Reiki Share Monday 9/25

Happy almost Autumn, friends!

I have had a few inquiries about whether or not I would be holding any Reiki shares or clinics anytime soon. Having recently moved my practice to Aligned for Life on Rantoul Street, and my fall semester of school starting up, I haven’t had much time to plan those things out. Luckily, I have friends with similar passions! My friend Marco Aurelio Vinci is a yoga teacher as well as a level 2 Reiki practitioner, and has graciously set up a share for us to host together at Bright Day yoga studio in Wenham (details below). All levels of practitioners are welcome, and from all lineages. It is a beautiful space, and the perfect spot to begin the new season with healing and great company.

Reiki & Yoga


Lately I have been doing a lot more yoga than I did previously, and actually enrolled in a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training that begins this fall. Along with deepening my practice with asanas and learning more about the background and other aspects, I have also been experimenting with combining my yoga practice with my Reiki one, and it has been really enlightening.

When I first got into Reiki in 2013 (when I took a Reiki 1 course with Joanna, the previous owner of THC) I remember part of my reasoning was to expand on my yoga practice, thinking the two would complement each other, yet I can honestly say that up until the past couple of weeks, those two practices of mine never really crossed paths. Whoops!

New Practice Location

Hi there!

It has been awhile since I’ve had any significant news, as I’ve been focusing on school, and my Reiki practice took a bit of a smaller role in my life. As this semester is coming to a close and I feel more confident in my studies, I am excited to announce that I will be offering Reiki services again in Downtown Beverly!

“I’m awake!”

Hello! Long time no see.

My daughter has recently learned the phrase “wake up!”, so now I will often find her screaming that into my face if she sees me with my eyes closed for more than .02 seconds. Sometimes she’ll mix things up a little by saying it while also shaking me as hard as her 2 year old frame will allow. I don’t think I ever considered the possibility that parenthood would involve going to great lengths to prove that I am, in fact, already awake.

Aside from that new development, I feel like I have had quite a lot going on in my life (but don’t we always?). I’m still in school and still LOVING it (I am genuinely excited to do my precalculus homework every week), I moved to downtown Beverly which has been too wonderful for words, and I have been making more time for practicing yoga and handlettering. Overall, this has been one of the best winters I’ve ever had, and I know it’s only partly because we’ve had a pretty small amount of snow.

I’ve been doing my best to focus more on my interests, big and small, and make them more of a priority in my daily life. I think for awhile I was overly consumed with my role as a stay at home mom, and really neglected my own interests and passions. It didn’t occur to me for a long time that preventing myself from doing creative and self-loving things was actually making my job as a mother harder. I take more joy in watching Willow grow and learn now that I also pay more attention to my own needs. Parents need outlets! People need outlets!

I have no other earth-shattering news to share, I just felt like it was time to poke my head out and say hello. I am still offering in-home Reiki sessions and level 1 certification classes on a limited basis, so please feel free to email me at if you’re interested and want to know my availability.

I also wanted to share that All Creatures Veterinary Hospital in Salem is currently a drop-off location for Syrian refugee donations. So if you happen to live in the area and want to donate, they are looking for clothes (for children and adults), toys, feminine hygiene products, diapers, soap, bags, bedding, and a few other items. Click here to visit their website, though I don’t think they have any information about the donation drive on there (I receive their email newsletters and it was included in their most recent one). Everything they receive will be shipped to Syria.

I hope you are all doing well!

Take care of yourselves,

 Nutrition for Increased Energy and Better Moods Workshop
with Iris Weaver, Shamanic Hernalist
Thursday, March 6th from 6-7:30 p.m.
Did you know that what you eat and how you prepare it has a major effect on your energy levels and your moods? Are you tired of feeling tired and/or grumpy, sad, or just uninterested in life? Eating a nutrient-dense diet is the best way to address your energy needs and improve your moods! Our ancestors ate foods that were minimally processed and were full of the essential nutrients needed to feel their best. You can learn to eat that way too, with simple changes to your eating habits. In this overview of nutrient-dense eating we will look at how our ancestors ate, what are the best ways to prepare our foods, how to incorporate them into a modern life-style, and some recipes and suggestions to get started. Come and get started on changes that will benefit you for the rest of your life!  Preregistration required.
This introductory class is specially priced at $15.00!
To register or for more information,
