Josie has practiced Reiki since 1992 and studied healing and spirituality for decades. She has trained from the deserts to the mountains to the sea, weaving the wisdom of the natural world with profound regard for divine law and grace.
Josie is a passionate advocate of prayer and faith and believes that the path of healing always leads to the sacred. She is a faithful follower of Caroline Myss, most inspired by her teaching that “All of life is God in disguise.” Through Caroline, she has worked with Julie Flaherty and studied Sacred Contracts and other mystical teachings. She has also studied with Jungian Center for the Spiritual Sciences, The Assisi Institute, and Center for Applied Jungian Studies.
Josie is trained and experienced in holy listening, deep reflection, and discernment and versed in the wisdom teachings of many traditions. She worked for a decade in the mental health field, including emergency crisis counseling for domestic violence victims and addiction and recovery. Josie is a Certified Archetypal Consultant through Caroline Myss’ CMED program, a Spiritual Director, an Advanced Reiki Practitioner, a Licensed Massage Therapist, and a Certified End-of-Life Doula. She has participated in and facilitated women’s healing circles for fourteen years and has a daily practice of contemplation, prayer, spiritual reading, and, always, gratitude. Josie is a runner and a writer and lives a mostly quiet life of devotion in a lakeside cottage in Pennsylvania with three dogs and a pony.
