“A compassionate heart, a responsive mind, acts of healing – are not born of noise and restlessness but of stillness.” Thomas Merton
Gina is a mother of two, daughter, sister, wife, friend and member of many human circles and circles of wider being, and places these roles on a par in terms of importance with anything else that she does.
She loves gardening, cooking, dancing, love-making, qigong, reiki, yoga, astronomy, astrology, compassionate communication (NVC), meditation, and especially enjoys forgetting which activity is for pleasure, which for work, which for learning, which for conscious evolution and which contributes to the well-being of the whole.
She is, and always has been, deeply interested in restoring the qualities of the feminine principle to a place of honor and power within herself and within the larger culture.
She has had a keen focus on exploring body-based practices for the evolution of consciousness. She has done this as a yoga teacher, yoga therapist, dedicated qigong student, reiki healer, practitioner of mindfulness and somatic meditation, sexual tantra and using dancing as an awareness practice.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is formed from two Japanese words rei and ki meaning universal intelligence (rei) energy (ki). The term is used to describe a system of natural healing that uses the laying on of hands. This healing tradition was founded in Japan by Dr. Makao Usui in the early 20th century.
