Reiki is an energy work modality which helps the body to relax and rejuvenate through restoration of the body's natural energetic balance and flow. Reiki is universally compatible with exercise plans such as Yoga, Meditation, Pilates, TRX, and various other forms of exercise. There is no spiritual or esoteric requirement to receive Reiki from a trained professional, and it doesn't not involve conversion to a new set of beliefs, empowerments, attunements, or initiation. I received my training as Reiki practitioner in 2004, at which time I was trained in the Usui lineage of Reiki under the instruction of Dr. Sharon Kanter. I am a level III practitioner, with teaching privileges.
Mindfulness meditation is a form of meditation that focuses on cultivating a state of mindfulness through the breath, and silence. Mindfulness meditation is used worldwide for reasons such as calming the mind, increasing happiness, learning to listen rather than speak, prevention of relapse of depression and anxiety states, pain management, and basic cultivation of awareness of one's connection to the world we live in. Mindfulness meditation is used in hospital pain management clinics to help people cope with pain related to chronic illness, trauma, and Depressive states. Mindfulness meditation is also used in some psychiatric settings to help patients cope with the symptoms of mental illness, or what we now refer to as spiritual emergence.
I became interested in mindfulness while I was working with a therapist while receiving psychological treatment as a teen. His work prompted me to seek more understanding in how mindfulness creates stability and awareness in the mind and how that awareness works to stabilize the health via various pathways of the mind-body connection.
Consequently, I embarked on a journey to understand meditation and consciousness, which led to a 20+ year journey of meditation instruction communicated in temples, monasteries, sanctuaries, and academic institutions.
Mindfulness meditation is a method of basic awareness cultivation which anyone with a breath and a body and a brain can utilize to their advantage. There are no spiritual initiation or esoteric requirement to engage in the practice of mindfulness meditation, just a willingness to engage in the practice and to benefit from its effect on your mind-body continuum. I teach individuals or groups of any size.
