My name is Eloisa de Leon and I am a Reiki Master, certified Life Coach, certified Hypnotist, Ordained Spiritual Minister, and N.A.D.A. Ear Acupuncturist. I trained in energy metaphysics under the mentorship of Rev. Chriss Lemmon; mentored in curandismo (spiritual healing) with Madre Sarita (Mexican curandera); trained in creativity coaching with Eric Maisel; trained in acupressure with Michael Reed Gach, and trained in Holodynamics with Dr. V. Vernon Woolf. I have been meditating since age 18 (1971). I learned Mindfulness practice through many sittings and mindfulness walks with Zen Buddhist Master, Thich Nhat Hanh. I do not follow any religion; I follow my heart.
Academically, I earned my B.A. in Urban Studies and Planning (UCSD); M.A. in Counseling Education (SDSU); and M.F.A. in Visual Arts (UCSD). I was awarded a two-year post-graduate artist fellowship from UC MEXUS which I served at UC Riverside.
Service is an important calling in my life, and it has guided me to jobs and volunteer roles throughout my adult life. I was a founding member of the San Diego Reiki Corps of San Diego. For five years I served on the Reiki team at Sharp’s Memorial Hospital for Oncology patients. I volunteered my Reiki services for five years at You Can Thrive in NYC, for women with breast cancer. From 2016 – 2018, I served in the Peace Corps in Guatemala (an extraordinary experience!). Currently, I serve as a Volunteer Advocate at Mt. Sinai Beth Israel Hospital, supporting people seeking help in the emergency department after sexual assault or domestic violence. I highly encourage everyone to find ways to volunteer. The reward of service is that you get to help people remember their strengths and resources, and it deepens the heart and one’s capacity for compassion and understanding.

I also pursue a blend of spiritual and creative practice through writing, photography and videography. I co-produced the documentary, Colors of Compassion: Teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh (2010).
In 2013, I edited the book, All Light, All One: Teachings from Sacred Mother. The book offers beautiful teachings about ascension for humanity and Mother Earth. The teachings were channeled by Rosaria Cabrera who continues to channel important messages from the Sacred Mother energy. Cabrera and I are now working on an updated, expanded version of the book.
