About

My earliest and fondest childhood memories center on my relationship with animals, particularly horses. In 2004, I transitioned from a corporate career into a profession that would enable me to re-connect more closely with these powerfully sentient and wise beings. Establishing Michigan Equine Therapy enabled me to work daily with the animals I love, providing therapeutic massage and energy healing techniques to improve the quality of horses' lives. Complementary care; such as bodywork and Reiki, offers tremendous opportunity for healing and growth for animals just as it does for humans. My experiences working with horses proved to me that we ...See All

Our first webinar was a great succes and so I am offering this as a repreat for those who could not join us on 12/22. Timed with the bright light of the new moon, we will mindfullyand compassionately review and release the energies of 2018 and begin to intentionally co-create the year we want for 2019. Ancient cultures were much more closely connected to the cycles of the sun and moon, and the seasons. Ceremonies and rituals marked these moments of significance. Tonight we will create rituals and ceremony to compassionately release 2018 and intentionally create a 2019 that reflects our highest good. It is a time of reflection, thanks and forgiveness that we can give ourselves and the planet for the healing of the world. During our time together we will center and ground ourselves, clear old energy of the past and create sacred space to invite in a more loving and compassionate future. Everyone is welcome to join this gathering.
What is distance or remote healing? How does it work? What kinds of issues does it help? How can I (or my animals) benefit from this work? We will explore all of these questions and more. This webinar is an introduction and overview. The truth is everything exists in an energetic form before it becomes physical. We will play with energy and invite it into our experience. We will be doing a couple of brief exercises and a visualization, so you can experiment with energy for yourself! Be sure that you are using a compatible browser and have headset/ microphone capabilities, or we can do Q and A through instant messaging on the platform.
We have been rocked to our cores watching the tragedies of the fires in California. So many lives lost, so many habitats and environments ruined. We fear for the missing and displaced. This is our opportunity to come together as a community of animal lovers to share loving intentions for healing for all of those effected by the horrible fires in California. Everyone is welcome. You do not need to be a Reiki or energy practitioner to participate. Bring your open heart and loving intention for all suffering beings and we will lift them up.
This class is for anyone who has been faced with the overwhelming decision to end a beloved animal's life. If you have had a lifetime with animals, you have probably had this painful experience. Perhaps you wonder and worry that you ended your animal's life too soon, or waited too long and thereby prolonged their suffering. Euthanasia guilt is very powerful and overwhelming and adds complexity to healing our grief over the loss of a beloved animal. If you would like an opportunity to communicate with your animal(s), this is the webinar you have been waiting for. If you have regrets, guilt, or even questions, we can release and heal these during our session together with the animals who have crossed.
Many of us dearly miss those animals who have meant so much in our lives.There are things we want to say. We have questions. Most of all, we want them to know how much we love them and miss them. This is a guided visualization that will enable you to connect with your animal family whenever you want.
During this session you will be invited to tell the group your animal's name, location, and species. We do not need to know more than that, but you may share more if you wish. After introductions and some basic information, we will do a guided visualization, and I will send distance Reiki to everyone who wishes to participate and receive Reiki. You do not need to be in physical proximity with your animal for both of you to participate. During the webinar, you will type in the names,species and locations of your animals and we will set our intention to send Reiki to them wherever they are. This can include animals who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge. A little about my background: I am a Holy Fire II Usui and Registered Karuna Reiki Master. I study with and have received my attunements and initiations from William Lee Rand of the International Center for Reiki Training.William is generally considered one of the leading teachers, researchers, and practitioners of Reiki in the world. So I am very fortunate to have studied with one of the best! ;) I am a lifelong animal lover and rescuer and have devoted many years to working professionally with animals. My life's purpose is to be an advocate and helper of all animals. Reiki is one of the many gifts I can share freely and without limitation to all animals on the planet. If you do not know, Reiki is a traditional Japanese method for natural relaxation and stress reduction that was brought to the U.S. after WWII. It utilizes positive, loving, universal energy and does not violate free will. Over the last several decades Reiki has become increasingly more popular in hospitals, nursing homes, veterans programs and in other health care and wellness locations. It is safe, gentle, and has no side effects or risks. It is not a religion and is compatible with any belief system. My goal is to offer Reiki to all the animals of the world who need and want to receive this loving and healing energy. I also wish to create a community of connected animal advocates and animal lovers who are open to sharing knowledge that can help all species live more peacefully and healthily on our planet.
This brief webinar is designed to provide you with some quick grounding and centering exercises that you can do at any time when you need to feel more fully relaxed and present in your body. I highly recommend that you do these exercises before any of my webinars as it will give you a good head start in developing body awareness and intuition.
Understand the top three issues that prevent horses and riders from working cooperatively together. This informational session is intended for horse owners / riders who are experiencing challenges with their horse that are not due to a diagnosed medical condition or injury. It will also be helpful for anyone who works with horses and wants to expand their knowledge and improve their interaction with them. This is not riding instruction, natural horsemanship, or horse training.
This class is for animal lovers who have little or no experience with energy based healing concepts. It provides a general overview of traditional Reiki and how it can be of assistance particularly to animals. Reiki is a traditional Japanese method for natural relaxation and stress reduction that also stimulates the body's own healing properties. This is an introductory talk and is not actual Reiki Training. I am offering an live class in Bloomfield Hills Michigan on January 30-31, 2016 that you may enroll for. Details are on my website.
Horses are masters of emotional intelligence. They have much to teach us. In this introduction I will discuss what makes horses so compelling and spiritual. What their evolutionary story can mean for us, and how to begin to tap into their energy and awareness.
