Welcome“There is life force, a Divine spark, an energy that in some shape and design enables us to be here. We did not set the world and creation into motion. The force is beyond us, yet somehow in us. There is a higher order of things, a consciousness, a God that cannot be limited by our human definitions and struggles.”

In the past I have volunteered with Hospice London, Fusion Community Centre Ingersoll, and I continue to volunteer at the SARI Therapeutic Riding Centre. I have also worked with various animal rescue groups.
I practice and teach out of my home in Wortley Village London, Ontario where I reside happily with my husband Mark, my two amazing canine companions, Dexter, and Static, who work as therapy dogs and also greet clients as they arrive for their sessions, and one wonderful cat Rocky who expects a generous amount of cat treats from clients as they leave. (Treats are provided of course!)
What is Reiki?Reiki can be defined as Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy. Reiki promotes a deep state of relaxation in which healing takes place…physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
On a physical level Reiki works on the root causes of illness and disease as well as treating the symptoms. It facilitates the body’s innate ability to heal itself and return to its natural state of well-being. Reiki boosts the immune system, reduces pain and promotes physical healing following for example an injury or surgery. Reiki reduces stress and promotes relaxation. I have used it successfully in treating migraine headaches.
On a mental / emotional level, some of the benefits of Reiki include restoring peace clarity and balance, bringing about resolve in decision making and in dealing with life’s challenges, removing obstacles, relieving stress and anxiety, and renewing and affirming a sense of strength and courage when moving in new directions. On an emotional level I have also used Reiki with individuals struggling with grief and depression.
Spiritually, Reiki assists one in reconnecting to their Divine source, restoring the belief that we are all Divine beings and that all life is sacred.
Reiki is non-invasive and is always used for the Highest Good. And Reiki always works gently.
Reiki is experiential. As a practitioner and teacher, I invite you to come and experience a Reiki treatment for yourself. During a Reiki session you will rest comfortably seated in a chair or lying on a table with your eyes gently closed. I will rest my hands lightly on or above your body connecting to the Reiki Energy and allowing it to flow to whatever area in the body it is needed most. What one experiences during or following a Reiki session will vary. Each person experiences Reiki and its benefit in their own unique way. During a session, we are asked to remember that healing occurs according to Divine wisdom. We are encouraged to let go of how we see the outcome of the treatment, and to trust that whatever happens is for our Highest Good.

A transformative healing session combining the healing vibrations of the crystal singing bowls with those of the Reiki energy. As each bowl is played, areas in need of healing energy are identified. The bowls are played beginning at the Root Chakra and continuing through to include the Crown Chakra. This is an ascent through the chakras from those associated with the physical realm through those associated more closely with the spiritual realms. Once connected on a deep level to one’s Spiritual Self, one is more able to receive the healing that is being offered through the Reiki energy. After all the bowls have been played, Reiki is offered to those areas indicated by the bowls that are in need of healing energy. Following the Reiki, the bowls are played in the reverse order beginning at the Crown Chakra and ending at the Root Chakra. This seals in the healing received during the session from both the bowls and the Reiki while serving to ground one fully and completely in the physical.
Each session will last between 1 and 1 ½ hours. If you would like your Reiki session to include the crystal singing bowls, I ask that you let me know in advance so I can set up the bowls and prepare the space. Cost per session ~ $85.00.
Crystal Singing Bowls Healing Workshop: Group work can be and often is a very powerful experience! Gather a group of 5 or more and come for an amazing half-day Crystal Singing Bowl and Guided Meditation workshop. This workshop will include time for participants to experience the healing vibrations of the crystal singing bowls as we ascended through the 12 major chakras. Time will be provided for individuals to journal their experience. Cost: $55 each participant.
It is an honour and a JOY to bring Reiki to you through the various classes that I teach and I share in your excitement along each step of the way. All my classes are certified, and you will receive a certificate after each level of study you complete. If you have certificates from other Reiki Teachers know I will honour them. We then have the choice to either review the level(s) of study you have (audit) or continue with the level(s) following.
I presently teach and certify in two traditions of Reiki. The first is the Usui/Tibetan Tradition. A certificate in Levels I, II and/or III affords you with the opportunity to bring healing to yourself and others, possibly even opening a Reiki Practice of your own. (While you can indeed open a Practice after any one of these levels, I strongly recommend you wait until you complete all three.) Continuing your studies and upon completion of the Reiki Master Teacher level you are then able to teach the Usui/Tibetan Tradition of Reiki. (Even if you do not plan to teach…..I didn’t at first!.....the Reiki Master Teacher level both deepens your own personal relationship with Reiki as well as raises your energy vibrations. Reiki is always this lovely blend of Deepening and Expanding. It is in this way that we grow.
The second tradition that I teach is Karuna Reiki ®. In this tradition you learn to activate the Reiki healing through your voice. Sacred chant is used to bring healing and chanting can be done out loud or silently as you are guided. (You do not have to possess a “singing voice” in order to heal through sacred chant!) Karuna Reiki® Practitioner One and Karuna Reiki® Practitioner Two once again afford you with the opportunity to bring Karuna Reiki® healing to yourself and others. A certificate is given after the completion of each level. (Karuna Reiki® Practitioner Levels One and Two can also be combined into a single course). If you decide you want to teach Karuna Reiki®, you will be able to do so after completion of the Karuna Reiki® Master One and Karuna Reiki® Master Two levels and you will receive a certificate after each level. (Again these two levels can be combined into one course). For those that know right from the beginning that they would like to practice and teach Karuna Reiki®, both the Practitioner’s and the Master’s levels of Karuna Reiki® are taught as one course and one certificate is given upon completion. As you can see there are many ways to combine the various levels of Karuna Reiki®!
Note: in order to study Karuna Reiki® Practitioner One and Two, one must be certified in Levels I,II and III of the Usui/Tibetan Tradition. In order to study Karuna Reiki® Master One and Two, one must have their Reiki Master Teacher certificate in Usui/Tibetan Reiki.

Reiki For Your Animal
Reiki is extremely effective with our companion animals. They respond very quickly to this type of energy work, without egos to get in the way of the natural healing process. Reiki s a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on healing modality that brings healing on all levels….BODY ~ MIND ~ EMOTION ~ SPIRIT.
While Reiki cannot claim to either DIAGNOSE or CURE, it has been found to assist our four-leggeds with:
*trauma suffered by abuse or neglect
*issues arising for those who have been rescued or are victims of irresponsible breeding (ie: puppy mills)
*fear of thunder storms or fireworks
*issues arising as a result of a recent move, increased stresses within the family~ a new baby, a new four-legged family member, etc.
*stresses related to being kenneled (I travel to the kennel if requested)
*grief experienced as a result of the death of a family member or of their four-legged companion
*physical stresses from chronic dis-eases such as diabetes and arthritis
*pain reduction following an accident or surgery
*lessening the affects of anesthesia and possible reduction in the amount of pain medication needed after surgery
*physical and emotional support prior to and following a surgical procedure (I offer Reiki treatments at your Vet Clinic with permission from your Veterinarian)
*boosting their immune system
*easing painful stifle issues in horses
*a vital part of their total wellness package
Reiki can be there to help your companion animal cross over with dignity, comfort and peace at the time of euthanasia when it has been determined nothing else can be done or in the process of natural dying.
….and Reiki can help you with the grief experienced as a result of their passing.
(If requested, I will be there prior to, during and following euthanasia and will accompany you and / or your pet to the crematorium if desired.)
All Reiki treatments for animals are done in the comfort of their personal surroundings. Time is allowed prior to each session for me to “meet and greet” your pet and for them to become comfortable with me so they can settle more easily into their session.
Why not try Reiki for YOUR pet??
$48 / session or $120 / 3 sessions (sessions are 1-1/2 hours in length)
$45 Reiki session for large animals (ie: horses) ½ hour
$65 / session for large animals (ie: horses) or $170 / 3 sessions (sessions are 1-1/2 hours in length)

happened I couldn't find
in all my books
more than a picture and a few words concerning
the trout lily,
so I shut my eyes.
And let the darkness come in
and roll me back.
The old creek.
and the young girl I used to be
heard it also,
as she came swinging into the woods,
truant from everything as usual
except the clear globe of the day, and its
where the first trout lilies of the year
had sprung from the ground
with their spotted bodies
and their six-antlered bright faces,
and their many red tongues.
If she spoke to them, I don't remember what she said,
and if they kindly answered, it's a gift that can't be broken
by giving it away.
All I know is, there was a light that lingered, for hours,
under her eyelids--that made a difference
when she went back to a difficult house, at the end of the day.
AnthemThe birds they sang At the break of day
Start again I heard them say
Don't dwell on what Has passed away
Or what is yet to be. Ah the wars they will Be fought again The holy dove She will be caught again
Bought and sold And bought again
The dove is never free.
Ring the bells that still can
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.
One day you finally
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
their bad advice --
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
