 Lee-Anne Brandt

Workshop Facilitator

Lee-Anne Brandt is the Cape Town representative of Sunshine and is a crystal healer in that she not only facilitates healing through crystals, but she heals the crystals!!  This occurs naturally through interaction with the crystals. Lee-Anne is a Reiki Master, Crystal Healer and a clairsentient empath, registered with the Metaphysical Association of South Africa. She has developed an exciting method of combining both Reiki and crystals into a unique healing modality. Lee-Anne was chosen by her first crystal at aged 8, at around which time she discovered her healing abilities. From early childhood Lee-Anne has been in regular contact with other-worldly beings. The next few years were spent in denial before a cosmic awakening in 2009 shifted her spirituality and allowed her to realise her origins and purpose.

Lee-Anne runs crystal workshops for newbies to the sparkly path in Cape Town, as well as Crystal Practitioner, Munay Ki and Reiki Levels 1 to Advanced workshops. Lee-Anne has been an integral part of the development of the Crystal Reflexology course.  Lee-Anne also does Lithomancy readings (crystal divining) and photo readings. When she is not waving her wands around or working with her stones, she spends time with her family in Cape Town.

Emma Bisschoff

Vice Principal, Student Liaison and Course creator


Dr Emma Bisschoff is the Vice Principal of Sunshine Academy.  She grades all the assignments and liaises with our students. Emma holds a doctorate in Philosophy.

Emma has studied many different modalities and is still constantly studying new material. Emma loves creating new courses – to date she has created more than 50 courses which can be found in the shop area of the website.

In Emma’s own words:  I truly believe that when we reach out with our hearts to others, miracles happen. I teach in a way that brings healing to many and gives them inspiration to find their AWESOMENESS.

I teach and facilitate a variety of metaphysical modalities and am a teacher of Animal Healing & Communication, Munay-Ki, Rite of the Womb, Nustay Karpay, Ashati, Celestial Lightbody, Usui Reiki and various other Reiki system, Reiki of the Atlanteans, Dragon Energy, Rainbow Reiki (Reiki of the 7 Rays), Ancient Healing Systems, Herbalism, Essential Oils, Shamanism, Holistic Wellness, Lightarian, Animal Reiki, Clutter Clearing, Space Clearing, Energy Healing, Meditation, Mindfulness, Shamanic Soul Recovery, Shamanic Dreamweaving, Ho’opo’nopono, Chakra Healing, Hawaiian Healing, Egyptian Energies and Psychic Development to mention a few. I am also an Ordained Metaphysical Minister.

A lover of life and people, I prefer to be seen as someone who may be trusted to be a fellow traveler for a while in the lives of those who are in dis-ease with their body, mind or soul until they are able to find themselves again and stand on their own feet on their own path.

Most of all, I am someone who wakes up every day and is thankful for the new opportunities each day brings.  My Higher self’s mission is loving service to the Divine and walking in the Light and empowering people to live their lives with integrity, listening to their own inner voice and teaching them skills where they can lift themselves up to their highest potential, and infusing them with joy, peace and clarity.

I don’t see life as a struggle, but rather as a journey through which fulfillment can be experienced. There is no situation where we cannot change our attitude or reaction to it. My philosophy is that anything we do is offering our gifts to the world for anyone who needs them.
