- Reiki I and II with Lizzie was one of the most transformational and empowering spiritual experiences that I’ve had. I’ve always wanted to learn a way to help me better understand myself and others, and for me this was a perfect next step on my journey. Lizzie emanates such a magical, open and powerful vibe and I feel honored to have her as my teacher!
- Being led on a journey with Lizzie as Reiki Master was purely divine. Lizzie’s approach to teaching is as respectful and responsible to the material as it is inspiring, healing and even fun. Lizzie’s natural ability to create safe space allowed this training to be so much more than an awakening to the power of Reiki but also an awakening of self and spirit.
