I’ve had the privilege of knowing Claudia well, and witnessing up close the strong evolutionary intelligence that she embodies. She is compassionate, curious, and determined to embrace both life and death in their fullness. I believe that learning to celebrate our endings is an essential learning for many of us at this time. I wholeheartedly recommend Claudia’s support in this area.

My patients who are undergoing radiation therapy find Reiki to be a very effective supplementary treatment. The Reiki sessions under the guidance of the warm and caring nature of Claudia have shown a noticeable beneficial effect on the patients. The inner calmness they have thereby gained is an important step towards their cancer survivorship. Thank you, Claudia.
— Jose Barba, MD / Director of Radiation/ Oncology Mountainside Hospital
When in Claudia’s care I feel nurtured and secure. Her awareness and sensitivity to meet my needs are important to me. Claudia’s patience and compassion allows me to open my heart and I feel free to share my innermost private thoughts with her.

Claudia creates an atmosphere where I feel at ease, I am being heard, understood, and nurtured. There is a trust which allows me to open up and I dare share with her - my innermost thoughts and needs. Her caring awareness and guidance have improved and changed my life considerably.

Claudia’s powerful relationship, strong connection, and ease which she merges with nature reflects a beautiful alignment with herself. She is the embodiment of compassion, empathy and understanding. With a wide open heart, she is so easy to talk to, no matter what the subject. I feel like I’ve know her all my life! 
— Olivera
I am a survivor of recurrent cancer and other very serious health issues. I have maintained a very positive attitude throughout the years and still do. However, I am not a robot, but a very normal human being undergoing, at times, the emotional ups and downs of this situation plus the often unavoidable stresses of daily life. And here is where Reiki comes in. I have personally experienced that Reiki restores emotional calmness and, at the same time, reinforces the inner strength one needs to fight the battle against cancer. Claudia’s ever-ready warm smile and gentle touch are well suited to help along the path to healing and to get the most benefit from this type of therapy.

— Brigitta Neu
To be able to relax, unwind through guided meditation by Claudia was a quiet, restful, and refreshing experience. Her soothing delivery allowed me to fully unwind and her positive affirmations resulted in my being relaxed, rejuvenated, and focused on the positive.

About Claudia

Screen Shot 2016-10-04 at 5.46.55 PM.png

I am drawn to the conscious stillness of daily meditation, the indigenous knowledge of nature, the thrill of global social witnessing, scientific offerings, and the respect for community, tribe and ritual. 

This is a beautiful time to be alive - we have a profound opportunity to sustain awareness and co-create in the world. Join me in finding the joy we all deserve!


I imagine that yes is the only living thing.
— E.E. Cummings

I am a guide, an educator, a wise woman. In my life and end of life mentoring, I use  deep listening, Reiki and other healing modalities. I am also an herb and essential oils educator.

The balance between spiritual intuition and science is very interesting to me as the world seems to speed up with technology and climate change.

I believe in creating balance in the body through connection with nature and the precision of our thoughts in contemplation and meditation.

I share my knowledge of nutrition, organic gardening and herbs, sustainability, and foraging with my community. I make my own seasonal herbal tinctures and I dry herbs. This earthly connection has given me vitality, strength, and joy. It continues to refine my intuition.

I've had a somewhat unconventional style of training...

Over the years I studied essential oils for healing, one on one coaching with indigenous shamanic ways, and classical and various schools of yoga and meditation. After 8 years of Reiki as my practice, I became certified in Positive Psychology in 2015.  In 2017, I completed a two year study Timeless Wisdom U.S. Training, in practical healing tools and communicating authentically and transparently in society with a spiritual teacher from Berlin, Thomas Huebl. Some of this training involved working deeply with individual and collective trauma and concepts of how to hold relational space, and seeing the bigger picture in mediation -- in conflict with ourselves and globally. I continue to study with Thomas, learning ways to be present for collective trauma in the world. I support his organization called "The Pocket Project"

I speak Spanish and French and light Greek and I continue to study language. I meditate daily.

Volunteer Reiki work in a local hospital and an end-of-life course, led me to become interested in continuing the sometimes taboo conversation about contemplating end of life at any age.  My book "The Beauty of Living & Dying," (see my web page "The Book") was inspired by my passion to help others to explore the journey towards death in a graceful, peaceful and empowering way.
