VRA Board member
Leslie lives in North Sandwich, New Hampshire. She is the owner of Peace of Mind Reiki and Massage. Before joining the Board of Vermont Reiki Association Leslie was part of the organizing platform of Celebration of Reiki, Inc. in Massachusettes. Her passionate service with the CoR team brought strong programming and offerings to the Reiki community in the form of a yearly conference and symposium, outreach opportunities for businesses and organizations, educational and networking offerings and support for the Reiki community. Her practice, Peace of Mind Reiki & Massage, incorporates a range of services that Reiki compliments fully.
Leslie was first introduced to Reiki in 1992, and has incorporated a Reiki practice into her life & work since 1998. During her early years with Reiki she found herself stumbling with many questions and curiosities which led to seek out teachers from a number of directions: Libby Barnett, William Rand, Mari Hall, Michelle Michael Johnson, Arjava Petter, Frans Stiene. Leslie’s encouragement of Reiki practitioners to developing an active participation in ongoing learning and growing, and expanding their knowledge and practice, also brings a deep awareness of the importance of addressing our unconscious biases. Creating opportunity to consider how these imbalances might be mingled into our practices and developing framework that creates a more inclusive offering for all is imperative.
It has become a passion of Leslie’s to bring clear, steady, accurate information to those interested and/or practicing Reiki and to allow her years of engagement with Reiki to be a support to the professional and personal development of others.
