Meet Your Teacher
Marika Hamahata (she/her) is an Ainu-Japanese-American medicine woman born & raised on the traditional lands of the Duwamish Tribe, also known as Seattle, WA.
"I took the same Reiki training that everyone else does - nearly 10 years ago. Being a cultural carrier of the Japanese lineage, I couldn't understand why I was left feeling so confused after my training. I've spent the last 10 years finding answers to the questions my Reiki teachers couldn't give me, and creating a Reiki practice that is in deeper alignment with my ancestral traditions".
Working with other teachers & elders, and spending many years in relationship with the land, Marika's practice is what she calls an "emergent practice" - emergent of the land that has raised her, her mixed ancestral traditions, and her own medicine.
