why is reiki so popular…because you’re designed for it!







embodiment and expression

They say once you "open the door" to your spiritual awakening, your life will never be the same. That sounded interesting, although I could have never imagined how deeply Reiki was going to change me.

Over the years, I have studied various styles of Reiki, with seven different Reiki Master-Teachers. I am certified as Master Level in Usui/Tibetan Reiki and Karuna Reiki® through the International Center for Reiki Training.  I am also certified in levels Shoden and Okuden of Jikiden Reiki® through the Jikiden Reiki Institute and Shinpiden through the International House of Reiki. 

Reiki is NOT about mastering a technique; it’s about practicing self-mastery with love and compassion for yourself and all living things. In the process, may you remember and embody your TRUE nature.

Reiki Classes are held in San Diego, CA. To arrange training in your city, contact me for information.
