Barbara A.Vahsen, CHC, HHP
H.E.L.P. EARTH PEACE Executive Director, EH Lecturer & Coach
As a teenager and young adult Barbara struggled to maintain a healthy weight while prescription and over-the-counter medications were a regular part of her regimen. She was diagnosed with borderline anemia and suffered from gastrointestinal disorders as a young adult. Medicines cured the symptoms but not the cause. She wanted to gain control over her health so at the age of 29 read The Original Health Principle Toward Ending Disease by David Fastiggi. By applying the concepts in this book, her overall health and quality of life improved. As an added bonus, her weight stopped fluctuating. The foods that best supported her health, tuned her body into its healthy set point. This opened the door to a lifetime of learning about what foods and practices work best to keep her, and the members of her family, happy and healthy which benefits everyone.
Out of a strong desire to improve the lives of others, Barbara obtained training and certification to practice Health Coaching at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and is a registered Holistic Health Practitioner by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. Upon graduation founded B Healthy-Live Well. Certified Group Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer from 1997-2000; 1983 Pace University Lubin School of Business graduate.
Marina Lebedinets, MA
H.E.L.P. EARTH PEACE Project Manager - Europe, Trilingual Mentor and Translator
From very early on in life, Marina felt two extremes very strongly: the beauty of life and its very opposite. She yearned for a wholesome understanding and hoped to achieve a higher existence through the perfection of the self. A deep desire to find solutions to a conflict both in and out of the self has shaped her life to a great extent. Participating in religious projects deepened her understanding of human motives, behavior, relationships and how spiritual development influences ethical values. Marina was fascinated by the depth of Eastern thought and studied its perspective on human development. The Teachings of Heaven and Earth introduced by David Fastiggi immensely supported her acquired knowledge as well as the experience her life had offered.
Since becoming part of the Eartheaven team, Marina has been sharing her profound insights which assisted with the universal language of the Eartheaven paradigm. A trilingual translator and speaker, Marina generously offers this expertise to the Foundation in written materials and programs.
