Aloha, and welcome! E Komo Mai!
From a lifetime of spiritual exploration, world travel, and working in the Healing Arts, I eventually discovered my true calling as a teacher of Reiki. I've been a lifelong teacher and coach of other skills, but teaching Reiki is truly my purpose and passion in this life. All of my past experiences have molded me into the teacher and mentor I wished I’d had many years ago, and I'm very happy to be able to share with my students the essence of my accumulated knowledge and wisdom so they don't have to spend decades of searching and learning like I did.
Life is an interesting evolution of one thing leading into another that takes us in unexpected directions. As a surfer from the Big Island of Hawaii, I never could have guessed that my fitness background would lead me to becoming a massage therapist, which would then lead me to Reiki and becoming a Reiki Master Practitioner, and then an ICRT Licensed Reiki Master Teacher. Nor did I ever imagine that I'd end up traveling to different parts of the US and other countries, teaching Reiki to others!
I love teaching Reiki and bring to my classes a combination of excellent training, real life experience, hard earned wisdom, Love, Compassion, Humor, and Grace. Because of my background, my classes are taught in a relaxed “Hawaiian style”. But in spite of the relaxed style, my students leave their trainings feeling confident with their new skills, empowered and excited, ready to go out into the world to share their knowledge. After completing their classes, I continue to offer support for their well-being and success in whatever way they choose to use Reiki, whether professionally or for home use.
All my classes are infused with the warmth and sacredness of the Aloha Spirit, regardless where they are being taught. A-lo-ha literally means “the breath of God”. It’s similar to the word Namaste in that it is a recognition of the sacred Divinity within another, and I honor and recognize this light within every living being.
I've been practicing Reiki for close to 30 years and am very grateful to be of service in this way. It’s truly a joy, an honor, and a tremendous blessing to live a Reiki life and help others learn these lifelong skills they can use to heal themselves, their loved ones, and in turn..... the world.
