"Awesome training session, Vanessa! I have taken all the Reiki including Master/Teacher distantly/via phone and online, and have been in business for 10 years. Since joining Vanessa's classes, the ability to channel in giving Reiki, and even the intensity of the received attunements has been many fold over what my capacity was prior. I would recommend everyone that has done the training through distant/online increase their abilities via hands on teacher training. I am super impressed with Vanessa's training techniques and professionalism!"

New! A New Way to Learn!

 After teaching all of my workshops solely in person, I have transitioned to hybrid and virtual models of learning. Same teaching, same workshop quality, but you are in the comforts of your own home, not having to be masked or physically distanced. For any of the workshops below that are "hybrid", it means that all the teaching is done in a live virtual setting, but the practical work is done preferably in person. (Physical distancing and appropriate PPE will have to be followed in person)  I am so excited to be able to offer these models. I am pleased to offer the same quality of teaching but in a different way:)) Please contact me if you have further questions! 

*For those who still would like in person workshops, these will be considered later in 2021. 

Thank you,

The Color of Healing 

I did my Reiki course Level 1 with Vanessa in 2019, in a face-to-face fashion. I was scheduled to do my Level 2 during the course of April 2020. Due to the isolation restrictions, it became impossible for both of us to proceed in person. We then agreed to do the Level 2, using a live online platform. Since Level 2 is all about distant healing, it made sense to pursue this way. I consider myself lucky to have experienced both, training and attunement, in person and also, by using the live online platform. Going through this process from the comfort of my home, not only made me more receptive to the training, it also increased my awareness of the unlimited malleability of the Reiki Energy, and set me up to truly integrate the notion of its natural capability to travel through time and space. Also, Vanessa successfully made it a vibrant, personalized experience. Using the live platform allowed for face interactions, on the spot feedbacks, and deep exchanges over the practice. The attunements were felt strongly, as they would in person. The overall experience was formative and life changing.


This class was amazing! It allowed me to connect deeper to myself and gave me the tools to aid others with their healing journey with Reiki Energy. She provided me with all the info, tools, support and guidance needed to become a confident, well educated Reiki practitioner. Thank you for all your support and guidance!!

Reiki Healing Wellness

Reiki: Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho Level l


Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is based on an unseen “life force energy” that flows through us and causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to feel stress or anxiety, or worse, get sick and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.  In this 8 hour class, you will learn the foundations of Reiki. After reviewing the history, we will learn the 5 Reiki Principles. These become important to integrate into our daily lives. You will also learn how to do self-reiki as well as have learn multiple types of sessions and eventually learn to do a full  one hour session. If this all sounds appealing, then this is the class for you.

Next in person class will be offered late 2021.
