What our Students say

  • This class had a lot of coooool information. This is a great introductory class. So glad I decided to take it! I learned Cleansing, Meridians, how to Find Chakras. I love that there is a place like this where I can learn about things I may not typically look for locally.

    Nicole Kimiko
  • I liked that you could feel Connie’s deepest sincerity in giving the rites. I felt a real part of the ceremony and not just like an observer. There was real power in the class. I learned that there is more to learn and to be open to new experiences.

    Susan Pendleton
  • I liked the flow of the class. The presentation was great. I learned that I want to take the “whole” course… I liked the sneak peeks of the advanced techniques. As an Intro class… it was well done. I can’t think of a way to improve on what was related.

    Jody L. Blackwell
  • “Stephanie’s class was brilliant! It broadened my understanding of the many aspects of meditation and tools that can be used to aid in meditation. The most important thing I learned was that you can fill a library full of books on the information out there about meditation, self-healing through intention, mantras, etc, and you still probably would not have all the information. Part of this is because meditation is such a powerful yet personal action. I would highly recommend this class to anyone that feels they are not meditating properly but want to learn how to be better at it, or just want to learn more about it. The techniques are very simple and user-friendly.”

    Amber Tate
  • I appreciated Connie’s down-to-earth style and sharing more of her personal stories. I now understand how to set myself apart from other intuitive readers in my area and how to ‘set the mood’ so that clients feel taken care of and are receiving a more authentic reading in person.

    Monica J. Foster
  • I loved the teacher, John Soriano. Loved the technique and it really worked. I did this through independent study- it would have been great to have been in the class but the replay was very good – basics covered very well and all questions answered without it being live. I was totally new to meridians and tapping and found learning about these energy points and the tapping technique to be of great interest. The basic technique seems to come natural as practical reiki did for me. I am interested in learning more.

    Mari J Morrison
  • It was great to receive that one on one attention. As always Alice’s classes are not only informative, but fun as well! I learned that we go through life with not only one guardian, but as we grow older another one will come into your life at the right time to guide you along your path. Alice makes learing fun and she treats you as a friend more than teacher/student.

    Debra J. Hewitt
  • This is the first class that I’ve actually taken with Alice and I loved her energy in the class! I have her book on Practical Reiki and had already started doing distance healing with only intention. This class was awesome! I actually saw the invisible person method and that helped me more in my visualization of the method. I had been doing as though the person were laying down in front of me, but the way shown was much easier to scan!
