ALY CARDINALLI

Headmaster

Aly has also been a seer of spirits and ghosts, while hiding these gifts from the public.  Recently, and with the support of his family, he decided to disrobe his fear of judgment and has been helping other sensitives and those who need his gift ever since.  Aly enjoys healing others' trauma through soul retrieval, introducing clients to their spirit guides, and coaching sensitives into a realitiy that accepts them while they manage their spirituality with their every day world. Aly is clairsentient, meaning that he quite literally experiences the physical body, thoughts, feelings, and memories of other people and the deceased.  He feels their aches, their health, their sadness, their joys, and much more.  This unique gift allows spirit to move Aly towards answers as a vessel to speak to his clients.  Aly is also clairvoyant, claircognizant, and clairtangent, making him the perfect lie detector.

Aly Cardinalli is a professional psychic medium and modern witch-doctor who grew up in Hawai’i and Nevada. He is a practitioner in Benedicaria, well versed in witchcraft, folk magic, Voodoo, the Orisha, Ifa, Stregheria, Druidism, and world cultural occult studies. Since he was a child, he was always able to read people's intentions, allow them to pour out their stories, and to give them personalized help based on their private histories and experiences. Ask anyone who has been a student of Aly and they'll say, "you just can't lie to him. He knows."  Also, since Aly can experience the feelings of others, he can read other mediums, clarifying messages and meanings of how Spirit talks to other psychics.  Uniquely, Aly is the psychic who literally understands what other psychics go through in day to day life.

NORIBELLE ORDONO

Instructor

Noribelle Ordono is a digital creator, witch, and Kundalini Yoga Teacher.
From a young age she was interested in the occult -- from researching the natural world, exploring astrology, and even crafting items for fun.
Then in 2012, Noribelle had just graduated high school and felt extremely uncertain about her path and purpose in life.
So as a means to find spiritual direction, she began to practice kundalini yoga. And with her search for a roadmap to follow, she also dove deeper into her occult studies and exploration.
A few years (and a better sense of direction) later, Noribelle completed her BBA in Supply Chain and Operations Management. This then led her to manage and grow an award-winning yoga studio.
This is where Noribelle earned her 50-hour Meditation Specialist Certification and finished her 300-hour Hatha and Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training.
She was also involved in the development and coordination of these education programs, where she acted as a teacher assistant, student advisor and community leader.
Today, Noribelle's goal is to guide people to lead their lives authentically with focus and direction, so that they can become leaders within their own communities. 
This is because she believes that, "if we can take lead in our own lives, we can create a positive impact within the lives of the people we encounter, and eventually, we might even be able to create change within the greater world."
