Instructor Bio:

I'm Rev. Pamela "Mela" Borawski, CHt (Certified Hypnotherapist). I'm an ordained pagan minister, and have followed an earth-centered spiritual path for over 20 years. I created 3 Rays of Light LLC after my graduation as an integrative healing arts practitioner, and I focus on healing the mind, body and spirit using various healing modalities including hypnosis. I've been teaching in the community and overseas over 30 years (since I was 16!), and teaching is my passion. I'm 49 years old, married for 25 years, and have two adult children. I currently have 5 goats, 8 chickens, 3 dogs, and 4 cats. I host a witchy podcast called Belle, Book & Candle where we talk all sorts of witchy and metaphysical topics.
