What’s on the Horizon? Coming up…

It’s hard to believe summer is more than half over… with the abundance of rain we have had this year, there is still so much lushness and vibrancy. My mom’s gardens are flourishing and are popping with colour and life. Amidst all this growth and expansiveness, I too feel the urge to open my arms to the sky and drink in the warmth of the sun.

The cooler nights remind me that the summer won’t last forever (it never does), and September will soon bring about a renewed busyness and prescribed routines to manage our time and energy.

As you begin to prioritize your schedules and pencil in those important dates, I want to share with you the upcoming events at Feathers, Rainbows & Roses…

Reiki with Animals workshop

Saturday, August 12th, 2017

I am looking forward to this new learning experience… I know those who are attending will have an amazing day!


The Self Kindness Response: Boundaries for Healthy & Joyful Living Workshop

Friday & Saturday, September 29-30th, 2017, 9am-5pm

I have been offering this life-changing workshop for several years and every time I am awe-struck with how the participants are ready to step out and truly look at themselves with fresh eyes and a open heart.

Over the course of a couple days, we explore, imagine, and ultimately establish individualized new action plans that will guide you in your communications, your life and relationships beyond this workshop.

If you are tired of living your life at less than your full potential, this workshop is for you! Come and find out who you truly are and how you want to re-imagine your relationships and life…

For many more details about this workshop, see Joyful Living.


Peace Circle – Together for Peace: Respect, Safety & Dignity for All!

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017, 7:00 – 9:30pm

In conjunction with the United Nations International Day of Peace, Karen and Shirley Lynn invite you to join them in this global movement of “together for peace”. We will be exploring the question Who will you make peace with on this day?

Through the practice of sitting in circle and listening to each other’s stories of peace done well, as well as sorrow for when we have fallen short of this ideal, we will be strengthening the ideals of peace in our world.

Come, let us stand for respect, safety and dignity for all. Peace is not a distant goal. Peace is the way. For additional information, see Autumn Peace Circle.


Reiki Master/teacher Intensive 

Starting in Spring, 2018

I am again hoping to offer the Reiki Master/Teacher intensive starting in the Spring of 2018. For those current Reiki Level Two students who are considering this next step, please work on your case studies and submit them to me by January 31, 2018.

Students qualify for this level of instruction if they have demonstrated commitment to their personal Reiki practice, have experienced consistently the effects of Reiki in daily life, have reached a certain level of character refinement and understanding, have developed a certain level of sensitivity in their energy healing practice, are ready to commit to a deeper spiritual practice for the purpose of further psycho-spiritual integration.

If you are interested in taking this course, please contact me to discuss your readiness…

On Vacation…

I will be on vacation next week (August 13-20) and will be hitting the open road (and sea) for some much-anticipated family time in New York. I look forward to connecting with you again when I return to my office and email the following week.
