The Best Reiki Training in the Pacific NorthWest

It has been such great experience working with Reiki Master Rebecca Hay over the past several years as I completed my Reiki Level I & II, and more recently my initiation as a Reiki Master. Laozi said, "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear" and such is true for me. Rebecca is a born story teller and healer and 30 years of Reiki and healing in First Nations across canada provides lots of stories for her to tell. I look forward to standing beside Rebecca as we initiate a new generation of healers arising from and in service to trans, Two-Spirit, nonbinary people and their families, friends and communities across the NorthWest.
