I started my business in 2002 because I really wanted a platform to teach what I had learned. By that time, I had studied various forms of meditation and healing and I had become a Reiki Master Teacher. I didn’t feel like a “master,” but I had mastered the practice of Reiki and I was ready to share my knowledge with others. I have been teaching Reiki and other spiritual workshops ever since. My Reiki course has gone through many revisions throughout the years. I probably revise it each time I teach. At this point though I am going through some major changes, branding the Reiki I teach, making it unique to me and the people who practice it. It’s called Wildflower Reiki. Wildflower is a way of describing myself, and the people I have taught (and will teach,) and the way Reiki is spreading throughout the world… like wildflowers!
I’m a woman of many interests but my education, experiences, and passions have led me to narrow my business focus to working closely with women.
I practice Christianity, and A Course in Miracles. I am open to and practice healing and spirituality techniques that come from other cultures, religions, philosophies, and ways of life.
I’m open to learning new things, but everything I learn goes through a discernment process – and a lot of what I take in ends up on the cutting room floor.
I look for deep spiritual meaning: Does this teaching resonate with me? How does this stuff hold up to the light of truth? I certainly don’t know everything but I trust my instincts.
I’m open to working with each and every woman who walks through my door whether they have a religious or spiritual preference that differs for mine or not.
Spirituality is something to be celebrated as a community and it is also a very personal experience.
Everyone’s experiences are different. Everyone’s experiences are legitimate.
I’m a person who, at this point in my life, has one foot in the business world and one foot in the work world. Allow me tell you a bit about the work I do …
I work as a residential support worker at a shelter for abused women and their children. It’s a place of hope and new beginnings. My job involves supporting women as they take the practical and emotional steps needed to transform their lives after a relationship break down. I sometimes help lead a support group for children and teens who have witnessed violence. It is rewarding work.
My other job is at a church – I’m a family and youth minister. I take care of the children and family programs, creating ways for families to come together in a community of faith, and attending to spiritual and bible education for the children and youth. It’s a fun job and the people are amazing!
Oh yeah – that’s another thing about me. I’m always taking some sort of course. That will never change – I will always be learning and bettering myself in some way. This year I’ll complete the Ontario Jubilee program – for Spiritual direction. What an amazing experience it has been so far. I have a certificate in Leadership Development from the Centre for Christian Studies, and I’m trained in Emotional Freedom Technique, BodyTalk, and Primordial Sound Meditation, and SOZO. I draw on my intuition, and my education and experiences in my practice as guided by Spirit. Each session is unique.
I’m a volunteer at a hospice where I do Reiki on patients and their family members. I’ve learned a lot doing that work – I have the fundamentals of Palliative care course and plan to continue my education in this area.
