Reiki is a gentle, hands on healing practice that originated in Japan in the early 1900’s. Reiki enhances well being and often can reduce negativity and stress.
Candida has been a Reiki practitioner for over 20 years, and has been grateful for the power of Reiki helping family members - in her experience, children in particular are very sensitive and responsive.
Candida completed her certification as a Reiki Master and teacher in November 2015. She provides individual treatments and also teaches Reiki workshops.
Contact Candida directly for more information on a Reiki session or to register for a class.
Wedding Officiant | Life Celebrant
Over 10 years ago, Candida was invited by a friend to officiate her wedding. For Candida, sharing in and co-creating such a peak experience has been an absolute joy for her. She has now performed over 20 weddings, a non-denominational memorial service, a christening and even a “conscious uncoupling” divorce ceremony. Recently, she was asked to officiate a “wise woman” ceremony to celebrate a friend’s 70th birthday.
Candida loves to work with couples to create a meaningful wedding or ritual that expresses their uniqueness. She is licensed in the District of Columbia as a wedding officiant.
