We have a new energy healer in our San Diego community Maura offers a healing modality that has some similarities to Reiki (Harmonyum), as well as a form of yoga (Shakti Naam) that are not yet widely available. I have been fortunate to have a series of her Harmonyum healing sessions and have been practicing Shakti Naam Yoga with her for several months now. She offers classes in San Diego at Sojourn Healing Collective and also promotes “Living Room Yoga” where you can gather a minimum of three people to practice Kundalini Yoga in the comfort of your own home.
Harmonyum concentrates on the nervous system. The trauma and sadness we experience become stored in the body if not regularly cleared and can lead to disease and depression. Harmonyum healing clears the emotional traumas from the spine and nervous system. To do this, the recipient lies on a massage table, face down, and the work focuses on the spinal column. After a number of sessions, you can expect to experience a building of self-confidence, clarity in your life direction, increased self-awareness, feelings of being uplifted and more happy, more calm, and more optimistic.
Her other practice, Shakti Naam Yoga is a powerful anti-aging and disease-defying yogic practice. Developed in the Himalayas and new to the West, Shakti Naam incorporates seated meditation, standing postures, breathing and movement to open the meridians (energy channels) and remove all blocks in the body. This unique fusion of movement, breath, acupressure, stretching and vocal vibration activates and strengthens the body's self-healing capacities resulting in radiant health, happiness, and vitality.
Maura adds her own personal spin on this practice with a lot of laughter, fun, and dancing during each class. We are so lucky that she has relocated from her native Boston to be here. She has years of expertise as a holistic health practitioner, and I’ve experienced firsthand her effectiveness in promoting healing, happiness and well-being.

If I were asked to comment about my work with Maura, I would say that it was truly an internally as well as externally transformative experience. Maura came to our house as a birthday present from my husband. I told him I wanted to learn more about Feng Shui and had heard about Maura through a friend. What immediately impressed me about Maura was how accessible she made concepts through visual and verbal explanations, that you just can’t find in reading a text book about this amazing philosophy of living. She took us on a tour of our own home, and made me feel like I was being transported to a place I had never been before. It was exciting to see where we could improve the energy in the space and make it work for us. Working with Maura helped us fall in love with our home all over again. She was very proactive helping us to make immediate changes, not just explaining to us what to doubt helping in the moment moving pieces around, de-clutter, and work with objects in own environment to help redirect energy that had been blocked.
“We were very pleased with the changes to our home, which would have been enough for us, but we were interested in how could manifest a deeper connection to our spiritual and innermost selves. The changes happened in the most private of spaces, our bedroom softer and more romantic using pillows and a throw we had in another space in our house. She also encouraged unto fill the space with pictures of us (as a couple) and with plant life, flowers that would symbolize fertility and growth, as we shared with our struggles with infertility. As we had decided to end treatment and move forward without children, my husband took Maura’s advice and bought a beautiful orchid for the bedroom which I came home to find at our my bedside. One thing led to another, and 10 months later our beautiful daughter arrived! To this day, I tell Maura that she was responsible, but she denies being at the scene of the conception!

Maura has been and continues to be a positive and influential force in my life. Her spiritual guidance and profound abilities have had an affect on how I continue to live daily in balance and with clarity. Working with Maura is a key component to my personal health regime and I highly recommend engaging in Maura’s practice. I had the pleasure of meeting Maura at one of her meditation classes. I knew right away I wanted to work with her. I have been happily seeing Maura weekly for two years I am in graduate school with four children and a husband traveling 75% of time. She is my weekly respite from it all! Her healing touch has been instrumental in my life. The advice she gave us regarding kagen water system has gotten all of us healthier and more energized the kids love it! I can truly say I do not think I could have made it through the last two years without Maura’s support and open heart. I highly recommend Maura’s services and insights.

Maura is a powerful healer. She's the best kept secret in San Diego and I hesitate to tell you how good she is because then I might have a harder time booking her, but everyone needs this. I was in a serious accident in January and I have struggled with back pain since. I also struggle with headaches chronically. When I go to Maura for a session, I get immediate relief from these pains and it lasts for days to weeks. The healings affect me on an emotional level, too. I have less anxiety after seeing her. She's also very warm and friendly and I just love to be in her presence. The healing she offers is real and profound and worth every penny and then some.

I just love Maura and can't say enough good things about her! She is a joy to be around, and is radiating positive and healing energy! I have had several sessions with her and always leave feeling blissed out and at a higher frequency. The harmonium sessions are my favorite for relaxation, in just a 30 minute session I feel like I've gotten 12 hours of deep sleep. She is a wonderful healer and overall incredible human being!

Maura is a lifesaver! She worked with us through the stress of buying our oceanfront Victorian on the North Shore and renovating it from a state of the art kitchen to Oceanside perennial gardens. We loved our house but it did not feel like a home. Now it is the joy of our lives. It has an energy of love and happiness and is an Oceanside Retreat for friends and family. It is so wonderful now! It is filled with laughter and joy thanks to a number of sessions with Maura. She helped us map out the right plans, came up with a perfect methodology and execution. It worked so well that I had to have Maura do the same for our flat in Tribeca. She worked her magic and it became my home away from home. Thank you Maura! We are close to purchasing our next property and will only do so with you by our side through the entire process!

We would tell anyone, interested in opening their mind and heart to learning different ways of living and seeing, to consult with Maura. Her ability to make the concepts within Feng Shui come alive for the novice practitioner are unsurpassed. Her passion for her work, warmth and spirit has stayed with us helping to make our house the home of our dreams, and for that we are forever grateful.
