Who we are

 

Caitriona Reed and Michele Benzamin-Miki are co-founders of Five Changes as well as co-creators and stewards of the land at Manzanita Village Retreat

They have trained and mentored creatives, evolutionary leaders, visionaries, entrepreneurs, and spiritual seekers for three decades.

The range of their experience, and their lifelong commitment to learning and change, now blends contemporary brain-science with ancient mind-tools for deep personal, energetic, mindset change.

The depth of their wisdom, and their perspective as artist and poet, makes them uniquely suited to support and mentor smart, creative visionaries who march to the beat of their own drum.

Caitriona Reed

Cait has worked with entrepreneurs, environmental activists,  artists, iconic names in the entertainment industry, and visionaries ..  including a former White House staff member (from the Obama administration).

She has led retreats and workshops internationally for three decades and has guided thousands of individuals to embody rapid change for long-lasting real-world results. Her background includes monastic training in south Asia, Europe, and the US, thirty years as a teacher and student of Zen, as well as twenty-five years practicing and teaching hypnosis and NLP.

Originally from England, Caitrìona is a woman of transgendered experience – meaning that she was born and grew up as a male. She notes, “I finally learned that we owe it to ourselves, and to everyone, to become fully and authentically visible. If we are to step into our role as an evolutionary leader and co-create the world that we are longing for, we must first become aligned with the truth of our own Soul-Being.”
