A new year has begun with the winter solstice!

We have passed through the Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year, and from here on out the daylight hours will start to grow. I celebrate this point at the end of fall as my personal new year because those growing sunlight hours make a big difference in my well-being. It feels like a new beginning! Here's a Return of the Light guided meditation I recorded on the Winter Solstice a few years back. Enjoy!

In mid-January, I am embarking on a new journey through the Clairvoyant Center of Hawaii. Many thanks to Jill Alexander for her classes over the last two years and introducing me to this next part of my path. The meditation and personal energywork through this tradition is a wonderful complement to one's self-Reiki practice, and I highly recommend you take one of her classes in 2016 if you're ready for a new step in your learning.

I am super excited to start over in a beginner role again and embark a new journey as a spiritual student! Please be aware - I will be taking a sabbatical from new Reiki clients and students as I go through this 1-2 year program. However, I am not going anywhere. I continue to be available to my current and former students and the Reiki community at large for teacher training, mentoring, guidance and business development support. I am still serving on the Celebration of Reiki planning committee. I am still going to write in my newsletter and blog to tell you about the interesting Reiki, meditation and spiritual opportunities I come across, and I will let you know which local events you can find me at when I send you invitations to join me! I also have some workshops and mini-retreats up my sleeve to do fun things like vision boards and whatever seems inspired at the time, so stay tuned.

Please be assured that I will honor all classes that have not completed yet, any outstanding gift certificates and pre-paid sessions moving into 2016. Email or text me to schedule. If my listed openings don't work for you, let me know, as maybe we can work something other time out.

In the meantime, if you are looking to take your next steps with your Reiki training in the Beverly area, I highly recommend seeking out Katherine Oregel at The Healing Center for beginning Reiki classes or Olga Kaminsky at Eternal Balance for advanced Reiki classes. These two lovely ladies also offer sessions. In addition, I recommend Linda Scott, Christine Eaton, and Maria Barresi for sessions in Beverly. I have former students in professional practice (and teaching) all over Massachusetts and a large network of other practitioners in the New England Reiki community, so please don't hesitate to reach out if you are looking for a new practitioner/teacher, as I would be glad to help connect you with someone that you will be happy with.

My annual winter mini-retreat will be at The Healing Center's new location on December 27th at 5pm for $20 (or pay what you can afford). I'll send a reminder this weekend, and you can drop me a note to RSVP at that time.

How are you? I really want to know. Email me to say hello and let me know how you are doing and what's new! Remember - put yourself, your self-care, on your December to-do list!Be well!
