graduated from the Minneapolis School of Massage and Bodywork Inc. in 1998 as a certified massage therapist. I was a faculty
member and instructor of massage therapy at two schools in the Twin Cities for over 10 years. I have been teaching
Reiki workshops since 2005. To deepen my healing work, I became a Certified Hypnotherapist in March 2006.
I started my Reiki journey in February 2003 and completed my Usui Reiki Master certification
in December 2004. I have also received additional training in Crystal Therapy, Rainbow, Shamballa, and completed my Karuna
Reiki Master training in 2008.
In 2004, I received training in several forms of emotional release therapy. Through these therapies,
I discovered my life's purpose as being able to assist others to heal themselves by helping them to reconnect with ancient
universal energy that surrounds us and that which is within us. They can help to heal current as well as ancient issues.
In September of 2004, I traveled to Glastonbury, England, for a Level I and II Reiki training which added additional
Japanese techniques and rituals to my work. I received my attunement within Stonehenge. This was an event I'll never forget!
I named my Reiki business "Stone Circle Reiki" from my experience at Stonehenge. I then traveled through Scotland
for nine days and sent Reiki healing to many sites throughout Scotland.
In September 2005, I traveled to Paris,
France, and completed a second Master certification with the International Center for Reiki Training, adding additional Tibetan
techniques to those learned the previous year. I then returned to England and Scotland on a women's healing pilgrimage, visiting
many ancient sacred sites for healing and transformation for all our planet.
In September 2014, I returned to Scotland and began training in
Level 1 and 2 Celtic Reiki. Celtic Reiki allows us to become attuned with the essences of nature, particularly, the essences
of Mother Earth's sacred trees. My Reiki sisters and I were also able to meditate and pass attunements to each other within
the Calanais Stone Circles on the Ise of Lewis.
December 2016, I hosted a visit from my Celtic Reiki Master, Jude Murray, here in Minnesota. I finished my Celtic Reiki Master
certification with Jude and was able to co-teach a Celtic Reiki Level I and II workshop while she was here.
In 2017, I completed Level I and Level
II Gendai Reiki on Black Mountain in North Carolina, and Level III in Minneapolis in February 2018. I received my Gendai Reiki
Shihan (master level) in June 2018. Gendai Reiki brings us full circle back to the original teachings of Dr. Usui still practiced
by the Reiki Gakkai in Japan.
My intent is to continue teaching Usui Reiki, Karuna Reiki, and (coming soon) Celtic Reiki in the U.S. I also envision
teaching Reiki in England and Scotland in the near future. I hope you enjoy your journey as much as I have!
Peace and love,
