Our Reiki and Dreams session will be lead by Gerette and Nancy of Central Vermont Reiki.
Gerette Buglion has been a student of archetypal dream work for over 20 years. Her journey with Reiki has been infused with dreams from the very beginning. A dream of touching a running deer awakened a curiosity about this energy in her hands and led her to Nancy Mosher, first as her teacher and also as her partner at Central Vermont Reiki in Montpelier. As a Reiki
practitioner and newly trained teacher, a long time educator and a writer, she is delighted beyond measure to be joining Kelly’s dynamic retreat team.

Nancy Mosher has been practicing Reiki since 2009 and teaching since 2011. She has also been involved in the practice of archetypal dream work for many years. She began to notice the synergy between the two modalities at dream retreats, where people receiving Reiki seemed to open to the unique message of their dreams in a more embodied and receptive way. With Gerette, she has been leading retreats for Reiki practitioners, exploring how Reiki helps lift the veil between our conscious lives and the wisdom and spiritual guidance manifested through our dreams. Nancy is also a leadership coach and consultant, and a former health care provider.

Kelly McDermott-Burns of HeartSong Reiki, Stockbridge, VT, is a long time Reiki “networker”. She is dedicated to bringing women together through the beauty of Reiki to support each other, share experiences, and heal in a loving environment. For more about Kelly follow this link. HeartSong Reiki
