Personal Introduction

My journey began when a friend’s mother returned home one afternoon and began to tell me about a Reiki session she had just been for. I was in awe. I was so enthralled with what the woman was saying that I imagine I stood there with open mouth. I was 16. I knew right then and there that had to learn more about Reiki Healing. So after a few failed attempts at some computer programming courses (when I think of it now I laugh) I discovered a course that would teach me this mysterious Reiki healing. That was in 1999.

I gravitated to ethereal philosophies and psychology, to discover a profundity to life’s meaning,a journey I now recognize will keep me pondering until I’m old and wrinkly. Growing up the weird and whacky fascinated me and I found myself seeking to understand more about this un-conveyed world, an world invisible, a world concealed. The eccentric to many may be natural to the few and this certainly is my experience. I have encountered an abundance of mystical occurrences and events which directed me towards esoteric knowledge.

With this ethereal impetus I began studying in the field of body work and subtle energy in 1999. I felt internally drawn to study Reiki, Rahanni, Integrated Energy Therapy, Access Consciousness, Neuromuscular Physical Therapy, Orthopaedic Sports Massage, Reflexology and became a licensed Therapist. Over time I moved away from the more physical related therapies and gravitated towards psychology, neuroscience, epigenetics and quantum physics as areas of interest.

Healing is an individual, personal and gradual path of awareness, and I have learned with time that each person must find it by themselves. Experience has demonstrated to me that healing is achieved by our own inner will and introspection. Anything else, be it a technique or a person,is merely temporary external assistance and guidance, which is at times necessary and beneficial, but will not complete the work. Needless to say I thoroughly respect each person’s free will to choose for themselves the graduation to healing and my role is to simply facilitate this journey.

The continued appreciation through personal recommendations of clients and students have emboldened my continued enthusiasm for what I do. The healing that I have witnessed perpetuates my focus and creates an unquenchable desire to help people develop and grow.

I spend much time in nature and meditation and this allows time for introspection and contemplation which in turns amplifies and progresses the facilitation I can offer to my students and clients.
