Meet Your Hosts...

We've been chosen-family since sophomore year of high school (at least in this lifetime!), and know the healing power of soul sisterhood. Our vision for Unearthed was born from a mutual passion for supporting women to see and embody their unique inner and outer beauty, and ultimately to anchor a deep sense of self-love and acceptance. We are so excited to join in circle with you this Fall Equinox!


Tess Meissner, 

CCHT & Shamanic Practitioner

As a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and shamanic practitioner, I dynamically combine ancient and contemporary healing methods for soul exploration, excavation and transmutation! I guide individuals beyond the veil of their conscious everyday awareness, to access the deep wisdom held in their bodies, hearts, and Higher Self.

Jonelle Tonkin,


They say that eyes are the windows to the soul. As a photographer, the camera lens becomes an extension of my eyes, and a conduit for capturing an impression of the true essence of my subject. I get to show people the unique beauty within them that they might not see when they look in the mirror each day...



“Tess has this way where the work is both accessible and deeply transformative. I’ve done some of my most intensive healing work with her and would recommend her for anyone looking to learn a bit more about themselves. 

Jonelle captures soul in her pictures. She is able to pull heart and spirit from the eyes of her subjects and project them into gorgeous photos. She encourages one’s pure essence to shine brightly. 

I love the work of both these women and can hardly fathom the magic they are capable of co-creating!”

Tess has this truly special way of drawing out my naturalness, sinking me deeper and deeper into undiscovered realms of my essence and my power.

Jonelle is the queen of capturing beauty and form in an open, fun, and 100% collaborative way.

Putting these two resources together is like gold.
