“I came to Reiki after discovering my son had been diagnosed with a rare bone disease and my step daughter was diagnosed with Lupus. I wanted to help them and was drawn to Reiki and, after reading a bit about it, I went to experience it first hand with a treatment. After my first experience I was floating, I had a wonderful feeling of peace within me and I wanted to be able to share this feeling with my son and step daughter.
I started taking lessons and became attuned first to Reiki I and then level II. After a number of years practicing Reiki on myself and others I took the step forward and studied to become a Reiki Master. Now I want to share what I have learned with others.
Unfortunately we lost my step daughter to the disease, but I continue to send distant healing to my son on a regular basis. I now treat others when they request it, and have started teaching Reiki to others in order to share my love of this practice. Reiki has many uses and applications in life, it was primarily taught as a method of self-development and healing, but it can be used for the greater good and healing of others and on plants and animals too. It is also a wonderful way to feel better, more peaceful and relaxed, but you will discover all this on the retreat. I also use Reiki in everyday life, using it to help me find parking spaces and lost keys!”
