Bio:

Shelley Buck

“Shelley Buck was born into a creative family in the Midwest and moved to California after college to follow her dream of working for Disney. It was there she met and fell in love with her husband, Chris, who worked in animation. After they married and had their first child, Ryder, she stayed home to be a full-time mom to him and the two brothers who followed.

She is a storyteller and artist, which she expresses through her original jewelry at ShelRae Designs. When Ryder was diagnosed with cancer and the
journey went to unimaginable places, she poured her heart into writing their story. Her lessons in parenting through these tribulations, combined with the power of Ryder’s larger-than-life spirit, offer profound messages for living in the light.”

Kathy Curtis

“Kathy Curtis moved into Shelley’s neighborhood when they were both 12 years old and an instant, lifelong friendship took root. She has worked as a healing artist and writer since 1991. Her programs support the transformation of grief, illness, and
emotional barriers through creative expression. She is the author of Invisible Ink, a memoir about her own journey through grief. The unique writing process that brought her so much healing has since become a successful program, online and at various venues in the Midwest.

Kathy’s intimate connection to the Buck family, combined with her writing and healing background, made her the perfect person to partner with Shelley on the creation of this book.”

Ryder Buck

“Ryder Buck lived a short but charmed life on the west coast, where he practiced yoga, fell in and out of love, and formed an indie band, Ryder Buck & the Breakers,
that made waves all across the LA area. After a 9-month battle with cancer, Ryder
emerged disease-free and fearlessly followed his dreams of changing people’s lives
through his music. When tragedy met him on a dark highway, the light he had so
fiercely protected throughout his life became limitless. His words and songs continue to carry that light forward. Ryder received the Flame of Hope Award (posthumously) from a local cancer facility where he and his band played for cancer survivors.”

Bio:

Melanie Gibson began taekwondo training at age ten. At age twelve she stopped taekwondo to pursue other interests, and resumed training in her early thirties.

Although Melanie had academic and career achievements throughout her life, she struggled with mental illness and low self-esteem. After making some progress through psychiatric treatment and counseling, she knew she needed to do something more substantial to make lasting changes. Returning to taekwondo had always been in the back of her mind, and the timing was right. 

Taekwondo proved to be not only an opportunity to re-learn a beloved skill from her childhood, but also a means to build her self-esteem and confidence, and heal from old wounds. It brought a needed excitement and purpose to her life, which she shares in her blog Little Black Belt (http://littleblackbelt.com). While continuing to work at her full-time job, Melanie dedicated herself to taekwondo training and earned her first degree black belt in 2015. In 2017, she earned her second degree black belt. Although a pandemic and knee injury sidelined her training in 2020, Melanie plans to return to taekwondo and test for her third degree black belt. 

She has a bachelor’s degree in English from Texas Woman’s University, a Master of Library Science from the University of North Texas, and an MBA from the University of Texas at Arlington. Melanie has worked in the healthcare industry since 2004, with roles as a hospital librarian, corporate trainer, and learning designer.

Krista Nerestant – The Hidden Gifts of Trauma; Self-ish Lifestyle; & Hypnosis



I enjoyed this beautiful conversation as I learned much from Krista Nerestant, founder of Self-ish Lifestyle, wellness expert, author, medium, life coach, and hypnotist. Please join us as we discuss:

  • Krista’s insights on the hidden gifts of trauma
  • her philosophies on healing modalities
  • what she means by “self-ish lifestyle”
  • her role as a hypnotist
  • and so much more!

Welcome to The Healing Place Podcast! I am your host, Teri Wellbrock. You can listen in on Pandora, iTunesBlubrrySpotify, iHeartRadio, Stitcher, Deezer, Google Podcasts, Amazon Music, and more, or directly on my website at www.teriwellbrock.com/podcasts/. You can also catch soundbites of our insightful interview on YouTube.

Bio:

Krista Nerestant is a practicing life coach, educated and certified in Neuro Linguistic Programming and The Satir Method of Transformational Systemic Therapy to heal family dynamics and trauma, and an advocate for women and children. She hosts a podcast, Self-Care Tuesdays, that is dedicated to encouraging, empowering and elevating the journey of self-care. She’s teaching women it’s OK to be “Self-ish”!  

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is a psychological approach that involves analyzing strategies used by successful individuals and applying them to reach a personal goal. It relates thoughts, language, and patterns of behavior learned through experience to specific outcomes. 

Proponents of NLP assume all human action is positive. Therefore, if a plan fails or the unexpected happens, the experience is neither good nor bad—it simply presents more useful information.

Satir’s Transformational Systemic Therapy Model (STST) is unique in encompassing both the intrapsychic and interactive components of therapy. Much therapy of the past has been focused only on clients’ behaviour, cognition or affect. The Satir Model is focused on the whole human being, tapping into their internal resources and universal yearnings to facilitate transformational change within their personal, family, and social systems. The Satir Model process facilitates development of increased levels of competence and congruence in the therapist.

STST processes are supported by therapeutic and neurobiological research. Evidence-based research supports experiential, systemic, positively directional and change focused therapeutic processes to bring about neurological changes in clients. STST emphasizes that therapists create and provide the conditions for attachment, hope, positive possibilities and safety in order to facilitate change.

Bio:

Brett Weiss spent twenty-three years in the software business, four years running a social services organization and eighteen years as a high school social studies teacher.  In 2009 he made a volunteer trip to Kenya and spent most of three weeks in the tiny village of Dago.  Little did he know then that these kind and hard- working people would become a major part of his life.  In 2012 he created the Weiss Scholarship Foundation.  In 2017 Brett “retired” so he could devote full time to this work.

Brett created the Weiss Scholarship Foundation to give HOPE in a village where there was little hope.  Six trips later 79 children from this village have been awarded scholarships.  Our program sends children to high school and then to either university or vocational school.  So far, we have 13 students at vocational schools and 9 attending university.  This is a village where few have ever gone to high school.  A key rule of our foundation is all money is divided equally between boys and girls. We do much more than just pay school fees.  We have staff on the ground that make sure our students are fully supported so they can be successful. 

Brett wrote a book about this work called, “Just Give Them A Hug…And The Rest Is Easy”.  He looks forward to sharing this great story with you.  We believe that we can create a world where every child gets a great education.

This foundation has grown a lot since Brett last spoke to the club and looks forward to sharing the story with you.  We have built a great business model and are now looking to scale the model so we can help many more children.

Brett and his wife Christine are the parents of two and grandparents of two.
