Denial of Addiction and Resentment


I'm no stranger to resentment. I used to have so much resentment when my loved one would relapse and self-medicate with alcohol. When the demons of depression and anxiety took over, and he couldn't stop the impulse to drink, even when he didn't want to drink, I would get so angry. I would take it [...]

what makes a great teacher


My best teachers have been those who live what they teach, especially when it comes to skills that help you improve yourself, help you be a better person, help you grow, help you release stuff that no longer serves, and to learn skills you can use every day. To set energetic boundaries, to help live [...]

Reiki Share- Too Woo or What?


After over four years of leading 5 Element Women's Circles, I started co-leading monthly Reiki Circles (Reiki Shares) in March 2017. The power of meeting in a circle is amazing - each time, I see again how we are all connected to each other, to the earth, to the the cycles of the seasons. After any [...]

Surviving, Healing and Recovery in Love


Recently, I listened to an interview with Alain de Botton on the On Being podcast, he spoke about the true hard work of love and relationships.

My Shitty First Draft- My First Blog about Addiction and Codependency


ANNE LAMOTT: “Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people. It will keep you cramped and insane your whole life, and it is the main obstacle between you and a shitty first draft.” Here is my shitty first draft about why I am teaching the workshop, Set Boundaries with Compassion and [...]

Tools for the Empath: Reiki and Boundaries


How Can Learning Reiki with Energetic Boundaries Help the Empath? Reiki attunement opens us to our deep intuition and energetic awareness, which can be powerful. While usually positive, these shifts in awareness can feel unfamiliar or unsettling for some people, especially the empath, a person who is sensitive to other peoples' energy. When I teach [...]

Can anyone learn Reiki?


"I'm interested in taking a Reiki class, but I'm feeling a bit skeptical". If you’re someone who doesn’t have much experience with body work or doesn’t have a strong belief in energy work, the skeptical and data focused mind can make it seem as though Reiki is a questionable or unreliable practice. I find though, [...]
