Joan W Maute
As a teacher and practitioner of Reiki and other Healing Arts, 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.
From a lifetime of spiritual exploration, world travel, and working in the Healing Arts, I eventually discovered my true calling in life as a teacher of Reiki. I’ve been a teacher of many different skills throughout my life including other Healing Arts, fitness and nutrition, equestrian sports, yoga, but sharing Reiki with others is really my purpose and passion in this life. Besides teaching, I really enjoy seeing clients and helping them to identify, heal, and release the true origins and sources of their suffering.
Life is an interesting evolution of one thing leading into another that takes us in unexpected directions. As a surfer girl 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.
I’ve been practicing Reiki for over 20 years and am very grateful to be of service in this way to my students and clients. 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 love sharing Reiki and bring to my classes and sessions a combination of excellent training, real life experience, hard earned wisdom, Love, Compassion, Humor, and Grace. Because of my background, I work in a relaxed “Hawaiian style” way infused with the warmth of Aloha that instantly puts clients and students at ease.
It’s truly a joy, honor, and a tremendous blessing to live a Reiki life helping 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
