Anthony Tedesco


As a young boy, Anthony Tedesco remembers growing up in a Catholic household having made his First Holy Communion and then year’s later sitting for his Confirmation. Shortly afterwards he became an altar boy and whole-heartedly wanted to become a priest. Anthony felt this connection to God but could not explain some things. As Anthony grew older he had many, many questions. The one that ran through his head the most was why there were so many religions. He could not understand the concepts behind all of them knowing instinctively that they were all praying to the same God. He knew then that there was only one God. But this knowledge began to be questioned on several occasions. The problem was, neither Anthony, nor anyone else had any answers.


The older Anthony grew, the more upset he became with God, for many reasons. He struggled with his family life and circumstances. He struggled with himself trying to figure himself out, asking why this and why that. Discovering whom he was rather than what society wanted or expected him to be was a huge undertaking. Throughout this process, Anthony grew more and more frustrated with many religious views.


Anthony would eventually be taken in by the fire department and from there a career was formed and ultimately earned. Today, Anthony is proud to be a full-time Firefighter/Paramedic for the City of Clearwater. He holds the rank of Lieutenant Rescue and is also a Registered Nurse. Anthony holds a Bachelors degree in Nursing.


A teacher at heart, Anthony also made a career out of teaching. This is where his Spirit truly shines. Anthony has had the privilege to teach for St. Petersburg College within the Paramedic Program teaching all aspects of the paramedic curriculum. Although semi-retired from teaching, he still does pick up some classes for the continuing medical education program, on the non-credit side of St. Petersburg College.


The interesting thing here is that although Anthony endeavored on this difficult struggle with God at a very young age, it was God who always made sure Anthony was okay. This was never more true than in March of 2011 as this was three months after he followed his intuition to retire from the college.


An offer for an opportunity came his way to travel to Cassadega, Florida. Anthony accepted and thank God he did! You see, this is where he met a very interesting Scottish woman name Anne-Marie. It was her reading that changed his life forever. It was within this meeting that his gifts and abilities were confirmed and others were revealed. From that point on, Anthony Tedesco has embarked on a Spiritual Journey that has awakened his mind to the Universe and opened his heart to God. It has also taken him across the pond several times to study.


Anthony has had the privilege to travel multiple times to Stansted England to attend several classes at the esteemed Arthur Findlay College. He has also traveled to New Jersey to attend classes at The Journey Within. In September of 2013, both Anthony and Leo flew to Washington DC to attend the Hay House “I Can Do It” conference. While there, Anthony Tedesco became certified as an Angel Card Reader through Doreen Virtue’s Angel Card reader certification class which was taught by Doreen Virtue herself.


Anthony Tedesco keeps his skill level current by attending development classes across the Tampa Bay area, continuing to attend classes at the esteemed Arthur Findlay College, attending enlightening and thought-provoking conferences and performing private readings as often as he can.

Leonardo Torres


Leonardo Torres was born in São Paulo/SP - Brazil, and holds a Bachelors Degree in Product Design. Leo is fluent in his native language of Portuguese as well as Spanish and English.


Leo grew up in a multi-religious family who was always opened minded and willing to experience new insights. At a young age, Leo became aware of the fact that he could see Spirit when his grandma came to him one night. This visit, however, frightened Leo to the point that he shut himself down for many years. This did not stop Spirit though and after a chance meeting at a Body, Mind, Spirit conference with Anthony, Leo’s abilities started to break through.


Soon, Leo was at his first psychic development/awareness class. There, at his first session, Leo Torres had one of the most amazing experiences of his life! You see, the one person who frightened him years ago was the first person to shine through not one but two mediums who were doing a double link. Leo’s grandmother had come through and in a big way. It was through this experience, which helped confirm to Leo his amazing abilities.


Since then, Leo has frequented different development groups and attended different spiritual classes. He recently attended the highly acclaimed "I Can Do It!" conference in Washington DC. This conference, put on by Hay House, helped Leo understand even more concepts.


Having emigrated from Brazil, Leo not only speaks English but also is fluent in Portuguese and Spanish. This makes him very sought after within these communities. As such, Leo is a tremendously gifted psychic medium. He has an uncanny ability to communicate with the non-living and provide accurate and moving messages.


Leonardo Torres, for sure, is on a beautiful journey of self-discovery and Spiritual Awakening. To Leo, every day is a new day, new experience and new life lesson.
