What is a Reiki class? Is it for me? What are some tools I will learn? Please check out the descriptions of each class and read some of my blogs if you are new to Reiki, or even if you are familiar yet on the fence about taking it with me.
I taught my first Reiki 1 class in October 2014 to an amazing and powerful group of people in Baltimore. I learned Reiki and became a Reiki Master with my Reiki teacher, Bonnie Tarrantino as part of my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. I’ve been a teacher my whole career life and was a science teacher and environmental educator for 7 years. Teaching Reiki and holding a brave space for my class, bringing in the Reiki energy and attuning the class, was clearly my calling after the teaching my first Reiki class.
I taught a few more Reiki classes in Baltimore before I moved to Colorado in January 2015. I then took a year to give myself and my family time to settle into and be grounded in Colorado then again started teaching Reiki in 2016 at A Moms Space in Lafayette, where I also been studied and practiced intuitive healing. I have been teaching consistently since 2016, teaching my first Master Teacher class in June 2019.
In September 2019, I took a tranformational pilgrimage to Ireland with my Reiki teacher Bonnie and 8 women. During this pilgrimage, I learned Holy Fire Reiki on the top of Uisnich, a sacred hill in Ireland, where Beltaine is celebrated with fires. It was a powerful attunement and the entire pilgrimage was full of magic and Reiki . It is on this trip where I connected to my Celtic heritage and learned of Celtic Traditions and Celebrations. I was inspired to bring the celebrations of the Celtic Wheel of the Year, to Colorado and created Circling Together in the winter of 2019.
After moving to Colorado, I started studying with Stacia Synnestvedt of The Meditating Mama and Wooversity.com. I graduated from the year-long intuitive development and self-healing program in April 2017 and completed the year-long intuitive graduate program in April 2018. I have embraced and brought this work into my personal growth, my private Reiki sessions, and especially my Reiki classes. Bringing intuitive (psychic) work to my clients is valuable in supporting them in releasing energy they are ready to release. I infuse all of my Reiki classes with the valuable grounding and energetic boundary tools I have learned through these classes. My signature class, Set Boundaries with Compassion and Love brings these tools to relationships where boundaries need to be set.
Please look at my schedule for Reiki classes. Since the pandemic of 2020, I have started offering Reiki 1 classes on Zoom, and am keeping my in-person classes in Lafayette small to be able to keep social distancing.
I offer a monthly Reiki Share, the first Thursday of the month, usually in the classroom of my office, to share, practice, and receive Reiki in community. Since the pandemic I have moved the monthly Reiki shares to distance gatherings on Zoom. These are a powerful way to connect and practice Reiki, and stay in community, even on Zoom.
