Margaret’s yoga class is a treat for body, mind and spirit. It is amazing how much connection happens with a virtual format. Her classes leave me feeling inspired, relaxed and refreshed. She is an amazing teacher and generously shares her wealth of knowledge and wisdom with kindness and acceptance of wherever her students are. I feel very honored and fortunate to be able to attend her classes.
Timothy first began practicing meditation and studying energy healing in the mid-1990s, this is when he was first exposed to Reiki.
In 1998, he joined the U.S. Army as an infantryman with the 101st Airborne Division, 187th Infantry Regiment, and the 1st Infantry Division, 2nd Bn, 2nd Infantry Regiment. During his seven years of honorable service, he attained the rank of Sergeant, deployed three times including combat in Iraq from 2004 to 2005.
When the uniform is hung up, service does not end. In 2007, Mr. Grossman became a professional advocate for nationally chartered DAV®, a 501(c)(4) veterans organization representing 1.2 million veterans nationally. He later went to work for Wounded Warrior Project® in Washington, D.C. the nation's premier voice for Post 9/11 wounded, ill, and injured, whose programs encompass mind, body, and engagement.
It was within these later years he collaborated and most importantly witnessed the growth that holistic programming had on the minds, bodies, and spirits of traumatized persons and their family units.
From 2016 to 2020, Mr. Grossman began to approach his personal recovery through reengaging with meditation techniques, retreats, holistic programming, with the support of a team of caring medical professionals. Through this process, he was internally guided to study and practice Usui/Holy Fire® III Reiki alongside renewing and refining his studies to teach mindfulness and meditation as a co-modality.
Mr. Grossman's desire is to help all who seek it, especially those who have experienced trauma or illness in all its forms, to experience the benefits of Reiki and mindful awareness. If they so desire, to learn and develop a personal practice as a means to enhance their healing of mind, body, and spirit so as to begin their own unfolding in a manner that makes sense to each person.
Mr. Grossman earned a Bachelor of Science in Integrated Studies and Communications, magna cum laude, from Indiana Wesleyan University. He is a Usui/Holy Fire® III Reiki Master Teacher and Professional Member of Reiki Membership Association (RMA) through the International Center for Reiki Training (ICRT).
He has mentored and studied under several accomplished Usui/Holy Fire® Reiki Master Teachers to include Joan Ruggiero, Tracey Sullivan, William Lee Rand, and Deborah O'Brien.
He has also taken several courses through the Engaged Mindfulness Institute (EMI) to include Trauma-Informed Facilitation & Teaching.
His continuing professional development includes the highly respected Certified Mindfulness Teacher Professional designation accredited by the International Mindfulness Teachers Association (IMTA), and a Certificate in Consciousness Studies and Self-Awareness from the Academy of Research for Cultivation of Indian Sciences-ARCIS (Kolkata, West Bengal, India).
