Dawn Hancy, RMT, founder of Essential Arts, loves introducing people to the astonishing simplicity and gentle power of Reiki. She has been studying and practicing Reiki since 2009 and continues to discover more beautiful gifts of Reiki every day through self-Reiki, professional practice, teaching, volunteering and creating community wellness programs. She also founded Integrated Community Resilience, a nonprofit program that brings Reiki and other wellness practices to populations with limited access and resources. She enjoys teaching and serving people of all ages with Reiki from children at camp to elders in nursing homes and even hospice patients and their families. Dawn is the Reiki program coordinator at Gifford Medical Center, and new Orange County Coordinator with the Vermont Reiki Association as well as a member of Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals. Currently, The Essential Art of Reiki on iFundWomen is a crowdfunding campaign for a pilot project to expand her offerings to help both Reiki-practitioners and non-practitioners alike achieve Optimal Wellness and Success.
