Kristin Balter

Kristin Balter, self-made, successful entrepreneur and spiritual guru, is the mastermind behind Kristin Balter Design and Build Your Life - a project and mentoring to design your life with purpose.  She is also the creator of the Magic Mastermind Series- a series of events happening around the globe which focus on tapping participants into their greatness and living their true purpose. 

The focus of the masterminds is to tap into abundance – thinking, living and co-creating. Participants learn to create millions, while simultaneously impacting millions. Balter says that "to find your purpose and give it back to the world" is the ultimate goal.

Kristin Balter uses a wealth of tools which allow participants to break from old patterns that are holding them down and create authentic power. The curriculum was developed to embolden participants to take control over their lives, career and financial well-being, while honouring their unique life paths.  "There is no right or wrong past, only the path to self acceptance and recognizing that NOW is the only thing that matters and what we have control over", says Balter.

Balter, daughter of an nationally published addictions neuroscientist, obtained her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Toronto and was heavily influenced and interested in the the science of the mind from a young age. It wasn't until after a lucrative and successful career in property and design, however, that she had her biggest shift in mindset and went back to her roots in psychology. 

"I had used everything I learned about mindset in psychology and focused my life on creating a big, successful, money making machine," said Balter, " I ignored all my intuitions and internal cues to true joy and happiness and focused on what I saw society emulating and teaching me was valuable."

It wasn't till after a successful career that I recognized, this is it?

"I realized most of the wealthy people around me were still struggling in mindset and happiness, even though from a societal perspective they were 'wealthy'. Inside they were empty, poor. "

Balter said , " I recognized the irony of my own work. I spent all this time creating exteriors and  beautiful homes for myself and others, but on the inside I was dying. Without purpose other than making money, what was I striving for?" 

Balter began to seek the help of numerous professional psychologists and went deep into mindset coaching. She traveled the world in search of teachers, coaches and seminars to change her own mindset. From the Chopra Center in Carlsbad where Deepak Chopra teaches from the benefits of mediation and perfect health, to deep into internal work and Shamanic breath work, yoga, and mediation deep in the jungles of Costa Rica. 

"I wouldn't stop until I found my truth and purpose and knew at my core this truth was what so many others needed. With purpose we find meaning, not value in money and the external, but the value within."

Balter founded and developed Kristin Balter Design and Build your Life - a project to design and build your life with purpose.  The focus of the program is on eliminating limiting self beliefs and shifting mindset, bringing old habits and limiting beliefs to the surface and providing participants empowering tools for change and alignment with their highest self. 

Kristin Balter now mentors both individuals and companies, and runs mastermind events around the globe from Bali to Spain and North America. 

She holds strong to the belief that each and every one of us has a purpose and gift to give back to this planet. 

It is her goal and highest purpose to help inspire, mentor and share the mindset tools that allow us to find the magic of who we are.

RODELIO AGLIBOT "The Food Buddha"

"To be a Chef is a privilege, it is the only art form that uses all five senses, that's how special it is..." 

Born in the Philippines and raised in Hawaii, Rodelio Aglibot had his first inkling that his professional calling in life would be cooking at a very early age, crediting his parents as his early culinary mentors. After watching his father cook at home as a child, Aglibot tried his own hand at the technique in a tree house with a hibachi grill and a can of Spam. Luckily, he didn’t burn his backyard to the ground, but it did set him off on a culinary path that he is following today — combining a lively and experimental energy with unique ingredients and a touch of surprise.

Known the world over by media outlets as “The Food Buddha,” because of his dedication to his heritage and his approach to menu development, Aglibot has been featured on many national television programs, from the CBS Morning Show to The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Aglibot continues his passion for knowledge and enlightenment. His unpretentious food style, knowledge of ingredients and exciting food traditions are trademarks to his personality. He lives his life by his own philosophy:

“A tragedy in life is not to find oneself and one’s passion…an even greater tragedy is to know one’s passion and deny oneself of its treasures.”
