My name is Eloise de Leon (aka Eloisa) 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 was initiated into Transcendental Meditation at age 18 (1971) and attended their three-month Teacher Training course (phase 1) in Fairfield, IA just before the birth of my daughter who was coincidentally born on Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s birthday! I learned the practice of Mindfulness through many sittings and mindfulness walks with Zen Buddhist Master, Thich Nhat Hanh. I do not follow any religion; I follow my heart. And I am deeply grateful for all of the teachers who have graced my path.
Education: I have a B.A. in Urban Studies and Planning from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD); M.A. in Counseling (cross cultural counseling) through the Department of Education’s CBB program (SDSU); and M.F.A. in Visual Arts (UCSD). I was awarded a two-year post-graduate artist research fellowship from the University of California MEXUS which I served at UC Riverside.
Service is an important calling in my life. I am a founding member of the San Diego Reiki Corps and for five years I served on their Reiki team at Sharp’s Memorial Hospital for Oncology patients. Once I moved to NYC, I joined the volunteer team at You Can Thrive in NYC, for women with breast cancer.
From 2016 – 2018, I served in the Peace Corps in Guatemala. It was an extraordinary experience in which I work with educators in rural schools. I was even able to teach the teachers and several classrooms of students the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)! I also led and co-led several Reiki trainings outside of the school system. The role of a Peace Corps Volunteer is three-fold: provide technical assistance*; help people in your country of service to better understand the diversity of U.S. culture; and help Americans understand the culture of your country of service. *Technical assistance refers to the volunteers’ specific jobs which overall work toward social and economic development. If you feel an interest and calling to the Peace Corps, I encourage you to apply! There is no age limit though you must be in good health and have the education or commensurate experience required for the position you seek.
Currently, I serve as a Volunteer Advocate in Mt. Sinai Beth Israel Hospital’s Victim Services Program. I provide support to people who arrive in the E.R. after sexual assault or domestic violence. Each year a team of volunteers enters the program and receives over 40 hours of training for this work. Training actually continues throughout one’s service through group round-tables and de-briefings with the program supervisor. I have learned a lot in this process. I am humbled by the dedication of staff and social workers that run this program.
I highly encourage everyone to find ways to volunteer. The reward of service is in helping people regain their strength (empowerment). It also 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).
My passion project in life is working with Rosaria Cabrera as she transmits messages from Divine Mother. The messages are beautiful teachings that support the ascension of humanity and the earth. In 2013 I self-published the teachings under the title, All Light, All One: Teachings from Sacred Mother. Rosaria and I now are revising the book’s format and title. We intend to publish it anew in 2020. I can’t wait to share the new book with the public! We continue to work closely with Divine Mother on the book and she has given us many new teachings for new publications. Anyone know a publisher?
And in case you wondered, I am a mother and mother-in-law to two wise adult-children and their wonderful spouses, and a grandmother to two adorable children.
