Students appreciate this traditional, apprentice-style Reiki Training and ongoing mentoring and support.  I appreciate the time and effort students put into learning and honing their craft while deepening their understanding and expertise. It shows in their work, and I am proud of their accomplishments. Some have moved into their own practices. Others are volunteering at Care Dimensions (Hospice of the North Shore) and the Northshore Health Project.
