Tameika is co-founder of the Mystic Roots Conference, and it’s sponsor Spirits of the Earth Festival. She is web-mistress, graphic designer, registration coordinator, program designer, treasurer, wife, friend, and wine faery! You will typically see Tameika running around in something that glitters or jingles ensuring that everything is running smoothly, and everyone is having a Fantabulous time! She encourages everyone to come and say “hey” or introduce yourself if your new.
Is the other half of the Mystic Roots conference, and it’s sponsor Spirits of the Earth Festival. In addition to heading up our security team, finding new talent, and being our master publicist he is also our marketing man extraordinaire! Befitting of his name, he is as quick and sly as a Fox spreading news like lightening to inform the community of all the incredible events we and our amazing staff offer. Not to mention his ability to offer strength & stability to the team. During the daylight, Fox is busying himself with odd tasks to ensure everything runs according to schedule (aka Tameika’s Huney Do List). In the evening he lets his tail out, picks up his drum and starts to build a sacred atmosphere, that reaches beyond space and time.
Diana is Tameika’s sister... Diana is still searching for the path that fits perfectly with her, but she loves meeting new people from all walks of life. Once she gains her focus, she has the ability to accomplish the impossible. One of her greatest strengths is her ability to “go with the flow”. Diana will also be wandering around with her camera, to capture all the wonderful moments at Mystic Roots. You will meet Diana at the Registration table, with a big shining smile, and a presence so full of bubbly energy that you’ll be saying “I want, whatever she is having”.
Mike (Sheepdog) joined the security team at Spirits of the Earth festival in 2008. Unfortunately he had to take a year off due to medical restrictions...however he is definitely ready to jump back in the saddle. Now Mike will be co-head of our security team at Mystic Roots. Usually you will find Mike smiling, laughing, and having a grand time…that is unless you are doing something you shouldn’t be. Let’s all focus on keeping the sheepdog happy!
MysticOak has been on board with the Spirits of the Earth for the last 7yrs. Being a registered nurse she heads up our first aid department, originally she join our maintenance team (aka toilet paper provider), and currently runs our Registration. MysticOak was eager to jump on board with the Mystic Roots conference as soon as she heard she didn’t have to stock the bathrooms. MysticOak joined the Mhorag Circle in 2009, and continues to learn, and offer her knowledge and support. If you see flashes coming from all angles, you will probably find it’s MysticOak hiding behind the lens….so just spin around and strike a pose!
We first met Gus at the Spirits of the Earth Festival 2004, he pulled in as the sun was beginning to rise over the horizon opening day. Ever since then Gus holds a special place in our hearts. Gus enthusiastically jumped on board with Mystic Roots Conference. He has join edus on a mission to unite south-western Ontario communities. Our very own “Uncle Money Bags” has been a saving grace as our Vendor coordinator for both SOTEF and MRC. Gus not only promotes Ontario’s events, but helps local artisans and vendors find venues to sell their wares. You may just find our “Naughty Gnome” skipping around with a t-shirt promoting a service, only he can get away with ;O)
Tracy energetically joined our team at the Spirits of the Earth Festival last yearas Lady Kiki, our kitchen witch. So naturally she was just as eager to jump on board with the Mystic Roots Conference when we asked if she would like to join the team working Registration...maybe even more excited when she found out that someone else does the cooking (hehehe). But seriously this girl never ceases to amaze me...whether it’s with her constant smile, or creative spark she can light up any room. This girl brings us all back to a time of no stresses...its all about good friends and good times….and she makes sure this happens by dropping her epic one-liners that will have you giggling for the rest of the day. Since Tracy won’t be in the Kitchen at MRC...perhaps we can find another reason to call her “Lady Kiki”….hmmm could it involve a brass pole?
