Stay tuned for upcoming events! 


Lotus Fire Empowerment Circle

Lotus Fire Empowerment Circle, facilitated by Mandy (Miria), is an open spiritual and empowerment support circle for people of any path looking for fellowship, fun, and spiritual support in a safe and nurturing environment! The Empowerment Circle meets on the 1st Wednesday of each month – not including holidays. Our focus for 2021 will be “Spirituality in Everyday Lives”, by engaging with community and nature in various events and activities.

As a reminder, 6:00 – 6:30 p.m. is our ‘meet and greet’ time, to get to know each other and de-stress a little from our days. The gatherings begin promptly at 6:30 and conclude at 8:00 p.m. The Empowerment Circle may be hosting some workshops online and others in-person due to COVID restrictions; please keep an eye out here or on our Facebook page for locations!

Would you like to feel balanced and more at peace with yourself? Learn how to listen to your Self and balance your needs with Reiki.

Reiki is the healing aspect of universal energy, channeled to assist the body in becoming balanced and healthy. Reiki will align the body’s ki (life force) to promote emotional, energetic, and spiritual balance. Reiki I is an introductory class to learn how to alleviate stress and boost our immune systems through self-healing. We will learn the history of Reiki, a meditation practice, and practical applications for healthier living. Please wait at least 21 days before enrolling in level II, wear comfortable clothing, and be prepared to have some fun while learning!


Reiki level 2
UFM Solar Addition
Reiki level 1 is a prerequisite for this class.
Each date listed is a stand-alone class – this is the same class with different options for dates (future dates will be posted on the UFM page when schedules are updated).
Each class is $67.00 per person; payable through UFM.
January 9, 2021; 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
February 6, 2021; 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
March 6, 2021; 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
April 3, 2021; 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Reiki Level II is an in-depth class to build on our lessons from Reiki Level I, furthering our understanding of channeling Energy to facilitate healing in the Self and others. In this class, we will learn how to facilitate healing and promote balance with and in others. We will also learn new meditations to deepen our understanding of Reiki practices and further our practice of self care. Reiki Level 1 is a pre-requisite to this class; if you have not already taken Level 1 with me, please email me at lotusfirewellness@yahoo.com and we can discuss some options. 🙂 To honor each person’s process and how he / she integrates energy work with his / her Self, I generally wait at least 21 days between Reiki Level I and Reiki Level II as well.
(Reiki II is presented in two parts, depending on your personal level of involvement. The second portion of the class can be scheduled through Mandy [Miria] if you would like to become certified.)
