    Cheryl Benanti

    Reiki Master

    Cheryl Benanti is a Reiki Master and owner of Reiki Will Travel LLC, a mobile business traveling to home and business's for private sessions and special events. 
    Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) is a gentle 'hands-on' relaxation and healing technique. Reiki is administered through a soft touch while sitting or lying down – fully clothed. It is a holistic therapy that removes blocks to the flow of energy in your body and facilitates balance and support on many levels. When the energy flow in your body is restored and/or balanced, you are more likely to feel relaxed and your body’s natural healing abilities are utilized.
    Reiki can be used to complement or enhance your current medical plan or simply provide the opportunity for deep relaxation. Reiki also promotes psychological healing, including release of anger, fear, worry, sadness and other unhealthy feelings, and replaces them with self-worth, tranquility. It can increase confidence, ease chronic pain. Reiki can also lessen anxiety and tension, decrease fatigue, strengthen the immune system, reduce the effects of stress and provide a sense of well being and peace. The client may feel warmth, coolness, gentle tingling and/or a deep sense of relaxation. Reiki balances the energies of the body and works on physical, emotional and spiritual levels.

    Daniel Allen

    Growth and Potential Specialist

    “I’m not going to let you quit.”

    This is what my father told me before I started playing football my freshman year of high school. 

    I quit several years prior in Pop Warner, twice!

    What followed was many years of growth, through blood, sweat, and tears that culminated in a capstone season as a captain my senior year at Southern Connecticut State University and professional aspirations (almost) realized.

    Through it all, my father's words would ring in my ear every time it got hard. During every sprint I didn’t want to do. In every cold and rainy practice. Under every rep in the weight room I didn’t believe I could finish…

    “I’m not going to let you quit.”

    It didn’t matter if I was playing 10 minutes away from home or across the country, my father was always with me in this way. Not forcing me to play, but believing in me. Rooting for me. Being my champion. My father knew that I was capable of more and he held me to that high standard and committed me to stick it out from the beginning. 

    Now, I am the same for others. 

    As a coach, I see what others cannot see in their own life and champion them in the creation of their own miracles. I am not an expert in your life, but you are, and together we can co-create your next business move, a million dollar idea, or even a more loving relationship with yourself. All of your answers are already inside of you, I’m here to support you to see them.

    I have worked with and championed individuals who are CEO’s and entrepreneurs to pro athletes, artists, television personalities and stay at home mothers. It doesn’t matter what walk of life you come from, coaching will change your life. Because once you’re committed to realizing your goal, it’s already done and, 

    “I’m not going to let you quit.”

    Conversations are available through appointment only.

    Sara Putney

    Intuitive, Adversity Healing & Abundance Practitioner

    Sar comes from a lineage of addiction. Her birth parents were drug addicts and alcoholics who lost custody of her when she was 6 weeks old. She was raised as an only child by a single mother.
    Although she always felt more sensitive than those around her, she expressed a positive outlook on life, hiding the excruciating pain she experienced in her heart. Her journey is centered around healing her trauma, accepting herself and allowing her most abundant life to unfold.
    She believes that when we own who we are at an energetic level, despite the adversity we've faced, and tap into the abundance we are innately worthy of, we can create the world we imagine.
    Sar supports spiritual, working women in practicing deep self-acceptance, freeing ourselves from scarcity, and allowing all of the abundance we truly desire. She facilitates sacred, transformational space through energetics, emotions & embodiment; only incorporating the tools that have worked for her.
