"Fair winds and following seas."
- A sailor's blessing for good fortune and a safe journey.
Being near water has always brought me solace. As an ESL Instructor, I had the opportunity to live abroad and to teach on cruise ships traversing the globe. Through this experience, I developed an even stronger affinity for the ocean, and for those who navigate her waters. When I decided to start my own Reiki practice, I reflected on what imagery I could use to represent the soothing effects of Reiki and mindfulness. The beauty and calm of the sea came to mind,
and Fair Winds Reiki & Mindfulness was born.
Fair Winds Reiki & Mindfulness began as a way to share the transformative tools and knowledge I have gathered to build a happier, healthier life and mindset for myself. (Upon learning Reiki, I wondered, "Why have I never heard of this before?" Over the years I've added my artwork and my mom's crocheting to my offerings.
Laureen is a writer, a teaching artist, and a Reiki Master-Teacher. She has traveled to over 30 countries and hopes to add many more to that number in the future! She has a background in higher education, where she taught ESL and Italian. She can now be found exploring and sharing her talents and passions through her art, her writing and her Reiki practice: Fair Winds Reiki & Mindfulness.
Laureen's debut travel memoir On My Eye: What I Learned of Love & Life from a Syrian-Kurdish Refugee in Istanbul is available on Amazon.
She is currently recording the audiobook version of this memoir and a series of short stories on Vella as well as ESL companion materials for all of her stories.
Laureen's degree in Fine Art took a back seat to travel once she studied abroad and fell in love with Italy. She switched gears and studied to teach English as a Second Language, which allowed her to travel extensively. Upon her return to the States, she began to explore making art again. Her recent works are influenced by her physical travels and her own spiritual journey. Her artwork and her mother's crocheting are available for sale through Fair Winds.
