THE IGNITE YOUR LIGHT COALITION
Founding Director and President of the Ignite Your Light Coalition, Ani Christi, also known as Ann Johnston, brings over three decades of experience in transforming consciousness to the projects of the Coalition. A former mediator and licensed attorney, Ani now describes herself as a consciousness educator. She has lectured internationally on inner and outer peacemaking and conflict resolution and is a sought out public speaker. She has also designed and helped implement numerous pilot programs in social service, including alternatives to incarceration for chemically addicted, non-violent offenders. Ani holds a Master's Degree in Interdisciplinary Consciousness Studies. She has been recognized as a new paradigm leader and was named Alumna of the Year in 1998. In addition to expertise in transpersonal psychology, Ani is a cancer survivor who utilized holistic techniques of mind-body-spirit integration to help heal her own cancer. She is also an accomplished meditation teacher and energy healer. Ani has devoted herself to mastery of the Gene Keys since 2016 and is now a Gene Keys Guide. The Coalition is also a Gene Keys Affiliate. Through Ani's vision the Coalition is inspired to do its part to facilitate humanity's transformation. Ani's spiritual memoir, Awakening to Love and a Sacred Life, was published by the Coalition in 2021. Ani has since written chapters for two upcoming books designed to heal trauma and remove the stigma from mental illness.
An active volunteer member of The Ignite Your Light Coalition since its founding in 2014, Jerry is now the Coalition Treasurer and a Director. Jerry and Ani have been life partners and soul mates since they met in 1986. Together, they have faced and overcome the many trials Ani describes in her published book, Awakening to Love and a Sacred Life. The book also includes a beautiful chapter authored by Jerry. Steady, calm, and unflappable, Jerry is the rock on which the Coalition has relied for the many unpaid tasks a "Volunteer Director" fulfills. We could not have done any of this without you, Jerry! From the perspective of the Gene Keys, "Honour", "Majesty", "Valor", "Wisdom", "Tenderness", "Devotion", and "Empathy" are the essence of who you are. We were amazed -- but not surprised -- to see these divine gifts (siddhis) in your Gene Keys profile. This means you embody many of the qualities the Ignite Your Light Coalition is devoted to sharing with (and to helping instill in) others. We thank you for your selfless service to so many.
