Since childhood I have been deeply drawn by movement as a powerful source of spiritual growth and healing. My love of dance and music led me to a long career in dance, first as a dancer and then as an academic. But it wasn’t until I began developing my intuitive healing gifts through reiki and shamanic reiki that I understood a deeper purpose for my life: bringing movement and energy work together.

Reiki is an ancient and powerful form of hands-on energy healing originating from Japan. The word reiki translates roughly to “universal life force energy.” In reiki, this universal life force energy is channeled from the practitioner to the client in order to restore harmony and balance to the energetic field. Having first been trained a dancer and then as a reiki master, I actually view dance as a form of reiki. The dancer, like the reiki practitioner, moves energy through his or her body, evoking images, emotions, and dynamic states. Reiki and healing dance share the goal of releasing stagnant energy in the body, and freeing up room for joy, freedom, and inspiration. Bringing reiki and dance together empowers us to be active agents in our own healing in a deeply embodied, creative, and playful way. At Dance into Wholeness, I offer both traditional reiki and personalized reiki-informed dance sessions


I also offer guided shamanic journeys to deepen the path of discovery for clients. Shamanic journeying is a powerful tool for exploring one’s own internal spiritual landscape. Individuals may journey to identify and receive wisdom from spirit guides, release negative attachments, and understand the spiritual roots of present life circumstances. Upon request, I will also journey on behalf of a client where appropriate.
