On 27 July 1999, 21-year-old Tiffany Johnson stared death in the face when she miraculously survived one of Switzerland's worst natural disasters, the Saxtenbach Gorge Canyoning Disaster. When a landslide and flash flood hit the Saxetenbach Gorge that day it claimed the lives of 21 young people. This horrific event sent shockwaves around the globe, making headlines as only six were pulled from the treacherous waters that day. Tiffany is one of those survivors.
Thunderous water gushed all around me. I surrendered my body as I was swept away by the ravaging floodwaters. I saw my life playing out like a series of snapshots. I knew I couldn't get to safety and so I let go...

Inspiration to live your best life
'There are few people you meet that truly glow but Tiffany is one of these. Her loving radiance is evident as soon as you arrive in a space near her, her laughter infectious and her courage is phenomenal. Yet, her greatest gift for clients, for readers, is her ability to see your spirit and be able to intuit what is around you for you to become more fully 'in spirit'. So much of this messy life obscures our truth from us and it is Tiffany's gift that she can reveal the wisdom that can clear our path for us to connect to centre. Finding myself in a messy and painful chapter, with all my flaws exposed, it was Tiffany's sharing of wisdom and her innate ability to guide which began my healing so that I could begin the return to my own intuition, my wisdom and truth.'
Tiffany is an inspiring soul. I remain in-gratitude that she so generously shares her healing power through deep communication and love.
'The Day I met Tiffany was the day that my outlook on life changed for the best. Tiffany has taught me how to feel safe, to trust my body is telling me and how to find peace and love in myself. Tiffany is one in a million with the most beautiful aura surrounding her. Being within her positive and peaceful presence is one of the most favourite times of my week. I cannot thank Tiffany enough for all the help and inspiration she has given me over the years.'
