Tammy Bray

Yoga, Qigong & Meditation Teacher
Reiki Master

Exploring is a central theme to my life.  It fills my tapestry with many beautiful colors and it is part of my balance in life.  For me, whether my interest bubbles up from the inside or something on the “outside” is intriguing, it’s all one and the same as it speaks from my Soul.  I feel the nudge, “go ahead, see what it’s about”.

 

Through my explorations, threads are provided that weave my experiences through my life. My tapestry includes lover of nature, dancer, drummer, gardener, sojourner, yoga student/teacher, spiritual companion, therapist/counselor, traveler, Reiki master, healer, bringer of Laughter and light-heartedness, soul artist, cultural explorer, Qigong teacher/practitioner and so much more.

Heather's journey into the world of healing began over 15 years ago with a serendipitous encounter with Reiki. However, it was the significant loss of her father in 2017 that triggered a profound transformation in her journey.
