Her understanding of both health and music has been permeated with the spiritual teachings received. As musician she led choral and vocal groups, creating new and innovative performances of original music. As singer, she led her own group (“Sophisticated Lady”) in regular performances on the Melbourne musical scene. In 1992 she combined both talents as performer and healer in creating a CD of music for meditation purposes, “Footsteps, Music for the Third Millennium”, which received extensive ABC airplay. Her other Cds include “Sophisticated Lady The Power of Soft, and “Sophisticated Lady Trio”. Currently Sophisticated Lady can be heard in venues throughout Australia.

Melody was ordained in 1996 as one of the inaugural “Free Priests”. Since then she has been one of the leaders of the 'movement', carrying on the work of her teacher, Rev Mario Schoenmaker. Her time is divided between her work as performer, and training, preparing and inducting new people into the Free Priest Movement.

1978 until Mario's death in 1997. He was ordained at his hand in November 1987. He is an accomplished musician and composer, and has written many religious musical works, jazz pieces and humorous songs. He is the composer and pianist on the CD “Footsteps - Music for the Third Millennium”, which received extensive ABC airplay in 1992. His other CDs include “Sophisticated Lady” The Power of Soft and “In The Service of Healing”.

He taught Metaphysics, and Esoteric Studies in the College founded by Rev Mario in Perth, and was also trained by him to undertake the Spiritual Readings - as described in the book “The New Clairvoyance”, and on this website. John has been doing this for ten years now, which is quite some feat for a scientist! He is the only one of Rev Mario's students to carry on this aspect of the work. He had done Astrology and Tarot Readings for twenty years prior. He is currently engaged in translating certain sections of the “Corpus Hermeticum”, and is one of the leaders of the 'movement' - training, preparing and inducting new people into the Free Priest Movement.
