Cynthia Ann Drew Barnes, PhD is a mother and shamaness of the woo-woo sisters’ clan. Born and reared in Chicago, Illinois, where she found herself living again several years ago after many years living in faraway places, she has been blessed with opportunities to do many things in her life. She is now not just working on doing a great deal but also of being more of the person she was sent to planet earth to be.
She has a fine son, who has been the greatest gift of her life. He continues to find and define himself and will ultimately be a greater gift to the planet than he has already been.
Dr. Barnes has spent much of her career as an educator, someone who works tirelessly to draw out of others that which they do not yet know they have inside them.
For those of you who care, Cynthia has a BA in psychology from the University of Illinois at Chicago, an MAT (teaching) from Northwestern University, an MA from Fielding Graduate University in organization development, and a PhD from Fielding Graduate University in human and organizational systems.
She has spent her years as a bringer—not a taker—to this party of life and has many family, friends, and colleagues whom she loves and who love her.
