What brought me to this work?:Spiritual Niagara was born based on a dream that I had. I was wondering about how I could find all the Spiritual Services in Niagara and I knew that I was not the only one looking for these services. My dream told me that I needed to let people know about these services. I began by teaching myself how to set up a website and took some classes in how to develop a site.
Spiritual Niagara was launched in June 2009. My own journey has included training as a Reiki practitioner, Level 2, with Susan Savannah, Meditation tele-classes with Kay Proudfoot and the 6 month Meditation course with the Willpower Institute in Niagara Falls. I am an Employment Consultant with Niagara College and have been for over 28 years. I have assisted many people to connect with their dreams.
In 2012 I had surgery on my spine to remove a cyst from my spinal cord. Since that time I have had a cerebrospinal fluid leak in my back which doctors are having a hard time locating. As a result of this csf leak I have to spend the majority of my time lying down. I have had to leave my position as an employment counsellor. However I am still hopeful that I will be able to heal this condition and return to normal activities. I do continue to operate the Spiritual Niagara website but I now have the help of a web developer and several others in the operation of the business.
What services do I offer?:
Spiritual Niagara offers the opportunity for people to connect with the Spiritual Services in their community concentrating on the Niagara Region. It is the goal of Spiritual Niagara to help you make that connection that ultimately will result in your connecting to your true self thus making your life more joyful.Spiritual Niagara is also a venue for business owners to identify themselves and to better help you choose the connection that feels right to you. It also offers the opportunity for businesses to connect with other businesses. I see Spiritual Niagara as a connector which I believe will continue to evolve. I remain open to ideas to determine how it can best serve the Spiritual community.In January 2016 I took over the operation of the Niagara Healers website. This website also offers a directory of Holistic Health Professionals located in the Niagara Region. I am excited to take on this new project and continue to see the growth of holistic services in Niagara
What philosophy do I live by?:Live and let live.
