A chronic condition forced me into re-evaluating my lifestyle and to seek relief that medical doctors alone could not provide. I became aware of the mind-body connection and; how coupled with spirituality, they can combine (sometimes in addition to medical care) to create more holistic state of health. My seeking led me to a book on Reiki which sounded like the practice I was looking for - but I learned a teacher and an attunement were necessary. Synchronistically, Mary Farmer came to my attention as a Reiki teacher. It is important to have a teacher who is heart centered and approachable as you journey with Reiki. You could not ask for a better teacher than Mary. My attunement to Reiki by Mary has opened my heart and mindto healthier ways of being, to a deeper connection with Spirit. I see the world and myself with new eyes. I have progressed to Reiki Master (although I do not teach or practice professionally) and I am thankful every day for Reiki and Mary Farmer. Reiki is a blessing to both myself and my family.
