Hello, I'm glad you stopped by to visit Reiki 4 Peaceful Heart. I’m Barbara Church. I am a social worker and Reiki practitioner / master teacher. I received a Master of Social Work from Arizona State University. As a social worker I worked with clients in various life stages ranging from birth to end of life and people facing a variety of challenges including addictions and domestic violence. After witnessing the gentle but powerful healing of Reiki, I became a certified Usui Reiki Master Teacher & a Karuna Reiki® Master Teacher.
Years of experiencing Reiki first hand, and observing healing transformations in others made me more dedicated and passionate about Reiki's role in health and wellness. My desire to gain a greater understanding of the Reiki energy, and to develop my ability to be a more effective practitioner and teacher inspired me to further my Reiki training.

I am honored to have learned Jikiden Reiki Shoden & Okuden with Frank Arjava Petter. Jikiden Reiki is a Japanese form of Reiki in its original beauty, effectiveness and simplicity.

Jikiden means "Directly Handed Down" and passes on without alteration the original Reiki methods. Jikiden Reiki is closely aligned with the Reiki Gokai (Precepts) for Health and Happiness authored by Mikao Usui, and its center is the Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai or Jikiden Reiki Institute in Kyoto, Japan.
I have a special interest in neuroscience, and how diet, exercise, meditation and Reiki help to heal and improve our brain health. As a practitioner and teacher with eight years experience, I love the opportunity to explain Reiki's role in integrating complementary, alternative and conventional therapies to achieve optimal health. I am dedicated to teaching Reiki and I enjoy assisting others in discovering how it can help them to heal mind, body and spirit.
Over the last few years I’ve been asked what I do. I’ve finally came up with the simple & short answer, I help people feel good! Why? Because I'm passionate about helping others maintain or restore themselves to a state of well-being & calm.
Research continues to show us that being in a state of well-being, as opposed to stressed, helps to strengthen the immune system. Reiki helps us become an involved member of our health care team. It doesn’t replace medical or psychological treatments but it does support and complement other treatments and enables us to actively participate in our own heath care.

Reiki, aromatherapy, and meditation are wonderful healing tools that help us rest, restore, and heal. If you have any questions about the many ways energy modalities can assist you, please feel free to contact me. (© image)
(HSP or empathic? Please feel free to contact me regarding Reiki, aromatherapy, and other helpful energy tools.)
Yes, I also teach Reiki classes. I began teaching Reiki in 2009. I am a member of the International Association of Reiki Professionals and I regularly teach Reiki classes including “Reiki Kids."
One of my favorite parts of my work is having the opportunity to officiate weddings and commitment ceremonies. It is always a blessing.
The Reiki Principles are the road map and instructions we use to travel our Reiki path. As such they are the center of our teaching and are incorporated throughout my classes. Students have the opportunity to explore the meaning of the principles, and how they transform and heal our daily lives.
My goal as a teacher is for all students to feel comfortable continuing daily self-treatment at home and to begin their personal Reiki experience at a fun & gentle pace that allows the learning experience to unfold and expand like the Reiki energy. My philosophy is Reiki One is the cornerstone. It is where a student's Reiki practice begins to germinate, sprout and flourish. Reiki One the key that unlocks the door to the Reiki adventure.
Because Reiki One is the foundation of Reiki training, I offer a comprehensive Reiki One class that includes education, practice, fun activities, ample opportunities for questions, answers discussion, and tons of encouragement and support. Reiki is a wonderful adventure. I believe students deserve time and attention to joyfully begin their Reiki journey with confidence.
Daily self-treatments and meditation are an important part of a solid Reiki practice. Reiki is a lovely way to add a contemplative meditation practice to your day. Beginning with Reiki One, I teach students the value and importance of embracing Reiki as a daily self-healing practice, and how to benefit from using Reiki as a daily contemplative practice.
Many people find the daily self-healing practice and skills taught in Reiki One are perfect for their goals. Others choose to continue to develop additional skills and knowledge to advance their training. Regardless of the desired outcome, my foundation class is designed to offer a solid knowledge and skill base for every student.
Reiki Kids? Just think how you would have benefited as a child if someone provided you with the knowledge & understanding of the energy that flows into & around us. Kids love Reiki & I love teaching children about the subtle energy called Reiki.
I often teach classes with highly qualified co-teachers. Because we firmly believe in the importance of continued support for students & the importance of a strong, cooperative & collaborative Reiki community, we offer ongoing learning & social activities for our students.
Want to learn more about my classes? Class fees & schedules can be found on this website on the the class page. You can also call me at (928) 853-1382.
Back to community, collaboration & cooperation, I believe quality health care should be available for everyone. To do my part, I offer community Reiki shares. The shares are made possible with the help of other Reiki practitioners & master teachers.
Proving once again that when we work together we can accomplish so much more than when we work alone. ♥ (© image)
I also collaborate with other local Reiki professionals to provide free Reiki services for community members several times during the year.
Throughout my life I have known and loved many family members & friends who served in the armed forces, especially, the love of my life, my husband, a USMC Vietnam Veteran & one of our “kids," a U.S. Army Pilot & Iraq Veteran with 14 years of military service. I am passionate about supporting veterans. If you have served or have a loved one who has served or is currently serving, please feel free to contact me for Reiki.
Yes, I am a member of Honor-a-Veteran.org, a member of the International Association of Reiki Professionals.
