Last weekend, I returned to my Reiki teachers to continue my own learning path of Reiki. Thank you to Donna and Conrad Jestmore for giving me a Reiki "home" to return to! I loved our Okuden Reiki course and can't wait to keep learning with you!

I love offering chakra-balancing Reiki sessions because I find the seven chakras are universal. Most people seem to be aware of them and quite interested in learning more.

I also find the chakras are a fantastic intersection between all I offer—Reiki, meditation, coaching, (and soon, yoga). The chakras give me a simple way to help people understand what Reiki energy is and what it can do.

So why am I continuing my Reiki education even though I'm already a Reiki Master?

Because I'm a learning junkie, duh! Coaching, meditation, Reiki, and yoga are my loves—and all require continuing education. There are deeper reasons:

  1. I am a Reiki Master in the Western "system" of Reiki; I wanted a deeper experience of the Eastern ways.
  2. I'm not a huge fan of what Western Reiki has become and it often doesn't align with my ethics. I lean into Reiki's history and traditions with respect. Western Reiki (I won't name names) has become obsessed with power over others and high-dollar offers. There, I said it. With that said...
  3. I am fortunate, blessed, and glad that I learned Western Reiki first. It gave me Reiki and a start down the healing path.
  4. I'm in it for my own healing! I've been in love with Reiki since 2012. I continue to read about it, study it, and I love to stay true to what Mikao Usui brought to the world. This is also my spiritual path. A healing journey is part of that path, as it is for most of us. The more I heal myself, the more I can offer healing to others.
  5. I seek to "be" Reiki and practice the "way" of Reiki, which is what the Eastern path teaches. Conrad and Donna teach this and our lineage stems from Frans Steine. I'm grateful to them for bringing this to Wichita!

Finally, a word about healing. Western Reiki 2 was something that broke healing wide open for me. This is what Reiki does for us all; it provides a way to come into each person's life and give the person what they need. At the time I took Reiki 2, the healing need for me was to get sober for good.

Happy 10th Sober Birthday to Me!

Wishing myself a happy 10 years? Yes! It may inspire you to get sober, celebrate your wins, or simply celebrate LIFE!

But what's in it for you?

Here's my pledge: everything here remains sobriety-friendly.

As a coach, Reiki Master, meditation teacher, and soon-to-be-yoga-teacher, my goal is to offer mind-body wellness to those who want it without ever lowering myself to shilling booze or drugs.

Destiny Architecture has always been and will always remain a safe place for sober folks.

I refuse to jump on trends like psychadelics, "plant medicine," "mommy wine time," etc. Whatever you call it, it is altering the mind state. As a sober person, I avoid this.

It gives me purpose and meaning to create a safe space for sober people to practice mind-body wellness.

I've refused to offer Reiki to intoxicated people for 9 years (and counting). I'd hate to see someone avoid a yoga class because it involved alcohol or mind-altering substances.

It makes me sad to see "yoga and wine" classes because people like myself feel excluded from them. I don't want sober people to feel left out; yoga is for you, it's for everyone!

My personal interpretation of Patanjali's yoga sutras is that mind-altering substances aren't allowed for yogis and that the practice of yoga isn't congruent with substance use/abuse. In fact, with all the tools of yoga at our disposal, we shouldn't need to alter our minds or opt for the "escape" mind-altering substances might be perceived to offer.

In truth, for many of us, they don't offer escape. They offer much pain, suffering, and heartache. Using susbstances in a disordered way goes against everything spiritual practices are for, which is the release from pain and suffering!

Meet me for a Mind-Body Wellness Circle Saturday (7/1) at 1:00 at White Dove

This Saturday (yes, my actual 10-year sober birthday) I'm hosting a Mind-Body Wellness Circle at White Dove from 1-2 pm. Come for a short group meditation and Reiki session with me. I'll have my tarot cards ready to go! Feel free to ask me questions (if you have any) about:

✨ Meditation, Reiki, yoga, and personal development.

In what area of your life do you need healing? How do healing practices become tools that aid in mind-body wellness? How can you make self-care a priority in your life?

This is my wheelhouse! So come on down. Cost will be a love offering to help support White Dove!
