Marian has worked for the Cedar Rapids School System for 19 years as a para educator. She needed a change so decided to become a certified dog trainer. After hearing about Reiki, her first thought was, “This could help dogs, because they are so sensitive to energy!” She then experienced it herself and decided she should do this with people, too!
She has been on a spiritual journey for many years and decided she wanted to learn more about these spiritual modalities. Eventually she took classes to become a Reiki master and in a few months will take the Master/teacher class in order to teach others.
She is also certified for Theta Healing but not offering this currently. She also took a year-long shaman class and does incorporate this at times. She is also an Ordained Minister. She is constantly learning about other spiritual subjects and taking classes for more awareness. She has so much to share!
