A MESSAGE FROM MICHAL

“Reiki guided me through my journey of transformation; it helped me heal my past, and led me to living my purpose every day. I used to be unhappy, avoiding dealing with the trauma of my six failed pregnancies by overloading myself with responsibilities, making myself busier and busier every day. I was stressed, unhealthy, and overweight. At my mother’s funeral, I realized that if I didn’t do something, I would end up like her.

My healing began the day I saw an ad for Reiki in a local magazine. Over the next few years, I began practicing Reiki and meditation, lost ninety pounds, and became a certified life coach. I’ve dedicated my life to helping others heal and find balance in their lives like I did.

Since 1996, I have been fulfilling my sacred responsibly to share healing with the world. I have certified hundreds of Reiki practitioners worldwide. Supported by an amazing team, I have developed two wonderful Reiki communities, one in Atlanta and one in NYC. We are proud to offer ongoing support to our students and provide them with the resources needed to expand, heal and grow.”

Ruth Petitt

Lead Instructor

Certified Health Coach, Young Living Essential Oils Distributor, Ashtanga Yoga Instructor, Reiki Master, and Military Veteran

“I was a yo-yo dieter in high school with my mom actively monitoring the ups and downs with weigh-ins and a jogging plan. After high school, I lost over 50 pounds and have kept it off for over 30 years. 

While serving in the United States Navy, I discovered weight training and it revolutionized my world! I was a certified personal trainer for 10 years and a nutritionist as well. I am divorced with one cat and I love to travel.

Reiki is an amazing gift that I tap into every day for myself and others! I love to empower people to bring about change and transformation to their lives!”

Jen Burkart

Reiki Master

Mother, Wife, and Certified Reiki Master since 2014

“I began my journey with Usui Reiki in 2013 and became a Certified Reiki Master in 2014. I’ve been a lifelong student of many different areas surrounding holistic and healing modalities.

After many years of working in Human Resource Management in the corporate world, I decided to step back to raise my family. I’m married with a 14 year old son who loves Reiki and has a passion for yoga.

Reiki is a beautiful modality which guides my daily life and supports me by bringing me back to balance every day. I love to share Reiki with others and watch them grow along their journeys with this amazing guiding light!”

Moira Cleary

Teaching assistant

Certified Professional Coach, Energy Leadership Master Practitioner, and an Associate Certified Coach through the International Coaching Federation.

Most recently, Moira received her Reiki Master Level and is enjoying combining Coaching with Reiki to heal the heart, mind, and soul.

“I began my healing journey through coaching and then realized that I had never addressed the pain left in my past. It wasn’t until I found Reiki that old wounds began to heal and I could move past these blocks. For the first time, I know what it feels like to be authentically myself!!”

Thanks to Coaching and Reiki, Moira jokingly refers to herself as a “Recovering Control Freak”. She is currently enjoying living in the present moment and in her perfectly imperfect life. Moira relies on Reiki to help her stay energized and centered throughout the day.

“I am a big animal lover and I spend a lot of time volunteering in rescue centers. My hobbies are photography and travel; and I enjoy sharing these hobbies with friends.

Reiki has been a powerful tool to help me regain my inner strength, gain clarity, and find balance.

It has given me so much light and naturally I want to help others be the best version of themselves that they can be through the healing power of Reiki.”
