Truth Steven

Blessings! My name is Truth and I am an Usui/Holy Fire Karuna Reiki Master and 200hr YTT instructor. I am an affiliated member of The International Center for Yoga Training [ICRT] as well as Yoga Alliance [YA]. I’ve been practicing Reiki for five years now and teaching for four! I completed my Usui/Holy Fire Karuna Reiki Training in Kyoto, Japan, at Kurama Mountain [the birthplace of the Usui Healing Method] with the ICRT in 2018 and began teaching yoga in 2019 after completing my training at Samastah in Ferndale.

I was born in Detroit and I enjoy traveling in addition to all things that involve being outdoors within the warmth of the glorious sunshine. Aside from the norm, I am also a rock hound – I love mining for rocks, collecting rocks, and even climbing rocks!

In 2017, I quit my career at a multi-billion dollar company to pursue a passion in healing, creativity, empowerment, and community! I’ve never been happier! I started a small business, Transitions by Truth. My offerings include Reiki Certification Courses, Private/Personalized Yoga Sessions and hand-crafted gemstone jewelry.

I also offer group yoga classes at Elevated Yogi, my first yoga home before YTT. #fullcircle 🙂

Class Offering One: Kirtan+ Gentle Hatha

Kirtan is associated with an ancient yoga practice called Bhakti Yoga. When practicing Kirtan, the breath and sound are engaged to chant devotional mantra.

Class will begin with Kirtan accompanied by beautiful sounds of the harmonium. Participants are encouraged to sing/chant, clap, dance, etc. Let your heart guide you! Kirtan will be followed by a gentle Hatha flow.

Bahkti and Hatha Yoga are amongst the six paths of yoga. Bahkti means “to share” and is simply the path of devotion. Hatha [“ha” meaning sun and “tha” meaning moon] offers a series of yoga postures that promote balance and strength within the body.

The total length of entire class is expected to last anywhere between 60-75 minutes.

Class Offering Two: Holy Fire Reiki Healing Experience

Reiki is a simple, yet powerful intuitive healing art that is essentially known for its benefits aiding in pain management, removing energy blockages, relieving stress and promoting an overall sense of well-being. The word Reiki is translated from Japanese as Universal Life Force Energy [Rei = Universal Spiritual Consciousness; Ki = Life Force Energy].

Holy Fire Reiki is a system of Reiki healing that provides enhanced purification, transformation, empowerment and guidance. Within the Holy Fire Healing Experience, dormant unhealed energy is released and alignment with the authentic self is activated.

The Holy Fire Healing Experience is broken down into two parts. The first part will involve scanning the body and taking notes. The second half will offer a brief visual exercise that leads into the healing experience. Participants will be given the opportunity to share their experience towards the end. The entire experience can last anywhere from 60-75 minutes and will required a journal and something to write with. Additional items to consider bringing are a yoga mat and/or blanket, a cushion, and water.

How long have you been practicing? 7 years.
