About Dawn Hancy, Reiki Master Teacher

and Founder of Essential Arts

Dawn loves introducing people to the surprizing simplicity and gentle power of Reiki, and helping practitioners discover and develop their Reiki path and practice.  


She has been studying and practicing Reiki since 2009 and continues to discover more beautiful gifts of Reiki every day through her self-Reiki, professional practice, teaching, volunteering and creating community wellness programs.


Dawn founded her private practice, The Essential Art of Reiki, and Integrated Community Resilience, a nonprofit program that brings Reiki and other wellness practices to populations with limited access and resources.  


She enjoys teaching and serving people of all ages with Reiki from children at camp to elders in nursing homes and even hospice patients and their families.


Dawn is the Reiki program coordinator at Gifford Medical Center and Orange County Coordinator and board member with the Vermont Reiki Association as well as a member of Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals. 


Her recent project, The Essential Art of Reiki on iFundWomen, successfully completed Phase 1 of a crowdfunding campaign for a pilot project to expand her offerings to help people achieve Optimal Wellness and Success, and to create Healing Hospitality in a Bed & Breakfast setting in central Vermont.
