Hello Glorious Ones!


Archangel Zadkiel recently pointed out some things to share here.  


-It's the active experience of BEING PRESENT WITH EACH OTHER IN THE "CRADLE OF INTENTION" that creates the energy of change. Our interaction CLEARS and CHARGES our energy fields! 


-We lose a deep sense of community, and a deep sense of ourselves when our human touch level is absent. Depression and anxiety rates are up. Drug and alcohol use is up. Suicide cases are up. Physical abuse cases are up. WE NEED EACH INTERACTION WITH OTHER! 


ZOOM is valuable extremely for bringing us together. Gathering together LIVE is SO important and powerful, to be in the COLLECTIVE LIGHT. I recently attended a global ZOOM meditation with over 10K attendees! It was SO powerful to be in a huge field of humans holding an energy of intent. I didn't need to listen to the recording later. I just closed my eyes and remembered my experience to be back in it.

It's our active group energy/love most that powerfully carries our intention out into the world. It's important we are PRESENT with each other (remotely) REAL TIME, as much as we can. We create a POWERFUL energy vortex as a group.

We're ALMOST there! Soon we can resume workshops! If you took Level I and Level II Usui Reiki in the Fall/Winter of 2019, we'll pick up where we left off. Watch for notification in an upcoming Newsletter



​We offer readers and potential students the traditional history and roots of Reiki here to offer the context of why we teach it as a core part of the Energy Training that we offer. 

Reiki is a spiritually-based system of working with energy whose roots are well over 2,500 years old and embody the original traditional teachings of early Theravada and Mahayana Buddhism. It is the oldest known form of Reiki and the source of all other systems of Reiki, migrating from Tibet and India to Southeast Asia and China, then to Japan via Buddhist lamas and adepts.


Usui references the specific lineage of this form of Reiki, named for founder Dr. Mikao Usui, a Buddhist and Doctor of Theology who rediscovered this system from texts originating from Gautama Buddha, and began sharing it with his students as a complementary therapy to treat physical, emotional, and mental diseases. Sources report that Dr. Usui taught Reiki to over 2000 people during his lifetime, sixteen of whom continued their training to reach the equivalent to our Western third degree, or Master level.


Mrs. Hawayo Hiromi Takata, a Japanese-American born in Hawaii, helped introduce Reiki to the US. bringing it to Hawaii, where she taught until her death in 1980. It's not known how many students she taught, however, within the tradition, she is sometimes known as Reiki Grand Master Teacher Hawayo Takata. The American Reiki Association, Inc. was formed by Mrs. Takata in the final year of her life, 1980, together with Dr. Barbara Weber Ray, one of her students. 

Dr. Usui's original Reiki manuscript, found in 1994, cited the origins to be from Gautama Buddha and the Buddhist text, Tantra of the Lightning Flash. References have been made its origins being the way of healing practiced by Jesus. It is assumed, however, that Mrs. Takata created this reference to make Reiki more palatable and acceptable in the US.


​We are naturally connected to Life-enhancing energy - the Universal Life Force - the energy from which everything flows and is part of. In our modern world, our perception of this connection can become weaker as the busy-ness of our external world takes precedence as "reality." Reiki, which means Universal Life Force Energy in Japanese, is an amazing method/practice to learn to reconnect on a deeper level to the Love that is the source of all life, to navigate more gracefully the creativity and purpose of our life. Rather than being just for "hands on healing," this practice deepens our awareness of the animating part of everything in our world that is always available for our well-being, the "inner well" from which our creativity flows and in the many ways that shows up for us. 

We include Usui Reiki as a core offering because of its ancient, undiluted teachings as well as the rigorous attention to keeping intact the purity of this lineage's teaching and information. 

Connection to the spirit of life is one of life's many gifts for all of us. The deeper the connection, the easier life flows, enhancing everything positive that we already do for ourselves. For that reason, Reiki is shared from the perspectives of an artist, musician, writer and "healer" offering this class for all individuals, especially creatives. Everything is naturally connected to the Creative Life Force and so we share from a place of no boundaries or labels of any offering being "spiritual" or otherwise.

I hope you will join us in becoming part of this beautiful practice and lineage. 


All of Life flows from Universal Energy - the Feminine Creative Force that animates us and all living things. As creators and nurturers of this Feminine force, women hold the key to healing of our world.


This Level I introductory workshop teaches you how to consciously connect to, strengthen and work with this flow of Life Force in all areas of your life through the practice of Usui Reiki. An ancient form of Reiki, some claim it to be the original form of energy healing, has been passed down through a lineage originated in sacred texts written by the Buddha. (See first few paragraphs on this page for history).


A significant part of this class is the energetic attunement, which opens and strengthens all of your energy channels to a deeper awareness, clears and aligns your chakras, and thus enhances your own health, well-being, intuition, personal energy and inner guidance. This beginning Level I workshop has an energetic focus on self-healing, specifically healing the physical body, and can help you more easily manage stress, ease depression and pain, and help heal physical issues.


No previous experience, special knowledge or abilities are needed to learn this. Most of you will "remember" this practice on a cellular level. We will spend a lot of time working with this energy and how it can be used in many different life perspectives. This class includes the Level I energetic attunement, the traditional Reiki lore and teachings, learning the basic hand positions used for self healing, heightened awareness of energy in the body, practice time, study of the chakras, auric fields, and a beautiful Reiki Certificate suitable for framing. 


You will also receive the book, "Essential Reiki: A Complete Guide To An Ancient Healing Art," by Diane Stein. This manual goes deeply into Usui Reiki and is invaluable to those who wish to learn the basics as well as go further to higher levels in their study and for teaching. 


There is room in this workshop for 4 women.

My Reiki Journey: I have gratefully studied Usui Reiki and served as a Master/Teacher since Jan, 2002. The study of Usui Reiki was and continues to be my magnificent opening into alternative healing and medicine, and deeper spirituality. I have had so many incredible openings and healings since I began studying. And study of this modality is an ongoing, life-long journey. One thing I learned is that the more we let this energy "become" us, the deeper we go into the creative healing space and abilities of Source within us. When it "becomes" us, we embody healing energy for ourselves, others and Earth, just through who we are, just through intention. It becomes effortless. While I am studied and certified in many other healing modalities and practices, Usui Reiki remains my cornerstone and the most authentic energy healing modality I teach for individuals to begin their own energy healing journey and practice. I have taught this modality since 2003 and I will continue to teach it for the rest of my days.

This weekend workshop intensive immersion will take you into the Practitioner and Master/Teacher levels of Usui Reiki. These levels go much deeper into consciously and intentionally working with Reiki - Universal Life Force energy - in all facets of life. In each of these two days, students receive the attunements of greater awareness and flow of this energy, and the symbols that are appropriate for each level being studied. Much attention will be spent learning and working with these new symbols, practicing distance healing and practicing passing attunements. 



- Weekend Workshop will accommodate 4 individuals

Felted Healing Crystal Energy Balls - An Intuitive Art Class
This class will be offered through Local Cloth in Asheville in Fall 2021
Stay tuned!!
seed crystals.jpg
Raw balls1.jpg

Do you know someone needing prayers or good intentions who would love a physical healing representation filled with your love and energy? Or maybe you would like a new meditation tool?

This super fun and energy immersive class introduces you to the easy and wonderfully sensory art of felting, which uses wool fibers called roving, hot water, olive oil soap and friction or rubbing, to compact fibers into a shape, in this case a ball. And if you are new to energy healing, it also teaches you how to work with energy intentionally by "sending" it into your creation and imbuing your balls with it. Each ball will be felted around a powerful seed crystal point that has been cleared,  energized and is ready for your specific intention/prayer and energy. We will start with the basics of felting, then enter into a meditation to put us all "in the mood" and then we will felt away. 

You will have a choice of wool colors to use for your creations. You will also receive two organza gift bags for gifting your felted balls, plus extra wool and extra crystals so you can create a couple of felted balls at home. 

All supplies, snacks and tea provided. Six spots available in this class.
