NY - Nassau County (North Shore) Chapter

Event: The Gift of Reiki – Presented By Catalina Rivera

April 7, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

When Catalina was 16 years old her mom was diagnosed with a brain tumor. It was benign, and treatable with medications thankfully, but she’d already been feeling terrible for a very long time. Two years of meds before getting relief was still pretty hard for her to fathom.  An acquaintance recommended she try Reiki as well. Six months later the tumor was gone and her mom had never felt better.  At her side (since we are pretty inseparable) she began her journey into the healing arts and discovered a passion for wellbeing.

Catalina’s approach has been diverse. She received regular Reiki sessions, completed Master Level Reiki Training  in several lineages (1998) and started her own practice. She studied the science: AS in Science, BSN in Nursing, Nurse-Midwifery and have practiced as a RN for 11 years. She became a vegetarian, then a vegan and expanded her knowledge on nutrition. She studied environmental toxins, immersed herself in green living and caring for our families and our planet. She has been certified as a Bach Flower Therapist,  dabbled in herbs and aromatherapy, done women’s circles, meditations galore, shamanic healing, yoga, and magnified healing, among other things :)

Ultimately, Catalina has cared for many and have looked at health and wellbeing through multiple facets. There she found a gift and passion for creating wellbeing: for myself, others, and our planet. A gift she would love to share with you!
