About Us

Osalina Berman and Michael Cottrell are the co-founders of ABCpeace. Inaugurated 09/09/1999, the vision was and is to provide educational materials that facilitate personal and planetary healing and inspire peace on Earth. Osalina's training in vegetarian cooking, nutrition and herbology began in 1968 at a Montessori School at 15 years old. After this she was part of a theater troupe and performed, helped write scripts and designed her own costumes for 3 years and traveled through Mexico as well. Osalina spent two years in a wilderness Valley 13 miles from any roads living almost entirely off wild herbs, fruits, sprouts and gardens she grew. While living in this Valley she learned many of the uses of plants for everyday living and had a Course given to her by someone studying at the University of Hawaii on the Plants of Hawaii and how the ancients lived in the cave and house made from trees and plants she lived in.

Osalina also studied with Native American Shaman's and a Kahuna friend as well as numerous Doctors and Teachers who were some of the Leading figures in Holistic Health fields. She became a licensed massage therapist in Maui, Hawaii in 1979 and earned a degree as Master Herbalist in 1981 from the Emerson College of Herbology - See Link:  Emerson College of Herbology. She also served as a board member for the Maui Massage Therapy Association and as Vice President of the Hawaii Holistic Health Association. Through these organizations, she worked with Hawaii community college's, P.T.A.'s, and various senior citizen groups to promote holistic health.

During the 1980's and 90's she was very active in teaching and networking with other healers in the holistic health field and co-founded an alternative travel agency called Mystic Journeys. She networked numerous professional healers to provide transformational experiences for people vacationing in Hawaii. Osalina continues to increase her vast knowledge of herbology to the present day and is in the process of authoring a wide assortment of books.

There are now three books available on CreateSpace and Amazon.com - "The Alchemy of the 5 Elements - The Legend of the Beet Brothers" and " The Holistic Medicine Chart Book" "The Alchemy of Foods and Herbs" - Course 2: "The Legend of the Beet Brothers" Osalina is a mother of two beautiful daughters and maintains a private consulting practice for the development and delivery of creative forms of holistic education.

You may notice underlined links on each page. Some are ones I have obviously added and others are business from everywhere. Apparently business can now highjack peoples websites and add links to words related to their own business, even to my herbal poems. So just know that not all word links I would necessarily endorse. Like toxic cleaning, dental or body care products, or vitamins etc... Also use caution when going on these big business imposed links as they often trap you there and you can not get off the page without much effort and sometimes closing that browser entirely. Hover over them to see if they are my own links or one of these Big business web thievery. Ironically after posting this, I went back to my published site and all the sneaky links were gone, hopefully, that will last. I actually like providing links for people who I feel are contributing to the good of the planet, I just object to sharing my site with polluters.
