Why I Practice Reiki & Sound Healing

I've been a professional musician and teacher for many years, and am now aware that I am able to benefit all Living beings by being my Highest Self, working through vibrational medicine.

I believe once we feel that urge for change in our lives, we need to follow our heart, support our True feelings, and Be the Change, without feeling guilty.  I will always play cello, as it is an extension of my Self, and you can learn more about that life of service here.
Over the years, I have been guided in many ways down the path of Self-Realization. I was drawn to Energy Medicine in 2014, once my body started opening up more and more to the subtle energies that exist all around us. That year I began receiving Five Element Acupuncture treatments, and physical manipulation of my fascia through Soma Neuromuscular Integration. Through these treatments, my physical body, mind, intuition and life force were beginning to open and heal, and I was aware of a shift in my consciousness. That summer I received my first Reiki attunement, and was able to give myself self-healing sessions.
The next two years were full of deep and nourishing self-discovery, inspired by Hatha Yoga, Hong Sau Meditation, Feldenkrais, Reiki, Meditation, Crystal Bowl Sound Baths, Deprivation Tanks, Massage, Acupuncture, EFT, TFT and a Sweat Lodge. I have so much gratitude for all of these practices and experiences. They encouraged (and many times challenged) me to look at my life, habits, relationships, thought-patterns and career in a new way. Once my body started releasing old patterns
(thank you  Amber West

Ananda and many more!),
I became physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually open to the energies of the Universe, Source Energy, the Divine, God, Guru, Mother Earth/Gaia, whatever you want to call it.
In the Fall of 2016, I decided to move forward and become an Usui Reiki Master. I received attunements from Energy Intuit  Marie Manuchehri, RN. The healing energy freely flows through me, and I am now a vessel for this energy, honored to help others on their journey of healing and self-realization. In 2017 I completed the Art of Sound Healing, Level One with the beautiful Alchemical Sound Healing Practitioner and Light Language artist Irene Ingalls, a Meditation for Musicians Teacher Training with Portland Music Director/Cellist David Eby and a Chair Yoga Training with Little Flower Yoga. In November 2018, I was initiated into Kriya Yoga through Ananda Seattle. This ancient yogi tradition has deepened my meditation practice, my connection to Self and to the Divine energy that exists around and in all of us. 

By following my heart and intuition, my practices, work and interests have pulled me in the direction of Joy, Healing and Love. Would you like to join this band wagon of Peace and Harmony? There will always be space for you. Come as you are, and I will welcome You.
