Natural Awakenings Central Florida / Orlando

In Loving Memory of Diana Ewald

There is no doubt—Heaven has received a very special angel. With a heavy heart, we announce  the peaceful passing of Diana Ewald (1958-2021) at her Winter Park home on Sunday, March 14, 2021. Many of you know Diana from her Pillars of Light Wellness Center founded in 2001. Most recently, she developed our beautiful Natural Awakenings website (, and she often helped distribute magazines throughout Central Florida. Always a beacon of light, Diana is truly missed here.

After many years as the Assistant Executive Director of Disney Cruise Lines, she later found that she was most fascinated by the function and healing powers of the human body. This led her to attend the Florida College of Natural Health and graduate in 1998. Specializing in modalities that focused on the energy system as well as the emotional body, her mission was always to help others, animals included. She was also a CranialSacral Therapist, Reiki Master and a passionate independent distributor of Young Living Essential Oils.

Additionally, Diana was a strong advocate for animals, nature and Mother Earth. For those who  wish to honor her, a donation to either the Nature Conservancy ( or to Pets By Judy (a local animal rescue, would bring joy to her heart and help make a difference in this world.

Her family is grateful to Advent Health Hospice and Griswold Home Health Care for their wonderful services. They also give special thanks to a close friend and neighbor, Linda
Vance. Her natural gift of selflessly caring for and loving others helped ensure Diana’s
smooth transition
