DAWN BRITLAND

RMT / sound healing

 

I was first introduced to Reiki nine years ago after a pretty severe injury.  I could not believe how amazing the treatment was and immediately knew this was something I not only wanted to do but that I had to do.  I received my Reiki I certification and started to share it with friends in family mostly.  A few years later while bringing my Dad for a Chemo treatment I met a wonderful woman who was volunteering her time to give Reiki to patients and family members.  The universe was giving me a sign and I knew I had to get back to my Reiki practice. 

Well, life had a few more curve balls for me.  I lost my Dad and was in a horrible accident in the same year.  Not only was I coping with grief I began to have a lot of anxiety.   When the pandemic started in 2020 I had even more anxiety and decided I wanted to find a holistic way to cope. I  found Light House and, in the process, found myself again.  I decided it  was time to continue my Reiki training and fulfill my dream that began 9 years ago. 

I am now a certified Reiki Master Teacher, and I am so excited and look forward to sharing love, light, and lots of healing energy with you all.

JENNIFER DOYLE

YOGA INSTRUCTOR

 

I started practicing yoga 20 years ago because as a child I was a dancer but life circumstances took me off that path. As a teenager, in my endless quest to get fit, I took a yoga class and instantly fell in love with the practice bc it reminded me of everything I loved and missed about dancing; the movements, the stretching, and the mind/body connection.
Over the years my practice has saved my sanity more times than I could possibly count and I’m forever grateful for the opportunity to practice (and now share) that practice.

I am a certified Kripalu Yoga teacher focused on supporting students in listening to their breath and body in their personal practice. My own journey in health and wellness began as a student in Public Health at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

I practice yoga and meditation as a way to maintain this balance and to remain present in each moment. I hold a Bachelors of Science in Public Health and a Masters in Education. I am a Reiki Certified energy healer and have also studied energy medicine with Lisa Murphy at the Fairhaven Healing Arts Center. In energy medicine sessions, I integrate sound healing with reiki energy to restore wellbeing. I am a Radiant Child Approved children’s yoga teacher trained by Shakta Kaur Khalsa.
