Since Laurie learned Chi Gong in 2005, she has become aware of the power and influence of energy. She is currently a Reiki Master/Practitioner (RM) and a Healing Touch Certified Practitioner. (HTCP) Because she is so fascinated by sound, she is also certified in Sound Healing with Himalayan Chakra Singing Bowls.

In a 2017, during a yearlong class, Laurie learned to meditate and develop her intuitive & energetic abilities.  She offers intuitive readings, healings and energy work.  During a reading, she uses spiritual sight, knowing, hearing, and feeling to gather information from your own spirit to share with you. Readings include:  A Rose Reading, 7 Layer Aura Reading and Past Lives.  For more information, visit Healing Therapies.

Art and creating has always been a part of her.  Every day, she creates, always working on a project or technique in calligraphy, paste paper, tea folding, rubber stamping, creating greeting cards and mosaics.  View the Greeting Card Gallery for her latest creations.

Laurie has been able to continue her art exploration with an introduction to Zentangle in 2014.  In 2016, she became a CZT (Certified Zentangle Teacher) and she strives to teach this extraordinary art form to people in all age groups; young and old alike for it requires no previous art experience.  Feel free to check the Events page for classes or view the Zentangle Gallery.

Laurie’s work with mosaics using natural stones, shells, recycled glass and stain glass, gives birth to wonderful mandalas.  Mirrors, pots, garden stones, and animals continue to come forth, as she explores, creates and experiments.  Take a peek in the Mosaic Gallery.
