Very well presented and in a very serene environment. One of the best CE courses I have experienced. Have been a massage therapist since 1988.
-- PS, Wilmington, NC
This course, experience and instructor not only allowed me to release and ground myself unlike anytime previously, but empowered and reassured me that my perceptions, intuition and degree of energy absorption is very relative and unique to each session and with each practitioner. Thank You!

This experience is beyond words. Debra did a wonderful job explaining, opening space and allowing the atunement to open and reiki to work its magic.

This is my 2nd time taking Reiki II, but w/a new instructor and new place. Excellent experience! The course material was well presented. The manner of instruction was suitable to all learning types.

I so appreciate all the modalities you brought in (music, art, sacred space, stones). Your presence, cadence, manner of communication, and honoring of your students’ ideas and experience is greatly appreciated and is a gift to your students. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and your authenticity.
