Iya Nia Jones at the time I started my classes; workshops and internship have guided and taught me from 1990-1999. Today she is known as Iya Nia Jones-Morgan. She was the first one outside of my father's guidance that enlightened me with a traditional and alternative method to healing and living. She taught me and many others that walked in The Brooklyn Healing Arts Center; Ayurveda, Chinese Oriental Medicine and Acupressure, Herbology, Tree of Life, meditation and visualization. In addition; I learned various breath work techniques from different cultures, cosmology, spiritual development and more. Nia Jones-Morgan also encouraged me to seek knowledge where I needed to gain powerful growth, understanding and wisdom.
I thank you Iya Nia for your love, effort, support and guidance. You will consistently have a burning light in my heart. May you always be lifted by the Divine Light and Creator. Ashe'
Dr. Robin Lechner was my second teacher in Reiki. I obtained Reiki II and Advance level. She was a delightful Reiki Master teacher, a gentle, kind and compassionate person. Her ability to get her students to trust is powerful. I learned so much from her, one thing I have kept with me that she taught her students and that was "Exceptions lead to disappointments, Except nothing, and you gain everything" Thank you master teacher.
