South Africa after their year and a half long spiritual sojourn in Mexico. In her spare time, Gaynor enjoys studying (currently enrolled in paranormal studies, Ufology and CPI training), and playing with her “ghost detector” equipment, as well as reading, walking through the jungle, drumming on her shamanic and djembe drums, and learning to play guitar.  Oh, and homeschooling her 2 young children, with the assistance of Emma, aka Nana.

Gaynor and Lee-Anne are the daughters of Emma and have been blessed with an ancestral heritage of psychic abilities and healing gifts, and wish to facilitate positive change in as many peoples lives as possible.

Gaynor received her spirit name 3 years ago from the spirit of Chief White Cloud, before learning about the Lakota legend of White Buffalo Calf Woman. Whilst drifting off to sleep, Gaynor was awoken by a light and a voice said to her “You are White Buffalo Woman”.  Being the joker that she is, she laughed and answered “Is that because I’m big and white?”  Spirit was not amused that she did not take him seriously and just “stood” there and glared at her as if he didn’t get the joke. She then asked what his name was and he answered “Chief White Cloud”.  The next day, as any rational person would do, she googled both Chief White Cloud, as well as White Buffalo Woman, and was startled and in awe of what she found.  Now to wait and see where this takes us … :)  

Dr Emma Bisschoff is the Vice Principal of Sunshine Academy. In Emma’s own words: For those that know me, aloha, for those who have not met me yet, I am a healer who reaches out to people. I truly believe that when we reach out with our hearts to others, miracles happen. I teach in a way that brings healing to many and gives them inspiration to find their AWESOMENESS.

I am a Reiki Master and have been blessed with an ancestral heritage of psychic abilities and healing gifts. I teach and facilitate a variety of metaphysical healing modalities including Animal Healing & Communication and the sacred Andean teachings of the Munay-Ki (including the Rite of the Womb), and Nustay Karpay . I am an Ordained Metaphysical Minister and travel all over sharing my gifts and teachings. 

A lover of life and people, I prefer to be seen as someone who may be trusted to be a fellow traveller for a while in the lives of those who are in dis-ease with their body, mind or soul until they are able to find themselves again and stand on their own feet on their own path.

Most of all, I am someone who wakes up every day and is thankful for the new opportunities each day brings.  My Higher selfs mission is loving service to the Divine and walking in the Light and empowering people to live their lives with integrity, listening to their own inner voice and teaching them skills where they can lift themselves up to their highest potential, and infusing them with joy, peace and clarity.

I don’t see life as a struggle, but rather as a journey through which fulfilment can be experienced. There is no situation where we cannot change our attitude or reaction to it. My philosophy is that anything we do is offering our gifts to the world for anyone who needs them.

Registered with Healing International, the Advanced Life Coaching Institute (UK), the Metaphysics Association of South Africa, the International Metaphysical Practitioners Association and the World Metaphysical Association.
