Decolonizing Mental Health & Spirituality
REIKI REFRESH & MORE AT RYERSON/X UNIVERSITY
Millions of Canadians experience the pain of living with mental illness, as do their families, friends, and colleagues. As few as one in six youth with mental illness will access appropriate treatment. The TRSM (Ted Rogers School of Management) CARES team received reiki sessions throughout the event, facilitated by Sheena Dennise.
Sheena has also several facilitated various Reiki and/or mindfulness group sessions for the entire Ryerson University employee population on behalf of the Human Resources' Wellbeing Services office, for the Ted Rogers School of Management staff and faculty as a self-development and wellness tool, for the employees of the Student Affairs department as well as for the Crafting With The Aunties, an Indigenous-initiated Solstice gathering.

"I found the experience worked wonders for me! It provided sheer relaxation, and given this was the first time I have enjoyed distance Reiki, I have to say I'm impressed. The experience provided the outcome I was looking for and the reiki healer helped me feel relaxed from the outset 🖤"
Sharon N. / I.T. ASSOCIATE / London, United Kingdom
Sheena performed Reiki sessions for me the last few months, and it was a worthwhile experience. From feeling more energy, to being more positive, and overall sense of calm. I really recommend Sheena as she truly is there to help and provide her expertise. I always felt comfortable in her presence and felt safe sharing my experiences with her. Thank you, Sheena!
Sneha D. / Leader of People & Culture / Humi
“I have no doubt that the work I did with Sheena over a period of two months, created a clearing for magic to show up in my life and the lives of people around me. At the beginning of the year my daughter and I had made a list of things we’d wanted to accomplish on our own and together. Many of the items on this list were by my own admission far-fetched and unlikely. Regardless of that fact, I shared the list with Sheena and requested that we focus our sessions around the possibility of these items becoming real.
Sure enough, her powerful energy encouraged a powerful shift and suddenly my daughter and I were being flown to LA to meet and audition with Hollywood movie stars and directors, the impossible dream of owning our own home became a reality and my financial stresses turned into financial abundance. These occurrences were not manifested out of thin air and through energy only, they took real work and patience and discipline. But, without Sheena and her magnificent gift, I can confidently say, my life would not be what it is today.”

“Sheena read my cards at a fashion event in March of 2010 at a time when I was on the job hunt. She told me to be patient and that a great job opportunity would open up to me in June of that year. Sure enough, I had a round of interviews and ultimately got a brand new job in my field by the end of June 2010! My reading was bang on and very encouraging when I needed it most! Great job Sheena!”

"Reiki is always really popular with the employees. It provides the participants an opportunity to slow down, ground themselves and calm their nervous system in real time. It’s a session we almost always have a waitlist for. . . . All the participants were so grateful we moved it online.”
Natalie Roach / Mental Health Coordinator / Ryerson University
“She gave me specific dates corresponding to what might show up more vividly for me as far ahead as 2017! I wrote down notes to reference and will probably look at them or think of them often. She was super positive in her approach and left me feeling happy and light.
I found that she went into depth with a lot of the information and I got an immediate picture in my mind of what she was talking about! Sheena has a great knowledge base and knows where to reference information she needs to support her insights.”
