Canvas Rebel Interviews Reiki Master Teacher, Donna McDine

Canvas Rebel


I'm over the moon for the second time this week! 


I'm tickled pink to announce my interview by David Tan of Canvas Rebel Magazine. It was and continues to be a pure delight to connect with David in such an intimate interview, as I don't typically like to share too much about myself. I'm much better at getting to know others rather the other way around.


Special thanks goes to my metaphysical mentor, Melissa Paone Somma of the LightClub Curiosity Shoppe (Sugar Loaf and Warwick, NY) for introduction. 

Full interview at Canvas Rebel.
