Astrology Workshop Facilitator / Astrology Reader / Author
John became interested in the Mystic Arts at 17. Although he calls himself eclectic, the source of most of his studies has been three St. Germain Projects. He has lived and worked all over the world. Working on computers in 65 factories, gave him the exposure to thousands of people. He interviewed them, after hours, as part of his study of Astrological Sun Signs and how they affect Human Relationships. His book “What’s BUNK About Astrology” is a conclusion of that 49 year study. John leads Astrology workshops at The Realm. He also offers Astrology Readings!

Hey, my name is Cory. I’ve been studying the true nature of reality, consciousness, &/or metaphysics since 2015. Since then, I’ve wanted answers to all the existential questions you can think of and found more than I could have imagined. In doing so, I realized the sheer scale of what humans can be conscious of. I can sense the extent of human perception and what is beyond human perception, and I can confidently say I am no master compared to the people and nonphysical beings that I learn from... not even close, but relative to the average person, I might be a bit more conscious to what is going on and how life functions and that is why I’m here to teach.
Anyways I’m happy to help anyone who genuinely wants to know the truth… about that which lies within & beyond relativity.
Cory leads a series called “Satsang Discussions”, which includes an array of topics around consciousness, dimensions, channeling, soul contracts, aliens and more! We are so excited to have Cory on our team!

I was born in South Bend and I've stayed local all my life. I have a degree from IUSB in Secondary Education - English/Language Arts. After a couple of years of subbing, I realized that while I enjoy education and leadership, teaching in a classroom is not for me (classroom management is exhausting!) I now have a career in business management in the animal field. I am married and together my amazing and caring husband and I have a 5 year old son (so funny, sweet and kind), a dog (bossy and crazy and perfect) and a goldfish (social, but skittish around new people). I love board games, crafting (especially cross stitch!), reading, listening to podcasts, kayaking, hiking, hanging out at the lake, visiting national parks, going on adventures, learning/trying new things, and... ok so I can pretty much get on board with and be excited about anything! I also love my crystals, my oracle card decks, meditation, and journaling. I'm on a journey of learning to love and accept myself, rediscovering my true self, healing emotional and mental wounds, and adding some calm and peace to my life. I recently started yoga and I'm so happy that I did! I'm excited to be a part of The Quantum Realm community who have welcomed me so fully and warmly!
I was born in East Detroit, yet lived most of my formative years in the small farming community of St Johns, Michigan. I went to college at Michigan State and eventually moved out west to San Francisco where I met and married my husband of 30 years. My career, before the "stay at home mom" years entailed working for Birkenstock Footwear USA, where I became Advertising manager for local, regional and national marketing campaigns. I have always looked fondly on those years as we comfortably wore our Birks to work and each had our own gardening plot that we were able to easily retreat to as stresses of the day fell upon us. We also participated in plenty of Earth day events and wellness festivals all over the country. In this, I now happily have found a very similar vibe at The Quantum Realm Institute.
After having moved from coast to coast, we finally settled back in the midwest where my story first began. I am finally at a point in life where I can fully connect with myself again and embrace all of life's treasures from an entirely new perspective.
The Quantum Realm Institute stepped into my life meaningfully, purposefully and in perfect synchronicity...as I believe was always intended. I cannot express how lovely it is to be surrounded by intentional peace, warmth and serenity that seems to flow naturally through all who work here. Many thanks for allowing me to be a part of The Quantum Realm family!
