She is actively preserving the simple way that Hawayo Takata and her mother, Wanja Twan, have practised and taught Reiki. Anneli has been a Reiki Master since 1984 and has students throughout North America and Europe. Anneli is also an experienced weaver, trained in the Swedish tradition by her mother.

Don is a Pipe Carrier and a Sweat Lodge-Man, earning the right to conduct sacred ceremonies over thirty years ago. He is honoured to share these ancient teachings and has conducted sacred ceremonies in Canada, Finland, Germany, Sweden and the UK.
