I tend to teach Reiki classes by request only and often have Reiki students of other teachers connect with me when they feel called to complete their Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher training. If you have questions or interest, please contact me.

Reiki Certification Classes of all levels are now forming for the Michiana (Northern Indiana) area. Students will learn how to provide healing, relaxing energy treatments for themselves and others. Reiki offers a wonderful complement to massage therapy and other healing modalities, but it can also be used as natural healing support for friends and family. Each level offers full instruction and certification to offer Reiki Treatments. No prerequisites for Reiki Level 1!

Some Previous Classes:


Saturday, August 25, 2012 from noon-5 p.m. in East Madison.

I’ve been “told” to host this class at our own home, affectionately known by all visitors and occupants as “The Faery Cottage.” Class size will be limited, and I’ve already had three signups. The faeries and other elementals themselves asked me to teach this class at this time in order to help humans reconnect with other beings who love the Earth. As always, this class will be tailored to the day’s participants, but we will cover the basics of inviting faeries into your home and garden, ways to increase your receptivity and creativity, basic faery manifestation advice, dimensional shifts and portals, and a general overview of the faery rules of engagement. This promises to be a fast paced and exciting class. The faeries want to work more closely with humans interested in healing our Earth. They tell me this class is perfectly timed for all the changes happening in late August.

$133 if prepaid by August 18th; $155 after 8/18. Pre-registration required, as there are only 5 spaces left.

What do human evolution, crystals, technology, telepathy, GMO’s, Earth, and the faery realm have in common? Learn how the distant past influences current timelines and collective choice points. Experience your own creative and intuitive power, supporting the glorious potential of 2012. Yes, you can help to heal collective wounds from the Fall of Atlantis and the the Mists of Avalon! This class is both informative and experiential, specially tailored to the day’s participants.

Sunday, November 2, 2008  Past Lives Workshop  

Are you plagued by old patterns that you just can’t seem to shake?  Do you dream of “familiar” faces or surroundings that you don’t recognize?  Need to shed light on troubling relationships?  This workshop explores everything from ideas of karma and retribution, Biblical interpretations of past lives, persecution complexes, phobias, blocks to abundance, parallel dimensions, soul connections and soul mates, deja vu, ways of healing soul residues, and more.  

(*For the story of how and why I originally began to offer past life readings and classes, please scroll down.)

The workshop will be held at a private residence with ocean views of Bodega Bay.  Weather permitting, we may even utilize some of that cleansing ocean and wind energy to help clear away past issues and embrace the present.  $300 if prepaid by October 10; $350 after October 10.

Class will run from 10 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, November 2 (with a break for lunch).  Pre-registration required due to limited space.  707-658-2787.

* I never in a million years expected to offer past life readings or workshops, but the concept had nagged me since 1998.  Even as a practicing medical intuitive, I avoided the topic unless absolutely necessary in a session.  I just felt like we could never prove the existence of past lives, and even if we could, who cared?  Didn’t this life matter much more than what happened long ago? 

Fast forward to November 2006:  I needed to wear glasses and desperately wanted to get rid of them by year’s end.  If I failed to wear them, I suffered severe migraine headaches and sometimes vertigo, and contacts were not an option for this particular vision problem.  I meditated on how to get rid of the glasses by January 1, 2007, and the following message came:  “Embrace All Past Lives.” 

“Fine,” I thought, “I have past lives.  Great, I embrace them.  Let’s move on.”  But no, the message continued that I needed to bring this awareness into my medical intuitive and coaching sessions.  “Oh, man!” I thought.  “Come on!  These people will think I’ve lost it.”  But the message remained firm, and I REALLY wanted to get rid of those glasses! 

As an experiment, that afternoon, I let myself tune into my clients’ past life issues, shared the information, put multiple lifetimes into context, and thought little more of it.  Later that day, I got a terrible headache.  It throbbed like migraines from the old days of my head injury.  I took off my glasses, and the pain immediately subsided.  I noticed that I could read without strain without my glasses, and I have never worn them since! 

The next week, I asked those clients if they wanted to discuss the usual issues we’d been working on.  They all said, “Oh, I’m done with that.  After you put things into context, I realized I could move on.”  These were people who had done counseling on such issues for 10 years or more, plus coaching with me for several months.  Poof!  No more issue. 

While not everyone drops patterns quite so quickly, over the years, I have seen enough dramatic and fast shifts through past life work to recognize the value of exploring these alternate realities.  I’ve designed this workshop to meet the needs and interests of the days’ participants, but based on past classes and sessions, I expect some nice transformations.

    Hi Janet,
    Thanks for commenting. I do teach Conscious Eating 101 classes, but I will also email you privately.

    I’m mostly vegan and have been thinking about adding some raw food in. Just wondering if you offer any class like that in the reno area?



    • Posted by laurabruno on October 19, 2011 at 12:54 am

      I’m not in the Reno area anymore, so no, I’ve not got anything set up for there right now. I know there are some people interested in raw foods in the Reno/Tahoe area, but I think the raw restaurant closed. Not sure if anyone’s teaching there anymore. I do have an ebook you might like: …it helps you to find your own balance and is the culmination of many classes I’ve taught and repeat questions from many raw food coaching sessions. 🙂
