It has been a busy month and it is hard to believe it is almost over.  

For those who have been asking about classes- please see the Class Schedule page and contact me if you want to come before the end of the month.  

Unless there is a special request, I will not be holding any more classes until January 2015.  

With Christmas on track, if you are looking for a gift or stocking stuffer, I offer gift certificates and loyalty cards. 

If you know a Reiki Practitioner and would like to give them a wonderful gift- I still have "The Reiki Touch" kit in stock for $30.00.  This kit was developed by William Rand, International Centre for Reiki Training.  It has a wonderful DVD on how to give self treatments and treatments on others.  It also contains a Reiki Information book, Reiki Music and Mediations.

Reiki is a wonderful thing to have going into a traditionally busy and stressful time of year.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

In Harmony, Health & Happiness!

With Fall in full swing- cooling down and less light- it is a good time to start thinking inwardly.  Time to say 'whew', the busyness of summer is over, now what am I going to do for Me!  (Before the next busy season is before us- shhh- the "C" word.)

I will be offering Usui Reiki courses in November for all levels.  I am currently looking into a facility that can accommodate the classes and will be posting class schedules and times shortly.

For those who would love to take 45 minutes or an hour just for your own well being and pampering- I am available for appointments.

There are two locations you can choose from: 
*  Amherstview 
*  Health for Life Medical Centre, Kingston (Wednesdays from 4-8 pm only).

Words To Reflect On

Recently I received an email from someone and at the bottom were the first few words from a poem I so loved when I was younger.  I was inspired to find it, find out more about it.  The poem is "Desiderata" written and published by Max Ehrmann in the 1920's.  It still resonates, if not more so today in the big shift in our world and people.

I share it here with you- may it bring you peace, direction and hope:

" Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy."
Thank you Max for your visionary words!
Light and Love,

The founder of Reiki in Japan, Usui Mikao, developed "ideals" to be woven into everyday life.  I share these with you so in a quiet moment, perhaps before you start your day, you can reflect on:

"The secret art of inviting happiness.  The miraculous medicine of all diseases.

Just for today, do not anger.
Do not worry and be filled with gratitude.
Devote yourself to your work.
Be kind to people.

Every morning and evening, join your hands in prayer

Pray these words to your heart and chant these words with your mouth.

Usui Reiki Treatment for the improvement of body and mind."

Even if you have never had a Reiki treatment or have been instructed in Reiki, you can go mindfully through each moment of your life.

As you read this I am sending you Reiki and great health*harmony*happiness.  Spread it around.......

Love and all good things!

There are insurance companies in Canada who are offering a paid benefit for Reiki Treatments. 

The Canadian Reiki Association, of whom I am a member, has provided all members with a professional form clients can use to submit their claim. 

If you are not sure if your provider will accept the claim, the Canadian Reiki Association is asking the Practitioners to continue to encourage clients to submit the claims.  "Rejected claims will only bring awareness to the insurance industry.  It is our intention that this form of awareness will help to shift the insurance industry to include Reiki in all Extended Health Care packages."  Bonnie Smith, President, Canadian Reiki Association.

If you have successfully submitted a claim to your Group Health Care provider, please email me at so I can share the companies who have approved the claim.

Love and all good things!

Appointments can be anywhere from 20 minutes to one hour with 15 minutes between clients.  Once you have confirmed your appointment, I will provide you with directions if this is the first time to my centre.

If this is your first Reiki treatment, I recommend you take a look at the tabs "About Reiki" and "What to Expect".  

To Book: or (613) 572 2900. 
  (Note: during the week, calls will be returned between 12-1:00 pm EST or after 4:30 pm EST.)

I will be working over the next few weeks on a course schedule for May 2014. If you would like to book a private class or have a small group of friends who would like to take the first level of Reiki, feel free to contact me to discuss a weekend date.

If you have a group event or Girls Night coming up, and you would like to provide mini treatments to your guests, contact me for more information and group rates.

I am currently negotiating for use of space in a downtown Kingston location. If we come to a successful agreement, I will be offering treatments at the Centre on Wednesday evenings.  This will make it easier for clients who are working downtown.  I will be posting details next week.

If you have at least Level I Reiki, I would like to invite you to Reiki shares at my Centre on alternate Sundays.  Please contact me for dates and times.  I would love to meet you and introduce you to my Reiki colleagues.

"Just for today, I will be grateful for all my blessings."

Love and Light!

Continuing Education and the Healing Arts

I think it is easy to dismiss the healing arts/modalities as not being a professional career.  I often laugh and say I finally achieved my Masters education!  The Universe always gives you what you want, but maybe not in the way you expect it! 

I have eagerly read my Spring 2014 Reiki News Magazine from cover to cover. (see below for information).  One could say, well, really, how much more can there be said about Reiki? 

You should hit yourself in the forehead if that thought comes to your mind! 

As we all evolve, our learning and understanding reaches new levels- which leads to yet another level of learning and understanding.  With the risk of sounding like the latest buzzword user, Reiki is enlightenment.  Enlightenment is never static.  It is not narrow minded, it is open and vast.  I loved Laurelle Shanit Gaia's article "How to Gain Confidence in Your Relationship with Reiki". It gave me an attitude adjustment- the logical, earthy, physical thinking part of me needed to be reminded how Reiki really works and my part in it.  Thank You Laurelle!

 Reading William Rand's interview with Hiroshi Doi and "Reiki Before Usui" article, gave me a solid reminder of the importance of continuing my education in Reiki from a professional perspective.  The interview reveals certain historical facts about Usui; about the development of Reiki so long believed to be true which are not. It is not about debunking Reiki, rather, the article clarifies and provides new revelations.  Credibility and reputation are essential to any business which is enhanced by keeping current on the latest facts and developments. The International Centre for Reiki Training, in my opinion, has worked extremely hard to develop Reiki and Reiki Practitioners in a credible and reputable manner.  As a teacher, I will now be updating my courses with the new information.

The beauty of Reiki is you can make use of its beautiful energy however you wish.  You may want to be opened up to Reiki just for your own pampering.  However, for all practitioners and teachers, who have not thought of "continuing education" in the traditional sense, I say go boldly and actively engage!

You can subscribe to the Reiki News Magazine via Vision Publications/International Centre for Reiki Training

Just for today, be happy!
