VERONIQUE FREDE

Reiki Teacher / Practitioner

Background

As a third-generation practitioner from a French lineage of traditional healers called "coupeurs de feu", my journey started at a young age, with my grandmother, who was my first teacher in the mysteries of life. The region where I grew-up in the South of France is called Occitania. It is a region of forests, winds and stone, where natural medicine has been recognized and practiced for a very long time. 

I met my husband in Asia where we lived for several years. Traveling around Asia deepened my interest in History, Religions, Eastern philosophy, Asian arts and cultures. I connected with my roots and capacity as a healer through my children, whom special needs came as special gifts. My journey with Reiki officially started in 2008. 

Moonstone Sanctuary was founded in 2012 when I started to practice Reiki professionally. 

PRACTICE | LINEAGE

Practice

The foundation of my practice is Reiki, a Japanese spiritual healing system that originated in Japan in the 1900s. It combines meditations, breath-work, sound, prayers and hands-on healing. It uses intuitive guidance and an understanding of the human energy anatomy. Reiki has become to me a way of life. My practice also incorporates crystals depending on the needs.

Reiki Lineage

My lineage includes both the Japanese and Western lineages as my training was completed in the traditional Japanese system of Reiki as well as in its Western modern form. I studied with William Rand, President of the International Center for Reiki Training (ICRT) as well as with Frank Arjava Petter and Tadao Yamaguchi while in Japan.  I am currently a student of Frans Stiene, co-founder of the International House of Reiki (IHR). 

 

My Japanese lineage is Usui Reiki Ryoho: Usui Mikao (founder of Usui Reiki Ryoho and Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai)/KanichiTaketomi (3rd President of Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai)/Koyama Kimko (6th President of Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai)/Doi Hiroshi (Member of Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai)/Frans Stiene (IHR)/Veronique Frede

TRAINING | SCOPE OF WORK

Training

I keep up diligently with my own practice and training which led me to travel through the US, Europe and Japan where the practice of Reiki originates from. I believe in continuing education, not just for my own well-being and personal development but also to better support others.
