Erin Dietz
Business Owner of BodyWise
From Vision to Reality

Erin Dietz, is a dedicated massage therapist and business owner. First and foremost, Erin is a proud mother to two children, Tayton, 15, and Tessa, 13. Erin’s kids lost their father to suicide in October of 2016. What started as a conversation between Erin and Tayton about Tayton’s father and how Tayton was feeling, turned into a plan to help people who did not have access to basic life needs. Tayton profoundly stated, “I just want to go to Africa and feed starving kids.” In that moment Erin decided that she and her son would travel to Africa and do just that. What better way is there to heal than to take a look at the big picture and turn this tragedy into a driving force of purpose? Erin will talk about their healing journey; what they saw, felt and experienced. Suicide has touched many of our lives. Survivors are left with so many different emotions. Hear what one family did to ensure that losing their loved one would lead to a life of purpose rather than a life engulfed in sorrow.

Heather Petersen

Activating the power of the feminine.

While on a life-changing trip to Egypt, Heather was initiated into understanding the profound embodiment of aligned feminine energy. Traveling with a beautiful group of supportive women, whom she had never met, she forged deep relationships with her goddess sisters on this trip.

By experiencing the feminine gifts of surrender, manifestation, non-judgement, and self-love these new friendships held no competition, only a deep nourishment and healing. On a new introductory path of feminine awareness their worlds were all about to change forever.

Heather was so strongly moved by this experience her desire is to share the nourishing principles of the feminine with many more women.

This vision birthed The Femme Farm™.

She holds the dream of strengthening women’s awareness to embrace the magic of their feminine nature. As she believes it is time for women to stand in their birthright collectively within this powerful sisterhood!
