I am honored to have the opportunity to introduce myself to you. I have walked on this precious earth this time around for almost 62 years. I feel blessed to have had the experiences of joy, pain, wisdom, growth, endings and beginnings, for these have made me part of each of you as we travel these places separately and together.
The seer, empathic and healer in me was revealed at a very young age through encounters with those who lived in suffering. On a conscious level, I was not always aware of my part in their transformation. However, as the years past, I was told, through others wisdom, my purpose was to walk the path of healer, guide and teacher.
In my early 20's I was blessed to meet my 1st spiritual teacher, Swami Muktananda. He showed me the way to opening my heart and the medicine of miracles. After seven years, I was sent to study with Native American and Tibetan teachers: Ven Dhyani Ywahoo, and other Native Elders, Khenchen Gaylten Rinpoche, Khenpo Tsawang, and H. E. Garchen Rinpoche. These precious teachers helped reveal an understanding of what it means to live in compassion and wisdom.
As my true nature began to unfold, the skills of teaching, healing and seeing became fine tuned. I had the opportunity to study further with Master healers and seers and received training as a licensed interfaith minister with credentials to Minister in all 50 states.
I have been a Massage/Energy Medicine Practitioner for 35 years and a long time professional member of Associated Bodyworkers and Massage Professionals. In 1993 I founded the Reiki Educational Institute, offering classes, sessions and free clinics in this Eastern tradition of healing.
I have actively worked with the elderly, as a caregiver, advocate and activity director, teaching drum, poetry and songwriting. Through my years of work with the elderly, I was a recipient of the Governor's Healthy Aging Award.
With a love and passion to be of service, I have sat on several boards, including the Five Town Health Alliance, who's mission has been to provide services for those in need. Our recent success has been developing and overseeing a health clinic that will provide health care, dental care, mental health and prescriptions at a sliding fee scale.
In offering my services to you, my commitment is to walk this earth gently, humble and with integrity. I step before you with an open heart, hoping to be of great service to you and your loved ones. My prayer is that I always remember the sacred ways that bring only goodness and love to any situation.
