Valerie Brodar
Reiki Master & Urban Farmer

Thank you for visiting….

Before I tell you a bit about me I wish to express my deepest gratitude to Curt and Olivia because without these two marvelous people I’d never be on this healing path. Thank you to Olivia Lundberg, Reiki Master Teacher, for her expansive teachings and boundless caring.

A special thank you to Curt, my life partner, whose compassion and support as well as a healthy dose of scientific skepticism has kept me reaching for the stars and grounded here on earth.

My holistic healing practice includes: Reiki sessions for people and our feathered, furry, and scaly friends; energy clearings for your home and workplace; earth healing dimensional maps, Akashic Records readings;  and urban nano farming consultations.

Please visit the Offerings tab on this site for more information on each practice.

I’ve been a Reiki practitioner for over four years and am a registered Reiki Master through the International Association of Reiki Professionals. I’ve worked with people of all ages, genders, ethnicities, economic backgrounds and professions and I look forward to working with you, whoever your wonderful self may be!

All animals benefit and enjoy receiving Reiki. I’ve helped bees, cats, chickens, dogs, horses and llamas heal from injuries, ease distress and transition to their next life.

Additionally I’m certified in Akashic Records readings, Healing with Crystals, Karuna Reiki and Earth Healing and Dimensional Mapping.

An integral part of healing is eating. I received a Master Gardener and Building Farmers Certificate from the Colorado State University Extension,  but most importantly have been farming since I was a child in a small town in Pennsylvania. We have a small flock of delightful chickens and hives of busy bees. Working toward the future we’re collaborating with a number of farmers, organizations, and scientists to establish a non-profit to create as many nano farms as possible whether it’s one pot on the porch or an abandoned lot next door.

As an artist, avid reader of physics, Zen Buddhist and world traveler I received a MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BFA from Carnegie Mellon University. These ways of engaging body, mind and spirit deeply inform and expand my healing and farming practice.

As a professor for over 25 years at Arizona State University West, Notre Dame University Louaize, Beirut, Lebanon, the University of Colorado Colorado Springs and as Co-Director for the Bachelor of Innovation I enjoyed helping students find their passion for learning and learned much from them in return. I continue to teach classes on Reiki and urban nano farming through the Pikes Peak Library District.

Traveling has taught me about the billions of ways of being in the universe. I’ve had the good fortune to live in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Arizona, Colorado, Beirut and London as well as traveled to twenty-one countries across Africa, Europe, the Middle East, North, Central and South America. Some of the most delightful travel has been with Curt as part of his goal to visit every county in the United States, all 3,141of them.

Come share your journey, the road is enchanting.
