The essence of my life has changed tremendously because of my sessions of Reiki with Kathie. The powerful Reiki energy that flows thru her has allowed me to continue on my path to health on many levels. Kathie is always open and grounded in pure love and has profound support for her clients.

As a migraine sufferer for over a decade I have tried everything from seeing headache specialists, taking prescription drugs, going for acupuncture, massage and chiropractic treatments, all without any relief. As a yoga teacher I know the importance and benefits of meditation, relaxation, deep breathing and the healing capacity of the body when energetically supported to release and let go of stress and tension. Kathie Anderson, a long-time friend and Reiki practitioner, suggested Reiki at one point during a painful migraine episode. Even though Kathie lives across the country from me I was familiar with the benefits of long distance Reiki and I was literally writhing in pain, so I thought I have nothing to lose!
What happened next was miraculous. Within ten minutes from the start of the treatment I felt my whole body begin to have a sensation of quieting down. The intense nausea began to subside and the gripping physical tension began to melt. As I felt my whole body deeply relax, a swell of emotion came up and I began to sob. This release of emotional stress was what my body actually needed and the Reiki healing allowed me to get there. The migraine immediately stopped. Even though Kathie was miles away she held sacred space for me to go through this process and could validate what I was feeling from what she was sensing during our session.
Since that first healing I have called upon Kathie’s Reiki expertise to support me during other painful migraine episodes, and each time, the Reiki has worked when nothing else does. I highly recommend Kathie especially if you need support with stress, anxiety or pain. The whole body benefits of Reiki are extraordinary and Kathie’s kind, compassionate and skillful service will leave you truly grateful that you have finally found someone who can help you in mind, body and spirit.

At first I was a little nervous about what it would be like to participate in the class, but I also knew that Kathie Anderson was a very talented instructor from the previous dream workshop I had participated in. At the beginning of the class, Kathie outlined what the process would be in a very simple to understand and clear method. Kathie mentioned to us in the beginning that the soul and this physical body we have are connected but sometimes things can get disconnected or blurry. The soul knows what needs to happen to get re-connected better and chakra-dancing is a method to let that happen. Once the music started, it was fun to just have my eyes closed and let the music move me instead of trying to dance. One of the chakras made me feel like I was floating….or had wings and I felt very light on my feet as the music played. I was very surprised when we got to the throat chakra and I didn’t feel like I had to move much at all. It wasn’t bad or good….I tried to release any judgement about if I moved or if the music didn’t need to make me move much at all. Then we got to the third eye chakra and wow…it really felt like something else took hold of me and I danced until I was breathing hard…it was so fun I didn’t want that music to stop. After the dancing, we used colored chalk to create a mandala on paper that represented the experience too. I ended up drawing what looks like a purple lotus flower and while I’m not an artist, I kind of like the image and have kept it on my dresser to look at often when I get ready for work in the mornings. At the very end of class, we briefly meditated on setting an “intention” to connect our dance experience to our lives in the next couple days. In retrospect, it was a very fun experience that I believe has had lasting benefits in my calmness and clarity, and focus in my daily life.
It was transformative. It really supports the body, mind, spirit on so many levels.

Highlight of my week, even though I sometimes didn't want to come (sleeping in). I always came away renewed. This [Chakradance] was an awakening and opening experience.

It was a good way to see people, slow down, and be mindful about the bigger picture rather than the daily craziness and distractions. I think it was a new way to be mindful of the various aspects of my life that were represented by the various chakras. I am not generally a person who expresses themselves physically, so it was good to try something new. I also LOVED the throat chakra...more than I expected I would. There is truly no wrong way to do it, so I think it would be a good confidence booster for people.

My Chakradance experience was so much fun! I loved exploring each chakra every week and I learned so much more about each of my individual chakras than I ever did in my years of studying them & reading about them. Kathie was very personable, professional, knowledgeable & I could tell she really loves & is enthusiastic about the subject.
