As a teacher and practitioner of Reiki and other Healing Arts for over 20 years, I have joyfully dedicated my life to helping people and animals live better through improved health, well-being, joy, and peace. My home is Hawaii and I bring to my work the warmth and sacredness of the “Aloha Spirit”. A-lo-ha literally means “the breath of God” and is a recognition of the sacred Divinity within another. I honor and recognize this light within every student and client.
A lifetime of spiritual exploration, world travel, and working in the Healing Arts led me to my true life purpose as a teacher of Reiki. I really enjoy sharing Reiki with others in classes, and also seeing clients and helping them with their healing process. Life is an interesting evolution of one thing leading into another that takes us in unexpected directions. As a surfer from the Big Island of Hawaii, I never could have guessed that my fitness background would lead me to becoming a massage therapist, which would then lead me to Reiki and becoming a Reiki Master Practitioner, and then an ICRT Licensed Reiki Master Teacher. Nor did I ever imagine that I’d end up living half the year at home in Hawaii, half the year in Virginia, and traveling around to other parts of the country teaching healing skills to others.
All of these life experiences have molded me into the teacher and mentor I wished I’d had many years ago, and I’m very happy to be able to share with others the essence of my accumulated knowledge and wisdom. I bring to my classes and healing sessions a combination of excellent training, real life experience, hard earned wisdom, Love, Compassion, Humor, and Grace in a relaxed environment infused with the warmth of Aloha that instantly puts clients and students at ease.
It’s truly a joy, honor, and blessing to help others heal and learn lifelong skills they can use to heal themselves, their loved ones, and in turn….. the world.
Peace and Blessings,
Joan W Maute
