    My workshops flow from my quest for the Sacred Feminine blended with my experience practicing and teaching yoga.

    I've been a Kripalu Yoga instructor since 1979. I've also trained as a yoga and bodywork therapist.

    From 1981 to 1988, I served on staff at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Lenox, MA. During this time, I led yoga classes for thousands of guests, conducted a practice in bodywork therapy, designed workshops on many aspects of holistic health, and trained yoga teachers and bodyworkers.

    In the course of my continuing yoga studies, I learned how cultures around the world have valued the body's center as sacred. Delving deeper into this subject revealed connections between the body's center and qualities of the soul, the extent of women's power in family and society, and the degree of a culture's reverence for Sacred Feminine.

    The idea of becoming a Reiki practitioner evolved from a book I got in 1991. It is called “Reiki Universal Life Energy” written by Bodo J. Baginski and Shalila Sharamon. I felt so at home with what I was reading. Then in time things started to move along and Reiki became more main stream and finally affordable. In 1998 I found a woman locally that I could learn from. I was joyous! Things evolved from there.

    I first obtained my Reiki Level 1 from Deborah Anderson August 1, 1998 and my Reiki Second Level with Lorrie Salluzzi October 31, 1998. I also did a wonderful online brush up Reiki Levels 1, 2 with Darla Meng in May- October of 2002. I became a Reiki Master Practitioner November 17, 2002 with Carol Denicker in Northport, N.Y.

    Giving and receiving Reiki is always an experience. I enjoy providing this service and also offer long distance healing for those who would like it. I will gladly put your name on my healing list along with the address the energy is to be sent to.
