I am a Usui Reiki Practitioner/Teacher. I received my Master attunement and training (in a Western style) from William Lee Rand initially. I eventually found my way to the teachings of Frans and Bronwen Stiene, and their International House of Reiki, which is more traditional in nature, and have been practicing and teaching this way ever since. My world was transformed by embracing Reiki and its philosophies.
I had no idea what was in store for me when I sat in that first Level I class, but it didn’t even matter. The power of the system, and my dedication to bringing change into my life, ensured that the change would be a profound one!!! Nobody knows how to heal ourselves better than ourselves, and the way Reiki allows you to connect to yourself in order to do just that, is nothing short of incredible.
I am the mother of 3 amazing elementary-aged children, who keep me on my toes. Being able to share Reiki with my family has been an experience in itself. My youngest “baby”, Boomer, will probably greet you next time you visit…he loves the energy of our place! So much so that he sleeps on the couch… all... day...
I am originally from Australia, and have been here in the US for nearly 18 years. This is home now. I have a Bachelor of Business – Accounting, and spent the majority of my career in the business and taxation field. My heart though, was never in it, and I longed to leave that life behind, and truly engage myself in something that really made a difference in the lives of others. And boy, has Reiki done that, or what??? Sometimes, after people leave the center, after a class, or a session, or just a chat, I just sit there, surrounded by immense gratitude at my path having led me here.
My other passions include environmental issues – yes, I’m a tree hugger! I am also passionate about human rights, whether it is helping to bring an end to human trafficking, or making sure our local families have quality food on their table. I have been a vegetarian for 20 years, and I love to cook and serve fresh, whole, organic meals that make bellies sing! If there is a natural or organic option for anything that is used in my center, I use it. All bedding is washed in eco-friendly detergent, and no chemical cleaners are used. There is no point in bringing you in to help you heal, if I am going to poison you at the same time! I am interested in all types of holistic treatments, and truly believe that the body can heal itself, if only we will allow it.
The opening of The Reiki Room is just another step (or 3) along my journey of soul-searching, deep self-discovery and healing. Reiki was the catalyst for this change – it has restored my connection to my true spiritual nature, and has bought joy to my life in a way I never thought was possible. My anger, my worries of years past have been lifted. Reiki can do this for you, too. My journey is on-going – I invite you to join me! Here’s to being able to find your way to your own path, whatever that may be!!
