From the Heart

Embarking on her own spiritual journey more than 25 years ago, Marci discovered Shamanism as a way of personal healing, which led to her practices of meditation, Reiki, and Tae Kwon-Do. The combination of these spectacular healing arts had such a positive impact in Marci’s life, she was drawn to her current path of sharing them to better the lives of others.
