• Energy Therapy Techniques

    My office

    I've had a number of requests to teach some of the various energy techniques I use in my practice. This workshop is ideal for those who are wanting to learn more about energy therapy or for those who have already taken Reiki classes and don't care to re-learn Reiki again. In this class we will be discussing different sensory types and which one you might be. For example, you may feel things in your own body when around someone experiencing aches or digestive issues; or you may simple "know" things, but you can't explain how you know. Having clarity of your sensory type will help you to become a better energy practitioner. We will practice Donna Eden's revitalizing daily energy routine and discuss the Celtic weave pattern and polarity of the body. The effects of balancing and restoring the energies of the body in this way can result in: Stress reduction (calms nervous system) Lessens the feeling of being overwhelmed Improves your immune system and keeps other people's energy out! Helps you to feel more vibrant and energetic Improved ability to focus and concentrate Lifts exhaustion You will learn how to sense the edges of a person's aura, and reposition the aura into its correct place. I will illustrate some interesting facts about our chakra system and how it pertains to our health and healing. I always aim to provide lots of good information, detailed handouts, and practice time for participants. Whether you have experience with energy work or are new to it, you will find this class to be fun and educational! Cost of 2-hour workshop is $45 cash, check, or debit/credit cards are accepted.

  • Reiki Level 2; Advanced Energy Techniques

    My office

    (Please note: This TWO DAY workshop is for those who have already graduated Reiki Level One with me. It is BOTH Saturday and Sunday mornings, 9AM-12 noon). In Reiki Level 2, we discuss using the Reiki symbols, chakras 8-12, the meridian system, dowsing, incorporating crystals into a session, and energy cord cutting. I will also address removing entities and other unwanted debris and attachments from someone's aura. On the first day of class (Saturday September 28th, 9AM-12 noon) I will give the 2nd degree Reiki attunements so that the students' level of energy increases. We will discuss the sacred symbols used in Reiki treatments, as well as the Fire Serpent symbol and tapping into kundalini energy. Students will partner up and practice using the symbols as well as dowsing and scanning. Also there will be an overview of the meridians and chakras 8-12. These can be integral for releasing past trauma and blocks and locking in healing energy. Day 2 (Sunday, September29th, 9AM-12 noon) of class we will discuss the benefits of incorporating crystals into a healing treatment. Students will learn about harmful energetic cords (such as ancestral ties that no longer serve them) and how to detect and detach them. I will educate students about entities that may be attached to their clients and the protocol for addressing it. We will discuss curses and hexes as well. Another practice period for the students will be provided. It will focus on learning how to remove unwanted "debris" from a person's field and chakras, as well as learn how to seal a leak of energy. Workshop fee is $150, or $125 if $50 deposit of cash or check is received by Saturday, September 21st.

  • Calling All Empaths!!

    Pelham Road Library | F.W. Symmes Branch

    This meetup is a gathering for empaths or people who think they may be an empath. Not sure if you're an empath? Answer the following questions: Do you easily pick up on the mental and emotional state of another person without them saying a word? Do you sometimes take on others' feelings as if they were your own? Do you avoid crowds and loud places because they drain you or stress you out? Have you been told, "You're too sensitive!" by others? Do you generally need alone time to recharge? Do strangers often share their problems with you? Do you have a strong interest in spirituality or metaphysical studies? Do you tend to have a gentle, caring nature, often doing more for people or the planet than others typically would? Have you often been taken advantage of in the past? In other words, you're a giver and takers seemingly show up at your doorstep? Have you had at least one relationship or friendship with a narcissist? Do you sometimes feel others' physical issues in your own body? Do you seemingly know what animals and plants need to be happy? If you have answered yes to some or all of these questions, you are most likely an empath! Many people go through life never knowing they are an empath. So, during the FIRST HOUR of this meetup, I will help educate participants about the types of empaths (emotional, physical, mental, spiritual, natural, and shamanic.) You will answer questions that help you determine which one(s) you are. I will also include how an empath can CLEAR and PROTECT themselves from other people's energy. During the SECOND HOUR I will explain why empaths attract ENERGY VAMPIRES such as narcissists, controllers, victim types, and others into their life. I have had many personal experiences that I will share with the group to illustrate how you can avoid the headache, heartache, and pitfalls out there when you are highly sensitive. I will share valuable insights from psychiatrist (and empath!) Judith Orloff's book, The Empath's Survival Guide as well as Dr. Christiane Northrup's book, Dodging Energy Vampires. There will be room for discussion as well as questions as it's always more fun when the meetup is interactive! There is no charge for the meetup, but donations are welcome and there will be a donation box near the door of the meeting room. Thank you for helping me with the Meetup dues so I can keep hosting meetups for our community! :) {Please note: the library rules allow only bottled water to be brought in, no food or other beverages.}

  • Reiki Level 1; Learn Energy Therapy Basics

    My office

    This Usui Reiki workshop is a TWO-DAY class on BOTH Saturday and Sunday morning--9AM to 12 noon--June 15th AND 16th. Participants must attend class BOTH days to complete level 1 Reiki certification requirements. This workshop is great for beginners looking to LEARN MORE ABOUT ENERGY THERAPY. Learning Reiki 1 is a wonderful starting point even if you don't understand what energy balancing is all about, and have never worked with energy or chakras before. Every novice I've introduced to energy therapy has been able to feel energy! Specifically Reiki stands for Universal Life Energy and, as a Reiki master myself, I will attune participants to level 1 Reiki during this workshop. This will enable energy to flow more easily from the students' hands. By channeling Reiki energy, a practitioner can facilitate the body's natural ability to return to a balanced state and some report that it may alleviate physical symptoms. Those of you who know me know that I am a thorough teacher, and I don't care to just "pass students through" to the next level. In my Reiki workshops, I will make sure you understand what is being taught and my goal is that you will leave feeling confident at each level. Whether you intend to use the techniques and knowledge professionally on clients or just with family, friends, pets, and on yourself, I want you to be equipped with healer knowledge. To be a successful healer in any modality, you must be prepared for any situation and also for your healing abilities to grow and evolve. The first day of class we will discuss healer basics including self-care, importance of developing self-confidence and self-esteem, using your intuition, receiving spiritual messages and guidance, working with spirit guides, being a spiritual coach, boundaries, and more. I often feel other teachers do not adequately prepare their students for "the real world" of working on clients and only focus on showing you the techniques. Of course there will be lots of hands-on practice time as well on both days of the workshop! If you don't already know how to feel and "run" energy, you will be given the opportunity to experience this during class. In addition, you will learn the benefits of energy balancing, the basics of the energy systems (aura, chakras), how to use Reiki energy to facilitate healing on yourself, on animals, plants, and on people. Every student will receive a Reiki Healing for Beginners book which includes over 100 remedies for ailments such as depression, weight gain, menopausal issues, colds and flu, diabetes, aches and pains, and more! Even if you took Reiki classes in the past, I believe this would be a valuable workshop to help you get back into it if you have not been using Reiki for some time. Some participants may feel they did not receive a thorough education with previous teachers, or were left feeling unsure and confused as to how to feel energy. Please contact me by email [masked] or call[masked] if you have any questions about this workshop. TOTAL workshop fee for both days is $150. Note: Anyone who changes their RSVP to "not going" within 72 hours of class will be REQUIRED to pay a $50 deposit in advance of the next Reiki class they sign up for regardless of reason to not attend.

  • Reconstructing the Spirit, Part 2

    My office

    This is a 3-part workshop series that focuses on four key topics: *Know Yourself *Believe in Yourself *Heal Yourself *Forgive Yourself and Others {Anyone can join in at ANY time, even if you missed the first workshop} This workshop is about focusing on uncovering your TRUE self, rather than the false self that most people let guide their lives. In this class you join others who are also working on being their best self, and letting go of old attachments, beliefs, and blocks to abundance. When you shift, you open up channels to mental, emotional, and physical healing. As before, there will be a guided meditation. This one will allow participants to travel through time and space to PAST LIVES that are hindering their progress right now. You will be able to let go of these lifetimes that have caused cellular memory blocks for you right NOW! You also will have an opportunity to see why you have incarnated in this lifetime, and what are the primary issues to be worked on. YOU are the only person you can change in your life--you can't change others. But when you shift....others shift around you because the energy you put out will change. Bring your notebooks--there will be insightful questions that are to be answered about yourself and the journey you are on. You need only share thoughts and experiences that you want. In part 1, participants enjoyed sharing their trials and tribulations with one another, which can be deeply healing for all involved. Our souls are here to learn, experience, and transform that which is unhealthy into something that makes us stronger and wiser. If we do not work on shedding the old "skin," we never grow to live our best lives! The fee for this workshop is $35, cash or check please.
