A world-acclaimed expert in feng shui and space clearing, Denise has distilled the information and wisdom into her teachings that she gained from indigenous cultures around the planet— the aborigines of Australia, the Zulu in Africa, the Maori of New Zealand (where she was given the title of tohunga), as well as from her own Native American roots.
Denise has taught seminars in 20 countries and has written 15 books, including the best-selling, Sacred Space, and Soul Coaching as well as her personal memoir, If I Can Forgive, So Can You! Her books have been translated into 26 languages, and she has been a featured guest on Oprah, Lifetime, Discovery Channel, BBC TV, NBC and CBS. She is also the founder of the International Institute of Soul Coaching.
On their land, they have a small orchard with 15 different kinds of fruit, 100 grapevines for home-made wine and grape juice, olive trees for olives, and a large organic garden. Whenever possible Denise and David use the bounty of their land to help supply food for the retreats held there. The land also offers sanctuary for many kinds of birds and animals. Summerhill Ranch is host to bobcats, coyotes, badgers, foxes-gray and red, porcupines, skunks, voles, moles, raccoons, pack rats and an occasion mountain lion, as well as over 40 different kinds of birds.
Denise and her husband, David, live at Summerhill Ranch in the wine country of the Central Coast of California with their two dogs, Pepper and Sadie, and with their five chickens. Their home is located on 40 acres of oak-covered hills surrounded by vineyards with the Santa Lucia Mountains in the distance. To the far west is the Big Sur coastline where cliffs drop suddenly into the crashing surf of the Pacific Ocean. And to the far south are vast sand dunes delicately carved by sea breezes. To the east is the Corizo Plain which is awash with brilliant wildflowers in the spring. At night the stars sparkle in the crisp night air of Summerhill, while owls hoots and coyotes howl in their nightly chorus.
