Michèle E. Denis, founder of the Westcoast Reiki Centre, is passionate about uncovering the ways in which we each come to engage with our transcendent Self. For Michele, the Path of Reiki and of Yoga have been her route to personal discovery, growth and healing. A Reiki teacher for over 20 years, Michèle created the Westcoast Reiki Centre in 2008 out of a desire to provide ongoing support and learning to those who studied with her. Over the years the Centre has grown into a vibrant community of teachers, practitioners and friends. In 2010 she reconnected to her earlier love of Vedic philosophy and meditation, leading her to complete her 500hr as a Yoga Therapy Instructor. Recognizing the need for many of us to calm our nervous system and still our minds, Michèle weaves together the quiet practices of Reiki with Meditation, Yin and Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra. When not in Vancouver, Michèle can be found at her Gulf island home or “sitting” in the Sanctuary at Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York.

The Director of the Westcoast Reiki Centre, Karen McCullough, is a graduate from Langara College’s three year Integrative Energy Healing Program, and holds certification in Usui Reiki, Karuna Reiki, Tibetan Reiki, Yoganidra, Energetic Dialogue, Anatomy and Reflexology.
Karen’s primary desire is to facilitate a path to wellness using energy based treatment therapies that stimulate the body’s own natural resources for healing. Bridging eastern and western healing science, the therapies she uses are designed to complement conventional approaches to health care. She combines energetic therapy with acupressure, movement, and dialogue to tailor a unique session for each of her clients.
Karen’s personal journey to healing began when her father was ill and conventional medicine was unable to provide him with comfort. She was surprised at how effective “simple” techniques like grounding and guided visualization were at providing moments of relief.
“I believe that awareness is the key. If we are able to see our stories, our pain, our perceived limitations, our sorrow…just see them, acknowledge them, allow them space to be, they often disappear. Sometimes we need help in finding this awareness.”

For over twenty years, I have assisted clients, as well as other healers, to facilitate positive shifts in body, mind and soul, balancing vibrational frequencies to reduce disease, discomfort, and dysfunction.
In 1997 I was initiated as an Usui Reiki Master/Teacher. I continue to study alternative medicine, energy & spiritual healing, including Reiki, Crystal Singing Bowls, Sound & Color Therapy, Crystals, Aromatherapy, and other Intuitive & Intention based subtle energy healing techniques.
I enjoy my role as a channel helping to shift the frequency of the planet, one soul at a time.
In my personal journey to find balance & harmony, I have walked the El Camino de Santiago, a centuries old spiritual pilgrimage in Southern Spain, three times, each time experiencing different life-changing miracles & profound personal growth.
May all of our journey's be filled with abundant peace, love, joy, harmony, forgiveness & gratitude!

I have been practicing Reiki since 2012. My journey started in London, England where I learned Reiki level 1 and 2 in the traditional Usui way.
From day one, I felt such a positive change within my mind. Then my level of energy grew and I began to enjoy being in this world.
In June 2014, I moved to Vancouver, and joined the Westcoast Reiki Centre where I met Master Karen McCullough. I did Reiki level 3 in February 2015 and became a Master/Teacher in April 2016.

My desire is to help improve our spiritual, mental, physical, and emotional competencies. Building these competencies helps us to identify our own strengths, self control, self confidence and allows us to connect with ourselves, families, and friends at a deeper level.
For over 15 years I have assisted clients, ranging in age from children to adults, to improve their quality of life by helping them find peace and harmony.
In February 2013 I was initiated as an Usui Reiki Practitioner and in November 2014 as an Usui Reiki Master. I provide counselling and spiritual Reiki guidance. Reiki has assisted me to develop further, connecting more deeply, more, and confidently with the Universal aspect of myself. I am passionate about channeling Reiki to help with decrease trauma symptoms, stress and heal the body, mind, and spirit. I am very grateful and I sincerely hope to share this with as many people as possible.
I have been certified as a registered Psychologist in Mexico since 2004, and am currently working towards becoming a registered Psychologist in BC. I have a compassionate and caring bedside manner with a deep understanding of holistic health. I am bilingual, speaking both Spanish and English fluently with an understanding of holistic health, mind-body connection, humanity & spirituality.
Together we can activate our essence and change our lives, to heal ourselves, our families, Mother Earth, and create vibrant health, bliss and love in every area of our lives.

Margo believes that chronic stress sets the stage for later disease ….. that we in urban settings are bombarded daily with physical, emotional, and electronic stress; and that the key to managing and surviving all that stress is deep relaxation—the doorway to prevention, healing, and recovery.

I am an Usui Reiki Master & Teacher.
My journey with Reiki began when I was coaching clients to achieve their goals. I wanted to learn more about my intuition so that I could better serve my clients. My teacher, Michèle Denis, suggested I learn more about the simple and elegant Japanese technique of Reiki and the rest is history.
I received my Master & Teacher levels in February 2008 and have been working with the energy for myself since then. I feel the calling to take the next step and help others learn more about how they can help themselves be more of who they are and learn how to reduce their own stress and anxiety using Reiki.
I am also trained in a coaching technique called Motivational Interviewing (MI), which helps people move through their ambivalence to achieve their goals. In combination with Reiki, MI can be a very useful tool to create the change you want in your life.

Patrick has been practicing Reiki for 8 years in the Tibetan Usui system.
He recently completed training with William Lee Rand and is a certified Usui Holy Fire II Reiki Master.
He has certification in Kundalini Reiki and has studied practical Reiki Magic techniques.
Patrick has practiced Hermetics since 2010 and believes through intention we are co-
creators of the universe. Patrick holds a degree in Social Anthropology, and has diplomas in
Culinary and Pastry Arts.
Upon returning from Thailand and South Korea where Patrick taught English as a Second
Language, he was introduced to Reiki by his Mother who is a Reiki Master and Shamanic
healer. A sceptic at first, Patrick quickly learned the tremendous healing value of Reiki
energy and pursued his level 1 in 2010.
Patrick continues working with and learning from Reiki energy while pursuing a career in the culinary arts.
Embracing Reiki has helped Patrick open up to the infinite universal energy of love.
It has acted as a major supporting factor throughout his high stress career as a professional cook.
Patrick believes strongly in Reiki’s ability to manage fear, anxiety and the chatter of doubt
that works its way into our daily consciousness.
With this in mind, Patrick is interested in the evolution of Reiki and the creative ways that we can integrate it into our everyday lives.
People are often attracted to energy healing during times of crisis and Patrick wants to
remind us that it can be a fun supplement to a healthy happy life, while remaining a powerful
tool during times of disintegration and lack.
“Reiki has helped me to feel secure in my vulnerability, clearing barriers to personal growth.
It is a beautifully supportive energy that I feel honoured to be able to share with others.”
