Her multinational upbringing has also given her the ability to connect well with her clients and students, regardless of their background and circumstances.


Coming Full Circle

Germaine’s spiritual and healing journey began at age 21, when, in an intense spiritual experience, she first experienced the Universe’s unconditional love, peace and joy. Shortly after this powerful event, she trained under a spiritual mentor who guided and inspired her development for the next two decades. Germaine also began a daily practice of Zen meditation at age 25 which she continues to this day.

Germaine previously worked as a journalist in Asian countries undergoing major transitions for 18 years. She relocated to Ottawa as she wound down her journalism career and transitioned to the next phase of her life. In Ottawa, she re-encountered that same strong and unconditional loving energy, which she had encountered at age 21. However, this time she found it through Reiki – which transformed her life significantly for the better. She has since devoted herself to offering this energy of unconditional love, balance, peace and joy to others through her Reiki healing sessions and Reiki classes.
