A life of learning and healing
Born in Toronto to Serbian parents, Alexandra was constantly attuning herself to methods of resonance. She studied music and language giving her entry to the more subtle spheres learning. Alexandra’s learning quickly turned to healing and intensified when she went to India in the 90’s where she spent many years on pilgrimage living in remote areas under simple conditions. There she immersed herself in spiritual philosophy, literature and classical Indian music. Through a series of profound experiences — loss, love, betrayal and annihilation — she needed to find a new way of being. Using energy healing to transform, Alexandra realized she could share what she learned to help others learn to live in more authentic ways.
Her first step towards Reiki certification, occurred in India learning the Usui System of Natural Healing. In New York, Alexandra continued her studies in becoming a Reiki Master Teacher and completed the Advanced Integrated Energy Therapy program at the Omega Institute. In Portland, she studied advanced level shamanic “Compassionate Depossession” training with Betsy Bergstrom.
Guided to relocate, Alexandra moved her healing practice to the Bay Area in 2010. Further expanding her approach, Alexandra has received a Master Hypnotist Diploma from the Hypnotherapy Training Institute of Northern California. Alexandra is an Ordained Minister and attends and assists weekly class at The Foundation for Spiritual Development in San Rafael where she is an advanced student.
She participated at the annual Women’s Spa Day at the JCC with Pamela Miles in NYC, Vibrant Reiki Community Clinic in San Francisco and at the Charlotte-Maxwell Complementary Clinic for women with cancer also in San Francisco.
Inspiration from John of God
In 2009, Alexandra experienced a revelation. While attending a healing event with Brazilian healer John of God, he looked into her hand and called the surrounding people over. “See the hand of a healer!” he said, showing her hand to them. “I will help you.” he told her, “Come to Brazil.”
That powerful moment led to Alexandra spending three months in Brazil, where the healer’s dedication, gentleness and grace inspired the same in her. Deeply moved by her encounter, Alexandra’s healing capabilities grew and she began to offer her gifts to people in need. She has made many trips to Brazil since then.
On a personal note
A Toronto native, Alexandra is an avid traveler and speaks Serbian, French and Hindi fluently. Other passions include classical piano and North Indian classical temple music.
