About Dawn Hancy

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


I have been studying and practicing Reiki since 2009 and continue to discover more beautiful gifts of Reiki every day through my self-Reiki, professional practice, teaching, volunteering and creating community wellness programs.


In the last five years, I have founded my 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.  


I enjoy teaching and serving people of all ages with Reiki from children at camp to elders in nursing homes, survivors of trauma, and hospice patients and their families.


I am 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. 


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