What is Reiki?

Reiki means universal life-force energy. It is an ancient Tibetan energy healing modality that was rediscovered by a Japanese doctor, Mikao Usui, in 1922.
The 'Ki' in reiki is akin to chi, qi, prana, or the Holy Sprit. It is the unifying essence that breathes life into us all. It is that which connects and animates. It is not "owned" by anyone or any one culture. Many different cultures all over the world have their unique versions of reiki or energy medicine and as William Rand, the founder of the International Center for Reiki Training, says... anything that utilizes universal life-force energy can be called reiki.  
Reiki can be done either hands-on or hands-off. A reiki session can be in-person or remote. I generally work in-person. When I do hands-on healing, I only touch from the knees down to the feet, shoulders and arms, the back of the torso, and on the head and neck. Client consent is always acquired prior to any hands-on session.
Most clients report feeling more relaxed after reiki. It can give you more awareness of your thoughts and feelings, and help you feel more embodied and present, while helping you heal. Consistent reiki can help heal both physical and mental health issues, although it is not meant to be a replacement for conventional medical care. Reiki is also great as a preventative measure and for energetic maintenance, helping you keep a clear luminous energy field.  
Here is a great, informative article about reiki and its effectiveness from the Cleveland Clinic if you'd like to learn more:

What is your reiki lineage?

My lineage descends from Mikao Usui's Japanese traditions and Vedic Tibetan traditions. I have studied and trained with Juniper Moon Healing Arts, Mosaic Moon Reiki, and Lotus Lounge Healing. I have completed all 3 levels of reiki training and the Master/Teacher level training.

What is Shamanism?

Shamanism is the most ancient form of spirituality known. It is at least 75,000 years old. Shamanism is not merely one tradition, rather various cultures across the globe practice their own versions of shamanism. There are many different names for localized shamanism in each cultures' own language. Shamanism values the mystical experience, direct and personal revelation of spirit. Shamanism is deeply rooted in nature, caring for the earth, and connecting to all the divine nature beings, power animals, and spirit guides. Shamanism can help you discover your true self, listen to your intuition, realize your purpose and see the truth of interconnectedness and unity rather than the illusion of separateness. 

What is your shamanic lineage?

I studied and trained with Everyday Shamanism in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Everyday Shamanism is a part of the Munay-Ki lineage, also known as the Four Winds Tradition, founded by Alberto Villoldo and Marcela Lobos. It is a syncretic blend of Peruvian, North American, and Eastern shamanism. I have gone through the 9 initiation rites of the Munay-Ki as well as the Rite of the Womb. The Munay-Ki tradition was mostly inspired by Villoldo's time spent in the Amazon with the Pacho Shamans, who want their wisdom and rituals to reach as many people as possible around the world with the aim of changing the way people use and abuse the earth, and to inspire people to support the indigenous populations of the Amazon, and to save the Amazon itself. 

I also studied Celtic Shamanism with Jeanne Marie Troge from Mists of the Celtic Heart.

Why is lineage important in energy medicine?

Anytime you work with a professional in energy medicine, they should be able to tell you where and with whom they studied and if they received an initiation and/or a certification. It is unethical to provide energy medicine without the proper training. Lineage is how trainings, wisdom, and initiation rites are passed down. If a person uses any form of energy medicine without training or permission, it is highly unethical, let alone disrespectful to the culture of origin and the Great Spirit that connects us all.

Do you require a contract?

No. My offerings will never require a contract as this is an unethical practice. Every person's healing journey is unique and you cannot give a standardized timeframe for how long it will take to release an issue.  Some people might only need one session while others might come for years. You are in charge of your healing journey.

How do you address cultural appropriation in your practice?

As stated above, if someone is operating outside of lineage and without permission from the lineage, then they are disrespecting the culture of origin and all the ancients, ancestors, and living people who have preserved shamanic wisdom. I only provide offerings and rituals for which I have been trained and initiated to do. I have deep respect and gratitude for all the reishis, pachos, sages, and medicine people who have taken on the task of disseminating this ancient, wondrous wisdom that the world needs so desperately in this Kali Yuga; and I am answering the call to be a part of spreading the wisdom even farther in hopes that more people will choose to be on the side of healing our world by healing ourselves.
