I Updated My Story About Republishing Beyond Motivation

I just finished editing and updating the story about my journey to republish BEYOND MOTIVATION by James T. McCay.

It was just about a year ago, November 2016, that I moved back to Montreal, Quebec (my hometown) after being away for more than 35 years; and thankfully my energy is returning after being in and out of hospitals in Toronto due to diverticulosis. But it has been a long haul in recovery.

So, now the adventure continues with BEYOND MOTIVATION as I learn more about promoting and marketing a book.

Practicing Reiki in Toronto

I am practicing Reiki in Toronto. I do not do this full time but see a few clients each week.

I do Reiki treatments in a holistic spa in Chinatown in downtown Toronto. My clients often take advantage of the fact that they can receive a relaxing massage from an experienced Chinese massage therapist either before or after our Reiki treatment. A number of clients like to have the Reiki treatment begin during the last 30 minutes of a 60 minute massage. Very relaxing.

I have been a Reiki Practitioner since 1993 and had the joy of being trained by 3 wonderful Reiki Masters.

I look forward to sharing energy and the benefits of Reiki with you.
