If it's the same Helen Russ, Ph.D. that I found, she's about as New Age as you can get. An Australian with a background in environmental community development, she apparently conducts company appraisal programs work.
Her website gives a good description of the kind of work she does:
Collectively we have understood the importance of our relationships with people and organisational partners. However, organisations emerge in a particular ‘PLACE’ on Earth. The founder will live somewhere, he or she will dream up the idea for the organisation at a particular location that has a particular frequency or vibration, an ambient Land Energy. These energies affect what is possible for the organisation."She goes on to say that every place on earth has a social/cultural spirit or vibe which she calls the "overmind" or the "collective psyche of the human family at that place." Within that particular group is also an energy which she calls the lexion or "the psyche energy associated with the organisation or group."
She also believes in the awakening of the Third Eye, which is believed to be one of the seven chakras or energy centers in the body. Located in the center of the forehead, it is considered to be a mystical center that is believed in some religious traditions to be a kind of gateway to higher consciousness. The Third Eye is often associated with psychic powers such as clairvoyance, precognition and out-of-body experiences.
Russ combines all of these methods into a variety of corporate and individual retreats and workshops in order to help people "tackle the challenges of the next millennium" which she believes will require them to be "in touch with the inspiration and guiding light of their own spirit."
As you'll notice while perusing her website, there is no mention of God in any of her materials.
Why any Catholic publication would expose their readers to an ad for someone like this is beyond me.
