“Shifting One’s Perception”
Wilhelmina McKittrick was born and raised in The Netherlands, and moved to the USA in 2001, after a short stay in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. She is a mother, wife, and explorer of life. She works as a life-coach, author, and intuitive artist. She also serves others in her role as a hypnotherapist where she helps those she works with uncover the truth of their divine Self and Multi-Dimensional existence. She writes, “Being a native Dutch, living in the US, and working with people worldwide makes the world my playground.“
Wilhelmina shares her teachings through Dutch and English YouTube videos/radio shows, classes/workshops, and one-on-one consultations. She also passes on many of her understandings through two books she has written, Xsist-for Reflection and Contemplation with your Inner-Self (2005) and Self-Awareness–Rediscovering your Truth (2010). Wilhelmina says, “Many things interest me in life and I have experienced many different venues, tasks and activities that are all in the light of inner truth and self-empowerment.” Morning Star is fortunate to have her not only bless us with her insights during the service but also display some of her creative projects (art and jewelry perhaps) after the service. Check out her work and more information on her website www.xsist.org.

“I Must Confess: The Art of Really Letting Go”
Nathan Brown is an author, songwriter, and award-winning poet living in Wimberley, Texas. He holds a PhD in English and Journalism from the University of Oklahoma where he taught for seventeen years. He served as Poet Laureate for the State of Oklahoma in 2013/14, and now travels full-time performing readings and concerts, teaching workshops and speaking on creativity, poetry, songwriting, and creative writing from Tuscany to the Sisters Folk Festival in Oregon, the Taos Poetry Festival, the Woody Guthrie Festival, Laity Lodge, the Everwood Farmstead Foundation in Wisconsin, and for Blue Rock Artist Ranch near Austin, Texas.
At Morning Star Nathan will be reading from An Honest Day’s Confession, the final book in the trilogy he wrote as an encouragement to his daughter in the dark days of 2017 that enveloped this country and her world in particular. He’ll also speak to the unique ability of poetry and song, when they meet absolute honesty, to respond to the world’s needs more immediately than other forms of literature.

“Unlock Your Power – Transmute Pain and Hardship into Potential”
Kimia Maleki resides in Dallas, Texas with her beloved cat Kitty (aka Sid Vicious, KitKat, KittleBittle, and Angel Girl). As a spiritual alchemist, life botanist, and energy transmuter, Kimia creates safe spaces for others to explore and release difficult or challenging emotions. She says, “When we see things from a more objective point of view and are able to get out of our own way (conscious brain), our internal environment becomes more healing, creative, and growth-oriented, while our lives organically become more balanced and integrated.”
Ms. Maleki has spent the last few years in service to multiple non-profit organizations that are in alignment with her truth and values. She is a family facilitator at the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and a trainer for the National Child Traumatic Stress Network. She leads emotional regulation and art therapy classes for children who have recently experienced trauma. She is a master level teacher and practitioner of Usui Reiki, a traditional holistic Japanese healing modality, and also a practitioner of a gentle healing system that addresses stress and promotes balance in the body called B.E.S.T. (Bioenergetic Synchronization Technique).
For her talk at Morning Star, Kimia will discuss modalities she has found helpful in her own healing journey as well as in her work with others. Following the service she is offering a 1 hour workshop for those interested in applying some of the healing strategies she will share with us in her talk. See details below.

Would you like to learn basic steps for how to help yourself and others heal and achieve balance and ease in a world full of commotion, struggle, and daily obstacles? If so, this workshop is for you.
The intention of this informative and experiential workshop is to teach hands on techniques that create healing and promote stress and anxiety relief for YOU, your pets, your partner, children, friends, family, wounded birds – any living being in need of healing.
Some things you will learn are:
- how to update and synchronize yourself on both an emotional and physical level
- how to use the different polarities of your hands to manipulate energy and neutralize interferences
- how previous life experiences can still run your life in the present
With hands on tools, handouts, and specific techniques you will learn how to release “the issues in your tissues.” It is not unusual for workshop participants to experience the immediate release of pain and/or tension in areas of their body that carry stress, anxiety, grief, worry, and other heavy emotions.
