Spiritual or Energetic? The Power of Language

2018-12-07T15:32:12+00:00

I have recently committed myself to talking more about and teaching more about the effects of addiction- I see it as an epidemic of our culture and I have experienced its effects, and learned to handle it better from an energetic perspective. I am teaching a class, An Energetic Perspective on Addiction- a one- day [...]

When your teacher lives and loves what they teach

2018-12-07T15:45:11+00:00

My best teachers have been those who live what they teach, especially when it comes to skills that help you improve yourself, help you be a better person, help you grow, help you release stuff that no longer serves, and to learn skills you can use every day. To set energetic boundaries, to help live [...]

The Magic of Reiki in the Fall

2018-12-07T15:20:15+00:00

The Fall is my favorite time to teach Reiki classes- I teach them throughout the year, but there is something quite magical about introducing Reiki to my students in the fall, and this year Reiki 1 is "falling" on the weekend of the fall equinox. If you are on the fence to sign up or [...]

Reiki Share- Too Woo or What?

2018-12-08T06:00:39+00:00

After over four years of leading 5 Element Women's Circles, I started co-leading monthly Reiki Circles (Reiki Shares) in March 2017. The power of meeting in a circle is amazing - each time, I see again how we are all connected to each other, to the earth, to the the cycles of the seasons. After any [...]

Dancing with Anxiety: Medicinal Mushrooms and Creating Ease

2018-12-07T15:24:57+00:00

I dance with anxiety as part of my life. I would have once said that I struggle with it, now I say that I understand my anxiety and have a giant toolbox to help dance with my anxiety.  I think I have all my life, though I didn’t recognize it as that until I was [...]

Detachment: My Ticket to Serenity

2018-12-07T19:30:47+00:00

I’m rushing out of the parking lot of Whole Foods, I get to the parking ticket booth and I realize I don’t have my parking ticket. I feel tension in my shoulders as I scramble looking for the ticket. My breathing gets tight and I start to explain to the parking attendant that I dropped [...]

Is Reiki For Me?

2018-12-07T15:33:33+00:00

"I'm interested in taking a Reiki class, but I'm not quite sure what it is or if it is for me". If you’re someone who doesn’t have much experience with body work or doesn’t have a strong belief in energy work, the skeptical and data focused mind can make it seem as though Reiki is [...]

Reiki: Simple Tools for Transformation

2018-12-07T15:55:02+00:00

I came to Reiki after getting acupuncture for years and studying Chinese Five Elements in graduate school. I set an intention to learn an energy healing tool and didn't feel ready to or interested in going to acupuncture school. So, I started looking into yoga teacher trainings and I found one that included Reiki attunement [...]
