Ellen Zuby and Debbie Pietruszka, good friends for almost twenty years, are THE SETTING SUN SAGES. When seeking a name for themselves, they decided this name described them perfectly because they have many decades of life experience and wisdom. They also feel the name is a perfect match for both of them at the very core of who they are and what they believe.

In First Nation teachings, Setting Sun Women are keepers of the dreams and goals of tomorrow. They focus primarily on accessing our inner wisdom in order to live our Truth. They recognize that they as “elders” are granted a unique and special opportunity to help people living currently as well as guardians for the next seven generations.

Ellen and Debbie present classes and workshops to promote self development and empowerment. Not only are their events educational and informative, they are also fun and inspiring.


Ellen Zuby has always been interested in the way people’s minds work. A student of psychology and related subjects, she is continually learning and increasing her knowledge with classes and study. Tarot and other divination tools, astrology, and using our psychic abilities are part of the teaching she shares. She welcomes questions about anything and everything, but is not really good with math. After spending 30 years as an educator and mentor in the public school system, she is currently “retired,” living in the middle of the woods with her husband and cats and over 1000 books, most of which she has read.

She has a small business, a popup boutique, “elen and tuka” in which she combines her love of fabric, color, and uniqueness in a curated collection of women’s accessories and clothing.
