Reiki Self-Alignment Ritual

Reiki is our universal life force or Source Energy. Invoking it, the Reiki master or practitioner expands the intensity of her focus into form, allowing that universal life force to flow through for others to take as they will.

Energy Work

My first real job after college was as a work activities counselor in a sheltered workshop. It was interesting, but not really what I wanted to do. From there, I went to work as a psychiatric aide at a mental hospital.

The journey from fear to wholeness

“The spiritual path [is] an unfolding into wholeness. Rather than trying to vanquish waves of emotion and rid ourselves of an inherently impure self, we turn around and embrace this life in all its realness – broken, messy, mysterious and vibrantly alive. By cultivating an unconditional and accepting presence, we are no longer battling against ourselves, keeping our wild and imperfect self in a cage of judgment and mistrust.
