Michelle Bunting’s spiritual journey began in 2018 with a deep interest in past life regression. Prior to this first awakening, Michelle spent much of her free time dedicating herself to being in service to others through her board positions on various non-profits that served the interests of women, children, families, and underserved communities. Throughout these experiences, her ability to co-create the expansion of non-profits provided vehicles of opportunities to develop and market programs that would improve quality of life, provide needed educational information, elevate awareness of other community and service minded professionals, and leverage new and increasing revenue streams with which to grow the organization. She re-enters being in service through Circle of Miracles’ platform with excitement to be a part of this new and exciting team effort to serve local, national, and worldwide communities seeking experiential understandings of Unity Consciousness and global unconditional love.
Currently, Michelle has a private practice she calls, The Consciousness Cultivator. Shifting her continuing desire to operate in service to others and utilizing multi-pronged consciousness modalities, Michelle has helped many people of all ages and backgrounds awaken and expand their inner power, improve their lives, and construct the communication highway between the self and the Superconscious Mind (Soul).
Mindful of the best interests of humanity’s ascension and evolution, she assists seekers with accessing their own Akashic records by guiding people through their own Past Life Regression experiences (PLR) and Future Life Progression experiences (FLP), and redesigning their limiting belief systems through Live Channeling sessions, and Vibrational Coaching services as “now time” tools that transform and release latent spiritual spiritual abilities and assist in the evolution of human consciousness.
As an educator of the quantum mechanics of the Law of Attraction, Michelle navigates clients through the Process of Creating the Life You Want through her multi-pronged approaches and through her speaking engagements. Michelle provides her services as “now time” tools that are designed to transform spiritual growth and assist in the evolution of humanity’s consciousness.
Suzanne was drawn into The Circle of Miracles twenty years ago by her partner Vanet when services were held at Hannelore Goodwin’s spirit filled space before it moved to the present location in New Britain. Baxter, as she is referred to, had previously studied Reiki with Beth Gray as had Hannelore. Baxter was drawn to the warm and open welcoming of others on alternative spiritual paths at COM. At that point in time, Baxter was studying Kabbalah which led to her in depth involvement with the Keys of Enoch and the Academy of Future Science.
After completing graduate school in Minnesota, she had considered life as a Transcendental Meditation teacher with training in Spain, but was guided to pursue her career as a psychologist. This evolved through work with foster children, delinquents, as a school psychologist and several therapeutic modalities to her life’s calling as a private practice psychotherapist. Shortly after moving to Center City Philadelphia, she became involved with the Ecumenical Institute/Institute of Cultural Affairs which offered her an opportunity to be involved with their methodology for community work in India, Kenya and Peru. While working on another advanced degree in film and video, she directed a piece called “A Space Between” about using the spiritual principles in community development while in Peru. This was followed by a promotional video about a Metaphysical retreat center in Iquitos and a piece on Ayahuasca and the potential for psychedelics in psychotherapy which only recently has seen mainstream acceptance. She served as the camera person on a documentary about intentional spiritual communities across the country traveling in a fourseat vintage Cessna.
In the 90’s, Suzanne served in the non-profit sector as Chairman of the Board of Directors for Triangle Interests whose mission was to build a retirement community of like-minded women. To finance their projects a National Credit Union was created giving experience to the demands of working on a board. One of the members of that group reintroduced her to the Course of Miracles held at COM and facilitated by Gayle Dulcey which has expanded her unity consciousness and non-duality deepening. She had originally found ACIM while on a retreat in Findhorn, Scotland in the 70’s.
Suzanne balances a life of professional service with her love of adventure travel and awakening as a spiritual being. She has opened her heart and time accepting an invitation to join the on-going mission of The Circle of Miracles community expansion.

He currently lives in Chalfont with his wife Laura, an art therapist, and two children Micah and Elouise.
Anne is relatively new to Doylestown, but found Circle of Miracles shortly after moving here. The variety of subjects/speakers and the beautiful/meaningful prayers were immediately appealing.
Anne worked in various fields including scientific research, and later in the computer field as a systems programmer and project manager. She spent time living in India and appreciates many different aspects of spirituality. She hopes she can help Circle develop into an even more dynamic spiritual home.

Rev Jet Dana
Member at Large
Jet Dana has had a love for writing from the time she was a little girl, scribbling pages and pages of “stories” which no one could read. She grew up living in enchanted forests inhabited by mythical creatures.
Her obsession with all things mystical continued into adulthood, and while, as well as after, attending various schools focusing on writing, business, and computer graphics, she turned/returned to esoteric disciplines. She raised her children as a single mother working in communications management: telecom, internet, and marketing and advertising, simultaneously pursuing her avocation: her love of the Metaphysical.
Jet is a published writer, PA licensed (LMT) and nationally board certified (CMTB) Massage Therapist and Bodyworker (the energy side of therapy), a Neuromuscular Therapist, a Biodynamic Craniosacral Practitioner, (a certification in alignment with Shamanism) and a Circle of Miracles Interfaith/ Interspiritual Minister. She has now worked in the “Mind-Body-Spirit” disciplines for over a decade, with nearly a thousand clients a year, combining all the various elements… including spiritual coaching.
She has had stories and articles placed in various publications; has amassed a co-writing portfolio of various genres of music; has, with a co-writer, a completed feature-length film script; and has a book on the market through Publish America (GUP, an acronym for Growing up Psychic). Her newest book, set to be a series, is nearing completion. The result of a lifetime of research and study, Who You Are – Vol I, is a primer relating to what it means to have an energy body, live in an energy universe, and journey into Oneness.
Jet was active in community service with the United Way, Pottstown, PA (1973- 1980), serving her last year on their Board of Directors. She also served on the Board of Directors for Science and Spirituality (Dr. Thomas Padikal) from 6/2010 to approximately 6/2011.
She says about Circle… Due to the circumstances of my life, I felt like a plane struggling to stay in flight, flying in the face of a stiff head wind and turbulence. Getting to Circle and finally graduating from the ministry school was a turning point for me, raising my consciousness, instilling in me a more mindful approach to life, encouraging non-judgmental but critical thought, broadening my perspective, and allowing me to see the grace, the growth opportunities, in the challenges I faced… and my story is only one of many!
This is why I want to be part of helping Circle to broaden its outreach… to make these experiences available to more people who need what Circle has to offer!
Circle of Miracles is currently doing a search for a Spiritual Director. If you, or anyone you know, is an ordained interfaith minister and would be interested in this position, please reach out to the Board of Directors at BoardOfDirectors@CircleofMiracles.org or call Circle at 215-534-1699.
After moving to the USA from France in 1992; Rachelle married, moved to Warrington and took a self-hypnosis class. The class was taught by a wonderful woman – Circle founder Rev. Hannelore Goodwin. Rachelle felt a deep connection with Hannelore, who introduced her to Circle Celebrations. Rachelle joined the Celebrations briefly but stopped as the language barrier at the time made it challenging.
After having two children, divorcing, and her niece passing away, Rachelle welcomed her grandnephew to live with her. This was a difficult time for her, which inspired Rachelle to search for deeper meaning and she found herself again drawn to Circle of Miracles.
Two of her greatest loves are for our planet and animals. This love moved her to become a vegetarian 11 years ago, and a vegan for the past three. Rachelle also leads a sustainable life by eliminating single use items – all of which contributes to a more peaceful, meaningful, and spiritual existence.
Her love for nature is evidenced in Forest Bathing and the benefit the forest has to help us heal physically and emotionally. Wishing to share this newfound passion with others, she initiated monthly walks for Circle.
Back in France, Rachelle was blessed to have been an Expo Organizer – a position she loved which enabled her to tap into so many of her talents. She is excited for this opportunity to bring her expertise and gifts to Circle as Program Director.
“I am committed to bring a diversity of wonderful speakers and workshops for anyone in the community to feel and experience a new part of themselves.”
