HEALING RHYTHMS: The purpose of this class is for the attendee to let go, relax and to receive healing in a safe place through a Rhythmic Healing Circle.
Healing Rhythms is an evening where participants can explore, experience and journey to incredible heights with sound accompanied by a drum. Healing Rhythms is not a traditional drum circle, it is an evening where participants join together through intention, guidance and sound to receive and offer healing through the drum. Each circle combines partnered exercises, solo experiences and connections to spirit in the form of healing.
Healing Rhythms is originated by Al Romao and is Shamanic in its structure but no Shamanic experience is required, all levels of experience in drumming and journeying are welcome.
Please Bring: A Drum, a bottle of water, and most of all…..an open mind
Average cost is $15.00 per person for a 75 minute experience.
DRUM CIRCLES: Remo style of Health Rhythms. Come experience the power of the drum to relax, energize and heal.
A hand drum has the ability to create states of euphoria, promote play, release anger, pain or stress as well as to promote feelings of community, unity and well being.
Drums are used with Veterans with PTSD, "At-risk" adolescents, in corporate settings, with substance abusers, for a variety of mental illnesses, Alzheimer's patients, Parkinson's patients, stroke victims, cancer patients, and autistic children.1

REIKI: The word Reiki is made
of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher
Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually
"spiritually guided life force energy." A treatment/session feels like a
wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the
whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial
effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and
well being. Many recipients have reported miraculous healing results. As a Reiki Master, I am one of God's conduits for healing.
I offer personal Reiki sessions which typically last an hour.
The cost for a session is $60.00 at my Toms River location. I can come to you for $75.00.

SHAMANIC HEALING: As a Shamanic Practitioner, I become a hollow bone in which healing from Spirit flows through me to the client. After a divination and talk with a client, different modalities may be used such as the drumming, rattling, Limpia, various sound healing instruments, chanting or song to help with the healing process. The healing occurs on a deep spiritual level with the help of Spirit and guides. This practice has been done by a Shaman since prehistoric times. Many shamans have practiced and still do, on every continent. A typical session lasts anywhere from 90 minutes to 180 minutes.
The cost for a session is $125.00.
As a Shamanic Practitioner, I offer house, land and business blessings using Spirit to guide me as to what is necessary for a particular location, be it to restore balance and harmony to the property through the removal of old energy, or to free lost or confused spirits. These typically last 2 to 3 hours and typically includes a variety of ceremonies and rituals meant to honor the property.
The following rituals/ceremonies are all performed in a prayerful manner often accompanied by song or sacred movement:
Smudging, which uses the burning of sacred herbs, like sage for example, to clear the old energy of the space and cleanse the air.
Aspersion and Limpia which utilize sacred Florida water and sacred plants to release unnecessary energy which has accumulated in the space.
Rattling, which further clears stagnant or stuck energies of the land.
Despacho ceremony which uses a sacred bundle to honor the land, Mother Earth and the ancestors. It is often the responsibility of the land or house owner releases or buries on the land after 24 hours to close this ritual.
Drumming ritual utilizing the Medicine wheel again to honor the land in order to acknowledge the connection of the space with the directions and further connect with Spirit.
Connection to the spirit of the space, here is where I get any messages from the space. The land/house could be in need a final healing or want to tell the owners something. I comply with the space spirit and complete what is necessary before finishing the entire sacred process.
The cost for this runs between $150.00 and $250.00 depending on the size and location of your house/property.
MINDFULNESS: Mindfulness is paying attention to the here and now (present moment) with acceptance and non-judgment, kindness and curiosity.
I offer individual and group sessions/classes. They can be one time introductory classes or series of classes, again four or six week sessions once a week work well.
All classes offer practical hands on experiences as well as a bit of scientific documentation and background.
The cost starts at $20.00-$25.00 per person for an hour with discounts given on series or group classes.
I will come to you but know there will be a fee for tolls and gas.
I also offer teacher training for classroom use. The best practice is your individual practice as that filters down to everyone you interact with.
