Her deep connection to reiki core concepts of presence, active listening, body awareness, deep focus, and commitment to daily practice all have seeds in and resonate with her theater training.

She was recently privileged to travel to Japan and visit many of the historical sites crucial in the early development of Usui Reiki Ryôhô. The name” Empty Space Reiki” is derived both as a homage to theater great Peter Brook, author of the The Empty Space and to Buddhist Japanese concepts of non duality.
