Shannon is our natural healing arts teacher.
Shannon Marie Svensson - Usui Reiki Master Teacher
It was my love of art that led me to Reiki. I opened my first studio in 1991. Jewelry was my profession, shamanism was my passion. To me there is no separating imagination from spirit, nor the mind from the body. There was always a candle burning at the altar of Love & Light.
I held Full Moon Circles for the women of my community. A Reiki practitioner came to one of our woo-woo gatherings and introduced us to Reiki. The movement of the energy fascinated me. At the time Reiki Master attunement still cost the traditional price of $10,000. Madam Takata based tuition on the value of her home. I kept on with more affordable pursuits like wildcrafting, essential oils, and affirmations. The practice of Yoga and meditation would have to suffice.
Eventually Reiki found me again at the Fairy Congress. My first Reiki master was an Astrologer and Shamanic Faery Seer. He worked with the deep earth magic and showed me how to contact and call the energies of Nature. We walked together over the red-hot coals of a blazing fire. Any resistance to the power of my perspective burned away with that experience.
I’ve been teaching Usui Reiki Ryoho since 2005 because I have found it to be the safest, fastest, most beneficial way of connecting people with the life-giving force within them. Every one of my students has found success in their ability to channel Reiki energy. I consider Reiki mastership to be an essential prerequisite for modern Shamanic work.

Liz Franzo - Usui Reiki Master Healer
Intuitive card readings, crystal singing bowls, and shamanism have always peaked my personal interest. I come from a Catholic background and wanted to be able to carry my faith with me onto any path I followed. A Reiki master apprenticeship seemed like the best umbrella under which to explore the things that excited me most.
I got more than I bargained for by studying Reiki with Shannon. She has helped me access and understand spiritual aspects of myself that I would have never thought possible.
Before learning about the nature of energy and energetic healing I was often troubled by the profound psychic coincidences that occurred in my life. Now I say bring them on because I can see the positive connections they make.
I love being a Reiki Master not only because of the balance it brings to my life; I enjoy practicing Reiki because of the peace I see it bring to others every time I give a Reiki session.
Smoochy says Liz is an Usui Reiki Master with a Punk Rock Soul.
