"In every culture and in every medical tradition before ours, healing was accomplished by moving energy."
Nobel Laureate in Medicine
My name is Csilla Toth and I am an Usui/Tibetan Reiki Master Teacher and Shamanic Practitioner.
As a child, I heard the call to healing. In my heart, I explored the possibility of becoming a doctor but that didn’t sound right. Next, I thought about becoming a massage therapist or a dentist but those didn’t resonate with me either. I loved pretending to be a teacher, and dreamed of being a lawyer helping those who couldn’t advocate for themselves. But I knew deep in my heart that those were not my calling.
My real journey started with the war in Yugoslavia. The life and the country that I knew were destroyed and with them some of my dreams, too. Yet that time brought me back to my path, to the exploration of energy and energy medicine.
I started studying energy medicine in the late 1990’s with Dr. Ljubisa Stojanovic and remained his student until I came to the USA in 2004. Here I found the freedom to pursue my love for energy medicine and began studying Reiki with the Usui/Tibetan Reiki Master Teacher Colleen Benelli. With that first attunement, I knew I had found my home, my passion and my purpose.
Reiki is a powerful healing force; yet I felt the need to deepen my knowledge and understanding of energy so I enrolled in classes with the Lightsong School of Shamanic Studies and Energy Medicine and have been studying with Jan Engels – Smith since 2011. This gave me lots of different tools to use in my healing sessions.
I also studied Shamanic Sound Healing with Dr. Lauri J. Shainsky, which allowed me to open up my voice and bring in healing through sacred songs, drumming, rattling and singing bowls.
The journey continues. I seek opportunities to learn and grow every day so that the healings we bring in together become more powerful and impactful.
