Starr Sheppard-Decker Starr Sheppard-Decker is a teacher, Law of Attraction coach, musician, activist, spiritual leader, and founder of Radical Revelations. Her gift and passion is helping Spiritual Non-Conformists break down the inner walls that keep them stuck, small, and searching in a system that may or may not support their needs.
