Let’s take a walk

I’m excited to invite you to take a walk around my website.  I’ve been working on it all summer to refresh the content so it is current and relevant.  Is this You?

If your desire is to increase your own well-being, awareness and understanding of the subtle energy that affects you and your family, exploring Reiki is for you. You can receive guidance and explore personal growth through Nourish your Heart & Soul and Reiki 1 Certification.

If you are looking for a place to express your compassion and desire to help others,  explore a career as a Reiki professional – the Reiki Certification programs are for you.

If you are exploring how to turn your compassion and holistic healing practice into a heart-centered business, look at Starting your Heart-Centered Business and explore the various learn-at-home, classes and coaching programs there.  If your practice has already been established, and you need inspiration, motivation, encouragement, solutions and strategies, look at Grow your Heart-Centered Business and explore the group and coaching options there.

A new section I am really excited about is Ongoing Education for Reiki Practitioners, where you can stay up to date on all kinds of continuing education opportunities with me and other teachers or classes I recommend, like Meditation 101 with Jill Alexander starting next week.

Another exciting development is a student Reiki clinic that will be starting this September to provide affordable Reiki sessions to people in need. I will be recruiting for student volunteers looking for more experience in a couple of weeks.  Stay tuned for a shout out about that!

Also for those of you, like me, who love to plan ahead – the first session of fall Reiki Certifications start on September 8th.  There will be Reiki 1Reiki 2 and Reiki Master programs starting at that time.

In the meantime, let’s enjoy the last week of August and the end of summer!  I am offering the final Reiki Refresher workshop – Emotional Healing with Reiki – this upcomingSunday August 25th at 1pm, and there are still a few seats left in the Creative Retreat next Monday, August 26th.  If you need inspiration and/or strategy for growing your Reiki practice or other Heart-Centered business this Fall, this retreat is for you.

Have a wonderful week!

Warmly,
Joanna

Fall 2013 Reiki Certification Classes

Give yourself the gift of Reiki – you will thank yourself many times over! Reiki is a gentle type of bodywork that aids emotional harmony, encourages relaxation and stimulates the body’s natural healing processes. Yet, it is a powerful technique that can be used alone or integrated seamlessly with other wellness practices such as Massage Therapy, Polarity, Reflexology, Shiatsu or Yoga. The first level of Reiki training provides you with an empowering technique for self-care and improving personal well-being. Reiki Certification training provides all the skills needed to direct healing energy to yourself and others. Reiki is taught in four levels and each level builds upon the previous one.

Who will benefit from this?

Joanna specializes in training wellness professionals looking to add Reiki to their repertoire, as well as people who wish to become professional Reiki practitioners. Joanna also works with people who are passionate about mind-body-spirit balance, personal growth, and those who have a burning desire to help others find healing.

When meditation doesn’t feel like it’s working

This last week or so has been difficult for me. At times throughout my life, I have struggled with bouts of insomnia and this week was one of them. In recent months, I’d only have a night here or there were I wouldn’t sleep well, but it’s been more than week now of being awake most nights in the middle of the night. After a few nights of sleeplessness, if you’ve ever had insomnia, you know that things start to get difficult. You feel out of it, cranky, have a hard time focusing, meditating and doing all the things that are good for you. You also have a hard time handling surprises, changes and challenges.

Everything starts to take on an edge of being extra stressful because it is so hard to function during the day when you are not sleeping well at night. I have so much compassion for parents who sometimes go long periods without good sleep. The whole situation starts to compound in a downward spiral of stress and frustration.

Even so, I have been meditating and grounding quite a bit, and still I am unable to fall asleep or stay asleep at night. Sometimes it’s incredibly frustrating when you don’t see or feel the beneficial effects of good habits like that. I am still getting exercise daily to help release the agitation that builds up from not sleeping, but the nice feelings from that don’t last long either. I know, from previous experience, that hanging in there and keeping at it will help this transition period settle down and balance out sooner. This is when faith and discipline kick in to help me get to the other side of the rough patch.

I’m sharing this because I want you to know that even though I’ve had a daily meditation practice for more than 15 years, it’s not all peaches and cream. Sometimes life is hard around you, and sometimes it’s your inner world that’s challenging.

When life is challenging is exactly when meditation and healthy habits are most necessary because they help you get to the other side of the challenge more easily, even if it doesn’t feel like it in the moment.

As this past week unfolded, I found I was just unable to keep up the pace I normally keep with working full time, graduate school, seeing friends and family and plenty of daily exercise and spiritual activity. It finally occurred to me that maybe my body was telling me to slow down, so I surrendered and took yesterday off to rest and relax. I did notice layers of stress start to melt away and a deeper peace emerge.

One day wasn’t enough though, and my body is telling me I need more down time to wind down to a pace that will work better for me. Perhaps my body is aligning with the cooler, fall like weather we are having lately. In any case, I’m doing the best I can to clear away the static in my mind with meditation, exercise and grounding, so I can hear what my body and spirit are telling me about what I need right now.

What do you do when times get rough? Do you stick with your meditation practice or do you give up on it?

And for professional practitioners and heart centered entrepreneurs, my Creative Retreat is coming up at the end of the month for you to take time out of the day-to-day to bring some clarity on where you need to go with your business for the rest of the year. See below for details. Reiki certification classes will start in September, and I’ll be sharing the schedule with you next week.

In the morning, we will access our higher selves to receive clarity of vision on our paths for the fall and the rest of the year.  Then, in the afternoon,  we will ground our ideas into manifestation through brainstorming and strategic planning.  You will leave this retreat refreshed, refocused and ready to reap in the Fall season.

Space is very limited – there are only six spots open. Find out more about the Retreat on my website here.

Oops I overdid it again

As Mercury Retrograde transitioned back to normal, I completed my WAY OVERDUE list that I mentioned to you in my previous newsletter. If you missed it, you can read about it here.

It’s possible that I overdid things in my push to achieve my goal, as my body rebelled shortly after I crumpled up the completed list and threw it out.   Last week I was in bed with what felt like a summer flu – headache, fever, chills, exhaustion.  It came out of nowhere Sunday evening, and I couldn’t get out of bed for two whole days.

If you know me, you know that staying still for that long and doing absolutely nothing is not easy for me.  But my body wanted rest, and so I listened.  How good are you at listening to your body when it tells you what it needs?

Lucky for me, many of the Reiki people in my community had compassion and sent me healing energy, so I was back on my feet by Thursday.  I am much better this week and back to my summer way of burning the candle at both ends.

I adore getting up early, not too long after the sunrise, to walk near my beloved ocean and do yoga and/or meditate on the beach.  It’s just too nice out to stay home and sleep in!

It’s been a busy summer! I’ve been teaching many Reiki classes this summer, and at the same time learning and furthering my own skills in business at Endicott College and in working with energy with Jill Alexander at The Healing Center.

More Reiki Refreshers in August & Creative Retreat
In fact, the Reiki Refresher workshops in July were a hit, and many of you requested more! So I’ve come up with a schedule of Reiki Refreshers for the month of August!  In meditating on it, I saw that it feels right to spend the rest of the summer reviewing and deepening skills.  Meanwhile, in addition to the Refreshers, I’ve got another exciting event going on in August.  Once or twice each year, I facilitate a Creative Retreat for Reiki and other Holistic Professionals (aka Heart Centered Entrepreneurs ).   The next one will be Monday, August 26th from 9am-4pm at The Healing Center.  Find out more about the Retreat on my website here.

I’m saving the next set of Reiki Certification classes for back to school season.  There will be Sunday Reiki 1, 2 and Master programs running, as well as a special midday Tuesday Fall Reiki Master program for moms, retirees and career changers. I’ll be posting the upcoming schedule of classes in the next week or two.

Don’t forget to scroll down to see the schedule for circles, open houses and August events.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful, healthy week!

What else is unfinished?

We are in the home stretch of Mercury retrograde. It goes direct on Saturday (July 20th), although we will still feel it’s effects for another week or so afterwards.

As I mentioned last week, I am taking advantage of the energy of this happening to clear away items on my WAY OVERDUE list. I’m tackling the really difficult things, some of which have been left undone for years because it seems easier to avoid the emotionally charged tasks than actually facing them.

A lot of them are related to my divorce 5 years ago this month or the difficult time period following it when I got behind on everything. In fact, I’ve been on this journey to clear up the WAY OVERDUE list since December, and I am super close to the finish line with this Mercury retrograde.

Each time I pull out the to-do list, I take a deep breath, stop thinking and just pick up the phone to handle each task. Thank you Jennifer Carey for that tip! The first time was hardest, and then it started to get easier with each call, even if the topic was extra emotionally charged. Every task brought me a piece of closure and brought more of my energy back into the present moment. Each thing I cross off the list is correlated with an increase in joy and lightness.

With each step, the momentum picks up and I’m ready to see this list through to the end. It’s starting to feel really good inside my heart instead of the dread and ickiness that I used to feel about facing these things.

The joy and lightness this work has generated has been palpable.  More than one person this week has asked me what’s different – is it new hairstyle or clothes or colors or ??? And I tell them that this joyfulness is agreeing with me.

What in your life has been avoided and is undone and weighing on you? I encourage you to take a deep breath, don’t think about it and just do it. The difference you will feel is worth so much more than the initial ick and anxiety that kicks up.  Join me these final days of Mercury retrograde in asking myself what else is unfinished? And then finishing it. Give yourself the gift of closure and relief.

If you’re feeling really stuck, raw or heavy, I can help you reconnect with your center, your courage and your motivation with a Reiki session. Let’s get you back to a place where you feel at ease with your body and your process. I’m offering these 75 minute sessions for $70, or 45 minutes for $45 but if you are a Reiki or energy healing student or practitioner of any level or practice, there is a special price for you.  Just let me know when you schedule your appointment, so you can get the energy worker rate.  Call 978-338-4326 or email meto schedule an appointment.  Find out more on my website here.

Hot enough for ya?

Hot enough for ya? *giggle* I love how people say that in New England in the summer!

I hope you are having a fun and relaxing summer, even if you are super busy. It seems like everything ramps up during the summer. Suddenly, my schedule is full, full, full!

I am getting up early to walk the beach before it gets too hot and humid, refreshing in the AC at work, and then staying out late teaching or taking classes, connecting with people I don’t see enough during the rest of the year, or just being out among people.   One of my favorite things to do lately is to take a good novel to a coffee shop after dinner to read and chat with the people I bump into while I’m there.

Right now the planet Mercury is retrograde, which means it is a time for reflecting, re-connecting and renovating aspects of your life that just aren’t working.  I’ve been working diligently on my list of loose ends that need tying up so I can free up the energy I waste worrying about or avoiding these things. My goal is to reclaim the energy lost on leaving these things undone,  so I can bring it into my life to use on what I am creating and manifesting in the here and now.

Energy work isn’t just something you do just in meditation or on your body, like with Reiki. It’s something you need to do in your home and all aspects of your life too.

Remember I’ve talked this year about my friend Stephanie Mitchell, the Feng Shui consultant at Tranquil Waters Designs? She has been guiding me on how to redesign my personal space (and life) so I have the space (literally and emotionally) to bring in the soul mate I’ve been wanting to meet.  By the way, Stephanie is giving free consultations right now, so if some aspect of your life needs clearing and recharging, contact her and tell her I sent you.

On the other hand, if you are feeling raw, shaken or overwhelmed, contact me for a Reiki session. I can help you reconnect with your center and find out what your heart and soul need to weather the shifts this summer more easily.  Let’s get you back to a place where you feel at ease with your body and your process. I’m offering these 75 minute sessions for $70, or 45 minutes for $45 but if you are a Reiki or energy healing student or practitioner of any level or practice, there is a special price for you.  Just let me know when you schedule your appointment, so you can get the energy worker rate.  Call 978-338-4326 or email me to schedule an appointment.  Find out more on my website here.

I’ve got a lot of classes going on this summer, including a Reiki Refresher series to brush up on your Reiki skills. These are open to students and practitioners of any level.  Please take a look at my offerings below.

 

Hope to see you at The Healing Center soon!

greetingthesky.previewGive yourself the gift of Reiki!

Reiki is a gentle type of bodywork that aids emotional harmony, encourages relaxation and stimulates the body’s natural healing processes.

Reiki Certification training provides all the skills needed to direct healing energy to yourself and others. Reiki is taught in four levels and each level builds upon the previous one.

Who will benefit from this?

Joanna specializes in training wellness professionals looking to add Reiki to their repertoire, as well as people who wish to become professional Reiki practitioners. Joanna also works with people who are passionate about mind-body-spirit balance, personal growth, and those who have a burning desire to help others find healing.

What’s involved?

Reiki 1 Certification is taught over a period of 2 months. Class involves lecture, hands on activities and plenty of time for practice. Students go home and practice techniques in between classes. Certification is given at the end once students demonstrate competency in Reiki 1.  Tuition for a group Reiki 1 Certification class is $160.
