Reiki Master Teacher, EFT Practitioner, Meditation
While living in Japan over 21 years ago, and during a prolonged period of constant change, multiple and major losses, and many other difficult challenges, I felt overwhelmed with grief and pain. Thankfully, I was led to the Japanese healing modality of reiki, where in the early days I found a new path of self-practice, cleansing, peace, and much needed healing. Reiki was life changing for me as I shifted from anxiety to wellness. Even today, as my practice continues to deepen, so does my understanding and appreciation of this beautiful energy, and its nourishing and positive outcomes; I am embraced by a continual and gentle process of discovery, self-care, spirituality, and the meaning of wholeness.
Since my Tokyo roots, I continue my reiki journey with U.S. and international reiki masters. Among my certifications are Reiki Master: The International Center for Reiki Training, and Practitioner: Sacred Childbirth with Reiki.
My commitment to volunteerism includes giving reiki to veterans, some of whom are homeless, and/or have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; to medical students at The Pritzker School of Medicine, University of Chicago; to local retirement communities; and at events for those who are interested in experiencing reiki firsthand.
Besides reiki, I thrive on other “wellness tools”. I have been practicing transcendental meditation since age 19, and have expanded my meditation ritual by creating guided/customized meditations. A decade ago, I learned Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). Using geometric patterns and hand selected crystal stones, I create customized healing grids, for individuals/situations.
I believe in: the power of the “wellness tools” of reiki, EFT and meditation, and other healthy life skills such as positive thought, kindness, love, eating well, and exercise to manifest wholeness; “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle; the magnificence of nature; and the practice of “Speak the Truth – Listen Deeply” (Gregory Kramer).
In both my private practice and in teaching, we focus on discovery, empowerment and transformation. Besides teaching “Reiki 1 Empowerment - You Are Your Healer”©, “Reiki 2 -Deepen Your Healing”©, “Reiki 3 and Master – Your Reiki Essence”©, Meditation, EFT and Healing Grids, I offer a 7 week workshop, “Tuning into your Chakras through Meditation, Art and Movement”©.
