The Small Things

Ah no… this is not a post on gratitude. It is about other little things, not the ones we should pay attention to and be grateful for. I admit, the picture there is misleading. I recently dug out from the bottom of a cabinet our fondue set: new lockdown, new menu. Allez, some enthusiasm! OnlyContinue reading “The Small Things”

Just for Today

As many of you know I am a Reiki Master. It’s kind of funny to write “I am a Reiki Master” because I find labels of this kind, of any kind really, to be somehow limiting and limited. I mean, Reiki is so many different things to different people that I can’t help wondering whatContinue reading “Just for Today”

Mirror, Mirror…

I was recently asked to create a lasting memory of a magical day with the bride’s bouquet.

As I entered the room, the caregiver said to the patient: “Oh look, it’s the lady with the warm hands. The session you really enjoyed last week.” This is my favorite testimonial amongstContinue reading “Don’t know how, but it works”

Lock downs and social distancing have been the norm since the beginning of the pandemic. As a consequence I’ve been practicing more often Distance Reiki and have been asked numerous times to explain it. Reiki is a non-invasive practice that can facilitate a sense of deep relaxation and help restore balance within the system. ItContinue reading “Distance Reiki, say what?”
