Marci Lock

What you are most likely wanting to know is who is this chick really? Has she really been there, done that, does she truly have the results, and does she “Get it” and can she really guide others to the results as well?


What if you knew I experienced almost every deep trauma, programming of abuse,
suffering, sacrifice, lack, scarcity, hiding, fear, rejection and unworthiness you can

On my journey, I got to heal and come to peace with ALL areas of life, including
relationships, love, freedom, health and body alignment, self-worth, receiving of money,
pleasure, play, bliss, support, radical self-acceptance and of others, full expression and
safety in being seen, heard, taking up space and choosing the life that is perfect for me,
and much, much, much, much, more. 

Something I have preached for years is that “RESULTS DON’T LIE” because what you have and
are experiencing is a clear reflection of what you are committed to. Anyone can speak a big
game and post pretty pictures, yet for years I have coached the coaches, the high level leaders,
corporations and some of the biggest businesses in the world along with anyone and everyone
in my programs that are truly seeking their freedom and a life they love. 


I have the results I do because I truly lived the path of immense struggle, suffering, trauma, pain and deep limiting programs, beliefs, environments and conditioning that most people can’t believe because it is so much.

From my level of success and the results I’ve created in every area of my life, so many people
ask and want to hear the depths of my story, background of experiences, and what I truly came
from. To read a more in depth account of my story and learn more about my journey to
Bliss, Flow Consciousness and a life of Abundance and Liberation, watch the
documentary about my life.

Josh LaJaunie

Josh LaJaunie is an unabashed WhoDat and plant based running advocate. 

He grew up in Thibodaux, Louisiana where they proudly "live to eat!," Sadly, though, heart disease is responsible for tens of thousands of deaths per year in Louisiana, and, he now realizes that as a 400-pound 30-year-old, he was well on his way to a probable similar fate at a fairly young age. 


However, in the past few years he has lost over 200lbs and turned the tide on his health trajectory. Now, he spends most of his waking moments pounding the drum of plants and running as a way to achieve a natural, non-diseased, authentic human existence; and swinging a giant sledge hammer at the current health/nutrition paradigms. 

Granted, he may be a layman, but he is also the product of his own primary research. So, just hear him out. Peace.

Shay Bareni

Athlete, Olympic Hopeful High Jumper

Shahaf (Shay) Bareni first discovered her love of high jump as a 13-year-old living in the Golan Heights region of Israel. It was the kind of love that required an inordinate amount of dedication, particularly for an athlete in her early teens — each day, she traveled to Jerusalem to train, completing her homework on the three-hour bus ride there and back.

Then, at 18, she was drafted into the military. During her two years as part of the Israel Defense Forces, Bareni continued to train, spending three hours practicing high jump each day before returning to the base. 


She came to the US by way of a scholarship to University of North Texas and set the UNT high jump record with 1.83 meters at the 2012-13 NCAA Championship.  She is currently training for the Israeli Olympic High Jump Team

Shay's philosophy:  the belief that if you work hard — if you really want something — you can make it come true. How hard do you want this? Are you willing to give up because something is blocking your route? Find another way. That’s the journey of my life. You have to make it happen. Believe in yourself and stick to the plan.
