Lyn Drathring - Daily Harmony Lifeways

Genre: Healing Arts

Reiki Master, Certified Tai Chi Instructor, Creative Living ‘Pro’

My life has led me along many pathways, some chosen, some not.  The services I provide are things that I practice myself to creatively craft a life of harmony, health, balance and joy. And, because, well…life happens, I integrate many of these anchoring practices on a daily basis.  

I sincerely believe that it takes mindful, intentional practice of regularly aligning our energies of mind, body, spirit and purpose to live a creative and fulfilled life.

For me, that comes from my faith and a regular practice of Tai Chi, Reiki, time in nature and feeding my soul through the arts, music and the written word. And, of course, some of my best moments in life are with my family and friends.  

The Creative Healing Studio has insights and support to help you connect to your best self and to live a creative, fulfilled life. In this fast paced, technological world, it is essential to give ourselves the gift of time and self care.  We do this not only for ourselves, but for those we love and to have the energy and insight to lead the best life we can.
