About Me

 I am a Chartered Herbalist Dip and I have been using alternative therapies and self healing/growth practices for more than 40 years. I have more than 20 years of experience as a Reiki Master Teacher, an Energy Healing Teacher and Intuitive Healing Teacher and have been practicing these and many more related modalities. Over this time I have also developed many techniques to help enhance the Reiki experience for you to use in your own holistic healing practice.  
     Reiki/Energy Healing is actually a ancient practice that is part of our makeup, a lost/long forgotten rite!! Everyone has the ability to be an energy healer, the process just needs to be reawakened within you!! Since an awareness shift that began its accelerated course almost 20 years ago, there are a great many more people that have become awakened and open to the availability of the universal healing energy that has always been available to us. A familiarity echoes in our souls. It is something we 'know' we need to do. It is time to expand the healing light within, time to heal ourselves and time to share as much information about using these available healing energies so that we can use this much needed light to heal this world and every being within it. I am committed to making these classes affordable. All workshops are now priced accordingly.

(I have had students from The gulf islands, Courtnay/Comox Port Alberni, Qualicum, Parksville, Nanaimo, Ladysmith, Duncan and Victoria on beautiful Vancouver Island , British Columbia , Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and the maritimes as well as India, England and The USA...)

I remember how I got here. I remember the moment my soul entered the cells of a new human creation. I have started writing a book about that... I began a healing path many years ago and he since learned about and developed a NEW higher level of Energy Healing which I've started teaching in 2016. I also have begun teaching Reiki Energy ADVANCED Classes, with information never before shared...

My Past
I the 70's I began a journey into Alternative Therapies and Shamanism,  I met native elder Mrs. Jebb from the Cree nation from whom I received the name Copper Raven. I have been studying, researching, practicing, developing and creating treatments and workshops and have 
since the 70's and into the 90's and the 2000's have studied such modalities as Reiki, Stone and Tarot Readings, Jade Stone Massage, Rattan Bamboo Massage, Relaxation Massage, Reflexology, Hawaiian Huna, Japanese Hot Stone Massage, Ancient Teachings, Hypnotherapy, Acupressure, Mom and Me Exercise Teacher, Weight Loss for Women, Hatha Yoga, Laughter Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Baby & Toddler Yoga, LomiLomi Massage, Chair Massage, Bora Bora Deep Blue Massage etc, etc,etc. MANY MANY MANy healing modalities. 

In 1997 I began my own business,the name I chose was Island Reiki and Relaxation Center.  I have since learned and now practice so many different things that in 2008,  I decided to rename my business... Helping Healing Hands, to encompass all the many things that I was capable of doing! I also started training dogs in the early 70's. In the late 80's and early 90's I bred Siberian Huskies. All of the puppies from each litter were housebroken and trained to obey basic commands before they left their mom to go to their new homes. I have since had Australian Cattle Dogs, what a joy!

In November of 2010 I took a hiatus... WHY?? ...to learn more about my modalities and then in June of 2013 I reopened Helping Healing Hands and have a store front, teach healing modalities, creating art and various Diplomas and Certificates.

I am also an INFJ personality, which is rare...found in about 1% of the population...the IN stands for INTUITIVE.

After periods of severe illness, I began to experience what I now know  offering people the space and ability to self heal!When I was 13 years old I became very ill with what the doctor called the Asian flu. I was delirious and hallucinated having an extremely high fever. And another time in my life that this had happened to me, when I was only 7 years old and had come down with the chicken pox. Though I didn't realize at the time what was happening to me I came to realize that these severe illnesses heightened my senses and presented me with 'special' gifts....Clairsentience and Clairaudience.

Clairsentience - Psychic Sensing

Experiencing other realities or entities through the sense of touch:

- A tickling sensation on the body when connection with spirit. This usually includes the face, hands, neck.

- Hairs on the back of the neck standing on end when a spirit touches you.

- A sensation on the left side of the face when talking with spirit as energy enters through the left side of the body (right brain) and exists through the right.

- Pressure on the crown or other chakra

- Sometimes an actually blow is felt to the body

- a cool breeze

- spirit scents - floral and other fragrances

Clairaudience is receiving messages in thought form from another frequency or realm. I have contact with angels...
