Immigrant Children, Mrs. Takata and Our Basic Humanity

As you know, I’m a Reiki teacher, which is a practice/art/modality that this particular linage derives from Japan. While it may be common knowledge that Reiki was “discovered” in the early 1920s, but what may not be well known within the history is the jump that it made from a Japanese practice to something that is primarily practiced in the western world today.

My Reiki Story: Jennifer D. 

A year ago I had no idea what Reiki was or that it would be a major influence in re-connecting with my spiritual side. In the past year, or perhaps the last two years, I have been a journey of immense personal and, more recently, spiritual growth.

The Pause: After 14 Years…

And like that, 14 years have come and gone.

I turned in my keys to my Chicago apartment just an hour ago, a place I had called home in East Lakeview. (Note: I will still be teaching Reiki and maybe yoga classes in Chicago – check my schedule for upcoming dates!)
